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!

I'm glad some people looked at the explanation! Now you should look up hard vs. soft science fiction. Or maybe high vs. low fantasy.

New Poll - Hard vs. Soft Magic Systems
This week's poll was suggested by Sosseres, and it requires some explanation. The distinction between hard vs. soft magic systems was popularized by one of my favorite authors, Brandon Sanderson.

Soft: The rules and limitations of the magic isn't really explained. It's all just fantasy to the reader. Stuff happens, and it's powerful. Some examples are The Lord of the Rings and the kind of magic you see in Disney movies.

Hard: There is an explanation for how magic works with clear costs and limitations. To the reader, it's more technical than fantastical. For example, you have Fullmetal Alchemist and Mx0.

It's really a spectrum though, so series typically fall somewhere in between. Naruto started hard but got softer as the series progressed. In my opinion, many long-running series fall into this trap of continually introducing new antagonists that are somehow stronger than anyone before with very little explanation. If you want a more detailed explanation, go read the .

I used to have a poster hanging on my wall, but I moved, and now my walls are bare

New Poll - Fan Art
Last poll suggestion from this set of F_J's. Have you ever bought fan art? Maybe a cute poster of your favorite series from one of the artists at Anime Expo? Or perhaps you even commissioned a piece? Or perhaps you only own the officially things?

New Poll - Late Extras
F_J gave a lot of poll suggestions in one shot that I liked, hence this is another one by F_J. The circumstances here are that a series has already been over for a year or more. You liked the series, but it's been out of your mind for a while now. Suddenly a special chapter is released that takes place after the ending of the series. Maybe it's just a trip to an onsen. Or maybe it's an actual epilogue! Or perhaps a time skip to 10 years into the future? Would you enjoy that?

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.
