Jumpcast: Manga of the Year 2014 (Part 1)

It's that time again!

It's the third annual Manga of the Year awards!  This year, the entire crew of Jumpcast regulars gets together to gab about what worked this year, what didn't, and genuinely put a surprising amount of consideration and time into really silly categories.  Here's what's decided this week:

  • Best New Character of the Year
  • Best New Series
  • Best Mustache-Twirling/Villain Moment (The Handlebar Award)
  • Best Face
  • Most Contrived Chapter of Nisekoi
  • Best Metaphor
  • Worst Metaphor
  • Best Dimension
  • Coolest Attack/Most Badass Panel
  • Best Arm-Cut
  • Most Depressing
  • Soma Dish We'd Most Like to Eat
  • Best Color Page/2-Page Spread
  • Best Disguise
  • Best Arc of the Year

And this is only Part 1!  We'll be back next week to finish it off and proclaim what the best manga of the year is, so make sure to tune back in for that.
