Then after that arc, it really starts subverting things as hard as it can, and becomes impossible to predict, and a total trip to read.

    Don't let the mary sue main character deter you, I'd say half the point of the manga is to deconstruct that trope. [/tvtropes]
    also, this week's ToC is crazy-bananas. Neither Naruto nor Toriko in top 5, gintama down near bottom 5, and AssClass beats One Piece. Can't say any of this is worrying or super meaningful, but it's still pretty unusual.

    Gah! Hisashi Sasaki just revealed that Nise Koi will be the series added to Shonen Jump Alpha in two weeks. Really, really surprised. I think it is a good thing that Viz is showing they don't mind picking up series once they prove successful, but, there is another bigger and more recent success, Assassination Classroom. Don't know if anyone mentioned it, but the first volume sold over 120,000 units! http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news...-29-november-4

    I definitely want to see a the broad genres Jump has in Japan reflected in alpha, but it is rather strange to choose a RomCom four volumes in, than the more action and dark, which totally sells in America, series. I wouldn't be surprised to see them announce Assassination Classroom in the furture though...... Just hoping something like Shueisha asking them to turn out their pockets for it isn't the reason they aren't doing it.....and yeah...I know they are basically the same company....just make the metaphor applicable to royalties or whatever.

    I also thought Hungry Joker had a chance since it would come out two weeks right after its Japanese publication, but I am guessing it is pretty much shot now. I definitely am for Alpha going back and picking up the series that proved successful, but I do hope they start series at the same time with Japan as well.

    So given this week is a break, that means 4 chapters of One Piece (5 if you include an early release but 3 weeks of nothing after)?

    Five for us. Remember, we get nearly a week early.

    spoiler/scanlation wise, you should expect:

    OP 689: 11/19 - 11/20
    OP 690: 11/27 - 11/28
    OP 691: 12/4 - 12/5
    OP 692: 12/11 - 12/12
    OP 693: 12/17 - 12/18 (A day early due to Sat release day - small chance of 12/15-16)

    OP 694: 12/25 - 1/2 (Jump comes out Friday, 1/4 - the timing of when it will reach bookstores is unpredictable, due to combination of weekends AND holidays. As usual most likely very early instead of late though, so they can make sure it's in circulation)

    Since 6/7 double (OP 694) will probably hit very early, there will be nearly a three week gap after it. Go forget about manga serialization for a month.

    Feels like an RPM just hit me in the gut in full force. Yep, that's nomanga syndrome.

    It's painful, but I have Real, Gintama, Kuroko and Shingeki no Kyojin to catch up, so I think I'll be fine this year.

    Ouch, but I nearly always have manga to catch up with at these times, plus I do actually have loads of writing typing to catch up with.

    Makes me sad to see cross manage so low...
    Would be even sadder if this gets axed before kurogane which is just plain boring...

  13. #4333

    Default Re: Weekly Shonen Jump TOC

    Hmm Bleach jumped slightly upwards (really hoping for it to hit bottom 5...urgh why hasn't it yet?); Toriko also climed upwards (jumping from fifth to first place in rank). However, Date-senpai took a significant plunge since the previous week.

    A real shame about Cross Manage, but I don't think it will last very long. At least Koisome Momiji is gone...good riddance. Going to keep an eye on Hungry Joker and see if it will suffer the same fate as Bulge.

    Kiruko-san is olev cute, but the male protagonist is too unlikable a scum.
    I'll probably keep browsing it just for adorable Kiruko-san.

    Got a question. To my knowledge, these rankings are meant to represent chapters that are eight weeks old, correct? If so, how are newer series like Cross Manage ranked? I mean Manage is only about ten or so chapters in at this point, but I've seen it ranking in the bottom five for the better part of a month.

    Randomly .

    There is probably some organisation in it though as the second chapter of AssClass was around the front few pages whereas the second chapter of Takamagahara was dead last, that can't just be a coincidence

  18. #4338

    Default Re: Weekly Shonen Jump TOC

    Well, when a series starts out the first eight chapters are unranked. Once it hits Chapter 9, it starts counting the results from eight weeks ago. Hence, Chapter 9 is when a series starts getting ranked.
    I'm pretty sure those first eight chapters are just randomly placed, unless it's the first chapter then it's on the cover.
    I'm sure Aohige can explain it better.

    By the way OmegaSplash, put Assassination Classroom on WMR. It deserves it.
