    i'm pretty sure they mean votes in the jump start initiative, not generally within WSJ

    How is it unfair? The only thing Obata might be better than others is drawing skills since he isn't an author but an illustrator. Just because he's drawing a manga doesn't make said manga good, it depends on the author who is writing the manga.

    You are seriously underestimating the power of both art and fame.

    western comics readers tend to be pretty... uh... fannish? Like militantly so. If there's a name they recognise from a beloved work they've experienced then they're all over that shit, blind as can be.

    Not to say anything about this new comic itself, just a pretty blatant observation on how it'll go down with Int'l Jump

    Besides, it's against a ping pong manga (while it's kind of funny, that alone can't carry the series) and moe bait (that migth get popular, but I doubt that western audiences would enjoy it openly)

    W're talking about ESJ here. Readers get to vote on which Jump Start series they want to stay. Do you have any idea how a lot of people react to Obata? Some people are already saying it's going to be a good series just because of Obata. Many will vote for it to stay in ESJ because of Obata, even if it doesn't do well in Japan.

    And Viz had a huge promotion of Obata's works leading up to NYCC where they had a special panel just for him.

    Nope. It doesn't really need modding. I skim it pretty regularly though.

    E-Robot was what I expected, which isn't good. I don't see that one surviving. At least not in WSJ.
    Ageha is slightly above average. I'll wait to see a match against one of the 13 before making a definitive judgment.
    Obata's mystery manga is coming next. Since it's the one that will most likely stays in the ESJ, I hope the writer makes an interesting story worth the hype the mangaka will get thanks to his partner's fame.
    I hope that like last time, we will get a surprise 4th title. Maybe a title from Jump+ or maybe they could use this campaign to test MHA.

    I almost feel bad for E-Robot; it has no chance in ESJ with series like Ageha and Obata's new work. It might have a chance in Japan, and I'm sure a scanlation group will pick this up.

    If they aren't going to keep the girl from the ping pong manga be a total bitch, then I'm not that interested, the humor curve went waaaay down this week.

    Hi Fi cluster predictable plottwist was predictable.

    Getting to the right mindset to read E-Robot.

    Given the mixed reception so far in the comments at ESJ, I feel like E-Robot's concept makes it practically dead in the water on our side in just about any round. Don't even have to take into account Obata's name value here, although that just makes the difference even more stark.

    It saddens me so much not being able to get past chapter 2 of Academia. I WANT to like it! I really do! But it puts me off in every single way conceivable.

    A real shame.

    Based on looking at Shoseki Ranking, it looks like the volume 1 of Boku no Hera Academia is having similar phenomenon as the volume 1 of Ansatsu Kyoushitsu.
