    Why can't Ashirogi get 1st place?

    Aside from pointing out the obvious, that if they get 1st place and manage to pull an Eiji and keep that spot for a long enough time, they would get anime, why is it that they just can not reach 1st place. 3rd - yes; 2nd - yes, but 1st - NO. Logic?

    That's not all. It seems that everyone around them can. I mean... even Takahama...

    So, what do you think about this?

    I think they should be able to to get 1st on chapters such as when trying to beat Eiji/Nanamine etc. When they SET UP everything for it, when they do a chapter month before.
    I don't want them to get winning streak for more chapters, of course that probably will happen near the end of series.

    But yeah, I don't get how Takahama the assistant manages to beat them in all out...

    Why is that, I have no answer.

    It does not make any sense at all.The problem is that Ohba hyped this whole idea about getting number 1 too much at the beginning,which is why it would seem rather cheap if they easily managed to do it now.Sure,them getting first from time to time would absolutely make sense,but I think Ohba doesn't know how to deal with this 'special' feeling or something.

    i have a feeling that the manga that gonna bring them first will be death note. it will be a perfect homage and kinda like an auto biography of these two author who bought us death note. It goes so well with this series theme. Non mainstream theme on a main stream manga. they did pcp and now this new manga about demon. what you guys say

    I have a feeling Reversi is the Bakuman version of Deathnote.
