  1. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 4

    You must not have been around when Neuro was in the magazine; that was a cult hit if ever there was one, very rarely making it out of the bottom half of the magazine, often in the bottom five....

    Incidentally: Assassination Classroom is awesome (no surprise, after the masterpiece Neuro), so I hope it comes out real strong when ranked!

    Togashi tired of Hunter? Not if this most recent arc was any indication... one of the series' best, in a short burst of glory. Didn't read like the product of someone tired with his series, though of...

    So thrilled about HxH continuing indefinitely... especially as, arguably, the manga has never been better.
