Manga Giveaway: Kuroko’s Basketball Giveaway Winner

Kuroko's Basketball, Omnibus 1And the winner of the Kuroko’s Basketball manga giveaway is… Coco!

As the winner, Coco will be receiving a copy of the first Kuroko’s Basketball omnibus, created by Tadatoshi Fujimaki and published in English by Viz Media. Tournaments often play a large part in sports manga like Kuroko’s Basketball but they can also be incorporated into other genres in interesting ways, too. For this giveaway, I asked that participants tell me a little about their favorite tournament manga. I’ve collected some of the responses in the list below (combined with some additional titles), but be sure to check out the giveaway comments for all of the detailed replies.
