    Imo Dr.Stone is just a Enjoyable C/B list series.
    It's that one tv show that isn't particularly great, but its a good time passer than you don't mind watching. However, you would really feel any type a way if the show if it gets cancelled. It was just a fun, enjoyable watch. You never got too invested in it though

    I'm going to comply with poor quality because of this? Dr. Stone is an adventure, action manga and as such he is One Piece direct opponent, there is no escape. Notice that I'm talking about quality, not sales here. The clear question is why I said Naruto, which ended like crap, well, it was good until the beginning of shippuden. It is not impossible, there is Haikyuu now, which, as far I'm concerned, is in the same level as Slam Dunk in quality. My Hero Academia didn't get there yet, but it has potential to. Too early to say about The Promised Neverland, but it also has potential.

    "We never learn" was so cute in chapter 10, Takemoto is by far the cutest and my favorite. I just don't like how athletic girls has to be tomboy, the author should innovated a bit, but I think it is too much to ask from Jump series. In any case, this was the first chapter I really felt the romance side of the series although Takemoto had already showed glimpses. I enjoyed it and I hope the series get its ranking up a little bit.

    Dunno, haven't seen or heard anything about it for weeks. Maybe it is off for an entire year?

    I honestly didn't expect World Trigger's hiatus to last more than 2 months. I hope Ashihara is doing okay.

    Well, it's not like he's dying. He was able to draw the volume cover after all, and I believe the little extras as well.

    From what I heard the condition he's suffering from isn't something people just recover from. So even after this hiatus I still expect more hiatuses

    This is just feels weird in my eyes. Souma have had so many educational stuffs about meat/spices/how to coock certain ingredient, etc. But I never even once heard someone said Souma was an educational series. Just because it's about cooking, doesn't mean its not/less educational than science-y things.

    To praise Dr Stone just because it have some simple science feels quite "huh, what?" to me.

    "Could"? Come on, it's already the next big thing on hiatus world.

    So it's exactly like I said, huh? People set the bar too high imagining that any new manga could be the next big thing, get frustrated and then start hating haha.

    We only have a series like that in what? 5~10 years?

    You have to look for my posts if you want to read anything about Shokugeki no Soma here. People likes to talk about the bad side of the magazine here, not the good one, if you know what I mean.
    I didn't use the word educational, but I talked about it last Saturday. I even said that it was an underrated part of the series.
    --- Double Post Merged, May 19, 2017, Original Post Date: May 19, 2017 ---
    It is not my fault you don't look for improvement and quality and is satisfied with anything.
    That's the kind of mindset that Sunday and Magazine have, sticking with the same authors and playing safe. Jump editors are not like that and most of the readers are not, that's why the majority of the series are dropped in the act. They are looking for greatness 24/7.

    If the series has flaws, I will point that out, I am not accommodated.

    Nonono, I never said that you should be satisfied with it. We're all FAR from it. The thing is, you're completely biased for what you like and dislike. One thing is to be able too see flaws on both sides and make this noted. The other thing, which is completely different, is to plainly hate a series that simply did not satisfy what you expected.

    If you did not understand what I tried to say, just read your comments about WCS and Dr. Stone.

    What's wrong with Souma and Dr Stone being educational? That's a nice bonus

    What's the trading card MHA game Horikoshi keep talking about? Is it like a gacha game where you can pull for different characters?

    It's just a regular card game from what I can tell. I own one from volume 13's OVA bundle. It's what you'd expect.

    There's a twitter for it:

    Are you for real? It is two completely different series, what you should expect from a romance/slice of life series is not the same thing you should expect from an action/adventure series! That said, I did criticize We Never Learn or didn't you read when I said that it was not there yet? The more I talk to you, the more I think that you don't know what you are talking about.

    Respect to the Twin Star Exorcist mangaka for calling the Naruto/Bleach/One piece era his personal golden age of Jump on twitter. I'm always going to be bias towards those three series because they are my gateway in to anime/manga.

    Its a weird feeling seeing mangaka of this day and age saying that Naruto, Bleach and One Piece were a huge inspiration to their current work output since I grew up reading them as well. I obviously don't have that same feeling when Kishimoto and Oda said that Dragonball heavily inspired their works because obviously it was before my time and I didn't start reading it until years after it had finished its run while I was reading Naruto and One Piece as they were running in Jump.

    Man, how time runs fast... From 2020 onward we will have authors that wasn't even born when One Piece started. Oda must be feeling really old right now, even more when people treat him like an elder that was inspiration for them. XD
