    Oh, okay. I thought that the Kochikame thing in the issue 52 preview was talking about another tribute chapter, but maybe it's just a poster or something (since they have overlapping major...

    Does anyone know if that Kochikame/One Piece crossover thing that's mentioned is going to be a one-page comic (like Beelzebub's tribute to Kochikame) or a bit longer?

    Wow, Toriko's surprisingly low in the rankings this month. Then again, I haven't followed the rankings too closely - is it usually that close to the bottom?

    That's because it's focusing on the Uchihas (well, it's almost always focusing on the Uchihas, but in this case, it's focusing on Sasuke and Itachi). When the focus shifts to the Kages or Naruto,...

    Wait, Bakuman's ending this week?! That seems... kind of sudden. (I knew it'd be ending soon, but I figured there'd be two or three more chapters left)

    Hopefully it's more like the Rock Lee series than the Chopperman one. It probably won't be scanlated for a while, but still, I'm glad to see that Bo-bobo is still fairly popular.

    Bleach had a clear end-point, only for the author to completely ignore it and continue the story regardless.

    Would the anime's cancellation effect it in any way? I know that an anime starting up tends to boost a series' ranks, but I don't know if the principle works in reverse as well.

    Aizen never used it, let alone his Bankai. Yeah, the only way that any of the characters could beat Aizen was if he spontaneously forgot how to use any of his powers.
