    I've attempted to start like... three of them over the last year or so and have received no pushback from mods for doing so.

    I think as long as we're not overwhelmed with them, like it was like... 2008 - 2012, then I don't think the mods will mind to be honest.

    Are you suggesting that the board moderator is the only one who fully understands how this place is run these days? Like, everyone else is just winging it?

    That is a very unconventional way to operate a forum. I think I like it.

    More that no one's really stated anything, RPGs fell out of fashion for a hard like... two years or so, so it's pretty much Guy and Watcher's call as to whether they care or if there is a limitation.

    The more things stay the same, the more things change. Or visa versa.

    I'm fine with more myself but you might want to double check with Watcher to be sure.

    Well, it's not like I have any plans or anything. I just like to know the regulations since I pride myself on being an orderly fellow.

    Also, Hi Ghost!
    Good to see you.

    Oh yeah, Kaiju No. 8 is super fun.

    The art is just really good and so far the plot is a lot of fun. Just the idea that our main character is a dude in his 30s is novel enough.

    I'd also recommend that you check out Phantom Seer, also in Jump. It's only got three chapters so far but I'm kinda loving it already. It leans a bit more in the horror territory.

    That's also been loosely pinging on my radar recently, it's on the list.

    I second Phantom Seer. It’s pretty damn good. Tsui no Taimashi and Juujika no Rokunin are other manga that I’m digging at the moment.
