.......What......? A duo of sparkly bishounen with yaoi undertones?? good god, no thanks.....
My ranking for the one-shots:
4. Moon Walker
Furthermore, Hara Tetsuo (illustrator of Hokuto no Ken) still made his serialization, despite of being blind on one eye.

Actually I really liked Kintoki. It has a really simple plot, but that's not really what make Akira's series that good. It's the feeling you get from reading it, which is really good.
4. Moon Walker LTD (Think he's more fit for a sports manga - Bad storytelling, but awesome art)
Still not read: Poh and Succeed
If Jump editors planned to do super legends one shots, then I think they should do one shots by: Akimoto; Toriyama; Inoue; Oda; and Kishimoto.
I don't think Konomi would do something at the same time he's doing Prince of Tennis though. I don't know why it is monthly now, but isn't it because he didn't want the weekly pressure of doing one chapter a week?
Usuta on the other hand would probably do something new soon. Think you are quite right about Toriyama. He could probably do what he want. I would love to see another long weekly running manga by Toriyama!
Yeah I thought Moon Walker was ungodly terrible, sorry to say.
As things currently stand, I'd probably rank them Bankara > Kintoki > Bench > Moon Walker. Really wanna see AKimoto's and Usuta's though, seems like they kind of got lost in the mix.
What is Saikyo Jun bu!! btw? It was listed on the "this week in shonen jump"-list on www.shonenjumo.com, but I havn't heard anyone talk about it on this forum yet.
New serie? One-shot?
As for the Super Legends One-shots, is someone planning to do Usuta's? I haven't read it yet but if it turns out good and I'm bored I might consider doing it, seeing how I've caught up with Oumaga on JUMP.
As for the one shots, I liked Moon Walker the best. It had a good story, characters and setting. As for the "yaoi" undertones, so having two male main characters makes your story yaoi?
It's just a pure bromance!
Bench felt awful to me, and Kintoki felt bland. Bankara was amazing though.
Wow you guys are tough customers.
I agree that Kintoki was kinda boring and nothing new, but the other ones were good imo.
Moonwalker was very long and the story was clever and new. That, and the art was great as usual.
Bench was just fine too, in my opinion. Nothing special, but I honestly don't get the "KISHI FAILS LULULUL" comments... It's a regular sports manga and it has a good set of characters. They all had their background stories and stuff, and the main character had that "Shonen Jump Determination" thing going on.
Haven't read Bankara yet, though, so I can't say anything about that.
Anyway, yeah. You guys? Tough customers.
Moon Walker was actually pretty good. I didnt think it was THAT bad
4. Moon Walker
Overall, these were all pretty good. Kintoki gave me a nostalgic feeling. it was like reading Dragon Ball all over again. I really want this to get serialized.
