    It’s weird. Like it’s probably the least I’ve enjoyed Jump’s lineup, but like the stuff that’s good is REALLY GOOD. There’s just a lot of middling or bad comics too right now, for me at least. I’m...

    Personally I’d love a return to the ‘nonsense’ era of Bobobo, or even Mr. Fullswing when it was being funny, but I don’t think it’d sell anymore.
