And I have been planning on doing an Eden:It's An Endless World! reread for a while too. Like I said though, I can't hold back once I start reading. Maybe I'll still be able to discuss anyway.
    Then, do I add your vote to eden? It's not clear in your post.

    In regards to all of us keeping the same pace, well, that's impossible to grant for sure. Frostymouse told me about a similar experience with that idea, and about how it didn't work. So I guess, the rule being about the comments and not about the reading pace, is the best we could have there.

    I think the pace of the reading will be part of the discussion. It would be sad to force us with a fixed schedule if everyone wants to read the manga more rapidly. I guess one will have a better idea on how things go after we start a serie.

    Ummm....If you want. I mean, I can't guarantee that I will even be available for discussion. I was really just saying that I like the idea of this thread. Sorry.

    If I could read just a certain amount of chapters per week, stop, then go discuss those chapters at the "book club", I certainly would. I just can't restrain myself(Once I get going with Eden, I'll probably breeze through the 18 volumes in like 3 days lol). It would be more fun if I could though. That's why I like the idea of this thread, I just don't fit into it well

    Well, actualy it's your choice man. But we hope that a vote means a commitment to be reading together. So, as you can't guarantee it, I won't add you. Anyway, you are welcome to come and join the disucssion in the week we are discussing the chapters you would like to discuss.

    Setting up the voting system

    In regards to the voting system I have a doubt about how to articulate the system we are using, the posting system, and the spreadsheet. The spreadsheet provides us with more useful information to make a decision. We can ask the voters that have already post their votes, to use it. But some of them could be reluctant to do it. So, what if we just use both systems in a consistent way, adopting these rules:
    • We will receiving votes by any of both systems, namely, a member can post his/her preferences, or can simply add his column (and not post anything). Both things will be valid ways of vote.
    • Votes C (Can read), I (Interested) and II (Very interested), of the spreadsheet will be counted for a vote in the posting system.
    • The first criteria to decide will be the number of votes. If with this criteria there is a draw, we will be using as a second criteria the ratings reached in the spreadsheet, which can be different for comics with the same amount of votes.
    What you think?

    I have no problem with your way of counting.
    I have added a sheet to count only the vote but i let people enter there own data.
    If your name is not in the list, add it after the last column and not in the middle please.

    Ok. thanks again for the help. Now the spreadsheet cover all, good.
    About the column added in the middle, it was me. I deleted Jammin colum, since he said he sadly has not the time for participate, and I add in his column the one of Shabrak. But well, we can keep the Jammin column in case he changed his desision.

    Welcome! No, it's not lateat all. You can make proposals until next March 13th, and you can vote until next March 21th. Take a look to the first post; there you will find all the information required.

    I usually reread mangas that had a great impact on me, something that i would like to feel or think again. Sanctuary was a great story but i feel bored sometimes and only Tokai -pair with Hojo- make the reading enjoyable. There was nothing that in the main politics, economics or strategies that i remember to be jaw-dropped about, and was a bit of slow in the narrative but not blame for it, after all was a hard though and defined was neccessary.

    Actually most of the stories i read boring me in some point of them.

    Well I've filed the spreadsheet with the ratings, found that I've read quite a lot of mangas on that list, although I'm quite interested by Beck, Planetes, Touch and Holyland
