      Hey everyone, well we've reached that exciting time where we are going to be deciding the 'First' title for A&M's Manga Book Club.
      So, above is the poll that you will need to make your choice, it is important that you both take a look at the selection that we have provided and read the description before making an informed choice.

      Due to the poll being limited to just 10 options, we have doubled up in order to fit the 20 titles in. This may confuse you a little but if you select your preferred title (which will include another) and then please specify which title you'd prefer which then will be tallied at the end. If you do not understand, then don't worry; feel free to send me a PM and I'll gladly explain.

      Thank you to those who've already signed up, below is the list of suggested titles; any members can also take this opportunity to now also sign-up if you haven't already as once the poll is complete all participants will be listed and the fun will begin.

      Re: Manga Book Club: First Title of Choice

      A lot of the books sounded vaguely interesting, so I'm not too bothered about the result. That said, the snippet about Akira appealed at the time of writing this post.
      It doesn't matter how undignified the means, if you get the results, and don't compromise on your morals.

      Re: Manga Book Club: First Title of Choice

      I've voted for Akira/Assassination Classroom; I can honestly say both of those are worth the time invested.

      Though out of the two, I'd prefer Assassination Classroom.
