Our first challenge is to read 15 shounen manga. It can be any genre (fantasy, horror, comedy, ect.), so long as it's shounen. The challenge will last between March 12-April 12 and the winner of the challenge will get to choose one of the monthly reads for May. Good luck, everyone!

Don't forget to post what you've read here.

Kristen | 224 comments Does anyone know if you can mark a book as reread? I'm rereading Bakuman and would like to put them in the challenge, but I don't want to mess up my Goodreads dates.

Sadly, no. That would be great if they had it, though. :|

Kristen | 224 comments I read something in the Feedback group about a reread function, but I think that was a wish list thing. It would be really nice though. I have been rereading a lot of stuff lately and it would be nice to be able to have dates for them to document what I'm reading this year.

I have a dumb question.

Nightschool: The Weirn Books, Vol. 1 is an Amerimanga aimed at teens. Can I count it toward this challenge? It's got more than enough action to be a shounen, but because it's American in origin it doesn't really fall under either shounen or shoujo.

Well, I've weaseled Walking Dead into the TBR challenge in SJMBC since they're graphic novels, so I'd say that as long as it's still shounen in nature, that's fine.

15 different volumes. The challenges will always be by volume unless stated otherwise. You could read 15 volumes of the same series if you wanted to.
