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 - Chapter Age
This week's poll was suggested by Transdude1996. Of the series you're presently consuming, are you mostly keeping up with new releases? Or are you binging series that have already been completed?

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Should an artist's scandals and/or controversies change opinions about their works (e.g., Bill Cosby, Michael Jackson, Tatsuya Matsuki, Nobuhiro Watsuki)?

No, the key to art is how it affects those experiencing it so it's separate from the artist - votes: 1966 (66.6%)
Yes, art is an expression of the individual so who they are and what they do matters - votes: 985 (33.4%)
There were 2951 total votes.
The poll ended: October 23rd 2021

New Poll - Artist Controversies
This week's rather serious poll was suggested by jacob66. If an artist is involved in some scandal or controversy, does that affect how you view their works? For manga examples, there's MATSUKI Tatsuya and ACT-AGE and WATSUKI Nobuhiro and Rurouni Kenshin.

New Poll - Digital Layout 2
This week's poll (suggested by Nekomikoto) is similar to last week's, but it's more about how you like to read a series than how the panels are laid out.

New Poll - Digital Layout
This week's poll was suggested by icassop. Do you vertical strips of panels like webtoons or the more traditional layout of a page of manga?

Lots of night owls here. Or maybe that's because the daytime is when the bad stuff happens (school, work, etc)

New Poll - Time of Day
This week's poll was inspired by morinchan. I guess I could've added more nighttime options like midnight, but oh well.

New Poll - Chicken Nuggets
Our member superspartan177, asking the important questions here. Do you care about the shape of a chicken nugget? Maybe it doesn't matter a whole lot, but what's your favorite shape? I see the dino nuggets at Costco a lot, and I also found a Texas-shaped nugget in a Google image search.

I grew up loving space and learning about the Apollo program. Apollo 13 is a great movie, if you've never seen it
