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 - Long Titles
This week's poll was suggested by vivant. Did you notice that recently there's been an increase in length of some series titles, especially isekai? Two examples are I'm a Middle-Aged Man Who Got My Adventurer License Revoked, but I'm Enjoying a Carefree Lifestyle Because I Have an Adorable Daughter Now and No Matter How I Look at It, It's You Guys' Fault I'm Not Popular!. What's your opinion about that?

New Poll - Recommending
This week's poll was written by me and is pretty self explanatory

You can submit poll ideas here
http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=3903

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Opinion on a sequel when the original is still ongoing? (Sequel is usually set in the far future from original)
Choices:
Great idea! New story but same world, style, or formula - votes: 221 (6.9%)
Sounds pretty confusing for a reader of both... - votes: 1006 (31.4%)
No opinion - votes: 312 (9.7%)
Horrible idea. Too much potential for spoilers. Just finish the original first! - votes: 1662 (51.9%)
There were 3201 total votes.
The poll ended: May 18th 2019

If you wanted examples, some people mentioned Nana to Kaoru, Gundam, and Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san

New Poll - Sequel of an Ongoing Series
This week's poll was suggested by jacob66. I can't actually think of an actual example of this right now, but what do you think of an ongoing series (meaning it's not finished yet) that has a sequel coming out already? I presume the sequel takes place in the far future, because that's pretty weird if it wasn't. But if you know of any examples of this, comment below!

Question: Favorite thing about a scanlation's credit page

Translation notes - votes: 914 (34.7%)
Comedy from the scanlators - votes: 1205 (45.7%)
Group news - votes: 113 (4.3%)
Original artwork - votes: 307 (11.6%)

There were 2637 total votes.

Looks like people appreciate comedy. But keep in mind that we've done 2 polls in the past about scanlator April Fools' jokes and fake releases, and the majority of people either hate them, find them annoying, or straight up ignore them.

New Poll - Credit Pages
This week's poll was suggested by jacob66. Pretty self-explanatory.

http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=3903

Previous Poll Results:
Question: When you see other people recommending series to each other (such as the I'm Looking For... forum) but you're not original questioner, do you read the series that are suggested?
Choices:
Nah, I'll only pay attention if I'm the one that asked for a recommendation - votes: 126 (4.8%)
Sometimes or seldom, as they don't always suit my tastes - votes: 1815 (69.3%)
All the time! So many hidden jewels! - votes: 679 (25.9%)
There were 2620 total votes.
The poll ended: May 4th 2019

Not a very popular poll. I think many people misunderstood my mention of the "I'm Looking For..." forum as part of the question rather than just an example of the question.
