Publisher Shougakukan announced the winners of its 65th Manga Awards on Wednesday.
Serialized in Big Comic Spirits since January 2015, Ao Ashi is a sports drama following a J-League Youth team. The series ranked 4th in votes for the 2017 Manga Taishou Award. Volume 19 of the ongoing manga will be shipped on January 30.
Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai: Tensai-tachi no Renai Zunousen (Kaguya-sama: Love is War)
Adapted to a one-cours anime in Winter 2019 and a live-action movie in September 2019, this romantic comedy has its second anime season slated for Spring 2020. The manga's 17th volume went on sale on January 17.
Maiko-san Chi no Makanai-san
Shounen Sunday's Maiko-san Chi no Makanai-san is a slice-of-life series following the daily life of a 16-year-old girl, Kiyo. Unable to follow her dream of becoming a maiko (an apprentice to a geisha), Kiyo finds her place in cooking for the household instead. A heart-warming food-focused manga, the series had its 12th volume published in December.
Nagi no Oitoma (Nagi's Long Vacation)
Published in Elegance Eve since June 2016, Nagi no Oitoma has received considerable attention in the last year. Female readers voted it 3rd and 11th in "Kono Manga ga Sugoi!" rankings' 2019 and 2020 polls, respectively; Kodansha nominated the manga for its 43rd Manga Awards in May 2019; it won an Excellence Award at the 22nd Japan Media Arts Festival in March 2019; and it ranked 10th in votes for the 2019 Manga Taishou Award.
Nagi no Oitoma follows 28-year-old Nagi who grows weary of her life focused on pleasing people around her, and—after a heart-breaking incident with her boyfriend—decides to reset her life with no one she knows in it. The series was adapted to a 10-episode live-action drama in Summer 2019 and published its 6th volume in September.

Kaguya is something special so well deserved, I sincerely dont know how its inching closer and closer to 200 chapters and yet it still feels like its in it prime. Too bad its gonna take multiple seasons to get to some of this good stuff.
That's the only downside. Then again, so many of the chapters are 10/10s that it is impossible to leave out not having them animated and just go for the 11 or 12/10s.
Did you read 175? The tap on one shoulder and moving on the other direction had 2000 gallons of caramel in it and that wasn't all! I melted.
