    He was just tweeting and sounding just fine a day ago from Comiket.
    No signs of depression, at least visibly from internet social view. Yeah, it's baffling.

    BTW, this isn't related to Jump, but one of the manga artist serializing in Weekly Shounen Champion was just found dead.... suicide.
    Jun Sadogawa, author of Muteki Kanban Musume and currently running Amane Atatameru, was found hanging himself in a nearby park.

    For a WSChampion artist he was pretty decently successful, with an anime series based on his work and all. Yeesh...
    The ramen fighter, they made the character in the anime like taken from another anime's character folder.
    Is it because work stress?

    No one gives a shit that Togashi isn't weekly. No one.

    Everyone cares that he doesn't keep his quality consistent and has no schedule *at all*.

    If he was a monthly mag? Fine. If he did 10 chapters a year from January to March and then took a break for the rest of the year, but was consistent about that pace and we could count on those 10 chapters at that time? Fine. If he only came out with volumes once a year? Fine. No one cares that monthly comics are monthly, or that it takes novelists a year or two to write their works, and Muira is given leeway on Berserk's schedule because the art shows that he's still working on it nonstop when chapters DO come out.

    Its that Togashi comes out whenever, with unexplained breaks of varying lengths, (anywhere from 8 months to two years) with art that resembles crudely drawn scribbles with zero professionalism whatsoever, with no hint or indication how long the series might ultimately last? (Not to mention those hiatuses dragged out a 2 year arc into a SEVEN year arc.)

    His pace isn't the problem. His lack of professionalism, is.

    I don't know why folks still bother to defend Togashi.

    1969 and 1970 are the years with most series started in WSJ history, when the magazine was still looking for identity or for a hit, sadly many of those were never compiled into volumes.

    A Twillight Zone manga adaptation and A short story about Che Guevara. Huh.

    Going to late 1969 I found another site that I'm mimicking: http://mangadate.blog.fc2.com/blog-category-1.html I'll check it out later.

    My main source are still wikipedia, the spanish clasic manga author site, Starman's site and google image search through Mandrake and Amazon.

    Most of those were stablished authors. I haven't even being investigating the One Shots, but the variety in a quick google translated view is shocking.

    I'm guessing that it would be a licencing nightmare, as more than half of the 16 series that I've checked weren't published in volume format by shueshia.

    Actualy makes me wonder about Kujira Daigo and Comic Mate. Cause from the image I've seen of it in an auction, the name Shueisha doesn't seem to appear anywhere on the volume covers.

    4 days of planning (neru?), 6 days of rough layout, 16 days of inking, then ~5 days of rest.
    Workday was something like...
    Sleep from 4 am to 9 am, eat for 1 hour, work a bunch of hours, eat again for 1 hour, work some more, brief snack time (recently Watsuki's taken a liking to beef jerky), then work again until sleeping at 4.

    Also, I think that it's pretty neat that after drawing the layout on a smaller piece of paper, then photocopying larger copies to trace on, he uses a... calligraphy brush? to trace.
    what is Watsuki working on these days....?
    RK was the first manga i read,back in 2005...it is still special to me...his assistants list were illustrious considering what they achieved later....

    He was working on Embalming. Then that was put on hiatus so he could work on Rurouni Kenshin Restoration to promote the live action movie. That finished earlier this year, so he should be working on Embalming again.
    On the other hand, there will be two more live action movies to cover the Kyoto arc, so maybe he'll eventually make more promo manga for those.

    so the live-action movie made enough money to warrant a trilogy..that's good news

    Speaking of the WJ Table of Contents, I don't suppose there's an online repository of them somewhere? Like, say, going back 20 or 30 years?

    There are some that I'd like to dig up, but I don't really have access to the magazine.

    On a similar note, did Monthly Jump have author comments each issue? I've never actually handled a physical copy, since it was discontinued before I moved to Japan.

    1969 and 1970 have been both frustrating and arduous for my research, as these years the magazine hasn't been consolidated in the form that we know and love today, (hell, even in 69' the "W" of "WSJ" is not yet in action, as the magazine is not weekly) most series are short works of veterans and known authors, they come in, work for 3-5 issues, and then go out, sometimes working on another series.

    The shortness and irregularity of publishing pushes these series out of regular volume compilations, I'm guessing that if they DO exist, are in books of a bunch of the author's work (Like Oda's wanted) or inside the regular volumes of other series of that author (As Sorachi's weird super strong bancho story in Gintama).

    Well, I've already checked for 12 of 19 of the series of 69. And of those, I couldn't find anything solid for 6 of them. A couple descriptions here and there, and maybe a cover of The Twillight Zone, but I'm not sure.

    None of that year's series made it to 71'.

    The 70's are going to take me a long time to check, as it is the year with the most started series in the Magazine's history, with 33, as it keept the short series idea (even if it did had a handful of long series) plus the first year that it was trully Weekly.

    I'm probably going to leave kochikame for last, maybe doing 10 years sprints to ease the search.

    Just read the first chapter of Himedol and I liked it a lot. I hope is a huge success and not just a temporary series!


    Good for Tosh that Soma is being a huge success, bad for him that he have to work a lot. Let's see the Color pages/cover :)
