NEO Awards 2013: Best Manga

Late last year, we invited you - the NEO readers - to vote on your favourite titles from 2013 for our NEO Awards, sponsored by Japan Journeys. Here are the results!

The winner of Best Manga in 2013 was Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin (Vertical). Released in the UK via Turnaround, this title was published by Vertical and revisits the seminal series in manga format. The manga was penned by Yoshikazu Yasuhiko - and who better to handle the transformation of the show from screen to page than the man who had key roles in the original series, from character design, to illustration, to layout?

"Vertical is honored to receive this accolade for Mr. Yasuhiko. We are thrilled to not only receive critical acclaim of this timeless modern classic, but knowing that it has reached so many readers after so many across the globe said it could not be done has made this recognition extra special."
Ed Chavez, Vertical
