The creators commented on their wins.

Rumiko Takahashi’s comment:
Chainsaw Man was up against the tough crowd of Asadora! by Naoki Urasawa, Boys Run the Riot by Keito Gaku, Remina by Junji Ito, and Spy x Family by Tatsuya Endo for the Best Manga award, with all of them great picks that would be deserving of the award.
