What's up with the JoJo Part 4 hardcover volumes having a different design motif from the previous 3 parts?
Versus the previous which looked like this

Parts 1-3 were released in the Jojonium format which were re release editions in Japan, which Viz brought over. Parts four and onward don't have those...or at least DiU didn't the last time I checked.
Bring us new lifeSeeing how I don't think there's a Light Novel Era that I can think, this seems like the next best place. The Faraway Paladin manga has me enthralled and I basically NEED more. I see reviews on Amazon of people saying it's great. Can anyone else vouch for the novels?
It's really good. And there's an anime? Awesome.oh wow. Just discovered 'The Hero is Overpowered but Overly Cautious' and uh
this might be one of the best isekais lmao. Konosuba has competition for hilarious isekai. And since it already has an anime announced, I hope it's good. The writing alone will carry it.
When the hero goes into a store and says "I'll buy a 1000" then when they don't have that many says "then order them" with a complete serious face I fucking lose it. Is this me playing EVERY rpg?
Hmm...not much here really interests me, though I suppose i'll pick up the Bakemonogatari manga adaption
Baki covers tend to be pretty ugly.Just received that Baki storage box. It's... pretty ugly lol:
It's nice having something to put the books in though.
Last week I also received the Japanese edition of Radiant (for reading practice) and the fifth volume of Jigokuraku which are visible in the top picture. The paper in the Japanese version of Radiant is much thicker than in the original version, which is nice. There's also an exclusive interview in Volumes 1&2.
Always impressive that it took 3 anime seasons and a movie for heroaca to get to 600k sales yet Neverland did on merit of storytelling and art alone.Shonen Jump Issue #16 TOC

Also, here's the sales of the volumes of the series that debuted this week (along with the ones on shonen jump+) in the thread:
And charts that this guy makes for sales overall, with numbers for this week already
To be fair, Neverland also got a pretty big boost after the anime for older and newer volumes but you're right that even before it was already putting more than 400k
MHA sells around 600k after 4 weeks, TPN volume 12 numbers is after 9 weeks, it only did about 450k after 4 weeks. Maybe this volume can reach 600k after 4 weeks but it is hard to tell
The current value of some magic cards makes me sad considering what I sold all mine for back in 2004.
I can't personally vouch for it, but the Japanese seem to review the original web-novel highly: https://ncode.syosetu.com/n5115cq/Seeing how I don't think there's a Light Novel Era that I can think, this seems like the next best place.

I have no idea if it's just me but the Viz app is just bad. Besides the no bookmarks thing, it always seems to be sluggish to load (like I can't change pages smoothly) though maybe that's just my device or something. In comparison, the Shuiesha app (manga plus), which does mainly vertical scrolling, loads much more smoothly. As I mentioned before, it's great that they're simulpublishing a bunch of these, but there's no way I'm reading them with the huge gaps, and if they're only going to fill these gaps as the collections get released, I might as well wait a few months to a year to re-subscribe. I mean there are 40 missed chapters in Act Age and like 34 missed chapters in Jujustsu Kaisen.Previously someone here was talking about these new official manga apps. I think they’re a good start — they’re covering the most popular stuff and making the last few chapters free is a good way to get scanlation readers to transition... IF they can keep up with scanlations. The Shounen Jump app is still kinda sluggish but Shueisha’s Manga Plus app seems fine to me. It remains to be seen though if they can ever expand to wider varieties of manga. I think a big reason scanlations, and scanlation apps for that matter, persist is because of the sheer volume of manga that official translators will never get to.
