New Poll - OS
This week's poll was suggested by Transdude1996. It's pretty similar to something we did back in 2014, but oh well. I'm a PC gamer, so Windows gets my vote.

Compared to 10 years ago, we have more people will always love manga. Looks like we weeded the rest out.

New Poll - 10 Year Challenge
Karonhioktha suggested that we do this poll. It's the exact same poll that we did slightly over 10 years ago (off by a week). It's our version of the 10 year challenge. Although now we get like half the number of votes in our polls... That's what happens when you don't offer download links or even links to the group's site anymore.

New Poll - Weather
This poll was suggested by StarlightDreams over 7 years ago. Why do all these weather conditions end with -y? This doesn't deal with temperature. It's just the weather conditions.

Dang, the majority of you have voices for your characters! I personally don't imagine voices for what I read. But if a movie comes out for it, subsequent re-reads will involve me thinking of those voices. Prime example is Harry Potter, as I read many of the books before the movies came out, but now I always have the voices of each actor in my head.

New Poll - Manga Voices
This week's poll was suggested by 8-3. When you read manga, do you "hear" the voices of the characters in your head? Maybe that mentor wizard sounds like Liam Neeson. Maybe every upstart youngster sounds like Naruto. You decide! It's your head!

New Poll - Gender Disguise
This week's poll was the second one suggested by Desert. Do you have any opinions on series where the main character disguises himself/herself as the opposite gender? Just as a side note, one of my favorite authors as a teenager was Tamora Pierce. Several of her book series feature female protagonists who disguises themselves as male to perform tasks in a patriarchal society (i.e., become a knight).

New Poll - K-pop
This week's poll was suggested by Desert. I guess we really should've done a poll about J-pop first, but I feel like K-pop is more popular.

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Opinion on Osamu Tezuka
Choices:
Who? - votes: 1934 (45.1%)
I don't care for his work - votes: 337 (7.9%)
I still have to try out his works - votes: 763 (17.8%)
I like exactly one of his creations - votes: 211 (4.9%)
I like some of his work - votes: 746 (17.4%)
I am a big fan - votes: 294 (6.9%)
There were 4285 total votes.
The poll ended: December 22nd 2018

Quite a lot of people in the comments were disheartened by the number of people who didn't know about Osamu Tezuka. I'll admit that I didn't know him by name, but I did recognize many of his works. But I haven't actually read anything he's done...
