Yeah, I've always wondered about that. If he didn't intend for it to be Part 7, then why did he reuse the concept of Stands, and THE SAME CHARACTERS. I mean, how was he supposed to make a break from JoJo if his main supporting character's surname was "Joestar"? Though I heard someone on the JoJo forum say that when Steel Ball Run started, Araki had announced that he had plans for Part 7, and people weren't sure if Steel Ball Run was Part 7 or if he'd have Steel Ball Run and Part 7 go on at the same time. I guess it turned out that Steel Ball Run was Part 7, but he didn't delineate until volume 5 for some reason. Or maybe he did just retcon it because it WAS Part 7, whether he meant it to be or not.
Here's something interesting for whoever.
If you haven't seen that before, they show vomics, voice comics of lots of mangas. They have 4 parts for each one they've done. There are a lot I haven't heard of, but they did Toriko, Inumaru Dash, and Naruto. And they're doing a Bakuman one next month.
*Sniff sniff* I just finished Black Cat a week ago and I want more of Train Heartnet! ARGH! I hope Kentaro makes a part 2 of Black Cat. It was such a amazing manga, man can't believe it's finished and left it there. There are quiet a few things which need to be answered actually..hmm. He needs to return to make it again.
Hi ^^ I just joined. So is this like a Chat thread?
Think of it as the miscellaneous anime or manga thread. Things that might not fit into chapter/episode discussions.
Ah... Like... Shoujo-Ai ^^ there is no discussion thread for it T.T hm... Anyone here like Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni? Or Yuri?
Feel free to create a discussion thread for it. Just because there's none, doesn't mean that there can't be one
Hm... Good point ^^ I'll go do that now ^^
Just hit me but we don't have a Young Jump discussion thread do we?
I enjoy a lot that goes on there so it's to bad...
what are the stuff on young jump? Like, Doraemon and stuff?
Liar Game, Zetman, and Usogui too.
I always felt that Neuro should be in Young Jump, not Shonen Jump, it would have fit in much better there.
Elfen Lied used to be published in YJ. Actually it just hit me but isn't Captain Tsubasa currently being published in Young Jump?
