    Not much of a news story right now.... but probably anyone who reads this thread would like to know...

    The Editor in Chief for Weekly Shonen Jump now has an official Twitter. He also posts entirely in English. Here's his account: http://twitter.com/#!/SASAKI_Hisashi
    That huge Hiroyuki Takei fan, who's has been around for a long, long time....

    Wow so Tokyopop is calling in quits huh? Can't say I'm sad. They mostly published manga nobody bought or cared about and had god-awful translations.

    ↑ Funny how a Livejournal community is feeling sad despite the flaws Tokyo Pop had. XD Aren't most of the series they publish shoujo?

    I find it inconvenient that they're shutting down. There are still ongoing manga that I hope some other publisher will pick up.

    I can die happily now that Mirai Nikki is getting an anime this fall. http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news...irmed-for-fall
    Let's hope it will be a big improvement from the OAD.

    Akamatsu discusses online manga

    Now THIS is what should be a wake-up call by now to ALL the publishers in Japan. Mayu Shinjo, the first mangaka to post his manga on J-comi, has racked in well sums of revenues. Not only that, it's worth about the same price as an average mangaka would get paid for to work.

    I just hope the English version is out soon. (So that we can also spam the site to bring back mangas we liked and get publishers to continue the story)

    Quote Quote:
    Akumatsu claims that editors at magazines running major titles are too fearful of making corrections to those major titles. As a result, the editors are not developing the necessary skills to guide new artists.
    I'm a bit confused about this. So does this mean it basically says that editors just go with whatever the mangaka does??

    Well, it's certainly interesting, that's for sure. And now I'm not sure whether Kishi's writing is his own fault or the editors' fault. <__<

    It's a bit sad that Akamatsu doesn't plan on releasing serialized series. Although that doesn't mean we can't use it to force Publishers to give a cancelled mangaka another try though. (Double Arts, anyone??) hell, for all I know, we could even have the "undeserved/underrated" mangakas to publish their manga there. Who knows, maybe our cancelled mangakas can go independently and live off of J-comi.

    I read that link, it only said that Kodansha will be republishing the 19 first volumes, which apparently had been published elsewhere. Not that the manga is re-starting However they're saying they have good hopes on the manga being back soon since that apparently means the two authors have solved whatever it was that caused the series to go on hiatus.

    Remake of Tezuka Osamu's Black Jack! The remake will be done by Iwaaki Hitoshi (Parasyte, Historie) and Nakayama Masaaki (PS -Rashōmon-).

    I've only read a little of Black Jack, but it'll be interesting to see their take on this Tezuka classic

    Re: General Manga News and Announcements

    We had a bit of a Tezuka Osamu remake with Urasawa-sensei's Pluto so it would be interesting to see how the Black Jack of the 21st century will turn out.

    I really like this concept because we can see how the contemporary mangaka interpret these classics. It would be interesting to compare and contrast as well.

    It is confirmed that Business Jump and Super Jump will end at upcoming October. Also, there going to be new seinen magazine Shueisha that will succeed Business Jump and Super Jump (well, more like the combination of those two magazine), and it is planning to released as semi-monthly magazine.

    Re: General Manga News and Announcements

    Nice to see some common sense on the part of publishers for a change. Business Jump and Super Jump had the same audience, merging them makes total sense. Super Jump used to be the intermediary between Weekly Shounen Jump and Weekly Young Jump, the role SQ now enjoys. But Super Jump has been a salary man magazine for ages now.

    Nice to see Shueisha starting to get the seinen side of the house in order. They're still Shogakukan, Kodansha, Enterbrain, Seirinkogeisha, Square/Enix, and Ohta Books dorky third cousin but there is signs for hope. While it is not technically seinen, the mangaka serialized in ("pure manga magazine") Jump X lead me to believe there is a possibility Shueisha is attempting to create a Big Comic Spirits or Afternoon of their own.
