the Tsugi ni Kuru Manga Taisho, also known as Next manga award, is an annual award from the magazine Da Vinci from the publisher Kadokawa in cooperation with the Japanese service Niconico. The award is divided into two categories: one for printed covers and one for digitally serialized covers. For a work to be eligible, fewer than five compilation volumes must have been published prior to being nominated, and the final decision rests with the fan voting. In the end, this event honors the most promising new manga works of the year.
