reading 900+ chapter of ippo is entirely possible for just 1 day , but reading 300+ of berserk for 6 hours isn't

Ippo as sports manga has plenty of chapters that you can fill the dialogue on 2-3 pages + its normally 18-19 pages most of the time it has atleast 2 spreads that pretty much always lack any text in them , especially in fights the amount of text decreases even more.

Berserk is entirely different story , as monthly(former bi-weekly) series its always filled with 25-30 pages or more , that have much more content and story to tell rather than what a boxing manga can do.

But even if the content was the same and it isnt lets do the math.

6 hours = 360 minutes / 300 chapters(its easier to calculate this way) = 1.2 of a minute per chapter = 72 seconds per chapter

if you consider that each chapter has 30 pages and switching from page to page takes you 1s , that leaves you with 42 seconds per chapter to assimilate what was told , thought , narrated and stuff

That isn't a possible for any human to do , unless he skipped over bit time for berserk , but for ippo its entirely possible.

we dont know when he started reading[he never said that he read 300chapters in 6hours]
and his/her post was most likely a "lie"

reading 900 chapters in one matter how you look at it is outragous[and most likely a lie]

hajime no ippo have a fair amount of text
and a rather big part of the manga is not actually about sports but the life around a couple of characters

and im not saying his lie is better than yours[his have obvious flaws]

your lie is 1.6 his lie is 1.2
you are about equally dumb
but since you try to hide...that makes you the winner
or does it...i dont know

That's the thing , i didn't lie. Its perfectly possible to read 900 chapter of ippo for less than 24 hours , especially when somemanga was working.

Depends on the day. I mean, I can cover a couple volumes easily if I'm not inclined to pay attention to every single detail. However, there are days where I want to appreciate every sentence, eye movement, and motion so it may take hours.

For me, it really depends on the plot and how exciting it is. I can't tell on how fast do I read but I know If based "in one day" depending on the pages and the scenario... lets say...
If the manga is boring... around 2-3 chapter (like if its on 50+pages) 5 chapters (25less pages)
If the manga is exciting... around 6-8 chapter (like if its on 50+pages) 12 chapters (25less pages)
imo, i'm in the average (>_<)> idk if its odd that i posted it like this or not (・_・; ) teehee...
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
If you like you can do the MATH (;一_一) ... i think maybe in a week is around 30 or 85 chapters xD
