I've heard of all of these except Shingeki no Kyojin which tbh looks like the best out of them. I'm definitely gonna check it out when I get a chance.

I've watched the first ep of the anime version of Honto ni Atta! Reibai Sensei.

It was quite funny IMO.

SnK was to be expected, this stuff is awesome.

About 3 Gatsu no Lion, I was always curious about it but it seems to win every major award now. Time to start reading.

And as expected, most MAL users don't even know one of these series.

I knew of a few, but I haven't gotten to reading any of em.

They all look awesome, and I appreciate posts like this one for drawing things to my attention that might have otherwise slipped off my radar.


Seinen about astronauts? Dude that sounds amazing.

Sangatsu no Lion is a genuine masterpiece, good thing for Umino-sensei.

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

Deja-vu

I thought these already won some prize last year?
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

I was thinking this too.
I remember seeing 3 Gatsu no Lion and Shingeki no Kyojin winning something.
SnK is great, but I wish the scanlators do a faster job >_> Planning on reading 3 Gatsu no Lion

Not really last year--these titles have been nominated for the Manga Taisho award--Uchuu Kyodai twice, Shingeki no Kyojin once, and 3gatsu no Lion won the most recent Manga Taisho award last March.

Chihaya, SnK and 3gatsu? I'd be hard pressed to name many better series that came out recently. I love all of them. Makes me want to check out the other two.
