Tegami Bachi is one of Jump SQ best titles now. It sells about 100,000 volumes in 2 weeks. I would say right behind Shin PoT, Claymore, and DGM in terms of sales. The anime is also selling well, it's not a surprise to me since the current anime is very slow with the canon material and added lots of fillers. A 2nd season can fill all the holes in the story.

Prince of Tennis having color pages and being on the cover makes me happy. It's been too long since the last set of color pages for the series.
Yay, another Tegami Bachi season! I really like the first season, even if it has shoddy CGI and is pretty slow at times.
I hope D.Gray-Man's current status as one of Jump SQ's frontrunners helps its chances at another season. To this day, I am still bothered with how they ended the Anime. They could have done it Inuyasha style, ending with at least something resolved, but instead they ended it right when a bunch of new information was revealed.
I'm kind of surprised there are lots of animated adaptation for Jump Square series this year; Tegami bachi going to have its 2nd season, Mayoi Neko's anime adaptation going to aired at April, Shiki's anime adaptation going to aired at July, and Kure-nai's OVA going to release at July, too.
Kure-nai and Mayoi Neko don't really count. Both are light novels published by Shueisha. The manga are tie ins to promote the upcoming anime. Kind of the way Haruhi Suzumiya is not a Shonen Ace anime and Toradora is not a Dengeki Daioh anime. The anime of Kure-nai follows the novels plot, nothing from the manga was animated. At least in the first season.

A one-shot from 2000 is getting serialized ?
Mayoi Neko taking the cover in June. I look forward to that. As well as the color this issue since I like Yabuki's art in general. I am hoping Dr. Rurru will deliver as well.
Serializing a one shot from 10 years ago and that was in WSJ? This is going to set an interesting precedent.
No Shin Prince of Garbage in the June issue is a pleasure to see.
Prince of Tennis absent next month? That's going to be a painful two months to sit around waiting for the next chapters.
Yay, D.Gray-man color pages next month. Those are always great to have!
