The 2020 Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards revealed its winners at the San Diego Comic Con @ Home digital event on Friday, and both Taiyo Matsumoto's Cats of the Louvre manga (translated by Michael Arias) and Kamome Shirahama's Witch Hat Atelier manga (translated by Stephen Kohler) won this year's Best U.S. Edition of International Material—Asia award. The award was a tie.
The two manga competed against Paru Itagaki's BEASTARS (translated by Tomo Kimura), CLAMP's Magic Knight Rayearth 25th Anniversary Edition (translated by Melissa Tanaka), and Moto Hagio's The Poe Clan (translated by Rachel Thorn) manga, and Keum Suk Gendry-Kim's Grass (translated by Janet Hong) comic.

Additionally, Kousuke Oono's The Way of the Househusband manga (translated by Sheldon Drzka) won the Best Humor Publication category.

I made sure that all the winners since 2007, the year a manga and later Asian comic category was properly introduced, now have a note and the Award-Winning category.
I am currently doing the same for the winning manga before that but can use the help of the community. Eisners are a big deal. Its the highest comic price in the US.

I personally consider all three of them to be well deserved manga titles. Eisner awards are the only award presentation which i beleive is worthwhile and the judges actually have some sense. ofcourse there will always be some subcategories where i will be unhappy like the lettering. But regardless Im really glad that all these manga got their deserved awards. As I am a consumer of English localized Manga, I think it's good way to look back at the year. Hopefully the English manga market keeps growing like this.
