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 - Fan-Colored Pages
Our user Zeyo inspired me to redo a poll that we did over a decade ago. What are your thoughts about fan-colored pages? I feel these are a lot less common now, probably because we don't have a huge amount of weekly Bleach, Naruto, and One Piece fans submitting their work to be included in scanlations

New Poll - 2021 vs 2020
I should've done this poll a couple of weeks ago, but I forgot... And some stuff already happened in the last 2 weeks that may color your answer.

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Someone offers to buy everything you own and would pay the amount necessary to replace with equivalent function. Would you take the money and start over?
Choices:
No - votes: 1747 (62.1%)
Yes - votes: 1067 (37.9%)
There were 2814 total votes.
The poll ended: January 16th 2021

I hope you're never put into the situation where insurance would be necessary to replace things.

Humble Bundle - Attack on Titan
Humble Bundle is doing another manga-related endeavor! This time it's a bunch of stuff related to Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin). You can spend money to get legitimate, DRM-free digital copies of these manga series, novels, and audiobooks. Plus, some (or all) of it goes to charity (when paying, you can adjust how much of it goes to charity).

Paying at least $20 gets you all this:
Attack on Titan
Attack on Titan: Before the Fall
Attack on Titan: Before the Fall (Novel) (including Kuklo Unbound)
Attack on Titan: Junior High
Spoof on Titan
Attack on Titan: Lost Girls
Attack on Titan: Harsh Mistress of the City (Novel)
Attack on Titan Guidebook: Inside and Outside (at least I think that's what the Attack on Titan: Anime Guide is)
Attack on Titan: No Regrets
Attack on Titan Anthology
Attack on Titan Character Encyclopedia

New Poll - Replacement Insurance
This week's poll was suggested by jacob66. The question was inspired by how some home insurance works (for example, in event of a fire where your belongings are destroyed). If someone offered to give you money in exchange for every item you owned (car, house, computer, clothes), would you do it? The amount of money you would get would be enough to buy new replacement items of similar function. Would you take this chance to start over? Or do some things have too much sentimental value?

New Poll - Loli/Shota
This week's poll was suggested by Akemi Mokoto. We've actually done similar polls back in 2014 and 2016, and the majority said that they should not be banned. I reworded the question slightly to emphasize the sexual content and see if that makes a difference.
