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

    "they will never admit it". You're assuming.

    The thing is people will go on about the 8 week rule, and stuff about how it reflects popularity greatly, but ultimately the point is that it's nothing...
  2. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    Someone pays attention! That question really needs more reposting all over the internet.



    So excited to have these two in particular join the site, whatever they do should be worth a look on...
  3. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    No, but then it's not the same sort of comic. Comedy with Volleyballs in it, rather than a sports manga about volleyball. Tiny, tiny run, but one of those odd failures of the mid-to-late 00s that was...

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

    For Jump as an entire label (encompassing Grand, SQ, Young, Saikyo, et cetera, et cetera), yeah To Love-Ru is a big deal, and if it didn't leave Weekly Shonen Jump it'd almost definitely be the...
  6. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    But here's the thing, for Jump, that's HUGE, you can't underplay this. Romance has always been something that only has short runs in Jump. Unless you're huge, like Kimagure Orange Road, Strawberry...
  7. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    Holy crap, I've never even noticed that series on the site (but then I'm only reading I-shojo, Poop Kitty, Kiss x Death and Don Patch on there at the moment, just cause of how long it takes to read a...
  8. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    Murase returns to Shonen Jump? I guess Mongrel's failure stung a bit over in WYJ.

    On a side-note, in just under 3 months Nisekoi will become the longest-running Shonen Jump romance comic of all...

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

    3 volumes to go till Nisekoi's at par with Strawberry 100%'s record length. Oh god that's exciting. It's even less when you consider uncollected chapters.
  10. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    It's an attempt to be socially conscious, which is no bad thing. It being delayed instead of cancelled is clearly the right choice, even if it seems drastic. There's nothing wrong with being overly...
  11. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    Unless I've been super mistaken about how anime studios work when licensing a show from a publisher, Shueisha didn't dictate the budget of the anime at all, so that's not the best argument.
  12. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    Gonna throw this out here: It shouldn't be an issue to discuss any one jump series here a significant amount. it's relevant, and saves so many members having to bounce between countless thread for...
  13. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    So it'll seem like what the author was going for all along and as such would be totally canon if and when the writer writes it because that's how canon (as stupid a phrase as that is) actually works?...

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

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

    I never much cared about Strawberry 100%(it's the longest running Jump romance of all time, so clearly I'm in the minority), but yes, this. Mizuki is a treasure, and it'd be great to see her back...
  18. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    This, really. Even with series I know are bad, completely deserving of cancellation or being forgotten or whatnot, I can't say I hate them. Hating's a big thing to do, and no comic I've read in Jump...
  19. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    Oh shit, that's a hard one. Like my favourites change all the time, but that might just be because of how bloody many series i've read. Still, let's try. Like... favourites, not what I actually would...
  20. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    Correct. I get Int'l Jump each week from viz to keep up to date on a bunch of stuff, and then import volumes of stuff whenever I can. The market owes me nothing, so I don't take from it for free. I...
  21. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    Oh no, I've only ever bought a couple volumes. I stopped doing the whole piracy thing a couple years ago, see, and had to decide then and there what series i'd try and keep up with, and FT was the...
  22. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    I'll give you that I probably can't point out similarities from the last couple of years, but that's mostly because I stopped reading Fairy Tail a good while back to save myself money and to stop...
  23. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    Dude, no. Don't downplay hentai artists. You get some amazing artists who prefer to work in that area, tosh is more a marker of a weird time where anime-esque designs and uniformity in aesthetic was...
  24. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    I don't think many people really rate jurassic park, but you're mixing up simplicity with being shallow. Harry Potter revels in simplicity, it doesn't overcomplicate itself (outside of the last book,...

    Go Nagai is a revelation. Most Seminal works are Harenchi Gakuen (unavailable in english), Mazinger Z (available in english, but not legally), and Devilman (I'm just gonna make an assumption and say...
  27. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    Yeah I don't know that I should have even responded.

    Pioneer is almost definitely the wrong term for Dragon Ball. What it is, more than anything, is seminal.

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

    I'd argue against this for the simple reason that Viz have re-released Dragon Ball umpteen times, it's circulated through a whole new generation, and it *still* does well. It *still* endures. And...
  29. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    Dragon Ball does owe a lot to the series that came before it (as well as Journey to the West, natch), but it should be observed that it did things hugely different in its approach to action and...
  30. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    That's more like it. When you justify your hyperbole I can actually respect it a lot more. Whilst I wouldn't go in for terms of mastery (or assessing John Grisham on such a level), but you've got a...
  31. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    *sniffle* don't remind me. Poor baby, giving us such hope right before crashing to the bottom of the ToC and never recovering. It was like... instantaneous decline, really.
  32. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    How is it you can type so much without really saying anything? I mean I don't dislike the series (though I hardly love it on such a hyperbolic scale as you clearly do), but... I mean... C'mon give...
  33. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    believe it or not I'm gonna kinda miss Judos. It tried too hard with the humour and was ultimately crippled by the artist, but I had a soft spot for it all the same
  34. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    literally only a few months off of it when it ended. I have plenty of reasons for not like Rosario, but its art is an unfair one to judge on over the first couple of years. The author grew a...
  35. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    Eyeshield 21 as a manga is amazing. Like.... Top 20 Shonen Jump comics of all time amazing. It has a shaky start art-wise, as Murata developed a huge amount week to week, especially over the first...

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

    were fansubs ever that much of a transformative thing for people here? It might just be me, but they've always just seemed like shittily produced background noise over the last decade and change I've...
  38. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    I...... Nah. I mean A) people being here because of those anime pulling them in doesn't mean they're good, and B) I'd bet a lot of people could draw a much earlier line from something like Dragon...
  39. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    I'll second Dr. Slump being a great adaptation. The Kochikame anime and Play Ball are ones I'm pretty fond of, too.
  40. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    Well brilliant, I've been waiting for Akimoto to release his next one-shot. I actually kind of prefer that stuff to Kochikame, in a weird way.
  41. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    Basically as with anything here it's all misunderstood information that gets treated as fact. This is how people end up thinking Naoya Matsumoto is Yoshio Sawai's wife, that Gintama is ending...

    That's me! I'm like the one fan of Amon Dai in this bloody place. Thanks for the heads up



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

    My Hero Academia *is* a huge step forward, yes. And there is a lot more focus on characters in panels. But some character designs are just really busy, all extra details or chunky bits that don't...
  44. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    I didn't say they were bad. But they are super busy more often than not, and I feel that does a disservice to his capabilities as an artist. We've had some recent designs like Uraraka that suggest...
  45. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    It's weird that the main thing I take from that (frankly, amazing) Jump Heroes poster is that Horikoshi's art shines best when it doesn't have to deal with his designs. I mean just looks how well...

    Judos and Hi-Fi Cluster have some genuinely well-designed covers, makes it all the sadder that they've floundered
  48. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    Sales don't make a series good, no, but they *are* indicative of quality, even if that quality is just that the thing in question is marketable. Which... I guess means they're good for something.

    Isobe's debut year being so strong is such a pleasant surprise, considering it's a gag manga in Jump (Which traditionally don't sell huge amounts, save a few special exceptions). I hope it continues...
  50. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    I-Shoujo really needs credit as a solid runner in Jump+. Like I'd even go as far to say that it's the best original series on the service
