  • This year’s Manga Taisho (Cartoon Grand Prize) results were announced at a ceremony in Tokyo yesterday. Akimi Yoshida’s Umimachi Diary took the prize. Yoshida launched the manga in Shogakukan’s Monthly Flowers magazine in 2006. The manga follows three sisters who live in the seaside city of Kamakura. They learn of the death of their father, years after he divorced their mother and left the family. At their father's funeral, they meet their half-sister for the first time.

    Yoshida thanked everyone for the award this year. She drew the following illustration upon receiving the award:
