Shingeki no Kyojin doesn't have bad art NOW. It's art is very good just a different style than most of the manga out there

Wow Ao Haru Ride at #1!! Awesome!! XD

Great to see Chrome Shelled Regios in #3 for the light novels as well!!

Aug 24, 2012 1:32 AM by blue-y

Glad to see Shingeki no Kyojin outsell Bleach. They are like manga.

Great story and bad art (by general standards) of Shingeki no Kyojin versus bad story and great art of Bleach

For once plot > art


Plz tell me you were joking,bleach has good art?bleach art is shit and People overrate the fuck out of Kubo’s drawings.
Hearing bullshit like “Kubo has the best art in
WSJ” makes me laugh. Spewing black ink all over
a page like a god damn octopus does not count
as good art. Characters suffering from the only six faces trope does not help to cement it as “OMG TEH BEST EVAR!” either. Gigantic empty panels
with almost nothing happening in them and
mostly character reaction shots to events
highlights poor composition choice. It is highway
robbery that he draws so little in comparison to
the other mangaka he is serialized with yet still has people humping his average drawings
claiming his art is the best. Yeah, sorry but this
does not qualify as “amazing art” at all. It is just a
style that people have this ridiculous hard on for.
That is pretty much Bleach in a nut shell. All style
and no substance.

Agreed!

Sep 2, 2011 12:10 AM by Shih

Sep 1, 2011 9:10 PM by Shiseina

Hmm. Didn't expect much of that to be on there. Good for Gantz.

I'm really happy that Fairy Tail's doing well. ^_^

I've never even heard of Ao Haru Ride. Either that just snuck up on there, or I am completely oblivious to everything.

Don't worry, Bleach sells will rise again now that the childrens have what they want: Shinigamis.

And I'm glad for Shingeki no Kyoujin's sells.
