A Silent Voice by OIMA Yoshitoki was the only manga with a license in the US to win at the 19th Annual Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize ceremony. It won in the New Creator Prize category. The manga series is rare story about boy meets deaf girl. A Silent Voice is licensed by Kodansha USA. Back issues can be read on Crunchyroll with a subscription.
This is an excellent series, and I am looking forward to owning physical copies when Kodansha USA starts releasing the volumes in May.
Other licensed series up for consideration for a prize were Naruto and Assassination Classroom. The full list of winners can be read on ANN.
