Stats are in the WSJ thread if you'd like to go check for yourself and actually be updated on Jump culture rather than just be making random claims with no factual basis behind them.
I'm not going...
My Hero Academy already sells more than Naruto did when it was in the same time in its life.
Black Clover despite being a terrible series also looks like it's going to be a pretty big success due to...
You really don't pay much attention to Jump do you?
AssClass, My Hero Academia, Haikyuu, and Shokugeki no Soma are all massive sellers.
AssClass already sells more than Bleach per volume.
Those ratings are obviously for Japan.
Bleach has always done well on American TV.
Also, Kubo is known for making big claims. He also isn't the Jump editorial system so just because he says that...
No, we just don't want bad series to succeed.
Hinomaru Sumo was not a GFC winner.
I'm really hoping Kagamigami is able to succeed.
Iwashiro is one of the best writers among Jump mangaka. He's also great with comedy, and has an incredible knack for drawing dynamic battle scenes...
Ooh, while the art could use some work (which it probably has seeing how that one-shot was from 8 years ago), I really like the panel-work and art-style
Excited to see the series.
Black Clover is anything but original.
It uses every cliche and trope in the book and plays it as generically as possible.
I also don't see any resemblance to Tolkein's works whatsoever.
It's distressing to see Black Clover being successful.
I expected Jump readers to have better taste.
Not to happy to see Yokota Takuma in Jump either, I've never been a fan of his works. He's...
I disagree entirely.
There are countless examples of well executed experimental film, music, literature, animation, and comics.
Just because some experimental works end up not being executed well...
Just because something is experimental doesn't make it good.
Take "Enter The Void" for example, it was a very ambitious and experimental film, but at its core it was a failed experiment due to its...
That's objectively untrue. It's TV ratings were disastrous towards the end.
Hardcore Bleach fans want to use the "caught up to the manga" excuse, but in reality the anime was cancelled because it...
Give me one example when that has ever happened.
There's still the 50+ chapters it amassed while running in Weekly Jump.
That should be enough material for a one season anime or drama.
Black Clover is terribly written alongside being super generic.
I mean seriously? That's such a generic trope but delivered as bluntly as possible.
No they won't.
I'm hoping that Kochikame's mangaka retires in the next few years to leave an extra free space in the magazine.
Here's a fun game.
What do you think Jump's lineup will look like in 4 years in order of popularity?
Here's what I'm thinking.
One Piece- Eiichiro Oda
Boku no Hero Academia- Kouhei Horikoshi ...
Here's my bet for the ToC
Shounen Jump Issue 20(4/13/2015):
Gintama (Cover, Lead CP)
Shokugeki no Soma
My Hero Academia
Looks like we might get two successes from this round after all.
Kagamigami has been doing better in the rankings than both iirc.
Although I admit, I did jump on the hype train for Illegal Rare as well.
Looks like Jump has another success!
World Trigger's anime is NOT in any possible way great.
This is coming from somebody who has actively defended the adaptation against haters.
To say it's mediocre or okay is fine, but "great"? It...
The Black Clover position isn't fake.
The picture is obviously fake, but it didn't come from the same source.
Yeah, it was a glitch I now realize.
At first I thought there was just an onslaught of people asking what was going on.
Can you guys elaborate? What do you mean?
We're talking about how One Piece is getting cancelled next week.
TMS or Madhouse would be preferable.
White Fox could be really good as well as long as they remain faithful to the source material.
So I don't read Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal, but according to ESJ they are currently in the final duel so I assume the series is ending soon.
Assuming the series gets replaced with another monthly when it ends;...
Eh, it's art and panelwork gives it an identity.
Hungry Joker was just straight up bad.
Black Clover isn't necessarily bad, but it's very very generic and cliched.
I feel it has some potential though.
Gintama will probably end within 20 chapters. It's seeming pretty endgame right now.
AssClass could possibly end within 20 chapters, but that might be rushing it a tad.
Bleach's pace has been...
To be honest; I don't think it's too much of a stretch to think that both Kagamigami and Black Clover can survive.
Both have gotten good reception online and have fanbases already building at a...
True, but he specifically said Kanji's.
It's just a pet peeve of mine when people act like they know something when they really don't.
You mean you just used Google translate? Because a year ago you weren't able to read any Japanese.
Chronos Ruler looks really sick and had some really well done color pages.
I'd love to see it scanlated.
Looks edgy and generic as hell.
Doesn't Birdmen sell pretty well?
I don't understand sentiments like this.
I know a lot of people here like to act like quality is wholly subjective, but I find that to be a ridiculous opinion.
If quality was entirely subjective,...
I'd say Soul Catcher(S) was luckier.
Managed to last over a year, almost always in the bottom 5, and even got a vomic and was moved to a different magazine rather than outright be cancelled.
No it isn't.
Just because you may have been right about one or two things at one point, does not change the extraordinary amount of times you were proven very very wrong.
I fucking loved chapter 1 of Kagamigami.
The characters, art, atmosphere, comedy, action, and just about everything was just so well executed.
It's nothing entirely original by any means, but it...
You go ahead and name a series that ranked dead last within its first 20 chapters and still managed to recover and become a hit.
I know you don't care about writing and only care about cute boys, but the original Shaman King is far superior to SKF which was pretty meh for the most part (the main characters powers were also...
...You just read the sequel to a series without reader its predecessor?
My problem with Seraph is after an interesting but generic and edgy first chapter, it immediately became even more generic by throwing in a school setting.
There's nothing special about the series,...
Have you ever read Shaman King?
That series just straight up ended mid-arc.
If Hinomaru Sumo gets cancelled I'll be legitimately butthurt. It's already one of my favorite Jump series of all time.

If he's attracted to the male character designs then it's a masterpiece of epic proportions that will revolutionize the industry.
If he's not, then vice versa.
