hm, I've read both recently and I'd say that I enjoyed more of Slam Dunk than Kuroko, but I haven't finished/caught up with either yet. I will say though, Slam Dunk has had much greater cultural...

Ask me again in a month or two' After all, it's only one chapter.
That said though, while I won't comment on its survivability yet, it does seem pretty neat.
February 25, 2014 01:14 PM
If we think about something that would entice readers... I think having the latest chapter is important. See what they did with Nisekoi? I suppose that's a case of something that can be dealt with...

So far one part of my prediction seems to be on the mark, they are adding the guy alongside with the girl. Can't wait to see how it turns out.
February 12, 2014 09:57 PM
See, that's the weird thing, because the oneshot of Stealth Symphony was completely different from what the pic implies, as the main character was actually female and there was no male mc character...
February 12, 2014 07:53 PM
ooo Sousei ranked 11 for its first volume. Nice!
February 12, 2014 10:57 AM
Right, and actually, I'm not so much arguing against what happened, but just how we're categorizing this practice.
February 12, 2014 10:36 AM
This is the main sticking point for me. I understand that it was going to end soon, that was unavoidable, but the manner in which it is ending just seems rather slapdash. I mean, I know it's no...
February 12, 2014 08:16 AM
The colour doesn't really... say anything in regards to that? It doesn't change how rushed the final act was, along with evidence that it hss been ranking horribly lately, implying that this must...
February 08, 2014 06:27 PM
Maybe we'll just get an artbook or drama cd or something.
February 07, 2014 08:36 PM
Well that's probably because Kawashita might be contributing less aside from just doing the art in Te to Kuchi. Seeing as the writer does light novels, I'd imagine there's less collaboration on that...
February 07, 2014 07:53 PM
From interviews, it is somewhat apparent that they both have input on the story, so it's not too surprising.
February 04, 2014 03:25 PM
But I don't think they're trying to play "me too" with this series. I mean, honestly, we don't even know how "dark" this series actually is. But also, playing the game of trying to capture markets...
February 04, 2014 03:15 PM
Other magazines have darkish series, so it makes sense that they would want to try making their own. It's that simple. I don't think they're going to stop if they feel they can get good ideas out of...
February 04, 2014 02:46 PM
Can't say I agree with that 100%.
Anyway, I won't disagree with the sentiment that a "dark" series would have a harder time appealing to kids, assuming we're expecting this to be a generic "dark...
February 01, 2014 10:45 PM
While that is true, Medaka Box was also not a very good ranking series. I think having a famous writer onboard probably secures the series from any early cancellations, but that's just me making...
January 28, 2014 12:05 AM
The funny part is the series could easily be canceled before the World Cup even begins. Which makes it a bit weird that they start it now if they really wanted to ride the hype. Seems a bit early,...
January 27, 2014 11:53 PM
No harm in trying to ride the hype. Here's hoping it actually works this time. Really interested in seeing Stealth Symphony.
Slightly curious about Ai Shoujo, mainly because it seems like such a...
January 27, 2014 07:16 AM
I wouldn't really say "original" yet (I haven't really done the research to find other manga in the ukiyo-e style in the modern age)... but that's a whole different kettle of fish. It's certainly a...
January 24, 2014 05:23 PM
It's not exactly a "Jump" thing, as much as it's just a different label with looser standards when it comes to that kinda thing. SQ gets away with much more than WSJ, but that's also the point.
January 20, 2014 11:48 PM
Another Namco Bandai joint eh? I mean, Namco Bandai somehow managed to get Project X Zone released out here for the 3DS which also had multiple IPs (granted, this is anime so it might just be more...
January 16, 2014 11:57 PM
I predict that Beelzebub's recent pace is something of a red herring, I don't think it's going to end so quickly, so I don't see it ending in the next round. However, I would say that its weeks are...
January 14, 2014 12:45 PM
Perhaps, but hasn't he already been on multiple hiatuses before anyway? This probably wouldn't even the longest one, so what's to say this time will be any different?
January 14, 2014 02:11 AM
Not a good sign for these new series huh...
January 08, 2014 06:08 PM
That doesn't sound like a bad thing. Beelzebub, while a good series, can't possibly run too much longer without being stretched too thin. This feels fine.
November 06, 2013 11:31 AM
Ultimo is currently running on SQ.19, if I recall.
October 23, 2013 08:53 PM
I wouldn't take the fact that scanlators don't pick something up as a sign of quality, or lack thereof in this case.
October 16, 2013 10:46 AM
Somewhat disappointed by the J-Stars announcement. Lala cheers? They couldn't be a little more creative with that? Like... you know... have her use an invention or something... Really crossing my...
September 10, 2013 09:20 PM
I kinda hope the announcement is Warner Bros.'s live-action adaption of Bleach,
but the twist is, they adapt this final arc. That'd be pretty fun. Kills two birds with one stone.
Though I do kinda...
September 10, 2013 04:42 AM
Yes, it was actually released in the final chapter too, so all things considered, a popularity poll isn't some kind of protection from cancellation. Though, I don't really know enough about the...
September 09, 2013 11:16 PM
So soon? Might Oda still be recovering? Either way, well wishes to him.
September 04, 2013 06:51 AM
Ah I see now. So that's Koi no Cupid... that's certainly something.
September 04, 2013 06:31 AM
So Nishi's coming back with another series, huh. And yeah, shame Smoky B.B. got the ax, though I kinda expected it. And Tomohiro Hasegawa, checking online it seems he did that oneshot Goblin Night?...
