    The first chapter was really great, vibrant and refined. For sure this will be a hit. Love how the concept was developed throughout the chapter.

    Great to have Ohkubo back, in the weekly magazine hope to get a lot of wonderful spreads.

    ahhh I must have missed the detail that this was weekly. Certainly looking forward to adding this to my list of 'must reads' per week. No doubt, it is far more polished than Soul Eater in terms of presentation. Ohkubo definintely went a long way,

    dat fuckin' spread of the characters. Classic Soul Eater vibe, I'm digging this already.

    This concept is really unique. I hope it takes off. So far I'm impressed. I like the smarmy smile flaw. The ability users and having a Sister as part of the team. Also that their leader just works out everywhere lol.

    Wait, so GanGan lost yet another of their biggest mangaka to another publisher?
    Ouch, haven't read that magazine in a while but I imagine it's a hollow shell now.

    It has Barakamon and Handa-kun, right now.

    Certainly a nice title, but as a franchise less than half of Soul Eater (not to mention the massive giant FMA)
    Then again, GanGan was never that huge a magazine, so one could say their glory days are over and they just reverted back to their normal state.


    I'm not subscribed to Shounen Magazine right now, because after Again! ended and Yamada-kun became boring, I realized I just didn't give enough of a fuck to keep it. Okubo coming to Magazine might make me want to read again.
    (I keep sub of Bessatsu because I feel its' the best read out of Magazine line up right now. YM is pretty good too, but there's just too few manga I'm interested in it.)

    Gangan has Kishimoto too (not the one you're thinking of, the other one)

    anyway, I liked chapter zero so I'll follow this manga

    i hope the fireball creatures from the color pages become regular characters in this manga

    I doubt it. They are at same level as Soul Eater; heck, Handa-kun is already popular even without an anime. So, those two are definitely pretty big series. But, it is true that they are nowhere near FMA (it will be very, very, very, very, and very hard to find series with same popularity as FMA; especially for lesser known magazine).

    Yeah, but it isn't popular. Having Kishimito's brother is very different from having Kishimoto, himself.

    I wish that was true, but Barakamon is still only at 4 mill for all 12 volumes, and Handakun is at 230k (+ whatever the third vol sold)

    Nowhere close to 13 million at 25v Soul Eater achieved, at least not yet.
    I've no doubt the title can achieve that level of success in the future (given if it last as long), but it hasn't reached there yet.

    Believe it or not, Soul Eater was one of the top 5 biggest franchise GanGan has ever had.

    Handa-kun sold 1.3 million within 4 volumes. Plus, the biggest thing is that two series (original + spin-off) are selling really high. I know that Soul Eater is one of top 5 best selling Gangan series, but its spin-off wasn't very popular (even animation was awful). As compared to that, there isn't much example for series that have success in both original and spin-off. Thus, it has possibility to make big franchise as well; heck Handa-kun's popularity may also going to increase because of anime.
