    Regardless of what the editors' intentions are, it is pretty creative to have Koro-sensei's arm be a border. Beel being placed on his shoulder is a nice touch too.

    @naruto-niichan Thanks for the vids. Wish I had one from Kubo to put on my wall. They also have one from Kishi and Toriko's author.

    eh... it's more graphic design here. they're using existing images, and some are clearly suited for certain positions. Koro's facing forwards and's symmetrical, so he would be bang-on in the middle. it's the same deal with Haiji's pose at the edge, him facing outwards makes him suitable as a corner piece. See also: Beel sitting on the edge, and Naruto and Toriko both facing forwards and being either side of Luffy. It's good design.

    But then I *would* say that, Kiruko and Soma are at the back.

    You mean to tell me that the best selling manga of all time, already nearly 700 chapters, yet barely more than half way done, will continue for years to come? Truly, a bold prediction

    Considering we were only told at the start of the time-skip that Oda thinks he might be halfway it's not really the most ridiculous of concepts, to be sure.

    I'm pretty sure he thought he might be "halfway done" when he was doing Alabasta. :P It will definitely go on for a while to say the least.

    Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012-2013] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 4

    Its indeed a great concept to let them search for something, that isn't defined and not in anyones hands. This way he can keep on going all the time. if someone say that he will reach the end of the world sometime then he could do a lot of things to further the story, like going into a parallel world or things like Skytopia.

    For me this is exactly the reason why i don't like it as much as other do. There is no real main story or at least a real progression for it. We don't have one main villian. Its just a sum of several independent arcs with reappearing characters sometimes. On the good side would be the deep meaning of his stories, like the one on fishermans island, even though the story itself was bad.

    Didn't I read he was 60% done now :-))
    @Asgaroth, several independant arcs with reappearing characters is pretty much the definition of any adventure manga. I find it pretty easy to follow the progression of the story, they are on a sea in form of a straight line and the goal is to reach the end... And it is said that he has the end in mind from the start. We even learned recently that it is the first thing he tells his editors when they met so he won't further the story.

    Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2012-2013] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 4

    And that's precisely my opinion why ONE PIECE is so popular.

    You basically know nothing about the main character, and every arc while following the same formula (Get into island, meet Tour Guide-esque character, knowing the enviroment of said island -as in the problems-, then a sentimental backstory and then Luffy beating the living crap out of the enemy).

    Each arc focuses on developing a next straw-hat, and each arc can have its beginning, middle, climax and ending, and then Oda always puts little things after each arc..

    Spoiler show

    As for the main character you slowly but surely learn little by little about him, and at the same time you know nothing about Luffy,
    Spoiler show



    If you guys think about it its realllyyyyyyy similar in plot structure to Dragon Ball, the next best selling manga ever, as in DB doesn't really have any main enemies, its DBZ era is very much arc driven (Not really continual) but Oda doesn't put things out of his ass like Toriyama did and he doesn't really forget characters either lol

    i believe a huge amount of popularity in the beginning started with a much simpler fact. each of the characters in db, op, naruto, bleach had a cool supermove, which could easily imitated by children themselves. Running around and shouting rasengan! now they are old and what kept them were of course the good stories. the same goes by the way for star wars. all of them have more created a univserse, in which you can easily tell your own story, instead of only one. you will never see such a hype for a crime thriller.
