This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
My favorite this week was Satsuki no Sora. The premise is out there, but it was a pretty decent story. I could see this becoming really interesting if it's picked up for serialization.
Here's what vyc had to say:
Quote:
Henshuuou - Liked the concept of a manga series about a manga magazine. The main character is honest, good hearted but isn't hesitant to say what's on his mind. Little bit old school but still a good read. I liked it. Tokyo Girls Destruction - who doesn't like school girls duking it out. Add a little storyline so that the fighting makes sense and you got a good series.
My opinion:
Himegami Gadget reminds me a bit of Transformers. I mean, c'mon, a car turning into a robot... XD On the other hand, Hoshi wo Tsugumono sounds really interesting. The idea that humans were on the moon 50,000 years ago, or that humans even existed that long ago is mind boggling. I really hope someone picks this up so we can find out how that's possible~ Strings Dolls sounds like a nice concept too and looks like another take on a 'game'-type situation. Tokyo Girls Destruction sounds a bit like Battle Royale, but for girls, perfect for guys that like to see girls battle it out and probably rip off a bit of their clothes in the process... It also reminds me of the manga in Bakuman - Panty Flash... I wonder if the authors were reading this manga when they came up with that idea...

Actually there is a lot more to the TGD that its actually said. Also the manga begun long before Panty Flash was ever even mentioned in Bakuman. What i've read so far i see it a lot more to be a about bullying, back stabbing and survival of the fittest, rather than anything else; though the obligatory panchira with taking a shower scene are there, but at least its not forced and emphasised as it just loves to be in so many other manga out there :P
