Awful. That's what too much Air Gear will do to you.

I think the cover looks fine. Anyone have a link to it or an HQ version?

I like how the clothes are drawn but the face and neck looks awkward.

One more thing.. where did her breasts go?

My problem with the cover is that it looks like Oh! Great just took some unused piece of Air Gear art, modified the hairstyle to make it Aya, and then passed the thing on to an assistant to colour using Microsoft Paint 3 hours before the submission deadline or something. Compared with the colours of vol 15, the dynamism of vol 6, and the composition of vol 8, this piece falls flat on all counts. I guess sensei just spent too much time on the Soichirou cover for the new UJ.

Yes. Except maybe for the color pattern on her shoulder, this illustration looks quite mediocre.

wow, this was a serious let down.........as much hype as it was getting from the adverts (1,000 copies!), i was hoping that we'd get an awesome souichirou cover with his new look.........i think this one and vol 7 are the worst covers. meh~

Here's a large version. Not that it makes it any better...

Though, I do wonder who stole Aya's humongous bust and where are they hinding it. 8)

Which is why I suspected this was an unused AG piece...

Alternate TJTG16 cover in Ultra Jump

Post by FuguTabetai » Tue Jan 30, 2007 6:57 pm

In this month's Ultra Jump there was an alternate TJTG16 cover. It is much nicer, in subdued shades of brown, of a named Madoka (I think.)

This weekend I'll take a picture of it (no scanner) and announce a contest where I'll give it away to whoever can help me update Character pages and chapter summaries.

I've just been crazy busy (48 hours of work from Friday to Monday morning) this week, so I haven't had time to do anything outside of work.

You mean this?

That's Aya (from the Ancient arc), not Madoka.

.......i was wondering why the out-sert on vol 16 said it was a remixed cover. does anyone know how to get this version also?

it's interesting too that the color insert in vol 16 has the ch.100 picture.

is the isbn different? if so i'd love to know it so i can order it :D

edit- oops, does it come in the feb issue of UJ? if so, nvm i'll get that soon enough :P

Mr. Prophet, yes that is the cover that I have. I like it a lot better than the official cover. I wasn't sure who it was - I'm pretty bad at putting names to faces.

Iijyanaika, yes the February issue.

No extra material for this volume. The cover is still as ugly in real-life, though.

Well, it does seem that TJTG is second to Air Gear as far as Oh! Great's manga priorities are concerned—which is sort of a disappointment in my opinion.

I'm just curious. (This is more of a question to Air Gear readers.) How is the graphic quality of that manga going recently?

Average. Over the last couple dozen chapters of AG I couldn't notice any significant increase or decrease in quality.

It's still lower than TJTG in complexity, but not by much. And the story is still as stupid as before. 8)

Has anyone else noticed on the inside of the front covers from at least volume 12 (I haven't bothered checking any before that) it states in english "cover design; kobayashi mitsuru (geni a loide)"
