  1. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 2

    I think it may sound simple but its obvious partially: in the West, Japanese things are just more exotic and interesting. That pretty much explains Naruto and Bleach (and stuff like Kenshin) in a...
  2. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 2

    I've been really out of it for a while, basically only read a few things on Mangareader anymore being so out of the manga scene. (in regards to manga/anime, I'm only now getting more interested in OP...

    Re: StrangerAtaru's Thread of...Stuff

    I'm just so shocked how many people want me to do KochiKame lately; I wish I could if I had the time but sometimes life just gets in the way. (well that...and I really, really want to finish Nube...

    Re: StrangerAtaru's Thread of...Stuff

    KochiKame was mostly just a thing I wanted to try out. I was hoping to go back and forth between that and another series but it didn't work: it ruined my flow. With how massive KochiKame is, I just...
  5. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    Viz's idea of a web-based nearly close to the magazine Jump isn't too bad an idea...too bad it just feels like it's coming way too late in the game. I agree with the whole lack of Gintama that was...
  6. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    Been a weird few days preventing me from commenting...but Sket getting first is a nice surprise. Been a while since a pure gag series has taken tops, so congrats to it. And...yeah, Enigma did make...
  7. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    Pretty good ToC this week in my head. I don't mind Bleach being a more "middling" series actually considering it just feels right there. That way it isn't in the top and it won't piss off it's fans...
  8. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    Happy for the new anime: Medaka is long overdue and Kuroko...well Jump got a sports series to the anime, so at least it can finally be quiet for a while about trying to keep one in the magazine.
    ...
  9. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    Wow, a Wingman pic by Oda? Great he remembered that series...any other pics from that?

    (sorry I'm so behind on this...)
  10. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    Interesting ToC, mostly because of the performance of Harusegawa and moreso of the sudden boost for Kuroko. Otherwise, not really too much to say other than...well, I sort of hope Oda starts moving...
  11. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    Harusagawa doing so well...it really doesn't surprise me probably due to two factors: no real romance manga in the magazine currently and Kano's track record. (starting strong then collapsing later;...
  12. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    I know that Bleach sadly will never stay in the bottom five but...I sort of hope it stays middling at least for the rest of it's run. That's enough to keep it going to please the fans but not strong...
  13. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    Interesting bottom five, though it's a shame for fans of Enigma that it may not past a year, probably ending up something like P2 (making a year then taking a bow) At least it made it that far even...
  14. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    Pretty good week: Bleach going up sadly was expected...but it's still bottom five so the readers still have some sense. Admittedly though I do like the readers do actually want change: outside...
  15. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    Interesting rankings, not much more really to say. Sad to see Ikkyu go though but unfortunately we're rather stuffed in the magazine as of late...
  16. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    Interesting week regardless. Personally really feel out of it with the magazine as of late (I feel like I know so little and yet I'm one of the older people here), but i'll just nod and shake my...
  17. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    This isn't the same time as Toriko. Toriko is on at 9:00 AM, while HxH will be on close to 11. So I don't see any problem.
  18. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    Personally I would make Bleach the SQ series, but it will be Mago. In Mago's case, it still has sales support but just not the popularity to sustain itself in magazine. Bleach just needs something...
  19. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    Interesting week with KochiKame taking the cover and a reasonable top this time around. Enigma not making the bottom five is pretty good, Bleach being closer to death with the newer series...
  20. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    Somehow with the stories I've heard of "Shingeki no Kyojin" originally being offered to them and their screw-up of turning it down, I wouldn't be surprised of Shueisha goes after that next. (or is...
  21. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    Weird week with OP out and Naruto color. Toriko taking first sort of feels expected by this point strangely though, with Sket being in 2nd really showing it's recent strength since the start of it's...
  22. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    About those who said Bleach doesn't deserve a color this week: it's the 10th anniversary, so humor it. Most of the time there is a color page for the anniversary...sure for a while some series...
  23. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    There are quite a few times that a couple early colors show up for a new series.

    I saw a bit of conversation about the "Golden Age" of Jump, and I sort of have to agree with "Ring ni Kakero" being...
  24. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    I'm not writing an obituary but the path Bleach has taken as of late just feels like what has happened with Bo-bobo. Speaking from my experiences with Bo-bobo, Sawai did what he could in order to...
  25. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    Not necessarily. If the series does remain down for a while, Jump will force Bleach to end regardless of whether it's a good ending or a bad ending.

    And while I feel like I'm being ganged up on...
  26. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    But how long are readers willing to give Kubo the shadow of the doubt? Even if a popular character returns, it doesn't guarantee anything. If everything just collapses and the readers don't give...
  27. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    I really hate to say this but I really do have to bring Bo-bobo back into the equation when talking about Bleach's current position. Sawai pulled something similar to what Kubo just did in his...
  28. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    Bleach still has Shueisha's support but...one wonders how long it will last. Remember: when a popular series collapses, the magazine still semi-supports it for all the years it gave before it starts...
  29. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    Why do people think Bleach will come back stronger? Remember: just because a series is collapsing doesn't necessarily mean that it's going to recover. I'm saying that because something in my head...
  30. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    It looks like the KochiKame anniversary this year will have a special KochiKame chapter (most likely by Akimoto) in 13 different Shueisha mags, starting with Ribon. Interesting considering what OP...
  31. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    I know that was how "Busou Renkin" ended, but that was Watsuki and he already had a reputation to get something like that. (then there's Shaman King...but that was a weird scenario in itself)

    A...
  32. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    That was Kubo's words. He also admitted the Arrancar stuff went on way longer than expected because of their popularity. (and Kubo's slowness but let's leave that be)
  33. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    I think someone else may have made the Saint Seiya comparison before but it is valid. Considering how similar both the Soul Society (yeah, two Ss...coincidental I notice) and the Gold Saint arcs...
  34. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    I mostly just stick with older Jump with my translations. I've done most of Kinnikuman (well aside from what was already done...I need to do my own version of the chapters I didn't do someday), two...
  35. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    You really shouldn't say that about KochiKame. It does have noteriety...well in Japan and it really can't be compared to anything else in the magazine since it's essentially from another age where...
  36. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    I did notice Toriko getting color means essentially the next OP/Toriko "showdown" is held off for another week for those interested...otherwise, the fact that Bleach is below even Reborn shows it's...
  37. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    I think that the Medaka spoiler-provider just likes it's sudden improvement, but I guess that anyone who wants to show off would do that.

    And I don't get why people want to see OP's proper rank...
  38. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    That's a hilarious cover...somehow I just like the "scoops" of his friends like they're anthromorphized food.
  39. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    Considering Naruto really is in no danger, I don't get why people are so worried when it's in merely 3rd. It's still respectable and, even with it's bad times, at least Kishimoto is getting closer...
  40. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    Unfortunately Oda has a tendency to take breaks every once in a while but he deserves them, what with his wife and family plus all the research and special stuff he has to do for this massive...
  41. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    As a former poster of that LJ (sort of fell out of interest when this page got all the TOCs first I admit), I too admit that it is a great one that has a great archive regarding the history of the...
  42. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    Regarding my comment: my comment about fanservice has nothing to do with the plot or foreshadowing. It's merely that certain characters lead to more votes and notice for a series than others, even...
  43. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    I really don't get why people have to celebrate OP not being in first, the flashback has had it's moments but a lot of series tend to do as such and there are always ups and downs in the magazine...
  44. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    All we know is unless there are now Fishmen in Sket Dance, it probably is OP.
  45. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    (joking) OK, who decided to give Naruto and Piccolo their own manga? (end joke)

    We'll see considering how full the magazine is. Obviously with as many successful series in it now, it does feel...
  46. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    I always thought Nube had a great ending, but that was a unique situation: the mangaka essentially said later they did the stories they wanted to early on and essentially tied up some loose ends when...
  47. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    The problem with super long series, particularly ones with certain plot obligations, is trying to convince the mangaka it is time to let go or move forwards towards an "end". Its that sort of thing...
  48. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    Death Note was pre-"low period". It premiered before Gintama for one thing. For the most part I say the "low period" was essentially from about the end of 2004 (about Muhyo's start) to the end of...
  49. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    Regarding Bleach: it's still a middling series so it really isn't in any danger as of yet. Yeah, I don't mind it having middling results as sort of a wake-up call to Kubo (wish it would go lower but...
  50. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2011] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    I really liked that cover for KochiKame...then again I think it also just gives off a bit of a "comedy vibe" with the characters celebrating Ryotsu. (then again Toriko is more or less action with...
