I find Rororro’s position kind of weird, since... well, the author’s more known for Boku no Kokoro at this point. XD That manga used to run in this magazine but moved after 5 chapters, apparently. Probably for the best.Rororro! #6
Mairimashita! Iruma-kunOkay, so if I may ask...
I've been working on my Iruma-kun table. However, when I got to Volume 13, I realized that the first week ranked 48th in the Shoseki charts, meaning that it'll show up on Oricon for that week. However, I have absolutely no way of accessing the Oricon numbers to get a better sense of the data, so I'm not sure as to what to do.
Holy shit, thank you so much. I'm sorry I deleted my comment, I thought I was being a bit too intrusive by asking that. But thank you!Mairimashita! Iruma-kun

I keep forgetting that all of these series are actually around since I never see the raws posted in the usual spots. Has anyone here read any of them and/or have any opinions on if they think any of these series will last or they'll become bottom-dwellers?Shousetsuhon Darwin's Game - Flag Game
Suiyou Dou Deshou
Tsukiji Saikyou Sushi Densetsu - Nigiri no Umitarou
Flag game is probably not here for the long run i believe and it only takes a few pages either way. Suiyou is probably the same since its a collab project.I keep forgetting that all of these series are actually around since I never see the raws posted in the usual spots.

Can you specify what those "places" are?Flag game is probably not here for the long run i believe and it only takes a few pages either way. Suiyou is probably the same since its a collab project.
Tsukiji feels very old school, i dont mind its a comedy yankee series with sushi in the middle not bad but idk how it will do, i have seem people in jp places i look at praise it - its first volume is set for april. Baku kun similar this yankee comedy series, wait and see for it.
I probably should have specified from the beginning - twitter, 2ch and those sorta of places.Can you specify what those "places" are?
In general, that is kinda how Champion functions. It's an odd mix of extremely new manga designed for the current climate with throwbacks to the older days.

Because of what you wrote, I read all of available do-chokkyu, and I must say it's a very good read. I laughed a lot. I like this kind of romance.So I read Do Chokkyuu from start to finish this time. Honestly, it's really fantastic.
Seeing Shinichi and Mako loudly barrel through misunderstandings and romcom tropes with their misunderstandings was really fun to read. It's the opposite of Kaguya, as where in that manga, Kaguya and Shirogane are smart high-schoolers who love each other but deliberately get around confessing their feelings through mind games cause they want the other to confess first, this manga has dumb high-schoolers that aren't afraid to say what they think at all (and loudly at that). As a result, this manga goes to places I've barely ever seen in any romance manga by chapter 20, and it's honestly a really hilarious ride all the way. Though the comedy and some of the characters may not be everyone's cup of tea, I found myself frequently laughing each chapter. It helps that the manga's got a pretty damn hilariously over-the-top supporting cast, for the most part. The cliche-breaking, trope-twisting pace and progression and humor is what makes this manga really good for me.
What makes this manga really great for me, however, is that, in my layman opinion, this is honestly one of the healthiest couples I've ever read in a manga. Much of this is due to Shinichi's actions concerning his relationship with Mako. For a dimwit such as himself, he can be surprisingly responsible. When she first confesses, he rejects her - not because he doesn't like her, as he's made clear to others before - but because he doesn't know much about her and so wants to be friends so he can get to know her. He wants to make sure they're compatible first, which they are. Once they fall in love and become a couple, he puts his all into the relationship because he really cares for her, and is proud of it as someone like he can be. And he helps Mako take more pride in their relationship as well. Both of them make sure to communicate with each other about their problems, in addition to making sure that they don't want to do anything that their partner won't be comfortable with, especially when it comes to sex. Chapters 20-21 are surprisingly informative, in addition to just being the best chapters of the manga, as it made me really love our duo of idiots as a couple.
Granted, it's not perfect. My biggest worry with this manga is that it might run out of steam: I'm hoping that the main couple don't just become this punchline for sex because they're more than that - sex is just one aspect of their relationship. I liked the Christmas omake more than the Halloween omake for that reason. I hope the author's used her time spent trying to find a new publisher to come up with sone new arcs for Mako and Shinichi to explore as a couple. It's harder to write characters as a couple but I want to see them go through various trials and come put stronger because of it. Or she can focus on the dynamic between the new side couple featuring Mako's sister which, while more traditional, makes a very nice contrast to the main couple and is also progressing well. There's a lot that she can do, with this second chance, but ultimately, I don't want this manga to overstay it's welcome. I've really loved it so far and I'm excited to see it return next month.
I hope the MangaCross version doesn't change things too much. I'm fine with it expanding on some chapters and showing more sides to our characters, just as long as it more or less remains the same. The author made changes to Chapters 16 and 17, which I honestly think help make the manga flow better, since the mention of sex in the former, while hilarious, doesn't flow right. I really hope that Chapters 20 and 21 remain the same or expanded, though.
This is really long (i have a habit of writing more than I expect) and I apologize for that.
