    Please keep in mind, that the next phase is only for content released in 2012. So if someone would like to nominate a plot twist, that plot twist should've happened in 2012.

    There's also another requirement...the titles that can be nominated are limited to the ones that started publishing at least in 2009. So only 2009 - present day manga are allowed.
    I know that it probably is too late for sharing my opinion but i don´t really like this requirement, it is way too limited which will, in my opinion, make the quality of the nominations decrease. I liked the "system" for the anime awards 2012 better with 2 categories whose only difference was "all time" and "2012 only".

    Thank you for your input. Basically by making two types of categories, we're trying to cater members who think that awards like these are "repetitive" since the winners are always be the same, and also the other members who think that such repetition would not become a huge problem. Also, we're hoping that members would help promoting new series in 2012 categories.

    Unfortunately serialization year comes first, not volume releases, so Kuroko no Basket is not eligible...and yeah, the rule refers to the official publication year, not scanlation

    Also wouldn't it be better that the best manga is renamed into best comic so as to include manhwa too ?
    We have best manhwa/manhua separately...well for this year at least...but if you have reasoning for merging those together, please shoot...

    Well it's because there is already best shonen, seinen and shoujo separately so i don't really understand the purpose of best manga. If it's the best of all comic categories then it should include manhwa too don't you think ?

    Tower of God & Noblesse have become serious contenders for "Best Asian Comic".

    Re: MH Manga Awards 2012 - Best Manga of 2012 Discussion thread

    Is the Best Mangaka of 2012 category for any mangaka that has a new serialization between 2009 and 2012, or is it for any mangaka that has gotten their first serialization between 2009 and 2012?

    Both conditions are eligible to be nominated.

    Yep it´s hard, on the other hand, i understand the attempt to make the winners of the awards vary more.

    Re: MH Manga Awards 2012 - Best Manga of 2012 Discussion thread

    I'm sorry because I can't get what this award is about (the 2012 part), because even in the oldes some new characters were introduced at that time line that you want 2009-2012 so why can't I nominate them? Like Roxanne from Claymore she is very recent in the release (I don't know when she was introduced because I as a Claymore fan with the monthly release I get lost in dates but I'm positive that she wasn't introduced before that time). So why can't I nominate her?

    Hi, thank you for your comment. In those 2012 categories, we're arranging the nominations based on the date of manga serialization as a whole, with the exception of moment categories, where you're allowed to nominate manga from any year, as long as the content is published within the year of 2012. I know you might be disappointed by this, but maybe next year we would have best female character of all time so you can nominate a new female character in Claymore.

    Wow, i did not know that. I honestly thought the "2009 rule" also applies to the moment categories

    Re: MH Manga Awards 2012 - Best Manga of 2012 Discussion thread

    hmm.. I checked the shoujo nominations and there are none, and I have a theory why.

    I wanted to nominate but when I checked my reading list (including those already completed), I noticed everything was earlier than 2009 hahahaha. I'm sure there are newer shoujo titles out there but we all know there are no weekly shoujo releases, add to the fact that there are slow scanlation releases too. So it's quite hard to nominate recent works that have very few chapters out. :/

    The good ones you would know because they get a steady release over a couple of years.

    Just sayin.

    I agree that shoujo category deserved more love. IMHO, who's not an expert in shoujo, I still believe that there are still well-received shoujo manga out there which get steady scanlation releases, like Taiyou no Ie and the recently "cancelled" Orange would be two of the examples.

    But probably here, shoujo & josei itself aren't really that popular at the first time, which is very regrettable.

    I thought of Orange too, since that was recent, but, since it was cancelled...
