It was not very surprise that Metallica won the Golden Future Cup because Metalica is very Jump-like series. This means Metallica will be likely to be serialize on spring of 2010.

Isn't Metallica guaranteed serialization now?
Well, past winners serialized their work around spring/summer of next year.
1st Winner: Sakamoto Yuujirou
One Shot=2004 Issue 35, Serialized=2005 Issue 25
2nd Winner: Amano Youichi
One Shot=2005 Issue 36･37, Serialized=2006 Issue 33
3rd Winner: Shiibashi Hiroshi
One Shot=2007 Issue 35, Serialized=2008 Issue 15
4th Winner: Tamura Ryuuhei
One Shot=2008 Issue 37･38, Serialized=2009 Issue 13
And winner of Golden Future Cup has positive response from readers, so there is high possibility that the editors will consider to serialize on next year.
So, this Metallica Metalca, anyone has an idea what it's about? All we have to go on is the cover art.

I don't think a Japanese summary will help a lot of users.......
So I'll just glimpse over the Metallica summary and do a very quick and sketchy TL. I definitely won't do one for the other stories since those summaries may not look like much but that's elusory! (In fact, they are quite long xD)
Like I said, it's a speed TL and sketchy...but better than nothing, eh? : )Quote:
So Metallica got 1st...looks interesting enough. And Crown! will probably get serialized too since it got 2nd unless there was a huge gap between the votes for 1 and 2...hopefully this will be a decent sports since, imo, there hasn't been a good one debut in quite a while.
any1 can post the numbers of votes of the series?
i'd like information on voting in the polls for any manga magazine. wish there was manga company here in the states, would be awesome.
Will there be a really good new action manga that can be in the top 5 at least, the new ones haven't been that good.
The new ones have been great! The Kyoto arc of Mago is the best in thing in the magazine at the moment. Psyren and Toriko are consistantly entertaining, often great, series. Just my opinion, all are welcome to their own, but all three are at least worth trying. Toriko and Psyren took a little while to get going. Mago was a lot of fun from the start and keeps getting better.
Not for nothing, but Metalica Metaluca sounds rather...boring. Then again, if it has references to the band Metallica for the pure irony, then it would be epic.
Based on art alone this years Golden Cup was a bit boring. The plot of metallica doesn't do much for me, but I guess a synopsis of pretty much any Jump series would look lame, generic, cheesy, or childish. In reality I wouldn't put that many in those categories.
Well, this Golden Future Cup might be boring, but I think Metalica (or other series) can become better when it serialized. I, pesonally, think one shot of Mago was not very good, but it turned into one of best series in Jump when it serialized.
Also, I didn't read Metalica, but based on cover art and summary, it kinds of reminds me Fairy Tail.

That's very true. Countless crap one shots went on to be good or at least serviceable series. Naruto comes to mind, Bleach and Death Note too. ITA about Mago. The one shot wasn't bad but I didn't think it had much potential as a series. So I made the mistake of not reading from chapter 1 but waiting a few months.
