New Poll - Sports
We did this poll 5 years ago, but princess_bubblegum suggested we do it again. The options are similar to last time, with a couple of additions and changes. I left the e-sports option as a joke answer, but still missing are things that would be considered board games. And the absence of a "None" or "Other" option is on purpose, so deal with it. Last time, the top 3 were martial arts, archery, and e-sports.

New Poll - What is this Feeling?
This week's fun little poll was suggested by Natsuyasumin. The intent is that manga often has a panel of "what is this feeling?", so fill in the blank. I also put in my own troll answers that have nothing to do with manga... Obviously not all-inclusive of every emotion you could possibly feel.

Yes, I understand that your answer depends on how good you think the series is. That's why I said it "seems alright". But anyways, most of you read pretty quickly!
