Oh. So we're done with the "collage" pictures on the spine now? They've been going for a while, if I remember right. Last year was Kochikame, right?
So it looks like we're just gonna do some kinda replication of part of the cover every time now.
Outside of that (fantastic) oddity, I've gotta love all the lists up from that. some unconventional and brilliant series in there
Well, it happened. I don't think its ever happened before in the history of Comiket, and that says a lot on how absurd this is. Comiket bars all Kuroko Circles from attending C83. That's a loss of about 900 circles.
I have to admit, I was speechless. Not that this will stop Kuroko's popularity, nor hinder it in any way...but for something to be so massively popular, and for the threats to be so serious is just such a clusterfuck.
Um... No, I think that might actually screw over Kuroko a huge amount. Speechless
I have to really question the Japanese police. How can somebody keep sending letters like this and not get caught?
By now I would have expected them to have caught this crook but the Mangaka is still getting death threats.
Maybe they should just make all the events and stuff overseas now lol. There probably isn't a big fanbase outside of Japan for Kuroko No Basket but it's better than nothing.

There's no direct evidence Ivins was the sole perpetrator. The US Government settled out of court with his widow for $2.5 million with no claim of liability, to avoid further litigation. A review board at the National Academy of Science called into doubt that Ivin was the perpetrator, and that their was insufficient evidence that the Anthrax originated from Ivin's lab. In addition, Ivin committed suicide while under surveillance, he was not named the sole perpetrated until after his death. He never stood trial, and remains nothing more than a suspect. The FBI declared the case close and have conducted no further investigation.
Getting a little off-topic there, now aren't we? xD //~Prince

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT YES OKAY COOL
A well-deserved success for Furudate
That's pretty much Toriko level for Hq!! already. I still remember the exact same announcement back in Toriko's early stages of the series. Great achievement by Furudate! Honestly, who would have thought the guy who got sacked with his quirky Yotsuya-senpai would come back with a sport series of all things and make it this big...? Amazing.
The editor of Haikyuu!! (male) will be walking around Jump Feista this year dressed up as the female manager from Haikyuu!!, Shimizu (female) and will be giving away some goodies related to the series if you tell him the keyword.
Because this Shimizu is a fake, he (she) unlike the original character will have a beard....

Hey, I was wondering if someone could help me out. I'm writing a paper for school about what affects popularity in shounen/seinen manga, and I want to include a section about the WSJ table of contents. The thing is, I know how the ranking system works, but I can't actually find any sources that can prove it. I know that they mentioned it in Bakuman, and I think I heard something once about Oda confirming that Baku's explanation was legit, but I can't find either one of those.
TL;DR: Can someone help me find the chapter(s) in Bakuman where they explain the ToC system, and anything that proves its legitimacy? Thanks!
