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

    Evidently these nonsensical resets are what JUMP romance readers want, seeing as anything with a plot gets cancelled almost instantly.

    I'd venture a guess that Nisekoi could go on for as long as...

    Goku, don't twist my words just so that you can make funny emoticons laughing at an argument that didnt exist.

    I'm saying the editors can do whatever they want, and they can have any reason for...
  3. Poll: [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    Attempts to go all "pure rank" and overly analyze the individual placement of each series is ridiculous. The ToC is chosen by the editorial staff based on the rankings, but they can do whatever they...

    I don't think it tanked. YOKO just knows his audience, it's the Internet. I bet he was thinking many people on 2ch read but don't send in questionnaires, and they're his main audience.

    I think you should go ahead and start drawing it, designing the characters, start on that first chapter.

    Huh. I assumed it was JUMP since they posted it here. I guess that explains why she's using her shojo name again.

    Well, I want JUMP to have serious romance stories, but for Mizuki's success, this...
  8. Poll: [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    If she wants to succeed in JUMP, she needs to stop making good stuff. If it has too much plot and attention to character interactions, it'll get cancelled very quickly.

    the only formula for...
  9. Poll: [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    @rica What edginess and angst does early Naruto have? It's just a shonen story about a lonely kid finding hope and growing into a ninja. Seriously. What edginess? It's not GANTZ or Berserk or...

    Naruto is only getting hate now, it only started late on.

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

    The thing about Bleach is that there is a lot to be said about a series that everyone reads, but is no one's favorite.

    No but dude like, there's no plot. It's just a superman girl. It could not be more bland if it tried.

    Most shonen manga series do have a plot, and it's evident in the first chapter. Lady Justice...
  20. Poll: [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    the reason all the reviews are that is because it really doesn't have anything else to offer.

    the reviews lack substance because they're reviewing content that lacks substance.

    I'm just going to go ahead and clarify that this is a terrible idea.

    I mean, I know you're going to do it anyway, but just for future reference: this is a terrible idea.

    The whole reason Murata is redrawing it is because the original webcomic is so successful.

    Anime Expo is a con for general Japan anime/manga/gaming stuff, the fact it's at anime expo doesn't make it necessarily about anime. There's plenty of manga-exclusive things in AX.

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

    Jump's oversaturation only makes it hard for mediocre series to break in. A good series would have no problem getting in, evidenced by BnH's success.

    At the end of the day Jump is read by millions...

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

    Deidara, you're just confusing stylistic choices with quality.

    Fuuka's covers are everything that the manga isn't.

    artistic, thoughtful, respectful to the theme, calculated.
  37. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    I don't think it was a general strategic choice to make more of a JUMP anime, it was just that specifically the DB movies are successful so they figured they'll ride the money train, I think.

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

    A female lead is extremely viable because older boys and also girls read the magazine. But they are not the target audience. JUMP should not try to appeal to girls because it is a shonen magazine....
  42. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    What's so brilliant about a character's gender? For most media I can understand promoting diversity, but Jump is a shonen magazine, so I can dig the lack of female protagonists. As a young boy, I...
  43. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    But the fact we will all die isn't a joke at all.

    It's quite unfortunate, actually.
  44. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    Well, y'know how when a manga has really hot guys, you like it a lot?

    So it's exactly like that for straight guys, they want to buy the manga because Erina is hot.

    Get it?

    I mean, of course it feels that way: it's just a rip off of Death Note. But if you never read DN, and Ohba wrote a good version of Reversi, it would blow you away.
