I definietly think Lilienthal going to be normal series, not short paga gag series. But, I rather Ashihara serialized Trigger Keeper, instead Lilienthal.
And Medaka just barely escape bottom 5, so I think Medaka is not 100% safe, yet. I hope both Medaka and Akaboshi increase the ranking next week.
Medaka doesn't seem like it'll last long out of the bottom 5. It's almost in it this week, and heck, it's an arc conclusion chapter. I predict it'll go back to second to last place next week.
Still bitter about Kuroko getting a color page. Or should I say, about Kuroko still being alive. It can't hold the readers' interest for too long despite being the most heavily pimped in the magazine in recent memory and only survived cancellation so far because it's the last representative of its genre. I bet the editors will stop caring for it as soon as a better sports series comes and steals the spotlight. I'll pray for that to happen.
yeah, but i do hope for something better. but i think Kuroko will last at least a year and a half. probably 2 or even more depending on how well it does. its the only sports manga AND its doing pretty good on sales
i don't really see Hokenshitsu as a Jump series, so i'm betting it will eventually join the bottom group once it gets ranked.
Is there a cover for akaboshi's tank already? I believe that if it get's a really god cover it can atract a lot of readrs since the art is really good.
Well I'm very excited about the Mago color even if it didn't get an awesome cover...and Reborn and Kuroko are still too high for my taste but I guess that's just how it is.
Still too high ^^ lol just not a fan of it and don't really like the story.
And even though I don't really like it, I still read it and expect it to be around for at least 7 volumes. Though there is a decent chance it will manage to last longer.

As said, Kuroko is here to stay, for a long long time. It's tankobon sales continue to increase. Total sales for volume 2 were higher then volume 7 of Psyren. I don't like the series either but no amount of bashing in this thread will make Kuroko go away.
Last time it had color pages Bakuman lost the cover to Naruto. This week makes up for it. Shame it came at the expense Mago but at least it retained front color.
If there's any justice in this world, Mago will steal Bleach's next cover.
lmao! That would be hilarious. Toriko did that earlier this year, remember? It lost a cover to Naruto, the next week swiped one from Bleach
Cool that Reborn! and Gintama are so high <3
Toriko, however, should be a bit higher :I
Toriko (based on the chapter) was at a sort of "between arcs" mini arc. But realized with so much being unranked in this issue, it's 9th. If you don't count Wajimania which is just barely ranked, it's the 9th chapter, it's one higher. Though yeah, should be higher anyway.
Here's the list of actual rank, BTW. (If I remember all the rules right)
1. One Piece
7. Ane Dokî
8. Inumaru Dashi
10. Medaka Box
12. Sket Dance
13. Kuroko no Baset
