Translations: Bleach 600 (2)
Looking over the first chapter...may be something interesting if translated. On the other hand...somehow I think Ohba is giving us more hints on his true ID. (see the Luckyman-like hero in the manga the lead once read)
I just read the first chapter and I like it.It's really contrast to Death Note.The protagonist also feels like Light a bit."It's a pain-in-the-ass boring future "<--This speech is so Light-like.Oh,and I like the manga references:
"It's not a Death Note,is it?" and "We'll never be more popular than Dragonball or One Piece"LOL.
True its interestin' to think the char would like Ral and the persona is like Light...WOW!!
cant wait for the next chap..!!
I enjoyed the first chapter. The chapter was really cheesy and awkward at moments (the whole first bit felt so much like DN it was ridiculous, but also clearly intentional - perfect for laughs), which means Ohba's not taking himself too seriously - but I also liked the more serious stuff, like the story with his uncle. Very good stuff. The art is lovely too, but we expected as much.
I'm already looking forward to more; these 58 pages were still too few!
i can't wait till someone scans this manga i want to read it
I enjoyed it. Immensely. The entire first chapter is just... so full of energy it's hilarious. Oh, and the beginning made me laugh with all the Death Note vibe and the mention of notes.
Another thing: "WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?!" "I DON'T KNOW... I'M ONLY IN 9TH GRADE..."
Great start. Definitely following this one.
Can't wait until it is translated. I was gonna say that a plot like that can only be popular to otakus and couldn't hold appeal mainstream. I hope I am wrong.
for those who haven't got a chance to see/read it, here's a online viewable link via onemanga....
As for the chapter... it looks interesting to say the least. I want to read it over before I really form an opinion on it since I'm so bloody tired right now but I will say...that at first glance, I was kinda disappointed with the artwork. Overall Obata did a good job... I just felt that some of the pages were somewhat subpar for what we have seen from him do in earlier pieces. I don't know... maybe I got too used to his work in the oneshots; Hello baby, Death Note oneshot and Urooboe Uroboros... which artistically were pretty much flawless in my opinion.

lmaoooo "don't look so serious. it's not a death note, is it?"... that made mee lol so hard!
man... this manga is hilarious... I like both characters.. xD
it seems Takagi = Ohba | Mashiro = Obata... O_o
lookin forward to it!
Now I really want to see pictures of Ohba-sensei and Obata-sensei.Maybe both of them really look like Saiko and Akito.
....I don't wanna ruin it for anyone..
This is another manga on my list!
Hopefully it dosn't last too long..(like one piece)
how do you do the spoiler tags?

fxu, the conundrum of ohba is supposedly that he's the luckyman manga-ka under a different name to avoid comparisons to his old comedy work or such.
And explosive is certainly a way to describe bakuman! revealing more on the jump editors ways of cancelling series after around 10 weeks of low rankings (subject to alteration of course, dependant on length of series), giving the largest hint yet that the author of luckyman is Ohba, and managing to throw together something infinitely more interesting than death note (though time will tell).......
I hope Shueisha won't cancel this one.I think this manga is a benefit for people who want to make manga.
P.S:Noodles,are you Indiana Mcemo?
Hey,,dont talk about the cancel so early!!
but since its the one from the best manga-ka,U shouldn't worry!!
