Good to see Psyren go top 5 even if it deserved it more six months ago than it does now Still, a good series, always glad to see it do well! I'm disappointed Mago dropped to the middle, life will move on I guess. I'm less shocked that OP gets the month of color, rather I'm surprised Oda is willing to do that much at once. He usually only seems to do 4 or 5 a year.
well, now we all know what Oda has been doing during all those hiatus...
such a busy man.
first its the movie vol 0, than chap 0, and now OP month.
thank you Oda
I guess this month of color pages is like WSJ's new trend?
I'm assuming Kuroko will get one eventually.
I got back from NYC and the first thing I get to see is that Psyren has a top 3 place: I call that, sweet and smooth Iirc, the rated chapter is the one where Grana and Miroku meet each other in the future (or am I wrong?)
Anyway (from top to subtop and from subtop to bottom), yoyo-ing is a fact for a lot of series: beelzebub, kuroko, psyren, mago
Not too surprise about Mago, it is based on the chapter where they show Rikuo's dumb friends in Kyoto. It will probably rise again with the battles in the second seal
I'm kind of sad Psyren yet to have any project going on.
Sket Dance and Nurarihyon got drama cd, novelization, and advertised on Jump Bang; Toriko got OVA for Jump Tour; Bakuman and Inumaru got vomic; even Kuroko and Beelzebub also advertised on Jump Bang. Compared to these series, Psyren has nothing. I hope Psyren will get something soon.
Psyren hasn't gotten anything because it hasn't done as well as those other series in general.
But maybe Jump will start pushing Psyren if it's gotten third place after usually being more like 10th-15th...
Toriko's in first, so I'm glad about that.
Even with the cover they put Gintama kinda low, but I suppose when something has the cover even without the opening cover, its rank is sorta unfixed.
And I dunno how Kuroko always gets so high, but no one's scanlating it so how could I... I'm not reading raws for a series as complex as that...
Neko Wappa and Kanata Seven Change are still unranked, but Jaguar has a color page, both shifting things up and down.
Plus Bleach is absent, so it makes the magazine ranking kinda weird.
to be honest, its not that bad of a series, even though its not something amazing. its good enough to keep until a new sports manga comes out.
Somehow at this point, I think that even with Psyren's sudden jump into third, the only way that it probably will get more respect in the TOC is if it can do so more often. I mean it isn't really a cellar-dweller anymore and may finally be catching on, but that won't really get it the notice that some of the other '08 series are getting (particularly Toriko and Mago, which are both essentially bee-lining to anime at this point).
Seeing OP getting first again after essentially forever brough a smile to my face for sure. Other than that, it's a really confusing TOC (made even more so with Gintama's end of month cover and Bleach being off, taking them essentially out of contention)
the ToC are based on 8 chapters before, since ToC for first 8 weeks are pre-determined, so that means ToC that comes out on chapter 9 is showing ranks of chap 1 right?
So isn't this ToC showing chap 39? (47-8=39) or am I missing something....
I always get confused with matching the ranks to right chapter
One piece color month is bitchin' though. (Whining) Why couldn't Gintama get a 'true' month though? It seems to me that they 'celebrated' in name only....
I'd watch a Mago anime though. (And that's saying a lot, as I'm pretty picky nowadays. I think the only shows I watch are Gintama and the new DTB.) I sort of echo what some others are saying, that Psyren deserves a bit more love.
Moderator message by: Kaiten.SamaIf, in theory, said person were interested in translating a certain series this theoretical person should PM a certain mod who would kill to scanlate that series. He has his own thoughts on chapter 1 but hesitates to post them publicly.

I hope this is a sign for good things to come Psyren's way.
And if I'm not mistaken, Psyren's ranking is based on chapter 88 which was Ageha's Dad being revealed and the return of Matsuri.
