*eyes pop out* please tell me I'm not seeing things.... Naoshi is BACK!!??? naruto-nii, you and me both
I agree Nisekoi was probably better off as a one-shot, but who knows this one might be be good as a series. Remember that one-shots and the serialized versions can be different. So I'm quite eager to see how he'll change things around.
Sket Dance in 3rd place again is great to see. If any series must be getting a massive boost from its anime this one might be it. Breaking into the top 3 like it has been doing is impressive. I'm a bit behind on One Piece but 2nd place doesn't surprise me from what people have been telling me. Medaka seems firmly entrenched in the
Harusigawa's downward trend continues. I shouldn't have read it yet after all. Whether it can climb up or turns into the new cushion time will tell. Enigma is as good as dead at this point I think. St&rs is at the top of the bottom 5 but still not in the best of positions. Another new series huh. Well, we will see if he learned anything from last time.
What a great ToC.
Harisugawa so low is a big surprise!
And I wish Magico to get a Color page soon and even a Cover, but it's almost impossible right now.
Is Enigma ended this issue or not yet?
Also, it looks like Nisekoi going to be serialized. I'm glad that Komi has returned but I'm not sure he brought right genre in right time. Jump already have two romance series (well, one of them is mix of action), so I'm not sure Jump needs a third one. I wonder if this means Kagami is keep doing bad or the editors try to do a another Hoopmen plan.

Gintama has a really good place too.
I guess based on the ToC, sket dance is on the roll.
Very exciting that Komi is coming back. Of his post Double Arts one shots I actually enjoyed Nisekoi the most. I'm sure it will need some retooling, all one shots do, but the premise could make for a good series. If he plays up the antagonism it could end up having a nice "Moonlighting" vibe.
It bears repeating: Jump's audience has become older over the last year. Now that 70% of readers are over 16 there will likely be more room for sports, slice of life, and romance with the number of new action titles declining. If most readers were still in there early teens, to much romance would not have worked. But based on the media guide the trend will be towards genre that appeal to readers in their late teens or older.
Y'know what?? if that Viz Jump Alpha has a section for comments, we really need to spam it with Naoshi-worship!! (of course, it'll depend if it becomes as enjoyable as DA)
Wow, Naruto still nr1 spot <I still believe its due to OP being not soooo impressive, just good, imo> I'm shocked because its the first time in a long time Naruto managed to hit nr1 spots so many times <right?>
Either its because of the
Hurmm, Magico could be higher, but at le-
NISEKOI?! NAOSHI?! YES YES YES THIS IS WHAT I WANT
Naoshi's back, Stars is out of the bottom five, and Kurogane has a color page.....goood ToC
So are we getting to see the new volume covers in this issue?
