I managed to complete my challenge of 700 chapters in a week. There was a little bit of time to spare, so over 700 chapters is possible. However, at this point as I did not have physical copies of all the chapters my hands hurt quite a bit. Maybe another year I could do another 700 challenge or instead see how many I can read in five days. Out of the chapters I read, I think the series I enjoyed reading most was Kami Nomi Zo Shiru Sekai as there was lots of new story that the anime has yet to cover. A mixture of series was good to keep it interesting. I managed to read from 11 series in the challenge. I may run another challenge next year. If you have any suggestions for changes, please comment.

Today, I read something that was not on the original list – Hellsing.

Hellsing: I read 75 chapters as this brought me to the total I needed. Hellsing is about a group of vampire hunters working for the government in England which also make use of vampires in their ranks. Some unknown enemy has recently been increasing the number of vampires and Hellsing are trying to investigate the cause.

Here is an opening from the anime.

The 75 chapters bring me up to the total of 700! Challenge completed! I could continue, but my fingers hurt a bit too much to go on. Later, I will do a final post to close the challenge.

Today, I read some of Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, Tasogare Otome X Amnesia, Steins;Gate Shijou Saikyou No Slight Fever and Steins;Gate Onshuu No Brownian Motion.

Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei: Again there was a lack of consistent chapters – I managed to find 72 more chapters, up to chapter 289, and a bonus chapter. For now, that is about all I can find so I am leaving it for now. As most plots are stand alone, I should be able to read the missing chapters in the future.

Here is an opening from the anime.

Tasogare Otome X Amnesia: I read through 33 chapters and 8 bonus chapters which brings me up to the most recent release. Tasogare Otome X Amnesia is about a ghost who inhabits the school after they died over fifty years ago. However, the ghost has no memory of how they died and their life.

There seem to be no suitable videos to show for this at the moment. Instead, listen to this scary story. I am not liable for any mental harm this story may cause you. You have been warned. There once was a chicken. Then, one afternoon, it ate a frog. The owner shut it into the coop before he went to bed. As he got into bed, he heard a scratching noise on the window. The noise continued all night. The next day the owner went outside and found the chicken… in the coop! Moving on.

Steins;Gate Shijou Saikyou No Slight Fever: I read the 6 chapters that have been translated. This so far is following Makise Kurisu’s viewpoint through the initial events of Steins;Gate.

Steins;Gate Onshuu No Brownian Motion: I read 4 chapters and a bonus chapter. This series follows Tennouji Yuugo (otherwise known as Mr. Braun) and his arrival at Akihabara.

Here is the original game opening for Steins;Gate.

Today, I read some of Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei.

Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei: I have not been able to find all the chapters, but I have read 90 chapters that I could find, up to chapter 165 and I have also read a bonus chapter. Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei is based around a teacher who despairs at the world and always has a negative view. His class also has many students with extreme personalities. The series makes lots of references to people, events and other series.

Here is an opening from the anime.

Today I completed 91 chapters. That makes 500 chapters in total. There are two days left for 200 chapters. The lack of available chapters today has left me in despair but I will aim to complete a large number of chapters tomorrow.

Today, I read all of Mahou Shoujo Kazumi Magica – The Innocent Malice and Another.

Mahou Shoujo Kazumi Magica – The Innocent Malice: I read all 15 chapters released so far. MSKM – TIM is a spin-off from Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica. It has the same basic mechanics to the story. The magical girls have to fight witches as in the original but there are also more battles between different groups of the girls. Most of the characters are new but Mami and Kyubey do appear.

You can have an ending this time.

Another: I completed 20 chapters, a bonus chapter and 2 chapters from Another 0. The manga and anime were both based on the book so some things vary between them. The story is about a class which is cursed due to the death of a student.

Here is the first opening from the anime.

Today I managed 38 chapters. In total that gives me 409 and I have covered 6 series. I am still on track but I think I will need to work up to the last day.

Today, I read all of Highschool Of The Dead and Black Lagoon.

Highschool Of The Dead: I read 29 chapters and 3 bonus chapters. It was… what I expected based on the anime. Highschool Of The Dead is about a zombie apocalypse and follows a group of highschool students in Japan. The zombies are dangerous, but not as dangerous as the fanservice.

Here is the first opening from the anime.

Black Lagoon: I completed 81 chapters and 6 bonus chapters. The manga and the anime have the same content but the order is different at some points. It is about a group of pirates/smugglers/mercenaries who operate in the seas of south-east Asia, mostly around Thailand but sometimes in other countries. The main city is Roanapur which is ruled over by multiple gangs and mafias.

Here is the first opening from the anime.

Today I managed 119 chapters. The grand total is now 371. As I will not have much time tomorrow, I will aim to get at least 29 chapters completed to stay on track.

Today, I have managed to complete the rest of Kami Nomi Zo Shiru Sekai.

Kami Nomi Zo Shiru Sekai: Today I have read 137 chapters which brings me up to the most recent chapter 190. I also read 12 bonus chapters and 2 behind the scenes of the anime chapters. The plot has changed at a good pace. They managed the ratio of stand alone stories and main arcs well. Also, characters do get reused which I find good. The longest and most eventful arc finished just at chapter 189 so something new will start soon.

Here is the second opening from the anime.

If the video has expired, comment and I will try to replace it.

There were 151 chapters read today and this brings me up to a total of 252 chapters completed. I was in god mode today so I managed to conquer so many chapters, but my aim is over 100 for tomorrow.
