    I hope so, I'd really like to at least read chapter 1.

    Evening, not Afternoon. Evening is not an unknown magazine. Shamo, Battle Angel Alita, Yondemasuyo, Azazel-san, Moyasimon, Azazel-san, and plenty of other known manga were serialized in Evening. Raw providers don't scan the entire magazine, like they would for Jump, but the type of groups that would want to release an Evening manga probably would not use mag raws anyway. If someone does scanlate Inu Yashiki it will be from tankobon raws. I have to agree that this doesn't seem like the type of series anyone would translate.

    Yeah, I know it's in Evening. I was saying it doesn't have the titles that Afternoon has, that's all. No idea what circulation is for the Kodansha trio, but Afternoon always seemed the most popular.

    And yeah, not sure about the magazine raws, should have clarified. If it was someone unknown behind it and not Oka and Yamamoto, then I'd doubt it'd get much attention.

    Re: General Manga News and Announcements

    I suppose so, yeah. Afternoon has better name recognition online. Probably the result of four or five manga. It's more of a hipster magazine. Ah My Goddess, Vinland Saga and Historie are not the norm, for Afternoon (Musishi and Blade of the Immortal are closer) Morning and Evening are the more mainstream magazines.

    Re: General Manga News and Announcements

    For anyone interested, there is Japanese manga variety program, called Mandou Kobayashi, has presented their own manga award for 2013. BUT, this award is mostly decided by Kendou Kobayashi (MC of the program; popular comedian in Japan and well known for manga/anime otaku) himself, so this awards doesn't really have much power and recognition on the manga industry......I think.

    So, here is a list:

    Tsuini Kanketsu Shou (this award is for series that serialized long time and finally ended on 2013):
    - Mugen no Juunin from Afternoon

    Ore wa Sukidatta Shou (this award is for series that axed early but Kobayashi enjoyed it):
    - Cross Manage from Weekly Shounen Jump

    Kitai no Shinrensai Shou (this award is for series that started on 2013):
    - Yankee Juku e Iku from Weekly Young Magazine

    Best Supporting Male Character Award:
    - Chan to Mario (characters from Tobaku Datenroku Kaiji Kazuya-hen from Weekly Young Magazine)

    Best Supporting Female Character Award:
    - Yachi (character from Haikyuu!! from Weekly Shounen Jump)

    Best Hairstyle Award:
    - Higashikata Joushuu (character from Jojolion from Ultra Jump)

    Best Surprise Award (this award is for the character that brought biggest surprise to the readers):
    - Uumen Umeda (character from Toriko from Weekly Shounen Jump)

    Toriaezu Mada Yondenai Shou (this award is for series which is popular but Kendou Kobayashi hasn't read yet):
    - Marmalade Boy Little from Cocohana

    Imasara Hajimete Yondara Omoshirokatta Shou (this award is for series which is seriazlie for long time, but Kendou Kobayashi recently started to read and he enjoyed it):
    - Glass no Kamen from Hana to Yume

    Sorosoro Rensai Saikai Shite Kudasai Shou (this award is for series which Kendou Kobayashi wants to resume):
    - Hunter x Hunter from Weekly Shounen Jump

    Grand Prix:
    - Kingdom from Weekly Young Jump

    If anyone want to see the full episode, then here is the link:

    Ousama Game artist Renda Hitori will launch a new series in the third issue of Futabasha's Manga Action seinen anthology, titled Okitenemuru

    Spoiler: Pics show

    Quote Quote:
    Kanata and his friend Tokiji are ordinary teenagers in modern Japan. Mysterious deaths have begun to occur in their city, where the victim's head will transform into an animal face and explode. There are rumors about these strange incidents, but one day it happens at Kanata's school. Kanata is caught up in the incident and gains the special ability to "remove his limiter". This allows him to greatly enhance a single ability of his, but after he uses it, another ability will go out of control. He encounters a mysterious, beautiful woman in a black skin-tight combat suit named Shiki. She forces Kanata and Tokiji to become deeply involved in these incidents. Just what is going on? What mysterious organization is behind this!? A world-spanning conspiracy begins to unfold.

    Re: General Manga News and Announcements

    It's popular. Don't forget that popularity is not an on/off, binary designation. The manga industry is massive, earning ¥270.70 billion (roughly $260 million or €191 million) in 2013. 494,116,000 volumes of manga were released in 2013. There are a lot of different levels of popularity, and a lot of manga marketed at specific niches. Popularity has never been the simple, linear, sales based hierarchy that is discussed in the Oricon thread. It is heavily nuanced and highly varied. There is a lot of space below One Piece, and a lot of different manga that appeal to a wide variety of people.

    Giant Killing and Haikyuu are not marketed towards the same audience. Giant Killing is written with readers in their early 30's in mind. They are not really analogous. Haikyuu probably has a nice amount of merchandizing already, as a successful Jump manga. You could probably find something by searching Amazon Japan.
