lol :P yea i know in the start i didnt like the art but im starting to get use to it now ^_^.
I think the school / roof setting will just be for now i think once we hit the first Major story line the story is realie going to get good. Lets just hope it makes it that far ^_^
Yeah you are probably right. It has to be like introducing a bit characters, zan, situation and other things. Would not be suprised if other interesting arcs would come out...Originally Posted by ssjohn
I kinda agree too. Atm you can only say zan will be action shounen, but you do not know where the story will go to. And I certainly have high hopes of zan getting better. Zan certainly has potential and people saying the art sucks, I only say read more and you'll adapt to it. Give zan a chance...
Here is a Zan related qustion how is it doing in Japan? do they like it ? or is it in same spot as Tsugihagi was in before it ended early?
it is near the middle but more towards the bottom of the newest ToC (15th of 21) (on a side note, i am glad over time is doing pretty well as it cracked the top 10 in jump.)
yeah, but you can not say for zan it's doing bad atm... it's already 5 chapters far and it hasn't still been in de danger zone, compared to other new shounen that came out. Btw, how are these things decide (because mieru hito is on the lowest part for ages and but is luckily still ongoing)
they have polls that they ask and it determines the position like 8 weeks ahead i think
And... that's how they decided dropping something or not? Lame, okay a magazine has to be sold better. But isn't it logical that except for popular, there's something like alternative. You can't make a mag comepletely out of op, naruto,... I am glad there are alternative manga like zan, muhyo, mieru hito,...
-> me glad too, over time is doing well
it probably isnt only that but you have to make money of of the manga in the magazine and if people dont like it then what can do about it.
"alternative" ? lol.
There are no alternative series in Jump. There's even no such thing as alternative shounen, shounen in itself IS mainstream.
There's just hits and not-hits.
I can't get over the fact that 2 groups are actually scanlating Zan.
well believe, our hits on zan are really high... you could be suprised!
and by alternative I don't mean like in none-shounen, I mean like more a-typical, different shounen. e.g. tsugihagi that was so no mainstream, just like d. gray-man imo is...[br]Posted on: August 27, 2006, 02:49:12 PM_________________________________________________oh, and two groups are doing zan (if it depends on me, it's not) but how many groups are doing bleach, one piece, naruto,...
zan's popularity BAFFLES me, but despite that, it was apparently appealing enough from the start for two groups to do it.
also, i have a feeling that Mieru Hito is going to be cut in the next batch of series that end, so enjoy while you can.
Might be, it barely escaped getting cut before since other series were even worse.
Chances are next time, 2 series will be cut and Murusame is as sure as anything to go.
The thing is with Shonen Jump, their biggest hit ever was Dragonball. And you can clearly see that the most succesfull series in Jump right now are pretty much influenced by Dragonball; so it's safe to say this type of shounen is Jump's trademark.
That's just the way things are.
If you want to read a-typical shounen, Shonen Sunday has a much better line-up. Kekkaishi and Yakitate Japan come to mind.
Basically the stuff that gets published in Jump are succesfull Dragonball-influenced series, or unsuccesfull.
With a few exceptions like Death Note. (how that ever was in Jump is a mystery to me)
Barbapapa - Maybe that had something to do with the author and hng? maybe they made a deal they would do there next magna with jump or something >.> And also DB is the HUGE standered manga's have to look at now i mean how long has it been over and japan and its still huge ... *btw don't ask about my nick >_> (ss=supersayain)*
T__T @ murasamekun / mieru mite be being cut T__T but i personly havent enjoyed Murasame-kun from the raws i have looked at it looks ok but its not Naruto so >.>
@ 2 groups doing zan . Well that shocks me too >.> i mean jump-scans isnt going to stop doing it but im shocked that there are 2 doing Zan and no one's doing other manga's like um the new BoBoBo or Murasamekun or Neruo or something >.> there only should be one group / two max per manga but we all see how many groups do the big 3 (bleach, one piece, naruto) O well.
Why don't you guys just cooperate -__-; I mean... Why do you always have to release some other series UNDER your name? :/ As long as the stuff gets out, aren't you happy? At least I am.
In the past, I've helped countless groups (okay, fine, about 5-7 groups) with their translation when they're lacking. I still do help several groups with translation so that the series get on going. And I don't ask them to include KEFI name on the release. Sometimes I even ask NOT to include my name. But whatever group wants to help KEFI project (usually new groups) always ask for their name to be on it... Bleh.
As for Zan, I still probably rank it lower than some other series. I like Neuro better actually. And Gintama. I mean, Gintama's so popular in Japan and no one scanlate it :/
