    It's pretty good. It really caught me, I want to read what follows.

    The drawing resembles Naruto, and it has some elements of Dragon Ball, but still feels like a fresh new story.

    I hope that the japaneses give it a chance.

    Yeah, that's exactly what I thought. Ikkyuu's orange theme resembles the Naruto vibe and also the setting of the story. While the Wish Seals that grants wishes when collected and the fact that it is scattered all over the world is just like Dragon Ball.

    I also love the humor of the author (Kenta) and how Yuya interprets it is very good.

    Ikkyuu has potential, I'd like to read more chapters before judging. Interesting seeing a Jump hero who's primary "weapon" is his intelligence. Houshin Engi is the last series I can remember where the hero relied on his wits, not strength or super powers, to win.

    Re: [NEW] Kikai Banashi Hanasaka Ikkyuu by Kenta Komiyama and Yuya Kawada

    Pretty interesting start. I like it. I also found the first chapter way better than the one shot because in the first chapter, the first encounter between Ikkyuu and Karma has been told. + 1 and the second chapter immediately tells the interesting main story of the wish seals scattered around the world. another +1. The art is nice and it somewhat, not completely, reminds me of naruto indeed. The setting is interesting and the interaction between our protagonists Ikkyuu and Karma is really great to laugh. How Karma used the story of the villain and used the reference of half a man

    We always have to be careful with WSJ readers and their taste. But I'll read this

    It looks like their are enough weak new series to give some Ikkyuu some cushion. Grim and Sengoku are definitely on the way out. I assume something else will join them, hopefully not Ikkyuu. At the least, it has potential. There is something a little more intelligent and introspective than the run of the mill Jump action manga.

    Hmmm, I get the feeling that the gathering of the seals is just a minor part of the story. It'll depend whether the manga will succeed and that's how I look at it. The third chapter was okay, I didn't like the first part of it but the second part was good. Karma has some hidden motives. It is obvious that he is using Ikkyuu for an own scheme

    Re: [NEW] Kikai Banashi Hanasaka Ikkyuu by Kenta Komiyama and Yuya Kawada

    Assuming success, collecting the wish seals does not seem involved enough for a long run shounen. Long arcs could be built out of each collecting each seal, but I don't think that would be consequential enough to carry the story. I imagine that being somewhat like One Piece if there was nothing deeper than moving from island to island, collecting treasure. Given the fact that the writers were daring enough to create a hero with strength and no super powers in Shounen Jump, I can imagine them having something deeper in mind.

    Karma is the archetypical trickster guide. It remains to be scene whether he is benevolent, or malevolent. The magic surrounding the wish seals likely prevents him from restoring them himself. What remains to be seen is whether he is an evil force, who will turn on Ikkyuu, or a kind but scheming force, developing Ikkyuu strength and creating a potent ally.

    The answer in the first chapter kinda surprised me.I thought it would be the sword itself that can't be cut by the sword.It's rather obvious,but still...

    Anyway,i like that this is so non-mainstream,so even though it hasn't really impressed me yet,i hope it will become successful in JUMP in order to get the magazine away from this battle-oriented style.

    Definitely a typical riddle, once you know the answer it seems so simple but is not obvious at all until someone else says it.

    I'm waiting for the unscanlated chapters before passing full judgement. I like it enough to keep reading, which is more than I can say for many other recent Jump series.

    Amazing how close this art leans towards naruto's art. When the inner owner was shown, I could have sworn to think about an uchiha

    That aside, this chapter was good in building up to a new quest. I like this story a lot because mirrrors have always had a horror feeling because of these particular stories. I don't expect the monster to be defeated easy, neither do I expected it to be defeated difficult. Anyway, I hope that that the fifth chapter is going to be released soon because I like it

    Great work guys
