Best Manga of 2008 -- Readers' Choice!

Thanks to everyone who advertised our little poll (special thanks to Melinda at there it is, plain as daylight, Brigid at Mangablog), as a result we got a nice mix of seinen junkies and shojo lovers to balance out the votes. Blackjack is the clear favorite from both reader-types, as it was not only in many people's top three, it often was listed as their first choice. (Taking a page out of Brian Cronin's book, people's first choice received 3 points, second choice 2 points and third choice 1 point). More discussion to follow in the coming days as we examine the incredible range of manga people voted for.

But tonight, here are the results:

TOP THREE NEW MANGA OF 2008

1. Blackjack - Total Points 23

2. High School Debut -- Total Points 16

3. Real -- Total Points 14

TOP THREE CONTUINING MANGA OF 2008

1. NANA -- Total 20 Points

2. xxxholic -- Total 15 points

3. Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service -- Total 12 points

I'm amused to note that my top three choices for new manga ended up being the top three for the entire group, albeit arranged in a slightly different order.
