New Poll - Deus ex machina
This week's poll was suggested by jacob66. I'm not super happy with the choices, but feel free to comment below. If you don't know what "deus ex machina" means, look it up. It essentially means solving a problem by using a plot device that came out of nowhere

New Poll - Median Ratings
This is a simple but odd poll that was suggested by Shonaiula. In essence, it's about the medium score you would rate something.

April Fools' Day Warning
In a few days is the infamous April Fools' Day (April 1st). At MU, we WILL NOT tolerate any fake/joke releases being reported/announced to us (on any day, not just April Fools). If we, by accident, allow a fake release to get through, please report the mistake to us (either via a Change Request form, through the forum, post a comment in this news post, or you can email me at lambchopsil[at]mangaupdates[dot]com if you are not a registered member here).

As you have been warned against doing it, if we discover a person still attempting to post a joke release here, that person will be dealt with. Severe action will be taken upon that scanlation group.

Thank you for considering our request to remain as accurate as possible for our members.

New Poll - OP/ED Out loud
This week's poll was suggested by kayue. It riffs out last week's poll

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Do you try to learn the lyrics of anime openings/endings (OP/ED)?
Choices:
I don't even bother trying - votes: 2059 (35.6%)
Just because I try doesn't mean I succeed - votes: 836 (14.5%)
Maybe just a couple of songs - votes: 669 (11.6%)
Just my favorite songs - votes: 1992 (34.4%)
I'm a lyrical genius and know all the lyrics to every show I watch - votes: 228 (3.9%)
There were 5784 total votes.
The poll ended: March 31st 2018

I'm actually really surprised by these results, as I expected less people to try since most of you probably don't know Japanese fluently

New Poll - OP/ED
This week's poll was suggested by zeazea. Do you try to learn the lyrics to the OP/ED of anime? Those are the opening/ending songs. One of my friends knows the lyrics to every song in Kimi no Na wa (great movie that you should watch if you haven't already). Another friend still knows the Hare Hare Yukai dance from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, and he performed it during another friend's wedding last year.

Previous Poll Results:
Question: New series you're trying. You dislike the story but like the characters. Continue reading?
Choices:
Yes, the characters are more important to me - votes: 700 (13.7%)
Stop reading, as this just ruins it for me - votes: 467 (9.1%)
Unlikely, as I can't fully enjoy the series - votes: 1194 (23.3%)
I'll keep trying in hopes that the story improves - votes: 2757 (53.9%)
There were 5118 total votes.
The poll ended: March 23rd 2018

In general, looks like the replies had about the same percentages between the character and plot polls
