    Re: Bakuman 125 Discussion / 126 Prediction

    what a change of subject. ^^

    PCP not being a anime is just an excuse for the main characters still have a goal in this history.

    Re: Bakuman 125 Discussion / 126 Prediction

    Regarding the to-translate-or-not-translate-titles/moves issue, well, let's just say to each his own, shall we? There are people who prefer it in Japanese and others who don't, but I think the most important is that it is consistent throughout the chapter. I still have yet to read the scanlation, but if there were some left untranslated, then that was a mistake on MRI's part and as a part of the team and on behalf of them I apologize

    I do agree with murtas that essentially, the main reason why PCP isn't getting an anime is because it's a ploy to keep Bakuman going. Though of course Ohba-sensei could also choose to pull the "yay we get an anime, but boo Azuki isn't the heroine, we need another new manga!" thing someone here mentioned before...

    Unfortunately, the only way to measure what a better manga is in the Bakuman-verse, is by the TOC rankings. They aren't even showing us how well the tankoubons are selling because it's assumed a series that ranks high on the TOCs sells well (which isn't always true - look at Nurarihyon no Mago). So essentially, Ashirogi have to create a new series that ranks above Crow in the TOCS and that ALSO gets an anime that ALSO has Azuki as the heroine before they can consider their goal reached and Bakuman will end. It's kinda silly, but that's about the only quantitative and qualitative measure there is to use.

    Oh and now with arcs like this recent Nanamine one, the story is being extended by stuff that (at least thus far) seems fairly unrelated to the overarching plot. Anyone wanna wage some bets on what the next arc will bring?

    Now that the anime has been greenlit for a second season, the manga basically has to continue so we may get more arcs that are "filler-ish." I'm guessing will get some stuff about the characters but away from the manga making? We need more Fukuda action...

    Anyone find it odd that True Human's run so long...? Good job Shizuka keeping it going. Maybe we'll get an arc where it's canceled and Shizuka has to deal with the heartbreak?

    Re: Bakuman 125 Discussion / 126 Prediction

    Not really, just because the anime has got a second season doesn't mean the manga has to go on and on. It's not like there's insufficient material for a second season. In fact, there's already enough material in the 125 chapters of Bakuman to fill nearly 3 seasons! The current season is about to end and it has only covered until around chapter 30. This season will most likely end with Ashirogi getting their serialization.

    I do agree it would be nice to see the spotlight on Fukuda for a change, though We've been having a lot of Hiramaru and Aoki, and I guess Ohba's forgotten than Fukuda was also rather popular back in the day.

    I don't think there will be an arc dedicated just to TH getting canceled, but it could feature in an upcoming arc and a few panels/pages dedicated to Shizuka thinking it's "game over" again If any new rivals are going to be introduced, some currently ongoing manga will have to go and Shizuka's will probably be a candidate.

    Yes, really. It's called BUSINESS! Which Jump is very successful at.

    Re: Bakuman 125 Discussion / 126 Prediction

    They are But what I'm saying is that the second season being greenlit is not the reason why the story has to be extended. If you told me a third or fourth season had been greenlit, then yes maybe. But a second season? No, because like I already said, there's more than enough material to make a second season as it is.

    Of course, one might say that Shueisha has to keep the hype going by having the manga ongoing as well, but in that case it's just never going to end, especially with the rate at which chapters are being "converted" to episodes (for other Jump series, it's typically 1ep=3ch, but for Bakuman it's like 1ep=1.5ch or less). Besides, Death Note's anime started after the manga ended, so it's not an argument that is necessarily true. Either way, if this keeps up, and more people lose interest, then that's not going to be good for Shueisha either :/

    I don't think Bakuman is that important to Jump's bottomline.

    Re: Bakuman 125 Discussion / 126 Prediction

    It's not as important as One Piece, definitely But it is one of the better sellers in Jump right now - OP, Naruto, Bleach, Reborn, Gintama, Bakuman and Mago are the ones that sell the most right now. If people are going to lose interest and stop reading, surely it is in Jump's interest to find a new series (though the question would be whether they can ) that can take its place rather than keep a series on when its popularity is on the decline.

    Anyway, discussion of Bakuman's popularity doesn't belong in the chapter discussion thread, but if you'd like to discuss it further feel free to take it to the hangout


    There was a missing page in chapter 124 (was missing in the raw...), pg 13, and it affected part of the translation of pg 3 of 125 as well, albeit very slightly. Please check it out: chapter 124 and 125

    I think versions 2s of these 2 chapters should be out by MRI soon enough.

    That guy looks wayyyy too smug. Period.

    I don't care if he got #1 in every category. He's still too smug. :P

    Looks like things are not over yet. Well, people did think the arc was going too fast.

    Re: Bakuman 126 Spoiler Thread

    Here's the spoiler:
    I'm not going to got through all the steps because it's too much work. This is a spoiler thread so why do the spoilers need to be hidden? Anyway, the MOD can fix this if they want.

    spoiler summaryVerification: Confirmed

    Shujin is 120% confident he can win. He explains it basically with "too many cooks in the kitchen ruin the meal." He later says that it's possible to create great manga the way Nanamine does but in order for it to happen, all the advisers would need to be angels and the mangaka would need to be a god.

    Meanwhile, Nanamine is reassuring his peeps that the series is doing fine. But Nakai overhears the editor saying how the latest chapter came in 16th. He vows to do something by telling the advisers to try harder!

    The advisers have started having meetings without Nanamine where they complain about him. Some doubt he is being honest and are calling him Uso-mine.(Uso=Lie) Some are saying they will quit if he is lying to them. Nakai sneaks in and tells them the real ranking and that they need to work harder. They all quit in disgust with Nanamine's deception. Then Kosugi arrives with the results. PCP=3rd, Yuuigi=19th. Nobody is voting for both of them anymore.

    PS:
    Nakai-Hey, wanna go out for dinner?
    Girl Assistant-No way, I don't want people thinking I have a weird dad.
