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

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

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

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.

New Poll - 3rd Party Recommendations
The scenario spelled out by our member vivant is specific and is as follows. You're the 3rd party observer, and you see other people giving series recommendations to each other, such as in our I'm Looking For... forum (in case you didn't know that existed). Do you ever end up reading those series that are recommended, even though you weren't the original person asking for a suggestion? Any hidden gems that you've discovered that you'd like to share?

New Poll - Message from Scanlators
This week's poll was suggested by Nekomikoto. It's kind of wordy, but oh well. The poll is specifically about words from the scanlators that are customized on each release, excluding the normal credits and recruitment page. The example Nekomikoto gave is for the scanlations of Haritoge Kuremi to Ou no Ie by Boredom Society Scanlations.

If you can choose when you die, does that count as suicide?
