    I wonder if it's possible for RxL to be moved to Jump+, it'd look odd to keep around a new series for a whole year or more extra in perma-bottom 3 waiting for an anime but the series sells well enough (and of course has that huge fujosports anime boost potential) that it'd be a waste to just cancel it.

    Serious question, does being picked up by viz have an influence on a series staying power?

    I would think no, but somewhere at the back of my head,I have a voice that says that it might be why robo is still around.

    Viz picked up Love Rush, it was axed within 10 chapters.
    Viz didn't pick up Hinomaru Zumo, it's still living despite being the sole member of the 30k club.

    And then two chapters of Black Clover which were universally panned by fans were ranked 1#. :derp
    Then a chapter of Dr. Stone ranked higher than a chapter of Heroaca that trended on twitter.

    People still think that the ToC is placed based on quality for some reason. :eyeroll

    I think the actual conclusion is that the people commenting or posting on social media arent the ones who are actually voting, which can explain any discrepancies.

    >When you waited for Bozebeat to flop so you can tease its fans about it but they already jumped ships to Jujutsu Kaisen

    anyway, about Yonkou hyping Ziga, people need to understand these leaks providers are people just like us, so with that in mind when they post something differentiate between a news piece and an opinion piece

    People were obviously going to jump to Jujutsu, the newest battle shounen is always the one that gets the hype even if it's complete and utter garbage in every single way (Red Sprite).

    While I get what you're saying "Sigh" People fail to take characterization into consideration, the dude has no reason to do that.

    I come back to 10+ unread pages thinking that HZ or Kimetsu had some big news but it turns out it's just Black Clover and Hero Academia "discussion". Glad to see things will never change lol

    Making up flaws that aren't there is kind of a running theme in discussions here.

    On a different note, I hope one of Act-age or the 3 new series survive, I want something new in WSJ to read.

    Jujutsu Kaisen should last. Its refreshing and a breath of fresh air. I cant find anything that one would dislike in it.

    Yeah, I'd like it if something would survive as well, it's been a while since Jump has put out anything new and exciting. I've just used this chance to discover other great new manga from the other magazines though.

    Edges? MHA's anime is far more popular than SnS so it's not a close win for MHA.

    I read plenty of other stuff, it's just that I like to read all my WSJ series together (I always wait with Kimetsu/Yuuna/Gintama/Haikyuu until English Jump is out to read them in one session). It's like having a whole little book to read every Monday.

    That's an interesting way to do things. It would be great if at least two manga would survive.

    What was wrong with Red Sprite? The first 2 chapters were kinda whatever but it progressively got better. At least from what I remember.

    I just want a new gag manga. It's so sad now that Saiki and SW are gone, the magazine doesn't feel the same for me. Lycopene isn't that interesting. Don't fail me with the next serialization round, WSJ. Please.
