    A couple weeks ago...

    I'm voting for Claymore, even though the current story is boring me. I'd be perfectly ok with Fairy Tail though.

    Nothing amazing in this one. FT was boring. As for Negima, I can't get interested in a manga where the main character is a shouta.

    I'll vote for Claymore since it's the only one I managed to read.

    Vagabond should have gotten a second shot. No fair matching it up against Berserk!

    I would vote for Caymore, but not much to discuss with only one chapter a month....


    Fairy Tail it is!

    Forgive me for asking, but would anyone say this manga is awesome?
    The plot doesn't sound fantastic, but I'm so desperate for a decent manga that I'd settle for anything. It sounds like a bit childish, but if someone would correct me and tell me it's jaw dropping :awesome I'll change my mind. I'm voting for it anyway, since Claymore is making me snooze.

    It's pretty similar to One Piece if you've read that.

    Nothing more than your regular shounen.

    Okay 3 people then, and I wasn't trying to be funny. Just pointing out the true facts, lets be honest, it might be a great manga but the place would be better use for a more popular manga.

    If you nominate a manga such as that, it would garner more attention towards it. Is the "Manga of the Month" based on popularity or how well it's written/illustrated?

    Umm, well it's a poll so isn't it self explanatory. On second thought, I don't want Claymore to win because it would just be a bunch of "who's hottest?" threads...

    I mean nomination-wise. Does it have to be known by alot to be nominated as a potential "Manga of the Month?"

    Oh, well popularity seems to be a factor, but it seems to be the whim of the mods honestly. Otherwise you'd think REAL or Pluto would be up here...or Vagabond, Gunnm Last Order etc.

    Claymore's only released once a month. Last month's was a short chapter. I don't know if that means this month's will be longer. I suspect it'll wrap up the current battle, but will we have any post-battle resolution with a ground-breaking new plot direction introduced? I think it'd be unprecedented if it did turn out that way.

    Fairy Tail's released once a week. We may be starting a new arc centered around a character we barely know. Or it could be something silly. Could be either or both since it is Fairy Tail.

    Negima simply sucks. It's main character sucks. It's secondary characters suck. The antagonists suck. All the girls are ugly jail bait if they're even human. Frankly they all just piss me off and disgust me in general.

    I think I'll put voting off for a week or so. See what Fairy Tail gives me. If it's not the start of a new arc, I'll vote for Claymore.

    There's one mod, that I can see, who reads it. Hopefully it'll get a nomination if it's based off what they think.

    I would've thought to nominate it because of how good its been going, thus far. No need to apologize though; it's cool. Ganta will come into his own. Just give him time.

    You aren't going to be disappointed.

    Fairy Tail, hands down. It's possibly one of my favourite manga currently. I'm not fully caught up as I wasn't aware [Blocked Domain] was carrying it until about a week ago; I think I'm around chapter 15 now? It's great though.
