    Hahahaha. Most likelihood would be quitting the assistant job. Screw working for the guy who is married to the girl you like.

    But unlike you guys, I can't picture a married Hiramaru for some reason. How will Yoshida manipulate him afterwards? Where will we get our comic relief from? D:

    Nakai might even stay trying to destroy their relationship.Or at least attempt to influence it in a negative way.Lots of awkward moments could arise from that.

    As for the comic relief,I could actually see Ko manipulating him.Hahaha,this has so much potential.

    Re: Bakuman 160 Spoiler Thread

    Yeah, it was nice to see Aoki say yes. I'm still confused about what they were talking about in the chapter though. Were they talking about popularity or volume sales or what? I saw one part that indicated volume sales, but what were the 5 and 10 parts about?

    Hey, it's Zombie Gun: http://www.mangareader.net/zombie-hunter

    Re: Bakuman 160 Spoiler Thread

    I have not understood if he was able to do the proposal or not???
    I think that it's too early (not for the manga, but for him in the manga, counting that he only after two years was able to ask her to go on a date with him).

    Re: Bakuman 160 Spoiler Thread

    spoiler summary
    - Aoki accepts Hiramaru's proposal.

    - Volume 1 of Reversi and Zombie Gun goes on sale.

    - After 2 reprints, Zombie Gun reaches 900,000 prints. Reversi after 2 reprints only manage 380,000.



    spoiler translation
    Chapter 160: Good Luck and 900,000.


    Yoshida: (Good luck, Hiramaru!!)

    Yoshida: Argh! You stupid idiot! You're sitting across from each other again, why don't you sit by her side!

    Yoshida: (Then...then again, since it's a proposal. If he proposes like that, it's probably better to sit across from each other.)

    Aoki: To go on this twice, you really like riding the ferris wheel, eh.

    It's so pretty, I like riding it too.

    Hiramaru: Well it's not that I really like it or something. And it's not afraid of heights or anything.

    But if I must say, it's probably claustrophobia.

    Aoki: ?

    Aoki: ..... [when Hiramaru is stripping]

    Aoki: Uhh...is it really hot or something?

    Hiramaru: Not really...because it's November already...

    Hiramaru: (Can't find it. Still can't find it....the 50 million yen ring...)

    Aoki: What's the matter...? Hiramaru-san, you've been acting so weird today.

    Hiramaru: Uhh. No I haven't.

    Hiramaru: (Uwahh, Yuri-tan is looking this way, and she's looking with such a strange glance)

    (If I can just find the ring right now and propose...)

    (Then again, maybe it's already impossible....ahhh...it's impossible!!)

    Aoki: You're not happy coming to the amusement park with me?

    Hiramaru: Huh?! I'm happy, of course I'm happy.

    Hiramaru: B-but...the ring...

    Aoki: ?! Ring?

    Hiramaru: N-no...nothing...r-ring...last night...oh right, last night I was so excited I couldn't sleep...

    Not...excited...it was like that time before going on fieldtrip in elementary...the venue was the same, an amusement park too....

    And the refreshments we brought along wasn't worth 300 yen? I think it was kinda like this...

    Aoki: ............

    Aoki: (Ring...he wouldn't be...)

    Yoshida: Ughh...almost to the top now....

    Yoshida: What the heck are you doing, Hiramaru. No matter how you look at it, seems like he hasn't proposed yet. What the heck are you doing

    Aoki: I-it's so pretty outside.

    Hiramaru: Uh...it is?

    Yoshida: Ah!

    Aoki: (Ehh)

    Aoki: ............

    Yoshida: Oh crap, I've been spotted.......

    Aoki: Wasn't that Yoshida-san just now..? Why would Yoshida-san be here?

    Aoki: ...

    Aoki: It was the same as that time. Yoshida-san is worried about Hiramaru-san? If that's the case...

    Aoki: (Ring...Hiramaru-san's appearance at an amusement park today, dressed in an all white suit...)

    (...the worried Yoshida-san coming here.)

    Aoki: !!!

    Aoki: ...

    Aoki: Hiramaru-san.

    Hiramaru: Yes.

    Aoki: Is there something you want to say?

    Hiramaru: Ehh.

    Aoki: Hiramaru-san.

    Hiramaru; Y-Yes...

    Aoki: Good luck.

    Hiramaru; Ah...

    Aoki: Good luck and say it.

    Hiramaru: (Good luck and say it)

    (Does she already know what I want to say??)

    Aoki: Good luck...

    Hiramaru: R-right...

    Hiramaru: ....

    Hiramaru: (Ehhh??? My head is just a blank right now, what am I supposed to say!)

    Yoshida: Ahhh, it's already past the peak now.

    No matter what you say, riding it again would be impossible now. Hiramaru~!!

    Hiramaru: (I-I have to quickly say it. Yuri-tan already said 'Good luck'...)

    Yoshida: What the heck are you doing, Hiramaru!! You're already at the end of the ride~

    Hiramaru: YU..YURI-TAN!

    Aoki: Y-Yes?

    Hiramaru: Ple-please...

    Hiramaru: PLEASE GIVE ME HAPPINESS.

    Aoki: ...give Hiramaru-san happiness...

    Hiramaru: Yes...

    Aoki: ...Wasn't coming to the amusement park with you enough happiness?

    Hiramaru: N-no, what I meant was marriage...I want this happiness to be everlasting.

    Aoki: 8D

    Aoki: Marriage...

    Aoki: ...Please give me happiness as well.

    Yoshida: !

    Hiramaru: Suc...

    ...CESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. <3

    Yoshida: Hiramaru! It worked out?!

    Yoshida: It worked out! Congrat...

    ...ulations?

    Ferris Wheel fodder: Please watch your step.

    Aoki: Um. Can we ride it again?

    Hiramaru: ?

    Ferris Wheel fodder: Again? But we're getting ready to close now.

    Aoki: Pleeeeease... ^_^

    Ferris Wheel fodder: %_%

    Ferris Wheel fodder: Alright. Wish you all the best.

    Yoshida: Riding it again huh? As expected of Aoki-sensei.

    Hiramaru: Yuri-tan, you were being selfish to the ferris wheel fodder staff.

    Hiramaru: (Ehh!)

    Aoki: ....

    Hiramaru: (Yuri-tan)

    Hiramaru: (Oh yeah, Yoshida told me to sit next to each other...)

    Aoki: Th-this time, we should relax and take in the view from the ferris wheel.

    Hiramaru: It's impossible to relax. I'm just so happy, my heart's just beating really fast now.

    Aoki: Yeah, I feel so happy too.

    Hiramaru: S-sorry, I should've been sitting next to you from the start.

    Aoki: Yeah you should~ =_="

    Aoki: And also, saying something like "please give me happiness", I can't believe you.

    Hiramaru: Ehh?

    Aoki: It wasn't easy to get....you only get proposed to once in a lifetime...so it shouldn't have been "please give...".

    Hiramaru: Ehh, are you serious? I said "please give..."?! I said it wrong....

    Hiramaru: (Uwahh, Yuri-tan is so cute)

    Yoshida: Good. Very good. Now he should be able to work hard on drawing manga now.

    Aoki: Hiramaru-san, look outside... There...

    Hiramaru: ?

    [Yoshida is crying here]

    Hiramaru: Yoshida!! T_T

    Hiramaru: Hurry...hurry and end this ride already. I want to be where Yoshida is!

    Aoki: Hiramaru and Yoshida sure are good to each other.

    Hiramaru: H-he's even more important than my parents!

    Hiramaru: Yoshida~~~~Koji!!

    Yoshida: You did well, Hiramaru~~~~kun.

    Yoshida: Very good, very good now. At that time I was almost about ready to put "Boku no.." to rest due to the author committing suicide.

    Hiramaru: Yeah, at the point when I realized I lost the ring, I didn't know what to do.

    Yoshida: THE RING'S GONE?!THE 50 MILLION YEN RING IS GONE?! YOU IDIOT!!!!

    Hiramaru: Who's the idiot, it was you who suggested I ride the roller coaster!

    Yoshida: What?! You didn't even closely follow my plan!

    Hiramaru: How are you gonna repay this 50 million yen loss!

    Yoshida: Work really hard on drawing manga, YOU IDIOT.

    Aoki: W-why don't we all look for it together. We can pretend we're like the main character in an idol drama.

    Yoshida, Hiramaru: Yes, Yuri-tan!

    Park PA: *DING DONG* Which tourist here rode on the [spinning cup ride]. In the pink cup we found a ring in a purple box.

    Because of its high unknown value, we hope whoever comes to retrieve it can prove it is theirs.

    Aoki: Ah, it's been found.

    Yoshida?/Hiramaru?: Ahahaha.

    Editorial dept: EHH? HIRAMARU-SENSEI AND AOKI-SENSEI GOT ENGAGED?!

    No way!!

    How should we say this, whether it's work or life, things are going well for the people of Team Fukuda.

    Kosugi: Nov. the 4th, the day after tomorrow where volume one of Zombie Gun and Reversi will be on sale at the same time.

    Everybody's wondering who'll have more sales.

    Yuujirou: If we just go by the popularity from the questionnaires, Reversi has the edge a bit at the moment.

    Miura: But because of Crow, Eiji has a group of dedicated fans.

    Kosugi: But Ashirogi Muto has PCP's fans too, if you put it like that, they've also got Detective Trap and Tanto's fans as well

    Miura: No no, Crow's sale volume was 1.5 million copies, PCP only managed 500 thousand copies. The gap is too big.

    Kosugi: But it's already been a while from when Crow ended to now. From the look of the questionnaires..

    Yuujirou: It doesn't matter which one. The first batch will be 300 thousand copies anyway. Which is a bit small.

    Unknown: It's better that way if bookstores sell out and we just reprint anyway.

    Better than having left overs if we print too much, that would be embarassing.

    Yuujirou: Now this is the real fight, where we see which series is number one and two.

    But no matter which one, they'll easily both go on to reach 1 million sales and truly become popular pieces of work.

    Hattori: (A popular work with sales volume of 1 million or more eh....)

    Friday 3rd November.

    Takagi: Huhh? Hiramaru-sensei and Aoki-sensei got engaged?!

    Mashiro: Finally... [LIKE YOU'RE ONE TO TALK, MASHIRO]

    Hattori: Yeah, everybody's talking about it in the editorial department.

    Another heated topic everybody's discussing is tomorrow's release of Reversi and Zombie Gun Vol 1 and wondering which one will sell better.

    Ashirogi: !

    Takagi: The first batch of prints will only be 300 thousand right?

    Hattori: Right. Crow had 1.5 million prints. Niizuma Eiji's new work and only 300 thousand prints is definitely a bit less.

    But to have the same amount of prints as him is already amazing. Both series will probably get reprinted real quickly as well.

    Takagi: Yeah! One day we'll reach 1 million prints and it'll truly become a popular series!

    Hattori: Yup. If we look at the current state, it won't just be a dream.

    Mashiro: (Not a dream....to have the same amount of sales volume as Eiji...it's possible...1 million prints...)

    (If it's like so, me and Azuki can be like Hiramaru and Aoki too)

    Hattori: What's with the stupid-looking face, Mashiro-kun?

    Mashiro: Oh, nothing, just day dreaming only.

    Hattori: About when you reach 1 million prints? It's still too early. Ahahaha.

    Hiramaru's place:

    Hiramaru: Ahhh~~~~

    I FEEL SOOOOO HAPPY, I CAN'T DRAW ANYTHING! <3

    Yoshida: What kinda joke is this....you're about to become a family man now...

    Hiramaru: AHHH, SO HAPPY. VERY HAPPY. LIFE IS SO GREATTTT.

    Yoshida: (Hm...a killing intent)

    Nakai: Yoshida, we have an anime now. And Hiramaru's gotten engaged now.

    According to the agreement, you should introduce me to [Aoki's sister whose name escapes me] now.

    Yoshida: Y-yes....after you lose another 40 kg...and then find a writer and get a serialization...

    Nakai: 4...40 kg?!

    Nakai: Hiramaru.

    Hiramaru: What?

    Nakai: Does Aoki really have a sister who looks the same as her?

    Hiramaru: Hm? Never seen her in person before, never seen her picture either.

    Yoshida: What's with that look. It's all true. An older sister who looks just like Aoki-sensei in every way.

    Friday.....

    Hattori: Alright, this should be ok. It's getting very interesting now.

    Takagi: Hattori-san, did Reversi's volume 1 sales go well?

    Hattori: Yup, they're already reprinting another 50,000 copies.

    Ashirogi: Awesome.

    Mashiro: Of course, Zombie Gun will be getting reprinted too right?

    Hattori: Yup, it'll be getting another 100,0000 copies.

    Takagi: Eh?! 100,000...amazing...

    Mashiro: !

    Takagi: Reversi, 50,000. Zombie Gun, 100,000 eh.

    Mashiro: ....

    Takagi: Z-Zombie Gun hasn't changed all that much in the questionnaires though.

    Hattori: From just looking at the questionnaires' average results, Reversi does edge out a little.

    Takagi: It's apparent we didn't lose in the questionnaires.

    Mashiro: ....

    Hattori: Fans of Niizuma-kun's Crow will most likely buy his new work, so these kinda early result are to be expected.

    The difference between 50 thousand and 100 thousand isn't that big either.

    Mashiro: Hattori-san, do you think it was because the bookcover art wasn't good enough?

    Hattori: Of course not. You drew it really well. You're just overthinking things. The first volume getting 350,000 prints is already amazing.

    You can't compare yourself to Eiji. But if you must, I'd say our cover art is better.

    Takagi: Yeah, I think so too.

    Mashiro: ....

    3 days later...

    Takagi: Hattori-san.

    Hattori: Just wanted to tell you guys there will be another reprint.

    Takagi: Ah, calling just to tell us that, thank you.

    Hattori: This time it's 30,000. Which brings the total to 380,000.

    Takagi: Another 30 thousand copies. Total of 380 thousand now.

    Mashiro: (It's only been 10 days, and we've already gotten 2 reprints for a total of 380,000 prints.)

    (The results are definitely better when you compare it to when PCP and Trap went on sale)

    (At this rate, it wouldn't be surprising to get an anime within a year)

    (No. You could even say it wouldn't be surprising if he came over and started talking about an anime right now)

    Mashiro: This is amazing, Shujin!

    Takagi: Yup.

    Takagi: Oh, will Zombie Gun be getting another reprint too?

    Hattori: Yes.

    Hattori: It's already been decided to reprint Zombie Gun until it gets 900,000 copies.

    Takagi: 9...900 thousand?!

    Mashiro: ?!

    Takagi: Why...why is the gap so big?! Our rankings were mostly higher in the questionnaires.

    Mashiro: Zombie Gun....900,000 copies.






    Enjoy, guys.

    And with that, I'm off. Will be back in a few weeks, I'll be away on holiday in a couple of days.

    Re: Bakuman 160 Spoiler Thread

    WHOA. I kinda think that it's too early for Hiramaru and Aoki, but hey, if they both agree, then by all means... XD

    Wonder if she really does have that sister we've been hearing about.

    Anyway, yay for story progression between Hiramaru and Aoki (even though, as I said, it seems to early). Because at least it's not a standstill anymore.

    I gotta wonder how it'll affect Hiramaru's WORK though. XD With all the bribes Yoshida makes about seeing Aoki and stuff...

    We should play the "let's count how many characters get married before Mashiro and Azuki" game.

    Now about the sales of the first volumes... Well actually, the printings. It seems like there's still a big gap between Ashirogi and Eiji... I can't figure out why the gap in the first few printings is quite that large, though. I mean, considering both are doing well. I can understand that Eiji's would be higher, but more than 2x more? I guess we'll probably get more info in the next chapter. (But I gotta say it sucks to have to wait a whole week, especially when there are cliffhangers... lol but that pretty much applies to just about anything, not just Bakuman manga. XD)

    Re: Bakuman 160 Spoiler Thread

    I wonder about Aoki - when they get married, will she continue her life as mangaka? We know married mangaka couples, but I wonder what will be the case here. Her soft and nice personality to me seems like she'd want to stay at home/have babies (......damn, thinking about Hiramaru and Aoki having babies as awkward as with Shuujin and Kaya at first......)

    And maybe Hiramaru will stop with depressing stuff in his manga and write something positive - and it will be successful.

    To be honest, I wouldn't be surprised if Aoki stopped being a mangaka... She's gotten cancelled a lot...

    That would probably stress out Hiramaru a lot though... Yoshida would probably work him twice as hard or something... XD Maybe... lol

    I remember how we used to get the chapters on Friday evening/Saturday morning...

    Anyhow,fantastic chapter!I'm so happy for Hiramaru!

    As for the Ashirogis,I guess what Mashiro mentioned is true.His cover art is not as gripping as Eiji's.Sure,it looks cool,but you just look at it and move on,while Zombie Gun literally reaches for your attention and wants to be read.
