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

    Jump+ is their entire online store.
    That includes the tons of free manga and bonus thingies and also the digital version of the main magazine, the digital version of Ultra Jump, the digital color...
  2. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    Yeah. Really hard name to romanize. Seeing as I translated Enigma, I'll give it a read. It looks pretty cool and you can tell it's by the same author (School manga, characters stuck in a crazy game...

    Yup. Same kanji.

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

    I translated the whole manga and anime. At the beginning I was trying to use my manga scripts and just edit them/improve them (Since I did them in like 3 years earlier) to save time, but then it...
  6. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    Yeah, I don't think Toriko failed any expectations. It's sold like 22 million copies so far, a whole bunch of video games and tons of other stuff.

    I think most likely it has to do with something...
  7. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    The controversy was about a lot of things in the manga being taken out, censored, made more kid friendly or just sorta "softened". That includes things like removing the explanations of the...
  8. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    It was one of the top-rated anime every week. It probably ended because sales were down and the movie didn't do that well. (The Gintama movie did better and was on fewer screens. Though they stuck...
  9. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    Or they could go the Kuroshitsuji route with the just "Ok, forget we did an anime-only ending. We're just gonna do the next arc of the manga now."
  10. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    Given the fact that Gintama's gotten another anime despite its sales going down for so long, I'm not gonna rule anything out. Though usually a series with declining sales won't get more anime, I...
  11. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    Honestly, Toriko's always felt like one of the most original series I've read. That's why I always keep translating it, it's never failed to surprise me, and I've read a lot of adventure manga...
  12. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    It looks like the author's going for all-digital coloring. And fairly flat all-digital coloring at that.
    I wonder what percentage of the Jump mangaka draw with tablets rather than pens and stuff....

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

    Maybe Haikyuu did okay for a while before the anime. I hadn't checked it that much. It's just kinda amazing to me why those two manga shot up so much after the anime started.
  15. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    Kuroko's rankings were horrible for a long time. Both Haikyuu and Kuroko only really did well after the animes started.
  16. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    They'll all be posted online now as long as you pay the 5 dollars or whatever it is. So it should be easier.

    I haven't read the last chapter yet, but when reading the series I had always expected a "take down the Liar Game Association" arc or something. Or they somehow came up with some plan that bankrupted...
  20. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    Well, based on this week's chapter of Gintama, I'm starting to think Gintama could definitely end this year now.

    [Mag Talk] Re: Bessatsu Shonen Magazine

    Yes, Aku no Hana was good, I'd fallen behind and I read the last 4-5 volumes last week, so nice to see him back. But when will Raiku-sensei's next manga start?
  23. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    It's hard to predict anything with Gintama for sure. It just ended a serious arc (maybe? Might not even be 100% over) and will probably go back to comedy for a while. It was also the longest arc in...

    Vorpal Swords?

    Was literally every name that would make sense to call a basketball team taken, so they went for a Lewis Carroll literary reference?

    Mizuki Kawashita and NisiOisin? Ichigo 100% and Medaka Box? What a weird combination.

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

    I'm pretty surprised they're making a new Gintama anime given the fact that sales have been going down continuously since the last one started. But happy nonetheless. I guess it's largely due to the...

    Here's hoping the rumors of an JJBA All Star Battle 2 are true.
    It seems likely enough, the first one was the 10th best selling game in Japan last year and the 2nd best selling console game.

    They're seemingly making a new Yugioh movie based on the actual manga.

    Is that really Kakanai Mangaka's last chapter? Or like a joke thing?
    Well if so that's really something. That manga's been going for like 5 years. I'll have to read the rest soon.

    Toriko's anime ending seems to have hurt it quite a bit. I still think the story's really great though even if it's not in the top ranks anymore. But it's not getting the exposure it once had without...
  36. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Magazine News & Discussion [Kodansha]

    With the recent surge of deadly sins I'm sure there'll be more. Course, the anime's only like 24 episodes.

    Geez. They didn't even mention on the cover that it was the last chapter of Dragonball? I'm sure given how popular the last issue of Naruto was that the last issue of Dragonball must've been insanely...

  42. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 7

    I have to disagree. I don't think there's any such thing as "relevant things in discussing a piece of media" vs "irrelevant". It's purely subjective and depends on the point of view of the person....

    I really don't. I think opinions are entirely subjective. It's not a scientific thing where you can prove in a lab like a law of physics. There's no ultimate test to prove that something is "more...

    Gintama's having a big fight and flashback that's been teased for 10 years. It's honestly really interesting and exciting and maybe it's bringing back old fans who wanted to see how that would go.

    Scanlations for 126 and 127 are out at Mangabandits. I just finished my translations for the next two last night. We're gonna try to get them out weekly rather than 2 every 2 weeks after this.
  47. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Magazine News & Discussion [Kodansha]

    Kinda odd to only be making an anime when the series has completely ended. The sales boost is usually less if it's all done already. I would guess it's because the manga isn't too long and they want...
  48. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 7

    I'd say the editors just want SOMETHING to replace some of the series that've left recently. As people have mentioned, there's only 6 series with more than 200 chapters.
  49. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 7

    Academia should be safe from cancelation with that. Not like it was in danger of it anyhow with its good ranks.
    Hinomaru will probably survive, I dunno if it's gonna end up being much of a major hit...
  50. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 7

    Apparnetly they're making an app that's gonna let you read all 700 chapters of Naruto and 220 episodes of the original anime for free on Japanese Android and iOS phones.
