It's such a bittersweet day for me, as a Reborn fan. Today the end of the series has been announced; the day after tomorrow I will be at Lucca Comics & Games for an event in which the first KHR episode will be showed, dubbed in Italian, and the tankobons 1 & 19 will be presented, because the comic's rights have finally been bought by a SERIOUS publisher, which will start the serialization from numbers 1 (for people who never bought the manga) and 19 (for people who had bought tankobons 1 to 18 by Planeta, who discontinued the series).
I know they "rob" the info but their JUMP sources have been correct so far.. The one thing they weren´t was with the ending of Evangelion, but that´s because Kadokawa Shoten had told them it was ending but it didn´t.
What do you mean?
Was REBORN manga cancelled in italy too? Was it published by Planeta too? The only manga publisher I know in italy is Star Comics and Panini IIRC..
Which publisher bought REBORN?
BTW this might mean the USA might get REBORN! again? To me it seems like Shueisha might have realized REBORN! isn´t such a big seller and might be willing to allow publishers to print a more modest run of copies, i.e. if Shueisha first wanted REBORN!´s print to be 1,500 copies they are now allowing it to be 800 or so..
This is of course just a theory of mine, but it seems suspicious that Italy and Spain get these kind of announcements when REBORN! ends.

Hmmm, Takamagahara and Koisome Momiji will be missed, despite the former being a mess that screwed up straight out the gate and the latter... no wait I loved everything about Koisome Momiji. And Reborn ends in a totally natural and expected way. Feels too much a rarity nowadays.
But who cares about any of that NISEKOI CHARACTER POLL YES
Do we know what genre are the other new series than Hungry Joker ?
Shokugeki no Souma was a Gourmet manga that ran in Golden Week's Jump NEXT! this year. From its style it kinda felt like Hashiguchi Takashi's brilliant Yakitate!! Japan, working with lots of funny and/or Ecchi moments. (I must have a raw for this one lying around somewhere... ah, found it. Gonna upload the opening pages.)

Second hentai artist coming to Shonen Jack, eh.
Nothing wrong with but I wonder if this is above the average.
I liked Hirata's oneshot last year so I'm interested in Kiruko-san.
Though it seems like something that'll probably get overshadowed by the other two.
why are many new series keep cancel lately?
It's actually a lot better than it was in 2010/2011. Everything between Medaka Box in 2009 and Kurogane in 2011 was canceled. Since then we've had Nisekoi, Haikyuu, Kusuo Saiki, and Ass Class all become popular manga.
