Fans help decide which shoujo get special reprints
Long-running shoujo manga magazine Nakayoshi has been celebrating its 60th anniversary with a Masterpiece General Election in which fans help decide which manga will receive special reprint editions. This started with book store ballots leading into the release of the January 2015 issue, but before it culminates in the decision's announcement in the June issue, on sale April 28th, and the summer reprints, Nakayoshi has launched a net phase for the voting.
Between January 20th and February 20th, fans who follow @nakayosi60th on Twitter and and Tweet with the masterpiece election hashtag (#なかよし名作復刻), can vote and make their case for the reprints. 30 voters will also be selected in a lottery to receive a special commemorative book mark.
