Manga Olympics for Bloggers Poll: Round 1/Part 1


ROUND 1/PART 1 POLLS ARE NOW UP. In this post, you’ll find two polls for the Shounen/Seinen category and the Shoujo/Josei category. How exciting! There are amazing posts here, with participants really putting a lot of effort and I only say this after having read them all! I apologise for the delay for the polls to be put up, I found out later that not everyone participating received my event info email so I had to push it back a bit. Thank you so much for all your co-operation!

Do check out your peers and remember that leaving comments will also make you eligible for the comment award! You can vote for yourselves, there’s no shame in this, but do vote responsibly!

If you’re on twitter, do follow the hash-tag – #MangaMOB for any coverage and updates! If you see any errors in this post or if you’d like anything changed(such as your post preview), please contact me ASAP!

Manga Olympics for Bloggers Deadline Extension~


Hello everyone, as the post title states, we are extending the deadline extension for the event to the 7th of June. I repeat, the 7th of June. We sincerely apologise for this, especially to everyone who has promptly sent in their applications before the original deadline, even when we knew there would be a high possibility of extension.

Say what

Say what

One of the reasons for this extension is because some bloggers have expressed their interests, but are unable to make it for the previous dates. Another is because there are others who have mentioned signing up for MOB, but have yet to send in formal applications. We hope that by extending the deadline, we will be able to get more bloggers in to make this an even bigger event!

However, we assure you that this will be the one and only extension, and we will be starting the event regardless on the 10th of June. 

Please refer to the original event post here.

There is also an ongoing discussion about merging the four competitive categories into two big categories – combining shoujo/josei and shounen/seinen. We know this is blasphemous and absolutely unfair to merge but currently, applications are going mainly towards shoujo/shounen/seinen, leaving josei a very lonely category. Although there are ideas of splitting it into two groups, we still hope that this will not cause a significantly negative impact on MOB. If you have any suggestions on this, e.g. splitting to seinen/shounen/josei and shoujo instead or something, do let us know. We need all the input we can get to make MOB a memorable and fun experience!

New application date: 7th June

New starting date: 10th June

Changes TBD: The merging of the seinen and shounen categories, as well as the josei and shoujo categories. (Therefore there will be only 2 main categories for MOB)

we would never say thisWe really hope to reach out to bloggers who have already submitted their applications about this. To those who have submitted their applications and wish to withdraw from the event because of the new dates, we absolutely understand! We sincerely apologise and will respond to any questions/queries/complaints anyone might have.

Also, as we mentioned before, there are a high number of potential participants that have yet to send in their applications, so if you guys are still interested, we’ll be very happy to have you! We also ask of you guys to promote the event as much as you can because frankly, the more the merrier even though we might bash each others heads in the process! =D
