    Enigma looks promising.
    I won't mind if it's a battle manga, as long as it's done originally. (Not like Metallica, which is just a copy of other popular manga.)
    Even though the characters (designs) look they are taken from other manga, we don't know much about the story yet, so I won't judge it yet until I read this.

    As for the other series... another soccer manga?!
    I... I just... What? Why?!
    This manga had better be really good and original in some way, otherwise I'll start thinking the editors have just stopped caring and serialized some or another manga right out of the blue without even reading it.
    Reaaally curious to see what this manga will be like, and if the Jump staff actually is insanely stupid.

    Judging from the responses, I think I might not have expressed myself properly. I have absolutely no issue with team sports series; I consider Slam Dunk and Cross Game to be in the handful of greatest series of all time. My worry lies solely with developing something of immediate interest to the readers, and properly developing a wide cast of characters takes longer than Jump 2010 seems willing to allow. I was only able to read the first chapter of Shonen Shikku, so I can't comment on how the series progressed, but that first chapter focused only on two players, which just isn't enough for a soccer series. The same problem showcased itself with Meister, another soccer series which also only focused on a few characters, and which was canceled at only 10 chapters. I completely agree that developing characters should be a mangaka's joy, and I also agree that ES21 was great, but the current circumstances don't allow for lengthy character establishment.

    Well, if there's one that I'd like to be come a Jump manga, that would be badminton. I've always been wanting to see a badminton manga from Jump. The manga would also really help the regeneration of my country's players once it gets here. We really need to take back our rightful throne as King of Badminton.

    Lots of people are surprised that another soccer manga going to take over old soccer manga. But it never knows, it possibly be better than Shonen Shikku.

    However, I think Jump needs either mystery, chanbara or romantic comedy manga, too. And I would like to see if some of shoujo mangakas try on Jump, like Clamp for Shonen Magazine and Watase Yuu for Shonen Sunday.

    ^ interesting idea. i would kick a puppy to see a shounen by Yoko Matsushita. Her shoujo is already quite shounen anyway. Kinda like Kuroshitsuji.
    but she must finish Yami no Matsuei first

    Jump definitely needs a mystery/suspense series. Bakuman is sort of channeling Death Note at the moment with all of the dramatic cliffhangers, but there's no mystery element to it.

    Yotsuya tried, but the art fell into the uncanny valley, and it never really caught on with readers.

    After Muhyo and then Neuro, all the mystery had left Jump. I feel like Mago is kinda fitting those placements though.

    But yea, first thing besides a new sport is a mystery/suspense. Gag wouldn't be so bad either, one that lasts longer than Nekko Wappa I guess.

    I've also been saying that jump needs a mistery for a while. A mist of mistery and action like Kuroshitsuji as someone said wouldn't be bad.

    I also concur that a mystery/suspense would be cool. JUMP's version of Bloody Monday would be pretty interesting.

    Yeah a new mystery manga would be be cool or a new great fantasy adventure.
    OMG I hear the sign of many readers.

    Yeah I know the last one was terrible, but I want to read sth from Naoshi again. Or sth diffrent like Bakuman KTM, a new cult manga which cause such a big impact as Death Note.

    Something like Bakuman's "Seigi no Mikata" would be awesome

    I know that, but my point is: It'd be cool to read an unpredictable manga with plot twists all over the place and in a "real world" setting, in a shounen way.

    I'm not talking about the actual Seigi no Mikata manga, but something like that would be nice for a change, and not ANOTHER soccer manga.

    Wait you loved it because it was from Nishio Ishin and than disliked it because it became ridiculous? Nishio's stuff is always ridiculous, it's part of the charm, especially when it comes to Aikawa Jun.
