Yep HQ is in danger.
The big announce is the HQ anime, but don't mind me I'm just a fella who thinks that TOC really matters for new series and the ones aging badly (ehm Beelzebub, Mago, Medaka)

naruto could end within a chapter or 50 more. depending on how fair kishi wants to stretch it. he already brought back all dead characters, why stopping there and not bringing back their parents and grandparents. its not like he is limited to be reasonable or good at it anymore.
Maybe the big news is the start of one-shots world contest (remember?), the delivery deadline was October.
A soprt's anime is not done so fast, Slam Dunk's anime took it's 2 years and 11 months ~ to start and it was a success even before the anime.
Eyeshield 21 took 2y5m to be made into an anime as well and from those sport manga and PoT we can deduce that it will take a little longer for those to become anime since every chapter can be covered in much less time in anime since there is a lot of movement and less dialogue.
Take KnB for example the anime did ~3 chapters per episode since after episode 25 we are 73 chapters into the manga and there are events from further chapters that were shown in season 1.
The end of Karasuno x Seijou match is a nice way to finish the first season of Haikyu's anime.
i for one am sure that everyone is right except those who are totally wrong. it matters that high kyuu!! is low, but not enough *yet*. time and animation will tell of its true fate.
also side note daijirou inoue (Mutou Black) is an assistant of Masahiro Hirakata (rookie policewoman kiruko-san). and it romanises as Shinmai Fukei KILLCO-san. today's comic package has been WEIRD
Also, regarding Kuroko, you're saying that Kuroko had around 200 chapters when it got an anime actually supports my reasoning. A sports manga in Jump with around 200 is a lot already. If you still failed to understand: You said Kuroko had less than 200 when it was animated. You made it sound small, but it is already a lot in case you don't know. It's also not like I advocated that "genre has to do with animation selections," I merely reiterate that most sports manga get animated when they stacked years worth of chapters. It may not have been an actual fact, but evident to that were the majority of Jump sports series only getting an anime when they stacked up chapters; take it as a hypothesis. So how does that contradicts my own reasoning?

Huh? His point was genre has nothing to so with when/if a manga gets an anime adaptation. Like you said, what you're saying is a hypothesis. The be all, end all is popularity and that's it...

Kuroko initially was not a success. For a long time it's rankings and sales were, at best, mediocre. It took a while to reach the level of success HQ (and Nisekoi) enjoyed relatively quickly. That is why it took almost three years to get an anime. There is no rule for when a manga is adapted to anime. Sometimes it is two years, sometimes three. Some series from less mainstream magazines take even longer than that.
Well, I'm still curious as to why you thought I'm contexting "genre has anything to do with which series gets an adaptation."

I think people are assuming a lot when they say sports series need to have hundreds of chapters before adaptation, while stuff like comedy and romance need significantly less chapters. It's about popularity, and if anything else, pacing. Pacing doesn't have to be genre-specific 100% of the time.
It is about popularity, and sports anime are not popular. Here is a listing of every currently airing anime (not including young children's programming):
Notice that there are only two sports series. Ro-Kyu-Bu is based on a light novel, nobody watches it for the sports. Teekyuu is based on an manga, episodes are 2 minutes apiece. Studio's hesitate to animate sports manga, only adapting proven titles. Nisekoi was licensed so quickly because romance anime (including lovekome) are incredibly popular right now. It's a more desirable property than HQ.
