    wow area no kishi has been doing great these last few weeks in the toc,so that's a big + imo!
    hmm and cage of eden still remains iin the middle of the toc which the reason might be the over-use of it's fan-service i would say.

    ***Bows***

    Not only exiles, but none have been serialized in Magazine. I'm very excited about the Urasawa poster, hopefully I've heard of the series he does a poster for. Given his style I'm thinking Devilman/Violence Jack. I'd like to think Naoki - sensei is a big Go Nagai fan. And I honestly have no idea what Inoue's poster is of, looks cool though.

    just read first volume of baby steps (with an S, actually) in chinese.

    its a tennis manga (sports). its actually pretty decent, and I'm surprise it hasn't been scanned yet as its going on 6th volume. but after seeing the rankings, I guess that explains things a bit (been searching my butt off to find raws).

    it's not really about cute girls playing manga, but the art in general is okay. first chaptere is on official site: http://www.shonenmagazine.com/works/...iew/index.html

    quick summary: a perfectionist/model 15 year-old high school student (male) stumbles into the world of tennis because he decided that a once-a-week physical activity is required of a model student (as staying healthy is also an important part of school life - that's his logic anyways).

    there are a few funny moments. aimed towards shonen i guess. but its the usual sports genre scenario of a newbie learning a sport, possibly developing feelings for a girl playing the sport that also happens to be very good at it. because of the main character's already present value system and skills (hard worker, perfectionist, loves to analyze things to the bones).. he's able to slowly excel at tennis* and slowly starts enjoying the rush of making the "perfect move."

    hopefully someone will pick up scanning this soon. for the life of me, i cant even find the raws (i assume it's being scanned by an international group somewhere out there along with other weekly shonen mag)

    *although by the end of volume 1 he still wasn't able to beat a 2nd grader (he's playing at a club that trains students aspiring to be professionals)

    I think Negima is out this week too...business as usual after the celebration week. (though can't wait to see what exactly Urasawa is going to draw)

    Re: Weekly Shounen Magazine (Shounen Mag by Kodansha)

    Nobodies really positive, but it's doubtful Magazine's TOC is a ranking. Every series seems to have a set position only moving a spot or two up or down every week. Fairy Tail and Daiya are always at the beginning. I find it hard to believe that popular series like Negima, Tsubasa, Air Gear, and Bloody Monday are always in the middle or back if this were a popularity contest.

    Pretty even distribution with not too much distance between Fairy and Ippo. A bit surprised that Ahiru is higher than Tsubasa and Air Gear (even Ippo) but it seems legit.

    BTW: what was #1?

    Re: Weekly Shounen Magazine (Shounen Mag by Kodansha)

    Nana was number 1, for the second straight week. Hardly surprising as only One Piece is more popular.

    Magazine's sales are really interesting. There's no "mega" hit, nothing that sells over 300,000 the first week. Jump has seven that sell that or more, with two, maybe three that will be soon. Even Sunday has Conan. But Magazine has this cluster of nine or so (Daiya, Negima, and SZS too) titles that all sell really, with very little separation between them. They'll switch positions too. Ahiru may have out sold it this week but only 15,000 copies are all that separates them. Next volume Tsubasa could be the bigger seller. Next week it could. Unlike Jump there is no clear hierarchy at the top in Magazine.

    This should also show how little the TOC means. We've both commented on this but Tsubasa and Air Gear are always in the middle or bottom, Fairy Tail and Ahiru always in the top five. Kodansha just seems to give series a section of the magazine and shift it a little each issue.
