Agree, it's gotta be interesting. If it does its own thing instead of trying to chase Kuroko or HQ's audience its chances greatly improve.

I'm not making presumptions about the quality of the chapter at all. I'm just saying what it needs to do to succeed. There are only so many slots on a ballot and unless it can can show sports fans...

I don't think it's likely that TWB succeeds. It's competing directly with Kuroko and Haikyuu for votes, it'll have to really distinguish itself to be noticed.

Congratulations to Beelzebub on a nice, long run. It was one of my favorite series in Jump for a long time. Always able to make me laugh, with brisk action mixed in too. I wonder what character the...

That is interesting. Nura went overboard with the tones at times, I think a cleaner look would benefit his style a lot.

Or prequel. Set in the sengoku era.
February 05, 2014 04:11 PM
It's definitely a creepy premise.

A lot of young and growing titles this month, tomorrow should be educational.

Congrats to Koe no Katachi for its good sales. Magi is a real monster.
January 29, 2014 02:08 PM
Stealth Symphony sounds and looks the most interesting to me. I'm interested in Illegal Rare, Shiibashi had some nice art, good action (and cute girls) in Nura but the story really didn't hook me. I...

Magi was slow to catch on. I get the feeling it would have been cancelled, considering how crowded with battle manga Jump's lineup was at the time. NNT is a really Magazine-esque series, I don't know...

In case anyone's interested, sales for tenth volumes of Jump series. A special milestone. :) These figures only account for a volume's run in the top 30, as we don't have 50 places on some of the...

Epic's Akira was colorized as well. Certainly blasphemous, but this was probably its biggest impact on the US comic industry; its digital colors utilized young technology in a beautiful,...

Gintama's sales have fallen a lot over the past couple years.
December 21, 2013 01:54 PM
This looks right up my alley.

I would rather see Akatsuki work with a different writer next time.

For the time being, Haikyuu is outpacing Kuroko. Kuroko was selling 130-150k at this point, while Haikyuu is already selling 200+.

Beautiful facial expressions. The art has sort of a 90s or Takashi Shiina flavor, very stylish. Would like to see him get a series.
September 26, 2013 12:16 AM
I would too. Sket Dance's long anime actually premiered the same season as Toriko, so it's a tie. Spring 2011, what a long time ago!
I don't think they'd give Shokugeki a long series unless they...

Thanks for this, I was trying to find it not too long ago and had no luck. It's interesting to see Bleach nearly in the middle, I would not have guessed it.
September 22, 2013 02:17 PM
Congrats to HQ. I guess it no longer really matters how young a manga is, with the multiple season format becoming more and more common.
September 11, 2013 08:18 PM
It's too bad PSI's sales aren't lining up with its polling. It's reminding me a lot of Jaguar right now. Trigger is on the charts, but it's too low to tell us much. Vol. 3's sales will give us a good...

Generally, stories in serial format spend their entire existence trying to avoid ending so that's why the endings are awful and rushed more often than not. In this format, the ending is not seen as a...
February 14, 2013 10:14 PM
It is definitely surprising to me. When 67 left the chart it had sold almost 200,000 less than 66, as well. I'm guessing it's not so much that OP is losing fans but that the buzz from the huge boom...

It's silly to think the TOC has ever been a 100% perfect reflection of the reader poll results. It's mostly accurate but in the end the editors get the final say on what goes where. When it comes to...

I read the first volume recently, really hope more gets scanned, it was very interesting.
December 05, 2012 12:53 AM
The sales drop year over year is surprising. Piracy? It's kind of funny to see Sket Dance selling almost as much as Bleach.
