Manga Giveaway: Shojo Beat Giveaway (Ai Ore!)

It’s the end of September, so it’s manga giveaway time! In honor of the Shojo Beat Manga Moveable Feast, which was held last week, this month I’ll be giving away a new copy of Ai Ore!, Volume 1 by Mayu Shinjo as published by Viz Media (which means it’s an omnibus!). As always, the giveaway is open worldwide!

One thing I enjoy about the Manga Moveable Feast is that I’m often exposed to manga that I haven’t read. The Shojo Beat Manga Moveable Feast was fun for me because, while I do read and have read some Shojo Beat titles, I’m not very familiar with the imprint as a whole. In addition to Ai Ore!, Viz Media publishes more than eighty different manga under the Shojo Beat imprint. Of those I’ve personally read at least part of eighteen different series but so far only four in their entirety. My personal favorite is Hinako Ashihara’s Sand Chronicles, but I’m also quite fond of Kyousuke Motomi’s Dengeki Daisy and Aya Kanno’s Otomen, among others. I’m curious to learn about other readers’ favorite Shojo Beat manga in order to discover other titles that I might be interested in reading.

So, you may be wondering, how can you win a copy of Ai Ore!, Volume 1?

1) In the comments below, tell me which Shojo Beat title is your favorite and why. (Never read any Shojo Beat manga? Simply mention that.)
2) If you’re on Twitter, you can earn a bonus entry by tweeting about the contest. Make sure to include a link to this post and @PhoenixTerran (that’s me).

There it is! For this giveaway, each person can earn up to two entries. You have one week to submit your comments. If you have trouble or if you would prefer, entries can be sent to me at phoenixterran(at)gmail(dot)com. The winner will be randomly selected and announced on October 3, 2012. Best of luck to you all!

VERY IMPORTANT: Include some way that I can contact you. This can be an e-mail address, link to your website, Twitter username, or whatever. If I can’t figure out how to contact you and you win, I’ll just draw another name.

  1. My favorite Shoujo Beat manga would have to be Skip Beat, because I just absolutely love it. It’s an exciting romance manga and I’m dying for more!! XD
    I’ve also tweeted! Username: @sailorsun98

  2. I love many Shojo Beat titles, but Skip Beat! is my favorite. My fiance also loves it.

    Instead of being heartbroken when her true love coldly tosses her aside after becoming famous, Kyoko snaps and plans to get revenge by competing against him in show biz.

    Honey and Clover is my favorite, by virtue of being the most josei of the bunch (I’ve yet to pick up NANA), though I am enjoying the political/fantasy turn Dawn of the Arcana is taking.


  4. Oooh, that’s really hard! I think either Full Moon wo Sagashite or Nana would be my favorites. Full Moon’s kinda cheesy, yeah, but it’s just so sweet and gives me the warm fuzzies. Nana because it has such a compelling story. (I hope someday it’ll start up again!)

    Tweeting @bunnycartoon! :D

    The first manga that I actually bought the full volumes for was “Baby and me”, aka “Aka-chan to Boku”, by Marimo Ragawa. I watched the Anime earlier when I was younger and loved the story. It is a heartwarming story about the daily life of two brothers who lost their mother. The anime did not cover the whole story so I knew I had to get the manga, which I found excellent.

  6. Otomen, hands down. Been faithfully following it, and it hasn’t failed to make me laugh and give me the warm fuzzies.

    The art is beautiful, if the characters are a little idealistic. But hey, shoujo. XD (There’re also practical bits, though!)

    RTed on @bythebooks. :)
