this was the only way i was ever gonna get around to reading it from the start, so that's nice.
according to Viz Twitter).
I wish USA would get more into seinen, but well, hopefully Vinland Saga does well and that could open doors to Kodansha's seinen library (or at least some of the titles, I'm not as idealistic as to think Kodansha USA will suddenly start releasing ton of seinen). Historie in hardback would be nice, wouldn't it?

See, the only Young Jump series I *really* want them to get are too weird or too long to license (being Beshari, Kingdom and 81 Diver), so I'm not holding my breath. Though... Mongrel would be nice, if that ever does well (not looking good right now for it)
It doesn't seem like ranking matter much for young jump too since your Innocent pronostic went wrong. Aside from shonen jump, TOC means nothing. There would be some japanese threads dedicated to other magazines TOCs if they were significant.

However, I believe there going to be two new series starting soon, so let's see which series going to end/axe in order to make room for it.

It is confirmed that Tokyo Ghoul has surpassed printing 2,200,000 copies.
I've never been able to tell with Young Jump as to whether it counts or not. I hope it doesn't, and it's just that horrid Weekly Shonen Jump mentality that's got me so worried about where Mongrel sits nowadays.

This isn't really manga related news. Shima Tomoyuki (the current chief editor for Young Jump; the former editor for Houshin Engi, Midori no Makibaou, Slam Dunk, Yu-Yu-Hakusho, and Shiki) got arrested for an assault against a taxi driver.
