    Just read a brief summary of Muvl-Luv Alternative and it does resemble Shingeki no Kyojin's setting.

    But, most people saying that it is more like received influence from Muv-Luv, not copied. I wonder why Isayama wrote it as he copied.

    Did he trace art, like Suetsugu Yuki did when she drew Eden no Hana?

    I don't think he copied artwork; it is most likely a plot.

    He definitely did not copy the plot. No Titans in Muv Luv, as far as I know. In Muv Luv Unlimited the world is nearly destroyed by invading Aliens, until whats left of humanity is forced to fight back. Not that this is such an original plot, there are plenty of comics, movies, books, and TV shows where humanity is nearly wiped out by invaders but heroically fight back. And it's not like Shingeki otherwise has that much else in common with MuvLuv. MuvLuv is not particularly violent, not particularly serious, and not particularly deep. Unless the actual art work, themes, meaning, plot, and premise are ignored MuvLuv and Shingeki do not have very much in common. With the lone exception of an invasion putting humanity in dire peril trope that has been used in science fiction/fantasy since the 19th century.

    If anyone is wondering MuLuv was not originally a manga. It's a series of adult visual novels that were later adapted into manga. The part in question, MuvLuv Unlimited, was the second part of the original game. The first part of the game was a romance (as with most visual novels) called MuvLuv Extra. MuvLuv Unlimited put the characters from the first part in a sci-fi setting. It was still a moe-fest. Don't go looking for connections to Shingeki. It might have inspired the setting for Shingeki, a world where humanity was on the brink of extinction, past that they have nothing in common. It would be a bit far fetched to believe this would have any impact on Shinegki's popularity.

    The problem is Isayama (the author of Shingeki), himself, wrote it as he copied. I don't know why he wrote that.

    Niwango, the parent company of the Nico Nico Douga video service, is launching the free digital magazine Kadokawa Nico Nico Ace with Kadokawa Shoten. The magazine will update every Tuesday with chapters of Sora no Otoshimono, Daisuki Desu!! Mahō Tenshi Kosumasu, Tiger & Bunny, Deadman Wonderland, Sgt.

    Issue 5 of Jump Kai has sold all of copies, so it was decided to be reprinted. It looks like Shaman King's popularity is still strong.

    One Piece Sells Record 38 Million Manga Volumes in 2011

    Quote Quote:
    The marketing survey firm Oricon reported on Thursday that Eiichiro Oda's One Piece pirate manga set a record for the most volumes of manga sold in one year since Oricon began posting its ranking charts in 2008. During the period of November 22, 2010 to November 20, 2011, One Piece sold 37,996,373 copies.

    One Piece also took the top four spots for single manga volumes sold during the same time period. Volume 61 sold 3,382,588 copies, volume 62 sold 3,207,568 copies, volume 63 sold 3,073,175 copies, and volume 64 sold 2,652,700 copies. It is the third year in a row that One Piece volumes have taken the top four spots in that category. These four One Piece volumes were also the only manga volumes this year to sell more than 2 million copies.

    In 2008, One Piece sold 5,956,540 copies, and in 2009, it sold 14,721,241 copies. Last year, it sold 32,343,809 copies.

    2011's second best-selling manga series was Naruto with 6,874,840 copies, followed by Blue Exorcist's 5,223,712 copies.

    Quote Quote:
    The manga creator team Clamp posted an urgent notice on Thursday to announce that one of its four members has been diagnosed with lumbar compression fracture. The lower back condition was the result of sitting constantly in a chair for long hours

    On the doctor's orders, the afflicted member is undergoing about a half year of rest and recuperation, but Clamp acknowledged that it would be unreasonable to do so with the team's two current manga series and various other duties.

    The team thought over the situation for several days and concluded that if the afflicted members does not commit to rest and recovery, this may lead to her dealing with a future of continued pain and a shortened career.

    The members anticipate lower page counts on their serialized works and delays in some of their other work, and asked for everyone's understanding in the matter. Clamp concluded the notice by asking people to watch their own health.
    Sorry to hear that but they've been serving us awesome series for we'll over a decade now all of them could use some rest.
