Organised by Shaegeeksout, the Readathon is taking place this weekend - from the 12th to the 14th of February. Although I'm using this as an opportunity to get through as much as my manga backlog as possible, Shae has also given us some challenges, should we care to accept them! These challenges make up the foundations of my own readathon choices for this weekend, so let's take a look at them!
It's time to reveal the winners! Here are the results of the 2nd AGAHA Awards, the winners chosen by you guys! I always find it interesting to see what the favourite series from my readership were - it allows me to learn a lot more about you guys! I hope you guys find these results as interesting as I did.
A lot of you probably haven't heard of Leeds before. In actual fact, it's the largest legal and financial centre outside of London and the birthplace of Spice Girls' member Mel B, former professional boxer Nicola Adams and renowned chef, Marco Pierre White. Let's forget about the trivia though, because Leeds is a brilliant place to go if you want to expand your anime and manga collections.
The nomination period for the first ever AGAHA Awards has now closed and now it's time to get voting! Who will win? Only you can decide! Voting closes on January 1st 2020.
Although I'm not particuarly one to keep up to date with award ceremonies such as the Oscars, I've always wondered what it'd be like to host my own little award show. I don't know why I've got the need to do this, but we're doing it. It's time for a little bit of fun!
Kizu, written by Otsuichi and drawn by Hiro Kiyohara, follows the life of Keigo. Like most other children, Keigo attends school, but his school is different. All of the troubled kids - the troublemakers, the abused, the scarred - are grouped in one class. This manga is a really short story. It's only 4 chapters long! But, despite that, it's a really impactful story.
Boy, I love a death game scenario, so I was quite hyped to get reading this and I am so glad I did. The synopsis sounds a little crazy, sure, I get that, but the first chapter is written so well making me hooked from the start. And as the story progressed, I was obsessed with finding out what the next game was or what the next twist in the story was.
Whilst at university, reading has become a chore. It's rare I read for pleasure now, for I find it quite time-consuming to get involved a whole new world and immerse myself so much that I enjoy it. That being said, I have recently begun reading manga again.

One day, his female classmate named Rio Suzumura approaches him and he immediately becomes intrigued in her. It was drawn, as well as written, by Kaori Ozaki whose other works have include Knife and Immortal Rain.
