Quote from luzzz
WORST OVERALL MANGA: Doubt!!
BEST ACTION SERIES: Kekkaishi
BEST SEINEN: Pluto
BEST JOSEI: Hyakki Yakoushou
BEST NEW SERIES: Otoyomegatari




For the ones I didnt agree with are:-
BEST OVERALL MANGA: Shin Angyo Onshi even with the odd ending, its one of the few ones that actually have everything rolled in together plus great art, and still going strong ES
BEST SHOUJO: Akuma to Love Song
BEST ROMANCE: Nana for that genre- I pick this
BEST COMEDY SERIES: Gokusen - (I can't have enough of this!!)
BEST SHOUNEN: Mirai Nikki
Another notable Seinen is Cesare

(edit): coming back again, now that I have some more time ..and worse net speed..

MOST USELESS CHARACTER: The female lead in Tsumi ni Nureta Futari
MOST USEFUL CHARACTER: Akiba from ES
"FIERCEST" CHARACTER: Shamo in Shamo (was his name Shamo??)
BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT :Bleach
BEST OVERALL FEMALE CHARACTER: Revy from Black Lagoon- gun-totting babe!
BEST OVERALL MALE CHARACTER: Kirie Okayasu from Peach Girl-love 'im, love 'im, loooove 'im
BEST FEMALE CHARACTER IN A JOSEI/SHOUJO: Yankumi from Gokusen
BEST MALE CHARACTER IN A JOSEI/SHOUJO: Kirie Okayasu from Peach Girl-love 'im, love 'im, loooove 'im
BEST FEMALE CHARACTER IN A SHOUNEN/SEINEN: My mental image of Matsumoto Rangiku from Bleach
BEST MALE CHARACTER IN A SHOUNEN/SEINEN: Akiba from ES
CUTEST OVERALL CHARACTER: Honey sempai from Ouran Host club
PRETTIEST OVERALL CHARACTER
MOST HANDSOME OVERALL CHARACTER: I find Takumi from Nana irresistible though he is the devil!
STUPIDEST VILLAIN Most villains in Bleach
MOST AWE INSPIRING VILLAIN Itachi from Naruto
WORST HERO Ichigo from Bleach
BEST HERO Medicine man from Mononoke
BIGGEST WTF MOMENT Last scene of Shin Angyo Onshi- seriously! If I didnt love the rest of the series so, I would have crashed at the author's place- and demanded a huge compensation- ..oh- I am just venting my frustration late... cry

BEST OVERALL MANGA: Tie between Shinshi Doumei Cross and Sailor Moon
BEST COMEDY SERIES: Gintama
BEST ROMANCE: A lot, I can't pick just one.
BEST SHOUNEN: Death Note, Rurouni Kenshin, Gintama and Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle
BEST SHOUJO: Same as for romance
BEST NEW SERIES: AAA (started in 2008)
MOST USELESS CHARACTER: Sasuke from Naruto
MOST USEFUL CHARACTER: Kenshin Himura from Rurouni Kenshin
BEST OVERALL FEMALE CHARACTER: Sakura Kinomoto from Cardcaptor Sakura
BEST OVERALL MALE CHARACTER: Kenshin from Rurouni Kenshin, L from Death Note, Gintoki from Gintama and Tamaki from Ouran
BEST FEMALE CHARACTER IN A JOSEI/SHOUJO: A lot of them, but Yukino from Kare Kano and Sakura from Cardcaptor Sakura
BEST MALE CHARACTER IN A JOSEI/SHOUJO: Tamaki Suou from Ouran High School Host Club
BEST MALE CHARACTER IN A SHOUNEN/SEINEN: Kenshin Himura, L Lawliet and Gintoki
CUTEST OVERALL CHARACTER: Takuto's plush cat form from Full Moon wo Sagashite

BEST OVERALL MANGA: Pumpkin Scissors. damn, the plot could become soo kick ass.
WORST OVERALL MANGA: possibly inuyasha. dammit, it should have ended like five years ago along with one piece.
BEST ACTION SERIES: claymore. just decided to read it a few months ago and shit, it wuz a VERY good decision.
BEST COMEDY SERIES: soul eater. i watched the anime first and it made me shit myself. the manga was an afterthought, but better than the anime.
BEST HORROR SERIES: jack frost. i found it a bit funny also.
BEST ROMANCE: to-love-ru. nah, kidding. probably kimi no iru machi
BEST SHOUNEN: Mahou Sensei Negima! one of the first shounen manga i have ever read and it stuck with me.
BEST SEINEN: akumetsu. no need for an explanation.
BEST JOSEI: dont read any.
BEST SHOUJO: dont read any besides count cain and vampire knight. not really 2008 material.
BEST NEW SERIES: bakuman. has potential to become my favorite.
MOST USELESS CHARACTER: lau from kuroshitsuji. he is such a prick.
MOST USEFUL CHARACTER: lelouch from code geass. not much of a fan of the manga but code geass is the best anime and he is the coolest anime character.
FIERCEST CHARACTER: isley from claymore. god damn hes cool.
BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT: general cross dying or going away or whatever.
BEST OVERALL FEMALE CHARACTER: kaede from negima. kick ass ninja (REAL ninja) chick.
BEST OVERALL MALE CHARACTER: L. im in love. and im a guy.
BEST FEMALE CHARACTER IN A JOSEI/SHOUJO: confused
BEST FEMALE CHARACTER IN A SHOUNEN/SEINEN: Ghenna from aflame inferno.
BEST MALE CHARACTER IN A JOSEI/SHOUJO: ichijo from vampire knight. he is the only character i like at all from either of those demographics.
BEST MALE CHARACTER IN A SHOUNEN/SEINEN: dr.stein from soul eater. quite a guy. the plot could go crazy in his direction.
CUTEST OVERALL CHARACTER: Laetitia from vampire juujikai.
PRETTIEST OVERALL CHARACTER: lots. haha. maybe Ghenna again.
eyes
MOST HANDSOME OVERALL CHARACTER: shirogane from monochrome factor. i dunno. as a guy, i dont pay much attention.
STUPIDEST VILLAN: anybody from the current akatsuki. all the cool ones are dead (deidara).
MOST AWE INSPIRING VILLIAN: dio from jojos bizarre adventure. how can nobody see the epicness of the whole plot here?
WORST HERO: asuna from negima. stupid, arrogant, ignorant bitch.
BEST HERO: im sorry. its kurapika from hunter x hunter. he in the only good point of the manga and im still reading it with the hope that he (or the author) will return and fix the fucked up story.
MOST ANTICLAMTIC FIGHT: nagi vs whoever is the big bad in negima. that was like an instant ko in nagis part when he was totally drained. funny but stupid.
HANDSDOWN BEST FIGHT: gaara vs deidara ONLY IN THE ANIME! the manga version was short and lame. the manga only winner goes to dr. stein vs medusa
BIGGEST WTF MOMENT: when ciel (kuroshitsuji) didnt believe freckles was a girl he grabbed some booby. i know this happens a lot but this one really made me laugh

Why on earth would you revive a 3 year old topic about mangas of 2008?

People whine and betch about necromance'd topics as if they've never seen them before and as if it's the end of the world.
Honestly, it's bound to happen in forums as dead as these. It's a wonder why a site admin hasn't locked/put a warning on topics older than a year/half year/etc based on the amount of complaining that goes on.

We don't mind the necrobumps... besides, it's fun for some to state the time difference between last post.

We don't really like multiple threads though; so, necrobumps are the way to go when one has something they want to contribute.
