Otoyomegatari ch1

I feel like the font for the dialogue should be like super fancy and royal-ish just to keep up with the art.

My knowledge about 19th century mid-Asia is approximately -1, so I'll be fumbling my way across this. The clothes are insane though holy crap.

Yeah, it's not like he's desperate for Shueisha's money. Togashi could have ended HxH after Greed Island and concentrated on recovery/lived off the success of his and his wife's work.

If anything it's the opposite. With Naruto finally ending (Holy crap, Naruto is FINALLY ENDING) it leaves One Piece as the only major title in JUMP. I can only imagine weekly sales to fall through the floor unless Shueisha find something FAST to fill the gap.
I don't think they're in a big hurry, although they'll probably start working on that soon. I'll give it a year after Naruto ends before Jump goes into full panic mode, where they throw a million things at the wall and hyping the Toriko out of whatever sticks.

So how many chapter did Togashi release since June anyways?

too lazy to find out
We got 9 chapters before he went on hiatus again.
This arc's being set up to be a long one too. It's still in the set up period, kind of like the NGL Part of Chimaera Ant.
This could be longer then that, chapter wise and time wise.

It's a good thing they didn't get on the ships, we don't need two hiatus boats in this world.

Martinez is going to view him as the true number one contender.....
Its been 25 years since the manga first came out.

25 fucking years and what do we have to show for it?

No Miyata match
Mother still won't see Ippo fight
Kumi has served no purpose
No world title match despite introducing Rico years ago

What is the fucking point anymore?

How long is this going to fucking be?

Dude. Be glad you're getting chapters. Just look at all those Hunter x Hunter bet losers.

Man, whoa. That flood thing seems like it would be the most fun ever just walking around. Everything about that seems so nice and fuzzy.

Umaru has no concept of things like money.

Fuuka 29

As predictable as it was, still felt disappointing to see the public calming down.
Fuuka did the first intelligent decision anyone made since the start of this clusterfuck, she invited Tama onto stage.

I can't wait until Tama fucks things up by hugging Yuu or even re-declaring her love for him.

Fuuka 0

It was a nice little chapter, but it didn't add much that we didn't already knew, outside of the reasons why Tama left.

Seo needs to rename the book Tama-chan.

Claymore

Haha, Teresa is such an ass. She just says things and doesn't care.

Curious to see her ultimate attack though, mostly to see if it's just "slash really fast" like most Claymore attacks or something actually cool.

Hey guys...

Can we just take a moment to talk about the fact that Naruto is in its victory lap? I know many, myself included, have done nothing but criticise the manga for years, but It's still the first manga I followed on a weekly basis and I'm sure the case is the same for a lot of you. A story I've been following since 2004 is finally coming to an end.

Most of the discussion about it seems to be occuring in the Naruto OT. Still, I agree that it feels somewhat weird that it's ending. I personally expected Bleach to end first.

She shows up more often than Fuuka at this points and she leads to more "fun" scenarios, so I'd be cool with that.

Same here, especially since they actually announced the ending of Bleach.

I'm honestly half-expecting a part 3 at some point, especially since Kaguya mentioned needing an army. Probably if Kishi next work fails to take off.

Ugh. If I wanted to see shipping wars, I'd go to Tumblr.
But what could people discuss outside of shipping wars?

It's more probable that it'll pick up from the "last" movie. I can see Jump editors pressuring Kishimoto to do this. They have no other potential big sellers lined up.

tbh my reaction is thank fucking god. Even though i started following it a long long time ago it just got repetitive, mainly because of the world. Kishi didn't make it interesting. I hope its time for some other manga or author to shine

Woah, someone else reading Otoyo. It's a pretty charming manga.

I'm not quite sure what's up with Naruto. A huge manga like that should have gotten an ending announcement. Instead it just seems like its over with nothing else.

they still have that upcoming movie.

i would laugh so hard if that ushers a continuation of sorts (either older Naruto adventures or the adventures of whatever kids they might spit out)

LMAO that was her final attack.
She pulverized Priscilla with the Quick Sword

I wonder where the manga will take us next, or if it's already over. Does anyone know if Claymore is about to be finished?
