    Oyster? Reminds me of the name of the card we used in London to get on the Tube. Metrocard, Oyster Card, what next? D:

    It actually seems like they are adding more school life/romantic comedy managa's lately. Nisekoi, Pajama, the series starting next week. There are more manga with prominent female characters now than there was a year ago.

    Your assumption makes a lot of sense, actually, considering Jumps' readership has become much older over the past year. Maybe their readers have started to hit puberty, and need dating advice?

Lessons are sure to be learned from the history of the subcontinent.

    You don't sound clinical at all. In fact, I'm glad that you have such an academic interest in it. The Partition is such an emotionally charged event that it's difficult to even mention it in conversation without wanting to villify India. My parents were born immediately following the Partition, and they carry a lot of their parents grudges, fears, and prejudices about surviving it (not to mention they each have brothers and sisters who were children at the time of separation). Even though I am two generations removed from it, I still get swept up in the stories of people who died for the country they chose. It's difficult to even talk about, let alone trying to analyze it and be critical of its causes.

    I've cooled to D.Gray-man as well, but it still holds a special place in my heart and I want to read it to the end.

    Suddenly I'm imagining Jump editors holding a meeting every month to discuss whether the magazine has been keeping up its quota of bishies, and whether they need to pressure the mangakas into taking bishie drawing classes. xD

    I think KochiKame is the only manga in Weekly Jump right now that doesn't have a single bishie. The rest have already been assimilated. *obligatory Borg reference*

    [QUOTE=Kaiten;2869677]Don't tell the fanboys in the Jump thread btw. They will flip if anyone mentions how important fuoshi are to Jump's popularity.

    But but....I thought everyone knew of Jump's love affair with the fujoshi fandom. I mean, Jump's female fanbase is partly why its unique among other shonen magazines...right? And if you're a Toriko fan, how can you not know? Once I was a part of another forum, and I saw a couple of members have complete meltdowns after finding out all the doujinshi available for a series was yaoi.

    Yes, its being scanlated regularly by an amazingly talented dedicated guy called anonspore. He is am amazing translator. The whole series has been great so far as well.

    What other titles run in Afternoon? :@bunny

    True, the whole storyline has been superb. It reminds me a lot of stories my parents tell me about their grandparents. What I love about Otoyomegatari is that whole villages look and act different from one another, as they should. When we saw vignettes of Amira's life in the last chapter, I was taken aback at how different she looked and behaved compared to the other women we've seen in the story, even though we were introduced to her first (I know she's older than most brides, but still).

    He is such a troll! That was quite frustrating to see something not come to fruition.

    lol. I thought Sasuke was Jump's love guru.

    I have a feeling One Piece has been drawing a lot of older readers to Jump recently, along with established readers growing up but not growing out of Jump. It is very interesting that rather than resist their new audience, Jump seems to be embracing older teen readers.

    If I am not mistaken the partition triggered one of the largest migrations in human history. The refugee crisis triggered is simply staggering. We are taught somewhat of it in school here, if I remember correctly. Nothing quite equals the turmoil caused by the collapse of an empire. Western Europe needs 1400 years to completely recover from the collapse of Rome.

    I have had a hard time placing recent arcs in context of the greater story since the move. The last WSJ arc, at the orphanage, was fine. It's been since the special chapter in Akamura Jump that I have had trouble following the story. I haven't given up on DGM yet, I've been following it a real long time, but it definitely frustrates me. It's one of my first manga, so it still has some nostalgic appeal.

    That would be awesome

    The best part: I can totally imagine it really happening. Maybe the mangaka of Reborn teaches those classes.

    That may be true. Even One Piece and HxH have bishies, both definitely have popular yaoi pairings.

    They are in denial. Most think Jump's popularity is from heart pounding action, magic powers, and fighting. I'd be curious to see how people react if the topic is brought up in the TOC thread.

    Ah, it is. I hadn't noticed any recent releases but he is translating on a regular basis. I need to start Nidame soon.

    Quote Quote:

    Quite a few well known titles. While it is more of a quirky, less mainstream magazine, it is more popular online than Young Magazine, Kodansha's seinen flagaship. There are a lot of interesting, obscure series available in English but some of the better known I can think of are: Blame, Mushishi, Ah My Goddess, Mysterious Girlfriend X, Historie, Afternoon, Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou, Me and the Devil Blues. Here's a full list, I'm sure there are many well known titles I'm not thinking of http://www.mangaupdates.com/publishe...name=Afternoon

    I noticed that, that the dress and customs of each village is different. Amira is so much more assertive than Tama, who is also so different than the twins. I really like how she got a lot of the history right, with British agents and explorers moving north from Pakistan, and Russian military moving south, forming alliances with some tribes, attacking others.
