    it hasn't been announced. it's a pattern that's formed in his return from wanting to have a life, he returns in march for 10 chapters, and october for 10 chapters, releasing the previous ten as a much improved volume at the same time... the march isn't confirmed but we got october two years in a row, so it's safe to assume for now

    i look at Contractor M&Y and Jyuki Ningen Jumbor as rare examples, like chagecha, where a series was so unpopular that the authors just went "ya know what... screw it, not worth the struggle for failure" or "huh this isn't gonna work out is it"

    Another question: Is there any source for the rumor about DGM getting back in April? >.>

    You really see that date now everywhere, so I wonder if I may have missed an announcement.

    Not a reliable one ^^

    Glenat, it's Spanish publisher posted something on their website. Until Shueisha says something I won't completely believe it.

    especially considering the conflict of information on what's actually wrong with her (and it is her, we have confirmation now, viz can stop getting it wrong... wait or is it? WHAT'S GOING ON?!)

    It's kind of sad that Meister didn't catch on rather than Kuroko. Meister has several games and teams planned. Kuroko doesn't have anything. I find it funny a series is getting support when the main character's special power is being uninteresting (Literally).

    Maybe it's just a preference of basketball over soccer in Japan right now... I'm sure alot of series just come in the wrong place at the wrong time. Meister's timing could have been just be ill-placed. Besides, there is no guarentee that Kuroko won't fail. It will probably just last longer than Meister. Or something like that...

    Lots of it seems to be due to mistranslations. I'm also with the others waiting for Shueisha's official confirmation... and seeing how WSJ does things, we probably won't know until the week before or so.

    (I guess Viz just didn't want to reveal it before she was ready to?)

    how is his special ability being uninteresting? It's his lack of presence on the court that makes him an exceptional passer.

    And it's because Meister has itself so set up that it's going to fail. I've expressed my feelings on Meister various times, but it's just trying to develop itself too fast. That one chapter introduced about 20 characters at once. Where is the mystery, wheres the intrigue?

    Kuroko set itself up with a reasonable story, meanwhile Meister is all about "PLAY AND HAVE FUN", I tried reading chapter 8 and it was just, ugh. Though KnB could fall next issue and I could totally be eating my words.

    Kuroko's power is being mediocre in every possible aspect so people underestimate him. I personally think that it incredibly lame..

    In Meister it's not just "PLAY AND HAVE FUN". In chapter 9 for example, when Satomi High concede, they try to maintain the scoreline by just 0-1 with offside trap strategy. It works and they start the attacking not through the middle but down the flank.They still use strategy to attack and defend.

    chapter 9 has made up for some pacing issues with the character introductions that's for sure. fixed it up a helluva lot. but then the whole match has helped with that one niggling flaw. so once again meister jumps above... well nothing, its still in my top 5, just not above sket or jaguar...

    It's possible that basketball is more popular than soccer right now in Japan... if Meister would've debuted when Japan (& South Korea) held the FIFA World Cup in 2002, I think it could've been big.

    Or if the world cup was set to be played in Japan in 06 instead of Germany.

    Definitely agree with him there. Plus the nod for To Love Ru made me jump for joy. :P
