Global Moderator Notice:

As you lot have no doubt realized, this forum is currently in need of a new mod
I can not say when a new mod will be chosen, as this process takes some time and deliberation

Until then, however, I (and other mods?) will be happy to help

Anything you wish stickied: please tag me in this (or another) thread (with a link directly to the post in question), or PM me (again, with a link)
I can't stress enough how much this will help - saving time for everyone/getting what you need done quickly
I am pretty busy at the moment and this thread is not one that I normally hang out in - so am likely to miss TOC releases [for example]

I trust that you can all behave nicely until we have decided on a new mod, you lot don't need constant parenting do you?!?

Please report all posts that offend, PM/tag me (or another global if I'm offline/unresponsive) with anything you need done (posts stickied/polls created/whatever) and try to survive the [hopefully brief] period of freedom
❤ ~ zimbardo

This thread have been civil and healthier than ever the past two week.
Is ironic, because mostly, the guys who said that after Buranchi left the thread went to shit didn't post here lol
But to be fair, when the TOC is posted this will turn into a shitstorm like always

I have the Shonen Jump # 37-38 of 2014

World trigger improved a lot.
In some ways , Yozakura Family give me some vibes in term of both of then have a bad start in term of popularity and sales.

Oda is the only one I don't like.
Maybe Daisuke's Deku looks more like the wind hero than Deku

Kishimoto using the same illustration instead of drawing a new one, even if just a sketch, is baffling and kinda disrespectful imo

It was not drawn with the exposition in mind, it was probably made before it was even confirmed. Announcing Kishimoto would be one of the veterans to send a special illustration only for it to be a recycled one just seems a bit lazy

In my opinion it makes sense, it already has a nice one to use, because it won't be again =

Then, to each their own.

The exhibition was announced in December, and the issue of GIGA containing Kishimoto's art came out in January. I'm pretty confident they knew the same art would be used for the exhibition.

I don't like it(tokoyami looks like shit and I think kishimoto put more effort in Naruto and shikamaru than the MHA character) but I don't think is disrespectful.
The best one were Kubo and Tabata.They draw a characters that looks like it could be draw by Hori but you still could see their style

How do you know he didn't make it for the Exhibition, and we just got to see it early? What if Horikoshi himself wanted this drawing in the exhibit?

Either way, its a great illustration, and don't see how this can possibly seen a "disrespectful". You're calling it disrespectful when i highly doubt Horikoshi is even worried about him not drawing something brand new

yeah I was seeing posts on sns saying some bookstores are closed due to the emergency order, and Shoseki doesn't track online sales so numbers might be lower than usual.

are you sure? was sure the new lockdown only makes non alcohol stores close early, not completely. Dont see how bookstores would be affected.
