Manga News: Check out this week's new manga (10/13/14 - 10/19/14).
Forum News: The nomination phase of the Community Awards 2014 is live! Visit new sections for Nisekoi and Kingdom!
Ok sounds good to me, also I hope the 3 line limit isn't mandatory. I certainly can write an entire paragraph about why a certain nomination should win and stuff.
I think three lines is a good amount; within three lines you can write several ideas to why a character or a series is worth being nominated and voted for, without spoiling too much or putting a too-long summary. Well, we can enjoy extra one or two lines but more would be a bit too much.
If I remember, last year there was also a turn to decide of the tie between the nominations. I guess the discussion will be more important during this part
I think it would've been better if only the 2011 contents of a manga were considered, if we were to turn this event into a regular annual one. This can be like 'people's choice of 2011' list. Then we wouldn't have to exclude winners of previous year either since only the content in the corresponding year will come into play. We could also create a system of ranking weekly/monthly. Then we can add the weekly points and add the points given by reviewers and publish a 'critique's choice' list for different categories. I guess its too late for this year, but if we can do this from the next year...then it can be a great thing...like imdb of manga.

this is great,I didn't take part at this contest last year but I am really enjoying this, right now
So the first week is done with and a lot of votes have come in for most categories. Some of them are close like best fight, and best full cast. While others are a landslide like Best completed manga which looks like FMA will win hands down because of sheer nominations lol.
I'm looking up some of the manga nominated and I'm enjoying a few of them but others I can't get into. I have to say though, some of the nominations make it hard not to vote for them while others make me wonder why it was nominated lol.
Its been a lot of fun and I can't wait for more votes and more nominations. BTW EVERYONE VOTE BLEACH WHERE I NOMINATED IT IN EACH CATEGORY. You scratch my back and I'll scratch yours kinda deal.
excuse me,I have a question: does the contest refer to the whole history of mangas,or just to what has been happening this year? for example,the best plot twist/epic moment,does it include DRAGON BALL or just what happened this year?
I'm glad that one of the global mods 'liked' my idea...so thanks bene. But i was kinda hoping from some more reactions from some other folks,mods and members. I guess you guys are too busy with the current event...i just hope that you'll consider what i proposed for the next year.
I think the main problem with a yearly award is to avoid that it becomes a big three award ( i wouldn't be against a no big three contest one year...)
One of the good point of the awards is that they make us discover some new titles. I think a mix of yearly and global categories is the best solution
Happy New Years to all of you. Its been 2 weeks since the contest has started so we are in the last stretch of the contest. Make sure to vote for nominations in all the categories.
I personally think 1 manga can only win 2-3 categories tops. Anymore than that and it would be unfair to other mangas. Its like having One Piece for best Shounen, Manga of 2011, Action and Best fight. That kinda dominance would be boring and counterproductive to the awards.
I just noticed there are nowhere clear guild lines differencing support and main chars. I mean for example Erza Scarlett actually falls into the category female support, but she is also in female lead (which I voted). I mean she had her own fights, dedicated character development and is part of the main gang, but the actual leads of FT are Natsu and Lucy.
I personally think every character who is not appearing regularly can be counted as support. Anyway, just wanted to bring this issue up.
Also I wanted to throw a new category for a award: "Best manga quote"
