[modpost] sad news...  
I'm sure many of you have already heard the news, but Double Arts has been cancelled and the final chapter will appear in this week's issue of Weekly Jump. Although its first tankobon sold very well, it had been dropping in the weekly rankings for the past month or so, and Jump editors are unforgiving.

That said, this community isn't going anywhere, and I hope that people will continue to contribute their Double Arts fanwork and share the love for Komi Naoshi-sensei's great debut series.

Thanks and good luck to Komi-sensei ~ Let's cheer him on, and look forward to his next work!

and now i'm gonna go sit in a corner and cry for a bit.;_;

I've pretty much lost faith in them.

Seriously, I've fallen in love with so many recent series lately only to have Jump dump them like this. Jump needs to stop breaking my heart.

Meh. Just as I was getting into it... this happened. Ah well. I'd REALLY wanted to see more of Iku...

Thanks for starting and keeping up the com all this while, Haya.

I feel bad because I'd let it slide for a bit =.=; and was just starting to get it back on track when THIS happened. *joins Tamaki planting mushrooms in the corner*

Oh no! This is terrible.

Is the comic not the artist's on personal intellectual property? What are the odds of being picked up by another magazine or maybe getting published independently? I don't know much about how things get published in Japan but crap. I want to see a resolution for the story.

Can Komi-sensei not continue it anyway? ...........Okay so I know he has to like, make money but T_________________________T

And the most recent chapter was hilarious...

This is so not fair!!

Double Arts was a series that actually had original ideas, as opposed to a lot of other manga series out there (not just Jump series either!).

............at least it was good while it lasted.

Guess what?? I'm going to cosplay (as El) DA anyway!!! JUST TO TELL THE JUMP-FOLKS : IN YOUR FACE ! ! ! *grrrr*

Oh gods, it's some sort of replay of Shaman King except in a quicker and deadlier fashion...

Goddammit Jump.

And right after the real action started! Jump needs to go find a cliff, a very high one!

This is one of my favorites.

…well this guarantees that I won't start reading a new WJ series before it gets to at least 5 volumes. :/ Fuck you, Shuueisha and WJ editors. FUCK YOU.

I'm really disappointed that this series is going to be truncated. It was one of the only shounen series I liked because it stressed an equality between a boy and a girl, it had humor appropriately added in scenes, and it's not as fanservicey as other titles (read: it wasn't all tits and ass). I was also looking forward to more development between Elraine and Kili, mostly what exactly are they to each other, in a sense (or at least see Elraine provide stability because all we've seen is Kili helping Elraine so I'd like to see Elraine helping Kili out emotionally more). And I wanted to see if Sui would try to beat up Fallan again~ (;A;)

o.o B-But they can't drop it! I just got around to joining the community!

There go my dreams of it getting licensed. T-T

well, there's a chance that if Komi-sensei's next series is a super mega hit, Double Arts might get licenced the way Zombie Powder got licenced because of Bleach and Watsuki "Kenshin" Nobuhiro's cancelled series Gun Blaze West and Buso Renkin both got licenced because of Kenshin. But it will take a very very long time...;_;
