    WSJ Pirate Oumagadoki Doubutsuen by Horikoshi Kouhei


    Oumagadoki Doubutsuen by HORIKOSHI Kouhei
    Serialization started in WSJ #32/2010.

    About the series
    Aoi Hana is a clumsy high school student who's famous for screwing things up. But she's had enough of it and wants to change. How could there be any better way to this than finding herself a part-time job at the local zoo of Oumagadoki city? - After all, Hana loves nothing more than animals.
    When she arrives at the Oumagadoki Zoo and gets to meet its director she's knocked right off her socks. The director turns out to be a cruel and egotistic man named Shiina who was turned into a rabbit by a curse! In order to change said witch spell he has to dedicate his life to animals and create the world's most amazing place for them to stay - that's the Oumagadoki Zoo!
    But reality looks quite different. The Oumagadoki Zoo is a filthy hole that's going south. How is this place supposed to ever become number one in the world!?

    That's easy: Take Hana's loves for animals, Shiina's mystical "powers" he achieved from his curse and a bunch of shape-shifting and talking animals!

    About the author
    Born 1986 in the prefecture Aichi Horikoshi first attracted attention in the second half of 2006 when he entered Shueisha's 72th Tezuka Award for Newcomers with his one shot "Nukegara" and made it to the final six, where he gained himself an "Honorable Mention".
    Various short stories in Shueisha's Akamaru JUMP followed over the years until he published his one shot "Oumagadoki Doubutsuen" in issue #2/2010 of Weekly Shounen JUMP.

    Bakanhaven confirmed to me that they are going to do a scanlation. Going by the one shot, the raws and the translations; I can only say that I am glad that this manga got serialized. I hope it won't be too mainstream and it will be something different like Beelzebub. The mangaka is very young
    The biggest virtue is to support these Seven Deadly Sins in their fight!!!

    Can't wait for the scanlation The one-shot was fantastic. I agree with Koen, I hope its not very mainstream. Mainstream enough to survive but off-beat like the one-shot as well. And he is young He's younger than you Koen

    I'm kind of feeling like Shiina and Aoi's relationship looks similar to Neuro and Yako's relationship.

    Wow, that's a good point. That association didn't come to me at first, but now that you mention it...


    Just read chapter 3 from Vic and it's yet another nice one. Good comedy moments and I totally love the Shiina <-> Hana interaction. His ways of torturing her never fail to amuse me.^^

    And I agree with Koen and Drmke, mainstream enough to live on, yet original enough to keep us refreshed sounds like a good formula for the series! I hope JUMP readers won't neglect it.

    Finally got a chance to read this, love it so far.

    Even taking Yotsuya in to account it's probably my favorite of 2010 right now.

    Enjoy!
    It's in english.

    The oneshot was better. I like the characters personality more.
    In the series somehow they more simpler, perhaps for character development. :/
    And i also like more the oneshot's plot.

    But still it seems a very good series.

    Two scanlations came out. I love this manga and I hope it'll keep the story it is giving us at this moment. At some point, the mangaka will have to come up with something new but these introduction chapters aren't as boring as in some other manga. They have good pace and they are funny.

    I hope scanlations will catch up because the animals changing in some human looking form when the zoo closes, looks fantastic

    Yeah I like the oneshot a lot back when it came out earlier this year. The series so far has been cool, neat art, interesting characters. But what I like most about it is the "goofiness"....the animals transforming into humanoids, but it isn't taken seriously. So, I find the aesthetics of it appealing......the story, the jury is still out on that, as it is with most series after only two chapters.

    I like the design when the animals transformed into humanoid. I especially like Takahiro, the hawk with headphone.
    But Shiina kinda too much I think. Although he thinks of the animals as his friends he abuses them too much. Putting a giraffe neck through an elephant really overdoing it. The mangaka may want to make it looks humorous, but it doesn't feel right.
    Also, how the story intent to be developed? They already have 30 animals in the zoo, wouldn't that limit the story development? They will only have animal chapter each time. I think it will be better if it start from Shiina and Hana collecting the animal from zero.
    From all the chapters until now, probably I like Chita's story the most and hate the fliers story the most.

    lol, definitely a Yako/Neuro relationship. I'm glad a new series came out with something as similar as that.

    So far I'm liking the story, the art is very exquisite in my opinion. Can't wait to see how it ranks when it reaches it's 8th. I could see it develop into mainstream, but I don't know how far it could actually go if they stick to the same zoo. We'll just have to see. Can't wait for more scans.

    It's a shame this series ranked so low on its first real run. I kind of hoped that this would be 'fresh' enough for Jump readers to actually give it a decent ranking. ]:

    Let's hope it goes up as time goes by.
    Oh, and if they kick this, but keep SWOT, I'll lose all hope in Jump...
