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

    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....

    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...
  4. [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...

  6. [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...

    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...
  9. [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.

    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.

  11. [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...
  12. [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...

    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...

    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.

    When I was 13, Ichigo 100% drove my heart nuts. And I don't think ecchi is a problem, if ecchi is what JUMP needs to keep a serious romance manga running, then so be it. All I'm asking is for stories...

    You should expect better from a WSJ harem. JUMP had incredible romance manga in Ichigo 100% and I"s, they had occasional filler chapters but the ratio of filler-to-plot was far far far far better...

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

    It is that fast paced. I don't know if you noticed it, but most of the hero's successes, and the hero's "destinied for greatness" moments in shonen manga don't show up until much much later. In fact,...
  28. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 8

    The thing is that BnH is very fastly paced and will have to change very soon. It can't stay a school manga for hundreds of chapters, and 20 chapters in Deku is already set out to be a successor for...

    To be fair, the entire last arc of Bakuman is a not-so-subliminal message of "we wanted to end Death Note with L and Light's fight, but the editorial department forced us to keep it going"

    Well, for those series, we can continue debating and there will be the test of time.

    Still, you don't really need the barrier to be flexible for this. You can make a barrier shaped like a submarine (or even just a box), and then use that to travel around in water.
