ah, thanks for the context.
well re the Hoop Men vs Kuroko thing... I think Jump just likes to experiment. Perhaps they were trying to go after the female readers with a stereotypical romance and...
October 28, 2011 03:45 AM
My memory ain't what it used to be... what happened with Hoop Men?
and how is this related to Nisekoi vs Kagami?
October 27, 2011 09:12 PM
I wonder if there'll be any scenario/character changes from the one-shot. I hope not... I quite like the way it is now.
I suspect it's meant to replace Kagami.

There've been two BR novels written by Watsuki's girlfriend Kurosaki Kaori too. I think DA definitely would work better as a novel... it seems that Oba was indeed making a pointed reference to Double...
February 18, 2009 08:17 PM
Well...One I can think of, offhand, is Watsuki Nobuhiro, who has been adding bits and pieces on to Busou Renkin after its cancellation. Then again it's Watsuki Nobuhiro ... but Komi-sensei has the...
February 18, 2009 09:52 AM
Playing the devil's advocate (I always seem to be on the side of the evil:XD) - I think it's finished in the sense that Komi-sensei basically gave away the ending. If he ever does pick it up again,...
February 17, 2009 08:35 AM
Yeah, all stalker-like:XD
Farran's flag otaku side is lovable, but I wonder if there's something behind it... like maybe he didn't have much of a childhood and he's making up for lost time.
February 16, 2009 07:01 AM
and because I'm slightly made of fail:
Double Arts omake 3 scanlation - finally!
Does not include the covers or Rough Sketch collection because I'm well, made of fail. Hope to have those done...
February 15, 2009 01:15 AM
Nothing's lost forever on the Internets.;)
It's the last cache from Feb 6, so that's probably as updated as it is. It may require some copy & paste but probably the...
February 14, 2009 09:09 PM
just got the computer that my raw WIPs were on up and running again (gar, Intel Inside. GAR.) so will be getting back on work on them.
Is is possible to retrieve the Wiki page info anywhere?...
January 07, 2009 07:47 AM
aw, yeah. I see what you mean. Still... the fact that one exists at all is pretty encouraging:XD
January 07, 2009 01:50 AM
ooh, who? I checked on Y!J after Comiket and couldn't find any, but it might have been too soon.
January 06, 2009 07:57 PM
I have the vol3 omake scanned and cleaned - just waiting for my translator to finish his part.
January 04, 2009 05:27 AM
Awesome. PM me the details. I've already got the omake pages for vols 1-3 done, so that saves some work...
...um, Kiri's not swearing like a sailor in your new translation, is he?=.=;
January 03, 2009 08:34 PM
From what I've been able to find out, Tokyopop is the furthest ahead of anybody.
As for getting the bilingual editions, you should be able to order them through Kinokuniya, but as I mentioned,...
January 03, 2009 10:02 AM
I'd be interested. Got scans?:3
December 31, 2008 07:00 AM
Ah, sorry, the bilingual editions only go up to Amakusa Treasure Hunt （Treasure Isle in TokyoPop I think?) so far. With the English licensor so far ahead already, Kodansha may see no point in...
December 30, 2008 08:06 AM
I agree that Komi-sensei's works are a breath of fresh air... for Jump. But I sometimes feel let down by the resolutions of his one-shots - the happy endings feel a bit contrived. It's not that I...
December 30, 2008 07:07 AM
Kindaichi's actually one of those rare series that is available as a bilingual edition, published by Kodansha. They're worth looking out for. I saw them in Singapore's Kinokuniya this past weekend.
December 29, 2008 05:49 AM
I'm curious if there were any DA doujinshi at Winter Comiket this year...
December 24, 2008 12:55 AM
Well, after reading the translation ...I take back what I said about its series potential, this one could definitely go to series with a few changes. Satoshi kind of reminds me a bit of Muddy...
December 23, 2008 08:34 AM
I've already passed a scan of Apple to the translator I usually work with on DA stuff, but the more translations the merrier I always say~
I've uploaded an LQ/MQ scan but I couldn't get some of...
December 23, 2008 12:55 AM
LOL omg the memories:rofl
I've already mentioned Williams to the translator I'm working with for Apple, we'll see if he has time to take it on.:) I scanned Apple last night, but my scanner kind...
December 22, 2008 10:22 AM
My money's on Buzz operating on himself. I wonder if there'll be dingoes watching.
December 22, 2008 12:34 AM
Yeah it is. Last time I checked there aren't any scanlations yet, but maybe there's a translation? (peeks at kirimi:3)
December 22, 2008 12:19 AM
yeah, definitely a guy. In some panels he looks like an older version of Kiri. All the main characters in this story are male actually - there's only one woman who appears in a few panels, and she...
December 21, 2008 10:53 AM
Very quick summary because I have to get back to work:
The main character (the blond ponytailed guy - yeah, guy) is Aramiya Satoshi, who main ability is shapeshifting into any animal ...though at a...
December 20, 2008 07:39 PM
Forgot to post these here... *IS SHOT AGAIN*
I scanned the vol 3 "Rough Sketch Collection" at the wrong settings (Komi-sensei's precious handwritten notes got leveled out) I don't have time to...
December 19, 2008 09:06 PM
Totally off topic but to answer the question (and hey it has Double Arts on it:XD) Here's a scan of a weekly "anket" card that I had lying around. It's from the 37-38 issue in which Bakuman...
December 19, 2008 09:07 AM
I might get shot for this but I also wonder if lack of appeal to the yaoi fans might have also played a part.:XD Lately I noticed that pretty much all the top Jump series (off the top of my head -...
December 17, 2008 10:39 AM
LOL you're right there. And he's the child of two tailors.
Don't get me wrong, this centenarian found Kiri endearing too, but I did sometimes find it a bit hard to swallow that he was good at...
December 17, 2008 08:24 AM
I just can't buy the argument that Komi-sensei himself wasn't ready to continue. He seemed to know exactly where they story was going.
Just to play devil's advocate... I wonder if the series lost...
December 17, 2008 07:26 AM
nah, the Viz translation is still going on. :p
I'm really curious to see how Yoshimori survives chapter 220 though... without getting beaten to death by outraged Yukimura women or dying from a...
December 15, 2008 12:40 AM
I'm starting to wonder if all the new series introduced and quickly cancelled in 2008 were just a 40th anniversary publicity stunt.</cynic>
December 09, 2008 11:13 AM
I think I uploaded the raw, but I have no idea if I even uploaded it to the right place (I'm terribly confused by the new system) or if it is still even needed. Once the translator I'm working with...
December 09, 2008 09:21 AM
This year's Tegami-Bachi postcard from the JSQ 1st anniversary postcard series:
December 08, 2008 07:02 PM
Most one-shots are used as a way to sell a possible series to the publisher. But Komi's one-shots tend to be self-contained and wrap themselves up so there's no chance of a series. The only exception...
December 08, 2008 09:37 AM
I think it was Kubo himself who admitted that ZP was ended due to his own mental state, so unless we get a statement like that from Komi-sensei (and I mean Komi himself and not some guy on 2ch:XD),...
December 07, 2008 10:30 AM
Here's something else I saw when I was putting the jacket back on:
I was wondering if it was considered unusual for...
December 07, 2008 06:53 AM
Somehow I managed to get the only copy of Double Arts 3 in my country while it was still in the box at Kino.
I scanned these in a hurry, forgive the quality. I'm still busy catching up on...
December 04, 2008 10:27 AM
the yellow text is something about omake.
the white on black text is something about a new one-shot in issue 4+5 (the regular New Year double issue, I'd wager) of Weekly Jump to be released...
November 06, 2008 07:01 PM
I finally got my JSQ, very cute story the art is pretty awesome, I was looking forward to seeing how Komi-sensei does urban futuristic and he did not disappoint. the only downer is that this seems...
October 30, 2008 08:11 AM
I just scanlated the vol 2 omake with translations by Aonseuth: Mediafire
(The translation of the author note was done by me though, so sorry if it sounds like crap:sweat)
October 27, 2008 09:54 AM
Funny you should say that, since 晒すcan also mean "bleach" - and there's something very Arrankar about him~:ulq
October 27, 2008 09:06 AM
It looks insanely cool. Doesn't look like ANYTHING he's done before. Gives me Baku-man vibes, it does.:XD
"Thou, who exposes the...
October 25, 2008 08:14 PM
It's something like
Yay! Volume 2 is published!
... as early as volume 2, the auhor commenting here is troubled ...
or something like that. Someone wanna clean it up some?
October 25, 2008 10:52 AM
Author's note inside the vol 2 cover flap:
October 11, 2008 01:42 AM
so this week's would be the first real ranked chapter? Not too shabby...
