Please look under “Current Proposals” in the first post for more details on each of the options, including links to sample pages which will help you gauge the difficulty.

Difficulty Scores

Each option has been assigned a difficulty score, noted in the poll, based on club members voting, where 1 indicates “no effort at all” and 5 indicates “so much effort my brain might explode”. These scores aren’t perfect or objective, so please look at the sample pages of options you’re interested in, if you have time.

We will likely begin reading on the 25th of April, one week after we finish reading 霧のむこうのふしぎな町. If a short manga (expected less than 8 weeks) wins we will also read the second place option afterwards without holding another vote.

The poll will be closing this evening (UK time).

You can vote for up to 4 options. Nominations are for manga except where otherwise noted.
