What a silly conversation. Bleach is not ending any time soon. Kubo claims this is the last arc, the editors will give him the time to finish it, even if TOC rankings are not what they once were. We all know that Bleach will be around for two or three more years.
Why even bother comparing a comedy manga to action Bleach and Gintama don't have fuck all in common.
Seeing One Piece so low makes me feel slightly nauseous. Punk Hazard is a great arc. Please don't sing the gospel of Gintama to me in response. I've been reading the damn thing since before some of you folks knew what mangas are. I even scanlated the damn thing, all be it briefly. Don't want to hear about it, don't tell me, I don't care

I based that remark on Kaiten's remark. Shouldn't you be asking him that, not me?
Or if you misquoted that for the remark "Though Gintama and Bleach have a decent few things in common", I'd answer "No", btw. And if it's commonality for the two instead for Jump, then action is a factor to consider.

Diversity is the main force of Jump i would say
You people make me wanna read/watch that Gintama..
I dunno why people are worried about One Piece not being in the top 3. Its not like it went past 5 or even 10 (which would cause a huge stir).
I don't agree that OP should be that low though. If anything it should have been low near the beginning of the Fisherman arc. God that was a boring arc till near the end.
I was not actually referring to the TOC though, which is why my post never mentioned the TOC. Prior to my post there was some discussion of how much better Gintama is than this manga, that manga, and Bleach. I was merely pointing out that comparing two manga that have virtually nothing in common is a bit silly. The appeal of each towards their respective fans is different enough that conversation between is somewhat pointless.

I actually don't look at new TOC's anymore, I don't read very many Jump series. One Piece and Hunter x Hunter are the only series I consistently enjoy, I still read Naruto and Bleach though. I used to read Sket Dance and intend to catch up someday soon. Otherwise everything in Jump bores the hell out of me.
We don't really worry about One Piece but the thing is that you count it on the fingers of a hand the number of time it was that low in the TOC in the last 10 years so, to me, that is THE important thing of this TOC.
One Piece was also not really well placed in the double cover page issue even if its real place is hard to figure, maybe japanese don't like Punk hazard that much which is weird, but it should change once the recent characters introduced are ranked.
And Jump has 2 really excellent comedies Gintama and Sket Dance (may add Beelzebub in the lot), everyone should read them

Also I just realized that the Bleach rankings 9 weeks back was the chapter before or after the new arc since the new arc was a color page and isn't ranked.

Well, there ARE records going all the way back if someone wants to look at it.
Like I said, there was that one time a couple years ago when One Piece was ranked low for getting the manuscript in late.
Between these two sites, they have all of them up to earlier this year.
But it's as everyone said, it really doesn't matter. And it's not likely One Piece is going into decline or anything. I think it's more just people really liked the Gintama and Toriko chapters and such that week.
