    Why even bother putting in Kumagawa? He never wins.

    • ej

      • Kobracon

      • Raiyu

        Keep reading what? I already finished it.

        • http://popculturesocialclub.com/ DreamDrop♥

          Misogi wins quite a few times

          • Raiyu

            It was a joke…

            • http://popculturesocialclub.com/ DreamDrop♥

              I know. I just didn’t play along ;P

          • J_Joestar

            depends on how you define a “win”
            heck the whole successor arc is about redefining what is winning and what is losing.

  • almostautumn

    O~o

    That chick is crazily busted.

  • gigantor21

    That chest is Ivy-tier, LOL.

    • Kobracon

      Shes basically a perfect human being in the show XD She wins at everything. Quite literally.

      • http://popculturesocialclub.com/ DreamDrop♥

        *spoilers* not everything.

        • Kobracon

          Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

          • http://popculturesocialclub.com/ DreamDrop♥

            I didn’t say it!

        • Mugen555

          FRESH!!!!

          • http://popculturesocialclub.com/ DreamDrop♥

            Devil style.

      • HighBrowDrifter

        Ahah……she sure does ( ಥ⌣ಥ)……PERV MODE ACTIVATED!

        • Kobracon

          Be careful of her Super Saiyan mode

          • HighBrowDrifter

            Kobracon…….don’t make me go SUPER SUPREME PERV MODE!……No one will be left untarnished ლ(́◉◞౪◟◉‵ლ)

            • J_Joestar

              it is fine, she is an exhibitionist herself, her brother is an extreme siscon, her sister is a sadomasochist, her dad is a polygamist… she even has a cousin who is into girl’s shoes.

  • Nitraion

    Lol i drop this series because to weird to me…
    but i see lot of request about medaka being playable there you go!!

    • Kobracon

      HAH! Then be very VERY cautious of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure then XD

    • J_Joestar

      it isn’t a normal Shounen series, it is a bit of a satirical jab at a lot of normal Shounen conventions and requires some reading between the lines to fully appreciate.

  • Forty

    Aww yeah, Medaka was just who I was hoping for.

  • Kobracon

    OH CRAP! Game over, man! GAME OVER! Now that Medaka is here, NO ONE can win!

    • Kobracon

      What the…whats with the downvotes? Do people not like Medaka or something? Or are they misinterpreting my post?

      • RedDragon10

        Clearly they don’t know that Medaka’s skill is pretty much that she can’t lose. At all. at anything, pretty much.

        • J_Joestar

          Well to be fair, her abnormality “The End” is pretty much just an extreme version of what most Shounen Jump Heroes tend to do, learn skills/abilities of others quickly and eventually gain mastery beyond what original teacher’s skills.
          Just that most others need training arcs and stuff, while she eventually can just see a skill once (or even hear about it) then instantly learns and levels it up to max.

  • kirby755

    Well there’s finally a female in the game and it’s one of my favorite ones too.

    • Kobracon

      What’re ya talkin abooout? We have Kensh-oh wait….

      • kirby755

        That was a good one there man lol.

  • HighBrowDrifter

    Is that…..a Drilldo? DEAR MOTHER OF SCREWS!

    • Kobracon

      Its just a screw actually. A big big screw

      • HighBrowDrifter

        I wonder if……it has a particular use in this game….*cough, cough*

    • Sae-Won Yoon

      >Drilldo

      That’s a first.

      • Kobracon

        Well I guess that means you haven’t read any Gurren Lagann Doujinshi before…. >.<

        • HighBrowDrifter

          That redhead……Drilldo ernight long!

          P.s: Guess Nintendo knew how to…….penetrate its customers back during the Game Boy Advance era.
          Lol……”Rumble feature!”. Yeah, that gets em going.

          。◕‿◕。)

          • Kobracon

            Aw man that was such a fun game. Aw…now you made me sad that there isn’t any more of this awesome platformer…

            • HighBrowDrifter

              That and Swordcraft Story were the bomb!…So many amazing GBA games, so little time to play them all…..oh the nostalgia…..

              But you know what……its time for them to reboot various games on 3ds! NINTENDO DO IT NOW!

      • HighBrowDrifter

        I’ am glad I could be of service.

  • Leon_Tekashi

    You know, you think Harada can pull a Project X Zone and get this localized as well?

    • Kobracon

      Did Project X Zone sell well? Sadly not….

      Did YOU buy it?! >:(

      I bought it despite not even having a 3DS yet!

      • $19298411

        Actually it sold alright….and the chances of this getting published here are 0 much like the other Jump Stars games.

        • Kobracon

          Oh thats good. And yeah I haven’t seen an english Jump game yet….

      • Leon_Tekashi

        I would have if I had the money.

    • The Gab

      Fans can ask for it on his twitter account

    • J_Joestar

      video game licenses outside of Japan aren’t spread out like crazy unlike Anime/Manga licenses though. It would take lot more work, like close to SRW level of work to bring this over.

  • http://popculturesocialclub.com/ DreamDrop♥

    And sold.

  • epy

    Now I really wish they had gone with cell shading.

    • Budgiecat

      I think they’re using the Zenkai Battle Royale arcade engine..

  • Budgiecat

    I’ve never even heard of this Manga…

    Why are they holding back on revealing the obvious shoe ins like Kenshiro, Seiya, Jotaro, Bobobo, Arale, Dark Schnieder, Yugi, Cobra, Nube,Tsuna, Sena, etc?

    • Speedo Redempteur

      Manga got midly popular and got 2 animated seasons recently … It’s even from an author that is Very very popular …

      In short : you should check it out.

      • Willgaea

        “I hear what your saying, but Bastard!! is the best selling manga of all time.” -Kanye west. (quote is not accurate)

    • Willgaea

      Considering Bastard!! was Jumps best selling manga series of all time, He should be a default character.

      • Kobracon

        Yeah Bastard is the bomb!

        ….hmm…is it just me? or do the oldest and most well selling manga all seem to have english band references in them? (The Heavy Metal Band names in Bastard!! and all the JoJo Stand names)

      • SOLOmio

        JOJO $ EVER! JOJOLION U MY NEW COOL CHARACTER it ‘s like fusion in a bad way!
        EDIT:
        BASTARD IS COOL AS WELL I SHOULD HAVE A REBOOT IN ANIME!

    • Kobracon

      Its quite good actually. I highly recommend it. Creative powers and after reading JoJo, looking back at Medaka, I definitely feel some of the same vibes with its powers.

      Its like if JoJo was drawn by the modern manga/anime look. Also don’t let the first few chapters of Slice of School Life fool you into thinking its a K-On or Lucky Star, the series is also known as the infamous Genre Shifter

      • Urien (仙人をリンク)

        Second this. Especially since it shifts like 3 genres and it’s like, “Dafuq is this bag o’ awesome?!

    • Urien (仙人をリンク)

      I think Tsuna and Jotaro are going to be given. Yugi would be a REALLY interesting person to see, but I’m not too sure how he’d play.

  • bloodiOS

    The heck?! Where is Anshin’in?

    • Kobracon

      That….would be beyond OP….

      • SOLOmio

        you don’t know the meaning of “OP” to give to whatever that guy is! measure your words carefully please!

        • Kobracon

          Then you don’t know Anshin’in. Please do some research. She is quite possibly the OP-est character if she was in the game.

          • SOLOmio

            yeah i know the guy (girl) that leaves in other D. she has brown hair and yellow bandanna or something and still she was beat by the ogre guy and killed somehow she back to life. still don’t consider OP of the game maybe of medaka but in game (Jump) even Jaguar or sakamoto even Orin could beat her in terms of power!
            sorry for the long note! -_- opinions have to be shared!

            • Kobracon

              Wait what? Anshin’in is a chick in Medaka Box and she has white long hair and limitless supply of powers and abilities. NO idea who u are talking about…

              • SOLOmio

                dude she and the girl in brown hair are the same!! check the manga or the especial from the anime ep 11 or something and tell me if they ar not the same!! google if u may and u shall see…

                EDIT:
                http://karmaburn.com/files/screenshots/medaka_box/abnormal/anshininstitch1200x1800.jpg

                • Kobracon

                  OK my bad I forgot her original form looked like that, but her white hair form is INSANE. Did you finish the manga? Shes almost has the power of a god. The anime never reached that part but she is very much overpowered.

                  • SOLOmio

                    nah! i only went to the part where medaka defeats the Ogre”Fresh” and everyone this she’s dead. But i’ll read from that point until the end or better re-read from the beginning and try to see your point of view!

                    • Kobracon

                      Yeah you know all those powers each Abnormal has? Anshin’in has like….12,858,051,967,633,865 skills in total…..I am not even joking.

                    • J_Joestar

                      They also state that she could probably come back to life if she ever wanted to, especially since Iihiko’s ability to do permanent damage was gone after his defeat. She just doesn’t feel that she needs to come back anymore.

  • Sae-Won Yoon

    YES! They put in Kumagawa!

  • TimesTicking

    Now the only thing they need to do is announce this game outside of Japan.

  • Eclipse

    Sweet, these were the two that I really wanted to see in this~!

    Even if it’s as DLC, I hope that they add Ajimu Najimi.

    • Coolwihp

      Oh yeah! Since they’ve added these 2 I think it necessary to add Anshin’in. Also I just love her…

      • http://www.facebook.com/micheal.scott.315 Micheal Scott

        I seconded that Anshin’in is my fav too

        • J_Joestar

          *sees the screen just flood with text and then the enemy instantly loses*

          • http://www.facebook.com/micheal.scott.315 Micheal Scott

            lol i was so thinking that too and her finisher
            she point her finger at her head and blow’s away
            the universe!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/micheal.scott.315 Micheal Scott

    ok i had a feel Medaka was going to be in it but i didnt see this
    Kumagawa yes need gameplay, moves, and finisher.
    ALL-Fiction!!!

  • SOLOmio

    I wanted seya, jotaro, momotaro, reborn, ALPHA, Jaguar or Tsuna to be next but instead i see medaka. LOL
