    Just curious as to what makes you say that? Regarding your comment on MHA.

    I believe it is kinda like when the lineup of the nominees for the Academy's Award for Best Animation has only one Pixar Picture, that in this case it is My Hero Academia.

    That pretty much has higher chances to win despite 2 or 3 pictures being superior.

    Suppose that's one way of looking at it. I'd argue that MHA would be a deserving winner, although I only have a passing knowledge of Fire Punch and haven't heard of the others so my opinion counts for fuck all really.

    Simple visibility. My Hero Academia has already become a major mainstream success. Its volumes sell far above half a million copies. The other series, while still successful, sell roughly ten times less. Since that is how things are, less popular series could benefit from such promotion more than their better established peer.

    And Hachimitsu to Clover / Shingeki no Kyojin /Ansatsu Kyoushitsu become 1st place even though they were already having major success.

    Dungeon Meshi was first last year and it sells a lot.

    I don't think MHA will take first place.

    Ari no Ou is probably the series with the least visibility of these 6, the closest to it would be Fire punch.

    Hopefully this means a boost or something for Ari no Ou.

    I wonder if Hitoshi Iwaaki(Parasyte,Historie) new Work Reiri can be nominated for a few awards. (he only writes this time around)

    Yeah I can dig that. If a series warrants it, then any added visibility can only help.

    I had faith in this award but it completely vanished in the last few years.

    Really ? From all the winners I can't find one which is not a really great manga.

    And the big news, Dungeon Meshi will at last be published in France by Casterman !

    I agree with Spyda and Kdom. I don't see anything wrong with last few years winners.

    I don't have an issue with the winners, i don't like the nominations (not all of them though) and also don't like how the some similar names pop quite often.

    Looking forward to Osamu Cultural Prize and Japan Media Arts Festival though.

    From this year Taisho for me its gotta be

    Kin no Kuni Mizu no Kuni.
