For this challenge, you will go on a "blind date" with the series below.

You'll read as many manga as you can from the books below, choosing based on the three-word descriptions submitted by members of our group. You can read one book from each mystery series, as many books from one series, or any combination of the two.

(view spoiler)
Animals, high school, secrets

(view spoiler)
Dreams, Environment, Myth

(view spoiler)
Thief, Magician, Hedgehog

(view spoiler)
Siblings, Cross-dress, Sign Language

(view spoiler)
drama, aspiration, interesting

(view spoiler)
charming, funny, entertaining

(view spoiler)
adorable, sweet, cheerful

(view spoiler)
supernatural, fantasy, romance

(view spoiler)
friendship, humor, gender-bender

(view spoiler)
tearjerker, friendship, drama

By the way, since the point is for the manga to be secret, for once I'm asking you guys NOT to share what manga you read in this thread. You are welcome to share which you're reading by their mystery terms, though. :)

Reading one of each? I'm tempted to do that too, at least for the ones I can get from my library. Since I know what all the series are, I'm not sure if it's fair for me to participate. ^^;;;

Cindy III (Polywag) | 176 comments Based on what you said I'm not sure my library has all ten either, but I'm thinking of doing all ten. For now I've put my goal at 3.

Cindy III (Polywag) | 176 comments You should do it if you want to.

The other problem is, of the ones I can get from the library, I read most of them. Which defeats the purpose just a bit. ^^;;; I didn't realize that until I really looked at them.

I'll try one of these. I'll let you know if my library has them / which one I ultimately finish.

supernatural, fantasy, romance

friendship, humor, gender-bender

tearjerker, friendship, drama

Edit: Settled on Friendship, humor, gender-bender.

So belatedly, I'm going to try a few of the blind date books that I'm not familiar with at all that I can get from my library. :) Which, admittedly, is just the one... ^^;;; Guess I'll count the one I'm actually reading at the moment as well...

Siblings, Cross-dress, Sign Language

Animals, high school, secrets

So how did everyone like this challenge, by the way? If you guys enjoyed it, I could try setting it up again for another round in the future. :)
