I agree with them being unranked and their position being unofficial for being bumped up higher for being a new series and all, but scoring lower than average for being a new series (especially at chapter 3) just screams that it means something... I dunno, it would be interesting if someone could get data on the first 8 unofficial rankings of "flunked" series like Lock On, Swot, Dois Sol(?), Oumagodoki(?), Ikkyu and Sengoku Amours and then see if there's a pattern in the earlier first rankings.
Eh, I'm not worried about Gin. In fact this is a good thing if the ranking is indeed for chapter 400. It means the Japanese are finally accepting Gintama serious arcs and don't want Bobobo with samurai. The series was consistently high during the Suzuran arc, and while I think the story had it's issues during the run it was a very good with quite a few revelations. It's not my favorite arc of Gintama by far, but it was quite good.
As for being confused on rankings, I neither understand why Naruto is so high or why people like it, but I at least don't start flame wars by stating my vehement and seething hatred for the series openly. Whoops, guess I sorta just did. Oh well, to the bandwagon! I despise Naruto and want it on the bottom five like now. Even better! Cancel it next week despite the sales of the series being pretty decent. All because I, an insignficant overseas fan thinks it's the asscrack of WSJ. ROFTL.

on another note great cover. one of the best i've ever seen . maybe because i like the idea of the movie either way can't wait for next weeks cover
bomber you translate my second favorite manga and i respect you, but your comments have always been the same when it comes to Naruto so it's not about today.
anyway hating a series or loving it , i couldn't care less about that i just wanted to point out that you do say how much you hate naruto a lot in this thread
Liked the assertive Hinata of the cover/movie, can't Kishi just exchange her with the canon one? *glare*

More than just that, if they didn't just keep cranking them out, it wouldn't be so bad. This is the ninth Naruto film, after all, and they're just milking the franchise for all it's worth.
You have to differenciate between having active roles aka producer, support, help, character design and penning the script/plot on his/her own. Producing an anime of any manga isn't milking the franchise for all it''s worth. You could show some more restraint before it backfires heavily. Can you name some of the adapation where the participation of the mangaka didn't help at all, excluding the hellverse Bleach movie. XD
