    I find it interesting that Satou, even though being able to speak English rather fluently, he is still shocked by the cultural differences in wording, politeness and such. Shouldn't he have noticed these before? He is however right when he points out that interpreting will be hard, I can think of few harder jobs, actually... Most of those involve risking your life.

    I kind of like Hoop men more than Kuroko. I'd rather Kuroko dies.

    *sigh* I'm sorry for being late, it'll be out later today or early tomorrow. The blasted thing was much more than I expected (typesetting-wise) so I was caught off guard. chapter two will be out most likely on Tuesday, if not tomorrow either.

    Alright, chapter 01 is out! I find it funny that Josh's best ability is his magic pass.

    ^It's actually kind of an interesting starting point for the story, having his magic pass, since it opens up for more team-work, rather than just him owning his opponents. I've started to find the main character increasingly annoying, which might be a bad thing if it happens already, but I have some hopes for his development.

    both kuroko and hoop men are very different. whilst i prefer hoop men due to my addiction to gag manga, i'm aware both are amazing series.... and should live... but then who dies?! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH

    I'm starting to like Hoop Men more than Kuroko after only two chapters, but I do agree that they can't be blamed for being similar since they seem to each have a different niche.

    for me it's the art and presence of beyond solid gags. Most people like unusually stylised stuff, let alone characters that are far too east to connect to

    The art is dodgy in places, but in my opinion the faces are wonderfully unique and goofy. I think I might prefer it to Kuroko already too.

    Re: [NEWCOMER] Hoop Men by Kawaguchi Yukinori

    I like it... except i'm having trouble with Yuuho... he can be so annoying! I prefer my characters motivated by something other than getting into the manager's pants, so i'm casting my vote with Kuroko right now. I also wish they'd focus a little more on them actually playing basketball... but the gags are good. I like Josh he's such a retard lol.
