I also enjoyed Hi-Fi Cluster. The premise is pretty interesting and both protagonsists are alright though I'm not really sure how good it's chances of survival are. I think it'll probably do better...

I know one of the recent Super Sentai shows also doesn't have a ED and it's happened to some other shows that have aired on there recently. Toei's shows on other networks like TV Tokyo still have ED...

It's because of the timeslot sadly. TV Asahi shows seem to have abandoned ED songs for some reason

I enjoyed the first chapter of Stealth Symphony a lot as well. First chapter did everything I felt it needed to and the ending implies it could go in a bit of an atypical direction for a JUMP series....

I think the OVA will likely cover the one shot and volume 1 of the manga so it'll probably be out before the TV series or out at roughly the same time
February 04, 2014 04:02 PM
Eh not so sure. I think World Trigger will likely continue to gradually get better numbers but it's probably not going to be cracking 100K for a while longer. Soul Catchers will probably improve a...

So did Cupid finish this week or not?
January 17, 2014 10:31 PM
My memory's kinda fuzzy but I'm pretty sure the second season of Nura's anime was still running when the rankings had started going down. Obviously they weren't gonna axe while the anime was still...

I wish Daisuke-sensei a speedy and full recovery though I am pretty worried about how much it'll affect World Trigger's standing. Considering the series is just now starting to get off the ground in...

I agree JUMP's doing well in terms of hits and certainly much better than they were doing for the last few years. When I was talking about other the other mags having the breakway success though I...

I can agree their not "desperate" per se, but give that two of their biggest sellers (Naruto and Bleach) are on their way out the door, it's kind of understandable they'd want some kind of solid...

As far as this whole Iron Knight debate goes I don't think that JUMP was necessairly looking for a "Attack on Titan killer" since the very notion of that seems kind of ridiculous but I do think they...
December 11, 2013 06:13 PM
If JUMP was trying to make it into a long runner (and since it's an action series with not a lot of violence, I imagine they probably would). I think they'd want to gauge the sales a bit more (plus...
December 11, 2013 07:23 AM
Soma getting an anime is somewhat plausible but since JUMP is...JUMP I can't imagine they'd intentionally plan to do a short TV adaption for something that sells so well for them so it would be more...

JUMP's sponsering a MAD contest for World Trigger and Souma. Winners get signed copies of every volume till they end.
Pretty good promotion idea and it'll probably help the volume sales for WT...
December 04, 2013 09:48 PM
No it's the physical volumes. I can agree Amazon isn't a perfect measure to check this stuff by though
December 04, 2013 07:27 PM
December 04, 2013 06:47 PM
Vol 1 and 2 are in the top 150 right now.
December 04, 2013 06:37 PM
Well vol 3 looks like it's doing pretty well on Amazon at the moment and vols 1 and 2 seem to have shot up a bit as well. It's possible all 3 may show up next week.
November 24, 2013 11:29 PM
Yeah I think it should be obvious why JUMP would want to promote WT that way. It's pretty much the ONLY somewhat succesful (so far at least) battle manga they've had since Toriko (unless you would...
November 19, 2013 05:13 PM
I don't get how being too "mature" would ever be an issue when this is the same mag that ran friggin Death Note of all things, and that series felt WAY more like a seinen than a shonen series. DGM...
November 19, 2013 07:50 AM
Was hoping the new series would be by a more established author (and that we'd be getting more than one) but I guess the fact that it was a JUMP VS contender is promising enough. Hopefully it turns...
October 21, 2013 10:16 AM
Speaking of WT, shouldn't it be getting a VOMIC soon? Sure it's not a high seller, but this is around the period where a series would be getting one regardless of how it's actually doing
October 15, 2013 06:53 AM
Glad to see World Trigger ranked high(and Souma isn't really ranked low enough for there to be any real reason to worry anyway) and it makes me feel more confident about it's odds of survival. Maybe...
September 30, 2013 01:47 PM
I'm listening to the newest english SJ Podcast and they hinted at several new series being added so Cupid and Souma could be coming alongside Owari no Seraph.
September 23, 2013 01:14 PM
Listening to the Shonen Jump podcast and apparently they've decided on the new series for ESJ and it'll be announced next week. From the sound of things it's not Hachi though
September 10, 2013 07:03 AM
Interesting TOC this week. Was kind of hoping Bleach was really towards the bottom but at least most of what I care about is above it minus Nisekoi. Also nice to see World Trigger ranked 6th. The...

September 09, 2013 07:44 AM
Souma came out before World Trigger so WT would be the latest actually.
September 07, 2013 08:07 PM
People always like to think that since the second half is generally regarded as inferior but seriously thinking about it, I don;t really think so: For the ending to the series to be as effective as...
September 06, 2013 12:10 PM
Medaka and Mago's endings were perfectly fine. Also no real issues with the way DN and Bakuman ended. Every other JUMP manga on the other hand...yeah...
September 05, 2013 04:14 PM
Curious but has Hachi's genre been mentioned yet? Since the author's last two works were action horror I assume this will be too.
September 03, 2013 12:22 PM
If the new series ends up being legit I wonder if Viz'll add it to english WSJ. It's from an author who's at least sort of established so there's not as much risk involved.
