Since it wasn't mentioned: Honey and Clover for Josei. I have no idea how faithful the anime adaptation is, but I'll nominate it anyway.

Added everything until the last post.

Berzer@ It seems as Mahoraba is shounen because is serialized in a shounen magazine, so I'll added it in a shounen group.

VERY faithful. You could almost copy-paste the subs into the manga for scanlation. Almost.

@Marmot I suggest you should start to limit the nominations or else this will never end since you'll continually be making more groups for each demographic when 4 groups per demographic should have been enough...

I don't see nomination for Hanazakari no Kimitachi e in Shoujo, I'd add that. And It's not like that, Darling to Josei.

Yes, I know....that's what I wanted to do, you know, and actually, adding more groups is more hard work for me. But I let the nominations open for 2 reasons and I hope you understand.

1- In the first seinen poll, there was instant complain, I'm sure you saw it: "what a shitty seinen selection" And the next two people agreed with that comment. That made me sooo mad, because that was not MY selection, it was supposed to be MU's members selection, and nominations were open for 3 days. But if people didn't like the contestants, what was the point in having the tournament anyway? It was not going to be representative of MU's opinion.

2- There were titles that weren't in the initial 4 groups that really deserved a chance. For example: Air gear, Full Metal Alchemist, Black Cat, D.Gray-Man, Angel Densetsu. I really believe that all those deserved a chance, and one of them might even win.

3- Nominations are decreasing rapidly. Even members that use their 5 nominations per demographic, usually nominate titles that were nominated before bigrazz I have to add 1 or 2 new title, but the fact is that their choices are shown in the polls.

Anyway, I'll limit the nominations. 3 manga per demographic, just to make sure that no one makes me open a new group. Except for Josei, obviously.

Layhe@ Added: It's not like that, Darling, and "Hanazakari no Kimitachi e" was already nominated as: "Hana-kimi". But I can't thank you enough for nominating a new josei title

MajorMarmot, people are gonna complain, no matter what you do. So don't mind them.

Though I do think limiting nominations is a good idea as well. XD People will keep on adding and adding until we get to group Z with virtually unknown mangas. XD

Josei is my favorite genre... I just can't remember the titles well...XD

Josei
Baby Pop
Baku
Deep Love - Ayu no Monogatari
DOLL: IC in a Doll
Pumpkin and Mayonnaise

oh and I know that this has already been nominated, but please consider Kimi wa Petto... ^^ I simply adore it ~ and it would definitely win in any competition.

Lol, I think there's so much shounen/seinen nominated b/c there's more guys here. Anyway, here are my nominees:

Shounen: Gintama, Nabari no Ou, Mel Kano

Seinen: Arcana Soul , Ray, King of Thorns

Shoujo: Akuma to Love Song , Land of the Blindfolded, Fruits Basket (<==I'm actually surprised this hasn't been nominated yet...)

Josei: You Are My Pet, Baby Pop, Saiunkoku Monogatari., Paradise Kiss, Cherish, Vampire Girl, Honey and Clover (<== another title I expected to be already nominated...)

Also, can I nominate more shoujo since I added a bunch of josei? bigrazz
Plus, what about yaoi/shounen-ai and yuri/shoujo-ai?

Thank you for your nominations, about your questions:

Yes, you can nominate more shoujo, be my guest, just no more shounen and seinen, please, we already have lots of those. Just not to many titles, actually with the ones you already gave me 1 only need one to close a group. 2 or 3 are ok.

(Edit: Since I added Saiunkoku Monogatari as shoujou make it 2 max, please)

It seems that yaoi/shounen-ai and yuri/shoujo-ai don't precisely feet in the demographics, so I'm sorry to say that they will not be included this time. Maybe next year.

Honey and Clover was actually already nominated. You can check the las groups' formation for Josei here: http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?page=1&tid= 3952

Layhe@ I already added your nominations.

koneko@ Thank you so much for nominating so much josei. You are the best!!!! biggrin

Edit: CatzCradle@ "Vampire girl" was added to the polls as "Omae ga Sekai o Kowashitai Nara" and is already playing in group A.

And it seems that Saiunkoku Monogatari is shoujo

Fruits Basket was really not nominated, it also surprises me how I didn't notice that.
