    The new science fiction battle shonen in Jump by Daisuke Ashihara. With a 54 page first chapter.


    It also will be added to Shonen Jump Alpha as well


    But yeah, sounds really awesome and Jump needs a good new battle manga in the magazine.[/media][/CENTER]

    Cover makes it look crappy, story doesn't sound all that great.

    The picture for the synopsis looks good though. If the artist can draw good mecha/technology I would be behind the series (though from the cover that's probably not what they mean).

    Humanity FUCK YEAH!

    And same, that's probably why I'm really hyping this up and hoping it will turn out good because Jump really needs a new good series like this.

    Its a very broad story, the story of an alien invasion in which people fight back with the weapons of the alien's can be done a hundred ways.



    Also that series, according to that site, is a seinen, while this one is a shounen. I would imagine Gate would take a much more serious, and realistic, envisioning of an alien attack. WT on the other hand should be light, comical, and filled with typical elements of the genre such as straight forward 1 on 1 fights, arcs, and so on.

    Been digging around Japanese sites to find a raw or at least information on the One-Shot of this (called Trigger Keeper) as literally no English sites have info on it.

    And apparently this was a 2 part/chapter one shot and that the second chapter was actually serialized a few months after the first chapter and was seen as a "sequel". Most reviews of the 2 chapter one-shot seem to be pretty as well (only one of the reviews of the one-shots have said it was mediocre). But yeah, hopefully this ends up as a good series. Still looking for RAWS though.

    Looking at the first chapter WT is much more serious than Gate.

    Is it a coincidence that the enemies are named Naver? I wonder how the Koreans would react to that. :lmao

    Was kind of meh. The MC seems entertaining enough. Already found out that he's an ''enemy'' that fights for the good guys it's seems.

    And the Naver don't seem like a threat at all, for now.

    Humanity vs alien invasion is one of my favorite themes, but having read MLA and Knight Run similar stuff has to be of utmost quality to impress me.

    So far the first chapter has been okay-ish. 6/10. I hope Naver won't have human look-a-likes among them.

    That's what I'm comparing it to, as well. I'm doubtful it'll have the amount of despair since it's a SJ manga, but we'll see what the author can pull off.

    If only the Naver design was a bit more threatening. The BETA looked like something you would wet yourself in front of, but the Naver this chapter was just a white blob with a mouth.

    I enjoyed the first chapter. I mean it wasn't mind blowing or anything but it definitely wasn't bad. Leagues above such shitty new series like Takamagahara and Hungry Joker. I'll keep reading for now.

    meh, wish the art was better.

    This was an extremely basic first chapter (located at a school, new kid, bullies, surprise about the new kid, ect).

    Not exactly attention grabbing.

    I don't want to sound like an asshole but the Description of the story sounds something pretty simillar to Shingeki no Kyojin, and trust me I bet this won't be one tenth as good.

    SnK wasn't the first to do this. And nobody's expecting it to be, really.

    SnK.....best artwork...? What....?


    This concept isn't even all that similar to SnK. If they were at least living in fear of the other dimensional aliens then maybe but we were told in the first few pages that the people in the city have grown accustomed to the attacks. That's not living in fear and they do not seem to be on a hopeless side.

    The idea of other beings attacking humanity was not invented by SnK and just about every other series does it.

    I... Did that guy just say that SnK was original... Or that it had good art...? Now I'm a fan of SnK but it's definitely not original, nor does it have good art.

    My exact thoughts.

    At least here the author established the setting right away. It wil all depend on how the author proceeds from here.
