Pretty surprise Bleach sold more than Toriko and HxH more than Naruto. Props to AC for coming fourth with its third volume
anyway i wanted to make sure HxH doesn't sell more than naruto to ask this : what are the factors they take into consideration when they decide how many copys they would print ? i mean if naruto sells more than HxH why increase the first print of HxH over Naruto ?
edit: also I just thought, because of the hiatuses and everything, that volume might've been the first HxH volume in forever. Or maybe if there's not as many volumes per year as Naruto, they have more faith in the rare ones to come out.

Cross Manage still has a chance of surviving the next round.
Hungry Joker is dead last...
what ever get axed, the others will follow. all bad ranked series got canceled within their 1 year, like enigma, kurogane, magico and so on.
To be honest, I expect Cross Manage to end naturally by the time the next round of cuts show up regardless. Maybe it's due to its low ranks, but it's just about reached the logical end of its story so far.
I don't read Cross Manage but how is it supposed to reach the logical end of its story?? Like I would think nowadays if an author's manga gets published in JUMP he does a lot of foreshadowing and stuff, I mean, surely Cross Manage has foreshadowed future events to come, this is oh so much easier with sport mangas, just show a member of another random opposing team doing something fan-servicy.. And there you have your foreshadow! I mean I can't think of a single JUMP sport manga that hasn't done that, its in practically all of them, heck the first page of Kuroko is just a huge foreshadowing of what is to come..
So did Kaito really just planned Cross manage to finish like in a year or less? Or maybe his editor already told him to basically to tie all the knots.
BTW the funniest foreshadowings have to be Masami Kurumada's foreshadowings in Ring Ni Kakero, when he shows the captain of the Italian boxing team, Don Juliano, he is an italian mafioso carrying a baby who is playing with a REAL gun and the baby accidently shoots and the bullet like almost kills Don Juliano but he doesn't even blink and then like everyone that was around goes like, "As expected of the Mafia boss and Italian Box captain, Don Juliano, he didn't even blink".. Classic.
Yes, Cross Manage lacks any foreshadowing of that kind that won't be resolved within the next few chapters. I've been reading the series through the official release, and they were hyping one particular player for quite a while, but they're literally the next opponent, which will be faced in literally the next chapter, and no chances will come up to play them again unless the manga continues to another school year, which I doubt KAITO will be in a rush to do with ranks this low, if he even gets the chance.
