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 - Waking Up
This week's poll was suggested by Baltha. Assuming that you're actually living out a dream while your actual body is in a coma, would you choose to wake up and rejoin the real world? Or stay in the only world you've actually experienced?

New Poll - Reading Direction
This week's poll was inspired by Karonhioktha. Does the direction you read matter to you? I remember back in the day some English publishers flipped their releases to go left to right (instead of the original right to left). There have also been magazine series that were ported over to webtoons and removed all the paneling, so it's just single panels from top to bottom.

There were 3206 total votes.
The poll ended: April 17th 2021

Now what if there's a known transfer of consciousness (like body swapping). Should consequences go with the body or the soul?
