This week's poll was suggested almost 10 years ago by a member named xombiemonkey. How long ago did you start reading manga?

You can submit poll ideas here

Previous Poll Results:
Question: If you already had the necessary skills (i.e. translate, Photoshop, etc), would you will be willing to do scanlations?
Already do - votes: 304 (7%)
Sure, I'd be pretty active - votes: 984 (22.5%)
Yes, but only occasionally - votes: 1980 (45.3%)
No, don't have free time - votes: 751 (17.2%)
Nope, just don't want to - votes: 354 (8.1%)
There were 4373 total votes.
The poll ended: October 6th 2017

Many people appear to be willing, so just need to get those skills

Been reading manga since before I knew it was called manga (sometime in the 80:s) though only one or two. Read some Dragonball 15-20 (think it was 2000-ish) or so years ago when they started releasing them here(Sweden).
Started reading again 6-7 years ago. Oldest downloaded manga I got is from august 2012. It's FLCL. Read a couple of thousand since then...

Manga read: ~3372
(Oneshots and H-Manga included)
~300 Ongoing...

Probably around about 10 years. I believe I started when I was 15. I've been registered on this site for 9 years...

I remember reading everything on onemanga. The good ol' days.

I had to make a guess for manga specifically. 16 years sounds about right. It would be over 20 for comics in general and anime.

I also read Bande dessinée / US comics and am a librarian.

I turned 29 this summer and I was turned on to manga because in third grade (When I was 9? I think?) some guys in my class had Dragonball mangas and I instantly fell in love. You know that feeling when you discover something that you never even conceived could exist and it hooks on the spot? That was it for me.


I run Illuminati-Manga. You're welcome.

This poll made me realize I've been a member of this site for over 10!! years; I joined probably a year after I started reading manga, so I'd say I've been reading for 11 years.

Thanks for keeping this website up and running for so long; I'm sure its a lot of work, especially with all the bots that are going on right now. I don't really post anymore, but I definitely use the list feature everyday to keep track of when everything I'm reading is updated.

Its also funny because I used to chat with xombiemonkey all the time, but I don't think hes used this site for awhile.

I feel so old! I've been a part of this site for 10 years, and have read for a year before that (not counting when I grew up watching anime as cartoons on TV). I can't believe how long it has been, and MU remains my computer homepage to this day.

Hmm, it took about 10 years to read everything good scanlated. Had to live a life too ^^. These days I pretty much moved on to novels but I still keep an eye out for new stuff that gets recommended. Latest "manga" I checked out was The gamer.

15 years for me. Read my first manga when I was 11.
I remember thinking back when I was 15 that I couldn't possibly still be into manga in my 20s. Well, I'm still here.

Around 7 or 8 years. I had been into anime on and off since childhood, but it wasn't until I was about 20 or 21 that I started reading manga. I guess that's fairly late compared to most people on this site.

13 years!

I started with Hana Yori Dango, and I found it in a public library. I was so confused since it wasn't colored like american comics. And here I am now. lol

I've been reading manga (started with Doraemon) since I was 8 so it has been 15 years. Man, that's more than half of my life already.

Think it is since around 2003. Wasn't a lot of manga or anime available here before I went online for it.

Minimum of 11 years since my account on this site is that young.
