I can't wait for the Eng release!
It seems like they didn't win... damn it! They names they're manga REVERSI ?? Very clever!!!

Thanks Knifeshade for the quick trans as always! I think you may be right that Bakuman is heading for the close. They completely skipped over the usual oneshot development filler and had Eiji's results posted right away.
Not sure what I think of it at the moment. I like Eiji's zombie manga, but so far not a fan of Ashirogi's. I guess since they made the story similar to Death Note, they didn't feel the urge to show them coming up with and developing the story.
Ashirogi might still have a chance to beat Eiji. Some back numbers:
Crow's debut vote count at #1: 401 votes
PCP's debut vote count at #1: 422 votes
Both times there was an editorial uproar over the numbers. Mashiro says that Fist of the North Star got over 700 votes once. Almost, Eiji!
If we go by Mashiro's relaxed face:
- they might have just edged out Zombie Gun.
- they got pwned, but Mashiro doesn't mind and it'll just make him work harder when Reversi gets serialized.
If we go by Eiji's silence:
- Eiji probably didn't like Reversi, and Reversi probably got owned in votes.
- he thinks it's better than Zombie Gun, to the point of being a threat, and Reversi probably edged out Zombie Gun.
Would be funny if they tied. But it's unlikely, since Eiji has the bigger fandom.
Most likely best scenario would be Reversi getting 1st as well but have less votes than Zombie Gun.
It's nice to hear that editorial departmen didn't explicitly say that Eiji's manga is better. That way, we can expect various outcomes, just like Knifeshade pointed out ↑ (thanks for trans, btw ). Although I can't imagine AM winning against Eiji in an one-shot duel....
Actually, there was something about third one-shot right? Lol I HOPE it's not a new super-mega-awesome-out-of-blue mangaka that beats both of them in votes
Awesome.i am new here but i would like to be regular from here on in this thread.Bakuman sure has its unique flavor and this week ya its quite a good chapter i suppose. More likely ashirogi muto will lose by a small margin.like several people predict, this manga will get an anime and this will most likely be ashirogi muto's last series in bakuman.It will beat zombie manga too i guess and ppl dont forget when pcp got serialized and its first chapter got 422 votes hattori san said they will come to kawaguchi's grave again once they get above 700 votes.i am sure that is gonna happen either with this first chapter or some other time after that.
Daaaaaaaaaaang!Loved this chapter!The story is developing nicely and the art was brilliant.I mean,it jumped right into my eye and pleased me greatly.Bakuman is getting good again.
Bakuman 152 is out here
Awesome chapter! I liked the slight humor, bits from Azuki, ED parts, quiet Eiji gave me sort of drama feel to it..
Now that ending sure is interesting. At first, I was 99% sure Eiji's winning with one-shot and AM will surpass him maybe somewhere in the middle of serialization... but! The whole "So now there's no way AM will beat Eiji" coming from ED after they were told the results, and Saiko's grin and.. that hope that they actually can do it! The whole mood seems to be indicating they can actually win...
I can't wait to see Bakuman jumping up in rankings, new arc is great so far.
I really enjoyed how this chapter had set up for the battle between the two as Eiji realizes that while he was aiming for a manga that will take over the whole world, AM comes out with a Manga that is directly challenging him.
Guys, get real. It's not like Ashirogi will suddenly get an anime in Bakuman 153. Before that happens they still have to get around 100-150 Reversi chapters and before that happens there is a helluva amount of time for other antagonists to (re)appear and fill in before we see AM vs Eiji.
