I can't entirely tell if I am right, but it looks like for 10th anniversary Jump fans can vote for a Gintama character they would like to appear on the cover in April.
Yeah, that's mentioned in the newest chapter. It's a special sort of character poll.
My money is on Yamazaki.
I was going to ask where the link was, but it looks like you have to give your vote along with the postcard you usually submit to Jump. I wonder who would make the list? Probably Okita, I remember him being awfully popular.
Guys do you know how many other non-main characters have appeared in the Jump covers? I don't mean as in multiple characters in the same cover (Example given multiple One Piece covers have got Luffy facing the arc's villian, Luffy vs different villians.
vs Don Krieg
Just to give a few examples, but in all those covers Luffy is present..
Do you remember Jump covers where the main character is not in the JUMP cover?
I remember an american Shonen Jump cover that got Vegeta in the cover (IIRC he won a contest or something like that), I don't recall any Japanese Jump cover like that, probably Sasuke had one but I don't think he did..
I only remember a cover in which Shaka (from Saint Seiya) was the only character in the cover. The little bubbles don't count since it wasn't drawn by the mangaka.
if someone other that Gintoki wins the contest and Sorachi draws the character alone I think that would be like the second time ever that JUMP has a non-main character alone in the cover.

Well the Shonen Jump Podcast said that theyre replacing Dragonball with a BRAND NEW SERIES in ~3wks.
You are awesome, also I noticed a cover with Luffy and Arlong, awesome because Arlong is one of my favorite villians.
I saw other cover.. This one with Reborn if you want to get technical Reborn isn't the main character but.. He is pretty much the main character at the same time, and if you want to get really technical he doesn't appear alone, he appears with the Chameleon (IIRC "Leo"). Again, Reborn.
Scratch that, REBORN appears in a lot of covers alone, seems like he is as much a main character as Tsuna.
BTW this site has some other covers too.
This site has some old TOCs now that we are giving pertinent links
Maybe the mods should put these links as part of the first page every time? It seems like it should be a nice addition to the opening post of the WSJ topics.
Also I noticed that cover 699 in your list is missing an alternate cover, in that issue there was a "Heroes" side and then a "Rivas/Villians" side, that's the only thing I noticed but there are obviously other things missing, but incredible database
If the series will be released within 3 weeks it is most likely one of the series that will be released in the next weeks. I hope that they choose better this time. The last choices were cancelled in Japan really fast.
It's always a gamble.
