My feelings are that Naruto goes on until early 2011, just based on what is left to cover in the manga. I don't think Kishimoto is going to rush the ending.

I think he'll prove not to be a one-hit wonder, as well. Say what you will about Naruto, Kishimoto is a guy who comes up with a lot of ideas. I think he's proven that, and that will mean that he'll be able to develop another hit. I doubt he'll ever put out something quite as successful as Naruto again, but I do think that he'll succeed post-Naruto.

I also think you could make an argument that Kishimoto and Konomi created (and continue to create) series so massively successful and long running that they deserve to be inducted simply for Naruto and Prince of Tennis. I wouldn't say right away, but certainly eventually. It's the same argument that I think people would make for Morikawa and Aoyama, looking outside of Jump.

I think you are wrong. Dragonball(Z) made Manga popular worldwide. Naruto just surfed on the wave made by Toriyama.

I disagree. DBZ was very important for one generation, but it's Naruto that's sustaining that interest and bringing in new fans now that Dragonball has, well, ended. I remember watching DBZ as a child, but I don't even see it on TV anymore. Kids these days are wearing Naruto headbands; Naruto's got a ton of Shonen Jump covers (though Ichigo now has a lot, too <_<). Dragonball may have introduced people to manga and anime overseas (though it's hardly the only series to have done so), but it's not the series of today. And the market wasn't nearly as big back then.

Naruto has definitely had a huge influence on manga and manga fans - maybe not in Japan so much, but overseas for sure. The question is, does Japan care as much about a series' influence outside its borders? I kind of doubt it, personally. I don't think Naruto will get the recognition it deserves for influencing a new generation of fans the way it has (then again, knowing how obnoxious some of those fans can be... =P).

i think luck also played part in overseas popularity;dragonball's reach was limited but naruto gained because it coincided with the rise of video streaming sites.

Thanks for the scans, Heiji-sama!

Funny how it's stated on the cover that Kuroko's CP is a reward for its BIG popularity...yeah, right.
And the "Naruto 10 Years Special Memorial Book"'s planning is "in progress".

For the new series, I'm kinda okay with Neko Wappa!. It definitely doesn't look like a "MUST READ!!!" series to me but I think I'll glimpse through it once there are 2 or 3 chaps out.
The preview for Asou's Kanata Seven Change looks kinda two-edged. While some pictures look really funny and cool others are just too plain...but I'm looking forward to it. :tem

Alright, now its been further cemented that I'm not reading Neko Wappa. Not that there was much chance of me budging to begin with.


If I remember right, Kuroko's actually selling very good. So it might not be in a popular position in the ToC, it is in the Sales numbers.

If that is their reason this time it makes me wonder what was the reason for the other 3 times it dropped to the bottom 5 and they gave it color pages. They should just let it bottom dwell like To Love Ru if its sales are going to nullify its poor rankings.

He may not have needed 50 something pages to get it done. Sometimes new manga may start off with more or less than the 50-60 page range.

it was pretty decent. seemed like the mangaka decided to put more action than the oneshot, but I'm not sure about doing well on WSJ. can't really say I like the actual chapter better than the oneshot.
it seemed more like a manga for other places like Shounen Sunday. its not JUMP-like, but its not original either.

Neko Wappa looks....decent. I'll give it a try since every series deserves at least a try but doesn't look like something I'm gonna like. But I really hope its not as, for lack of a better word, silly as Rilienthal.

Also, Seven Changes looks like it might be pretty good.

All I ask of Neko is that it's silly! The art reminds me of something from the '50's. A nice, light hearted, old school shonen is what I'm hoping for. The preview of Asou's new series looks good. Nice to see two goofy looking series coming at once, Jump needs some more light, fun manga!

November 06, 2009, 11:12 AM
I did not care for Rilienthal either. What I'm hoping for something a little easier going, I find a lot of Jump series, not just the action series, to be to similar in mood. A few exceptions aside there are a lot of intense, high tempo manga in Jump. Something laid back to read every weekend would be nice.

As for Rilienthal I hear chapter 2 is an improvement. We'll see. Seeing as it will probably be canceled eventually I don't want to get attached but for the time being I will keep reading.

now that interesting. maybe Rilienthal isn't going to be a failure.
so now that Kagijin and Akaboshi are gone, Medaka hits the bottom.

Kuroko is in the bottom. I guess another color page is on its way :p

Unexpected. I was not foreseeing Waji ending so soon. At least since it wasn't ranking as poorly as when it started.

Medaka in last place. This doesn't look good for it at all.

Kuroko back where it belongs. Hopefully it doesn't get another color page. Just let it sit where it belongs.

Shinigami drops down for the first time and Rilienthal actually clawed its way out. I was expecting both to be together.

I'm not all that worried about Psyren. It will probably bounce back next week.

If only it would be like a few other series and die after a year but Jump favors it too much. I think it could remain lower. Just because it reaches a year that doesn't automatically mean it will rise. People apparently aren't liking its recent chapters all that much.

Makes me laugh at that one arrogant line it had when it started. If something else comes along I'd imagine it would be another gag that replaces Wajimania.

It looks to me like they started earlier this year with the new series. So the next round of series may start earlier for 2010 as well. I doubt they would seriously wait even longer to start the next round.

Wait, last I checked Kuroko was not in every bottom five. If other series were held to the same standards Psyren, Sket Dance and Mago would have been canceled long ago, nothing that falls into the bottom five would ever deserve color except for series everyone (except me apparantly :/) likes that were almost always in the bottom five. Almost every series takes a turn in the bottom five, if everyone of them were penalized the only series that would deserve color would be Bleach, One Piece, Naruto, and Mago. Even Reborn and Gintama have been near the bottom in the last six months. I don't think everyone is annoyed that Kuroko gets color; I think they are annoyed that they don't like Kuroko and it is still thriving. I'm not a fan but I will be honest: except for Hoopmen it is a hell of a lot better than any of the 2009 series that were already canceled. As Ataru said: it's one year anniversary is about a month away. Kuroko is a part of the magazine, get used to it.

As for Waji: don't care, didn't read it. Wouldn't have cared if it had stayed either. Don't care about more new Jump series either. The only new series I care about is Yuki Urushibara's comeback later this month. (google her if you don't know who she is, she wrote one of the greatest manga of all time).

The complaints aren't unjustified. What other series has gotten the majority of their color pages after ranking poorly? Imagine if something like Double Arts got this blatant level of favoritism. It would still be alive too. Only 2-3 of those colors(issues 12, 14, and maybe 24) could really be deserved. The former 2 before it began tanking.

Also Kuroko was in the bottom 5 consecutively for at least a month before yet Jump still saved it. It IS annoying when something like that happens while other series are left to fight on their own.

As for the new series, I don't plan on reading anymore of WSJ's cannon fodder for the time being. Maybe if something manages to establish itself I'll give it a try.

I don't disagree with the ToC almost everytime, I'm sure that goes for a lot of people. I'm not saying Kuroko is a top 5 series, because that isn't so (imo), WSJ has better series to offer at the moment.

When I said that about Kuroko, people, what I meant to say that a year = automatic color page. It has nothing to do with ranking or how good or bad it is, just that it's getting an automatic color page owed for it since it started at the time it did. It's not like it's getting a cover: Jump did away with that back in '08 for the most part.

Wajima's gone. No shocker there. Don't really feel anything at all for it. Medaka is pretty low, it will probably end up going next round if it doesn't pull itself up soon. Shinigami tanks and rilienthal pulls outta the bottom...did not see that coming but good for the talking dog.

And Kuroko is low once again, its not a bad series; its interesting enough to where I'll read it when scans are available, but there is nothing that makes me just really like it like some other series. I honestly don't care if it stays or goes though I would love for another sports series to show up soon.

I hope Shinigami rises. From what I've seen its a pretty entertaining manga, not to mention it has an awesome art style. To be honest I haven't read Rilienthal yet so I can't tell why it ranked higher than Shinigami. Maybe I should read it now?

As for the Kuroko colour spread whoring, I'm not as offended as most people, but it definitely has more colour pages than it deserves. I'm not sure but I think Psyren and Sket Dance have ranked better than it recently, yet they haven't had as many colours as Kuroko. Mago hasn't either and its ranking has been great these past weeks.

It would seem Jump for the often ends the a bunch of mangas it plans to end on the last issues of the year. Anyone else noticed?
Akaboshi was issue 49, Kagijin was issue 50, Wajimania is 51...

Last year, Barihaken was canceled in 52 and Chagecha in 49.

They cancel other stuff at other parts of the year, but they do tend to have a lot at the end issues. End issues as in like 49-52, not actually end of the year which are like 1-5.

I have this feeling Kuroko might go when another sport series shows up and does well in the sales department and in the ToC.

It's an enjoyable read, it's not a great series, but it's not that bad either. But just like you I wouldn't mind if it stays or goes. But then again, I have that with a lot of Jump series at the moment. :p

It would seem Jump for the often ends the a bunch of mangas it plans to end on the last issues of the year. Anyone else noticed?
Akaboshi was issue 49, Kagijin was issue 50, Wajimania is 51...

Last year, Barihaken was canceled in 52 and Chagecha in 49.

They cancel other stuff at other parts of the year, but they do tend to have a lot at the end issues. End issues as in like 49-52, not actually end of the year which are like 1-5.

Generally all magazines like to introduce new series for issue 1. As the start of the fiscal year/new subscriber period they make sure something special is included. For Jump that means cancellations in the last few issues. Jump is relatively predictable the rest of the year; eight to ten weeks between new series. I've found most other anthologies are much more unpredictable.

so how is this gonna work? I'm guessing the spot for Waji is going to be filled with something new in issue #1, so I'm assuming one of the current manga will get axed.
it seems like Medaka is the best candidate for now, unless Rilienthal or Hokenshitsu do really bad in the next few weeks.
hmm issue 4 is a bit too early for Neko Wappa to get axed right?

Neko replaces Akaboshi, Asou's series replaces Waji. Yusha Gaku was only about 14 or 15, the new one should be about the same. They won't cancel a third full length series for that. Hunter will fill the void Kagijin is leaving. I could be wrong but I think it will happen like that. I'm also guessing there will not be any new series in issue 1 - 4. HxH will probably last another 10 chapters with the next wave of new series coming when it leaves in March.

Usually in the first issue of each group of 10 it says something like "will continue like this for 10 weeks" or "from this issue will appear for 10 consecutive issues" in the insert texts along with "serialization finally resumed!" and other such things they put in their popular series. You can check the old scanlations or old issue raws if you want.

So, actually Rilienthal is in middle, not top 5. However, it doesn't mean it is safe. Possibly Rilienthal is just having one good week, like Akaboshi. So, if Rilienthal drops back to bottom 5 on next week, it is still in danger.

Rilienthal rose up further to the middle than I was expecting. I thought it might just barely be out of the bottom 5.

Mago is still sticking to high places. I'd love if it kicked Bleach out of that number 2 spot this week while it was at it. I'd have loved to see Toriko a bit higher as well.

It looks like ane doki managed to recover a little bit from its fall last week though it could plummet again next week for all we know.

There is a drama CD coming out in December, so there is a good chance Mago will get one of Jump's next anime. After Tegami Bachi's anime turned out to be such a disaster I am a little skittish. I'd like to see a really good studio attached before I watch. Same goes to Sket, though I have a feeling J.C. Staff will animate which would be fine with me.

However you look at it, Rilienthal had a pretty good third week. I would hate to start comparing it's performance to Akaboshi after three chapters. That is just kind of mean. Rising out of the bottom five after three chapters is pretty good, I think. If it falls back down, to bad, but rebounding this early is still pretty impressive. I'm curious about chapter three now :tem

Agree with you kaiten, the anime is a disaster. Although I think it's not entirely studio pierrot's fault. Tegami Bachi's style is just hard to transfer into anime. I really hope Mago would get either Sunrise, Bones, Toei Animation, or Production I.G. I especially hope it would be with Bones or I.G., although I know that's impossible. But hey, a man can dream.

Spring 2010 is way too early for a Mago anime. Fall, maybe, but generally receiving an anime in two years is for massive hits. I would guess that Spring 2011 would be more likely for an anime, although I wouldn't rule out a fall debut.

Sket Dance and Toriko are more likely to get anime in 2010, I think.

However, looking at it from an anime point of view, a school life/slice of life series would generally look more profitable than a battle manga, unless your name is bleach/naruto/one piece. However Mago does have a distinct style, so it is rather close. Toriko should be the first in line for an anime, seeing as it received an OVA already. So it's mainly between Sket and Mago (since they'll both at least have Drama CDs out), as it's very unlikely that they will both be picked in the near future. It'll probably be in Fall 2010, Spring seems too early.

>.< I don't think tankobon sales have anything to do with exactly what time of year and how close to two years a manga needs to be out for it's anime to start. Really, isn't April and October only six months. Someone at a studio probably isn't using sales as a deciding factor as to something as petty as to weather to start Mago 2 years and 1 months after it's manga debut or 2 years and 7 months. They would be more concerned with if beginning production in time to debut a new series in the spring would interfere with work on another series, if an animation team is ready to begin work, etc. If tankobon sales had anything to do with an anime being licensed small magazine series like K - On! would not be adapted and really big series like Kimi ni Todoke wouldn't go three years without adaption (yes, Kimi is bigger than anything in Jump except the big three and HxH). The studios license series based on what they want to work on and feel is a marketable property, weather the manga itself is popular or not.

To-Love-Ru was an ecchi series, meaning it had a built in audience already. As for Neuro, it received an anime in October, during a period where there were almost no Jump series available to animate. Mago has come at a point where Jump has actually had some bigger successes. I don't think it will get an anime until 2011.

Mago may be bigger than Sket Dance, but Sket Dance has a few things going for it. It's been running longer (meaning there is more material to animate), and it also is a style of series that tends to be popular in anime.

Toriko is both bigger than Mago, and it's a series with a better chance of being a hit as an anime.

November 11, 2009, 05:31 PM
Not to forget that Toriko already has an anime special. The last Shueisha series to get an anime special got an anime tv series the next year. (Meaning Letter Bee).

Toriko is most likely the next one to get animated, although my choice goes out to Sket Dance.
Mainly because I want to see things after the scans stopped and since it's a great series with more to animate.

Toriko would get uptodate rather quickly, leading to fillers which will make the anime's quality drop for a lot of people (not me, I don't mind fillers).

They could of course, make smaller seasons. Giving it two 13-ep seasons a year. Or just one 26-ep per year.

Which means the quality will be better too, since ongoing anime's (for example the top three, Gintama, Reborn and such) have lower budgets per episode. And other series have a higher budget making the animation and such better (most of the times).

I have no doubt that all three will have an anime next year. Sket and Toriko's case has been stated. With Mago, seeing how it's at it's biggest arc and the fact that it's popularity right now is at it's highest, next year would be the best time to animated Mago.

The mistake you're making is that you're comparing different time periods. Of course that's easier with manga, but with anime it's a whole different ballpark. In 2006-2007, there were way more anime debuting than any other time in the decade and because of recent economic issues and the stabilization of torrenting/fansubbing, anime is much less profitable, so there are less series coming out. So you can't compare anime now to anime in the past, too much has happened to change the whole field. I so think it's unlikely for three Jump series to debut in the same season. It may have passed in 2006-2007, but not anymore. But I agree with Kaiten, when they will come out seems to be up for debate which is ultimately a moot point, because we know that they may all be animated eventually.

Eyeshield 21 anime, despite sucking so much is also successful.Slice of life series are actually not that successful in term of rating compare to battle mangas. Slice of life unless it's a long runner like Doraemon, Sazae-san, Chibi Maruko, are hardly that successful. Anime profits from rating and merchandise, from what i see from rating result and DVD sales, it's actually quite constant. If Mago is to be animated in 2011, it means at that time it will passed 150 chapters, which is very unlikely. Successful battle manga in Jump are usually animated before they reached 100 or reached around 101+, but never that long.

Most of those animes started around 125 chapters. If Toriko gets an anime next year it would be around there, too.

And it could have filler arcs, really. And they would fit in fine.
But when a TV anime gets made isn't clear really. Could be a year after next or something, too. But it definitely does well enough to get one.
Mago may, too.

Successful battle manga in Jump are usually animated before they reached 100 or reached around 101+, but never that long.

Anime don't profit from ratings at all. Unlike many other countries, in Japan the studios actually pay the networks to air the shows. Ratings don't affect the actual profit in any way. They tend to result in larger exposure, which correlates with better DVD sales and merchandise sales, but ratings themselves don't result in profit.

Anime studios make the biggest portion of their money from DVD sales (why do you think anime DVDs are so ridiculously overpriced). Merchandise is also a big profit maker, but in the case of a show adapted from a manga, I would guess that the original license holder (in Jump's case, Shueisa) would get the majority of the profit.

Battle manga tend to be very popular and result in lots of toys and video games and the like. While slice of life series aren't as popular with kids, they pander to more of an otaku audience, and generally get better DVD sales. They also sell more in the way of otaku type merchandise (PVC figures and things like that).

As far as your latter point, Naruto took three years to get animated. Would you consider that a 'successful battle manga'? It was closing on 150 chapters when the anime started. Bleach actually took over 3 years (manga started in August of 2001, Anime started in October of 2004).

Unless another series surprises us (or Ane Doki pulls what Hatsukoi did in "it was meant to be short from the start"), the only real guarantee of the year serieswise seems to be Beezlebub (and even that's rather volatile as of late). Kuroko will make a year at this point but it's hard to say if it will survive through 2010 and some of the newer series are still too early to really say...the rest will probably eventually fade away into the annals of history.

To me, Psyren got the best developed storyline among all mangas in Jump. It is the one that really surprises me every week, even more than old series like Naruto or One Piece, or new series like Bakuman or Beelzebub. It's a perfect shonen manga:
1) it has its own subject (OP: pirates, Naruto: ninjas, Bleach: shinigamis, Psyren: psychichers, simple and clear. It is not a common school life manga, for example)
2) an original, strong storyline (saving the world through time travels)
3) there is plenty of bad-ass characters (Miroku :p)
4) it's exciting, the most important point.

Obviously it's my personal point of view, if I were the chief editor I'd treat Psyren like Kuroko!

Jump had experieced both rise and downfall in 90s. So, I want to know how everyone thought about overall for Jump in 2000s.

And, I want to know everyone's recommendation for Jump on upcoming 2010s.

To me, Psyren got the best developed storyline among all mangas in Jump. It is the one that really surprises me every week, even more than old series like Naruto or One Piece, or new series like Bakuman or Beelzebub. It's a perfect shonen manga:
oh, Psyren is a great manga. I love it, but I'm wondering about its current chance of survival to last another year....

isn't it a bit too early for "farewell 2000's"? its only November ;)....

anyway, I'm not too familiar with manga before 1990s, so I don't know too much about the past, but I think 2000s was pretty good.
Death Note was probably the most notable(although I don't like it that much personally), along with others like Bleach.
for romance/ecchi there were Ichigo100% and TLR, and sports, there were Prince of Tennis and ES21.
its interesting how there's lot of success on first half, while the second half was a bit lagging.
I would like to think artwork in 1990s are pretty different from ones in 2000s in style, but its probably just me.
Bakuman, Ichigo 100%, and Double Arts are my favorites among 2000s for me.

'90s was dominated by Dragonball and Slam Dunk. Now we have One Piece, Naruto, Bleach, and a whole bunch of series which are already ended. 2000 era was good in my opininon. I hope 2010 era will be dominated by One Piece and Toriko.

ruggia: Next issue will be #52 which is the last issue for 2009. (Ok there will be a #53 but thats different.) So era 2000 is pretty much ended by now.

To tell the truth, its sort of hard to say that DB was a true 90s series...sure it had it's biggest popularity in that decade but it started in the 80s and was at it's creative peak in that decade. Slam Dunk I can't really argue with but considering how many amazing and important Jump series came out of the 90s (YYH, Ninku, Nube, Kenshin, Houshin Engi, Masaru-kun, I''s, YGO, even OP, HxH and Naruto if you think about it), it wasn't just those two.

As for this ending decade...I think the biggest problem that we're going to have is that essentially it will be known for four series: the "big 3" (OP & Naruto, which both came from the 90s but found themselves in this decade now ending in Jump...and Bleach, which actually is from this decade) and Death Note. Some of what they've provided in this now-ending decade is important but somehow it just is going to obscure what else we got out of the 2000s Jumpwise. From brilliant genre-defying comedies (Jaguar, Bo-bobo, Gintama, Sket Dance) to some new takes on the Jump of lore (Reborn, Black Cat, Buso Renkin, Toriko); from some great sports action (Mr. Full Swing, ES21) to weird new directions in shonen (D.Gray-man, Psyren, Neuro, Muhyo, Bakuman) and even an ecchi here or there (Ichigo 100%, To-Love), it was for the most part a diverse and interesting decade. I just worry for the most part that all people will remember are four series...

Sounds very plausible to me, but as always you need to wait and see how these things play out.

Issue 53 isn't an especially obvious guess (even with Mago's recent popularity), so if they're right on that, I think there's a decent chance at least some of it is true.

That would sound about right.

On the 5-6 thing, I could see that happening just because this is Togashi we're talking about, and whatever your opinion on him might be Jump has shown they're more than willing to make exceptions for him.

Interesting rumor. It doesn't have Komi returning, which is always the #1 sign of a completely fake rumor, so it's possible. I'd like to see the Eyeshield duo return again.

Having another round of cuts so soon would be rather odd, though.


Christmas double Jump and New Year double jump, cover it's always Every series on cover. so #05-06 too, there is Every series on cover. so...fake ?

That post seems false. As Heiji said, doubles are usually group covers with OP getting lead color. Sometimes HxH gets the cover for return, sometime not. I at least expect center color. What really bugs me is this is the first time in two years spoilers for six straight cover/color has come out at once. As a longtime member of the LJ and this thread my bullshit detector is going off. Almost definitely a fake.

Not saying I believe the rumor (covers to many issues to be true imo), but Issue 37/38 of 2004 featured just Naruto on the cover and 3/4 of 2003 was just Eyeshield 21, so it's not out of the realm of possibility.

Sales are not something you rank. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,9,10. That is not how business works. Gag always sells less. It just does. There is less demand. The publishers understand this. Shueisha probably does not even compare one series sales to the next. As long as a series is profitable enough it does not matter if it sells 40,000 copies or 1,000,000. Oricon rankings are something fun for the readers, until we can tell if Shueisha is making money off a series the rankings are easily misleading or taken out of context.

Can everyone please remember the cancellations are just rumors and most likely false ones. Inumaru and Medaka Box have not been canceled, most likely will not be canceled. Putting to much thought into it is probably a waste of every ones time. The bottom five will probably be out in a few hours with confirmation.

Medaka finally escapes the bottom 5 again. \o/ Last time was in Issue 46. If this can mark a turning point I'll be happy. Especially since this is also going to be right before the plot comes up.

Ane-doki dropped to the bottom this time though and Hokenshitsu seems to be crashing down now too. Rilienthal seems to have come down as well. I'm wondering if it can rise again.

A bad week for Beelzebub(I want to check which chapter this was) and Bakuman fluctuates again.

I'm down for OP's special chapter and Mago color. I'm interested in Mago's announcement as well.

Wow, Medaka escapes for a week. With two mid tier series dropping it could be back down next week. Bakuman and Beelze will most likely rise next week. Chapter 19 of Ane Doki gave me this ending soon feeling, it wouldn't surprise me if it is the next out. No mention of Inumaru or Medaka ending, I'm assuming the earlier post was fake. It would not surprise me if Mago is getting an anime announcement. April anime would have to begin production now to be ready to air.

And Mago's announcement...it's not really that early for an anime if you ask me so I think this could actually be the big one for Rikuo and the youkai.

Hatsukoi wasn't a natural end. Kawashita already stated in one of the volumes that she was canceled. The anime adaption most likely happened because it was Kawashita and her name has some weight behind it. Same with Watsuki and Buso Renkin.

That's why I put natural in quotations. I meant that strictly speaking, the plot wasn't rushed as many abrupt endings are. That, plus the fact that it was Kawashita, probably lent itself to it getting an anime.

I kind of feel like Psyren could be the next Mx0; popular enough to stay in the magazine a few years but gets lost in the shuffle when it comes time to get an anime. Of course it could be treated like Houshin Engi, Neuro, and ToRa; a 24 episode anime. 100 episodes is out of the question.

While any talk of Mago getting an anime (talk I think I started >.<) may be premature, it will hit it's two year anniversary a month before the April season and have just about the perfect chapter count. I'm surprised there hasn't been a Sket Dance announcement yet. I would be surprised if it didn't get a spring anime as well.

I'd say that if it doesn't get an anime by that point, Psyren will be less like Mx0 and more like Muhyo...though from how I've heard that had gone, Muhyo sort of felt like one of the few series that actually lasted a while, did what it did and still didn't get an anime. They happen but in modern Jump, that's less likely so.

In regards to a potential Mago anime: don't forget that just because one may exist doesn't mean that it will be a OP/Naruto/Bleach. Sure it could last a half-year or even a year, but only if it becomes a big hit (well big enough to matter) will we have to worry about fillers and such. Besides, 2 years in a manga run is probably long enough to start thinking about these sorts of things...and compared to Sket and Psyren (which are a bit older than it is), Mago probably has the better chance of becoming animated at this point due to it's developed base and it's potential. (maybe not as massive as, say, Toriko, but still big enough to be significant if an "announcement" is coming)

Mago and Toriko give me the Gintama/DGM/Reborn vibe; they will give it the full 52 episodes plus the possibility of renewal. I don't think any series is handed 100 episodes but is renewed on a yearly basis, could be wrong though.

Reborn will be turning six right before Toriko turns two. Not a fair comparison. It, along with Gintama, has had the time to have 100+ episode anime, light novel adaptions, toys and everything else that can promote a series. Massive may be a strong word but it is very clear that at some point Toriko was viewed as the most likely to be a hit by Shueisha. Most likely that was based on Toriko, once upon a time out preforming Mago in the TOC. That clearly isn't the case anymore with Mago now getting as much color as Toriko did.

Agreed. Muhyo and Neuro are more apt comparisons. In my opinion Iwashiro will have at least all of 2010 to finish his story, continuing beyond that also seems reasonable to expect. He also has one thing going for him few young mangaka have: his assistants get serialized, the first already has a hit.

I'm skeptical about another new series starting. Two series in November, Hunter x Hunter returning in January, which will only have two issues this year. That seems enough for now.

This is One Piece's first time getting back to #1 in 2 months or so. I'm actually happy about it getting its own month. It would have been good if another series outside of the Big 3 got it but I don't mind them giving it to the only one among the 3 that is still worth a damn.

Huh, Medaka was actually the highest its been since its earlier chapters. Good week for it considering its ranking last week.

Psyren had one one of it's best ranking, good for them. Medaka will just drop back down again next week, just wait and see and Ane Dokî will get out of the bottem 5 just like Bakuman.

I really liked Neko Wappa as an addition to WSJ. Last time it was a dog (Rilienthal) so they add a cat theme this time. Smart choice! :tem

3 weeks of Oda coloring will be great. :woo

i hope Psyren manages to get a color page for once.

Medaka wan't a huge improvement, but it managed to be in 10th place :D

I'm interested in the oneshot since I liked Zan (read it a few weeks ago). I hope someone scans it.

It looks like Jump is promoting some old series; Reborn first, then Gintama, then One Piece. I'm going to wonder if they going to promote old series again on Januray.

Also, did Sket Dance also started a popularity poll? I think it should be a time to get result by now.

Good to see Psyren go top 5 even if it deserved it more six months ago than it does now :p Still, a good series, always glad to see it do well! I'm disappointed Mago dropped to the middle, life will move on I guess. I'm less shocked that OP gets the month of color, rather I'm surprised Oda is willing to do that much at once. He usually only seems to do 4 or 5 a year.

I got back from NYC and the first thing I get to see is that Psyren has a top 3 place: I call that, sweet and smooth :D Iirc, the rated chapter is the one where Grana and Miroku meet each other in the future (or am I wrong?)

I'm kind of sad Psyren yet to have any project going on.

Sket Dance and Nurarihyon got drama cd, novelization, and advertised on Jump Bang; Toriko got OVA for Jump Tour; Bakuman and Inumaru got vomic; even Kuroko and Beelzebub also advertised on Jump Bang. Compared to these series, Psyren has nothing. I hope Psyren will get something soon.

Psyren hasn't gotten anything because it hasn't done as well as those other series in general.
But maybe Jump will start pushing Psyren if it's gotten third place after usually being more like 10th-15th...
Toriko's in first, so I'm glad about that.

Even with the cover they put Gintama kinda low, but I suppose when something has the cover even without the opening cover, its rank is sorta unfixed.
And I dunno how Kuroko always gets so high, but no one's scanlating it so how could I... I'm not reading raws for a series as complex as that...

Neko Wappa and Kanata Seven Change are still unranked, but Jaguar has a color page, both shifting things up and down.
Plus Bleach is absent, so it makes the magazine ranking kinda weird.

well, this week's Kuroko's ranked chapter (ch 39 i think) had a color page + introduced a new super-powered rival + showed a new female character. so maybe thats why....

Somehow at this point, I think that even with Psyren's sudden jump into third, the only way that it probably will get more respect in the TOC is if it can do so more often. I mean it isn't really a cellar-dweller anymore and may finally be catching on, but that won't really get it the notice that some of the other '08 series are getting (particularly Toriko and Mago, which are both essentially bee-lining to anime at this point).

Seeing OP getting first again after essentially forever brough a smile to my face for sure. Other than that, it's a really confusing TOC (made even more so with Gintama's end of month cover and Bleach being off, taking them essentially out of contention)

really? correct me if I'm wrong, but Kuroko's upcoming chapter is 47, right?
the ToC are based on 8 chapters before, since ToC for first 8 weeks are pre-determined, so that means ToC that comes out on chapter 9 is showing ranks of chap 1 right?
So isn't this ToC showing chap 39? (47-8=39) or am I missing something....

Outstanding!! Best new series since Beelze. I love the old school feel and art; reminds me of early Toriyama, Dr. Slump and Dragonball. The action scenes worked perfectly, Tama is a great lead, all around great new series!

So uh...theoretically speaking, if someone....(not naming names) were interested in Translating Neko Wappa, (interested, but not sure.) Should said person start from chapter one? Or should this person (again not naming names) start with the second one?

One piece color month is bitchin' though. (Whining) Why couldn't Gintama get a 'true' month though? It seems to me that they 'celebrated' in name only....

I'd watch a Mago anime though. (And that's saying a lot, as I'm pretty picky nowadays. I think the only shows I watch are Gintama and the new DTB.) I sort of echo what some others are saying, that Psyren deserves a bit more love.

If, in theory, said person were interested in translating a certain series this theoretical person should PM a certain mod who would kill to scanlate that series. He has his own thoughts on chapter 1 but hesitates to post them publicly. ;)

I'd guess it ultimately comes down to the manga-ka for these dedicated months. Amano was obviously more willing to put colors/cover art out than Sorachi.

And if I'm not mistaken, Psyren's ranking is based on chapter 88 which was Ageha's Dad being revealed and the return of Matsuri.

In all fairness, it's catching up, one series at a time. And it can hardly be blamed for handing out trading cards when that's what the audience wants. If Toriko and Bakuman do end up in the magazine next year, then it'll be another step in making it more like WSJ, except for a... slightly younger audience?

WSJ isn't profitable on its own, is it? I thought Shueisha actually lost money on it - it regained the money through tank sales. All things considered, while the English version could be a *little* thicker (IMO), I'd say it's a pretty decent overseas version for a far smaller and slightly younger audience. And they're making improvements, too.

Though I kind of miss the days when you'd hear about older or more unusual series. Oh well.

Kaiten
November 19, 2009, 08:26 AM
^That is right. Manga magazines are either loss leaders or make a very small profit. There is a reason they are black and white and printed on shit paper. Publishers, no matter what country, lose money when there product is sold at newsstands. For most magazines profit is generated by subscriptions, For manga they make it up in tankobon sales. From what I understand, and this could be wrong, manga anthologies only get a limited number of subscribers.

The US Shonen Jump is monthly - the series running are Naruto, OP, Bleah, Tegami Bachi (from Jump SQ), Ultimo (also from SQ), YuYuHakusho (about to end), and Yu-Gi-Oh GX, IIRC. Naruto is close to being up-to-date, Bleach is a fair ways in, and they're going to have OP catch up soon.

If you mean WSJ, the Japanese one, well... =P

To add to what Kaiten.Sama said:



Targeted towards young adult males, the first issue required three printings to meet consumer demand, with over 300,000 copies sold. It was awarded the ICv2 "Comic Product of the Year" award in December 2002, and has continued to enjoy high sales with a monthly circulation of 215,000 in 2008. Approximately half of its circulation comes from subscriptions rather than store sales.

So SJ might get some of its profit from subscriptions, too...?

Kaiten
November 19, 2009, 07:02 PM
I guess subscriptions account for a lot of U.S. Shonen Jump's profits. Shojo Beat was canceled for lack of, even though Shojo Beat graphic novels are among VIZ's highest sellers.

Yu-Gi-Oh GX also made it's final appearance in the magazine in January's issue. It will be continued in volume releases.

I still remember reading a chapter of Yu-Gi-Oh in one of the 2003 magazines and being shocked that the word "ass" was in there...

I'd say DGM wouldn't be in the magazine for other reasons besides death and other violent stuff (religious connotations, anyone?). Since Bleach was brought back, I could see Reborn or Gintama coming in at a later point - or maybe Claymore? Claymore had a preview. If they're cutting GX, maybe the editors want the audience to grow up a little.

So do Neko and Kanata seem like series the Japanese public would enjoy? Not that we can tell just yet, but comments *here* seem positive... It'd be disappointing for another good series to be cancelled early.

Yeah Shonen Jump used to say everything short of "shit" and "fuck". But they won't put Claymore in the magazine besides the preview, its just too violent. Reborn is doubtful because they didn't even run a preview to begin with, though it may be more popular than I imagine it is here. Gintama is a possibility. It was really well received when the first preview was ran and during the time it ran in the magazine.

It's an interesting question. Most of the series which have defined Jump in this decade were actually late 90s series (One Piece, Hunter x Hunter, Naruto and Prince of Tennis).

Of the series which started in this decade, I definitely rank D.Gray-man first, followed by Eyeshield 21 and Reborn. Death Note had great potential until it had the worst ending in the history of all fictional works. Bleach is mindless, but it can be fun. I was fond of Mx0 while it was around, and I think Kuroko is off to a promising start. That makes 7. I can't really think of any other series that I've read enough of and liked enough to include in a Top 10 list for this decade.

Most interesting: One Piece
Tearjerker: One Piece
Character: Hibari
Gag Manga: Jaguar
Battle manga: One Piece
Team: Oga and Be'el

I would've really liked more options on #3, Hibari and Gin were the only ones I even like at all in the first place and they're still only vague interest at best.
