Canceled. What a pity!
I think this manga is promising to be a really good one. A normal shounen about good vs bad but the fact that the main characters must hold hands make it quite unique. Arts and comedy is also good.
It was canceled. The reason that it is released in Shounen Jump but it is about a boy and a girl instead of focusing to a cool male character, is totaly dumb, stupid... damm it...

How can they cut Double Arts off??
Seriously, how could they!? This is a EXTREMELY good manga and I enjoyed every second of it! [I guess it appeals more to American artists...] The art designs were pretty unique and the plot was made nicely... WHY!? [Well.. Answering my own question and many other's, this was published in one of Shonen Jump's magazines... They thought it was starting to get closer to romance so readers got worried and wanted the series to change and/or end. If Double Arts was published in a Shojo magazine, it would have done better.] So overall, I think Double Arts should be translated.
A great manga that deserves better
Ever since the first chapter, Double Arts was one of the few mangas that was not only original, but it had a complex plot that had so many questions with very few answers.
The characters stand out with amazement and lots of development were seen at such a good pace, but most of all, the storyline was the main reason why I started to read this manga in the first place.
Sadly, it seems that most WSJ readers (in Japan), didn't find this intriquing like some did, and seemingly had the series canceled on purpose, not giving it or the author a chance to flesh it out more.
Despite this, however, I see a good future for Naoshi Komi. If memory serves correctly, Tite Kubo has his first manga series, Zombie Powder, with not so satisfactory results, but did well the second time with Bleach. I'm confident that Naoshi Komi would do exactly the same thing with his next project.
TOTAL SUCKERPUNCH TO THE BALLS
OMGGG not againnn!!! I started reading double arts yesterday from chp1-11 and i stopped because i thought to myself "this is a good manga and very original too...i should hold onto it until 20-30 chapters so that i can enjoy reading the rest of the chapters" but HELL NO it was short lived!!! when i just found out today that double arts was cancelled i felt that my balls were completely crushed by the hand of the japanese people. The same thing happened to Mx0 too.
Please (T.T).....to anyone who is very close to the japanese manga community out there i really wish that this manga is to be continue further!! i hope the petition linked by zachd06 will help WSJ to realise that people outside of japan loves Double Arts. I feel sorry for the author..its a shame that his/her original artwork is being cancelled due to low ratings...oh man japanese people really are perverted thats why mangas like to-love-ru still exists because its so much fan service....nowadays mangas with lotsa fan-service and very obvious cliched storyline are bound to survive till the end.I really dont get it.
*edited* Oh and btw about the petition thingy how will it reach the japanese people?? Will they ever try to understand english or even read it?? From my past experience living in japan...there are the type of people who "lived in their own world" with exceptions to the gaming and sports industry that is...but things like this i doubt they will even bother unless you breathe the same air as them or unless you are a super-duper celebrity from hollywood or a football star...anyway sorry for being political heh =)

Great Manga! It shouldn't have been cancelled though....
This was my favorite new series! It had an enjoyable story, lovable characters, and great humor. It never should been cancelled. I even signed a petition here even though I usually don't do that sort of stuff since it never works anyway. It does give me a nice feeling when I see all of the signatures anyway.
I just ask, why did this get canceled... How is To Love Ru still in existence and this gets canceled, its a real shame. This series showed such great potential.
I don't believe this
After reading chapter 23 I thought something wasn't quite right. I had no idea that the series had ended because of 'low ratings'. It's a shame that this has happened because this series had great potential and a lot of people were enjoying it. Shame on you WSJ for cancelling a promising series.
I started reading this when it came out... And I really liked it too! I had been kind of hoping that it would end with those two.. you know.. like, how it did.. But it was too soon!! The ending is totally open for continuation though.. But I really don't know if it will be continued or not.. But I hope it does.. HOPE.. I like Komi Naoshi's works. AND I'M SO BUMMED THAT THIS HAPPENED! ..unpopular, my butt. I can't believe it.
DISCONTINUED?!?! I was so in love with this series, and I'm SURE I'm not the only one. Does anyone know why exactly it got discontinued?
