I'm thinking about starting this series, I picked up a JUMP and it looked interesting.
I'm not normally into sports manga, although this one seems good.

My Top manga:
1. Yu-Gi-Oh!
2. Death Note
3. Fullmetal Alchemist
4. Bakuman.
5. Love Hina

Well, since you are a casual sport manga reader, maybe it will be appealing. It's an ok manga, but not exactly something that will leave you amazed. Judge by yourself, it's more exciting that way laugh

This week's favorites:

- Joshi Kausei

If I had to pin down what I like about this manga, it's probably the characterization. Artwork is evidently of good quality and the plot, like most Shounens, tend to do away with reality here and there but otherwise stick to the laws of nature (I am willing to swallow 3m jumps).

You'll notice right from the beginning, though, that we're dealing with past and future simultaneously. The author foreshadows - actually, tells - of the "Generation of Miracles" from Kuroko's past, and indeed that's who we're dealing with throughout the manga: the main character who's never on anyone's radar. The author does a brilliant job of weaving in everyone's story bit by bit, and we see more and more of Kuroko's past and how it relates with the others. Right now, in particular, I'm anxiously waiting for more evidence of the Kuroko-Aomine relationship, which the author has sneakily kept us in suspense about (evidently, Aomine still regards Kuroko highly, so the question is why did they "break up"?)

My advice: if you're into characterization and relationships (not the shoujo kind), I strongly recommend this manga. If you're looking for fast-paced action, it's alright, but there won't be any swords or the supernatural. If you're into short-term, quick reading, don't bother - this one is long-drawn, but deeply satisfying throughout.

1. 10,000 chapters and counting. (...Otaku alert!)
2. I love Comedy/Romance/School Life (as you probably can tell!), especially when they're all together.
3. I welcome spiffy debate but I don't do quarreling (or forum trolling).
