    I've heard it suggested that it'll be HxH coming out of hiatus and being put into English Shonen Jump. To be honest I have mixed feelings about the second if it comes to pass

    During the first week of Shuiesha's Jump Live campaign they released the first page of every chapter next week to those who participated. So for a good amount of time, the only thing being discussed in the spoiler thread was the previously posted cover page featuring Carue and Vivi playing Tennis, and discussion pretty much gravitated to the lasciviousness of Vivi's Legs in the cover image.

    Needless to say, the spoiler thread was an even larger cesspool of disgust than usual.

    Yeah, no, I'm not skeptical about the announcement. Skeptical about Togashi wanting to go back to work this early. He'll probably just troll us with 5 chapters followed by another hiatus.

    His console is broken and he's waiting for it to be repaired. Of course he could buy a new one, but the old one's full of memories, created during blissful days of hiatus.

    Maybe he finished all the Dragon Quests and just didnt' want to play the online one.

    Of course the old one's better. It was crafted using Togashi's own nen.

    I have a quick question. If someone could answer, that would be great.
    Can manga volume be returned in japan? Are they usually returned?

    Book returns exist in Japan, so I don't know why would manga volumes be an exception. The thing is that it depends on the deal that the store did with the publisher for a given title.
    If you want to know for a given title, I don't know if anybody here knows but maybe Greg, or Aohige might know.

    ^so a manga buyer can return the book after buying it and removing the shrink wrap?

    I'm currently in a discussion with someone if One Piece sold at least 10 million per year pre-2008.
    He keeps insisting that the return rate is 40% (2012-2013 data) and that the overstock rate is 25-30%.
    OP has 130mil circulation in 2007. I underestimate the actual sale to be 30% below circulation number and divide that by 10 years. The chance of OP selling at least 10 mil in one year during 1998-2007 is pretty high. But he still denies the math.

    Edit: all of his sources are post-2008. He even uses google trend (starts in 2004) as an indication that OP did not sell over 10mil/year in at least one year pre-2008.

    he talks about bookstores returns. A standard buyer cannot return a book unless he sales it for second hand market.

    But does he actually believe that one piece sold less than 90million copies out of its 130mil circulation?
    40% return rate + 25-30 overstock = publisher must be really stupid if they were to over print something by that amount. I don't think OP is a manga that would have 40% return rate and the overstock will sooner or later be sold.

    You're talking of ANN Attack on Titan conversation right? I was in that conversation. In reality it was I that first said that he was wrong, but he doesn't listen so I gave up on the conversation.
    A return rate of 40%(So in average every store don't sell 40% of the volumes, right?), when One Piece has a print of 130 Million means that One Piece is a HUGE FAILURE. Which enterprise would accept 52 Million returns? And which store would keep buying volumes of a title that make them return 40% of that title inventory? Well, I don't know a lot about the business but If I was a store owner I wouldn't keep buying One Piece volumes. Even because I heard a store receives like 35% per every book sold(It was like author receives 10%, publisher receives 30%, store 35% and book production and distribution 25%), this was in some ANN news. So if that is true, doesn't that mean that I would lose money instead of earn?

    A manga buyer? I would most certainly say NO. After is bought is bought. Even if the store accepts a return, the store would just put it again on sale. Does One Piece books in Japan are wrapped up? Most books, and manga, that I buy in stores, here in Portugal, aren't wrapped up. And most stores don't accept normal returns. If you can prove that the thing that you're returning was damaged in any way, and it wasn't made by you, than every store should accept it, and the store than returns it to the publisher, but I don't believe that 52 Million books of One Piece were damaged in fabrication, distribution or in the store.
