Kurogane
 
First a one-shot and now a weekly shonen !
I take baka-updates summary :

Quote:

Kurogane Hiroto is in high school, where he is academically the top of his class but literally the worst in physical activity. Born with a weak body, he has no endurance, speed nor strength and Hiroto wants nothing more than to be a hero. Fate teases him by giving him phenomenal eye sight, which allows him to see well beyond anyone else in sports, but his body is not able to react to any of it.

He learns from his friend Shiratori, who wants to recruit him for the Kendo team, about a rumor about a ghost named Tojo Sayuri, who wields a katana and haunts an ally in the city. Half curious, Hiroto goes there only to find that the ghost is real and that Tojo Sayuri has been looking for a successor to her Sakura sword style for 150 years. Sayuri chooses him as the successor after being able to dodge her attack and forces him to learn the Sakura style. Even with the help of the ancient swordsman ghost, Hiroto has to overcome his poor motor skills in order to be the hero he always wanted to be.
First chapter is out from like two weeks now and from what i read, it's good.
Yes, it's good. Not excellent but good. ^^

I cannot miss a series with Cloud Strife in it :p
I have never seen a manga serialized so fast after the one-shot in WSJ.
There is a slight change from the one-shot that matters in my opinion. In the one-shot she takes control of the body and in the first chapter she was more advising him. With the former I guess it would have been too close to Hikaru no Go, since we would have gotten two types of confrontations the ones between the ghost and the elite people and the ones between Kurogane and young kendo practitioners.
Since there is a mask in kendo, it is still possible to do so.

Sport manga is not my favorite genre, but I follow some of them and a series about kendo could be added to the list. The series is well executed so far, but I am waiting for a more complete cast to see if the series will be interesting.
And I think it could survive if it is not too focused on the main hero.

I like it so far. Kendo version of Hikaru no go, and we have the possible love interest for super eyes as well.

ShiroiRyu 2011-09-25 13:08

And the second chapter was really good.

ROFLMAO I thought the same.

I liked chapter 2. I'd be very interested to see what direction this series will take as time goes by.

Chandalen 2011-09-25 18:57

I really liked the one shot quite a bit. I hope this goes well in syndication.

Magin 2011-09-25 21:44

After reading the two chapters that are out... I'm probably going to follow this. Looks quite interesting, and I could use some good ole swordfighting (I probably should get back into Sengoku Armors too...)

My only concern: which series is going to be cut for this one to be regularly in? I hope Magico isn't...

I thought they cut Sengoku Armors for this one O__O.

Chandalen 2011-09-25 22:20

Well I read the first two chapters. He's setup pretty much everything for at least the short/midterm (aka a rival, possible triangle, etc), so it's time to see how it plays out.

That's... quite possible. I admit, I don't know every single series running in JUMP, but I had started on Sengoku Armors... and it wasn't all that appealing. Maybe Magico will survive after all...

either way, a week (or less) until chapter 3, and I look forward to it

Johnny 2011-09-26 00:37

Well I think the author knows what he's doing or at least trying because chapter 4...
Spoiler:

Bonta Kun 2011-09-26 05:33

So far not bad at all, pretty good for what it is in fact.

I'll be keeping a eye on this.

asbo 2011-09-26 12:50

this manga is good!

ShiroiRyu 2011-09-28 18:57

Chapter 3 is out.
Normal chapter, yes ... But hey, it's really good in same time !

the reason i'm reading this.

Magin 2011-09-29 00:57

It's interesting... by taking away his physical power, we've essentially got a character that could be a practically invincible guy (or at least extremely badass) with his sight... I do hope that if this is a true battle manga, as we get around 100+ chapters, he'll have physical strength... but he'll meet others who also have insane talent in certain areas

As long as it doesn't go down the SWOT path it should be ok.

Spoiler for 4:

Bonta Kun 2011-09-30 14:07

So now 4 chapters in and still going good.

Really quite like the badass moments, they are drawn pretty well.

Sayuri is proving to be pretty amusing in her chibi mode and awesome in her ghost mode:D

hard to say who I like more Sayuri or Tsubame, both great in their own ways.

I believe the captian is one of the guys shown on the colour page of chapter 1 so looks like we still got 2 more characters to be introduced, looking forward to that.

MeroBAKA 2011-10-02 03:25

I spoke too early. She can control his body.
I did not expect this manga to be so popular. True, the badass moments are epic. They remind me of the ones in Eyeshield 21 when Sena displays his talents. If you add the Hikaru no Go-like badass moments, when people feel the overwhelming presence of Sai and the badass moments in combat (Bleach style), it can become... badass :p
I liked the last trial in chapter 4, it is an exercice but it looks like some kind of ritual to me. Wonder if it actually exists.
Waiting for the captain, but the current team members did not appeal to me. I already expect the "cocky" guy (don't know his name and how to qualify him) will go through the max efforts, but will lose his place among the five participating in the group competitions.
I hope there will be other female members to balance the story.
