    That's what character development is for, I think that he'll wise up eventually.

    Re: [NEWCOMER] Hoop Men by Kawaguchi Yukinori

    So, I've read the first two chapters and looked at the raw of the third. Before reading it I was thinking that Jump staff wanted to extend their reader perimeter and increase sales by adding new sport mangas no matter what. So, that's why I thought that Kuroko was considered as a sure value that will continue and Hoop Men would be protected like Double Arts was at the beginning and would reach 20 chapters easily.
    When I first looked at the raw of the first chapter, the drawings make me think again about my theory on their strategy, because it looked more like a gag manga than a traditional sports manga. But with the scans the manga appeared to me more like the traditional sports manga but with a light-hearted tone (it even began to build some rivalry and tensions between teammates (over a girl)).

    I did not find the first two chapters funny and the art does not capture players' movements well during basketball phases. Kuroko's mangaka does a better job in my opinion.
    So, I am not very interested in it, but what would have interested me is that actually the girl and her childhood were actually a couple and the hero stole the girl

    Finally got around to reading the translated chapters and I liked it a lot better than I expected. It's got a lot going against it's survivability, but I would really like to see it go somewhere.

    I really liked the last chapters of this one and I think it has some nice flow...
    Therefore I hope it can stick around for some time!

    We are, the thing is our typesetter has been having computer trouble for some time now, so things are a bit delayed.

    Re: Hoop Men by Kawaguchi Yukinori

    As a big fan of Slam Dunk, I can't help but notice the similarities between Slam Dunk and Hoopmen.
    A lot of the vocab and themes are really similar... Like, really similar.


    I do like this series, but I like Slam Dunk far better

    I haven't read kuroko yet, I might have to check it out!

    I think there is no basketball manga to beat Slam Dunk and never well. Hoopmen does have similarities, but it going to be cancel in matter of time.
