For this challenge, you will be finding things in the manga you read! There are 15 items total, so that's 15 volumes of manga to read, one per list item.

Find manga with:
Vending machine
movie theater
cat
glasses
potted plant
magical girl
love at first sight
inner monologue
yokai
Christmas
childhood friend
book
good luck charm
cell phone
sword

Those who complete the challenge by finding all 15 items on the list will have a chance to pick a Shoujo manga for the May-June 2018 group read! No votes, just your pick. I'll be choosing a person at random, probably from a hat.

Make sure to enter the challenge!

I can't believe the magical girl is the last thing on my list for me to find. O.o

How is everyone else's challenge going? Anyone getting close?


message 9: by Cindy III (last edited Feb 20, 2018 11:19PM) (new)

Cindy III | 192 comments Not close at all. How did you like Erased?

I will have to cram this last week of February.

Terrence (grnkrby) | 82 comments I'm doing terrible. A lot of these elements were in anime I watched, but not in the manga I've been reading, ha ha.

I liked the first volume. It's interesting, if a little slow to start.

Were there other things in manga you've read recently that might fit into a future scavenger?

I'm kind of surprised you haven't read any manga with someone wearing glasses. I thought all manga had a megane trope character. :)

Terrence (grnkrby) | 82 comments Well, Kobayashi has glasses. So I did see that one.

I read three Species Domain (2-4) volumes, and phones are integral to that. No vending machines though iirc. xC

And I read Chi's Sweet Home which had a cat. That's everything.

Hmm, sure, a few ones that were intetesting:

Elf Ears
Sofa
Wings
School Uniform (hard to avoid)
Beach
Beard

Surprisingly, most of the books I'm reading involve fantasy creatures meeting up in highschool or beyond, so no Childhood Friends.

Edit: Species Domain does have some characters in the main group who are childhood friends. Now I gotta figure out which volume points that out, ha ha.

Existence is enough to count. :)

Terrence (grnkrby) | 82 comments I just got a good luck charm... But it was in a light novel, Clockwork Planet 3.

I had trouble finding a good luck charm as well. :)

I'm kind of surprised that the things I thought would be easy to find are some of the harder ones lol

Selena (sailorstar165) | 2025 comments Mod
Just finished. :) I believe this is what they refer to as "by the skin of your teeth."

Since no one completed this challenge, no bonus read in May and June. :) I'm not counting myself, since it seems a bit unfair if the creator of the challenge wins. ^_^;;;
