Having stock problems with vol 1, after the start of the anime is a bad idea... Shueisha needs to step it up.

I saw some sites recommended by Shueisha here and some of them are out of stock or with a considerably number of days of shipping. I think that problem of stock is not only speculation anymore. XD

Not necessarily implying that the amount of twitter followers is indicative of a series' popularity, but the Isobe twitter account was created near the end of November, and it already has 10,000 followers. Soma and World Trigger's ones were created a little over a month before then (October 20th or so) and each have a little over 12,000 followers.
Sasaki doesn't follow the Isobe twitter, but the Soma and Trigger pages do, so it's probably official.
Those of you who watch Hunter x Hunter, about how far through the current arc are they? If possible, could you estimate about how many more episodes to finish up the arc?

Still the election arc to go as well though. Initially didn't Madhouse announce they intended to animate ALL of Hunter x Hunter? If so I'd assume they would wrap up the 2011 anime with the ending the manga used for the last batch of chapters. I get a new arc technically started but an open ended ending is better for a series that is likely to continue. Plus I've been secretly hoping Togashi will return when they finish airing the current anime. More useless speculation: VIZ is releasing volume 32 of the manga in April and they have always remained behind the Japanese releases so....*fingers crossed*
Perhaps Beelzebub will be the first JUMP manga to end this year, with the newest chapter it almost feels as if he is rushing towards ending this by the end of February or something.
I will admit there's still a good chance a portion of the elements to resolve the plot will be left out anyways, like the sea of characters that got put on buses and the themes that never really gained much merit. But it's simply impossible the manga will end within the next few weeks.

I will avoid the plot discussion because it is not the right place to discuss, but regarding the TOC position, it is not a problem of a month or two. Beelzebub has gotten low rank for a long time now, it is most of time in the verge of the bottom 5 or inside it, only saved by new series which failed. The sales has decreased, too.
I don't know if the series will end in the next round or not, but by how the story is going, it will not see the end of this semester.
I didnt think Beelzebub is ending in response to its rank but just rather the story.
I predict that Beelzebub's recent pace is something of a red herring, I don't think it's going to end so quickly, so I don't see it ending in the next round. However, I would say that its weeks are numbered, I can see it ending in a few months. Probably before the middle of the year.
