      SIGN UP & POLL - Manga book club - 2016 edition! - SIGN UP & POLL




      ~ SIGN UPS ~

      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 making new friends.

      HOW IT WORKS
      Each month we will read a selected manga that is to be decided by a poll. As we progress through at our own pace we can discuss aspects such as the plot, character development and artwork. Spoiler tags will need to be placed to ensure that we don't ruin the manga for others who may not read as quickly. Additionally, because this is a reemerging club, we plan to begin with shorter series manga and advance accordingly.

      RULES
      Be friendly to one another
      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 qualify for pocky points (see below).


      POTENTIAL MANGA OPTIONS
      These are the selected manga were going to be looking at for our first read (check out the spoiler). Hope your all excited! Below are the titles we've chosen, along with a short description and links available, all of which are "free to read" manga so that everyone can take part and enjoy.

      (Please report any dead links to myself or a member of the A&M Moderation Team)

        Spoiler:  
      FLCL aka: フリクリ; FLCL; Fooly Cooly; Fuli Culi
      Genres: Comedy, Mecha, School Life, Seinen Chapters: 15
      Summary: Naota's life isn't simple: he lives with his eccentric father and grandfather in a two-story house above a family-owned bakery in a town marked by a gigantic factory at its heart. The factory looks suspiciously like a hand iron, complete with a steam release at the top--not the most typical landmark. Life is already strange enough, but to top it off, his older brother's ex-girlfriend starts making extremely suggestive passes at him... and an impish, playful alien smacks him in the head with a bass guitar and then infuses herself into his family.
      LINK 1 - LINK 2


      3am Dangerous zone
      Genera: Comedy, Romance, Josei Chapters: 15
      Summary: Momoko, who dreams of becoming an illustrator, finds employment in an ultra fast-paced office that specializes in designing pachinko parlors!! With the office running a yazuka-like business and employing a designer, who has a habit of suddenly stripping in the middle of the night, Momoko believes that the company employees are a bit... no, definitely eccentric!! She continues pulling all-nighters, unable even to return home... And in the midst of cigarette-filled fumes, where women's authority takes a step back, she asks herself, "What am I doing here?"
      LINK 1 - LINK 2


      Kieli
      Genera: Adventure, Fantasy, Shoujo, Supernatural Chapters: 7
      Summary: Kieli sees ghosts. It’s an odd ability for a 14-year-old girl, and it makes her a bit of an outcast at her boarding school. Her only friend, in fact, is the (semi-) departed spirit of a girl who used to inhabit her room. That is until the two encounter a young man who appears to share Kieli’s “gift.” It doesn’t take long to discover, though, Harvey is an altogether different sort of creature — one of the infamous Undying, the reanimated corpse of a dead soldier. Could it be that in this cursed fellow Kieli has finally found a kindred spirit? Throwing in her lot with this strange, soulless man and his possessed radio, she means to find out…
      LINK 1 - LINK 2


      End of Eternity: The Secret Hours
      Genera: Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi Chapters: 12
      Summary: In a world called Barzel exists a particular profession called Private Military Firms or more commonly known as PMFs. They take on any particular job ranging from stealing to security as long as the price is right. Lynbell, Zephyr and Vashyron joined alliances to take on jobs and have been doing decently even in this highly competitive and cut throat industry. However, lately, there has been a mysterious figure who has always been one step ahead of them, taking their jobs and keeping them from making money. And now, it seems that person is their new client.
      LINK 1 - LINK 2


      Solanin
      Genre: Slice of Life, Drama, Seinen Chapters: 28
      Summary:After graduating from college, Meiko went straight to work as an office lady, but she can't help feeling there should be something more to life. Determined to find a worthier goal, she quits work, but can she actually make her neubulous dreams come true- and how will her sudden decision affect her relationship with her boyfriend Taneda?

      "Every position must be held to the last man: there must be no retirement. With our backs to the wall and believing in the justice of our cause, each one of us must fight on to the end."

      Earl Douglas Haig, Order to the British Army, 12 April 1918

      So death, the most terrifying of ills, is nothing to us, since so long as we exist, death is not with us; but when death comes, then we do not exist. It does not then concern either the living or the dead, since the former it is not, and the latter are no more.
