Today, I’m announcing the third round of Manga Madness Readathon, which I will be hosting from August 10th – August 18th and you’ll be able to use #MangaMadnessReadathon to share your progress, if you decide to join. Just like with the other rounds, there will be 25 Challenges, although you don’t have to complete all of them, but you can if you want to, and it will take the form of a Bingo Board.
And just like last round their will be 3 different options, because this idea was quite popular last round, I’m sticking to it again this round. This will also be the Official Sign-Up again this round too, which you’ll find at the bottom of this post. So, here are the Challenges:
These Challenges are the same as last round, and again this round there will be the challenge in which you can read a Manga by your favourite Manga Artist OR the hosts Favourite. If you don’t have a Favourite Manga Artist or you’ve read all of there work already, you can read my Favourite Manga Artist (which is still the same as last round): Jun Mochizuki.
So, I’ll now let you know what you can read if you’d like to do this one, you have three options and I loved all of these; I highly recommend reading any of these:
Crimson Shell was Jun Mochizuki’s Debut and is a one-shot manga, so if you want something quick and simple to read, I’d suggest this one as it’s only one Volume. Pandora Hearts was the first one by her that I read, and I absolutely loved it, this one has 24 Volumes, It’s also loosely based on Alice in Wonderland; It was inspired by it. And The Case Study of Vanitas is her most recent ongoing series, that has only 3 volumes so far, this is set in Steampunk Victorian Paris and it’s about Vampires, for anybody interested in that.
This BINGO sheet will have a lot of different options for what your book should include – and after reading said book during the readathon, you will be able to cross that square off of your BINGO sheet. Also, If you don’t want to do the Bingo Challenges, you don’t have to. You can still participate even if you decide that you don’t want to do the challenges. As long as you’re reading Manga and you’re having fun, it counts; the whole point of this readathon is to just have fun, and read Manga. If you’re not sure what to read for some of the challenges, you can check out Manga Madness Readathon Recommendations and Manga Series I’ve Read from Start to Finish
Obviously the point of the read-a-thon is to challenge yourself and read as much as you can, and there is no pressure to read a certain amount of books during it. Again, this round will also have three Different Options for those who aren’t fond of Bingo Board Challenges.
Option 1: Bingo Board Challenges
Option 2: Read anything you want
Option 3: Stick to one Series. For those of you who want to continue or Finish a series and not switch between different series!
There will also be Instagram Photo Challenges this round. This was a last minute decision, but I wanted to expand this readathon to Instagram as well as twitter, and have Photo Challenges. So, each day there’ll be a different Photo Challenge. Anyway, here are the photo challenges:
- This readAThon will take place every couple months. I will post a tweet one month in advance to the readAThon on the official twitter account @MMReadathon
- If you are participating – tag #MangaMadnessReadathon and @MMReadathonin your Tweet about your post!
- ReadAThon will last one week – you can come and go as you please.
- Follow this blog and this Twitter for any official updates on the readAThon.
The Rules are simple:
- Just read as much Manga as you can in a week.
- Read 1 volume of manga for each challenge, unless number of volumes is indicated. Or Choose one of the Above Options.
- You can read multiple volumes of manga in a series to have them count for multiple categories, but you can’t use the same volume of manga for multiple categories. It has to be a different Volume for every challenge
The readathon will mostly be taking place on Twitter but you can write a blog post about the readathon and your progress or post on Instagram. Anywhere you want to basically, just don’t forget to fill in the sign-up form so I can keep track of who’s participating and how many of you are participating! You can find the sign-up form here.
I think after this round of #MangaMadnessReadathon, I will have completed enough Manga Series to do a part II of ‘Manga Series I’ve Read from Start to Finish’. I’ll probably have another one of those up after this round; a more updated version. Will you be taking part? What do you think of this Readathon? Any suggestions or improvements you can think of? Feel free to let me know in the Comments, or on Twitter.
Thank you so much for reading and I hope to see around on social media using the #MangaMadnessReadathon so I can see all your posts and progress throughout the readathon!
