Now the ToC will be even more interesting to follow. As all three recently added series seem like they could stay.
Who will be pushed further down in the ToC if 1 or 2 of the new series gets really popular?
And who will be the new bottom dweller? Cross Manage? Medaka Box? Or someone else? Hopefully not Hungry Joker...
I'm definitely looking forward to it.
My bet at least from the looks of recent events is that Medaka box might end soon and as for Cross manage it seems to be hovering above the safe zone pretty well, the early spoiler said that HJ was dead last and at least some of our opinions here(mine included) is that it got better only in chapter 5 so maybe in Japan it was also like that and they just want to cover it up that the beginning flopped a little...I really cant get out of my mind though the DGM vibe I get from HJ which does makes me wonder how it's gonna sell.
BTW about World trigger has anyone read the oneshot and could give a little info about it, at least generes since it's not on Mangaupdates?
Trigger Keeper. He seems to have changed the name slightly for serialization. As far as I know it was never translated. Nothing posted here, at least. Raws might be available somewhere on the internet, but a lot has changed since 2009, most of the sites that had the raws are gone now. No one even posted a synopsis here. It was supernatural/action story, with a modern day setting. Beyond that I can't tell you much.
Guys since Prince of Tennis kanzenban is ending either in February or March (Or April?.. Well the official web http://tenipuri-perfect.shueisha.co.jp/ already has the last cover so I guess it should end soon) did Shueisha announced what's the next kanzenban already? They announce it earlier, like a month or two in advance.
April Jump Comic releases
- Kochikame 185
- Naruto 64
- Sket Dance 30
- Kuroko no Basket 22
- Medaka Box 20
- Kurogane 8
- PSI Kusuo Saiki 4
- Hungry Joker 1
- Shokugeki no Souma 1
Medaka and hungry joker are my choices.
I really want Cross Manage to survive until the first volume comes out, who knows it might have good sales and I really like the series.
Medaka looks like its heading to a natural end anyways so it will likely go first.

Rookie Policewoman Kiruko-san is bottom 2 in Issue #10.

Medaka Box is bottom 6 and Retsu!!! Date-senpai concluded at bottom 1.Quote:
Huh, just when it had a nice comeback/rebound going last week... so I guess that ultimately makes it two weak starts from the last bunch with only Souma heading towards a brighter future.
Actually makes me wonder if Kiruko is in fact even less popular than Hungry Joker, which supposingly bombed with its first chapter? Not that it really matters because I can't see either making it past 40 chapters with their current momentum. :/
Still keeping my fingers crossed for HJ because it does have some potential to it... I guess... (If only Tabata would refrain from incoherently jumping from one battle to the next one without any real progression of the story in between. )
I'm still a bit doubtful of this whole "hungry joker at the bottom" business. Does Jump ever actually place a low-ranking series that high up for 3 consecutive weeeks? If so, why are they doing it for HJ but not for Kiruko-san, or Retsu!!, or for Cross Manage? It doesn't seem like Jump to be this arbitrarily nice to one particular unpopular series.
It's probably more likely that the poster lied though and Hungry Joker is doing decent though.
