ミンゴ イタリア人がみんなモテると思うなよ isn’t there!

Oh my gosh, sorry! I thought you’d added all of yours so I didn’t realise. I’m afraid I can’t edit the poll now :confused:

I forgot to mention in the original post, but I will be closing the poll by the end of the weekend :slight_smile:

Come on, FukaBoku, there’s still time!

I would vote for FukaBoku, but I’ve already finished 1st volume on my own, so it seems not fair when I would be mostly hoping for an offshot club :stuck_out_tongue:

Haha, that’s fair enough :grin:

That is reason enough :wink:
I have voted for that reason, and gotten my wish, more than once :wink: (Chi’s Sweet Home and Fruits Basket)

Reading with the club is fun, even if you have read it once before =)

You know… It’s a bit silly that if FukaBoku were number 1 and Nichijou number 2, we would read both (because FukaBoku is a short manga), but now that they are the other way around, we would only read Nichijou and then have another vote.

Would it be that crazy just to read Nichijou and FukaBoku in that case? :eyes:

Well, the concern has always been that by the time the longer winner is over, many of the people who voted for the second-place option might no longer be around / will no longer be interested.

At the moment FukaBoku is substantially less popular (percentage-wise) than Nichijou, so it would feel a bit weird to run a club for it based on these results.

This way we get more polls too :stuck_out_tongue:

Ah, that is an important consideration, especially with the attrition being quite high at the best of times!

Wow, that’s… quite the jump from third to second place!

We have a winner!

Our next pick, starting hopefully on 20th February, will be FukaBoku (不可解なぼくのすべてを).

As this pick will probably span ‘just’ seven weeks, we will also be reading the second place option directly afterwards without holding another vote: 日常.

Check out the links in the OP to purchase if you’re interested in joining either of them!

I will create a home thread shortly.

Thank you to everybody who voted :blush:

Yaaaay finally, I’ve been waiting to read FukaBoku for a while now, so glad it got picked :partying_face: :partying_face: Also looking forward to Nichijou since I watched the anime a while ago and really enjoyed it (even though I didn’t vote for it because I really wanted FukaBoku to win lol)
