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, 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 - OP/ED Out loud
This week's poll was suggested by kayue. It riffs out last week's poll

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

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Do you try to learn the lyrics of anime openings/endings (OP/ED)?
Choices:
I don't even bother trying - votes: 2059 (35.6%)
Just because I try doesn't mean I succeed - votes: 836 (14.5%)
Maybe just a couple of songs - votes: 669 (11.6%)
Just my favorite songs - votes: 1992 (34.4%)
I'm a lyrical genius and know all the lyrics to every show I watch - votes: 228 (3.9%)
There were 5784 total votes.
The poll ended: March 31st 2018

I'm actually really surprised by these results, as I expected less people to try since most of you probably don't know Japanese fluently

New Poll - OP/ED
This week's poll was suggested by zeazea. Do you try to learn the lyrics to the OP/ED of anime? Those are the opening/ending songs. One of my friends knows the lyrics to every song in Kimi no Na wa (great movie that you should watch if you haven't already). Another friend still knows the Hare Hare Yukai dance from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, and he performed it during another friend's wedding last year.

Previous Poll Results:
Question: New series you're trying. You dislike the story but like the characters. Continue reading?
Choices:
Yes, the characters are more important to me - votes: 700 (13.7%)
Stop reading, as this just ruins it for me - votes: 467 (9.1%)
Unlikely, as I can't fully enjoy the series - votes: 1194 (23.3%)
I'll keep trying in hopes that the story improves - votes: 2757 (53.9%)
There were 5118 total votes.
The poll ended: March 23rd 2018

In general, looks like the replies had about the same percentages between the character and plot polls

New Poll - Importance of the Story
Another poll similar to a recent one, but residentgrigo suggested we put the emphasis on bad story now. Is good characters enough to keep you reading a series?

Alcohol was a more popular poll, but smoking is still 2nd most popular of all the polls in the last 5-ish months

New Poll - Smoking
Since we had an alcohol poll recently, Senrosj suggested that we talk about smoking too. I guess next week can be a poll about the substances you've smoked...

Looks like most of us will still give it a shot in the hopes of improvement. Now I wonder how many of you would drop the series once you realize the main character doesn't improve.

New Poll - Importance of the Main Character
This week's poll was suggested by icassop. With all things being equal, would you continue reading a series even though you hate the main character? Any examples of that you can remember?
