Thanks for posting all series sales chart, but it requires some access?
Sorry, I forgot to set it as public, it should work now.

We Gotta be getting new serializations now, right? Right??
Watase confirmed that Arata is back in April. There needs to be new stuff coming this month with it... RIGHT!? I'm on my knees, give me something new Ichihara...

Daiku survives another round. I thought that the fact that it has like a backlog of 3 or 4 volumes would mean it would end soonish but given that Souboutei, Ponkotsu, Amano are on their last stretch, I suppose it has more life to it. No one buys volumes anyway so.

Current sales figures for ongoing series:

This looks a little bit incomplete now because there wasn't enough data from Oricon. But, if Oricon Top 100 continues to be available, it will look a lot better in a few months.
That's really clean.

It's not that bad huh, and there was even an article saying that Frieren is outselling all current Magazine series which is kinda funny.
Would like to have more competitiveness to drive out some of the bottom-dwelling stuff so hopefully, a new serialization that will come can bring us something that can carry on at least a little bit of popularity from Frieren.

Oh and if it comes to Webry, before this serialization kicked in, it had (not counting adult version) 5 or 6 original manga running. Rest are series serialized in WSS/Super/Gessan/GX.
With Frieren success and Kuro Maid anime they need to put some stuff so it's not a total waste. Numbers of series running looks gullible to what Jump Plus and Magazine Pocket are publishing. I kind of get that Ura Sunday/Manga One is the main mag but then what's the purpose of it? Hopefully, they won't make the same mistake as with Club Sunday.

Conan 97 and 98 have more recent numbers iirc.
Conan 97 had 520k on the Oricon half year chart 2020.
iirc Conan 98 also had a more recent number on the Oricon 2020 full year chart Top 100, but I can't find the Top 100 rn.

I'm amused by how mundane a lot of these are when compared by the usually off the wall commentary we get.

Sunday really had not started a properly new series (not counting Alice Retry) since May/June of 2020? This has to be a breaking record for a manga magazine or at least a weekly one, it's kinda ironic to remember that the current EiC motto is supposed to be about nurturing new talents and keeping Sunday fresh but he's doing literally the opposite at the moment and i think anyone can see how isn't the best strategy at all

....I did see a few weeks back that they mentioned a climax, but I assumed it was for the current game and not the series. I...is there going to be a Sunday magazine left in a few months?

Urgh, I hope the reason Switch ends is because the author decided for it, and not because axe. I saw the circulation and the manga was doing well.

I can't see the editorial staff letting this go when the magazine is so slim as is, but not having a new serialization round at all this year is questionable in and of itself. I cannot tell what they're thinking.

This is....shocking. Switch was nowhere near its endgame, it kept talking and talking about nationals as the next step/big arc to happen. Can't believe this will all probably just be timeskipped over.

Nah, I can't believe Switch would end like that? Sport series can go for so long, maybe 2nd part starting or something along those lines?

We will see how the "last" 3 chapters go if it was an axe or maybe 2nd part starting. Hopefully, that's the case because if this would smell of a cancel I would be so mad.

I thought they will talk about new serializations on this new issue since we have Conan on the cover and it seems ideal to promote new stuff but we're still without any news so I think that's not the case. Really mind-boggling tactics by Ichihara.

Lmao, literally what happened with cramer (which having anime this season). Just suddenly ended as the major match against rival started.
I guess it's an evitable that spokon must have unsatisfied ending
