It totally turned a 180
Got more broad, so I like a wider variety of series
Got narrower, so my preferred series are very specific
Stayed pretty much the same

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 - Changing Tastes
This week's poll is from our member scsijon. Since you started reading manga (which for me was 12-ish years ago), how has your preferences changed over the years? Do you like the same kind of stuff still?

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related)

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Do you believe that loli and shota manga should not exist?
Choices:
Yes, they should never exist - votes: 2255 (32%)
No, it's just fiction - votes: 4787 (68%)
There were 7042 total votes.
The poll ended: May 21st 2016

Sorry, if I had realized that we had done a poll similar to this before, I would never have chosen it. Honestly, I feel the older poll was a lot better (the one that ended on November 22, 2014)

Yo Manga vs. Hey Manga
Over the last couple of weeks, there's been some disputes between the scanlation group Yo Manga and the aggregate/scanlation group heymanga.xyz.

  • YoManga accused HeyManga of using their raws without credit and hosting their releases without permission. And apparently the hosting is automated, as I've seen it happen within minutes of the release going up...
  • HeyManga ignores the accusations and threatens with DDoS
  • YoManga's site goes down due to DDoS (although no one can pin it on HeyManga)
  • When YoManga comes back up, they start hosting HeyManga's releases without permission (and removing HeyManga's credit pages)


So it's basically like fighting fire with fire. Neither side appears to be letting up. Even earlier today, YoManga put up HeyManga's releases of Si-Eun.

In response, we've removed all of both groups' releases from MangaUpdates.

New Poll - American Comics
This week's poll was suggested by our member residentgrigo. You read any American comics? I guess the most well known are Marvel and DC, but there's plenty of other stuff out there. And Captain America: Civil War just came out! (Great movie, by the way. I highly recommend you watch it).

New Poll - Categories
This week's poll was suggested by Trimutius. The categories listed are the top 15 most agreed categories, which is why "Rape" is there... For that option in particular, if you like, you can treat it as "most important because I want to avoid it"... Let's just say there's a lot of hentai and doujinshi in the database.
