Notes

- Challenge list with explanation: https://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1759337&show=0#msg56620394

  • This challenge follows a section-upgrading system.
    -- Everyone must begin the challenge as a Novice.
    -- You can only move to the Apprentice level after you have completed 10 of the Novice items.
    -- To move to the Intermediate level, you must first complete 15 Apprentice items.
    -- And so on...
  • This means you can only read manga for one section at a time.
    -- If the last manga you completed for Novice has a finish date of January 31st (on your form), then all Apprentice level items must have start dates of January 31st or later (on your form). You cannot begin reading manga for Apprentice items on January 30th.
  • There are two exceptions to this rule:
    -- Manga which have more than 20 volumes can be started at any time during the challenge period.
    -- Expert bonus items can be started at any time during the challenge period; however, remember that you must complete the Advanced level before you can turn-in your form as Expert.
