    I know those lists are just pasta but it is bugging me every time: It's not "Yakeno Harajin" it's "Yakenohara Jin"

    You do not remove such a thing from your magazine. Ever.
    This is a better comparison for Kochikame than the Simpsons.

    Simpsons would imply initial satire of contempary society trends and consumption culture with gradual decline through increased V.I.P. cameos. This has never happened in Japan afaik, though - or has it? If so: Please enlighten me, [User familiar with Japanese culture]!

    I definitely understand why that would make you feel down, but I think it is even just important that you would be an international voice period, not just your specific country. I think every company would love to, and definitely wants to, have global distribution rights to series outside of Japan, Asia, or as few other territories as possible. The smaller your territory is, the more likely you would actually be included in this. It is the countries that already have sizeable manga markets that will be the ones skipped over. There hasn't really been much of this in digital manga right now though, but that is the way sites like Crunchyroll operate, and Viz has already shown interest in expanding outside of just the territories they also have a print business in currently, and if any manga would be able to do it, I would guess Shonen Jump series have the best chance.

    And man do I want to see chapter 3 of Hachi. Hopefully Jump's online reader will upload it as the last preview......

    except Watterson removed Calvin & Hobbes himself, and peanuts hasn't been new for close to a decade now, they're just doing re-runs.

    more like, no one wants to be the guy who tells whoever's doing Blondie nowadays to knock it off.

    That's exactly an description of Kochikame sans the VIP part.
    Content wise, it IS pretty much Japanese Simpsons. The satirical approach is much tamer than it used to be as well, and occasionally, like Simpons does, runs with a completely character-driven story instead of social satire.

    A good one shot too, the art is kinda old-school for a 15 years old though.

    So it used to be pretty critical in a subtle way. I admit I'd love to read Kochikame, but it seems there is no way that Western scnlator, let alone publishers, will ever find interest in it. Would a translation for this series be rather hard or is the level of Japanese required to understand it not *that* high?

    Title is Oni Hime. The artist's pen-name is Saba no Neko.
    Saw his stuff on pixiv as well, impressive for a 15 yr old.

    Personally I didn't find the language all that difficult in Kochikame, but the challenge my lie within cultural references and just general japanese puns/jokes.

    I am so in love with those colour pages that it boggles the mind. And the inkwork. And... Oh god, it's just stupidly exceptional, isn't it. Totally my bag, and I hope we get to see some more of their work soon.

    I couldn't read most of the story (though the images tell it clearly enough), but that was indeed impressive. I love the look of the heroine--she reminds me of Samidare from Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer--and just the art in general. Hopefully someone scans this so I can really read it...

    Huh, I figured Haikyuu would be up another spot or two since that chapter should be the first full one introducing the second named female in the entire series.

    Still, Toriko's the surprise this week.
