Someone's got to point out to those, or do you imply not having read such over the past months? Regardless of their number, hate on a certain genre has no place in this thread, one can admit to not like it, but to draw conclusions based on llittle information, there's no point to that.

Yet another high week for Gintama, awesomesauce. It's probably the first time a serious arc has been so well recieved, and it truly deserves it. Considering the other two series I read are either constantly high ranked or on hiatus, the TOC is far from the best part of waking up for me, in fact it's about as exciting as watching paint dry. Though I guess at the same time, a new series that one enjoys is kinda like watching a kid grow up and hopefully become successful, though with Jump most of the time they're killed by the police, or end up pursuing a career in music and overdosing on their own success.

another thing besides the obvious comments about romance.
i think that all the new series so far since nisekoi are really doing well in comparision with the last 2 years. it's like a miracle that they get so many, or maybe put some on hold. i mean it looks like they want to push rom-com in the hope 1-2 of them survives. do you think that we see another specific genre pop up after cancleation rounds? like detective or gag to find one gem in the mud? i can't think that it was by chance that we got so many of them. maybe they saw their portfolio and thought, ohh look, we don't reach enough of that group lets do some rom-com.
This week's bottom 5 was pretty accurate. I'm sad about Magico, but it's going to have to work harder if it wants to survive. It will probably be cushioned by Pajama and 1-2 of the new series, but it's still in danger.

I don't remember the ones you are talking about either. The only thing I recall are people who complain that new Jump series were almost all romance which is not far from the truth.

Got my hopes up for a One Piece color page next week
Can't say I'm especially excited for another Bleach color page since Kubo barely used any color in the ones he got this week.
To have five romance manga out of two dozen manga full of comedy and action, is it that bad? It's not like it was only romance that they did add to the magazine over the last couple years, there were dozens of other comedy, action, adventure and romance manga that were cancelled too.

My favorite Jump series:
1) Medaka Box- Since I read a lot of manga, it;s nice to see a good parody/deconstruction of battle manga tropes
2) Hunter x Hunter- The new anime reignited my love for the series and I like it more now than when I first read it
3) One Piece
5) Naruto- While it;s this high on the list I;m pretty much just waiting for the series to end. it;s gotten pretty stale
6) Reborn- Same as Naruto
7) Niseoki- Fun little romcom series. Nice to see it;s surviving
8) Magico- Kinda bored with it now so I won't be too depressed when it gets the axe
9) Bleach- Reading it because my inner completionist compels me. Hoping it'll actually pick up again for me but I doubt it
10) Sensei no Bulge/Barrage- It;d be higher since I like it so far, but it;s new so it still has to prove itself a bit more.
Gintama would be on the list but i only watch the anime.
Magazines work about the same no matter what region you live in. Advertising costs the most in the front half of the magazine, the closer to the table of contents, the more expensive. Magazines put the articles of highest interest near the front and middle for that reason. Check a magazine at home, the cover story is almost always in the center, while the front has a mix of high interest short articles (editorials, letters section, news, gossip,etc. depending on the magazine). Most magazines are under 100p, of course. There is some difference in laying out a 500p magazine like . But the principal remains the same: place lead articles and the most expensive ad space where readers are most likely to read first. They adjust as they need, no need to be slaves to your own formula. But the number of variations are very small, when there is an exception it is nearly always the same as the last.
Hate is such a strong word to use for comics. You could find negativity directed towards slice of life and romance spread throughout this thread. There were predictions Nisekoi would be canceled quickly, based on nothing more than genre, before chapter 1 raws were even out. I've lost track of the number of posts about slice of life or romance not being able to last long because of plot limitations.Quote:

That's not the point. The point is that half of the new series since last summer are romance when there is almost not a single one in the 2 years before thatQuote:

I wasn't the one talking about hate. I simply wanted to point that your reaction toward matto24 post transformed into something ridiculous like hate of a genre when nobody said such thing.Quote:
There's a reason why I plead users to use the "topic" thread for re-occurring topics. The discussion here isn't structured for topics[content of chapter] and has a magnitude more pages than the typical chapter discussion. Have fun searching for a post with "end" in it. Or did you feel addressed, because your own words "Pajama first chapters did not really interested me so I stopped reading it rapidly. Nisekoi also tired me. I guess I'm not a jump romcom guy. So I'm not really looking for a 3d one. " Well, I never did in this matter until you quoted me. Let's forget about the word hate and exchange it with unfounded negativism towards the length of romance series. It doesn't matter if it's one, two or a dozen posts like that, it's the assertion on the genre that's annoying.
So the point is that they push romance? They do that after a long lasting drought of those, is this a reason to be so negative about them? Will that enable me to badmouth the other genre when we only get action or comedy next time? I think it's only fair to have one third of new series to be partly romance. Kaiten has a better recollection of those posts as seen above.

I believe the last fifty posts in this thread are what's referred to as "arguing semantics".
