Post your list of books for October's challenge here. The challenge is to read as many manga volumes that are fantasy or paranormal. They can be shoujo, shounen, shoujo-ai, shounen-ai, yuri, yaoi, whatever you want. Just make sure it's fantasy or paranormal.

I'm trying to do 20, so I can participate. ^^

Anyway, would A Girl Who Runs Through Time Vol. 1 count? There's time travel in it, but I'm not sure if you guys would count it as "fantasy" or "paranormal"...

Let me know. If it doesn't count, I'll remove it from the shelf.


message 5: by [deleted user] (new)

Considering time travel isn't "real" persay, I would count it. I'm counting Land of Silver Rain Volume 1 by Mira Lee series, even though it takes place mostly in the human world. The only ounce of fantasy in it is Sirius and Thornpricker, who come from the Dokebi Land and can do magic.

Have you read Pandora Hearts or D.Gray-Man? Those two are my personal favorites.


message 13: by [deleted user] (new)

I absolutely recommend Tsubasa. That's one of my favorite series.

You know, I went from falling behind, to being ahead by 3 books. Of course, I also decreased my goal to 20 instead of 25, because I wasn't sure if I was going to make it. Might put it back at 25 at some point. I haven't decided yet.

Yay! I finished! :D I can't believe I managed to do it!


message 18: by [deleted user] (new)

Yay! I wasn't sure I'd make it either, which is why I decreased my goal.
