If someone want to see the cross manga, go HERE (chinese scanlation)
BTW, Thanks for this thread
Edit:In chapter113, Hiro Mashima also said there will be a specail chapter in magazine specail (sold on dec.20 ), the story about mira, like last year the school specail, I guess every year there will be a special chapter to celebrate the new year!!

I can't really believe I never realized it before: somehow I was doing a bit of research on the mangaka who did a couple notable gambling manga in seinen such as Akagi & Kaiji...and apparantly, he's the one behind "Tobaku Haouden Zero" in Magazine! While I can't say if it's a hit or not (though it has lasted a year), it could explain a bit on why it has lasted quite a while...well that and it's a bit shocking that with all the Akagi hype out there that no one has picked this series up.
It's odd, from reading these few pages about Magazine....it seems like there are usually 3 or 4 series on break every week. That's much different than Sunday and Jump who have maybe one or two every so often. I wonder why that is?
Extremely delayed take: couldn't post it where I usually do today.
Now as for the current rankings (based on the latest TOC):
-Suzanu (model, cover)
Absent: Ippo, Air Gear, Shimasen, Area
(This magazine really drives me mad: one week a series can be on top, the next near bottom...do they even rank in Magazine!?)
Considering that three of the most popular series are always near the middle or bottom I'd guess no :/
Hammer Session! (End)
#04-05 Special 550p (24 Décembre) :
Hajime no Ippo (Couv & Page Couleur)
Code Breaker (Page Couleur)
Kôjo Jôkura / Ore ha Captain (One Shot, Page Couleur, 31p)
Miyajima Reiji x Harada Shigemitsu / Suzuki no Shiten (Nouvelle Série, Page Couleur, 42p)
I'm not gonna count the model on the cover...so I'll just start from the series as they are for the ranks:
-Eden (35 pg)
-Hammer (cp, end)
-Air Gear (22 pg)
-Absent: Negima, Zero
I still don't get if there really is any sort of order in this magazine...series go up, series go down and series that last two years get respect as they end. It just gets weirder by the week.
I look at the TOC with the same mind set I would Jump. I see Code: Breaker that low and am terrified it will come to a grizzly end. Then I see Tsubasa one spot ahead and that it will get color pages next issue From now on I'm assuming series are placed. Everything seems to have a certain section of the magazine it appears in and rarely moves.

Interesting to see KimiMachi and Fairy Tail higher this week...oh, sorry for the delay take, just got back from London and I had no chance to check this all week.
I don't get it, Air Gear sits a top the charts for a week no matter what when a tank comes out and yet it seems to float around mid table in the TOC of WSM, which seemingly always prevents it from getting colour pages or covers.
