Interesting 2ch likes Inumaru so much. I should get back into reading it, it always seemed like it was aiming toward younger age groups, but 2ch generally likes more depth and interesting plots.
Jump Next Oneshots

Any of these guys previously-published authors?
Generally only the top 1 or 2 ranking in NEXT get a chance at being serialized. None of those really stand out to me.
Tsugumo looks okay I guess.
I don't know what's with the art trend these days, but none of the NEXT series stands out visually. The synopsis doesn't capture my attention either. :/
Agree, none look really that interesting, but if I had to pick il'd go with Megaton Cherry. The others look pretty awful.
I'm still hoping Koushien no Mamono or anything by its author gets serialized. That was awesome and has the best art I've ever seen.
the three on the bottom look alright
Rest look boring
they all look uninspired
The most interesting one is Pandakyuu(sp?),because well...there's a panda.Rest feels old.
The guy with a scary face in the middle of the bottom looks cool. I think it was previously "published" as a Treasure entry with the title "獣剣Lovers". http://www.shonenjump.com/j/manga-sh...asureread.html The art isn't that good, but the concept looks interesting.

I thought that is the typical shounen-y art? Besides, assuming they are all newbies n jump next is weekly, it is understandable. Drawing complicated art for weekly serialization is suicide unless u have lots of assistants. Besides, even for someone like masakazu katsura or urasawa, their early art is far from impressive (someone should read wingman n yawara n compare it to the current art) xD
Maybe most don't dare to create something more unique, maybe some were assistents to some running series, taking a bit of style because they know it works. Look at the bright side, the unique ones will shine even more brightly so. :P
Sorry, but it hurts my eyes looking at the preview shots with half the heads being cut off.
I left it out on purpose, as nothing was cut off.

The character designs of Oumagadoki and Yotsuya Senpai are pretty unique, in my opinion. Not a recent series, but Muhyo & Roji art style is awesome too.
Zeromcd missed one more one shot. It's this one:
This one is manga-adaptation of light novel with same illustrator also doing artwork for manga (like Kure-nai). And it has released an another one shot on the recent Jump SQ.Lab.
Also, it looks like the writer, Hinata Shou, also wrote novel-adaptation for Rakko 11-go.

For recent one shots, my favorite artwork was Murahagane, by Yashiro Manabu. Its artwork resembles 80s style SF manga; darn, I still hoped this series to win GFC rather than Hungry Joker.
