Nah, I do believe that.However people who thinks that their fave manga sales are low because its too "elite" are lying to themselves.
As far as I can tell the artists you mention is quite popular, arent them? What I was talking about is more popular vs non popular( practically unknown) not popular vs crazy\very popular. For a moment I personally dont think that JJK is better than MHA even though it sells better right now, But I think its safe assume that JJK is better than a lot of manga that sells 10k+Nah, I do believe that.
when Bowie, Swan, Kendrick and Kanye have works that are both critical acclaimed and popular to fan?
lol Anyway theres a lot of very good manga in different magazines but Jump has best lineup. Thats I think main reason why Jump was and still mag thats so prominent in West. The only real competitor it has is Magazine. But looking how half of its lineup are romcoms I doubt they can beat Jump. Not unless is has more action\non-romcoms titles. But at least it puts a good fight unlike Sunday that just... exists.You should actually try series from other magazines before you say that
'Best' line up when half of it being axed baits. It's better than Sunday or Magazine for sure. But wake me up when it has any gems like Harta or Afternoon. Hell, even Young Jump with even more axed baits has more exciting lineup.Jump has best lineup
I like JJK a lot, but imo there are tons of manga sell below 10k that are superior, like works by Abe Youichi or Imitation Crystal.But I think its safe assume that JJK is better than a lot of manga that sells 10k+
I think Mammo hit it on the head earlier with "brand awareness". Which magazine were the "big 3" in? Which magazine had a monthly English version (before becoming digital weekly)? Which magazine does am English publisher use as their imprint name (that actually has manga people care about in the west not just by Rumiko Takahashi)? Which magazine has multiple crossover fighting games with the name of the magazine in their name?Shouldnt next question be why Jump gets more official release? If we would completely honest we would just admit Jump has better mangas than other mags. I meas as whole lineup.
I will say among the shonen demographic it has the best action line up. If we are including digital I would say jump plus is the best with magazine being a far second and regular jump in 3rd. Best magazine in general rn tho is definitely between afternoon and young jump. Those 2 are the only magazine I can say where a large chunk of the currently running series could easily be considered masterpieces.I think if you’re specifically coming to manga nothing but Shonen (which is completely okay. That’s mostly what I come for) than Shonen Jump probably has the best lineup, or close to the best, when it comes to deliverying quality and variety
It’s arguably better the Magazine and Sunday, but it all just depends on your personal taste.
It’s you’re looking for more variation than just action/romance/sports/comedy Shonen series, than obviously Jump doesn’t have the best line up.
