I have a question about the recently reviewed manga challenge - is the intention that we read a manga shortly after it's been reviewed? Basically, a while back I scrolled through the page and one of the (then) recently reviewed series caught my interest - Heads - but in the end I didn't end up reading it. It has now been two months, and my basic question is, should I choose a different manga for this category when I start reading, or would sticking with Heads (for that specific category) be alright?

@Tsuyokunaru can clarify the answer when she is around, but if you haven't started it yet, you should probably choose something new(within the last 2-3 pages). Just date it when you start.

I am sorry if this question has already been asked, but I tried searching for each page of this thread and got tired of it. I just want to confirm if we can use one-shots for any of the other categories outside of the ones that require one-shot manga. I only ask because when I check the manga database page for a one-shot, the "type" sections includes "one-shot" instead of "manga". But of course most one-shots are manga, so again this is just a confirmation. I don't want to include the one-shots I've read to fulfill some of the challenge entries and then to find out that I shouldn't have included them ;) Thanks!

@RulenneClarissa You should try to choose something that's newer since the challenge requires that is recently reviewed. You should also include a link to the review or a screenshot with the date in the challenge list where you keep track.

@Kino_no_Tabi Yes, you may use one shots in any category besides one shot.

» Read a Harem, Ecchi, Shoujo Ai or Shounen Ai manga

Is a yaoi and yuri genre manga fine or does it has to be one of those three?

I believe the stuff tagged yaoi/yuri is H stuff. And as stuff in the hentai tag can't be substituted for ecchi, I'm gonna say you can't substitute the other 2 either.

Yeah of course. Just edit the difficulty and complete just the number of categories required for easy. My advice would be to leave all the categories open as if you were doing hard, then once you fill 20, just delete all the excess. And who knows, there is still 5 months left so you could still take a shot at medium if you read shorter series.

Good Luck!

Since you seem to like shoujo and josei, I'll try mentioning some of my favorites:
Honey and Clover
Strobe Edge
Shiawase Kissa Sanchoume
Ouran High School Host Club
Ng Life, from the same author of Yona

I was using the "manga search" system to help you with that, but I didn't found anything significant to recommend, sadly.
Hmm.. well I can still think of two things :
- I saw "I am a hero" in your "plan to read", so maybe you could try reading the spin-off I am a Hero in Osaka ? It could give you a sort of preview of the original manga and the overal "mood" of it (the characters are not the same, so no risk of spoiling).
- I know it's a one-shot (and very short), but still, there is Bakemono Recchan (I saw it's in your plan to read aswell). Asano always deliver after all.

Good luck with your manga searching.

Dhaldot no Akujiki Musume is a uh,,,"two-shot"

But other than what the guy above named and Dhaldot, all I can suggest is going to mangaupdates.com, picking a genre you like, sorting by year, going to wherever 2015 starts and just checking every title to see if it's completed and sounds interesting and is translated. It's an ardous task, but sometimes that's the price we pay for working against so many factors to find something(time, availability, translation, ect)

When I came to the forum searching for this thread, I looked back and forth, scrolling the page, only to see that it wasn't there, but on the second page.. I don't understand why this thread isn't in the sticky section.
It kind of made me sad to be honest, because I think here is quite a wonderful place to exchange about manga and our reading progress and all. It shouldn't be only to ask for recommendation but also to have a little reading community enjoying the challenge together, or something. I really value this place for that.
(Maybe it's because nobody read manga in summer vacation ? ^^ who know..)


So, I come back from finishing reading Subaru, and it was an extremely enjoyable read. Really.
I thought about doing a review of it, but I know it would be very exausting to do considering the amount of stuff that could be said about it.
So, in short (not so short, but well..)


Anyway, I hope we'll see more comment in the thread during this summer, because it kind of is the only real place to have civilized conversation about manga, here in the forum of MyAnimeList. huhu

I'm finally back. Sorry for the wait to everyone who's had their completed challenge for review. I had a computer problem and couldn't be back until now. Lots of thanks to @AudioTsunami for doing such a wonderful job helping out with the discussion questions.

@Dullboy This year it was decided to be left without sticky because the sticky posts are usually rules and the challenges don't fall into that category. Since the challenge posts are more popular this year, they're usually on the first page anyway and you can go to the discussion thread by the link on the challenge thread if you can't find it anywhere else. The manga discussion thread is way more quiet than the anime counterpart.

Subaru sounds interesting! I had never heard about it or seen it before. I'll try to check it out.

Slightly odd question: Can i add a category like epic poem or something similar for the Read a manga adapted from a video game, original anime or light novel challenge? While browsing for some new manga I found Dante Shinkyoku, which is, as you might have guess, a manga adaptation of Dante Alighieri's classic work The Divine Comedy. I'm asking this only because we can use novels for the anime challenge and it's not that often that you have such a highly regarded work as the source material.

So, I think I'll read Watashitachi no Shiawase na Jikan for this challenge (looks like every manga-reader on this site has already read it except me..), and Kamisama ga Uso wo Tsuku for another challenge I still have to complete.
Thanks~

Hello, if I started a manga a couple of Days before the challenge I could still use it to fill the item??

These mangas are:
Lost Canvas Gaiden about Ch,50
Love Hina about vol 2
Stealth Symphony about Ch5

In the LightNovel department it has to be a full series of Light Novels or with one Volume is alright?

If I recall correctly, if you started a manga before you posted the challenge, it may be used to fill the item, but only if it was in 2016. If you started them in 2015, they can't be used.

In the LN department, one volume is enough.

So I can include all the mangas I have read in 2016? That will make this a lot easier.

Hey I have a question about the bonus challenge stuff.
It might sound stupid but one of them was to catch up to a long running manga with 300+ chapters. I read bleach, is it still count? because the manga finished.

So for "Start and catch up to an on-going long-running (300+) series" I was planing on reading Magi. But it might end before I end up "catching up" with it. Would it still count for this challenge?

@TakeruChan @Brand Well, it was supposed to be on-going until the time you finished the challenge, not necessarily until the end of the year. I'll only count it if it's still being scanlated. It's just a bonus challenge, but I know there are completionists out there. Let me think about it for a little longer to see if there's a way to get around it. I guess using dates would help, but I'm not sure... Let me think about it for a couple of days. Sorry.

@momokusheila they're pushing the chapter count, but what about Sakamichi no Apollon or Prunus Girl?
