Bakuman is both more interesting to read and something happens every chapter. I would venture to say that right from the start it had better characterization than either Bleach or Naruto.
I kind of agree with the whole, "wait a while and power out a completed, or several chapter updated, manga." But that just goes to show that there is pretty much no new weekly manga that can hold someones attention.
Let's face it people, there's no "new" weekly manga that is any good except for Bakuman. And even the "old" (years running) weekly manga has slowly turned into crap, as only One Piece seems to remain fresh.
I would say the good ongoing ones (weekly release) I am reading are:
Naruto (although kinda slow T_T)
But this is all opinion, not much point in you telling us what you deem good.
There are three types of people in the world. Those who can count, and those who can't.
Indeed...this comes down to a matter of opinion. What you may consider mundane is the exact opposite from another's perspective. I think there are a number of good weekly mangas like Reborn, OP and Psyren.
