Looking at Bleach, you can definitely tell that it plummeted.Quote:
Toriko's growth is very impressive.
Nura looks like it plummeted as well. Ouch.
Medaka. Wow, look at those mountains! It sure does love to yo-yo.
Naruto. Sket. Gintama. Bakuman. They're all impressive.
If you want mountains, look at Kuroko no Basuke, Not Medaka!! XD basuke's the dark purple and medaka is the light one, compare the two and the difference is clear
Naruto has been pretty consistent - regardless of the fact that it's "regressed" overall, being able to maintain almost a straight line at the very top is still a feat. Bleach on the other hand... Well, it's obvious that it's going south. Toriko's improvement is impressive, and Sket is another one that's been steadily on the rise. It's a pity that Mago used to pretty consistently be in the top half of the graph but is now more often than not at the bottom
Just finished chapter 1 of ST&RS and for me it's way more interessting than any of the other new series. Magico and Ikkyu where the only ones that where good at first, but compared to the first chapter of ST&RS, in my opinion they don't stand a chance. Ikkyu became boring and predictable and when I read magico now it doesn't have the same "air" around it like in the first...7 chapters or so. I'm not saying they're not good mangas, and I still have to read the new one, Harisugawa, but in my (!) opinion ST&RS is the most interessting one of the new series and the one that could go on for a while if both the mangakas continue with the same spirit they had when they worked on chapter 1. (But maybe it's better to wait for a few more chapters...still- chapter 1 is really good.)
I do have a DeviantART account, I'll PM it to you.
I noticed that the results of the 46th contest that were supposed to be announced early June, were announced on June 21st, so I suppose they'll release the results around the same time this month as well.
If anyone has any more info on this, that'd be great!
Just read ST&ARS! It was simply amazing! One of the best pilot-chapters I've read in my whole life I think.
Story was good and interesting. The art was awesome, and I fell in love with the characters right away.
not so sure about st&rs. i liked the chapter, but it wasn't so unpredictable at all. i mean what did you expect would happen? magico is quite boring now. the beginning was great with the love and everytime a new ritual thing, but now it is only fighting fighting.

Harisugawa in Mirror world #1 is now avaible: Click Here
Thx to Red-Hawk Scanlation
The bottom five are all veterans, and the new series are staying afloat (although it's probably because some aren't ranked yet). It's doing so well lately so it would only be time that Toriko would overtake OP. I'm selfishly that Oda-sensei is taking a hiatus, but it's for his health.
First it was Magico, and now it's ST&RS that's getting love in this thread. XD
I'm happy about Sket's rising graph but sad that it's the opposite for Mago.
I mentioned it in IRC a minute ago, but I really enjoyed chapter 1 of St&rs too. I really like the three leads, they may be typical slice of life characters, but I love slice of life manga. So it is a good fit.
Haven´t read St&rs.. Hope it doesn´t turn into a figthing manga by chapter 9 XD
