  1. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 7

    Ah... finally, we can lay it to rest.
  2. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 7

    Magazines have demographics, it's a fairly simple concept. Shounen Jump is meant for a certain age of kids. What is deemed appropriate for kids is up to Shueisha, as we can clearly see from the manga...
  3. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 7

    I think they're alright, but she seems to do better with male designs by comparison.
  4. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 7

    The way they ended Kuroko was a bit abrupt. Some people I asked felt it needed at least a chapter or so of padding to close it out, which is exactly what it seems to be getting in the form of some...
  5. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 7

    I felt Haikyuu was a really well handled 25 episodes.
  6. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 7

    I'm in the camp of "please wait a little longer before declaring Hero Academy a big success."
    Heck it could very well still be a failure, it's still relatively new. I'd kinda move that sentiment...
  7. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Because I like to see new jump manga actually get translated? So I could read them?
  8. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Actually, there should be enough chapters to compile into the next volume should it choose to end at 700.
    But yeah, I guess it really is up in the air, assuming Kishimoto doesn't go insane and drag...
  9. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    I just find it odd that we'd get an epilogue to the story by way of a movie without even reaching the actual end yet.
  10. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    It's still September, how could it not end within the year (theoretically)? The movie is in the winter after all.
    If anything, the nature of the battle does mean that it's reaching its end, because...
  11. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Well, the demographic is young boys, so...

    But this does bring up the idea that there's a disparity between people who vote for series and those who actually buy the volumes. If the appeal is wide...
  12. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Ah okay, yeah I can see that. I don't think it sold terribly, it seems volumes 1 and 2 sold roughly the same but this is relative so I'm not sure how these stack against the norm.
  13. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Hm, I don't know, I mean, I think every series will have its group of people that will be disappointed when a series ends, right? Unless I'm missing something else, online reaction probably wouldn't...
  14. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    You know, considering all the talk about authors that people want to come back but haven't, maybe something like this seems like the right direction. Assuming this new project is another manga line...
  15. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    It never occurred to me that they could just continue the Naruto movies while ending the Naruto manga... sheesh...
  16. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Hm, isn't the new movie technically supposed to act as the epilogue to the series? I'd say that would make up for the manga end being short as some are fearing. (Though it would be kinda silly to...
  17. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Hm, so I just read the oneshot and I didn't like it very much, for a few of the reasons posted above. But I'm kinda interested in where the premise would go though, so I do hope there's been some...
  18. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Don't want this to devolve into studio begging/predictions since we don't even know if it's an anime yet, but anything but this. I wouldn't wish this on a manga that I really disliked.

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

    I kinda just disagree with the use/execution of the antagonist. That's what's been dragging everything down for me, so yeah, I can say the last 6-7 chapters have been rather boring, and we have at...
  20. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    People should also consider that the sensibilities in children's media in japan are a lot different than those in ours. Hell, the Kamen Rider and Sentai shows tend to have their characters bloodied...
  21. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    None of them look dark, we got a great set this time around.

    The superhero one could be interesting. Milquetoast main looks goofy enough to avoid that visual critique (for me at least).
  22. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Never read Barrage, but I did like Zoo. Hopefully we'll get this on ESJ?
  23. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    No, it's a brand new series all in its own.
  24. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    I don't think that would be much of a problem, they have enough content for perhaps a 24 episode run (big guesstimate on my part). Don't really see it going past than this election arc anyway.

    [Mag Talk] Re: Jump SQ (Shueisha)

    See, I think there's where you might be setting yourself up for disappointment. The issue here seems to be how the author is influenced from his/her own works, and I imagine it isn't so much of a...

    [Mag Talk] Re: Jump SQ (Shueisha)

    According to his interviews in one of the volumes (or maybe it was a databook, I forget), he really has taken to doing ecchi stuff. So, his next series would probably have that. With the amount of...
  27. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    ooo, now see, that's pretty neat. They should really be doing more things like this to drum up hype for the world cup rather than churn out a soccer series.
  28. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    So Murase is at it again with a oneshot this time, and based off the title it might be a sports manga, no? Can't really tell without a proper translation of it. He sure likes his sports.
  29. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    They're putting efforts into an ios app? Interesting... I do wonder how indicative this is of how they view the series.
  30. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Oh, well that's slightly better.
  31. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Wow, what a step down from the Mago covers. I guess it's still only volume 1, but it leaves much to be desired.
  32. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    I don't think you should put a lot of weight on "Final Battle" because I'm pretty sure that's what's been used to describe this arc as a whole. We've already known this was going to be the last arc,...
  33. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Oh I know, I just wanted to comment on the perception that Sharkbait brought up.
    I don't think it's something that's without merit to discuss.
  34. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    I think the premise itself kinda makes it hard to be a global hit... what with USA being rather antsy in regards to schools and violence... Of course, USA doesn't count for the whole global audience...
  35. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Remember when the whole point of Eyeshield 21 was to win the Christmas Bowl?
    Though you are right in that sense, since the World Tournament was something of a mess.
  36. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    More or less. I don't like dropping things unless I'm completely indifferent about them. In Naruto's case, I do want to find out how it'll end, especially now since it might be reaching something of...
  37. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    One Piece: Really enjoyable to read and involving. Love the world and the characters.
    Gintama: Don't read the manga, but really enjoyed the anime. The comedy clicks with me.
    Naruto: Recently...
  38. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Hm, I felt like Nemuri Netarou Awararu was kinda boring. Akira Amano's character designs seem to be hit or miss with me, I did like it in ēlDLIVE but I really don't like Nemuri's design specifically....
  39. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Ha! And who said Japan doesn't partake in April Fools day?
    Just for the record, a lot of japanese sites (game companies, anime studios, etc) tend to join in on the joke,
    so this is to be expected.
  40. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    That's an interesting thing, isn't it. It's one of the reasons I don't really care for the series, but it's also something that's somewhat of a necessity and a byproduct of extending the series. I...
  41. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    If we're arguing this, sure, Toonami's loss was not the sole reason the anime industry dipped down. However, when it died, Toonami was a shell of its former self. To be frank, anime hurt the anime...

    Space Brothers has been airing during the morning for a while, after that it moved to a different timeslot, which placed it right before Conan during the afternoon, so still a rather lucrative...
  43. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    I'm a little confused. So the actual argument here is that anime was more popular with so-called "casuals" and "mainstream" before Toonami died (even though it was probably even sooner than that)....
  44. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    It is expanding, in a sense. But I guess a better way to frame it is that anime doesn't seem to be expanding beyond its own audience, at least not as much as it used to. If you want to justify a wide...
  45. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Oh, is that one even happening? I can't really take anime/manga live action movies seriously in regards as to whether they'll even be made or not.
  46. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    It's set to premiere in July. It's also been renamed Edge of Tomorrow.
  47. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    There is most definitely a market change, though probably not as drastic as some are making it sound. It's easier to say that they just need gold to strike, but this issue won't really come into play...

    That's correct, but I don't see a problem for disliking it for being generic and repetitive though for a slightly more nuanced reason. After all, it's not exactly black and white, something can be...
