    I love how the top of the TOC is starting to drastically change from the way it used to be. It's a nice change.
    These two are unranked so you can't really say anything about them yet. Senpai is a TOC UFO, it's the 2d time it has a surprising rank. I'm wandering what it will mean for medaka box though. Can it escape the next cancellation round. I doubt it if more than 2 series are chosen

    EDIT: Alright, it's definitely Gon. Not sure what it says though, the text is really small.

    huh...I was expecting Kiruko to do a lot better considering how much fanart and such it received
    I know it isn't technically ranked yet, but it still seems like it was placed pretty low in comparison

    But as stated, if it becomes a sacrificial lamb toward Medaka Box then I'll be more than happy~
    (tho I really like Kiruko's character design~~)


    but still...Medaka dead last.....my heart just can't take that..... ;_;

    By the 8 chapters theory, toriko chapter is the fruit basket one so it's a bit disapointing to not see it first

    WSJ is making an announcement about Kuroko no Basuke at Jump Festa. Anyone know what this says?

    I tell you what, that's as close to an ace TOC as there can be, in that Medaka aside it continues to make everything pretty hard to call.

    And I know it's not ranked, but for some reason I almost panicked looking at Kiruko. Clearly I'm far too invested and must be mentally readjusted

    Cross Manage is gradually doing better. I hope it keeps up.

    What's hard to call about Kurogane being in as much danger or even more than Medaka Box? Sells like a 5th of Medaka Box and is doing just as bad in the TOC. One of them is gone in the next rounds and the other one won't survive much longer after that.

    Shouldn't the anime be helping boost Medaka's popularity? I remember when the Kuruko anime came out that helped it out a lot. Hopefully it doesn't get canceled.

    From what I have seen, Anime only boosts Tankobon sales (as more people get interested in it so they buy them). ToC rankings usually don't seem to be affected, and this ain't the first time that I see ToC rankings going down after the Anime stared airing.

    Medaka Box could feasibly finish in the next 20 chapters imo but I think the latest it lasts will be its 4th anniversary in spring. That is still a ways off though and I don't know how many more flops are going to be there to extend its existence.

    Medaka's anime adaption isn't exactly a quality one nor did it go about compensating for the weaker early chapters. So now that it is finally getting to the better parts of the story it is too little too late to actually make an impact imo.

    Anime does not automatically boost popularity.

    Really TOC should be viewed as an independent entity. Ranking does not have to increase with tankobon sales. It is possible for fans, attracted by the anime, to purchase a manga by the volume (primary format in Japan), but not the magazine (secondary format). It is equally possible, as is the case with Kuroko, that anime driven popularity can result in higher rankings. Before it's anime, Kuroko consistently ranked in the middle of the TOC, or lower. Since, it has consistently ranked in the top five. Kuroko is the only recent manga to significantly improve in popularity due to an anime adaption. Neither sales nor rankings improved significantly for Sket Dance, Medaka, Beelzebub, and Mago. Toriko was already a best seller, and consistently ranked in the top five, before being adapted to anime. Kuroko should be enough to prove that it is possible for average rank to increase, along with sales, when an anime increases a manga's popularity. That does not mean rankings automatically improve for every series (past, present, future) that has increased in popularity because of an anime. But it does demonstrate that TOC rankings can improve because of anime.

    i agree with you kaiten about the anime-ToC and sales correlations. but i also think kuroko shouldnt be taken as the exception on the subject either at least not entirely. i think its recent ranks comes from the public outbursts against the attacks on the fujimaki.(of course that might just be me, since i dont see the kuroku as anything special )
