    Welcome to the 2016 Manga Reading Challenge

    [​IMG]

    This is a simple club! I've created the15-point list below of manga in which you have until January 2017 (or a year from which you started) to complete. This reaches out to manga lovers alike. The list asks participants to explore outside of their comfort zones, but it also is very vague. That means that it doesn't just work for 2016, or must be started in January (So please keep this in mind if you ever want to challenge yourself in general). Obviously I'm a bit bias, but it's even a good list to do repeatedly. The vagueness also allows each person to personalize the list to their own needs, from individual bullet points to the overall list!

    Examples of personalizing bullet points:
    "Long running" - Person 1 says 100+ chapters; person 2 says at least 5 volumes
    "Recommended to you" - Person 1 says from a friend; Person 2 says from three strangers that like the same things as me
    Examples of personalizing the overall list to make it harder or easier:
    All bullets must have a pink-haired character
    Only counts as a completed bullet if personally rated above 4 stars
    Complete the list three times over within four months.
    Allow an manga to be used for more than one bullet (e.g. One Piece for "long running" and "fandom")

    If this does gain interest I would love some help in creating badges from "participating" to "completed!" Below are the images and the links to the list. You can add the actual list to your profiles on Anime-Planet (you can see an example of this on mine) or any other site. Since I'm credited already on it you're more than welcome to actually use the check mark boxes, write on it with your manga choices, etc.


    If interested all you need to do is comment below!
    Feel free to also include:
    Edits/personalization to your list
    What manga you are using
    When your estimated completion date is
    Updates to your list
    Anything else you can thing of!

    I hope you all enjoy!!! Thanks for participating!
