The nominating committee is composed mainly of bookstore staffers who are in charge of their respective stores' manga. This year's nominating committee consisted 94 individuals, who selected from 247 titles. Any manga title that was released in 2018 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 2019, which will be announced at an awards ceremony to be held sometime in late March or early April.

Previous winners include:

Delicious in Dungeon, Golden Gold, and Nagi no Oitoma were also nominated for the awards last year (with Delicious in Dungeon also nominated in 2016).
