    Agreed, Mitama was the best 2019 series in WSJ. The comedy was actually pretty good and there were some nice "aww, how sweet" moments too. Shame.

    The Act Age incident makes my blood boil. I'm glad Jump took a proper stance THIS TIME and I wish the artist all the best.
    The writer is actually retarded for doing what he did and I'm glad the girls stood up for themselves.
    What a shitstorm.
    All I have is sympathy for the artist and her fans.

    Good that they did the right thing this time at least. Sucks for the artist, though. I wonder if she could've (or would've even wanted to) continued writing it herself. Though I guess the series has his stench on it now.

    You shouldn't use this kind of abelist language.

    I'm not sure about that part. It isn't really easy to take over right in the middle of serialization, especially we don't know Shiro's writing skill.

    Besides, now that the cat is out of the bag, the teenage protagonist of act age was harboring feelings of affection to her 30+ director, that she could not understand because her weird personality or lack of human emotion.

    There is also the fact that carrying on with the story also pushes the pervert forward, and maybe she couldn’t do it even if she wanted it because the legalese of the contract.

    Yeah, I really hated that it got into this route. Reminded me of how I disliked Ane Doki.

    Act-Age was becoming one of my favorite manga, and to see it all go to waste because of what the writer did is just really sad to see. Kei Yonagi was becoming one of my favorite characters, and I was even looking forward to an anime adaptation but unfortunately it won't happen anymore. Because of the writer's stupid actions he ruined his career, probably ruined the illustrator's career, ruined and tainted Act-Age and ruined the potential future of the series.

    I'm just wondering what Viz is going to do with the upcoming volume releases, will they still release them or will they just cancel it?

    Could you elaborate? I'm not seeing what zeltrax said that could be taken as enabling the writer's behavior.

    I think he meant my use of the word retarded.
    Taken out of context it could be abeist but in this case I'm pretty sure it's an informal use not meant to trigger anyone.
    Unless of course, in his mind he associate being a molestor and a near pedophile with the disadvantaged, but that's really not on me is it.

    Viz removed the pre-orders for volumes 2 and 3 of Act-Age on their website, however Amazon still has it up on their site.

    Sad to see Ghost Writer placing at the bottom. The art was good and the premise interesting, but with the way its story is running now its clearly been giving its marching orders to wrap up its plot and end in 8 chapters. They botched the main character from the getgo and didn't really get in that Bakuman creative energy it seemed to promise, so its not super shocking.
    To support Viz hosting all Jump manga for FREE and day of release, Arlong Park will now support the official release.

    Official chapter discussions now start Sundays at Noon, EST.
    Please do not post threads when scan sites release their version, and just discuss those releases in the spoiler thread.

    I'd remember the day when i was so pretty bored and decided to give a minimal chance to two series of wsj after so many dissapointments, and cheered after 20 chaps because one of them didn't dissapointed me, obviously it was Act-Age ;_;

    Fuck!

    Yonagi didn't have a father, that's pretty much the reason for that, dude.
    Nothing exists; even if something exists, nothing can be known about it. Even if something can be known about it,
    knowledge about it can't be communicated to others
    . Even if it can be communicated, it cannot be understood.

    Oh, so the manga actually sort of reflected that? I keep getting shit whenever I bring up that the manga/anime industry is always supporting a pedophilic-ish sexual drive and getting away with it (I mean, makes a lot of sense for Shueisha to cancel a manga written by a sexual abuser at the same issue they are making money out of readers horny over things like this), so it's interesting to see such a perfect book example.

    Anime industry is always trying to make their consumers get hard over teens/pre-teen girls (oh, but it doesn't count because she is actually a 400yo dragon who just looks like a 5yo kid :D), and those readers are fed that from their 11 to their... well, until they outgrow anime, really, which in some cases is never. Then someone who grew eating this shit night and day for decades turn out to be a pedophile and is all "let's make clear we don't support this crap".

    It's because Japan, with its conventional and traditional customs and social rules finds the High school life the brightest moments of their life.
    University and work life balance? Hahahahahaha.
    Those who missed out on a normal lifestyle during high school have their urges surpassed and their golden moment passed them by.
    That's where you get your Loli manag sales figure from the salarymen who grind to death at work and wishing they could go back in time and the neets who never grew past a certain mental age.
    This country has issues but hey, cute girls amiright

    While Im glad the series is done and I agree with most other posters in the subject this one here is the equivalent of someone blaming videogames for a school shooting, as a following post already quite well explained japanese culture over the subject, you also dont get to be racist and ignorant of other countries just because you lack understanding of their own context, and historically just like a texan blaming games in order to keep his guns its usually someone guilty of actual crimes in the subject matter that does the "agressive blame foreign culture and its media products for actual crimes and social issues" game even when its clearly not the case (as other poster explained already)

    If you are talking about zeltrax's post, you really need to calibrate your irony-meter.

    Also "you also dont get to be racist and ignorant of other countries just because you lack understanding of their own context". Newsflash: Japan is not just anime. Try not reducing a country, its culture and history just to a segment of entertainment industry (see, I can also play this disingenuous card).


    I should have kept the ironic bit at the end of my post about "But god forbid your bringing this up without summoning some 'this is like saying violent games urh durh'-level commenters". Scraped it out of trust for our users, failed to consider the urge to spit this commonplace argument could actually force a lurker to register.
