The January issue of Shueisha's Jump SQ has announced that Isin Nisio (Monogatari Series) will draw a new series with Akira Akatsuki. To be titled Shounen Shoujo, it will debut in Jump SQ's February issue, to be released on January 4.

The duo had previously worked on Medaka Box, which was serialized in Weekly Shounen Jump. It finished in April 2013 and has 22 compiled volumes. The manga received two 12-episode TV anime adaptations by Gainax.

Mixed thoughts on this. I enjoyed Medaka Box (not the anime as much though) but the cover looks kinda...generic.

Extremely looking forward to it. Big fan of Medaka Box. The male lead design is very interesting, I like it.

The boy seems to have consumed some heavy drugs, and the girl is so moe it makes me sick. And it's called Shounen Shoujo(Boy Girl).....


Is this Gender Bender with alternate personality on the top of it?

Watching good retro anime is like you're following the main plot of the story while watching seasonal anime is like you're watching fillers of the story.

Medaka Box was so random, but that was what made it awesome. I hope this manga will have the same 'feeling' with it. It just has a weird title though.

But Nisio Isin is better than the edgy 2deep4u - that is not deep Asano Inio :D

Bloody Hell, this is the best news of this year. Finally, something new more akin to his (NisiOisiN) best work than to these countless fan-pandering stories.
Also, this kid looks like male Youka, talking about the best character.
...or like younger Kamome but without shadow on eyes, ditto the gender.

There is such thing as shit taste. Only idiots think that every "work of art" should have the same value.

Adapting the 3rd and 4th arcs of Medaka Box...DO IT GAINAX!

But in all seriousness, I'm pumped for this.

Medaka Box as a manga was decent I suppose, but the characters were just so great! I wonder whether he can make someone that is on pare with Kumagawa, definitely gonna read this!

Isin's writing is extremely hit or miss. He sometimes writes a brilliant Hitagi End and then drops shit like Tsukimonogatari on you.
Also if that pick of the Medaka Box kid isn't 2edgy4u then I don't know what is. That show's whole story is pretty darn dumb even for an action shonen.

Asano is a far better and consistent writer. Isin's writing style is often just otaku fodder unless you count 20 minute bath scenes with loli character or Kanbaru talking about how she wants the D and is not wearing a bra as good storytelling.

Where Isin goes for titilation, Asano tackles sexuality.

Yes, Isin can really make mistakes with his series, you can either have a Zaregoto/Katanagatari or you can have a Nisemonogatari/Tsukimonogatari. I didn't liked Medaka Box either, it was average, it was a shock after I saw Isin as one of the author.

As being consistent, I don't find Asano as that much. His stories can be interesting, but sometimes fall "trying to be smart", but yes, it can have several smart points, mind you I only read Nijigahara Holograph, Umibe no Onnanoko and Oyasumi Punpun. I think that Asano could be much better writing novels.

Will read, Medaka Box was awesome.

Nisio's work doesnt translate well in manga format. Light novels are a better fit for him.

Unless you read Japanese you are basically talking out of your ass. And im giving you the benefit of the doubt and hoping you arent comparing Nisio work solely on adaptions.

Akira Akatsuki's style is alright, fitted well enough when he did Medaka Box. I hope, Nisio will get busy enough to stop wrighting new Monogatari books so Shaft could move on at last.

It's really not. The only time that it strayed was in Nisemonogatari and he said publicly that he wrote that for fun or himself and wasn't intended for publishing. Aside from that I found his style and quality of writing to be very consistent, across multiple series. What was bad about Tsukimonogatari? you are comparing Koimonogatari an arc where all the build of previous arc (From as far as Nisemonogatari) comes into fruition, to an arc that was a mere build up for the mysteries and some of the prominent characters of Final season.

You don't even know the story and you are already calling it dumb? Lol. The title is illness boy and illness girl, clearly the boy appearance isn't edgy and has something to do with the plot. Similar to Kumagama's appearance when he was a kid and the contrast to it when he grew up (in the look of the female lead).

Heavily disagree. They both aim for different things. Niso isn't otaku fodder (new buzzword yay) In all of the works I read for him and especially Monogatari series, above all else, he does character studies. He takes the mundanes of teenager problems and insert them in a supernatural setting to emphasis them and analyze the characters like he did with Nadeko and Hanekewa. In terms of style it's always witty, funny with a bit of meta in Monogatari or very meta in Medaka Box or subversion of tropes in Katanagatari.

The story is never a big focus, even in Katangatari where the whole drive is supposed to be the journey for the swords but most of the time is spent focus on the protagonist (to the point where he literally skipped a hyped up fight). Medaka Box sacrifice the story after the Minus arc for the sake of being cheeky and meta. Where a whole arc is composed of the concept of the ''Shounen manga main character''.

Yes, there is a lot of idle chatter about things that don't really matter. But for me it has a charm to it. Sometimes it's funny, sometimes it's funny because it was too trivial, sometimes it's actually smart. In the end it's part of the experience for me.

Sexuality with Niso is used as something fun, playful and a bit of tease. It doesn't explore it seriously. Just a jab here and there about LN ecchi as a self awareness of sort, while at the same time sometimes indulging in it himself, a contradiction. While Asano uses sexuality as a key element to explore his characters, which just shows how different their style is.

Dismissing Niso as that term you stated is as the same as dismissing Asano as an edgy sex maniac. Personally speaking I prefer Niso. Asano's style is too dramatic for my taste sometimes and the emphasis on sexuality is something I don't really care for. His works is more for someone who is looking for melancholic often a bit depressing looks into life, it's meaning and nihilism. His character are means to tell the story, and outlook in life while I prefer the opposite found in Niso.

also both of them are overrated. deal with it.

nisio issin is definitive of pretentious. when you realize the meaning of longass dialogue can be discribed with very short and clear sentence. also his word play is not even that great.

asano inio is just urobutcher but with more reasonable character. all of the character given reason to be retard, everyone become retard, and everyone will always retard. just let them suffer asano.

Hahah the way the "shou" of shounen shoujo are written. That's not the character 少 (little) as used for boys/ girls, but 症, which means "illness". NisiOisiN really loves that kind of play. This already tells us the kind of story it will be x).

Interesting, one thing I like with NisiOisiN is some of characters he creates. Some of them are really nice. Let's hope he manages to create some very good ones with that new manga.
