Double Arts by Komi Naoshi
This is a new series that began in WJ 2008 #17. The author is Komi Naoshi (古味直志). He has previously published several award-winning one-shots in Jump.




positively suprised

discuss it

Summary
A boy and a girl are forced to join hands for all eternity!? In a land ravaged by an epidemic known as "Troy", the only people with healing arts capable of stopping the seizures caused by the disease are the Sisters. Although they have a high resistance to the disease, they are searching for a person who is truly immune, if they exist, so that they can find a cure. The main character is Sister Elraine, one of the Sisters who becomes infected with Troy. But, when she touches Kiri, a seemingly ordinary boy, her seizures stop. Could he be the one!?

Check out the Chapter 1 RTS here!

a new wsj serie that's not been posted

about what? based on the raw: some girl has healing abilities but she seem to take over some illness. She feels bad but when a boy touches her then she feels better. But they have to touch each other permanently. Suddenly they encounter a villain and have to fight him without leaving each other

it looks pretty good

The lapse has been corrected. Thanks for the reminder!

The series looks really interesting, and the art is very cute. I haven't read it properly though. Not long ago, xi0 and I were just discussing this author's one-shots and how great they were. Amazing that he now has a serialised work! Here's a news article about Komi-sensei. It basically says that even the Jump editors were surprised at his talent. The only other newcomer to have performed so well in the competition is Matsui Yuusei-sensei (Nougami Neuro). So, I really hope this series gets the interest it deserves and do well!

In case anyone's interested, Komi-sensei's previous one-shots are:
  • island, published in Akamaru JUMP 2007 winter (award-winning debut story)
  • Koi no Kamisama, published in WJ 2007 #20
  • Williams, published in WJ 2007 #49

You can probably find the WJ one-shots in the old 2007 Jump Scan dump.
Williams and Island were a nice suprise and the mangakas name reminded me of someone/something

Good to know more, thanks a lot kirimi

I hope this manga gets its interest because imo this is the manga that's been the best one newcomer for awhile (maybe in a span of 2-3 years)

You're really starting to get a patent on this line.

Yeah true, but this one gave the most positve among all

though I know it could fail in some seconds, other dissapoint me in the beginning and suprised me later on: mx0, reborn eg, others suprised me in the beginning and dissapointed me later on: sket dance, Hitomi,...

but this is a very awesome (among good and awesome) start - lemme say it that way

nice banner btw

Well the art definitely doesn't look bad, and the chemistry between the boy and girl could be interesting. But I'm not gonna get excited about it just yet.

And yes, my banner is quite awesome.
Rookies, now there's one heck of a Jump manga that's tons better than 90% of current serializations.

I like this manga,it's interesting & the artwork is quite good.Out of the 3 new series on WSJ,Double Arts & Nurarihyon no Mago are the ones that really pique my interests(Bari Haken not look that interesting,but maybe I'll just give it a try).

The plot to this one is definitely original, hard to tell if this kind of thing will fare well on the TOC though.

Indeed you can't know, you could say it all depends on the japanese

anyway a scan came out:
I really wonder where the plot will go to? Is troi just a small part? Are the gazelle assasins behind it? -> interesting plot when I read the scan

seems great. I just hope that there's not going to be a story only two main characters.

Can't say for sure but I don't think so. There's other sisters - better and stronger (as in healing abilities, if you could call it that way) ones than elraine - and the gazelle assasins which will play a main role for some reason

The Sisters aren't healers Koen...they take the virus into their own bodies because they have some sort of built in resistance to Troi from birth. They're sacrificial lambs really. Because of their resistance they are able to live exponentially longer than people who don't have the resistance, thus them being deemed "healers"...but they really aren't.

This is what I inferred from the first chapter however, I might end up being wrong.
