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!

Digital "Publishers"
We will begin removing digital retailers (such as INKR and Mangamo) as the "English Publisher" for series that have an actual publisher (like Kodansha USA). Just because you can buy/view a series on a digital platform does not mean they are the publisher. Otherwise you may as well list Amazon or ComiXology as the publisher for a bunch of series.

And a small reminder that we are an English site. For example, do not list French or Spanish publishers in the "English Publisher" field. And scanlation groups that do not release chapters in English will be rejected.

New Poll - Mass Releases
This week's poll was suggested by Aleph0. You know how some scanlation groups like to save up a bunch of releases for anniversaries or Christmas (or some other random day)? Do you like those mass release days? Or would you rather they release when they're done working on the chapter?

Previous Poll Results:
Question: The author of your favorite ongoing series only has a few more months to live. How do you want them to handle the series?
Choices:
Stick to the original release schedule even though it will probably be unfinished - votes: 446 (12.8%)
Have them try and rush an ending - votes: 482 (13.8%)
Have the author stop right there and enjoy the rest of their life - votes: 2557 (73.4%)
There were 3485 total votes.
The poll ended: April 3rd 2021

I personally don't think George R. R. Martin will finish A Song of Ice and Fire before kicking the bucket. At least Brandon Sanderson has a good chance of finishing The Stormlight Archive. Such a prolific author

April Fools' Day Warning
In a few days is the infamous April Fools' Day (April 1st). At MU, we WILL NOT tolerate any fake/joke releases being reported/announced to us (on any day, not just April Fools). If we, by accident, allow a fake release to get through, please report the mistake to us (either via a Change Request form, through the forum, post a comment in this news post, send me a private message, or you can email me at lambchopsil[at]mangaupdates[dot]com if you are not a registered member here).

As you have been warned against doing it, if we discover a person still attempting to post a joke release here, that person will be dealt with. Severe action will be taken upon that scanlation group.

Thank you for considering our request to remain as accurate as possible for our members.

New Poll - Author Dying
This week's poll was suggested by jacob66. It's a bit morbid, but if the author of your favorite ongoing series knew they only had a few more months to live, how would you like them to handle that series? There is no poll option to have someone else finish the series since I feel like that rarely happens (although my best example of this is the novel series The Wheel of Time).
