Manga Madness Readathon is returning for its sixth Round, which will run from May 4th-12th and you’ll be able to use #MangaMadnessReadathon to share your progress, TBR, and Updates, if you decide to join. I can’t believe that it’s already April and the the Sixth round is in less than a Month. I really do have a blast hosting this readathon, and cannot wait for the next round. Just like with the other rounds, there are 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, all the have to do is complete at least one Bingo, but if you would like to try for a Blackout and complete the entire board, Good Luck. I always set to get a Blackout. So that’ll probably be my goal again this year.
And just like the other rounds their will be 3 different options. This will also be the Official Sign-Up this round, which you’ll find at the bottom of this post. So, here are the Challenges:
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 previous rounds, and will not be changing for a really long time): 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. Jun Mochizuki is by far my Favourite Mangaka, and has been for a really long time now:
If you would like an Alternative, another favourite of mine is Akaza Samamiya, and you can read any of these:
I think that Bloody Mary is the only one that’s been officially translated into English! I would definitely recommend it, It’s only has 10 Volumes and It’s finished publishing, if you prefer to start series that are already completed.
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 those challenges. As long as you’re reading Manga and you’re having fun, it counts. The main goal is to just have fun. Anyway, 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 Part 1 and Part 2, and I’ll have a third part out soon too!
These three Different Options you’ll be able to choose from if you don’t want to do the bingo board are:
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!
On the sign up post you will also have the option to mix up any of these options or even do a mix of all the options.
