Seems to be a highly acclaimed award ceremony. Oh well, more manga to read I guess.

Super glad to see Otoyomegatari up there!

Otoyomegatari is nice, but I honestly can't understand why Terra Formars is on that list.
AssClass is getting a lot of hype as well.

However, I am truly interested in Unimachi Dairy. Too bad it'll most likely take a while before Western audiences will get to read it.
