    I think it’s kind of funny that last year’s winner of Hello Rookie and this year’s winner of Hello Rookie are both in the list for best Rookies o_o

    could have more of my bias, but list is good~

    oh, may I ask, why are some names bolded and others not?

    I enjoyed seeing The Black Skirts nominated as rookies, seeing as I had expected them to be nominated last year already (before figuring out when a year starts and ends for awards conciderations, that is).

    A fair question! I like to keep artist names in bold the first time I mention them to make them easier to spot for someone just glancing over the new posts in search of something interesting. Although it does make things look strange on lists like these…

    oh, I was talking about Guckkasten? they’ve won the 2008 EBS Hello Rookie of the Year award, I think

    btw, Black Skirt leader’s name is ‘Hyu Il'(holiday, rest day) because he was born on sunday, I just read o_o interesting, huh? *random*

    aaah~ that makes sense of course and seems to be a good tactic :)
    knowing that, it doesn’t look strange at all.
