    Sticky: Re: The "Shueisha" Thread

    The author of Red Hood already got the notice of cancellation for sure. I have yet to witness a badly received series end before 14 chapters. Red Sprite was awful and it ran until chapter 14.

    Re: Spy X Family

    Possibly not as bad as getting cut in the hand. Characters in fiction shrug them off all the time but getting a big cut in your hand is extremely painful because of all the nerve endings.

    Re: Red Hood

    I don't think it failed because readers are tired of the classic tropes. Demon Slayer is the perfect example of a shounen series that used the standard tropes and it has been a tremendous success....

    Never felt like it was ever going to be in danger. The first chapter grabbed your attention and interest right away which is the complete opposite of something like Red Hood.

    Re: Jujutsu Kaisen

    Well it is pretty much a love letter to Hunter x Hunter with the abilities and art style. If we can't get the original then this makes a fine replacement.

    Re: Cowboy Bebop

    Pilot Candidate... What a throwback. I remember watching it because Yu Yu Hakusho was airing on the same Adult Swim block. Terrible show which i think finished on a cliffhanger.

    I am fine with this. I made peace with the possibility that it might never get a proper ending years ago.

    You can feel how personal this story is. There are plenty of parallels to real life events which makes this a good reread.

    Re: My Hero Academia II - It Burns

    Yet One Piece has had 7 popularity polls in 24 years. Other series don't get a yearly popularity poll for seven straight years. I really doubt it's a coincidence.
