I haff no complaints. I feel kinda empty at the moment. I have no comments at all :'(

I loved the scene where Mashiro showed the questionnaire results to his uncle's grave. It was beautifully done.

My reaction to chapter 92:

Aawww

Recently Bakuman's been having a lot of chapter ending d'aww moments...

(;w;)

I hope they don't permanently keep Iwase in her 'crazy bitch' character though.

But... nut her Crazy Bitch moments are AWESOME! Really, reread the chapter with Oda Nobunaga's theme:

It stops being mere crankiness and makes the jump to Epic Supervillainy. Given how chock-full of What Do You Mean, It's Not Awesome? this manga is, I think this soundtrack fits the mood of this chapter perfectly.

Alternately, for the Mashiro/Azuki interaction

I think this song would be a perfect theme for them. "Promises are not necessary" indeed...

New chapter. Akina tried to do what I expected her to try from the second page on. Completely in character for her at this time. I LOVE how badly the plan fails evil grin

I love Niizuma more and more with each chapter. He's just freaking adorable.

And the close up on Akina's face when she saw Miho's name scared the CRAP out of me.

I'm curious though - is it true that if you voice act for a Shonen Jump manga's anime, you won't be allowed to do another one? Seems strange to me since I'm under the impression that anime tends to reuse a lot of the same seiyuu...

There is no hard and fast rule, but I'm guessing that if you voice act a major role for a potential Long Runner Shounen anime, you're not going to have much time for many more series. Especially another potential Long Runner Shounen anime.

Did anyone else notice just how tiny Miho apparently is? In imperial measurement, she comes out at about 4'11, 88 pounds.

^Maybe you didn't notice, but Miho is Japanese, and one that is supposed to be perfectly pretty as well. So she's bound to be about a head shorter then the average western male.

Though I do have a hard time imagining a grown woman to be that small, honestly.
People say I have a problem with authority. I say that authority has a problem with me.
But the Other Wiki says that the average female height among 19 year olds is 1.58 meters or 5' 2''.

Didn't bother to look up average weight, but 88 pounds is quite small...

Then I guess she is, in fact, kinda small, even for a Japanese. Intersting how 'stats' like these never actually seem to show in the main comic. I guessed she was perfectly average in height.
People say I have a problem with authority. I say that authority has a problem with me.
Japanese men (and East Asians in general) have a preference towards petite females. 40kg is probably slightly underweight even for Japanese standards, but girls over there try to keep their weight as low as possible, possibly within the 40 to 50kg range.

They need to take a lesson from Mika:

I hate to seem like I'm one upping you, but this is sooo much better.

The average height is just that - average. 5'2 is not all that much taller than 4'11. It's called variation. I think it's pretty normal.

Does this page make her a Magnificent Bastard? I know she fits the "Bastard" part. If not, I think that is what she is becoming/the author is trying to make her become.

On a side note: Is this the first time she and Niizuma have met? Can those two be more polar opposites of each other? Then again, Opposites Attract... Never mind.

Nah, too transparent for a Magnificent Bastard.

Wow, just looked at manga stream's translation... Awkward. And the white backgrounds under white borders give a horrible infinite space effect...
Sometimes the question is not, "Am I being misanthropic?" but rather, "Am I being misanthropic enough?"

Niizuma Eiji is UBER AWESOME

I am starting to suspect he's an Eiichiro Oda Expy. I mean, he's like a Real Life Luffy!
In honor of my 50lb pup
^If that is true then... THAT WOULD BE AWESOME!

^^ Yeah, I was thinking he was Kishi, until I realized that One Piece is much more popular in Japan. Then it seemed obvious.

Wait....

E(ii)chiro = N(ii)zuma...?

Oda = Eiji...?

Holy crap, I totally didn't think of that!
I try.

It's worth noting that although he hasn't made a personal appearance, Oda is in the manga. He was mentioned as being on the judging panel for amateur manga applicants, or something like that. It was one of the earlier chapters.
