The gap between One Piece and Naruto is... Big
I'm happy for Mago being on that list. Now I just hope it moves up on the ToCs >< With this arc ending, I hope the new arc is better (not that I personally disliked the Kyoto arc or anything) and that the readers voting like it.
*manly tears* Oumaga---!! Finally... I'm so happy Still Bottom 5 sucks but it finally(!) showed signs of living and moved up. I'm not just a happy camper but the happiest for the day~ :')
Mago should be careful because it will be cancellated if it doesn't get higher positions (wheter the volumes sale or not)

Heh, I feel so out of it with Jump as of late (busy with life and just no interest to search for scans anymore with everything shut down), but it's weird to see Gintama get it's anime back unless this really is endgame coming up. I haven't really followed anything with Gintama for months though...
And meanwhile I sort of like Toriko and Sket being in the top five, but it does seem like with long-term buffers dissappearing, series like Mago and Beezle are now getting to seem a tad weaker.

Most people don't want to see that because it is about their beloved series. But I have seen it many times before since I read a lot of cancelled series (from the very short zan to the longer psyren and mx0) I don't say it is instantly in danger but it should watch out that it won't be on that spot for 8 weeks or so because it won't be protected as long as the anime is ongoing or the volumes are selling good

No matter how passionate some fans looking at the ranking of their series, sometimes they have to remember that for JUMP, it goes down to business, it goes down to Yens. No matter how big the ranking is, if the good old money doesn't come, they don't give a shit. JUMP is owned by Shueisha, a publishing company, not a "I'm passionate about any manga even if it's sales is low" company
And so on and so on and so on
I hope that I proved my statement when I say that good selling series with an anime can get canned. WSJ will take the ToC as a measure for cancellation or not
Even the better selling TLR had to make place for the newer lesser selling psyren

I just want to disillusion people who say that volume sales and anime always topple the ToC rating because that won't stop jump from cancelling that series if it is doing very worse in ToCs. They might give it more time than other series but as you can see: CP promoting of TLR together with good volumes sells and anime couldn't stop TLR from being canned in WSJ because of constant bottom 5 positions
