    Speaking of Kintoki it was nothing special, Bankara was good, Bench is the worst but it is not a surprise
    That's a good joke there. Anyways none of the one-shots were particularly good, if anycase I enjoyed Bankara the best because it was funny for the most part even though it was Sorachi just re-using his trademark style Gintama humor and it wasn't particularly noteworthy. Kintoki was the most disappointing but I expect nothing less from current Toriyama. Moon Walker was terrible if it gets serialized it'll be just another fangirl pandering spectacle like PoT was. Bench was "meh" definitely need some improvement but it's no surprise that the bulk of haters just hate it for the fact that Kishimoto did it. There's still one more to go and I can't say I'm all for it

    I'm not sure the age really that matters, though. Akimoto is 57 and he's still serializing in weekly magazine, and Mizushima Shinji (author of Dokaben and Abu-san) is 71 (currently oldest mangaka) and he's currently serializing two series (one from weekly and other from monthly).

    Furthermore, Hara Tetsuo (illustrator of Hokuto no Ken) still made his serialization, despite of being blind on one eye.

    There are actually two one shots that have yet to be scanlated Poo by Usuta Kyousuke(Jaguar) and Succeed by Akimoto Osamu (Kochikame). However all six of the stories have been released. Moonwalker and Poo being the two most likely to become series imo, unless Toriyama is really itching to have Kintoki serialized. Three of the six authors have currently long running and successful series. Usuta series has ended and Takeshi only has a monthly series in square atm. Toriyama...well I believe he'll do w/e he feels like, if he wants a series i would guarantee he'll get it.

    Actually I really liked Kintoki. It has a really simple plot, but that's not really what make Akira's series that good. It's the feeling you get from reading it, which is really good.

    1. Kintoki
    2. Bench
    3. Bankara
    4. Moon Walker LTD (Think he's more fit for a sports manga - Bad storytelling, but awesome art)

    Still not read: Poh and Succeed

    If Jump editors planned to do super legends one shots, then I think they should do one shots by: Akimoto; Toriyama; Inoue; Oda; and Kishimoto.

    This would be amazing in theory, but the authors have to agree to participate as well.

    True. Even though Naruto is heading for an ending, Kishimoto wouldn't "decide" what to do next already now. And neither Sorachi or Akimoto probably isn't going to do something new.

    I don't think Konomi would do something at the same time he's doing Prince of Tennis though. I don't know why it is monthly now, but isn't it because he didn't want the weekly pressure of doing one chapter a week?

    Usuta on the other hand would probably do something new soon. Think you are quite right about Toriyama. He could probably do what he want. I would love to see another long weekly running manga by Toriyama!

    Yeah I thought Moon Walker was ungodly terrible, sorry to say.

    As things currently stand, I'd probably rank them Bankara > Kintoki > Bench > Moon Walker. Really wanna see AKimoto's and Usuta's though, seems like they kind of got lost in the mix.

    Nothing interesting... big special to promote Strongest JUMP.

    As for the Super Legends One-shots, is someone planning to do Usuta's? I haven't read it yet but if it turns out good and I'm bored I might consider doing it, seeing how I've caught up with Oumaga on JUMP.

    ...Holy shit so it was a manga of pure manliness being drawn out of pure manliness.

    As for the one shots, I liked Moon Walker the best. It had a good story, characters and setting. As for the "yaoi" undertones, so having two male main characters makes your story yaoi?

    It's just a pure bromance!

    Bench felt awful to me, and Kintoki felt bland. Bankara was amazing though.

    Wow you guys are tough customers.

    I agree that Kintoki was kinda boring and nothing new, but the other ones were good imo.
    Moonwalker was very long and the story was clever and new. That, and the art was great as usual.
    Bench was just fine too, in my opinion. Nothing special, but I honestly don't get the "KISHI FAILS LULULUL" comments... It's a regular sports manga and it has a good set of characters. They all had their background stories and stuff, and the main character had that "Shonen Jump Determination" thing going on.
    Haven't read Bankara yet, though, so I can't say anything about that.

    Anyway, yeah. You guys? Tough customers.

    Moon Walker was actually pretty good. I didnt think it was THAT bad
    1. Kintoki
    2. Bankara
    3. Bench
    4. Moon Walker

    Overall, these were all pretty good. Kintoki gave me a nostalgic feeling. it was like reading Dragon Ball all over again. I really want this to get serialized.
