    So the cancellation round is here. I'm really interested to see which of the "new" series survive. And I'm even more interested to see if Ohba/Obata will really come back so soon.

    Well, nice to see my general estimations just barely make the window. This had remained one of my favorite series in the magazine from day 1. My only real complaint is in an age where the majority of the series now take decompression to pain-inducing levels, Medaka was almost the exact opposite. Nishio loved to compress the ever living crap out of this manga and I feel certain arcs/characters suffered for it. It would have been nice if he had been able to apply the pacing for the Minus and Treasure Hunt arcs to the rest of the series. In spite of that, this will still go down as one of my all-time favorite Jump series.

    So Medaka Box will end? Well, I'll wait for an official announcement to the end just to make sure.

    If so, I'll miss you. Great charismatic characters, interesting concepts, plots the same, really a great manga.

    Apparently it was not canceled but a natural end.

    It has been decided that a volleyball manga will be getting an anime adaption. He is sad that another station got it instead of them.

    Is there even any other volleyball manga that's remotely popular?

    I think he means that most author nowadays stretch most arcs to last very long. I mean for example Bleach (only example I can think of right now), the last arc with the fight in Soul Society lasted more than 30 chapters, that's pretty long for an arc (I think so anyway).

    As for One Piece the Fishmen Island arc lasted around 50+ chapters.

    In the contrary some author, expecially in the beginning or even Medaka where some arcs were really short, like the "Flower Fest" that was the last arc.

    That was like a mini arc. The "last arc" is still going on.

    Now that I see in front of Edison Gintama, Sket and Beel. Damn, that's crazy. Just those who are excellent.

    Exactly, were less than ten chapters

    Naruto, One Piece, Bleach and long running series like that usual have arcs that at bare minimum last around 50 chapters to a 100.

    Never mind that defining what counts as an arc, an overarching plot or whatnot is needlessly complicated. It really doesn't bear thinking about too much. But yes, by any measure of the term Medaka Box is super-compressed, and I think that's always been to its benefit, allowing it to screw around with pacing and ideas more than most long-running jump titles. It'll be missed for that, as well as the brilliant satire.

    i thought that medaka teased a lot of things, like the unequal or the non-hero who despise jump, but never came to fruition somehow. it always felt that it never had a climax for anything, just a new ridiculous element.

Additionally there are 3 Colors before it (Bleach + 2 oneshot) + Kochikame Lead CP. So imo its still doing pretty well, can't really say if its a success or not though.
    That actually makes it 9th out of 17. Not including Bleach, Naruto or Kochikame, there are still seven more series above the bottom 10. Still not that much of a concern, though... right?
