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 2017 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 2018, which will be announced at an awards ceremony to be held sometime in late March or early April.

Previous winners include:

Delicious in Dungeon, The Promised Neverland, and Golden Gold were also nominated for the awards last year (with Delicious in Dungeon also nominated in 2016).
