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

    Sporting Salt has something of a unique concept, but I feel the execution is all over the place, eventually settling for something that is ferociously mediocre. The art feels rather average as well,...
  2. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 7

    Haha, I never thought I'd see the day... Quite the interesting list, at least at the end there.
  3. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 7

    While I think that may have affected things more in the past, nowadays I feel it's a combination of that and the issue I brought up earlier. One Piece's cartoony style puts it at odds with...
  4. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 7

    The character designs and art style appeal more to the mainstream. One of the "negative points" I often hear from people about One Piece is that they don't like the art style. It leans less towards a...
  5. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 7

    Pretty hyped for this new Obata manga. Glad it's something that we haven't really seen much of before (or at all) in Jump. Kinda curious if it will go the full Phoenix Wright route (they're even...

    [Mag Talk] Re: JUMP SQ News and Discussion

    Hooo, looks rather fun. Can't wait until December. I guess it's a sports oneshot, huh. I forget that every one of these oneshots are themed around a word.
  7. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 7

    So... Naruto is ending this week (ostensibly). The closer we get to it, the more I feel I'm gonna miss it, regardless of how bad its gotten lately.

    [Mag Talk] Re: JUMP SQ News and Discussion

    The two one shots or the nine? Either way, raws should be out soon so it shouldn't be too long. Since I'll be dealing with nisio's oneshot in jump first and TLRD, I'll probably get to scanlating the...

    Oh, I'm not passing judgement on the series as a whole, I'm just saying the scene looks bad. Things can have problematic elements to them and still be consumable (though something like this does give...

    Well this is a tricky line. For sure, his character could lend himself to doing such actions, but I think the problem is in how the author chooses to portray it. I mean, regardless of context, the...

    There's somewhat of a distinct difference. Not to say that one is better than the other, they're both pretty bad. The fanservice itself isn't what's being questioned (by me at least, because it's...

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

    There are quite a number of suggestive scenes (thus the reason why it (presumably) hasn't been circulated in English Shonen Jump until now). Are we reading the same manga?

    Well either way, I can't...
  16. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 7

    (just going to step in and say that we're not entitled to read manga *steps away*)

    I'm glad that Souma is getting animated. To be honest, there's very little you could do to actually screw this...
  17. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 7

    Waha. Nice get ESJ! (though really... My Hero Academy please... simply because I want to actually read it...)
  18. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 7

    Ah... finally, we can lay it to rest.
  19. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 7

    Magazines have demographics, it's a fairly simple concept. Shounen Jump is meant for a certain age of kids. What is deemed appropriate for kids is up to Shueisha, as we can clearly see from the manga...

    I think they're alright, but she seems to do better with male designs by comparison.
  21. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 7

    The way they ended Kuroko was a bit abrupt. Some people I asked felt it needed at least a chapter or so of padding to close it out, which is exactly what it seems to be getting in the form of some...
  22. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 7

    I felt Haikyuu was a really well handled 25 episodes.
  23. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 7

    I'm in the camp of "please wait a little longer before declaring Hero Academy a big success."
    Heck it could very well still be a failure, it's still relatively new. I'd kinda move that sentiment...
  24. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Because I like to see new jump manga actually get translated? So I could read them?
  25. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Actually, there should be enough chapters to compile into the next volume should it choose to end at 700.
    But yeah, I guess it really is up in the air, assuming Kishimoto doesn't go insane and drag...
  26. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    I just find it odd that we'd get an epilogue to the story by way of a movie without even reaching the actual end yet.
  27. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    It's still September, how could it not end within the year (theoretically)? The movie is in the winter after all.
    If anything, the nature of the battle does mean that it's reaching its end, because...
  28. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Well, the demographic is young boys, so...

    But this does bring up the idea that there's a disparity between people who vote for series and those who actually buy the volumes. If the appeal is wide...
  29. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Ah okay, yeah I can see that. I don't think it sold terribly, it seems volumes 1 and 2 sold roughly the same but this is relative so I'm not sure how these stack against the norm.
  30. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Hm, I don't know, I mean, I think every series will have its group of people that will be disappointed when a series ends, right? Unless I'm missing something else, online reaction probably wouldn't...
  31. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    You know, considering all the talk about authors that people want to come back but haven't, maybe something like this seems like the right direction. Assuming this new project is another manga line...
  32. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    It never occurred to me that they could just continue the Naruto movies while ending the Naruto manga... sheesh...
  33. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Hm, isn't the new movie technically supposed to act as the epilogue to the series? I'd say that would make up for the manga end being short as some are fearing. (Though it would be kinda silly to...
  34. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Hm, so I just read the oneshot and I didn't like it very much, for a few of the reasons posted above. But I'm kinda interested in where the premise would go though, so I do hope there's been some...
  35. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Don't want this to devolve into studio begging/predictions since we don't even know if it's an anime yet, but anything but this. I wouldn't wish this on a manga that I really disliked.

    That said...
  36. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    I kinda just disagree with the use/execution of the antagonist. That's what's been dragging everything down for me, so yeah, I can say the last 6-7 chapters have been rather boring, and we have at...
  37. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    People should also consider that the sensibilities in children's media in japan are a lot different than those in ours. Hell, the Kamen Rider and Sentai shows tend to have their characters bloodied...
  38. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    None of them look dark, we got a great set this time around.

    The superhero one could be interesting. Milquetoast main looks goofy enough to avoid that visual critique (for me at least).
  39. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    Never read Barrage, but I did like Zoo. Hopefully we'll get this on ESJ?
  40. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    No, it's a brand new series all in its own.
  41. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 6

    I don't think that would be much of a problem, they have enough content for perhaps a 24 episode run (big guesstimate on my part). Don't really see it going past than this election arc anyway.

    [Mag Talk] Re: Jump SQ (Shueisha)

    According to his interviews in one of the volumes (or maybe it was a databook, I forget), he really has taken to doing ecchi stuff. So, his next series would probably have that. With the amount of...
  44. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    ooo, now see, that's pretty neat. They should really be doing more things like this to drum up hype for the world cup rather than churn out a soccer series.
  45. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    So Murase is at it again with a oneshot this time, and based off the title it might be a sports manga, no? Can't really tell without a proper translation of it. He sure likes his sports.
  46. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    They're putting efforts into an ios app? Interesting... I do wonder how indicative this is of how they view the series.
  47. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Oh, well that's slightly better.
  48. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    Wow, what a step down from the Mago covers. I guess it's still only volume 1, but it leaves much to be desired.
  49. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    I don't think you should put a lot of weight on "Final Battle" because I'm pretty sure that's what's been used to describe this arc as a whole. We've already known this was going to be the last arc,...

    Oh I know, I just wanted to comment on the perception that Sharkbait brought up.
    I don't think it's something that's without merit to discuss.
