I certainly hope To Love Ru Darkness ends soon so Yabuki can move on to another manga.

Well, to impress Yabuki, you have to draw a good booty pantyshot and you're in! I miss Yabuki's Black Cat and I always hated TLR because it was the reason Mx0 got cancelled Mad

Shounen Jump kill the creativity anyway. Most entries we will see maybe is all about male teenage hero with superb power and with beautiful heroin and other typical SJ cliche.

I'd be quite impressed if the contestants can write a non-high school-associated story that's worth a damn (it's like already a lost art over there) Laughing

Y'mean spoiler[blind and can't hear] or spoiler[deaf and can't see]?

Even if Yabuki likes your innovation in your manga, SJ will just heartlessly reject all of them if they do not match their criteria. So, it all goes back to the question: why bother?

Now that's how a contest should be run, contrary to the "this is banned, but you can write about anything else" animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2016-06-30/short-story-contest-bans-traveling-to-an-alternate-world-fantasy/.103755

Now only if they make more contests for other specific genres that would be perfect.
We need more new stories. What will be the next One Piece the next Shingeki no Kyojinor or the next Shokugeki no Soma (and no, i don't want a clone, juts something from the same genre) .
I love battle harem but i also like other genres.
