Welcome to Baka-Updates - Manga Division

Manga is basically the Japanese equivalent of what you might know as comic books. They have a very unique style which has developed over many years. We hope here you can learn to appreciate the art that is manga and become an avid manga fan!

New Poll - Hobbies
F_J, again, suggested this poll. Has manga ever inspired you to take up new hobbies? Maybe Hikaru no Go taught you Go? Or Saki mahjong? Or Haikyu!! volleyball? Or Nodame Cantabile classical music and/or conducting? Comment below with your story!

I was at a party and someone had to do a punishment over a bet. She had to dance to one of the Naruto songs.

New Poll - Anime Songs
This week's poll is again from F_J. Do you listen to songs from anime? It could be the instrumental stuff, or the regular OP/ED that you're probably thinking of. Or maybe it's the songs from Kimi no Na wa.? That one's hugely popular with my friends. Personally, every once in a while I'll listen to the symphonic suites for Gundam Seed and Gundam Seed Destiny that were done by the London Symphony Orchestra.

New Poll - Bad Ending Effects
This week's poll was suggested by F_J. Does a bad ending affect how you rate a series? Did the last season of Game of Thrones taint your perception of it?

New Poll - Name Translation Differences
This week's poll was suggested by Nekomikoto. This one hits close to home actually, as many years ago I helped scanlate Mahou Sensei Negima! with AquaStar Fansubs. There's a character that we called "Colonel Sanders," although the official translation came out to be "Ku:nel Sanders."
