New Poll - Obsessive Checking...
New poll about how often you check up for new releases. This one was suggested quite a while back by member c_k.
You can discuss the new poll here:

Previous Poll Stats:
Question: Do you consider yourself an otaku?
OMG YES!! Manga/anime is life~! Need it as often as oxygen ;D - votes: 1852 (18.7%)
More or less. Not 100% obsessive, but I think manga/anime are some of the best things ever - votes: 4512 (45.5%)
Not really. I read manga and/or watch anime often, but I still put my social life over that stuff - votes: 2808 (28.3%)
No. I just read manga and/or watch anime when I'm bored - votes: 533 (5.4%)
EWW NO! Get that word out of my sight. - votes: 210 (2.1%)
There were 9915 total votes.
The poll ended: May 31st 2008

Quite a popular poll! A good chunk of people really like anime/manga, but not enough to die for it...

I guess most of us are too embarrassed to do much with cosplay, eh? (Including me actually...)

Cosplay Poll
Another late poll...but this time because I was busy all of yesterday due to my first prom! (No pictures for you guys, sorry) Anyways, the poll this time is about dressing up, actually~ (maybe not a suit/tux/dress, but still...)

Question: How often or extensively do you cosplay?
The idea was stolen from our member funkmu1 (who is also the coordinator of our mascot contest right now)

You can discuss this new poll on our forum here:
Feel free to post any interesting cosplay experiences! (Either doing it yourself, or seeing some...weird people doing it...Man-fay anyone?)

A TON of people seem to like the tomboy attitude. Also, based on the number of people that voted "other", I guess my poll choices really sucked, eh? Anyways, a new poll, a new result~

(And if you haven't voted for a mascot yet, you BETTER check it out!)
