    I am 95% sure that the artist for Bakemonogatari manga is Oh Great!, he just finished Biorg Trinity, so the timing is just right.

    The sheer fact that Fuuka lasted this long is almost blasphemous. Seo completely ruined the happy end of Suzuka in the worst way possible with his forced, unnecessary drama 38 chapters in. I can't believe it lasted another 3 years after that. It really makes you think about the editor who allowed that to happen.

    What really makes you think is how successful the manga was, I think the volumes sold around 90-100k.

    The series might have gotten there at the end of the year but it never did that on Oricon. Its still baffling to think that, on average, 60k people thought this was worthy enough to continue buying.

    You are right, I did check one of the latest volumes to see the sales. Even 60k really is insulting and it even got a fucking anime, wow.

    Edit: Or I confused it with Domestic Wa Kanojo (the sales)

    Isn't it good enough for Magazine standards? Most of the mangas doesn't even reach such sales.

    Yeah, those are good numbers for Magazine. At least it's ending...

    I wonder if Gotoubun will get the lead color for issue 13 since it has its third volume released the same day as Kanojo, Okarishimasu, and I believe they had lead color pages back-to-back last time. Gotoubun deserves to be consistently in the top half at the very least. It has been absolutely amazing for the last handful of chapters.

    Does anyone know how Japanese readers are feeling about Sensei, Sukidesu? I just looked over the raws, and it kind of reminds me of a crudely drawn version of Young Animal's Gal Gohan. I still can't get into the art, but I'm curious to see if there's more than what meets the eye with this series.

    Quality control is non-existent in Magazine. A bad series can run for years before management pulls it due to the lack of reader input or editorial control. (see Fairy Tail. Code;Breaker, Air Gear, or anything from Seo) It took a year and a half for them to finally pull shit like Infection from the magazine and that was mainly to push their Pocket App.

    I'd say it leans on low editorial control. Mashima has said that one good thing about weekly manga is the quick feedback to the story. So obviously the reader reactions are there but in those cases, the editor probably prioritized the mangaka's vision of what should happen and filtered out very few things. Jump is about the only magazine where editors seem to have increased control. The positive is that lots of potentially bad developments are filtered out but originality is also lost as editors might force mangaka to write events in cliche ways due to past experience.

    The chief director worked with A1 on the Kuroshitsuji Movie: Book of the Atlantic as well, he has a lot of experience with anime movies and with shounen anime, makes sense to go with him. I can't say I'm impressed by the PV they showed, but A1 Pictures movies tend to look significantly better than their TV anime, which is something you'd expect.

    Hopefully this one will keep growing. Its initial sales weren't too promising, but it has been growing pretty nicely over the last 2 volumes

    I compiled a similar list for WSJ. This is a list of what chapter manga from the magazine were on when they got their anime announcements. There might be mistakes and there are even a lot of recent things missing. It isn't easy to find this data, if I made any mistakes, please say so. Feel free to contribute with anything if you want to.

    Koe no Katachi 63
    Nanatsu no Taizai 74
    Fuuka 119
    Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo 137
    Code Breaker: 140
    Fairy Tail 141
    Kimi no Iru Machi 220

    Given how stingy Magazine is with CPs if something isn't a massive hit, you can just search "Series name colour pages" and the anime announcement spread is often on the first screen on google images. Kind of funny actually.

    Thanks for the contributions! The color pages thing doesn't seem to work for me, maybe the search results depend on your location. The list would now look like this.

    Koe no Katachi 63
    Nanatsu no Taizai 74
    Fuuka 119
    Days 134
    Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo 137
    Code Breaker: 140
    Fairy Tail 141
    Kimi no Iru Machi 220
    Baby Steps 292
    Diamond no Ace 332

    Now we can get a basic idea of how long it actually takes for something to get an anime announcement from Magazine xD.
