An ok ToC for me this week. Beelzebub's recent rankings appear to be on an upward trend, Bleach's are just awful. As for Mutou Black's first ranking - ouch. Even Soul Catcher(S)' was better. I bet Smoky B.B. will get a first ranking of... 10th. Just throwing that out there. 

Akira Toriyama's new series starts next week - and well done to those of you who could see that I was joking about not knowing who he was -.-. I think this'll be a short series.

Also, general consensus (which actually consisted of only one person - you lazy cunts) says that I should just stick to the current format and show changes from last week, instead of for the past 5, so that I what I shall do ^.^

Y'all remember Akira Amano, mangaka of Katekyo Hitman Reborn!? Well she's starting a new series called Ä“lDLIVE in the new Jump Live app, which launches in August and features exclusive content from Jump mangaka. Shinmai Fukei Kiruko-san's also returning and'll be in the app.

Finally, you may have noticed that Kuroko no Basket is highlighted in green. This is because I have chosen it as my Manga of the Month, so I'm gonna tell you a little about it and, if you haven't already, encourage you to check it out.

Kuroko no Basket (Kuroko's Basketball), written by Tadatoshi Fujimaki, is about 5 legendary basketballers, known as the "Generation of Miracles" , who each played for a middle school team, but went to different high schools. However, there was actually a sixth member called Kuroko Tetsuya, who now goes to Seirin High, and now wants to help Seirin become the best in Japan, with the help of his naturally-talented teammate, Tagami Kaiga, by taking on his former teammates - one-by-one.

Kuroko no Basket has been serialised since December 2008 and so far has 21 volumes released, with sales of over 9,000,000 copies in Japan. Volumes have frequently appeared on lists of best-selling manga in Japan. The first season of the anime premiered in April 2012 and ended in September 2012. A second season is also set to air this October.

That's it for this week, my laptop crapped out on me AGAIN, so I'm making use of the library and kinda had to rush this. Why can't Google make Blogger tablet/mobile/friendly? Thanks for reading - see you next week! ^.^

  1. Sket Dance, you shall be missed.

    Now get on with the third season, Tatsunoko.

  2. Bye, Sket dance. Since the manga translations are about 40 chapters behind it isn't over for some of us.
