    Interesting. Looks like I'll give this a shot when it comes out. Speaking of giving things another shot, I finally caught back up on Kanojo Okarishimasu. MC is still painfully spineless and Mami is just the worst. I'm not a huge fan of Ruka, but the way the MC is treating her is pretty awful, even for him.

    Wait, the new series is called 7 x 8 = 56? Just when I thought it'd be difficult to top some of the absurdly long names light novels and WSJ's Seiji Tanaka have come up with, but this may take the cake if true. Is the title only numeric, or does it also have an official title with words instead of numbers?

    So This Man got transferred to Magazine Pocket too? From what I could see, This Man sales rankings have been about half to 2/3 what Sensei Sukidesu's volumes were when they were first released. Although I've never read This Man, I do think it's a pretty good strategy to move some series that could still potentially sell decently to their online platform rather than just ax them altogether.

    From Karin Sora, writer of This Man:



    • The transfer is because vol.1 sale didn't meet the goal.
    • They have been promised enough volumes to finish the story in full, so it will get a proper conclusion and volume releases.
    • The questionnaire results have been pretty good, especially in recent arcs, but it didn't get reflected onto sales.

    ----------------------------

    On an unrelated note, I like the start of Shichiha Gojuroku (7x8=56) quite a bit.

    I completely forgot about Blue Lock. I wonder how the reception has been since WSM seems to be moving away from spokon....

    Interesting. It's not often that the situation for a series is described so quickly and concisely by the author. Although I don't follow it, good for him that they're letting him finish his vision on their mobile platform. Basing the decision off the first volume, unless it was way under the number, just goes to show how competitive this magazine is right now.
    It'll be interesting to see how it sells. It hasn't been immediately trapped in the bottom of the TOC like Kiss & Cry was, so it at least has that fact going for it. Has anyone here read any of it and have any opinions on whether they think it's good or not?

    you got a link? i'm interested cause I've checked out Killer Killer. I like Gambler Paradise but the art is a humongous disappointment. It doesn't fit the series at all. Wouldn't of bothered if Kodaka wasn't involved.

    Edit: found it, it was good. Magazine has a great line up with some gems in the pocket app.

    Looks like Kishuku Gakkou no Juliet has 2 million copies now. Hopefully the anime will help give it a nice boost. I've really been enjoying the adaptation so far

    the backlogs soared right after the anime premiered which mean definitely a good boost from the anime

    Well, better late than never. Wonder if Bones will adapt this one like they did Soul Eater.

    That would be the best case scenario. It would be great if it's them.

    So, I saw this tweet and decided to check out the manga, I'm 3 volumes in and like it quite a lot, even though I have 10 other on my reading list that I haven't started.

    I'd say the manga has gone by mostly unnoticed, surprisingly enough, even if it's from an author with a very popular previous work. It's one of my favorite weekly shonen series for sure. It would be nice if the anime ended up being good, it would help raise awareness about the series.
