If they have a manga version, of course everything is allowed.

I already added those two titles to the list, and BTW, The Melancholy of Suzumyia Haruchi rules!!!

Wow...I'm surprised there's not Nana or W Juliet in the shoujo section. They practically both wave the shoujo banner. I nominate them.

And I also noticed there's no smut manga in the shoujo tourney. While I'm not really a big fan, I think smut is a big part of shoujo, and it should at least have a representative.^^

Ah, that, I'm not really sure about. In my mind shoujo/josei and shounen/seinen are not differentiated, so... I kinda forgot. XD 5 years ago when I was a manga addict there was only shoujo and shounen and nothing else. biggrin

But then if it IS josei, i can scrap that but I still nominate W Juliet. bigrazz

Thank you very much Wild Star for nominating a shoujou title. I am so happy that I'm adding W-Juliet to today's shojou poll in group B!!! >.<

As Dr. Love said, Nana is in fact categorized as Josei and was already a contestant in this section of the tournament.

And about the smut.......you are totally right, but I have no idea of anything shoujou related. I have only read 3 shoujou in my life and they are already in the lists. I also noted that there is no Yaoi in the shoujou polls, but nothing I can do if no one nominates them.

If you know of any representative smut titles, please nominate them and I'll add them right away.

How is Yaoi shoujo? as for the smut titles...I see what you mean but given that we can only nominate five manga per demographic most if not all will always nominate the popular titles...and most of those aren't smut from what I know

Yaoi is not shoujou? wow, I really don't know anything about shoujou, I though that young girls liked that kind stuff.....or maybe I just have perverted fangirl friends....anyway, I wouldn't know, I have all Yaoi blocked.

But now I'm curious, in what demographic does Yaoi enters?

Non...Yaoi is Yaoi...much like Hentai is Hentai, It doesn't fall into any demographic, then again, Yaoi could also be considered a form of Hentai, but still hentai doesn't fall under any demographic

Frustradedguy@ Thanks for the nominations. I already added them to the lists. Just a few notes: GUNNM is already in the polls as Battle Angel Alita, and Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou as Kare Kano. And Nana and Nodame Cantabile are already in the polls, in fact, Nodame is competing right now in group A. You might want to check it out: http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=3931&pa ge=1#post122268

And you actually nominated 3 shoujo that weren't in the lists, so you get an internet and a smiley as promised. biggrin

Blackraven@ So yaoi doesn't enter to the demographics...great...that means no yaoi in the tournament!!! better for me. bigrazz

No one's mentioned Honey and Clover >_<
Josei.

If I can nominate more than three titles for josei, then I'd also like to add
Kiss and Never Cry

(otherwise I'll just hang on to 'nomination tickets' and let someone else nominate Kiss and Never Cry.)

Nodame Cantabile, Usagi Drop and Hotaru no Hikari all made the Top 10 best-seller for josei title in Japan last year. Would be interesting to see how they fare with the international audience. ^_^

Thank you soooooo much for nominating Josei, actually you can nominate up to 5 titles, but I would like to complete at least another group of Josei, so I'll let you nominate even more.

BTW, How could I forget Honey and Clover.....

Edit: This goes to everybody, if you already nominated 5 josei titles but want to nominate more, feel free to do so.
