1)When you say that Stealth Symphony is doing bad is it doing bad on all parts of the questionnaire or just on the main part of being serialized? (Well Ryougo's stories are not that easy to comprehend and are quite complex but I'm probably saying it as an excuse to myself since I don't enjoy hearing that)
2)Can you see the results that have amounted up till now or are you talking about online forum's opinions such as 2ch?
According to the 2ch thead, Yoakemon is doing bad, Egg Knocker is doing pretty good, and Stealth Symphony is doing good.

Yoakemon is also being criticized heavliy for being a rip-off of One Piece.

Zero, judging from what you've seen on 2ch do you have an idea of what the oneshots are about? I bought my issue but even then I won't really be able to tell what the oneshots are about.
I would love some RAWs from Jump VS.
I read this week's english WSJ and it seems their going to have Iwashiro's new one shot next week as well. Still wish it was an actual series, but it's nice to see him getting some love internationally.
Wow Kochikame chapter 1800 already, IIRC the chapters don't have numbers anymore, right?? (Like they aren't numbered in the WSJ release, don't know about tankobon).
So in like 4 years or so its gonna celebrate its 2000 chapter, in 5 years it will be JUMP's 50th birthday and in 6 years ONE PIECE should be reaching its 1000 chapter. (probably 7 years since Oda takes a week off like at least once every 2-3 months).
Are there any big JUMP milestones I might have missed?
About Jump chapters counting, it seems aren't precise:

lol.. So JUMP basically advertises Kochikame's new milestone whenever they feel like it.. I mean even the issues are different -.-
I definetly can see Akimoto doing it, I mean remember Japanese people have higher expectancy, though I don't think he will continue the series until he dies, hopefully he gives the series an ending before he dies, I personally haven't read it nor watched the anime so I don't know, but I think the series is episodic in nature, kinda like Gintama or Simpsons, so it could end next issue and there wouldn't be a problem, right?
The thing is, they often don't put something EXACTLY on the anniversary because otherwise they'd be limited by other things. Like new manga coming out kinda require it. Manga right before a movie comes out kinda need it, etc. Kochikame's celebrations don't mean it's "exactly that week" just "that's when they're celebrating it."
I get my copy in another 2-8 days, so I'll let you know when it arrives. Send me a PM or else I'll probably forget >.>
Actually, there was one thing that always came up that I remember:
