    Nah. Then it would've turned into Pajama na Kanojo 2: Electric Boogaloo.

    What's got Bleach so high?

    I think that it's the start of the flashback, so we got some Isshin, younger Hitsugaya, and Matsumoto's glistening breasts.

    I get the impression that Hunter X Hunter will be around as long as jump sales keep flagging, then boom it's back and so are sales! Lol. Weekly Shounen Jump, sponsored by Dragon Quest!

    Jump and DQ aren't complete strangers to each other, one of most successful manga series that ran in Jump during the 90s was Dragon Quest Dai's Adventure.

    Jump and DQ already had a baby.

    @Aohigi: DQ: Dai no Daiboken is one of my favourite battle shounen of all time! I started reading it when Bouken oh Beet manga went on hiatus, now there's a REAL hiatus. The information is even harder to find than Togashiism.

    lynxian translated the first chapter of Soul Catchers (you can find the raw at mangahead).
    Interesting and original. Maybe too original for WSJ.
    I think it will either be a hit or fail after 2 or 3 volumes.

    As for Mutou Black, I just saw the raw and it looks interesting (especially the way the battle is drawn).
    I'll wait for a translation to confirm my first impression.

    Question: I was doing a little research (i.e. browsing Wikipedia) about Jump Square, Shueisha's monthly counterpart to WSJ. Supposedly, SQ, despite still being a "Shonen" magazine, is aimed at a slightly older audience, say 16-21 (while WSJ is 10 and up). Is that about right, or do the two still have basically the same target audience and Wikipedia is messing with me?

    Yeah, that sounds about right. "Shonen" is a somewhat broader age range than we normally associate, from ages 8-17. The action/camaraderie aspect still carries over even to the older material. "seinen" doesn't just mean "gore and boobs" (but it certainly can) but generally has a different style of content to it entirely.

    Jump in particular just courts the slightly younger crowd, and that was mostly due to Dragonball's success cementing it as such.

    Some titles that publish in the older magazines, like Claymore for instance, when brought stateside just get printed under the shonen jump label, there's so little need to differentiate any sort of brand. (Claymore obviously has naked women occasionally and lots of dismemberment, but its not particularly graphic about it.)

    Of course, then there's stuff like Bastard! which... I think Jump started printing in the U.S. without actually *looking* at the later volumes. Cause it just sort of stopped right before the art got good. That may have been due to sales, but I think it more likely was due to it getting super pornographic at around volume 15.

    See, now this is fascinating to me.

    Up until now, I always thought that "Shonen" magazines always targeted the same age demographic (about 10-18). But to think that there are different Shonen magazines that could target (albeit slightly) different age demographics. It's somewhat of a game-changer for me.

    Makes sense though. Don't know why I didn't consider it before.

    8 years old? Are you sure?
    I know the anime for most WSJ series still fits that demographic but they also tend to be a bit toned down here and there. The magazines tend to be divided in demographic by the way they are written, like the more "mature" it is more kanji it has. Not mature in an adult sense but in a a Pokemon or Doraemon book will have half a dozen of simple kanji while a SJ series will have at least a couple of douzen. And I guessed that "SJ reading level" to be at least past primary school, like 5th/6th.

    Basically I'm asking, can a second grader really read Shounen Jump?

    You can also look at it this way, the magazine is monthly because it targets older teens that now spend more money in hanging out, dates and the likes so they are more likely to buy a magazine that only comes once a month than to buy a weekly magazine.

    Yes because of the magic of furigana.

    Edit: Or rather when they've learned hirigana and katakana dunno when that happens in the japanese school system, but basically the barrier to reading for a native speaker of japanese is way lower than to a learner of the language.

    Most jump series have the simple characters in there along with the more complex ones. Plus, there's always having older siblings read to you.

    They're certainly watching the anime versions of titles by then.

    Recent examples of WSJ series that do well with the young end of this 8-17 spectrum incl. Inumaru Dashi and Toriko, off the top of my head, with Toriko being huge with the kiddywinks thanks to the anime, so... yeah, 8yrs old seems reasonable.

    So does WSJ, or any other manga magazines, have some sort of rating system as to the appropriateness and content of the material? I know they do it with the Viz and other English licensers releases.
