It was certainly a big night for the Manga Industry, while things were heating up during New York Comic-Con, it lead up to a monumental night at the 33rd Annual Harvey Awards.

With titles such as Asadora!, Boys Run the Riot, Remina, and SpyxFamily, it was Tatsuki Fujimoto’s Devil Hunting Chainsaw Man that took home its very first Harvey Award for Best Manga. Fujimoto provided a statement regarding the Award, sharing his excitement:

Thank you for the insanely awesome award! It’s the best award of any awards that exist in America! I consider this crude manga of mine unbefitting of any award, but I plan to continue packing it full of all the things that I love.

If you ever happen to be handing out awards again, hit me up! Thank you very much!

Thank you so much for this wonderful award. I am so honored the American readers have enjoyed my work. Through the medium of manga, I am so happy I am able to communicate with all of you. The world is in hardship due to COVID, but I hope my manga can provide some support.”
