Because of the recent Top 10 Best Anime of 2013! and Katmic's top 20 Manga and Manwha, a lot of you guys and gals ask me to make a manga poll because I notice most folks especially the battlations tend to read the manga more than watching anime whether it's current or not. I said that I didn't have a lot time for the project. When I worked with Acura Max for Screened's Top TV Shows of 2013, we had more TV shows than anime. He had a good idea at the time. Making a list of nominees rather than adding the entire list of TV shows. For anime series, it's a short list about 100. For manga, it deals with US acquired ones and ones that only run in Japan. Plus, most of the manga series are obscure. No one makes a neregate chart for new manga series. You see nerecharts for Winter 2014 Anime Guide and rest of the season. The fact is that anime makes more money and gets more hype than manga. Also, anime is easier to simulcast than manga. Having a legal venue exposes it.
I have to use weighted calculations for this poll. I will go into detail with you.
For this project, I'm going to ask you guys for help.
- Nominate manga series that currently publishes in 2013 and it counts for series that ended in 2013, too. As long as the manga runs in 2013 past January's 1st week, I'll count it.
- For voting, I'll set up a Gdoc form. I won't do weighted calculations like sickVisionz since I have no idea how to do it. It will be good fashion tally count. I'll take care of that during this weekend and set up a deadline.
- Do you want it on the front page or not? I don't know if the staff will post it since it's a month late. Plus, they do a Vice Pit on it. It takes preparations to gather most of the staff. Sam was absent in the 2013 Vice Pit.
Please see Voting Sheet to suggest manga and manhwa series.
