    Re: Best Shounen of 2012

    I nominate Shokugeki no Souma, Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo, and Shuumatsu no Laughter.

    That's two hilarious comedies and one dramatic mini-series.

    Re: Best Shounen of 2012

    I nominate
    *Silver Spoon especially since Hashiken has really matured this year and this manga is always so fun to read.
    *Nanatsu no taizai, so far one of the best start for an adventure manga I have read in a long time
    *Assassination Classroom, well it has to be nominated some day

    Re: Best Shounen of 2012

    I support Nanatsu no Taizai and nominate Doubutsu no Kuni.

    Nanatsu no Taizai is very new, but very fun and extremely promising. It's from the mangaka of Kongou Banchou.

    Doubutsu no Kuni is one of the most overlooked shonen around. Lack of scans can explain it being overlooked on the online community, but for the life of me, I can't figure out why it's sales are so low, because it is great and by a famous mangaka(Mokoto Raiku of Konjiki no Gash fame).

    Hi, I'm sorry but your nomination is invalid because those manga were serialized before 2009. Please change your nomination if you want to.

    Re: Best Shounen of 2012

    I nominate "Hungry Joker". One of the few newcomers with potential to go on for a long time. Characters are lovable (the main character is really good) & the rest is a classical shounen. But it works really well & it's promising.

    Re: Best Shounen of 2012

    My nomination goes to Silver Spoon and Nanatsu no Taizai. To be honest I'm quite surprised that online fandom does not really into Nanatsu, probably one of the best recent serialization outside WSJ magazine.

    I agree :-)
    That's why it's good hoeru striked his comment. 2 of my favourite shounens from 2012 are from magazine.
