The manga is incredibly superior to the anime series. The anime series adds some pretty terrible mysteries and completely trashes Sai's backstory. He is a lot more interesting in the manga. I also...

Loving on the Yumichika for the Bleach cover, but my favorite has definitely got to be Kasai for the Neuro cover. I'm really glad all the Bloodline members have gotten a chance to be highlighted on...
January 31, 2009 12:37 AM
There's official colors of them on the volume covers actually:
DR and Tierra
January 28, 2009 12:39 AM
Well, they've been mentioned in the past, when they moved with him to Tokyo, but yeah, I don't know what kind of parents would let their son act like that (then again, I can't see anyone ever...
January 27, 2009 04:19 PM
Out of all the three newbies, I definitely only really like Bokke-san. It's suspenseful and Hinomiya definitely has a strange charm to him as a lead. Not to mention, that after so many volumes of...
January 26, 2009 04:05 AM
Ahaha, it is sort of like Death Note lite if you think about it. Saiko, a bored student, preparing for exams, gets pulled onto a path he never thought by a notebook, eventually coming into a strange...
January 26, 2009 04:02 AM
I'd vote Iwase, even though I doubt she'll appear again for at least another thirty chapters.
Second to her, Saiko, because he's adorable and really easy to identify with for me. And then Eiji,...
January 26, 2009 03:53 AM
Between the two, my vote is for Azuki, because she's frankly more interesting as a character for me. I think a lot of people don't pay attention to the fact that Saiko tends to paint her with a broad...

I'm sure he'll get at least a few assistants when they finally get serialized. It would help make the manga-making segments a little less rushed.
January 08, 2009 08:10 AM
Definitely agreed. I doubt Eiji would abuse that power if S+S were truly doing a good manga. He's not a competitive rival at this point. He's a goal, someone who's working out of a pure love of manga...
January 07, 2009 10:13 AM
Yeah :D Still a chance that there are others out there.
January 07, 2009 05:38 AM
paradigm? The art's really pretty disappointing, though. Checked Y!J after that, too, but still nothing Double Arts (although some very cute pre-made Elraine cosplay-- If only I were anywhere near...
January 07, 2009 12:43 AM
I checked around on a few of the fanartist sites that I know of and saw there was at least artist that would be selling a DA doujinshi.
But I don't know about any others. I had someone looking...
January 07, 2009 12:23 AM
Agreed. I would definitely love to see what Shujin and Azuki look like in similarly-styled covers.
December 21, 2008 12:39 AM
For those of you who don't want to wait through the animation.
I'm really impressed by the way Komi's artwork keeps progressing. This splashpage is...
December 17, 2008 08:05 PM
That's actually a good point. There was something in Bakuman just recently about how they focus on votes from younger boys most in the main rankings. So, the fact that DA appealed to an older...
December 14, 2008 05:58 PM
That makes a lot of sense. Thanks for clearing that up, evi!
December 13, 2008 01:40 AM
True, the real test of a good sports manga is definitely in how the games are handled. Considering the lead's approach to playing competitively, it should make for an interesting first match, at...
December 13, 2008 01:38 AM
I'm actually loving that Eiji's a fan of theirs. It's a twist that works well with how he's been built up with such a pure-hearted love for manga. It also makes the rival dynamic much more...
December 13, 2008 01:32 AM
... I'm in love with the preview art already.
I was excited about Nishi getting a new series at all, but this looks incredibly promising.
December 06, 2008 03:28 PM
The first fifteen are:
5. Bossun (as drawn by Switch)
December 06, 2008 03:25 PM
I'm assuming they're just identifying Komi by his work more-so than offering a sequel one-shot.
But, I'm impressed at how Komi really doesn't seem to be getting discouraged at all and is throwing...
December 06, 2008 03:19 PM
I was really prepared not to like this one after KOsen and it certainly did feel pretty cliche at points.
But the lead character felt refreshing. It's nice seeing a lead so confident and...
December 01, 2008 09:10 PM
sob. That's a beautiful cover. It makes me feel nostalgic for it already.
December 01, 2008 09:09 PM
Well, if you want super high quality and don't mind jumping through some hoops for your manga, check out JumpLand?
October 21, 2008 11:05 AM
Bossun was my first favorite character and, I admit, he never really gets old.
But, my fondness has always been for the student council, especially Tsubaki. I'm hoping that now that the flashback...
October 21, 2008 10:59 AM
Yeah, you'd think we'd have heard something by now. This wait is really making me antsy.
October 18, 2008 06:18 AM
I don't mind so much. The Jump raws for Neuro are so terrible I'd feel sorry for anyone who worked with them. At least this way we get a nice big chunk all at once in great quality. And Anonymous...
October 15, 2008 04:48 AM
The translation on Jumpland uses 'storyboard' for 'name', which makes it a little clearer.
October 04, 2008 02:13 AM
Nope. Looks like the raws for it are a little later than usual this week.
October 01, 2008 02:12 AM
Well, I can't say it's the first time, but I'm incredibly excited for next week's chapter.
Although I really mostly can't wait until we finally see the other rival manga artist. It's killing me...
September 03, 2008 12:15 AM
I'm guessing a lot of whether or not this is eventually licensed will be resting on how well Muhyo sells. Although with Neuro's art, it'd be a hard sell either way.
January 17, 2008 12:49 PM
Judging by what we can see of his/her collar, possibly the kid in the witches hat that was with the Cervello in 174?
November 15, 2007 12:32 PM
Yeah, I'll definitely miss it, though.
November 05, 2007 12:49 PM
I'm glad to see the introduction chapters are mostly finished with the most recent chapter. It looks like it's going to be interesting watching how all these stories tie together.
November 01, 2007 05:53 AM
A script and a few more pictures.
September 30, 2007 10:55 AM
I've really enjoyed her voice so far. It's got the right mix of Chrome's social awkwardness and straightforwardness. I thought it was weird the anime used her voice for the rooftop scene and Hibari...
September 26, 2007 03:32 AM
Here's the episode on Veoh?
December 01, 2006 12:25 AM
The other manga is Blue Dragon ST (Secret Trick). It will be running in Monthly Shounen Jump and is by Shibata Ami.
A preview of the art can be found here: http://mj.shueisha.co.jp/bdst/index.html
