Yuki Suetsugu's Chihayafuru Wins 2nd Manga Taisho Award
posted on by Egan Loo
Unlike many other manga prizes which are chosen by the editors of the manga publishers themselves, the Manga Taisho nominating committee is dominated by the bookstore staffers who are in charge of their respective stores' manga sections. The awards are also limited to works published last year with eight or less volumes to promote relatively newer works. The committee nominated 10 works this year.
Last year, Shinichi Ishizuka won the first ever Manga Taisho for his Gaku - Minna no Yama work, and he appeared at Tuesday's ceremony to present Suetsugu's award. Suetsugu drew the picture to the left to offer her thanks for the award. Tokyopop published Suetsugu's Flower of Eden manga until 2005, when a controversy forced the title's cancellation in Japan and North America.
