    Some of the latest arcs (mainly the comedic ones) felt flat, and reused plots that have been done to death.

    I was always hoping Gintama would last until the end of time, given the nature of the series. It's really time to put it to rest.

    So are we talking about a soonish ending or about a Naruto/Bleach ending arc that last for a couple years?

    We'll know when it starts. Gintama arcs usualy don't last more than 2 volumes, 3 if it overflows a bit.

    It could (should) go into a few comedic arcs, mainly to bring clousure to some of the supporting cast, and then during one of those arcs, BAM suddenly serious.

    Everything Kubo does has to be 100% Kubo, even if it's not intentional. Feels like one of his awkward foot cliffhangers.

    That being said, I'd like to watch The Act of Killing too. Cause he's talking about the Joshua Oppenheimer documentary, right?

    Hello. I'm gathering opinions on Viz's Weekly Shonen JUMP to convey to Shueisha.

    If you have any opinions regarding (but not limited to):

    General quality of publication
    Number of series published
    Quality of translation
    Ease of readability

    And of course, if you have any suggestions to improve the magazine, I'll pass them along as well.

    Thank you for your time!

    Oddly, Kubo's line is cut off.
    From the Japanese magazine, his full quote is:

    "I watched The Devil's Path and Act of Killing back-to-back. They were great, but they left me feeling depressed for an entire day."

    Not all series that sell decently in the collected volumes rank highly on the reader surveys. It's often an indication that the demographic buying the comics isn't the same as the one that reads the magazine. Or there was just a chapter or several that readers didn't like as much.

    (Semi-related: judging by TOC placement, the worst-rated chapter of Dragon Ball was the one starting off Goku's training arc with the Turtle Sage. It was a moment of transition, but eight weeks later, a series that was now receiving ever-greater attention and popularity thanks to its shift in focus to martial arts was almost at the bottom of the table of contents for that week.)

    I'd love to know more of the past of the magazine. Maybe doing something like Jump Back, but with more obscure series. Start with something known like Dr. Slump or Saint Seiya.

    Besides Ass Class, Hero Academy and Gintama, the english magazine already has my favorite series. (One Piece, Soma, Toriko... huh this gen isn't as interesting as when there were Medaka/Beelzebub/Bakuman/SketDance)

    I'm currently ilegaly paying the subscription through amazon, because I couldn't subcribe trhough the app store. None of the countries that I've been in the last few years have legal publications.

    The same with One Piece, I got it through Kindle because Amazon gave me more interesting purchase options.

    I enjoy the translation, Stephen does an excelent work, but he makes the OPPodcast an obligated hearing, as he doesn't use translation notes, certain stuff need to be explained. Not that I don't enjoy the OPP, but maybe a section at the end with the notes, specialy with the other series that must have similar stuff, but I don't care enough to go and hear a podcast about them.

    I really enjoy the publication, but I'd love more series. In particular I really want to see Boku no Hero Academia and Assassination Classroom in, although in general I'd love to see more series that were skipped over initially but turned out to be popular in Japan to get a chance. Jump Start was a great idea, but I hope that if a series is passed over then, but seems to get much better later on that it isn't ruled out for english jump. Translation quality is generally pretty great, and it's definitely pretty easy to read. I'd also love to see more one shots in the magazine, though of course that's secondary to new series. If adding many new series is too inconvenient due to royalties, I think myself and many others would be happy to pay an extra fee to get an expansion with more series. One thing I would like, though I'm not sure how feasible it is, is some sort of search feature to find which issue has a certain chapter, since I've had a few times where I've wanted to revisit an old chapter to find information or check how something was said, and it's a huge pain to search for a specific chapter. Also yeah, an occasional translation note wouldn't hurt. Perhaps they could even add a column explaining the quirks of certain translations. I know they have the learn random Japanese word column already (Can't remember it's exact name), but I think a column talking to the translators about their choices would still be really cool and informative

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    I should add that if I had to choose one series for them to add, it'd be boku no hero academia. I feel like it was passed over due to unfortunate timing with the jump start as well as low expectations coming off the author's past works, and I feel it definitely think it deserves to be given a chance, especially since it's already proven fairly popular on western scanlation sites (and for all the issues these present to the publishers, I think scanlation sites can be a good way to gauge interest and that ignoring their existence doens't really help them)
