    Love to read manga? Then you'll definitely need to sign up too...



    The aim of the club is to get members reading again, it will be a fun way of also discussing a similar subject, broadening on your preferred genres and also making new friends.

    How it works

    Each month we will read a selected manga that will be decided by a poll (or voting system), as we progress through at our own pace we can discuss all aspects such as the plot, character development and artwork. Spoiler tags will be placed to ensure that we don't ruin the novel for others who may not read as quick (me included).

    As this is a fledgling Club, we have decided to begin with shorter series manga and we will progress as we feel needed.
    If you would like to participate, then please register your interest by replying to this thread.

    When replying, you will need to provide:
    1. Confirmation of your interest in participation.

    Rules

    No hentai/yaoi/yuri series

    All board-wide rules apply
    If you do not post at least 4 times in the discussion thread, you will not be eligible for pocky points (see below).
