Because the results from the initial voting process for the Series of the Month were inconclusive, we'll have a final vote between the series that tied for first place. They were:


Gintama

The story focuses on an eccentric samurai, Gintoki Sakata, his (partial) apprentice Shinpachi Shimura, and a teenage alien girl who's from one of the strongest races in existence: yato. All three are "freelancers" known as the Yorozuya. They search for work in order to pay the monthly rent, which usually goes unpaid anyway. The story takes place in the Edo Period, but instead of the Europeans invading in the late 1860s they are invaded by aliens, which they call Amanto.The blend of comedic and serious arcs along with heavy doses of genre deconstruction, lovable characters, and the author's penchant for bringing the mundane into the realms of insanity makes this a highly addictive, MUST-read.


Kingdom

Millions of years have passed since the times of legends, when the worlds of man and gods were still the same. In these times it was the desires of man that moved the world. It is the era of the 500 year war: The warring states peroid. Kingdom is the story of a young boy named Xin who grew into a great general and all the trials and bloodshed that lead him there.

Meh, I'd rather we had a section for a new and fresh series, but at least it's better than lolbleach section. Who the hell voted for that garbage? :mihawk

It doesn't really matter to me, I flipped a coin to decide which one to vote for.

I'll just start reading whichever one wins

A thorn in my side even after quitting the Contributor post. What a prick. :pek

Yeah, it's good if people pick up whichever one wins. I think Kingdom, Gintama and Nanatsu no Taizai are likely to be the next 3 Series' of the Month anyway.

I don't follow either, so don't expect much activity from me in the section.

One of the main points of the Series of The Month is for members to discover good series' they don't usually follow, BD. Pick the winner up and give it a try.
