When it comes to telling a story, lot of other authors could learn from Togashi.
Besides we are here rewarding a manga, not publishing schedule.
I nominate Hunter x Hunter for best Shounen.
Simply cause it's the best ongoing shounen manga.
I nominate Histories Strongest Disciple Kenichi for best Shounen.
Having the best shounen representation of the weak guy becoming powerfull and having the strenght to fight for what he believes in , actually getting somewhere with the girls he loves on(unlike many others) and ofcourse the fan service.
ps. and its damn hard to clean as well
I nominate Gintama as best shounen.
It's hilarious and when it becomes serious it is epic.
So many great shounens out there, but Karakuri Circus is an exceptional yet underrated one. Some might feel the artworks awkward, but the plot is very interesting and somehow, original. I nominated Karakuri Circus for best shounen.
I nominate Toriko for best shounen. A series full of testosterone which I think makes it a great shounen series.
As with desu, I'm also shocked FMA hasn't been mentioned more.
As much as I would like to vote for Naruto, I can't because it hasn't been the best this year for me. Many chapters have made me go :-_-. Dragon Ball was amazing, much better than most manga named, and as much as I love Beelzebub, there was some chapters I didn't like. So it's a tossup between Dragon Ball and FMA, but I would have to go with FMA as it has had superior story.
And none of that lazy mangaka stuff.
Also, the OP will be updated with the nominations so far within thirty minutes.
I'm here to troll Milly and nominating Hunter X Hunter as best Shounen since I can't vote for One Piece.
Why? Aside the Hiatuses it reaches a level of action and storytelling hard to see in other mangas. And most characters have an incredible amount of charisma, something that also fits the theme of Hunters. Above all is a manga who doesn't disrupt its own diegesis as mangas like Bleach or Naruto. And I'm not trolling here, I like also those two but...We all know it's true.
Just to make sure... One Piece can't be voted here and in Best Manga Overall right?
If any manga won a category in the previous year, it can't be voted again for the same category. If OP didn't win the Best Manga OVerall, then it can be nominated.
I nominate Gamaran. One of my top five of mangas to read right now.
since it is back in action
hunter x hunter
I nominate Fairy Tail for best Shounen
dont ask me why?
