Be interesting to see how he went from let's help these poor struggling kids to Oppress All Humans.

^Hopefully, we'll find out the story behind his change to the dark side BEFORE SJ decides to go on yet another manga-scrapping spree.

Tico had great boobs and a great body, and i was almost sure Mr Black would be the end boss of the entire manga, but it seems this manga'll have another short run (possibly shorter than magico)
i'll miss tico, just for the boobs

That reminds me, I guess Sensei isn't the only one with a bulge.....


Anyway, next chapter's out:


Spoiler for chapter 12:




Still, as much as the series is picking up now, it seems that it's not very popular at all (apparently, it ranked dead last for 2 issues in a row). This makes me more sad as it seems more likely that the series will be getting scrapped, but I'm still crossing my fingers for a miracle......

Looks to me that he's just tossing in any random plot twist he thought about using over the next six months to get it finished in a couple of weeks.

So I guess there needed to be some more BULGING Tico boobage to ensure the series' survival, huh?

As far as I know, the two first volumes of the series are gonna be released simultaneously, and this is done only with series that gain a big popularity.

Strange.

Well, chopping block or not, I'll stick with the series until the end. That being said, the latest chapter has been translated:

Well, it looks like it's been confirmed all right: Bulge is getting axed. Apparently, the spoilers noted that the next chapter would be the conclusion of this series. Oh well..... it nice while it lasted.


But looking on the bright side, let's hope that Horikoshi (the author) finds more success with his next series....

So anyway, on the next-to-last chapter:

Also, it looks like the author left this message in the Jump issue (credit goes to Aohige for translation:

And so a fond farewell and a brief critique to the Obese Doctor. The loose ends were collected nicely and saving one city must stand in for liberating the whole planet. A big hint that the first prince was meant to survive and be a later part of the story.

It was a fun ride and I wish the mangaka well, but it was flawed. The art was well enough, especially the diverse characters and aliens, but not compelling. There were no grand battlefields, scenic landscapes or gorgeous sunsets. The plot was contrived, even for shonen. Prince and the Pauper, but the prince immediately dies and the king knowingly sends the stranger pauper quickly on a quest the prince wasn't going to do. The quest itself is mind-boggling. The untrained stranger is handed the most secret, most valuable, most powerful weapon in the land and told to go conquer the planet with one attendant! Even the slice of life is underwhelming. Astro's main connection with his children is working hard to try and feed them.

So with my vast experience in the Jump manga publishing business (mainly from reading Bakuman) my analysis. This was a fun read and probably lots of peoples' 5th favorite manga. Not so much in anybody's top three. Too bad.

^Yeah, I thought it was neat how the author put a twist on the whole "Prince and the Pauper" routine early on. Even more interesting that it was implied that the fake prince may still be alive after all. Sadly, we'll probably never know for sure what his fate was since Horikoshi was forced to rush the ending.....



Anyway, the last chapter was still nice, IMO. Sensei may have popped his last boner, but as I already said a few posts back, here's to hoping that the author's next series will meet with success, yeah?
