As the year winds down, it is time manga readers took time to look back at their favorite titles of 2018. Week after week, the year rang in thousands of chapters of content, but only one can take home the honor winning a Golden Issue award.

After plenty of debate, out voting poll has spoken. There were a number of significant manga to choose from, but only one could win.

And the winner of Best Manga is...


Hunter x Hunter!

Despite having been on hiatus for much of its publication, Hunter x Hunter remains a shonen gem. The action-packed title follows the life of Gon Freecs as the works to become a truly infamous Hunter like his father, but even his best-laid plans tend to go awry.
