Demi-chan so good and popular? I liked her adaptation and Hikari, but she did not seem so special to me.

P to JK over all the titles that could have won? When one of my favourite ongoing manga got nominated, too? I am up to date with all but Deguchi Zero but if I had to pick one from the nominations, I would have picked Harumatsu Bokura because of Towa.

It's strange how some really amazing shoujo manga never get nominated for the awards. I can list at least ten such ongoing manga from top of my head that are better than P to JK or even Omofuri.

Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai should have been nominated in the general category. Anyways, would have loved to see Tarareba Musume winning it from the nominees. Akiko-sensei's manga are always so fascinating.

Kishuku Gakkou no Juliet is the only shounen manga from the other list of nominees I am reading. It's actually very enjoyable. The biggest selling point of the manga is the romance between the two main characters. Not just because I prefer manga with definite romantic pair than harem settings, the manga is funny and at the same time has a lot of emotions in it. Persia and Inuzuka's struggle for being in love is quite endearing.

Really glad to see Shoukoku no Altair taking the top spot on the Shounen category. Can't wait for the anime to air this Summer either. I haven't heard of The Fable before but might check it out in the future.

Kishuku Gakkou no Juliet, really? That's legit surprising but okay. I guess it's alright though

Oh right, my apologies. I thought it's also good to include the nominations because you listed those as well.
