Manga Taisho is a comparatively new manga award established last year. The judges are chosen from bookshop clerks and manga-lovers from various fields. The candidate are limited to relatively new or short mangas (up to eight volumes in comic books) so it won't be time-consuming and easy to get on at a whim.

Here is the shortlist.
