The figures in the parentheses are last year's. It looks like most of the series declined compared to last year. It's amazing that Hunter×Hunter can be so high with so few new volumes out.
wow, what a decline. i'll just blame the economy and be done with it.
God knows where Hunter x Hunter would be if it came out regularly
Also Medake completely dropped off this year? Shame, I assumed volume sales were where it did business
but isn't there one volume less for naruto than last year ?
Preview Jump NEXT! Winter:
Section 459 / Naoki Iwamoto (Lead Color Page, 50 pg.)
Kibou no Entotsu - Hashima / Osamu Akimoto (Color Page, 47 pg.)
Nurarihyon no Mago (Ending Color Page, 63 pg.)
Special Magazine Extras:
- Kuroko no Basket will have a poster with the Generation of Miracle.
- Assassination Classroom will have a interchangeable Jump Comic Cover.
- Nisekoi will have a bromide (commercial photographic portraits) of the main characters.
- Hq!! will have a special sticker, a decal.
Wow, Naoki Iwamoto's back in action early. I'm expecting and hoping for his comeback series sometime next year.
The one-shot below that XVED's art style is somehow familiar and looks good. Maybe just resembling someone's, not sure by who.

Adrenaline.) It's quite possible you might remember him from somewhere before. He also did Koshien no Mamono in 2011's JUMP Next! [Winter], if I remember correctly. Back then he'd also been collaborating with that author, Taoka Muneaki. (A former winner of JUMP's Story King Award.)
Koshien no Mamono looked darn cool from the preview pic. I never actually got to read it, though. : (
Oh yeah, I think Sugie was also a buddy of HQ!!'s Furudate-sensei.

can i kindly ask whoever gets hold of the cover to post it as soon as they get it? thanks so much guys
I'm very happy to see both AC and Beelzebub get CPs again so soon.
However, I have to wonder about the timing of Beelzebub's CP. As this is only three weeks after the last one, it kinda feels like it's getting promoted like crazy, like Reborn, Kuroko, Medaka, Nisekoi, Kurogane and Haikyu were months ago.
Is the climax of the latest arc really going to be that great to warrant another CP? Or is it because it just so happens to do with Christmas that the editors feel it needs one?

Kurogane rising up again surprised me, as the last few weeks have been... shoddy. but then I can't remember what happened 8 weeks ago so maybe I'm just being thick.
Oh god oh jeez can we stop calling things pimped? Like... Man, you have to be on the level of Blue Dragon or Maison du Penguin before you can truly call yourself pimped. These guys? They get righteous promotion.
Anyway, the TOC, um... HQ is back in 7th. That's nice. And although I've hated (HATED) Bleach of late, it's definitely been nothing if not fan-pleasing, so bully to that recovering its position. It's always good to do well on your final storyline, anything less would be depressing.
i wanted to see how this chapter of naruto is ranked compared to OP . bleach is rising while gintama is still in a not so good position
Anyway the surprise of this TOC is bleach, it has never been that high in ages. Souma is treated kindly, 23 pages for the 3d chapter doesn't happen that often, does it ?
On Soma: hasn't just about every series this year's had extra pages for their third chapters?
