Manga Bingo Challenge + Giveaway | #mangareadathon 2018


You might remember that last year we made a bingo board for our reading challenges. We had fun with that bingo board, so we decided to keep it by combining it with another one of our challenges that we hosted last year, our Manga Treasure Hunt! This year we’re calling the challenge “manga bingo” AKA “mango” but the idea is the same.

To Enter This Giveaway:

  • Find pictures of the items listed in the mango board below in the manga you’re reading.
  • Take photographs of the items you find and share them on your social media (anywhere online as long as it is publicly visible). *Please DO NOT share pictures you’ve found in non-licensed publications or scanlations.
  • Share at least one item to enter this giveaway one time. Click HERE, to fill in the form.
  • Remember that when you share the pictures you MUST include the following information for any of the pictures you share to be eligible: name the item you’ve located (from the mango board), include the hashtag #mangabingo, the title of the book, and the author.

Ex. it may end up looking something like, this:


  • Try for a Mango Blackout! If you find all of the items in the board below, Click HERE to fill in the form AGAIN and your name will be entered in this giveaway 3 times. You need to submit this form twice for your blackout to be counted.

Some definitions:
