Amatsuki is a Josei? I never knew it. I knew it had a bit of shounen ai/Yaoi undetones but I assumed it was a seinen. No wonder so many chicks love Bonten (I am one of them) I would have voted for it but Nodame Cantabile got my vote. Chiaki is an ass but he's my favorite and Nodame is just too cute and unique --
Honey & Clover
Mukashi no Hanashi
All the nominees are great series and they should all be read both by girls and boys; unfortunately there can be only one winner. And the MangaHelpers Award for Best Josei goes to:
Congratulations to Nodame Cantabile for winning this award category! Tomoko Ninomiya-sensei was extremely success in creating a story about music that transcends the musical notes to touch the hearts of the people who reads it. Nodame Cantabile is such a fantasy story that it reminded its readers of how wonderful classical music can be.

The MH moderators think Nodame Cantabile and Honey and Clover are magnificent series as well; but they consider Mukashi no Hanashi just as great and that is why all three should be the winners for this category.
Thank you to all the members who participated by voting for their favorite series and for helping us choose the best josei for this award category!
