    [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    Agreed that it's low-risk, but that's still embarrassing. Takamagahara is one of the worst new series in years.

    Blue Exorcist is some good news, though.

    I can't say I understand the confusion over Hungry Joker. No disrespect to anyone who liked it, but I found its story painfully average and its art subpar. I'm excited to read Horikoshi's new series;...
