By the way, those graphics posted weeks ago don't discard color pages.
Bakuman alone has done it 3 times in the last 6 months, Bleach has done so in the past and if I'm not mistaken, I remember even Gintama outdoing One Piece one time, last year.
If we do the pure rankings, OP was only beaten by Naruto as far as i can remember. And it happens less than 5 times a year usually.
To make things more clear, that ranking from the website states the issue #1 as this:
That's incorrect. Cause Gintana and Bleach had color pages, so they are unranked. We don't consider them in the pure ranking.
Toc posted by Ohana oabout issue #1:
Gintama (Lead CP)
So, pure ranking is:
Now i think everyone can see what i am talking about with the examples.

In pure rankings, Bakuman didn't have a number one nor did Gintana.
Edit: i mean, number one with OP and Naruto ranked. They probably had a number 1 when OP and Naruto weren't ranked.

Nurarihyon no Mago's beaten it before, IIRC.
It certainly is rare for things that aren't Naruto to top One Piece, but it's not unprecedented
You are incorrect, Asclepius.
Gintama, Bleach, Naruto... all of them have beaten One Piece before. Check some issues:
#Issue 31 - 2009.
#Issue 49 - 2010
Issue 31 - 2009 - Naruto unranked cause of color page.
So it did happen once for Gintana and once for Bleach without Naruto in the ranking.
There is that feeling that it wouldn't have happened if Naruto didn't have a color page...
You posted while i was explaining about my statement having OP and Naruto in the ranking. I'm slow. >_<

But, yes, you are correct, Gintama and Bleach beat OP. I just don't value that number one without Naruto ranked.
I forgot to post that Beelzebub and Bakuman have beaten One Piece before too. But I understand your point of view, Asclepius. But, think about it, if they could beat OP, possibly, they could beat Naruto as well.
Oh, i saw the Bakuman number 1 over OP and Naruto was unranked.
But, yeah you guys are correct, it happened once so far. Issue 48.

So, i don't agree with you.

No one found the issue 35-2010 to tell me that Torico has done it before with Naruto in the rankings. ¬¬
So it's not so much history anymore. This one alone breaks my statement in all points.

Hell, the last time this happened is recorded in the very first page of one of the links I gave you:
Meruhen Ouji Grim a.k.a Prince of Fairy Tale "Grim" (Cover, New Series)(Lead Color Page)
Naruto is far from unique in being able to do so, it happens once in a while, nothing new there.

On this week's TOC, is Toriko or One Piece even ranked ?
From WSJ's official site, one can see the following series are mentioned separately.
Naruto, Kochikame, Ginatama, Toriko, Sket dance, One piece.
I know the 1st three have colour pages while last three don't, but have end of flashback or arc whatever. Would they be mentioned separately if they were ranked ? So I guess there is no conformation if Toriko, SD, OP ranked. In the magazine also I guess the above six would be mentioned separately but we don't have scan of TOC.
Hisashi Sasaki twitter:
- Lunch with HORIKOSHI-sensei, who recently ended serialization of Ohmagadoki-Zoo.
- Already started working on new one shot manga, so we can see this very gifted mangaka`s new work pretty soon.
I you guys want perfect info about TOC Iceiphoenix always makes a table with all issues in the year and adds every new issue that's out. Ask her and you guys can see how many times OP has been surpassed as well as all color pages info.
