Welcome to Baka-Updates - Manga Division

Manga is basically the Japanese equivalent of what you might know as comic books. They have a very unique style which has developed over many years. We hope here you can learn to appreciate the art that is manga and become an avid manga fan!

New Poll - Original Series
Another poll suggested by jacob66. How many new series are original? Although in the comments below, maybe you can split them by types too. For example, I feel like manhua generally is less innovative.

New Poll - Virtual Reality
This week's poll was suggested by jacob66. There's been a lot of series that explore playing with virtual reality, of which some examples are Sword Art Online or Ready Player One, possibly getting "stuck" in the game. If those games existed, would you play them? Or would you avoid them because of the dangers to your brain?

New Poll - Source of Superpowers
This week's poll was suggested by jacob66. His prompt initially gave the example of different iterations Spider-Man and how each version gives its own explanation to the source of his powers. What's your preference? The 3 sources were sourced from this Wikipedia article.

New Poll - Middle of the Action
This week's poll was suggested by jacob66. You know that storytelling technique of dropping you off in the middle of the action and then doing a flashback of all the events that led up to that moment? Like in the movies where they go "Yup, that's me. You're probably wondering how I got into this situation". Do you like this technique?
