    WSJ Pirate Old WSJ ToC's

    Ok so I've found a bunch of old Jump ToC's so I figured I'd post some ones I think are really good. I will tell the series name, author(s) name, and year it started. These are really cool.

    Dragonball's first issue
    Spoiler show


    Rokudenashi Blues's first issue
    Spoiler show


    Slam Dunk's first issue
    Spoiler show


    Naruto's first issue. (This has got to be one of the most perfect ToC's ever )
    Spoiler show


    So there ya have it. Those are four I really enjoyed. If you have any others that you would like posted, I can probably find them for ya

    Re: Old WSJ ToC's

    That is so cool! Where did you find the information?

    Oh if you don't mind, i am very curious about Kateikyou Hitman Reborn's average ranking before and after the genre switch (around chapter 64.. i think?)

    I don't have the ToC's for 2001, 2002, the last half of 2003, 2004, 2005, and a few early ones in 2006. So unfortunately I can't get you the early Reborn ones. Maybe someone else who has those issues can post it for you. Anything from 1968-2000 I can get.

    Re: Old WSJ ToC's

    The first TOC posted to the WSJ LJ is from May 9, 2005: here. It gives a good idea of how Death Note, Gintama, Reborn, and D. Gray Man did during their first year, if you have the time to go through the subsequent charts. At the time Reborn was usually in the middle or bottom. By the fall of 2005 it was high middle, near the top 5. Gintama was usually high in the top 10 by May, 2005. DGM was a lot like it was towards the end of it's WSJ run, usually low with random chapters making the top 5 or high in the top 10. Death Note was generally right in the middle but dropped more than it rose. It made very few top 5's despite being the best selling of the 2004 series.

    This site lists.... most of em. Up to 2000. Plus really tiny covers.

    Like, all the way to the beginning.

    It didn't get the cover. Guess they didn't think it would last.

    That guy Buronson wrote Hotoku no Ken. There are very few in that era I'd heard of. Still working on First of the Blue Sky in Comics Bunch.

    Wow. Naruto was an instant hit. Consistently in the top five by the middle of 2000.

    Thank you!
    Gee, Reborn's gag manga days is quite worrying. (If that is really from the gag manga days... i am not sure). I am glad they make the genre switch. I actually enjoyed the gags, but i admit there are some bad chapters... and it can't compare to the epicness of its battle arcs.

    You can see the position of the series in each issue, from 70's to now. With a little patience, you can "do" the ToC.

    Re: Old WSJ ToC's

    Both Naruto and One piece was an instant hit. One Piece never hit bottom 5 during it's first year and by 1998 was staying firmly in the top 5 and got many covers. Naruto was slower but still rises pretty quickly

    Re: Old WSJ ToC's

    here is the 2009 ToC table I made/translated for a ToC thread I made on a different forum. (copy from the ToC Table from http://jump.heavy.jp/sb.htm)


    it was a lot easier than I thought, so if people want, I can make more of the old ones...(if I have time that is...)

    Re: Old WSJ ToC's

    Can someone post some old ToC's from 2003-2004. Specifically, I am looking for the ToC's showing Shaman King's decline up to cancellation. Such a long running series being canceled is interesting to me.

    2003 ToC - Shaman King is 6th from Top
    http://www.pretty.ne.jp/~missile/jum.../position.html

    2004 ToC - Shaman King is 5th from Top
    http://www.pretty.ne.jp/~missile/jum.../position.html

    basically, for the last 10 or so chapters, Shaman King constantly stayed below 15th....
