Bump limits and reply limits on threads have been changed across the site. Instead of the massive 500/750 it used to be, it's now 150/225 for the Anime & 2D Media board and 250/300 for the Japan/Otaku Hobbies board. We're hopeful that this will encourage the creation of new threads instead of having everything sit in months/years old "general" threads.

If it takes you two years or more to get back to where you left off reading a manga, should you just reread it?

I've been on page 49 or chapter 15 of Bokura no Kiseki since around 2017. I've fully intended to continue it this entire time, and have had the page in pic related open first in Batato and then in Mangadex more often then not, but never got around to it.
I remember the basics of the plot but it's been so long I forget the little details.
Another example would be I've been on Chapter 23 of Yugami-kun ni wa Tomodachi ga Inai since 2017-18ish.

I don't know if I should just continue them where I left off or reread them to not forget little details and subplots.
What is standard procedure for things like this? Is genre significant in deciding?

Do what feels right.

It depends on how much you remember I guess. For example I haven't read Btooom! in years but I do remember more or less what happened and I can pinpoint the chapter where my memory starts getting fuzzy so if I were to pick it up again I would continue as usual and maybe reread certain chapters that contain critical details for the plot.

For things I might have forgotten a bit I usually start reading 5-10 chapters before the point where I left off as to refresh things and continue as usual.

If it has been a while and you were barely starting might as well read it all over again.

The genre matters for me as well, if it's a 4-koma I would just start reading where I left off, same with romcoms with endless filler and slice of life. At least that's how I approach these situations whenever they happen.

I've never read Bokura no Kiseki but I guess it's a matter of how much you remember and how episodic everything is. If the entire manga is heavily plot driven and arcs rely heavily on previously developed characterization and established changes to the status quo without clear breaking points it's probably best to reread it just to get into the momentum of things. It'd be like dropping Lord of the Rings in the middle of Helms Deep and then coming back years later and unpausing the movie.
On the other hand if it's mostly separate pieces that stand alone but are related to each other through consistent characters then you could just reread the current chapter, I'd say. It's like reading Order of the Phoenix a couple of years after Goblet of Fire.

it'd be like skipping to the page the hungry hungry caterpillar ate a lollipop

It depends on how much you care about the manga.

Ugh, I do the same thing, and I hate it.

Thanks, I've decided I'll reread it.

In trying to remember what I remember I kept remembering more and more things that I had forgotten; too many things. To continue where I left off would be doing a disservice to the story, of which I recall genuinely caring about.

The upper half of the page is practically burnt into my mind like a photo you'd look at daily, it sucks.

I've got dozens of manga open to their title page on managadex
Most of them I just remember being recommended but never starting and I don't want to just bookmark them and file them away because some of them aren't often updated so I'll just totally forget about them once I close the tab

I've finished less than a fifth of the manga I've read, since the vast majority of it was ongoing while I read it and then I got to the latest volume and stopped. It's normal.
