Sena? Well, looks like this guy really love Basketball already, unlike Sena which knew nothing about Football...

BTW, he gets that ladder stepping training as well, just like Sena ^^

Not as in arts but he's prolly somehow pushed into a team (given the fact the girl is a team manager). Both shorties, both scaredy and both will prolly be the big deal in their sports

Take the fifth panel of page 32, and put it in ES21, you won't see a difference :D But yeah, this kinda gives out an ES21 feeling (Hazuki reminds me a bit of Hiruma, with her black notebook, money and it seems a "everything for the win" personality), which is not necessarily a bad thing, imo :oh ES21 won't last forever (unfortunately :darn) so having a spare one could be nice.

Anyway, I liked it enough to be motivated to translate it, so you guys can go check it out if you want :amuse

Re: Dogashi Kaiden by Hamada Kosuke

Yeah, I liked the first impression this manga showed us with this opening chapter. It gave me several moments of being shocked. The only mangas that gave me these kind of impact opening were ES21, SlamDunk, Mx0, GantZ, Great Teacher Onizuka and One Piece.

Hope it will last as long as SlamDunk did, coz I'd be mightily dissapointed if this turned out to be yet another cancelled project...

Off-topic: I've seen 3 cancellation in the period of 2 months. Geez~. Is being laid-off possible in the mangaka profession or something?:p

Re: Dogashi Kaiden by Hamada Kosuke

Copied from the RTS thread:

I don't see much hope for this.

The first chapter has really nothing interesting about it. The introduction of the chapter made me think it was One Piece, basketball edition. Replace Shanks for the man, Luffy with the child protagonist and the straw hat for the basketball. The characters are boring and really uninteresting. A young protagonist with no balls, no confidence who wants to accomplish something big... Where have I seen that before? The comedy in this manga isn't really... comedy. It's just not funny. The "I WAS SAYING THAT ALL ALONG" jokes can only work for so long

I usually read a few chapters to see whether or not I'd like the series, but I won't for this. There's nothing that shows me this is going to be anything good, so chapter 1 will be my first and last chapter read for this series.

Re: Dogashi Kaiden by Hamada Kosuke

I have always asked myself how people come up with criteria to drop a manga after ONLY 1 chapter. Anyway everyone his own point of view... -> I did it too eg one piece and now I love it all the way

Based on the raw I didn't have a bad feeling but

Gonna read the chapter tonight and I'll know more, just to know what's the best quality scan?

Re: Dogashi Kaiden by Hamada Kosuke

Wooo!!! Awesome first chapter, I'm definately gonna stick with this until this ends. Gotta love the manager, though to me, she doesn't really remind me of Hiruma.

Mix in a lack of any potential to become anything worthy, boring characters, too many typical shounen clichés, mediocre art, and voila. This is a series that doesn't have much hope of becoming anything [good] worth reading. That's why 1 chapter was enough for me to decide to stop.

[edit] SCX is a LQ, MangaAddict is a decent MQ.

Re: Dogashi Kaiden by Hamada Kosuke

If you take Eyeshield and take out everything that was original and cool about it and make it about a sport that's been overdone in the manga world, you get this. I really hope it dies. Normally I wouldn't care it being in Jump, but when unique mangas like Usagi and Sket Dance are at risk of being cancelled, fuck it. We don't need another basketball manga. This is trying to be Eyeshield and it just isn't. The setup is EXACTLY the same as the first chapter of Eyeshield. I'm sorry, I'm just not buying it. Good artwork can not make up for a generic story.

Re: Dogashi Kaiden by Hamada Kosuke

I guess this guy will be a shooting guard, since Michael Jordan was. The manga does not seem to go very deeply in the basketball details.
Same here, it reminds me of Eyeshield 21, but it is not so fun.
Only, the unexpected turn of events was fun. In case like that we often discover that the girl is the daughter of a yakuza and the family of the boy cannot refuse. Here, the girl is the heir of a rich family, maybe the parents are employed by the Minagawa, so thez conclusion will be the same.
I will read the second chapter to give the manga a second chance.

Re: Dogashi Kaiden by Hamada Kosuke

Read the chapter

First of all, I wouldn't compare this to sket dance or usagi. This is a sports manga that can't be compared with those two. If you wanna compare it at least with something, compare it with the succeeded slam dunk, PoT, Es21 or the failed over time, hands, ko sen. Yeah frustrations of beloved mangas that are in a threat of being cancelled can make you negative and hard towards other mangas (I can speak about it since mx0 was cancelled before usagi, sket dance,...)


Well this is only one chapter far and as for all those sports manga it isn't easy to say where this will go to. I got a decent feeling with this because at least haruyoshis character was outlined a lot: we know why he loves basketball, we know why he failed, we know why the manager is interested in him, etc and that's a true + because you don't see that a lot in sports manga. For now I can't say if it'll succeed or not, it isn't easy to predict these kind of things with sports manga (eg over time, imo this one had the potential of becoming the best sports manga all time but it failed and we got to live with it)

Re: Dogashi Kaiden by Hamada Kosuke

Maybe I am just put off by the fact that Basketball is boring to me.

Re: Dogashi Kaiden by Hamada Kosuke

I for one can vouch that this is not really comparable to any other series at all. Well, we can't even say that this manga could meet up with standards that sports mangas like ES21 and SlamDunk has set this early, but I still think it will be a good read. Let's at least wait for the chapter where we get to see the protagonist to play in a team.
