The JF flyer (in colour) doesn't say much that isn't already on the official site. Basically, vol 26-27 of the kanzenban will contain the true, proper ending for the series. Two new chapters will be added in vol 24 (more details on this below). 360 pages of full colour across all 27 volumes containing databook-type of information. All artwork/print will be retouched/corrected (of course, that doesn't mean ALL, just some.) The total number of new pages drawn for the true and proper ending is 380, the most ever in Jump history. It all begins (or ends) in April 2009 (i.e. with the release of vol 26-27).
The other b&w ad is from WSJ (likely) containing information about the 2 new chapters in vol 24, releasing on 4 Feb 2009, ch 265-266. It's the battle between Marco and Luchist (excuse me if spelling is wrong). The outcome of their battle and the reason why Luchist betrayed(?) the X-LAWS will be revealed as part of the true, proper ending of the series. Total number of new pages in these two chapters is 36.
Jump #06-07 (05/01) :
Naruto (Pc + Cover Alternative)
Kyôsuke Usuta / Double Mamedaishi (One Shot, Pc, 48p)
#08 (19/01) :
Gintama (Couv & Pc)
Ashihara Daisuke / One Shot (1ere Partie)
#09 (26/01) :
Ashihara Daisuke / One Shot (2eme Partie)
Can't wait for Ashihara Daisuke's oneshots.
His Room 303 oneshot was pretty awesome. Just wish someone had scanned it from Jump #33 for a proper scanlation.
Hey, kimiri. Got WSJ 33 by any chance? :X
xD w00t Sket continues out of the gutter
Why is Mago in the basement? I hope it's not gonna get canned. Mago's tank sales have always been very good. I hope they give it some leeway room.
Nice avy Randal. I like the battle wolf!
yeah terry cloth rocks bells!
and the bottom 5 isn't too bad this time... what we're looking at now is Love Trouble having to round it up soon despite the ovas, and asklepios leaving of course... and then i'm screwed. i'll enjoy everything to some extent (even naruto at present... bleach?..... well it's still pretty)
ugh Jump's being too kind to me lately
I suppose i can pretend to hate Bokke-san till scanlations hit the scene
I'm grudgingly working on LQ scans of chapter 1 V_V If someone takes it off my hands I'd be happy. Not that it's bad, it's actually pretty good. I'm just not overly enthused about cleaning magazine raws.

good on ya!
........... ah but then i won't hate anything... hopefully bleach and naruto will fuck up again.....
Naruto will probably end by the end of this year. I wouldn't be surprised if Bleach just had another large arc after this current one too.
And they can't keep canning the action series' so Psyren and Mago probably have some high hopes from the editors. Reborn! will never rise to the status of Bleach and Naruto, so something's gotta replace the shonen trio.
I also think only one sports series will survive, since they haven't really shown much differences so far. Chapter 3 of Kuroko was pretty much identical to Meistar's chapter 3, and in chapter 4 Kuroko is gonna face Kise, just like Raiho faced the other guy in chapter 4.
No chance Naruto ends by the end of 2009.
No chance whatsoever.
It has at the very least 3 more years to go.
What are the chances that both will get cancelled and we'll get another round of crying over the lack of sports series in Jump? The two series are THAT similar? Ouch.
I'd think Toriko's almost at the level of the Top 3, and that will probably end long after Naruto...
I almost cried when I saw DGM wasn't on the cover, but I guess that's to be expected.
Though, what do I know? Double Arts somehow got canceled before Haken.
