New Poll - Weather
This poll was suggested by StarlightDreams over 7 years ago. Why do all these weather conditions end with -y? This doesn't deal with temperature. It's just the weather conditions.

Dang, the majority of you have voices for your characters! I personally don't imagine voices for what I read. But if a movie comes out for it, subsequent re-reads will involve me thinking of those voices. Prime example is Harry Potter, as I read many of the books before the movies came out, but now I always have the voices of each actor in my head.

New Poll - Manga Voices
This week's poll was suggested by 8-3. When you read manga, do you "hear" the voices of the characters in your head? Maybe that mentor wizard sounds like Liam Neeson. Maybe every upstart youngster sounds like Naruto. You decide! It's your head!

New Poll - Gender Disguise
This week's poll was the second one suggested by Desert. Do you have any opinions on series where the main character disguises himself/herself as the opposite gender? Just as a side note, one of my favorite authors as a teenager was Tamora Pierce. Several of her book series feature female protagonists who disguises themselves as male to perform tasks in a patriarchal society (i.e., become a knight).

New Poll - K-pop
This week's poll was suggested by Desert. I guess we really should've done a poll about J-pop first, but I feel like K-pop is more popular.

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Opinion on Osamu Tezuka
Choices:
Who? - votes: 1934 (45.1%)
I don't care for his work - votes: 337 (7.9%)
I still have to try out his works - votes: 763 (17.8%)
I like exactly one of his creations - votes: 211 (4.9%)
I like some of his work - votes: 746 (17.4%)

There were 4285 total votes.
The poll ended: December 22nd 2018

Quite a lot of people in the comments were disheartened by the number of people who didn't know about Osamu Tezuka. I'll admit that I didn't know him by name, but I did recognize many of his works. But I haven't actually read anything he's done...

New Poll - Osamu Tezuka
From residentgrigo, again. This poll may be strange for many of you, but please look up TEZUKA Osamu. He's known as the god, father, or godfather of manga. He's essentially the Japanese version of Walt Disney. You ever hear about Astro Boy? This poll was inspired by our recent Stan Lee poll.
