Best Manga Voting Begins February 5!
Crunchyroll, the anime (and manga) streaming service, has launched their second annual Anime Awards. New this year is a Best Manga category, which you will be able to vote in starting Monday, February 5. The six nominees (in alphabetical order) are:
- Delicious in Dungeon by Ryoko Kui (Yen Press)
- Descending Stories: Show Genroku Rakugo Shinju by Haruko Kumota (Kodansha Comics)
- Golden Kamuy by Satoru Noda (VIZ Media)
- In This Corner of the World by by Fumiyo Kouno (Seven Seas Entertainment)
- My Brother’s Husband by Gengoroh Tagame (Pantheon Books)
- My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness by Nagata Kabi (Seven Seas Entertainment)
I was honored to be asked to be a judge for this award, along with Brigid Alverson, Deb Aoki, Valerie Complex, Katherine Dacey, Zack Davisson, Megan DeYarman, and Jason Thompson. While I didn’t necessary love every title on this list, I think it’s a great representation of the range of manga published in 2017. And who would have guessed Seven Seas would get the most nominations?
