Can't wait to see if people who never seen it have the same reaction as cursing episode of Dexter's Lab.

I'm sure some may enjoy seeing Aisha though. :thumbup:

Tommy Wiseau has a new movie coming out.

It's surprising he still has a career.

I've been messing around with some more characters in SFV. Karin is just way too technical for me. Anyone who's key combos requires lots of consecutive directional inputs in relatively quick succession is the type that I tend to be the worst with. Other than that, I'm still best at execution with Urien so far, followed by Zeku. I still have at least half more of the roster that I have yet to try out at this point, though.

I can't speak much on that because, I still don't have a character that I'd consider my main in SF5. I settled on Karin but she's not Dudley. She has resets and her damage is good. Other than that I don't have a main.

Now as far as Urien is for you is basically how I feel about him as well as Guile, Balrog and now Bison. Characters I would never play turned out being some of the most fun and stylish characters in the game (although Balrog has been butchered) at least for me.

Spring Weapon ending as well would be a surprise wince it hung on so long, but I guess it never really took off. However, if it ends then that will be yet another gag manga ending. I heard some speculation that Saiki is going 4-koma to take over for Lycopene too, which sounds doubtful, but considering everything else going on maybe it isn't so out there.

It feels like they're shaking things up due to sales reaction. From what I've seen, it looks like One Piece, MHA, HxH, and The Promised Neverland are the high sellers that stick around the same of increase, and Haikyu, while still their highest behind OP and HxH, has begun to dip as has Food Wars. I could factor this up to digital sales, but that wouldn't explain other series like the early ones keeping up their sales. Also, Dr. Stone, Kimetsu no Yaiba, and We Never Learn appear to be increasing with each new volume. I suspect they'l be around for awhile with KnY clearly on the verge of breakout, but really needing that anime to give it the shot in the arm it needs. Hinomaru and Yuuna are getting anime, which is just as well as it looks like they're selling about as much as ever and are no longer growing. Saiki ended and Gintama is almost done. Black Clover doesn't appear to be getting much boost from the anime, and RxL and SW9 have stalled.

I'm somewhat doubtful that the Saiki 4-koma is an attempt to replace Lycopene since its 1st volume sales were pretty decent and Jump's short-form gag manga in general don't have high sales expectations.  It feels more like something Asou wanted to do of his own accord, though I'm not sure how long he plans to work on it.  Black Clover got a fairly big boost from its anime, but I'm not sure if it necessarily was as huge as Jump was expecting it to be.  Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if the series ends once it gets around the 20-volume mark.   RxL's sales are pretty good for a new series, but the likelihood of its sales plateauing sooner than Dr. Stone or We Never Learn is very much a concern.  Fujimaki's name recognition can only push sales so much, but I think Jump is trying to rely on that until the series is ready for an anime.  I'm still enjoying the manga, but I somewhat agree with EK that the time-skip has hurt the series' overall momentum. 

I'm not sure about the two new series yet, but I'm not positive about either. Bozebeats has great art, but the writing is fairly flat. Act Age is a good concept well done, but it feels like something that would do better in Sunday.

I still need to read Bozebeats but Act-Age really impressed me.  I definitely agree that it feels like something that wouldn't usually be in Jump, but I feel that is to its advantage.  Hopefully, it won't fall apart narratively after its Jump Start chapters like Full Drive and Golem Hearts did.
