As residentgrigo suggested, our last age poll was a little over 6 years ago. Has the users of the site aged up? Or have people stopped reading manga and just gotten replaced by new people?

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

Previous Poll Results:
Question: If a non-Japanese person that lives in Japan made a comic, would you still consider it "manga"?
Choices:
Only if it had manga-style artwork - votes: 1807 (36.4%)
Only if it was published by a Japanese company or made for the Japanese manga market - votes: 1538 (31%)
Only if they had help from Japanese assistants - votes: 16 (0.3%)
Only if they were originally born in Japan - votes: 44 (0.9%)
Only if it was written in Japanese - votes: 423 (8.5%)
Not at all - votes: 152 (3.1%)
Yes, absolutely - votes: 989 (19.9%)
There were 4969 total votes.
The poll ended: May 9th 2020

Now what makes an anime?

I hope that the age ranges make sense. 31-35. Not much to discuss here.

I am rapidly "aging out" of the target demographic for adult manga. US TV/film loves the 18-49 demographic but the mid-30s seem to be it with manga when it comes to the upper end. Works/magazines that more or less target readers above 30 (Golgo 13 and those endless golf and gambling manga) exist of course but the air gets thin when it comes to anime.

The market will have to die before I stop reading comics but the 2020s are off to a great start on that...

I was here 6 years ago and I'm still here now. Wonder when/if I'll quit, since I currently feel no inclination to do so. Anyway! 28-30 age bracket for me.

I'll be 31 later this year.

I was here 6 years ago and thought I'd never stop reading manga. But I'm reading a lot less manga now compared to before, so I wouldn't be surprised if I stopped reading it in a few years.

Hahaha, I'm in the 28-30 range. Most people I know that used to like anime and manga don't anymore. I definitely haven't grown out of it though πŸ™‚

I've known this sites since I was in middle school, around the first time I read manga from sites like OneManga (it still existed at that time) and MangaFox. I think it was 11 or 12 years ago? It was later on I registered myself as a user though..

I'm 25 now. I'm just a reader, not a scanlator.. But I love that you have a great database about manga, manhwa, manhua, and even webtoons from all over the world.

The sites haven't changed much since the first time I opened it. I mainly used this site to keep my reading list, in case I forgot about it.

I'm 25, going on 26, which is wild considering I've been here for eleven years already, so I joined when I was only 14! Man, I was basically a baby then.

While I've had brief periods of manga inactivity (previously caused by school, now caused by work), I always come back to it in the end, and it's become such a natural part of my life that I doubt I'll ever stop at this point. (I really do need to trim down my reading lists, though...)

31-35, so I’m happy to see that quite a few respondents are in that age range and it’s not just me here with kids the age of my niece 🀣

You can find the old results if you scroll back far enough. Here is the discussion, and here are the results. Looks so far to be a slight age-up, but since this poll was conducted six years ago, it seems like we got more new members in the interval rather than the old ones growing up.

I've been reading manga since about 7-8 years & I came across MangaUpdates around 4-5 years ago. Made my account quite a while later, around 2 years ago. I've always been an avid reader of not only comics & novels but also other types of books. I don't think that I'll ever stop using MangaUpdates. Bracket 21-23 for me.

14-17. I came across this site 6 months ago though I haven't really been active since a month ago. I've been reading manga since I was 10, although I have vague memories of some mangas.
