The new chapter's is a good move on the mangaka's part. Albeit very cliche and somewhat forced, it's nice to see a chapter with a relaxed pace. Also, I think I'm the only one who's happy with Manabizaki's character development. But I hope the mangaka stays true to Mana's original fighting style whilst combining the DBZ-ish power. It's also very nice to see such diverse & quirky characters. I think this is the mangaka's strong point. I don't think there's anybody else in JUMP but Oda who's managed to create characters like these at the moment.
Very good chapter this last one. A slower pace than the others... a period for the reader to relax and enjoy. Putting the characters in such abnormal location for this type of story is a good move. I really found it funny. This kind of nonsense can help the series.
I really hope it don't get canceled.
I agreed that recent chapters did got better. Let's hope that it'll escape from last place (well, I can't think which series should go last instead of SWOT).
Wasn't swot suposedelly going to take over Jaguar's place on the TOC? If that's the case its ranking could actually be a "false" ranking.
wow chapter 11 was funny, i guess they decided to take the gag route to keep things fresh and maintain popularity. good move though, i was really laughing at the entire maid cafe scene!
also development, we find out resolve can be used in a huge variety of ways, should be interesting.
chapter 12 got serious fast, i guess i like that aboutthis manga though. barely anything happens in between fights and they happen for no real reason at all.
maybe im the only person still reading swot...
chapter 13 had the best art so far, big, detailed close up panels on characters faces, way better coreography for the fight to. the plot even felt a little bit more real, slightly less rediculous.
yamikura was awesome to, i guess hes my favorite character.

Yeah the plot feels like it's getting better maybe this will save it from being canceled.
Very Good chapter!! the author has upped his game, it seems. I'm glad it's taken a better turn, although the polls say it's gonna get axed soon.
its getting kind of lame to me, better this than psyren lol.
The author is still missing his own distinct, personal style that will give readers a more personal feeling towards the plot and characters. That's my view on things now at least.
Chapter 13 had really nice art but 14 felt lazy only till the last couple pages. Sugita Naoya needs to keep up the improved art at least, SWOT is starting to lose me.
