  1. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    I'd say the best of manga can make you think and still have action. AC for example has plenty of action, but there's quite some emphasis on the technical aspects behind the special moments. I've...
  2. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    Kikai Banashi Hanasaka Ikkyu. Its oneshot won the five chapter Golden Future Cup after Metallica Mallurca, Beelzebub and Nurarihyon no Mago (I think that was 2009?). Then the duo behind it made...
  3. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    It definitely resembles Enigma, not just in the way the characters are drawn and their personalities, but even the story structure is pretty much an exact replica of Enigma and Classroom of Truth...

    Release dates and titles of the three new series coming to Jump+:

  5. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    To be fair, at least the story doesn't seem to be based on any recurring fad doomed to fail.

    *cough*Tokyo Wonder Boys*cough*
  6. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    Well, just as I thought. Things really have changed. An environment virtually free of the chopping block? That's pretty awesome in itself already.
  7. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    I felt the exact same thing with Sakaki when I first saw the announcement. But of course, it's a hierarchy that's out of our control, so there's not much reason to worry about it at this point. Not...
  8. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    I barely read manga nowadays, but I'd love to come back one last time just for her.



    I feel it's a civic duty to make this screenshot my new signature... at least while I'm still around.
  9. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 7

    Intentional fodder is absolutely right. This is exactly the problem WSJ's been having lately. At this point, the editors are so desperate in maintaining WSJ's turnover rate of series getting...
  10. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 7

    That list looks like the kind of thing I'd make for fun, but wouldn't bother specifically because it'd lead to the inevitable debates as to how popular each series is. For example, even though I'm...
  11. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    I can't even read the manga and already I'm hating it if that's how it really is. Is this really what Jump is going for these days?

    At this point, I don't think I need to repeat myself again as to...
  12. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Wow. He really did pull through after all. Congrats to Horikoshi. If only that got serialized in English instead of his previous work.

    Just like Ashihara with World Trigger, a lot of time to plan...
  13. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    I thought they'd at least show some sign of returning. I mean, apart from being away for so long, maybe to hone their skills, they've also each written their own oneshots after their last series have...
  14. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    It's been several years now and I'm still waiting for Kenji Sakaki or Sho Aimoto to return. By the looks of it, it doesn't seem like Iwashiro, Iwamoto, Amano, Ohba, or Obata are showing any signs of...
  15. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    I like how they filtered out their respective partners: the writers, both of whom were terrible. The writer of the former didn't learn from the big blunder of his first series, while the latter flat...
  16. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    With this many series keeping a solid position in the magazine, this rule is getting less worthy of discussion by the day.

    These days, it's either you get that solid position right away, as seen...
  17. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    That looks about right for numerous cases, but whatever you do, don't treat it like it's set in stone. You could have something like AC when it first shot up on the ToC less than 8 weeks in, or, on...
  18. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Wow, it's actually matching AC levels of popularity? I guess they're really into whatever Kawada's drawing.

    Unless someone picks up this series ASAP, I can imagine Western audiences are going to...
  19. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    It's proofreading time!



    There, much better.
  20. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    You and your rapid fire replies. I haven't finished editing my comment yet. >.<

    Of course it's not, but along with the story, which most of us can't even judge yet, it's definitely a major...
  21. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Having not read Bulge in the last <2 years, I take a peek at the first few pages and immediately I recognize the art as very closely resembling Bulge's. Heck, you could take the main character's pose...
  22. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    There's no comparison between SS and D. Grayman, the only series ever to have been transferred to SQ. SQ is an established magazine by itself and has been for several years now, not a recent startup...
  23. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Couldn't tell, since he listed a specific magazine.
  24. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Source or it didn't happen.
  25. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Exactly. It's just about his last chance at this point. And it's also likely going to be his best.

    I guess it's not so bad for iShojo, if it's part of this ongoing trend of series moving from the...
  26. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    I sure hope BHA does well; if there's one highly successful work to come out of Horikoshi, it's got to be this one.

    Didn't iShojo have a real life app? So much for that promotion.
  27. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    That's exactly what I was thinking too. In fact, I cited World Trigger as the opposite of Bulge because of the contrast in timeframe. But now Horikoshi himself manages to make his own series that...
  28. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    As much as Sensei no Bulge had been such a flop, it was also given very little time (~1 year) from oneshot to serialization for Horikoshi to sort out any kinks, so it's actually a pleasant surprise...
  29. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Can I have some of your jelly right there?

    Best of luck to the Dois Sol author.
  30. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    I have a feeling it'll be hard to tell which images of WT belong to the manga and which belong to the anime, screenshots and black and white pages aside.



    I don't know if a new volume really...
  31. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    More room for oneshots! I mean, if HxH and OP are both to appear in this upcoming issue anyways, why not use the spare slot OP will leave behind?
  32. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    I sure can't wait for Tokyo Wonder Boys to come out. The greatest series in the history of Jump doesn't need something so frivolous as a second volume.
  33. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    I think everyone who thinks WT is getting an anime at this point should calm down... sort of. I definitely wouldn't be anticipating a whole series, but I could see another VOMIC or even an OVA happen...
  34. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    It ranked 4th behind 1st place Erabarezaru-sha (seen here in the lower right corner, Ultraman, and Ready Justice in 3rd (seen in the upper left corner).

    Here are the rankings I was talking about....
  35. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    The sumo manga was bound to get serialized anyways.

    Also, spoiler alert: expect to see Fujimi Killers and Bochikuro coming soon to WSJ.

    The thing is, there have been rankings (not sure if...
  36. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    I see. Quite a recipe for disaster there. When I said "in between", I certainly wasn't thinking just ten weeks after Mr. Fullswing ended.
  37. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Kurogane the kendo series lasted a year. I don't think they're necessarily that unfashionable.
  38. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Smoky B.B. started just about a year ago. It sucked, though that might just be because of how ridiculously incompetent the writer is. But the previous baseball manga was Mr. Fullswing, which ran from...
  39. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Agreed. Ultimately, the main focus for Jump editors is on experimental manga, some of which has paid off, like Nisekoi, AC, Soma and Isobe, and others which haven't as much, such as iShojo and...
  40. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Exactly. Look at the bright side, SharkBait. At least the CPs might not mean so much anyways.
  41. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Haha, sure. Keep those negative vibes going, buddy, not that you can probably even read the series beyond the first four chapters.



    Tokyo Wonder Bonkers and the great Smoky B.B.Q. Need I say...
  42. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    As a reference, Hinomaru Zumo started off as a oneshot from the Spring 2013 issue of Jump NEXT, the same issue that included Keitai Shojo, iShojo's precursor oneshot, and Tadahiro Miura's High Spec...
  43. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Looks like it's only partially right. Stealth Symphony is still at the bottom, but WT is 6th from the bottom.
  44. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    And so concludes my dealings with Stealth Symphony. Can't wait for the next serialization round. Maybe this time I'll see someone I liked.
  45. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    The problem is that the hardcore pro-Stealth Symphonites are expressing opinions that don't provide any objectivity, any unique and valid reason why an average reason should like this series.

    You...
  46. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    The bloodshed starts now.
  47. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    I keep forgetting that one. Same goes for Ichigo 100%. But those were many years ago. It sure doesn't look like we'd had as much a Barrage ever in WSJ history. Chalk up Illegal Rare on the list...
  48. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    What other reason is there to arbitrarily dismiss the spoilers at this point?
  49. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    And hey, what about that Psyren author, Toshiaki Iwashiro?

    I'm under the belief that the editors have a bias to allow authors of more recent, failed series to return rather than those of less...
  50. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    On the other hand, from that same issue of NEXT came Soul Catcher(s), and of all series, Tokyo Wonder Boys, hence my super jealousy.
