April Fools' Day Warning
In a few days is the infamous April Fools' Day (April 1st). At MU, we WILL NOT tolerate any fake/joke releases being reported/announced to us (on any day, not just April Fools). If we, by accident, allow a fake release to get through, please report the mistake to us (either via a Change Request form, through the forum, post a comment in this news post, send me a private message, or you can email me at lambchopsil[at]mangaupdates[dot]com if you are not a registered member here).

As you have been warned against doing it, if we discover a person still attempting to post a joke release here, that person will be dealt with. Severe action will be taken upon that scanlation group.

Thank you for considering our request to remain as accurate as possible for our members.

New Poll - Localized Names
This week's poll was suggested by Carmella. I'm actually not sure if this commonly happens anymore, but apparently it does because Carmella claimed "this has recently become a popular practice of a large-scale translations publisher." Didn't name the publisher though. The example I gave is from Cardcaptor Sakura.
