There's also an actual series for it that follows the manga much more closely.

yep, I know about it, but I thought it was a remake or something...
haven't ever had an interest in this manga, not my genre.

Really, get a clue... Naruto = Shueisha (Jump) and Kodonsha is a different label of magazine so of course it didn't win. And not like any shonen in Japan rivals OP so even in Jump it normally should always lose against OP.

At least read the link if you didn't knew anything of it yet...

Never thought that the manga that would win the general category would be Ah! My Goddess. I'm a bit surprised.


[x2]
same, but glad :)


It doesn't surprise me that it wins since it's still serialised so it has to do something right at least. What surprises me more is that it keeps serialised when I've heared that in 20 y there is still no Belldandy - Keiichi progress. Not even like a kiss, which makes me pass on the manga itself.

Q.E.D. Shomei Shuryo


I love it!! This is really an awesome manga, but very few people read it. However, the winning is obvious.


Well kind of hard to read when there isn't even one chapter translated and when most of us are incapable of reading Japanese.

Really pondering of taking up some Japanese classes like my big brother did and his wife still is doing.

Go Ah! My Goddess!

Like others, I'm surprised but delighted that this won something.

May 12, 2009 10:27 AM by Ellechan

Good Job!
Fairy Tail!

May 12, 2009 8:58 AM by Td99

Not surprised that Fairy Tail got counted, although I've never read it, I've seen and read Mashiro's Groove Adventure and I did like that.

Yay for Aa! Not so surprising at all. Meh for Fairy Tail, art sucks, there are tons of better shounens. I wonder what are the criteria for winning.

May 12, 2009 8:23 AM by Antanaru

I'm quite suprised to see Fairy Tail as a winner here, but good for Mashima.
Oh well, at least the copy of One Piece has been awarded with one of these awards.
