I'm enjoying it so far, but yeah, a lot of stuff that we've seen before. It will take a bit for it to break out of the ordinary.
The manga is incredibly superior to the anime series. The anime series adds some pretty terrible mysteries and completely trashes Sai's backstory. He is a lot more interesting in the manga. I also...
Loving on the Yumichika for the Bleach cover, but my favorite has definitely got to be Kasai for the Neuro cover. I'm really glad all the Bloodline members have gotten a chance to be highlighted on...
There's official colors of them on the volume covers actually:
DR and Tierra
Well, they've been mentioned in the past, when they moved with him to Tokyo, but yeah, I don't know what kind of parents would let their son act like that (then again, I can't see anyone ever...
Out of all the three newbies, I definitely only really like Bokke-san. It's suspenseful and Hinomiya definitely has a strange charm to him as a lead. Not to mention, that after so many volumes of...
Ahaha, it is sort of like Death Note lite if you think about it. Saiko, a bored student, preparing for exams, gets pulled onto a path he never thought by a notebook, eventually coming into a strange...
I'd vote Iwase, even though I doubt she'll appear again for at least another thirty chapters.
Second to her, Saiko, because he's adorable and really easy to identify with for me. And then Eiji,...
Between the two, my vote is for Azuki, because she's frankly more interesting as a character for me. I think a lot of people don't pay attention to the fact that Saiko tends to paint her with a broad...
I'm sure he'll get at least a few assistants when they finally get serialized. It would help make the manga-making segments a little less rushed.
Definitely agreed. I doubt Eiji would abuse that power if S+S were truly doing a good manga. He's not a competitive rival at this point. He's a goal, someone who's working out of a pure love of manga...
Yeah :D Still a chance that there are others out there.
paradigm? The art's really pretty disappointing, though. Checked Y!J after that, too, but still nothing Double Arts (although some very cute pre-made Elraine cosplay-- If only I were anywhere near...
I checked around on a few of the fanartist sites that I know of and saw there was at least artist that would be selling a DA doujinshi.
But I don't know about any others. I had someone looking...
Agreed. I would definitely love to see what Shujin and Azuki look like in similarly-styled covers.
For those of you who don't want to wait through the animation.
I'm really impressed by the way Komi's artwork keeps progressing. This splashpage is...
That's actually a good point. There was something in Bakuman just recently about how they focus on votes from younger boys most in the main rankings. So, the fact that DA appealed to an older...
That makes a lot of sense. Thanks for clearing that up, evi!
True, the real test of a good sports manga is definitely in how the games are handled. Considering the lead's approach to playing competitively, it should make for an interesting first match, at...
I'm actually loving that Eiji's a fan of theirs. It's a twist that works well with how he's been built up with such a pure-hearted love for manga. It also makes the rival dynamic much more...
... I'm in love with the preview art already.
I was excited about Nishi getting a new series at all, but this looks incredibly promising.
The first fifteen are:
5. Bossun (as drawn by Switch)
I'm assuming they're just identifying Komi by his work more-so than offering a sequel one-shot.
But, I'm impressed at how Komi really doesn't seem to be getting discouraged at all and is throwing...
I was really prepared not to like this one after KOsen and it certainly did feel pretty cliche at points.
But the lead character felt refreshing. It's nice seeing a lead so confident and...
sob. That's a beautiful cover. It makes me feel nostalgic for it already.
Well, if you want super high quality and don't mind jumping through some hoops for your manga, check out JumpLand?
Bossun was my first favorite character and, I admit, he never really gets old.
But, my fondness has always been for the student council, especially Tsubaki. I'm hoping that now that the flashback...
Yeah, you'd think we'd have heard something by now. This wait is really making me antsy.
I don't mind so much. The Jump raws for Neuro are so terrible I'd feel sorry for anyone who worked with them. At least this way we get a nice big chunk all at once in great quality. And Anonymous...
The translation on Jumpland uses 'storyboard' for 'name', which makes it a little clearer.
Nope. Looks like the raws for it are a little later than usual this week.
Well, I can't say it's the first time, but I'm incredibly excited for next week's chapter.
Although I really mostly can't wait until we finally see the other rival manga artist. It's killing me...
I'm guessing a lot of whether or not this is eventually licensed will be resting on how well Muhyo sells. Although with Neuro's art, it'd be a hard sell either way.
Judging by what we can see of his/her collar, possibly the kid in the witches hat that was with the Cervello in 174?
Yeah, I'll definitely miss it, though.
I'm glad to see the introduction chapters are mostly finished with the most recent chapter. It looks like it's going to be interesting watching how all these stories tie together.
A script and a few more pictures.
I've really enjoyed her voice so far. It's got the right mix of Chrome's social awkwardness and straightforwardness. I thought it was weird the anime used her voice for the rooftop scene and Hibari...
Here's the episode on Veoh?
The other manga is Blue Dragon ST (Secret Trick). It will be running in Monthly Shounen Jump and is by Shibata Ami.
