About Petshop of Horrors :

The author is a shoujou/josei mangaka, and the publishers also work with this kind of genres or demographics, and taking the fact that is a horror manga. I will ad it as a JOSEI if nobody argues against that.

And thank you very much for all the people that have been joining the tournament, I really thought that it was a lost case, but it seems that it might actually be done. biggrin

Thanks for clearing that up; I'll go fix my list, then. ^^

blakraven66 is right, even thought the demographics are all messed up, it would end like this:

Shoujou

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion
Kare Kano
Vampire Knight

Shounen:

Naruto
Bleach
One Piece
Fairy Tail
EyeShield 21
Mx0
Claymore

Seinen:

Berserk
Gantz
Basilisk

You have 7 shounen as nominees when 5 is the max.

Note: I'm taking Code Geass as Shoujou because it's serialized in a shoujou magazine.

sakon@ If you were so kind to edit your post or just tell me which ones you're taking out, I would thank you a lot.

Note2: In the case that I get no answer, I'll take out Claymore (It's the top nominated shounen and sure to enter in the actual polls), and a random title between: Bleach, Fairy Tail, Mx0, Eyehield 21 and One piece, that have already been nominated. Or if another member nominates one of those, even better, I'll take out that one. This is to ensure that the most manga gets in the polls.

I'll start counting today and probably we will have some polls. Yay!!!

Edit: Sorry for not noticing this before:

Dragonfiremule@ Deadman Wonderland is seinen and Angel Heart is most probably shounen

Kana503@ Hoshi no Koe is seinen.

I already counted the nominees, and we have:

Seinen: 40 (taking in count the titles that were misplaced)
Shounen: 36 (taking in count a title that was misplaced)
Shoujou: 26
Josei: 13

Now, I have 2 options:

1- Make 5 polls of 8 and 7 contestants each for seinen and shounen.
2- Keep the original plan of 4 polls of 8 titles and kill the rest, this can be made by 2 ways:

a) Kill randomly tirles that have only one nomination (original plan)
b) Kill titles that are not scanlated or published in English. Those ones won't be competition because most people (non japanese speakers) don't have access to them and won't vote for titles they don't know.

Any comments?

Great Teacher Onizuka
Eyeshield 21
D.Gray-Man
Beck

Seinen:
Vagabond
Monster
20th Century Boys

You're right, Airgear should be there, and I already added it with D.Gray-man and Beck to the E Group. Thank you very much.

All your seinen were already in the polls, and you can go an vote for them already, actually. http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=3904

Thanks for helping!!!
