That being said, I agree, there's definitely much better: "Eden: It's an Endless World!", for instance. However, this type of "much, much better" is extremely rare to come by and I seriously doubt "Feng Shen Ji" will be on a completely different level, by my standards. Though I'm definitely open to it being better than AoT, you'd have to elaborate- specifically with respect to my own preferences, if you want to convince me it's even slightly possible that there is above a 1% chance that it's "much, much better." =^p

Regardless, let us say it is way way better. That really doesn't explain your surprise here. I've never understood the whole "letting-relative-quality-differences-get-to-you-and-diminish-your-enjoyment-of-something-else" idea. Yeah, to an extent sure, but once something has passed a certain level to become "good", it doesn't matter if something else is a million or a billion times better. Good is freaking good. And you can always be excited about good if you're able to think more abstractly and look past one's self-induced relative quality standards. In other words, it's completely possible for me to be this excited and realize that a whole completely different level of awesome exists. It comes natural to me, but maybe that's just because I'm too awesome.

I get what you're saying... but here's the a general consensus from people here and on other boards:
1. Better quality artwork.
2. Colored. Every page.
3. Usually a weekly release.
4. The guy you think is the main character in chapter 1, dies within the first 5-10 chapters (can't remember which one).

From what I've read in other forums (Sharogy's wiki thread link), there is a lot more on the way that is going to happen.
