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

    Im new here so I dont know but how often do these cancellation rounds come around? I know the ToC shows series' rankings of 8 chapters ago so how long do that wait after the first 8 chapters?

  9. [Chapter] Re: Shin Prince of Tennis Chapter 137 Discussion/Predictions

    I will admit I was pretty harsh on ryoma. After rereading the chapters where he gets kicked out, ryoma initially did want to help tokugawa. That was one of the main motivations as to why he jumped...
