I'm thinking that Jump is getting lots of media attention recently: Nurarihyon, Bakuman, and To Love-ru started their animation; Bleach will start another movie; 3D movie for One Piece and Toriko on next spring; Beelzebub, Sket Dance, and Level E will start theri animation next year; and announcement for another Naruto movie.
I wonder Gintama will join them or not.
Here's a table I made for the TOCs of 2010
I'm sorry about the quality Photobucket resized the image
If anyone wants the original sized image, or even the Excel document where you can split the window and order any specific volume into numerical rank order, feel free to PM me
I'm surprised by the lack of "1" One Piece has O.o
Alto, It would be cool to use excel to calculate the average ranking of each series.

Not really anything surprising at all but... Both One Piece and Naruto only dropped out of the top 3 a grand total of one time in the entire year :O
I think it'd be interesting to count the number of times each series got color pages, too. I remember seeing something like that on 2ch recently (I'd go search and post it but I don't think it was updated since it was at least a week or two ago). I remember Mago being at the top of the list with something like 12 color pages this year alone
This is my calculation from 19 October.
Add the 4 weeks it was absent and that's half the year (excluding any double issues that made the total number of WSJ issues not 52). Amazing. But again, unsurprisingQuote:
No, he hasn't. That's only the 10 weeks from issue #41~#50Originally Posted by v3g374
Whoa, I'm surprised, really surprised considering how often Kishi made his manga absent THIS year. <not to mention OP was off and that's why Naruto probably has so many 1st places xd> Still, I'm surprised that the difference isn't bigger, hyhy <3Quote:
While we're talking about Psyren, I just noticed it's going to be released in my country in 2011. Sweet!
I thought it was odd they'd pick a series like Psyren over something more popular (like Beelezbub for instance), but hey, I'm not complaining.
From what i heard, many publishers tend to choose manga that had already been finished for practical reasons. At least that was what the manga publisher staffs in my country said when they were interviewed some years ago.
There going to be new magazine called G Jump (Girls Jump), Jump magazine that contain series by only female mangakas.
Really!!?? that sounds interesting, a part of it could do shoujo and a part of it could do shounen. That'd be a pretty diverse magazine if you ask me.....
I'm pretty sure the magazine is meant to send a positive message, but I'm feeling :/ about this. Why can't women be successful in a mainstream magazine (which by and large are male-dominated)? Why should they be separated?
Right now I'm not feeling ecstatic about the idea; however, I'll wait and see if this initial reaction of mine holds.
