I thought it was weird too. Seemingly I can change everything about the content, but not the title? Maybe I’ll try again…

I’ve added the new nominations we’ve had to the OP and will open the voting in a few hours :blush: last chance to read the samples and vote on difficulty!

@NicoleRauch - just wanted to check that the English title I gave yours makes sense?!

Turns out that Ao is the name of the girl that‘s depicted on the cover, so I would probably go with „Ao‘s Island and a Cat“ or „…and One Cat“ - whatever you prefer :slight_smile:

Right, from looking at the cover I kind of suspected that might be the case :grin:

Vote for the next book now!

Please look under “Current Proposals” in the first post for more details on each of the options - the nominations contain short summaries and sample pages.

Each option has been assigned a difficulty score based on club members voting, where 1 indicates “no effort at all” and 5 indicates “impossible even with help”. This is noted in the poll below. These scores aren’t perfect comparisons - different people might vote on each one! - so if you have time take a look at the sample pages for options you’re interested in.

We will likely begin reading on 10th August, one week after we finish reading 銭天堂. If a short manga wins first place we will also read the second place option straight afterwards.

The poll will be closed this Sunday or sooner if voting has dried up. Please vote for a maximum of 4 options!

  • Nordic Girl Åsa [Manga] [2.47]
  • One Week Friends [Manga] [2.35]
  • Ao’s Island and a Cat [Manga] [2.62]
  • Neighbourhood Story [Manga] [2.70]
  • Laid-Back Camp [Manga] [2.76]
  • Haikyuu!! [Manga] [2.63]
  • Naruto [Manga] [2.79]
  • Dragonball [Manga] [2.94]
  • Attack on Titan [Manga] [2.79]
  • Great Detective Conan [Manga] [3.33]
  • Scary Lessons [Book] [3.29]
  • Porepore Nikki! [Book] [3.00]

Are we still going for the top two if a manga wins?

Voted! Thanks Radish!

Doesn’t it depend more on the number of weeks than the medium? For example, if Aria the Masterpiece won now we wouldn’t take the second choice since it’s longer.

I think if it’s a short manga, yes? Not certain about some of the newer ones, but e.g. Laid-Back Camp only has 5 or 6 chapters.

Heh, yep, like seanblue said.

It’s hard to not vote in a poll… :cry:
But since I’m not going to read any of the choices I don’t want to skew the results.

Yes, but I’m not going to order from Amazon just to read that.

Vote for my books, then. *Slips a thousand-yen bill under the table.*
