    CoroCoro Comic and the kodomo demographic

    Just wondering whether anyone here had read any manga from the kodomo demographic? I'm talking about series like Doraemon and Beyblade. (Mangahelpers labeled Doraemon under 'Shonen' though...)

    Frankly, the last kodomo manga I've read was the one for Rockman EXE and that was a long time ago. I think it was more popular as an anime though. In fact, looking through the CoroCoro wiki entry, it looks like many of these series were more popular as anime or their original game counterparts.

    So, had anyone even seen any of these before? What do you guys think of it all?

    Btw, this all came about after I followed a link to a Professor Layton manga.

    I didn't really read any of those rather watched the anime or played a game of them. Which I know are the following:

    I watched a number of these. Some were definitely better than others. Zoids for instance was great stuff. Rockman EXE on the other hand not so much.

    I've watched Bayblade....ah Kai, he brings back memories with Dranzer.

    I still remember a few. Dragoon was Tyson's Bitbeast.
    I forgot Max's but I know it was a purple turtle type...and Lee's was that tiger, forgot his name as well. Kenny's bitbeast was his laptop, am I right?

    Black Dranzer and Dranzer were the best though.

    About Ratchet and Clank, their manga designs look a bit weird. Ratchet has a huge grin a giant bushy eyebrows.

    Anyone got pics of Jak and Daxter manga?

    Re: CoroCoro Comic and the kodomo demographic

    I'm curious about the Zoids: Generation manga.

    I've seen that Super Mario-kun long time ago. I thought that was an odd comic.

    Available? You mean where you can buy the manga? If so I don't really know. Sorry.

    Re: CoroCoro Comic and the kodomo demographic

    i used to read Coro Coro a lot when i was a kid. (up till 6th grade, I always bought CoroCoro instead of WSJ).
    they were pretty entertaining. it would be really nice if i could have read the end of some of the series, like Coroket, Rockmen, Duel Masters, etc.

    Re: CoroCoro Comic and the kodomo demographic

    So Corocoro comics just started up yet another spin-off magazine! This one is called Corocoro Aniki (コロコロアニキ), and it looks like it will stick around for a while with bi-monthly releases. The first release was on October 15th, 2014.

    I guess it sold really well for the first issue. I guess having tons of extras and videogame dlc codes to "Puzzle & Dragon" is the way to children's hearts these days.

    Here's the line-up in Japanese (some previews are on their website & twitter):
    こしたてつひろ「爆走兄弟レッツ&ゴー!! Return Racers!!」
    武井宏之「拝啓 徳田ザウルス先生」
    のむらしんぼ「コロコロ創刊伝説」
    石原まこちん「3名様が狩る。」
    萬屋不死身之介「持ちこみ・オブ・ザ・デッド」
    瀬戸カズヨシ「パズル&ドラゴンズ 誕生物語」
    藤崎聖人「デュエル・マスターズ覇王伝 ガチ!!」
    うさくん「フェアリー・バトル」
    吉田正紀「フューチャーカード バディファイト ダークゲーム異伝」
    小田扉「怒れ!マカベくん」
    カネダカズヤ「死.tv」
    コーへー「3PIECE」
    河合じゅんじ「かっとばせ!キヨハラくん」
    まえだくん「ヒャッハーだよ♪ふなっしー」
    石塚真一「BLUE GIANT」
    曽山一寿「でんぢゃらすリーマン邪」


    But what I find super interesting is that Hiroyuki Takei (Shaman King, Ultimo, Jumbor) is now drawing for the magazine. He's got a short series going now (4 pages in first issue) called "Dear Tokuda Zaurus-sensei" (拝啓 徳田ザウルス先生). And then coming in March issue he'll be working on a larger spin-off (possibly 1-2 volumes). And... depending on how you read that first page (based on the dates...) it looks like he might be ending his Jumbor and Ultimo manga series in 2015. It's looking like he might be completely jumping publishers away from Shuiesha to Shogakukan!? Very interesting if that's the case...

    (For some more specifics on Dear Tokuda Zaurus-sensei, I have some of it written up on the Patch-Cafe website)
    That huge Hiroyuki Takei fan, who's has been around for a long, long time....
