  1. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 5

    I agree that Soul Catcher(s) getting a Twitter account now very probably means it's safe for a while, but don't forget there was already one series canceled last week (Iron Knight) to make room for a...

    [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    I really like the current lineup, it's really solid and diverse. I think it's interesting how, except for the five new series that have started this year, all other fifteen current Jump series are...

    Does someone already know what the new series (Shinkai Tsuzuri no Dokkairoku) is about? Or at least its genre?

    Yeah, that was what I said, I also think it didn't contribute much to the series' sales. Sorry if I wasn't clear in the previous post.

    An author I would like to see again in WSJ is Kawaguchi Yukinori (Hoop Men). Last year he had a oneshot titled Judo Odd... did anyone read it?

    I'd also like a new series by Youichi Amano, not only...

  9. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2013-2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 3

    Yeah, there was only one replacement so the 2014 issues seem to be filling that space with oneshots and extra pages. So I think it's likely that in the next cancellation round we get one more new...
  10. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2013-2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 3

    I took Reborn's end as a natural conclusion, despite the bad rankings in the previous weeks, because I had read somewhere that WSJ manga only got color pages for their last chapters if they had been...

    2013 was an interesting year for this magazine. There were a lot of new series, making it seem like Kodansha wanted to quickly "renew" its lineup. And the editors were very strict with the new series...

    Well, there's Hachi, which had a better position this week but overall also has unimpressive rankings and therefore is a likely option for the next series to be axed unless it keeps improving.
    And...

    But if there is really just one new series, what would be done to fill the "empty space" that would leave in the magazine? Do you think the editors will just add oneshots until there is a second new...
  16. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2013-2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk - Part 3

    I think Kyoukai no Rinne also has a chance because, well, it's by Rumiko Takahashi. And even though it isn't a big hit it manages to at least make it into the Oricon ranking.

  25. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2013-2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    I also think there's no strong reason to doubt that bottom 8... I just hope Hachi's chapter 7 position isn't a bad sign.
  26. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2013-2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    But didn't World Trigger get a color page in that issue?
  27. [Mag Talk] Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2013-2014] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    And, from what I saw in the raw, the chapter at the end of the magazine was only 7 pages long... So I also think there's a strong possibility that this series is like a new Jaguar.
