Thread: The "Shueisha" Thread

    They did cancel Seikimatsu Leader-den Takeshi! when the author was arrested for paying underage girls to have sex. And that series was bigger than Act-Age is now and it happened almost 20 years ago, when the world was a different place. The charges this time are arguably even worse, so I think Act-Age is done for.

    Watsuki is a big shot and Kenshin is a massive franchise. Cancelling that would be a way bigger deal. Plus that whole thing ended with just a fine, so at least in the eyes of Japanese law, it's a lesser crime.

    I feel more sad for the artist that will be hurt by this because the author just could not keep his hands for himself.

    Well, that sucks, there are people saying that the artist of Act-Age could continue the series alone or look for another writer, but the series itself is already tainted. Hoping that this doesn´t put an end to her career, it isn´t her fault that the co-author was a sick bastard.

    I just heard about the about the Act-Age news... this will inevitably cause it to be cancelled. Sucks to hear, but the guy has to pay for his disgusting behavior.



    Though I hope the co-author will be able to get on her feet somehow.
    Here’s how Naruto should end: Last panel is Naruto standing proudly over Konohagakure. Slowly zoom out to reveal Luffy staring into a snowglobe with a miniature Konoha inside it. Usopp asks him what he’s doing. Luffy replies “Thinkin’ bout ninjas! Ninjas are cool!” and then chucks it off the ship

    If Act-Age follows Takeshi's route, then it'll resume on different magazine after hiatus to just complete it.

    I for the life of me don't get the Demon Slayer hype. Yeah the anime looked good, but the manga is still a mediocore shonen though. Attack on Titan didn't even sell that gang busters.

    Wow... That is just so sad. It was one of the freshest series I had read in years. I liked it so much and it was well on its way to the climax arc. Really sad to see it go down like this. I hope the artist can continue her career, she has a promising future ahead of her. She must be the one hardest hit by this, she was working with that sick pedo after all...

    My understanding is that he was going around gropping at least two confirmed cases of underaged girls (over 15), so yeah Shueisha finally responded as it should have.

    Still Watsuki sitting on top of a dragon hoard of underaged porn of actual children and seeing Kenshin still around is still revolting.

    And I’m still angry/conflicted on shimabukuro, as the two things that I was basing my “ok” on, have lost all virtue with Watsuki, jail time, and Oda’s vote of confidence.

    Damn, it sucks for the artist who from one day to another lost her work without any wrongdoing.

    Hope she finds another project soon.

    Shimabukuro was during older times, if the case had happened during Toriko's run he would probably get fired to even with Oda's voto of confidence.
    Watsuki is too much of a money whale (72M volumes sold) for Shueisha to drop him, that why Togashi (128M volumes sold) can work whenever he wants.
    I guess that the same way that happens with the music industry the larger split of volume sales goes to Shueisha.

    And yeah, the accusation, and confession is of him molesting or exposing himself in two instances to high school girls.

    Wasn't actually middle school girls?


    And Shimabakuro did get fired at the time and his series was cancelled. He just came back later once his sentence was over.

    High School/ Middle school, makes little diference. A non consenting minor is a minor by the law be it 16 or 6.

    Yeah he bounced back after sentence, but in the current state of affairs I don’t think this one will bounce back.

    Yeah, and the crime is probably worse this time. Like, what Matsuki was doing is pretty much straight up sexual assault.

    I'm not sure. Matsuki can able to come back again like Shimabu (but it going to take several years for Matsuki to return). The major restriction will be either Shiro is okay to work with him or not.

    I didn't realise Mitama Security was ending!? That's really lame, I was enjoying that a lot. Do we know why it ended?

    That's a shame. I know its usually harder for gag series to succeed but I thought it was better than anything else Shonen Jump introduced in 2019. Well I look forward to whatever the author does next.
