    Sticky: [Chapter] Re: Beelzebub 240 Discussion (Series end)

    I was a bit late on the beelzebub train, but when i first started reading it I was hooked. Aside from like one arc in the story, i thought it was pretty much done perfectly. In fact, there has not...
  2. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012-2013] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    I have not read the new Beelzebub chapter but does it seem like its ending already? The current arc doesn't feel like an ending arc, but what i'm wondering is where this series can go. The only thing...

    Even when it does dip into bottom five, its not as frequent. Compare say Soul Catcher(S) and Smoky which have both more or less sat directly on bottom since they have gotten ranked. The new series...

    I definitely don't see it lasting. 3 chapters out so far and nothings really hooked and i don't care at all about the characters or story so far.

    [Shounen] Re: Hime-dol!! by KYOU Kazurou

    Didn't have high expectations for this one after reading the one shot, but the serialization looks great. The art, the school and backstory remind me a bit of Shokugeki No Soma, but this one has a...

    Yeah things aren't looking good for Smoky B.B. now that everything below it is gone. Soul Catcher(S) keeps getting ranked just above it. Overall the last round of serializations just aren't cutting...

    Toriko's a hit regardless how you look at it. I can see it taking over for Naruto and Bleach when their runs end as one of the big 3 replacements.
  19. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012-2013] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 1

    Yeah in Bleach time the final battle could easily mean 2 years. I wouldn't worry too much.

    Even Naruto has at least a year to go (probably longer) with the pace it's been at and this "battle" has...
