    One difference is that Medaka Box's anime was latenight and Kuroko/AnE was primetime.

    Holy crap Togashi congrats on selling over .5 million. Bleach keep on the good fight, you can make it back into +.5 mil soon. Hope Assassins gets to .5 million as well. Wonder if Naruto ending in the near would have an effect on which volumes sell more or less. I mean Reborn! will be off the charts halfway into 2013. While it sells low compared to before thats still 1/5th of a million in a week or so.

    Kuroko's anime was also late night.

    Medaka Box was in 12pm-2am IIRC and about Kuroko I admit I thought it was at 9pm yet I don't know what time it aired

    Is it just me or is the current layout and general design of JUMP just butt ugly? Especially the design of the TOC and the numbering on the spine look both... well, rather shitty.

    Best TOC comment of the week by Komi-sensei, cracked me up so hard. Apparently, whenever he buys a book at his neighborhood bookstore he receives a bag of potatoes as a bonus. He has absolutely no idea why.

    To be honest I feel like the arguments downgrading Kuroko a bit silly. I'm not a huge fan either but it's fairly entertaining and IMO deserves the popularity boost. People might call it average and yes, there's nothing extraordinary but it's doing a lot of things right and good. Forget about realism or an amazing plot but that's not what I usually expect from a Jump manga anyway because there are certain limits and we shouldn't forget that the series are aimed at "kids". That doesn't mean it's impossible to create some kind of realism or make an outstanding/unusual plot (I guess Death Note is the best example) but I dislike when people downgrade everything that isn't. Take Kuroko for what it is: An entertaining series with likeable characters (bishies). Doesn't sound like much but these two things are done in a pretty good way and they are what makes this series so popular.

    The anime just gave it a boost but all the popularity it has now is because people realized it's a good series and still think of it as a good series. It's not just something related to japan, Kuroko's rating on MAL rose from around 8.00 to 8.50 and people who know MAL's rating probably know that's quite a lot.

    Or, you know, one could attribute Kuroko's high standing to the, well, legion of fujoishi that have attached themselves to the series. I mean, you guys saw the number of circles for comiket right? (before they were unceremoniously banned)

    At some point every one needs to admit that Kuroko's popularity is not due to slight of hand. People like the series, that is why are watching the anime, buying the books, and voting for it in the weekly rankings. Hype does not sustain success; it may attract readers, but people genuinely have to like something for it to sell so well and rank so high after four years in Weekly Jump.

    Oh, you silly people
    Airing late night would not have hurt Medaka. Primetime and morning anime are mostly children's anime, while late night anime tend to be big budget projects. The success of late nigh titles is solely dependent on BD/DVD sales, ratings obviously are not a factor.

    Jump's been ugly as long as I can remember. Beyond that, even. I'm looking at covers from each decade it's been about and the graphic design is always a clusterfuck, with poorly laid out text in a variety of fonts and colours, each getting in the way of the last thing. It's a pain.

    I've always sort of hated Jump's logo. It just looks... pretty dated to be honest. I wish Shueisha would change to a more modern design, kind of like what SQ has.

    It'd help if they were just more creative with it. That Kiruko debut cover is one of the only times in recent history I can think of where they ever bothered to try and do something interesting with the logo (and they didn't really get that down too well either)

    Who does watch a new series at 12pm or later? i would normally sleep at that time, because of my work. the time slot in germany is used for horror flicks or reusing of the primetime show, which makes sense to me. Introducing a new episode of a big budget anime sounds weird to me? I
