Manga News: Check out this week's new manga (10/13/14 - 10/19/14).
Forum News: The nomination phase of the Community Awards 2014 is live! Visit new sections for Nisekoi and Kingdom!
I predict Sket Dance will go on for several years because it can add fillers and change the timeline without affecting the overall plot. I wouldn't have considered it a merchandisable series before the anime aired, but it's apparent that there are several ways to profit off of it. (The Sketchbook) More money, the better.
Every character in every new series seems to have the same shape face, it really bugs me. Magico, Ikkyuu, St&rs, Sengoku Armors, Metallica Metullica, etc. all seem to have the same faces but different hair. And the drawing style is always modeled on post - time skip Naruto :/
So does anyone know whether we are gonna have early release of Jump this week?
You know that the more early the release will be, the longer we will have to wait next ? So an early release is not that good.
An early release is imo the best option, people that really want they early fix of manga get it and if other people don't want to have to wait like 2 weeks they can't just not read the early release and wait until there is a week as usual..
Here are the ages of the new authors.
Retsu - (Pakki) - 1985 October 7 - Age 26
Komi Naoshi - (Nisekoi) - 1986 March 28 - Age 25
Ikezawa Haruto - (Kurogane) - 1989 June 1 - Age 22
Oh wow Kurogane author is the same age as me is he the youngest to ever have a series in Jump?
No. Obata was serialized at age 20 (Cyborg Jii-chan)

Aimoto Sho also started Muddy at age 20.
Yabuki (author of Black Cat and To Love-Ru) started his first serialization at age 19.
I once checked which was the (reported) youngest author having a serialization and it would either have to be Yabuki Kentaro or Masanori Morita.. (Both already mentioned) though I think is Masanori Morita since the character's names on Bakuman seem to be modeled after him (From wiki) so I guess it is him.
If you count from when they won the award, then Morita started as a career of mangaka at age 18. However, Yabuki begin his career of mangaka at age 17 which make Yabuki still be a one of youngest Shonen Jump mangaka who started a manga career. The other person I know is Miki Yuu (author of Kaizou Ningen Rogii, released on Issue 8 of 2011) who also won an award at age 17.
On the side note, the newbie mangaka, called Nishino Nanora, won the Jump SQ. newbie award in age 15, so s/he started even younger age than Yabuki. But, s/he still didn't start serialization, yet.
