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

    I like how they filtered out their respective partners: the writers, both of whom were terrible. The writer of the former didn't learn from the big blunder of his first series, while the latter flat...
  2. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    With this many series keeping a solid position in the magazine, this rule is getting less worthy of discussion by the day.

    These days, it's either you get that solid position right away, as seen...
  3. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    That looks about right for numerous cases, but whatever you do, don't treat it like it's set in stone. You could have something like AC when it first shot up on the ToC less than 8 weeks in, or, on...
  4. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Wow, it's actually matching AC levels of popularity? I guess they're really into whatever Kawada's drawing.

    Unless someone picks up this series ASAP, I can imagine Western audiences are going to...
  5. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    It's proofreading time!



    There, much better.
  6. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    You and your rapid fire replies. I haven't finished editing my comment yet. >.<

    Of course it's not, but along with the story, which most of us can't even judge yet, it's definitely a major...
  7. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Having not read Bulge in the last <2 years, I take a peek at the first few pages and immediately I recognize the art as very closely resembling Bulge's. Heck, you could take the main character's pose...
  8. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    There's no comparison between SS and D. Grayman, the only series ever to have been transferred to SQ. SQ is an established magazine by itself and has been for several years now, not a recent startup...
  9. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Couldn't tell, since he listed a specific magazine.
  10. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Source or it didn't happen.
  11. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Exactly. It's just about his last chance at this point. And it's also likely going to be his best.

    I guess it's not so bad for iShojo, if it's part of this ongoing trend of series moving from the...
  12. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    I sure hope BHA does well; if there's one highly successful work to come out of Horikoshi, it's got to be this one.

    Didn't iShojo have a real life app? So much for that promotion.
  13. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    That's exactly what I was thinking too. In fact, I cited World Trigger as the opposite of Bulge because of the contrast in timeframe. But now Horikoshi himself manages to make his own series that...
  14. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    As much as Sensei no Bulge had been such a flop, it was also given very little time (~1 year) from oneshot to serialization for Horikoshi to sort out any kinks, so it's actually a pleasant surprise...
  15. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Can I have some of your jelly right there?

    Best of luck to the Dois Sol author.
  16. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    I have a feeling it'll be hard to tell which images of WT belong to the manga and which belong to the anime, screenshots and black and white pages aside.



    I don't know if a new volume really...
  17. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    More room for oneshots! I mean, if HxH and OP are both to appear in this upcoming issue anyways, why not use the spare slot OP will leave behind?
  18. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    I sure can't wait for Tokyo Wonder Boys to come out. The greatest series in the history of Jump doesn't need something so frivolous as a second volume.
  19. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    I think everyone who thinks WT is getting an anime at this point should calm down... sort of. I definitely wouldn't be anticipating a whole series, but I could see another VOMIC or even an OVA happen...
  20. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    It ranked 4th behind 1st place Erabarezaru-sha (seen here in the lower right corner, Ultraman, and Ready Justice in 3rd (seen in the upper left corner).

    Here are the rankings I was talking about....
  21. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    The sumo manga was bound to get serialized anyways.

    Also, spoiler alert: expect to see Fujimi Killers and Bochikuro coming soon to WSJ.

    The thing is, there have been rankings (not sure if...
  22. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    I see. Quite a recipe for disaster there. When I said "in between", I certainly wasn't thinking just ten weeks after Mr. Fullswing ended.
  23. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Kurogane the kendo series lasted a year. I don't think they're necessarily that unfashionable.
  24. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Smoky B.B. started just about a year ago. It sucked, though that might just be because of how ridiculously incompetent the writer is. But the previous baseball manga was Mr. Fullswing, which ran from...
  25. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Agreed. Ultimately, the main focus for Jump editors is on experimental manga, some of which has paid off, like Nisekoi, AC, Soma and Isobe, and others which haven't as much, such as iShojo and...
  26. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Exactly. Look at the bright side, SharkBait. At least the CPs might not mean so much anyways.
  27. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Haha, sure. Keep those negative vibes going, buddy, not that you can probably even read the series beyond the first four chapters.



    Tokyo Wonder Bonkers and the great Smoky B.B.Q. Need I say...
  28. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    As a reference, Hinomaru Zumo started off as a oneshot from the Spring 2013 issue of Jump NEXT, the same issue that included Keitai Shojo, iShojo's precursor oneshot, and Tadahiro Miura's High Spec...
  29. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Looks like it's only partially right. Stealth Symphony is still at the bottom, but WT is 6th from the bottom.
  30. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    And so concludes my dealings with Stealth Symphony. Can't wait for the next serialization round. Maybe this time I'll see someone I liked.
  31. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    The problem is that the hardcore pro-Stealth Symphonites are expressing opinions that don't provide any objectivity, any unique and valid reason why an average reason should like this series.

    You...
  32. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    The bloodshed starts now.
  33. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    I keep forgetting that one. Same goes for Ichigo 100%. But those were many years ago. It sure doesn't look like we'd had as much a Barrage ever in WSJ history. Chalk up Illegal Rare on the list...
  34. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    What other reason is there to arbitrarily dismiss the spoilers at this point?
  35. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    And hey, what about that Psyren author, Toshiaki Iwashiro?

    I'm under the belief that the editors have a bias to allow authors of more recent, failed series to return rather than those of less...
  36. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    On the other hand, from that same issue of NEXT came Soul Catcher(s), and of all series, Tokyo Wonder Boys, hence my super jealousy.
  37. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Kenji Sakaki and Sho Aimoto. For all the years I've been waiting for their return, I didn't want to repeat it so often and boisterously lest the public start hating them for whatever little they've...
  38. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Exactly. The more you try you deny Stealth Symphony's inevitable doom, and the more you refuse to take "no" as an answer for whether the series will survive or not, the more hate you'll fuel for the...
  39. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Yeah, hoping SS will survive at this point is like... me wishing K.S. or S.A. would return to Jump; you have to restrain yourself better whenever stuff doesn't work your way.
  40. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    I guess the gimmick of TWB was just the fact that the FIFA World Cup was coming up, also because it's probably the first manga to be done completely by anime staff, written by a screenwriter and...
  41. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    I just realized TWB was first published as a oneshot in the Autumn 2012 issue of Jump NEXT alongside Soul Catcher(s) and Kenji Sakaki's Paradise Rule. As for Stealth Symphony, it was first published...
  42. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    We're really starting to get a lot of oneshots lately too. I really wonder when the next serialization round is coming up.
  43. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Man, I wish the ToC would just stabilize the ranking of the bottom series week by week. Soul Catcher(s) and Illegal Rare won't stop jolting up and down.

    It's absolutely safe to say TWB has no...
  44. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    I come back online after a quick peek this morning to find so many new posts and wondered what happened. Now I want to join in the fun.

    I actually don't read a lot of WSJ series, and I've lost...
  45. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    I guess you could consider me one of the people who thought iShojo was most doomed before chapter 1, but that was before we could even read the series, and I only made a prediction for fun at the...
  46. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    I was thinking the same thing too with Illegal Rare, given how it's performed these past few weeks. Yeah, I'm taking it back. Illegal Rare is definitely safer than a good number of series.

    I...
  47. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Some people are going to be very upset at this week's ToC.

    As for Illegal Rare, considering it's still not too far away from the bottom, the fact that it's the top among the four new series isn't...
  48. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    For a typical series to get an anime, at the very, VERY least, the manga would have to run for about two years. If Soul Catcher(s) is barely surviving by the time it finishes its first year, the...
  49. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Thanks for proving my point. :XD
  50. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    I've seen a few people on other forums who actually like the series. You don't even have to see for yourself to know that there will be fans and haters of every work in every form of media.

    A...
