Manga, Updates

Manga Challenge 2017

Okay, so I’m starting almost five months into 2017, but I want something to help me try a whole bunch of new manga. What with my new library membership, and access to Crunchyroll’s manga, I’ve got no excuse for not reading lots of manga and finding out more about what I enjoy. After all, I only have three manga series that I can say I enjoy reading and I don’t know enough about what I’m liking about each of them to be able to say I’d like something else.

I went onto MAL’s manga challenge and created myself a bingo card. I won’t be competing on MAL as I prefer the interface of AP but I can still track everything here!
