We have best manhwa/manhua separately...well for this year at least...but if you have reasoning for merging those together, please shoot...Quote:
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 ?
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?
Geez lol I'm struggling to come up with nominations. I am currently reading like 50 ongoing manga and have completed over 130, but it turns out most of them started before 2009...

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?
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.
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.
