    Re: Jump TOC Talk

    It truly exceeds my logic that they cancel series that SELL WELL. Honestly, I am starting to think that Jump is not a business in order to make money, but a business that wants to take all potential mangaka's and discourage them so that we are forever stuck with crap like Bleach and Naruto.

    Oh, so THAT'S why I feel like my comments for SJ mean nothing...

    Still seems a bit early for Bakuman/Inumaru Dash! since they're... three, four chapters long? I wonder what the fan reception for those is/will be.

    We need someone living in Japan to picket in front of Shueisha so that misguided newbie mangaka would be able to see the light

    But seriously, from what I heard, Shueisha treats their mangakas better than Shogakukan...

    Re: Jump TOC Talk

    hmmm..... well at least Naoshi is doing something in SQ come november, so they're not treated too badly.

    especially togashi, with the togashi-isms around the jump offices

    Re: Jump TOC Talk

    But if newbie mangaka are successful, they make more money. It's not THAT impossible; sure, most new series fail, but look at Toriko. Besides that, To Love-Ru and even Nurarihyon no Mago aren't doing THAT bad (okay, Mago could still fall, but...). Of course they want that promise of becoming the next OP, no matter how badly they could end up.

    Toriko's by an infamous established author though, so Mago is the only one that really counts as a newbie being successful.

    What the anthology really needs is to hold another golden one shot thing, like it did last year.......

    or is that going on now with the spate of one shots coming in?

    Well... Mitsutoshi's previous work (Takeshi) was in decline before it ended... though it's possible to go on for a few more years (like PoT did) if he didn't go to jail...

    Pretty much, yeah. They tend to let them hang out in the middle/top so that they catch more people's eyes (maybe? that's a guess on my part) but yeah, it's arbitrary.

    Re: Jump TOC Talk

    Hmmm....i will hold my opinion on Sawaii's new work. Any word on the plot? Asklepios looks interesting as ever.

    Any word on what Naoshi is doing in SQ? Probably just a oneshot.

    It sounds like you considered judging it based on just one picture. I know you didn't, but why would you form an opinion on something until you got a chance to read it? Aside from "looks cool" or "looks dumb" but that's not generally worth saying.
