So instead of just giving her an arc dedicated to her in the main story he's giving her a entire new series? I dont like it. Whats going to happen when the stories merge again? They'll just end benios? Seems pointless

Instead of a few pages of Benio, I get a whole chapter. I get twice as much story a week. :shrug: I like it.  :^_^:  B)

It's more like the arc is just gonna show what happened during her absence, I think. It could still keep going when she returns to the main story but idk how long it's even going to last (hopefully there will be enough content to fill up at least one volume)

 

It's also not really pointless from a business standpoint. Including an arc about Benio in Jump SQ Crown was probably intended to get more people to buy copies.

I don't get the hate on Benio? As far as the bickering has been (since the beginning) the major complaints have been that Benio always get the short stick in all the developments, while Rokuro hogs most of it. But now with this new manga she can get most of the screen-time she needs without interrupting the Tournament Arc, while connecting some plot points there and there with both mangas running simultaneously. I mentioned Shaman King because that is how Takei was going to use the Spin-off 'Zero' to develop the Hao-Yabisu plot while the Sakurai Arc was running in the actual 'Flowers':

 

Spoiler

 

As this manga continues to be, I keep remembering Shaman King, the settling was similar to some sense, Yoh and Rokuro are clear opposites but there is something that is very similar, their opinions on their Wives (Yes, Yoh was also engaged at a very early age) tend to be the same. And this Tournament Arc, hnnnghhh. (And don't get me started on Tenma, who is very similar to Hao Asakura)

 

Sousei will fill that void I have from Shaman King until Takei returns to me once more, either later this year or 2018.

Personally, I'm psyched to see Benio getting her own devoted story. It really plays to the author's style.
 
See, one of Sukeno Yoshiaki's greatest strengths is that his pacing in stories are excellent. Never too slow, never too fast. Thus far, even a typically slow tournament arc is handled with fine balance.
 
One thing I was worried about is with the tournament running, how he planned to give any focus on Benio: switching to her mid-tournament is disruptive to pacing, but not switching to her has already been a source of critique as of late.
So her getting her own story is actually the most ideal solution for him, so as to maintain excellent pacing on all fronts.
 
---
 
Hmmm, well the more Sukeno-sensei elaborates on Twin Stars' combat system, the more similar it appears to Shaman King's system, I admit.
 
The Exorcist, their Enchanted Powers and their Enchanted Gear do resemble Shaman King's Shaman, their Furyoku and their Oversouls.
And with the way Shikigami are shown to operate, there's an echo to the Guardian Spirits too

I can't belive it, there actually giving her own series, really? Isn't she one of the main characters, isnt the name of this manga "Twin Star Exorcists" not Exorcist? Instead of giving her, her own spotlight & focus instead just spin her off. Bullshit. :banghead: 

 

What Benio is going though is so much more interesting, she is currently in hell receiving help from the demon that murdered her parents on a quest to the first ever Basara so she can revive her Anti-Christ powers. Instead we get a run of the mill tournament arc where Rokuro's fights are the only ones of importance. Seriously who gives a fuck about Shimon? Dude is gonna get his ass kicked no matter what, his opponent can handle kaiju class impurities with ease while Shimon at his strongest couldn't majorly damage a single Basara. His fight is pointless & that bullshit about trying your best & giving it your all doesn't make it any less worse than it is.

To be fair, even if we take into account some scenes from her debut chapter, Mayura hadn't ever quite been just a fan service character. Heck, her first conversation with Seigen already shown that she has the moxie to scold her scary dad.

 

Subaru's last comments though were ominous. Who is "that child"? (The Japanese was just as ambiguous by the way)

Let's hope it's not her old student. I wouldn't know how to feel about a Benio vs Mayura showdown.

 

On a lighter note, seeing Mayura and Subaru together is like seeing a classic showdown between Ichiko and Momiji all over again.

Given the reveal of Doman inside her, I am inclined to believe that during her tutelage, Subaru found about Benio's hidden powers and failed to kill her, this would explain why Arima seemed to know about what was inside her before Doman appeared.

cause I think this will cause the author to spread himself too thin. And as we've seen wit other mangas, that can be detrimental to the author and the main story. All for benio. So yea I'm bitter
