  1. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    those who have read yoakemono, does it bring forth any comparisons to one piece? i remember when the one shot first came out in jump vs there was some criticism over its similarity to the first...
  2. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012-2013] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    I guess it did have somewhat of an online presence. Originally I would have told you that online fanbases are of no importance to Jump, but seeing as this is a whole new project there is very little...
  3. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012-2013] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    Hmm... it seems kind of weird to me that Jump would wanna bring back Kiruko.

    [Shounen] Re: Mutou Black by Nonoue Daijirou

    First chapter looked great, story-wise though I wasn't too crazy about it. As it's been mentioned it was just a pretty predictable first chapter full of stuff that's been done before. That being said...

    [Shounen] Re: [New] Soul Catcher(S) by Shinkai Hideo

    I've been excited about this for a while, I've always wanted to see how a Jump music series would turn out. That being said I wasn't too big on the initial chapter, the whole thing just seemed way to...

    An issue tends to be about 500 pages. The magazine opens up with some color pages regarding merchandise (video games, card games, tankobons) this also includes Jump SQ series. They also have some...
  9. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012-2013] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    I recall us regularly getting the issue after a double issue a week early, I think it had something to do with it going to press early to make sure there were no delays or something.
  10. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012-2013] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 4

    Reprints huh? Anybody know how many volumes HJ and Kiruko have sold?
  11. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012-2013] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 4

    Yeah he was responding to a question I made about some guy who was spreading erroneous info. I knew hj wasn't ending but I asked here in case I had missed some info.
  12. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012-2013] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 4

    Some guy on a manga site keeps telling people that Hungry Joker ended with chapter 20, I'm more than sure he's wrong. There's no info that would support that right?
  13. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012-2013] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 4

    I thought the same thing too because of mangaupdates, guess they got the names mixed up.

    Baka lists it as being published in 2011

  15. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012-2013] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 4

    That oneshot is actually from 2011.
  16. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012-2013] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 4

    I'm backing that Stealth Symphony request.
  17. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012-2013] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 4

    Zero, judging from what you've seen on 2ch do you have an idea of what the oneshots are about? I bought my issue but even then I won't really be able to tell what the oneshots are about.
  18. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012-2013] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 4

    Yes. You can order off Kinokuniya or Yesasia, and I'm sure there are other online retailers that carry it.
  19. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012-2013] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 4

    I do think it should be noted that Jump isn't necessarily cancelling 3 series in their upcoming cancellation process, there's a good chance they'll premiere 2 series and get rid of 2. So even with...
  20. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012-2013] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 4

    Oh damn thanks, I really thought that was a Takeshi Obata oneshot, that picture just kind of reminded me of his art.
  21. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012-2013] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 4

    Really want to pick that up, will totally have to order if off Kunikunya. Don't know how to that too well though since stuff like this tends to not be listed on the site, anybody want to let me know...
  22. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012-2013] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 4

    I'm still a bit doubtful of this whole "hungry joker at the bottom" business. Does Jump ever actually place a low-ranking series that high up for 3 consecutive weeeks? If so, why are they doing it...
  23. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012-2013] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 4

    Wait so Hungry Joker placed last on the questionnaires, but ranked out the bottom 5 in the ToC? Is that Jump just trying to promote it?

    Don't really mind seeing Kurogane go. It's a shame we never...

    As I expected, I like this for its theme (cooking) but I'm not too sold on the execution. Wasn't big on the ecchi or the quick pacing, it made the first chapter seem somewhat convoluted. I do wanna...
  27. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 4

    Nice to see AC continue to destroy the rankings, not pleased about how low Haikyuu!! is. Although I don't particularly dislike Medaka Box and Kurogane I honestly wouldn't mind seeing them go.

    [Shounen] Re: [New] Hungry Joker by Tabata Yuuki

  30. [Shounen] Re: [New] Shinmai Fukei Kiruko-san by HIRAKATA Masahiro

  32. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 4

    Maybe he's getting his series pushed to the back and becoming unranked, kind of how Jaguar was during its run, which I think makes its immune to cancellation.
  33. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 4

    Past year as in September 2011 on. And as k-dom said, no matter what highly succesful means to you there's no denying that Nisekoi, HQ, Psi Kuso Saiki and Assassination Classroom have been highly...
  34. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 4

    You gotta be kidding. In the past year they've serialized 4 highly successful new series.
  35. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    But they're dangerously close to cancellation. We also shouldn't rule out the idea that Jump may cancel Takamagahara quicker than expected and add one new series. I remember that happened last year...
  36. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    I imagine, regardless his comment is wrong.
  37. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    No, they've ended 2.
  38. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    Yes! So excited for Cross Manage, that oneshot was too good. Would also love to read Date-senpai, but with the track record gag series have with scanlations I'd say the odds of me ever being able to...
  39. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    As much as I loved Enigma, an anime adaptation is such a far-fetched idea at its point. Same goes for Psyren.

    That could also be used in favor of siding with the teacher. So far the only one who has really accepted them is the teacher.
  43. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    I find it strange that people are still looking at high pre-ranking placement as a sign of popularity, shouldn't the Bulge rankings be somewhat of a confirmation that it doesn't really make a...
  44. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    Man I did not see that coming, I mean I saw it was dropping, but I didn't think it would reach the bottom. Koisome also dropped pretty low, at this rate Pajama could survive a bit more.
