Nurarihyon no Mago is the only other successful hit. Of the eight GFCs held from 2004 to 2012, we've had only those two emerge as successful hits.
That's not even counting the series that didn't...
November 27, 2013 03:25 PM
The manga's been known to do exactly that: the more serious the storyline is, the lower its ranking on the ToC.
I'm not confident it's going to get much less serious from here on out.
November 26, 2013 12:13 PM
We got Ryōta Ōsaka as Osamu Mikumo and Junko Minagawa as Yūma Kuga.
November 25, 2013 10:21 PM
Is it just me, or did Shimabukuro repeat himself, about going to the art store?
November 22, 2013 11:26 PM
Well, I took a peek at this chapter. Good god.
Unless you normally peek at raw chapters, I highly recommend you do NOT read my commentary below. This is your last chance.
I know I've become...
November 20, 2013 10:07 AM
I knew that early spoiler was too good to be true, but cancelling two series at once AND introducing only one makes this cancellation round even weirder.
Though there have been numerous cases of...
November 17, 2013 07:13 PM
Aren't the producers of the show aware that Hachi and Cupid are already on the brink of cancellation? So why do they bother promoting them? Why not just dedicate the entire show to Isobe alone,...
November 16, 2013 07:18 PM
Well, if Naruto is the only series that has a chance of ending next year, that only frees up one slot at most for series in 2014 to fight for.
November 16, 2013 06:56 PM
Now that you mention that, I have to agree. There really is no room left for new series to get popular, let alone survive over 20 chapters.
Looking at all the stable series at WSJ we have at the...
November 14, 2013 05:01 PM
On top of that, the manga's already ended a year ago already. There's virtually no potential for any anime staff to bring back a finished series.
The only series I can think of that got an anime...

Glad to see World Trigger slowly making its way up. Here at Weekly Shonen Jump, for once, it feels like slow and steady CAN win the race after all. It also seems like Soul Catcher(s) is joining World...
November 12, 2013 05:49 PM
It'd definitely be awkward for an author without enough prestige to participate in an event like this. If even authors of medium-sized hits aren't on the list, including Furudate (Haikyu), Tamura...
November 10, 2013 02:37 PM
Wait, I actually misread the two oneshots as new serializations... oops... but still, two highly-renowned authors coming back at the same time with oneshots just doesn't seem realistic.
November 10, 2013 02:22 PM
Well, compared to the last several cancellations rounds, it's missing two types of mangaka:
1. New authors, especially in the face of all the new oneshots that have been appearing on the magazine....
November 10, 2013 02:08 PM
Aww, come on, man! That's got to be fakest serialization round I've ever seen! Whoever came up with this list really sucks at faking spoilers.
That's WAY too many higher-profile authors at once,...
November 05, 2013 10:56 PM
The magazine is already one of the most open and welcoming to newcomers. Unfortunately, there's a business to run, and there's a little something in economics known as scarcity. That is, there's only...
November 05, 2013 06:02 PM
Not necessarily. We still have a oneshot each week in the magazine that HxH can simply take over.
Still, a cancellation round is imminent really soon, if not next week.
November 04, 2013 11:03 PM
Chapter 9 is what it's all about: a "challenge" between cooks with a form of "compensation" for the loser to offer.
Hmm... that sure helped a lot, didn't it? Maybe they should've just written it...
November 04, 2013 10:41 PM
To be fair, how would you translate 食戟 into English? I guess they could try to retain the original pronunciation shokugeki, but then that'd make it sound like a board game.
It's the same problem...
November 02, 2013 03:20 AM
This is the kind of question I've been meaning to answer for quite awhile.
Am I the only one who wants to see Kenji Sakaki return? I've waited since the start of Nisekoi (the series that replaced...
October 29, 2013 01:25 AM
No. It doesn't say anything for Soul Catcher(s).
Here's a tip: Look for the expression "Cカーラ" in the starred headline next to the manga titles. Beel, Haikyu, and the oneshot TOTEM have it, but...
October 29, 2013 12:56 AM
I hope that Beelzebub's absence will allow it to recuperate enough to blow readers' minds with a fresh start like Oga did to those bandits in America. :^_^
October 27, 2013 02:59 AM
I don't think Takamiya's supposed to parallel anyone in appearance like Oga, Kunieda and Tojo did with Akahoshi, Iris or Fuji; there's just not an original Ishiyama member with the same relevance as...
October 26, 2013 09:27 AM
Same with Bulge/Barrage. That went well too.
October 23, 2013 11:59 AM
I'm not the least bit surprised of World Trigger's VOMIC. Given WT's performance on the magaine and it's background of oneshots, it was definitely coming.
October 23, 2013 09:45 AM
Who's anyone to say the rankings don't make sense after excluding Kochikame, new series, oneshots and CPs?
All Ryosuke's been doing is following the conventions we've been using all the time. It's...
October 21, 2013 09:52 PM
I guess that concludes the debate then.
October 21, 2013 01:21 AM
Hmm... yeah. Come to think about it, WT and Soma don't redirect back to the shonenjump.com website, while the official AC Twitter does.
Also, why do they both have the word "off" in their...
October 20, 2013 11:18 PM
Yeah, this concept of manga having their own Twitter accounts is pretty new, since Twitter is also pretty new, comparably new to the concept of the VOMIC. Can anyone think of any other series earlier...
October 20, 2013 10:26 PM
I know. I just thought the hashtag and the profile are different things. Like I said, I don't know how Twitter works.
October 20, 2013 10:22 PM
I don't know how Twitter works, but from what I've searched up, everyone's been using "#ワートリ" as the hashtag.
October 18, 2013 01:06 PM
I didn't remember that. Well, I guess you just proved my point further then.
Man, this reminds me of the time I thought Yulia from ST&RS was a guy, even though it was actually clear to everyone...
October 18, 2013 12:14 PM
Actually, I'd say Nagisa from AC is even more ambiguous in gender, and we all know how terribly that went for the series.
October 17, 2013 11:02 PM
No, the guy who made the comment is not me. I don't know if anyone will understand the parallel I'm about to draw with Beelzebub and a popular children's cartoon series, so here it goes:
October 17, 2013 09:27 PM
Wow, somebody actually mentioned Beelzebub and now it's gotten as many thumbs up as the top comment (41) on that Route 66 video!?
October 17, 2013 02:35 PM
Exactly what I was thinking, especially when Oga did his commemorative punch.
October 17, 2013 12:56 PM
Yes, I do know what a flash anime is. I watched the one for Inumarudashi (did you know WSJ has a YouTube account now?) and I've peaked at the one for Kusuo Saiki. I already know it's more the...
October 17, 2013 12:42 PM
I think that grandpa's being WAY too raucous for such an easy-going song. :XD
But the fact that Tamura got permission to use the song (no matter how loosely it relates to the plot) might indicate...
October 16, 2013 09:34 PM
Sure thing. Wouldn't want to go mixing the two again.
October 16, 2013 08:40 PM
Okay. I guess I was exaggerating. Not an unlikely possibility though, given how unprecedentedly popular it's started off already.
October 16, 2013 07:59 PM
Well, so much for thinking IIM was record breaking. It's way beyond that.
Honestly, even before the first chapter gets released, with, of all things, a flash anime that early, it feels like it's...
October 12, 2013 03:40 AM
I'm surprised no one mentioned Soul Catcher(s). It's in the exact same situation as World Trigger, except ever so slightly worse, but like WT, reliant on many cushions to survive despite it also...
October 10, 2013 03:34 PM
Man, this really goes back to what I just mentioned about the absence of mystery manga in WSJ, doesn't it? It really feels like he read my mind.
Also, anyone who's read Neuro will recognize what...
October 10, 2013 11:00 AM
Is this what we call a burn to WSJ? I'd have to side with Fuwa here, actually.
I feel like Matsui just read my mind. Mystery manga have basically fallen off of Jump's radar for awhile, a genre...
October 08, 2013 03:03 PM
Hey, since you seem to know a little about surveys on 2ch, I want to ask: Would you consider the surveys here to be user-run as well?
I was referring to that survey earlier when I mentioned Soul...
October 07, 2013 09:14 AM
On top of that, it looks like its oneshot was just released in issue 26 (May 27) earlier this year, the same issue Smoky B.B. debuted. This was also the oneshot that took One Piece's spot because Oda...
October 06, 2013 06:01 PM
That's exactly what I was thinking. As a genre that's been absent in Jump for quite awhile, it makes me wonder what would happen the moment somebody came back to serialize a horror/mystery manga....
October 06, 2013 04:19 PM
I've been waiting since Enigma ended for the controversial Kenji Sakaki to return. However, if I've read online correctly, the Autumn 2012 issue of Jump NEXT! had a poll, the issue where her later...
September 30, 2013 09:31 AM
Why do I get the feeling it'll be Koi no Cupid that'll be the new serialization?
September 29, 2013 12:13 PM
That reminds me: they already DID play basketball in AC.
Or at least, the girls played it offscreen while we saw the guys play baseball.
