Toriko's doing great, and it's well deserved.
It's worth noting that this week corresponds to the week a couple days after the 2nd episode of anime came out. Last weeks where it was #1 also corresponded to the week the 1st episode came out. Which is probably what pushed its popularity to #1.
Rest of the TOC looks fine. Enigma isn't really a Jump-ish manga, it falls into the cult category. But it's doing well enough to not get canceled. Also its nearing the finale of its first big arc now, and all the main characters have had their introductions and all. So it'll probably do better from here.
Nice to see Magico doing well. And Bleach is about where it should be.
Things have beaten One Piece before so I really don't think it means a whole lot, sometimes it just gets second place.
Medaka is out of the bottom 5 again and above Bleach as well. That makes my day. Sket has a pretty good ranking as well being just above Medaka. I'll look forward to its color pages next week.
Reborn is too high. Outside of Spade, this entire arc has been trash. Bleach is still on the low side which is very much deserved. But the pimping for it seems to have begun again unfortunately.
Nice to see Toriko and One Piece take the top 2 spots. Thats great in my book and even though it feels like Bakuman is being dragged out now, its good to see it reach the top 5 still.
nice toc. its great that medaka is out of the bottom five since im finally caught up and its a great series. reborn also deserves its spot though its probably due to his appearence... toriko beating op doesnt really surprise me since toriko has been pretty great lately.
Magico is also getting additional pages (total 33P) along with the center CP.
Why is everyone explaining One Piece second place with the flashback. It was only 7 chapters long. I think the one ranked here is the one before the fight of Zoro underwater, so expect One Piece at top again next week... next 2 weeks
Also people who vote for One Piece know One Piece isn't in any danger if they don't vote for it one week to vote for another series they think is doing really well. I'd do the same thing that way I can support series that I like that need my support. I wouldn't even be shocked to see One Piece fall to third or fourth during a week where it was setting up the story (instead of super exciting plot moving portions) and three series that were exceptional that week beating it. Hell, I'd be all for that.
Regarding my comment: my comment about fanservice has nothing to do with the plot or foreshadowing. It's merely that certain characters lead to more votes and notice for a series than others, even if that's obviously what the mangaka was planning. It may be part of a plan, but the problem is that the voters tend to notice the character more than notice the plot twist or the importance of what is going on. And that leads to votes. I don't think Amano did it deliberately, I'm just noting how Reborn would jump up how it did when it did if you look at when they were voting, particularly with how the series has been ranking prior to then.
Next week should be better though. Chapter 28 was pretty decent. The next mini-arc was pretty typical, but the current mini-arc, the climax of the first big arc, should bring its ranking back up.
I'm more worried about Sengoku...
But if everyone would think like that, OP would definitely rank lower <maybe when OP is in second position or sth its that ppl are thinking that way and not that the chapter itself was weak >Originally Posted by Drmke
I am going to see what is going to happen when we get the Tocs referring to One Piece flashback. Though the flashback was good, i think that One Piece won't deserve to be in first, so if One Piece manages to stay in first at those tocs i will my faith in the ones that vote.
I want for once to see Naruto beating One Piece
And i think that for example the latest chapters of Toriko, some of them might have been more interesting than One Piece's.
oh ya i almost forgot about magico read chapter one and forgot to look at the rest. it was pretty good. it felt like a parody of harem shows so i really need to read more. i still need to read engima.
