There are few shounen titles that don't have some comedy in them, so that's not the issue.

The issue is whether they need to do gags (more episodic, think onidere) or a darker series - it's really hard to combine both in one series. The only way I can see it is if the start with gag, then turn serious, like what's been done with Kekkaishi and Reborn. Is there any other way to combine dark and gag (not the same as comedy)?

Hum... I think there can be dark and comedy mixed. Like in Kuroshitsuji [forgetting about the "shounen-ai" thing.]

They should go for one genre or similar genre to Trap.. but to change it to the opposite will just make them Mr. Random

I liked how the mangaka subtly spoke of his excellence when he had them say the best mangakas make ordinary daily life interesting.

I also do like Myoshi's physical dominance over Saiko. I know she's supposed to be a judo champion, but I have seen no evidence that she still actively trains. She always seems to be with Ashirogi Muto.

Seriously, what's up with Miura? It's impossible to even think of Ashirogi Muto doing comedy. They should go for the dark manga! Eiji always gives the best suggestions. It's like he always guides them which path to choose.
