FEATURE: National High School Manga Championship of Japan 2012: Day 2

Who is the top of 296 high school manga club in Japan?

As the photos I have taken show, the majority of members of Japanese manga club who compete in the 21st National High School Manga Championship of Japan, aka Manga Koshien, are girls. There was no boys in last year's top 3 teams. I think that boys prefer to work alone than with others in a school club? So it was surprising for all that the captain of this year's champion team was a second year male student. Following the first day's report, these are the second day's photos and the winners of 2012!!
