I would also echo all the above basically and generally recommend writing very short stories, makes you really confident about ending books and feeling good.

Hi Kat!

I've met a lot of closet writers over the years, especially of the fanfic persuasion, have yet to meet a closet artist. Consider us part of your closet whenever you feel ready!

Welcome to the zone. Most of us also don't know what we're doing on any given day, it's a living

Uh trying to keep up with new releases so Kaiju No 8 and Spy x Family and Hard-Boiled Cop and Dolphin.

I had just finished reading all of Act-Age when stuff happened and it's gone so that kind of sucks. So now I'm trying to read all of Demon Slayer since everyone loves it (I do not but it's the thing so should know it).

Just finished Promised Neverland, I left it for a while so the chapters could get ahead, very much loved that series. The ending is something.

Don't know Saint Oniisan, I'll go looking for it

Gahhh procrastination is so tough!!! I can relate hahaha, especially when there are good new manga releases  :dance:

What's new releases you're watching? Give me more procrastination fuel!

Manga Talk / Feelings on new Shonen Jump series?

With the SJ app now allowing for simultaneous release and finally getting access to the new series that only live for 15 chapters and never got translated in the past, I'm trying to keep up with all the ongoing and new series that are launched. Curious if anyone else is doing similar or wants to talk about some of these new stories and initial impressions. I find this especially fun because usually a series won't get talked about much until it starts to pick up steam and a subreddit and all that.

Currently, Shonen Jump has these listed as the new-ish series:

  • Kaiju No 8
  • Undead Unluck
  • Ghost Reaper Girl
  • Spy x Family
  • Phantom Seer
  • Me & Roboco
  • Hard-Boiled Cop and Dolphin
  • Mashle
  • Magu-Chan: God of Destruction
  • Moriking
  • High School Family
  • Burn the Witch
  • Time Paradox Ghost Writer (ended)
  • Bone Collection (ended)
  • Guardian of the Witch (ended)

But Kaiju No 8 dropped a new chapter! Why care about anything else?

My quickest version of thoughts:

1) It's not good
2) It's not bad
3) Somehow I read all of it
4) I don't know how to feel about that time. Like it's not like I lost that time...but also I didn't really enjoy it? It just sort of happened...

It's a bit all over the place. I think the shock value of the brutalist art style, permadeaths with no restrictions, and constant one-upping hype are enough to keep it together. I understand a lot of people really do love it and there's a lot of passion there, I'm curious if it will have any lasting value long-term or if it will be this adrenaline rush that ends and everyone moves on.

The main character loses his motivation pretty early on, there's a lack of any time to build meaningful connections between the characters (they're always constantly just fighting), and there's not really any larger narrative going on (Gun Devil is pretty flimsy). The last 20 chapters or so have been a constant barrage of "but wait!" type twists, like just twist after twist which certainly feel interesting in the moment but when you stack this many they start to lose their impact and they won't last longterm when you look back on them (like everyone remembers Ace dying, I can always remember the Claymore moments/twists many years removed, whereas I already can't remember most of the characters who died in this series or why the twists mattered to the larger narrative).

It will definitely get an anime though, I would be shocked if it didn't. The level of passion from the fans merits it alone, and I'd be very curious how they would work out the pacing of the anime (because the manga moves incredibly fast, has huge images, and almost no text) as well as the art style and translating Fujimoto's drawings.

Hey Karlin, wish you luck in writing anything that fits in Journey to the West. That sort of story type doesn't really exist in modern English writing as a genre (our closest is epics but nobody really writes like that anymore). I'm also one of the people in here who has no current talent for visual art so I write me some books, but I am also pretty into manga so let me know if I can help bridge the gap

Hey Notivago, welcome to the forum. Horror and werewolves in particular have been pretty fringe for a long time so fun to see someone trying to bring more of it back (it's also definitely a European/American thing so yeah, Japanese manga doesn't have much).

I studied Gothic Horror a bit back in my university days if you ever want to talk critical theory.

Hey Midnight, welcome to the forum.

Don't be fooled by all these people, some of us are just slackers with no projects or a lot of procrastination powers who lurk around and chat.

...I should really get back to my writing...but Shonen Jump app has the back catalog...
