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

    surprised it took this long to be honest. Still, proves its legitimacy as popular on its own means when it goes that long without further promotion
  2. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    I think Naoshi's use of fanservice is pretty super acceptable, it's usually more tasteful, or at least a better representation of his illustration skills, than what we've seen from any number of...
  3. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Zumo's author may well not be new. After all, we've had people like Momiji's artist, who's claimed to be working in manga for years as an assistant or some such
  4. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Jesus christ, at this point I wouldn't be surprise if Zumo gets a cover in the near future. But then it's a good comic, so what did I expect
  5. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    seems kinda like the internet being the internet. Holding on to accusations that are no longer relevant till it dooms whatever it is they're slagging off. Which is... Dumb, really.
  6. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    I can't decide what I think of Condor. Like a lot of panels look lovely, and it has a great set of colour pages, but the backgrounds (or lack thereof) kinda break it for me. Still, it's refreshingly...
  7. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    WAY less than before, by my reading, but it almost feels lesser for it. Like the ripping off gave it a bit more personality for me. The first chapter's still interesting though, to be sure.
  8. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    I dunno, without the scar it's just another bishie for certain audiences to pair up (not that there's anything wrong et cetera et cetera)

    All of the four have used promising images. Nejiyama-san...
  9. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    So Sharkbait's angle is "don't make assumptions, now watch me make assumptions", so whatever, but it is worth noting that this is the first title in a while that can properly be called a bit (but...
  10. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    I doubt it's as much an accurate premonition as to the series not surviving (because christ, that's not how it works) as much as a combo of not seeing the titles as suitable gets and being hesitant...
  11. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Absolutely, but not just for that reason. I love seeing authors in their rawer states, before they've developed into their own consistent style. It's just exciting to see, like early Naoshi Komi...
  12. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    *fans self with volume 1* It's totally the sort of thing that the majority wouldn't be interested in english-speaking countries, so scanlators and viz are both unlikely to dabble, but I can...
  13. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Hard to tell from the size for sure, but from here the cover composition looks a lot nicer than we've had from most debuting comics in a good while. That's nice.
  14. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    exactly, we aren't scholars. So we shouldn't act like we know something we don't. It's reasonable to treat it as 8 weeks in being a good measure of a series' reception, but there's no reason for us...
  15. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    no-one knows for sure if it's ANY amount of weeks, it's just masturbatory navel-gazing.
  16. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    I think the Takei comparison holds solid, and I'd criticise Takei for the same, at least nowadays. But yeah despite my griping, Horikoshi's art is so far removed from any trend that it can be...
  17. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Was an poorly conveyed comic whose plagiaristic elements were its downfall. And without art it wouldn't have existed.



    Same as with Barrage. Overcomplicated designs coupled with poor...
  18. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    nope, but it is like 80-90% of what a comic is. Without it it'd be dialogue, sound effects and captions, after all. And to expect success from a title the art HAS to have something more going for it....
  19. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Visually it has every single problem any work by Horikoshi has, but the superpower stuff kinda fits those design flaws much better than in his previous titles. Cautiously optimistic.
  20. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Going all-in on JoJo is a huge enough deal that anything else is kinda just left in the dust, so you can get why they didn't say much more.
  21. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    almost like Assassination Classroom doesn't really need the promotion anymore. It's a given success
  22. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    iShojo's moving is the best possible thing that can happen to it. At worst it fails and we get another cheap, 4+ chapter digital tank up on ebookjapan and the like. It's totally... Well, it's...

    [Mag Talk] Re: Jump SQ (Shueisha)

    I own the first two volumes and really like it. It feel a little... inconsequential at times, but it's a fun read through and through, which is far too rare a thing nowadays.

    Um... Glad to see your support of the series only extends so far?

    Also Double Arts had Island in volume 1. No connection to the title itself, just Naoshi's debut work. In exchange for taking that...
  30. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    The enhanced versions of print editions aren't particularly new. A notable chunk of Jump comics past and present have full colour ediitions. iShoujo's mostly notable for having a huge turnaround, and...
  31. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    That's... I am constantly confused by Jump's approach to iShoujo. Like they clearly have an enormous affection for it, at least enough to keep trying these interesting promotional efforts. But you'd...
  32. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    I can see VizBig being the format of choice for JoJo. It's more feasible than single volumes, and can sell at a premium higher than 3-in-1 editions. After all, JoJo, for all its recent successes, is...

    Oh well fuck spoilers for them, they don't matter.
  34. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Isn't Konami's transformation in tanks by now? Very minor spoiler anyway.

    The beauty of the cross-promotional author/assistant relationship, to be sure.
  37. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    The reasons are explainable buddy. They don't like it. Chances are they don't think it's very good. I mean you do, and that's great, but... the people who matter, the reader majority, clearly think...

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

    I'd say that Reborn! is like Medaka Box. It was probably cancelled, but Akira Amano gave it a very 'real' ending, all "their adventures will continue" without leaving any plot-based blue balls, as it...
  43. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Though of course understand that cancellation can lead to a natural end. People massively overestimate what a 'natural end' even is. It's less that the publisher let a title continue until the...
  44. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    also Play Ball. Play Ball's a GREAT example of an anime coming out decades after the manga ended.
  45. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    As much as I've disliked Stealth Symphony's art (the occasional spectacular character concept aside), I'm pretty hype for a volume cover. Colour art is where Amano's hybrid Ryu Fujisaki/Takeshi Obata...

    or even the best in a long time. great colour choices and nothing but unconventional expressions. Exudes personality, where it could have so easily been generic or moody, as is kubo's wont to do
