    So far it looks like there are a lot of Naruto fans voting for all the categories Naruto can be in so it might be a big winner. However we can't say much till at least 1 week mark passes.

    That's true, but I'm interested in what your opinion are, and how will it change or not, during the evolution of the Awards....

    Naruto might be in for lots of categories as last year OP was there, however this is just the nomination round...people still have time to change nominations as they are reminded by others of other good stuff...

    In the end, it's the voting stage that will matter the most, so it's tough to say...heavy titles, which could combat Naruto are still to come...like Full Metal Alchemist for example

    Well I'm hopeing Bleach, HunterXHunter, and Fairy Tail win a few categories. Katekyo Hitman could use some wins as well. Also Beelzebub is a good one so I hope it wins at least one category.

    I don't think Hi no Tori is eligble for best manga of 2011... It ended during the 80s...

    People are messing the Best of 2011 and Best Manga in General categories.

    Maybe many of you share the same concern. I mean, the difficulties are clear. Most of the anually awards only deal with what were up during the particular year. As for this site award? I don't know, but something seems off. Imho, it will be simpler yet more exciting to limit the contenders, just for the chapters published this year, or from December last year.

    I mean, for example, how can I choose the winner of the best shounen excluding the only one I followed thoroughly, just because it was the last year winner? I do understand that there is a difference between the best manga of all time and the best manga this year.

    We understand this concern, however these Awards are still in progress as far as development, ideas go...it's just the second year, so we are still trying to figure out how to run this in the future, how to make it pleasant and a good event for everyone...

    This rule was made in order to make the overall event more interesting...and it offers the chance for other mangas to get the spotlight...

    Also the new categories will definitely make it up for you, in case you consider the rule unfair or too restrictive...categories as Best Action, Best Author are there

    PS: oh...concerning that we allow people to nominate just based on the content of this year...we considered it, but this year we couldn't find a safe way to actually make this happen...I think it's safe to say that many will disregard the year restriction, and just go for what they loved most

    I highly appreciate your passion (and patience, lol) for this community. Learning from the big shots out there, they usually have some kind of comittee to make lists of the contenders/nominations for each category, then the participants can simply vote from the lists. It will take away some liberty from us, but in general the quality of the event might increase considerately. This is my two cents.

    Well, that's true...but I think we are much more open minded about this...MH staff is a volunteer team, that means that we are members just like everyone else, and therefore our opinions weigh as much as everyone else's opinion...in this case it would be a bit smug to make a list by ourselves...we aren't pros nor specialists

    Also this event is not just an event to choose the best, but to give the opportunity for everyone to get in touch with new titles....personally I chose many stuff that I read from last year's Awards...so I guess the motivation for this event is a bit different from other similar events out there on the interwebz

    Re: MH Manga Awards 2011 Discussion thread

    i was wondering , why isnt their a category for best story , when there is one for artwork (or couldnt they have been broken down to best artist/author , besides having best mangaka as separate category; there are plenty of duo's that not always work together or artists/authors working with others for different series)

    Re: MH Manga Awards 2011 Discussion thread

    I think we definitively need awards that are specific to the year. After these are the the 201x awards we are talking about. I think it could be very natural for categories such as best double spread, best chapter, best new manga.
    Then for such thing like best manga or best character, it's more complicate since both way are interesting. I mean, since Kaiten advertised Blade of the immortal, many member have started it and the manga is in good place to win some award so in a way it's a 2011 awards but a manga like Hunter x Hunter as also some good feedback because the current arc is specially good and not because it was discovered this year.
    To make simple, maybe new categories could be for all time manga and yearly categories restricted to 2011.

    I proposed last year to ban all manga from all categories who actually won something in the last awards.
    Some nominations concerning one piece or naruto are hard to accept for example.

    Now that's a good idea, and honestly I don't remember it coming up until now...since we can't really add or remove new categories, this year it will stay out, but it will be in next year, that's for sure

    Re: MH Manga Awards 2011 Discussion thread

    Hi guys, I'm M3J. My categories are Best Shounen, Funniest Moments, and Best Fights.

    I'm posting here to let you know that if you haven't properly nominated your nomination, proper formatting and all, I'm not counting it. If other mods want to, they can, but I'm not gonna count it. Why? It's not in correct format, and I only look at the nomination, which should be in red bolded font. You can either repost your nomination correctly or edit your nomination correctly and PM me so I can count it.

    Thank you for your inconvenience.

    Re: MH Manga Awards 2011 Discussion thread

    Ok so after I reread the rules I have a couple of questions.

    1. The contest ends in about 2 weeks and a few days so that means January something is the last day right?
    2. The nomination that has the most votes wins in each category by the end of the contest right? Or will we have a voting round after all the nominations that didn't make the cut are taken out?
    3. Can a voter post a reason why something shouldn't be nominated or post about why their nomination is the best choice to get more voters? (I mean as long as the post is not inflammatory or bashing in regards to other nominations. )
