    I guess the main consideration for the editors is that Mago tankobons sales numbers are good. Besides of that, even though the fate of Mago's cancellation was predictable, the time of the cancellation was so sudden, so the extraordinary treatment ( 3 times x 64 pages = 180 pages? Worth 9 weeks of serialization) received by Mago is not really that strange, I think.

    Not that I can recall, never more than one chapter. I suppose serializing the final volume in NEXT is a good alternative to simply ending, I assume ongoing serialization was not an option. Certainly a good way to prevent a reasonably popular manga from meeting the same fate as Shaman King.

    It's kind of insane, but I'm happy Nura is getting an extra volume so that it will have a nice even 24-volume total. I hate it when series don't have a composite number of volumes. It's so appalling to see a series end with 19/23/29/etc. volumes.

    ^ Lol I get annoyed by volume numbers as well Though I prefer odd numbers as opposed to even ones. Numbers like 7, 13, 17, etc. look better to me for some reason.

    Prime numbers look more special than those that aren't. Lot's of series end with the uneven "1". XD

    But would you really call Mago's end a "cancellation"? It seems more like the author wants to go in a different direction, hence the sequel.

    And that cover is making me want to reread Neuro again. I'm so glad Matsui's back, it only took him 3 years. T__T

    Is Mago getting a sequel? Or am just getting my hopes up?

    I actually prefer volume numbers to be multiples of 5. Or if it's a very short series have it be 7 volumes long. I really like the number 7... xD

    I'm glad that Mago is at least getting more than just one final chapter in NEXT to wrap up the series. The amount of pages of those three chapters are around the size of a regular tankobon right?

    It sounds like the sequel will only be the conclusion of the Aoi Rasen-Jiu Saishuu Kessen (Aoi Spiral Castle's Final Battle) Arc. For whatever reason Shueisha is treating the Jump NEXT chapters as a sequel, akin to 21st Century Boys I suppose. Sasaki even felt the need to specify that the Jump NEXT chapters would be made available in English. It seems to me like a Shaman King situation, rankings could no longer justify serialization, the story was drawing to a close anyway, so they canceled serialization in Jump in favor of serializing the last volume in Jump NEXT.

    I think that when compiled the Jump NEXT volume will not be numbered, but simply titled Nurarihyon no Maho: Aoi Rasen-Jiu Saishuu Kessen. Just a guess, but that is what I think they mean when they call it a sequel. It is going to be treated like Shin Prince of Tennis or 21st Century Boys, but since there will only be a single volume, they won't even give it a number. I've never seen a single volume series numbered.

    You are getting your hopes up. The three Jump NEXT chapters are being referred to as a sequel by Shueisha.

    Assasin Classroom is up on Mangateers.

    Looks good too, though quite different from what I was imagining. I could translate it as early as this afternoon, but again that's only if no one else is going to do it. I really, really, really, don't want to start working on this thing and then go on Batoto to find it there already.

    Matsui's back though, and he's looking good.

    Assassination Classroom looks like a nice, enjoyable little mindfuck. I'm looking forward to knowing what the words mean.

    I read it too. I can't wait for it to be translated, I think this will be enjoyable manga.

    lol. I could give a synopsis? As I said before it's really quite different than I think we were all expecting. Though I only really read about the first 25 pages or so. (I'm still at my 9 to 5.) I'm getting off in about 1 hour though, and then this translation will be on the tip of my tounge.

    Surprised Naruto went down but I guess Kabuto focused chapters brought it down. OP is at the top again, Toriko is not a surprise either. Sket Dance has always been popular I guess, Bulge isn't doing bad for a new series since its in the top 5 not counting colored pages chapters.

    Surprised Gintama went low but happy Reborn is doing better. What I'm most unhappy with is of course Beelzebub, Bleach and Kurogane being in the bottom 5. Bleach should start bouncing back next week or the week after since the action chapters start then. I'm not sure about Beelzebub though and I'm worried about Kurogane's fate.

    Overall not my favorite TOC but thats TOC for you.
