Greetings!

In celebration of our 15th anniversary, we’re going to give away 100 $10 gift certificates to Right Stuf International. To participate, you must have been a member on this site for at least 30 days as of noon today (EST), and you must make a post on this news thread between now and 12pm (EST) noon on July 27th. Additional posts do not increase your odds of winning. If your post is deleted due to breaking the rules, then your entry is not valid. I'm interested to see what kinds of crazy topics people come up with to talk about. I will conduct a drawing using a random number generator sometime after, and post the winners' account names. No purchase necessary. This is NOT an advertising campaign. We ask that if possible, you keep this in-house. It’s for previously registered members only.

If I’ve made a grievous legal mistake in the wording or operation of this drawing, please let me know as soon as possible so I can correct it. As a disclaimer, nothing in this post can be construed as a contract between myself, Lamb, or the MU site with any participants or winners, and we retain the right to alter the scope, rules, etc, at any time.

Thank you!
Manick, Lamb, & the rest of the MU staff

Congratulations MangaUpdates! And thank you for all the time the admin and moderators puts into it!

Hopefully you take us on the road of fantastic manga series for another 15 years.

Edit: It's a bit painful but I can't use the gift card because I live in Europe. The transportation cost is higher than the gift card is worth. And Right Stuff International doesn't have any payment option with debit card ( or Paypal ?) And digital manga ( = free shipping) isn't available.
So, I don't want it.

Happy birthday, MU! I was just checking and I've been a member for around 5 years, and I cant imagine myself without this wonderful website. Or maybe I should call it "database" haha
Thanks to all the mods and everyone who makes it possible for us to visit and be a part of this community!

Congratulations and Happy birthday!
I hope the site will live for years to come.
I don't need the card, because I'm in Europe too.

Definite congratulations are in order. When I think back all the years ago to when I first started using this site I never thought it would be here still. It took me a couple years just to finally make an account. I have been officially registered for over 11 years and in that time I have only made 22 posts. At face value it would seem that I have barely even used the site, but I have come here almost every single day over all those years. With even the most rudimentary math I put my daily visits at over 5000. I can't express how much I have been impacted by this site. There have been many sites over the years that have attempted to provide similar services, but I believe they all lacked passion. Mangaupdates may seem bare bones (especially if you consider how outside links were purged quite a while ago) but I think the care that is put into what is behind the manga is meaningful. Not settling for simply being some aggregator, I have stuck here for the effort that has been put into mainting the information about authors, serializations, and publications. Dozens and dozens of series that have become some of my favorites were only uncovered because I was able to see authors and artists behind each manga. I can't say that there aren't a host of features I'd love to see come to the site, but there is something very comforting about my routine visits the release page even when nothing is relevant for me. While I'm somewhat ashamed of being such a lurker, I hope my gratitude can at least this once be conveyed. Thank you.

Congrats! to be honest i never really thought much of this site before i started doing scanlation myself but i've found it to be an invaluable resource since and i'm grateful it exists
(btw i can't use the gift card either since shipping to canada is 20 dollars πŸ˜” maybe u want to pick something that offers digital purchases so shipping won't be an issue for future giveaways)

This thread is how I learned what Right Stuf International is! A random Youtube or podcast segment introduced me to them before but I failed to retain anything despite hearing it more than once. I now forever know what that site sells. Is that how waving free stuff works? You suddenly give a shit? Thank greedy lizard brain, I guess.

Wow, 15 years! To think that I've been a member for over 11 of those years!

MU has become such an indispensable part of my daily routine, I can't imagine what my hobby would be like without it. Let's hope for many more years of keeping us informed of the latest chapters to be released!

Congrats on the 15 years! This website was pivotal to my manga obsession during my teen years, so thanks for always being here and being the reliable source of info we need. Man I've been around here for coming up to 11 years!

I'll pass on the voucher too however. Overseas and all that makes it more difficult. I wanted to say something anyway though as this website was a big part of my teenage years after all!

Here's to another 15 yeah? 😁

Have an idea for a better europe-friendly website? I'm up for suggestions.
