The nominating committee is composed mainly of bookstore staffers who are in charge of their respective stores' manga. Any manga title that was released in 2016 and has eight volumes or less is eligible. The volume cap is intentionally added so that the prize winners would be relatively new works that have not already earned their popularity through sheer longevity.

The second round of voting will determine the winner of Manga Taisho 2017, which will be announced at an awards ceremony held on March 28.

Previous winners include:

  • 2016 - Golden Kamuy by Satoru Noda
  • 2015 - Kakukaku Shikajika by Akiko Higashimura
  • 2014 - A Bride's Story by Kaoru Mori
  • 2013 - Umimachi Diary by Akimi Yoshida
  • 2012 - Silver Spoon by Hiromu Arakawa
  • 2011 - March comes in like a lion by Chika Umino
  • 2010 - Thermae Romae by Mari Yamazaki
  • 2009 - Chihayafuru by Yuki Suetsugu
  • 2008 - Gaku - Minna no Yama by Shinichi Ishizuka

Dungeon Meshi, Tokyo Tarareba Musume, and Nami yo Kiite Kure were also nominated for the awards last year. Hi Score Girl was previously nominated in 2013.
