Forum News: Visit new sections for Nisekoi and Kingdom!
Jump S.Q. is actually a not a shounen magazine. It is a universal magazine which is why it's considered a surpreme quality manga magazine. I guess this was due to boost sales up 10 fold since it looks to appeal to everyone (from boys to girls, and from typical shounen to even some seinen and gag.)
as a side note, I have biyori and Kure-nai done. I'm just waiting for Rosario to come out so I can release it all at once. Just expect an update by saturday at the most.
awesome, means that the more mature looking art styles seen such as luck stealer may have less limits to the story taht youd get from shonen
is there TOC for J.S ?
i imagine we'll know when it begins.......... after a couple of issues when the ratings will mean something.
ToC order is really only important for magazines that at least order them in accordance with popularity. I only know of WSJ that does this. Maybe more magazines do, but I am not sure about that.
so it most likely will publish mostly not a long continued manga in each issue ?
No, just that the order in which the series are placed may mean nothing as far as popularity goes.
Like I said, I am only aware of WSJ that does it that way. I don't know for certain that any other magazines do, but I'm probably wrong.
ah now i get it LOL,.. sorry for the trouble,.. so if theres some manga with a high popularity, JS will keep track of that ? something like that right ?
most likely. I'm hoping there's an easy way to know the popularity, as it'd be less impacting when things die. although in monthly series thats usually after 4+ months/chapters.
although don't hold me to that figure, it is only an estimation, and one on weak ground too.
It wouldn't make much sense to have the same type of ToC rankings that weekly magazines have for the monthlies for the exact reason you said Indiana. Readers can keep a pulse on popularity in weeklies, but I don't know if its worthwhile to do it for monthlies.
I'm really surprised that this little but of news hasn't been posted yet.
Next week, Hiroyuki Takei (creator of Butsu Zone, Shaman King, and Jyuki Ningen Jumbor) will have a message in Weekly Shonen Jump! The section his message will be under is the "Go!Go!SQ!" which is a section about the new manga magazine, Jump SQ (released monthly starting in Nov.). His message could just be "support" for the new magazine, BUT there will be an illustration by Takei as well (as far as the orginal rumor-news says, and which I believe is confirmed somewhere on 2ch, but I haven't looked). And rule of thumb is (and even more so if it's noted in advance)...
New drawings almost always mean a new series!
And by new series, it could mean Shaman King comes back! Or it could be something new! It could be a one shot, or it could be a brand new series. Either way, it will VERY likely mean that it will be in JumpSQ and NOT Weekly Shonen Jump. This means, if it's any more than a oneshot chapter, it will be monthly chapter releases.
So, I'd like to annouce at this time, or just re-confirm, if Takei releases anything in JumpSQ (oneshot, SK, or something new), Mankin-Trad ( http://mankin-trad.net ) will try it's hardest to scanlate what ever it is.
Holy fucking shit---
