It's a really funny, entertaining manga, and I have also been enjoying it recently.
    Agreed, even side characters like Raku's friend and Ruri are likeable and fun to watch. So far there's no character who seems useless and Komi found a good mix of episodic chapters and plot development. Not sure as to how long the series can go on but if he maintains that quality I'm pretty sure Komi has finally created a series that has a good chance of bein the next Jump romcom hit.

    Btw do you know the last romcom that was (very) successful in Jump? The only two series that come to my mind are To Love-ru and Ichigo 100%

    True, there won't be any series canceled soon but if Magico or Kurogane continue to stay at the bottom they're in danger too even though it seems very likely that at least one new series will end.

    Magico is average in my opinion and I'm kinda bored of it, I would rather want to see a new series getting a chance instead of so-so series barely staying alive. On the one hand there were series which only got good later on so maybe I'm judging it too soon but on the other hand I don't see much potential.

    Interesting, is there any series you could compare it with?

    Sensei no Bulge Color Pages

    Spoiler show


    Haikyuu Color Page
    Spoiler show


    Pajama na Kanojo Color Page and Volume 1 Preview
    Spoiler show


    Bulge looks awesome. I haven't read the chapter yet; I just received the color pages from a friend in Japan.

    The genre that Bulge is given on the Jump cover is a sci-fi, fantasy, battle manga.

    Thanks and sorry about that. As an apology I also put in the Pajama and Haikyuu color pages aswell

    I would have put them in the color page archive, but I have no idea how everyone makes them so nice and small.

    Sci-fi with a medieval setting sounds awesome. Those color pages are great, really looking forward to reading it..

    Based on just looking at color page, I think the story will be different from its pilot version.

    I don't find the art as offensive as I thought I would.

    How long was it since Jump had last space opera series? Only space opera series in Jump that I know is Cobra (I'm not sure whether Dragonball considers space opera series).

    No way for Dragonball since it only went to space in Z and that was only for Namek.

    Just because there are elements of space, it doesn't qualify as a space opera. Space opera in general has become scarce, I think it was a flavor of the time in terms of the demand for it.

    What about Dragonball would qualify it as a space opera

    It's common sense to assume that a new sci-fi manga will be an example of a sub-genre that has not been fashionable in thirty-five years based only on a few color pages, right?

    However, there is a person who doubt Dragonball being a space opera, like crimsonlink310.

    The cover and the colour page look awesome. I wonder who's going to be translating and scanning it? Whoever will do it has my full gratitude.

    I don't even know how to respond to this. Did you really wonder if Toriyama Akira's Dragonball could be a space opera? Did you really write a second post about this topic? I can't even think of anything sarcastic to say about this shit. It's to damn silly, even for me. Good day sir, and good night
