Actually I was surprised to find that Usagi Drop is more than a cute innocent slice of life manga. The characters are very well-done and surprising. I didn't expect myself to enjoy it much. It's at least better than Midnight Secretary. It's obvious when you have read both. I don't get what makes MS stand out in the list then...

I didn't vote for Berserk and I'm a female, I was too busy voting for Vagabond. I think it's interesting that everyone just jumps the gender assumption to a ridiculous degree. Do I think a lot or possibly even the majority of XXXholic voters were female? Sure. Do I think they ALL were? No, not at all. That's as silly an assumption as saying only boys read shounen and only girls read shoujo.

Um not everyone reads Shounen, Seinen, Shoujo or Josei in various combos either. I wasn't complaining or shaking my tiny fist of anger at Lamb for not doing them, I was just saying I was disappointed. And honestly with the numerous published Yaoi imprints in the US market alone it's not like it's a tiny market with only three fans sitting in a darkened room with a flashlight...

Oh wait, that's just me. bigrazz

It was a simple statement that I didn't expect a response to because basically it's a "too bad for you, not happening" thing, but your reasoning for why it won't happen made me raise an eyebrow because it can be turned right around.

Besides which these are arbitrary polls being done on a first series submitted in a limited time frame and then most votes from those series are going to be in the voting category. There will already be a bias towards only a small percentage because only a small number of frequent users will submit whereas many more will vote and then make it a point to complain when X series didn't make it into the poll.

What other "major genres" do you have in mind? AFAIK, these four are "The Major" genres of manga, be it gender bender, comedy, smut whatever, they all fall to at least one of the four genres.

as for the best seinen poll, I'm a guy, yet I voted for xxxHoLic, why? coz' I have yet to read the others. And I like the works of Clamp.

Shoujo=Girl
Shounen=Boy
Seinen=Young Man
So that's why, I guess.

I voted for Nodame. It's a pity 7 Seeds didn't make it to the top 5 - I like this one more than Nodame.
And, honestly, I'm wondering what Midnight Secretary is doing there. It's so out of place =_=

No Yuri/Yaoi polls? I was looking forward to those sad Too bad, I guess.

Yaoi would be fun :3
Yuri would be interesting too, though I do not read it.
Or maybe shonen-ai or shojo-ai polls, since yaoi and yuri are 18+

Anyway Nodame FTW! So best Seinen xxxHolic and here I thought it was a shounen/shoujo manga.

I'm actually pretty satisfied with what made it in the josei category. I would have liked to see Omae ga Sekai wo Kowashitai Nara up there, but Kimi wa Pet and Nodame Cantabile are two of my favorite mangas, and Paradise didn't suck. Though Midnight Secretary doesn't belong at all.

My theory is that the people who would have voted for Paradise Kiss (or Usagi Drop or Kimi wa Pet) noticed that Midnight Secretary might win, became horrified, and threw their support behind Nodame Cantabile. Or at least I did.
