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

    To the first part, you should know I am also not attacking Lady Justice. I just wanted to explain to you why the reviews look like they do. Once you read it, you will understand why they looked like...
  2. Poll: [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    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...
  3. 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.
  5. Poll: [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    I mean, what were you expecting? The guy drawing superhero comics to not be into superhero comics? It'd be kind of like if it turned out that Tetsuya Chiba doesn't like boxing or Oda doesn't like...

    This isn't a western magazine, this is an eastern magazine. They clearly have different standards on what's acceptable than you.

    also, just for the record, this is the magazine that ran stuff like...

    The anatomy and posing is iffy compared to his normal drawings, you can tell he doesn't normally draw stuff like this. But I guess that's the kinda thing the editors believe you have to do if you...
  9. Poll: [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    I dont know or care about BC, but you have to read Kenshin. Seriously, it is way way way better than almost everything in the magazine now, it's a true shonen manga and it's exciting in all the ways...
  10. Poll: [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    You might have not have heard of it, but it was very successful and very well known.

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

    anyway, the...
  11. Poll: [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    I think it's cool. Mediocrely drawn gag manga are a crucial part of JUMP imo
  12. Poll: [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    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.

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

    The thing about buying it in English is that English sales don't really matter to a series' success, and as I've understood the author also gets a smaller percentage from them (due to publishing and...
  14. [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...

    The thing is -- and I realize there's only a homosexual subtext, nothing more -- most young guys (main demographic of manga online) are going to be relatively repulsed by that kind of thing. I'm not...
  16. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

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

    The latest DB films are undoubtedly far better quality works, but if you just don't like the new animation style, there's just...
  17. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    Much of what was great in DB Era would not be passable nowadays because they created everything that exists nowadays.

    just a note to people who watched DBZ as kids and don't actually realize how...
  18. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    yeah to be honest I'm just happy with anything that formalizes the retconning of GT.

    Sticky: [Info] Re: Volume Covers Thread - Part 1

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

    artistic, thoughtful, respectful to the theme, calculated.
  20. [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.
  21. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    does anyone else think Tosh kinda draws Nami like a mentally handicapped child?
  22. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    The guy was just the artist for Molester Man and Onani Master Kurosawa, he's not the author. The two stories are extremely touching and deep on an emotional level, they're definitely serious and...
  23. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    I think we are speaking about different things, read the edit to my post. I was not talking about what's viable, I am just talking about the most mainstream manga (i.e not just JUMP, but rather the...
  24. [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....
  25. [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...
  26. [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.
  27. [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?

    It's not "that easy", because it requires a lot of practice and skill. That being said, it's totally generic. There are many people doing it, look at any anime that came out in the last few years....

  30. [Help Wanted] Re: Would anyone being interested in doing a manga?

    Not many people look here often, you should go look somewhere else if you're that interested. Like fate/stay night fan artists all over the Internet, dA or tumblr or wherever it is they hang these...
  31. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    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.

    Regardless, I liked GH and I'm...

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

    I mean, Reversi is just DN with very slightly different mechanisms, ZombieGun/Crow are battle manga that may or may not work depending on if Eiji is as interesting as the manga claims, and PCP would...
  34. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    I don't think this one is meant to look like superhero comics, I think it's meant to look like western comics in general, which it successfully does.

    [Discussion] Re: What do you do when a manga ends?

    I don't think the ending of a manga delegitimizes all the chapters before the ending.

    It's like if the whole manga was great, but some chapter in the middle sucked, does that ruin it? No? Then why...
  36. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2015] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    Jesus Christ, who cares how precisely it reflects popularity? We're never going to know the exact chapter-to-chapter placement of each series and which series are "really" first place.

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

    I agree that the real success for manga is financial success, but even putting that aside, Bleach is successful as a manga with true artistic value.

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

    The point I'm trying to make is that all first chapters for shonen are nothing but tip-of-the-iceberg in terms of the real meat of the world, so it doesn't matter if the logistics of the events...
  39. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    Exactly, but not even precisely slowing down. It has to be fast-paced in the sense that there's action and more action in every chapter, and everything is moving super quickly, but the world building...
  40. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    I didn't say slow pacing. I said slow introduction of the world. Totally different, don't twist my words. It's like how Bleach had really fast pacing but we still didn't know ANYTHING about the world...

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

    Oh come on, Reborn wasn't cancelled. It had a proper ending final-battle-arc, it was a very natural ending that was predictable for a good 20 chapters before it came. No way it was cancelled.

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