The Magademy Awards goals to precise gratitude and respect for manga characters, develop a ‘tradition of reward for characters’ that transcends the boundaries of firms and positions, and help their additional progress.
“The aim of this award is to honor the characters that give us braveness, inspiration, and richness day-after-day. Till now, there have been many awards to honor manga works, however there has by no means been an award to honor manga characters by everybody,” the BookLive press launch writes.
