    Each issue of Weekly Jump comes with a poll entry slip where you vote for the three(?) chapters in that issue you liked the best, which also makes you enter a raffle for some prizes. The results of these polls are then used to determine the TOC/popularity list of the issue 8 weeks from then. Since Weekly Jump is primarily aimed at the Males 8-15 (or whatever it was), the data submitted from this demographic is taken into consideration more than that from others.

    Smug dude consealing white and orange kind of arabic getup, some weird ghost with big balls around his neck. Meh, the smug face has too much smugness like "Oh, how small are you!", and I still resent shaman king to get up happy with another ghost series.

    Seems like a supernatural series with the wrong protagonist.

    Pretty weird style, but not that original, seems like when in anime they don't draw right the faces for comedy. Strong girl, afraid dude, "regular" atires. Seems like a Succesor manga about a dude that's forced by the girl to fill some roll, maybe in a dojo. Or that's a trap? It has a very flat chest..

    Plain dude, energetic and supernatural-conected girl. The girl seems to draw power from her millenium hat, milenium trident and milenium scarf holder. An exorcist perhaps? The dude gets dragged as a tagalong with the girl as the focus of the action, but not the protagonist? I could read that, if the boy doesn't keep the "Reborn protagonist" face all the time.

    It's that a tennis racket? The guy is an alien? 3rd rock from the sun in manga? If this is comedic oriented tennis manga, I could give it a read..

    I don't know why but I think that i hate him.

    The red kimono, the peace sign while holding a stone sing, the flag, the smile, the hair thingy. I want to get away from this Ed wanabee inuyasha cosplayer as soon as possible.

    The authors need to research more ways to make Iwase bitchy. She's losing her edge lately.

    shoudn't we also look at average TOC ranking over a period of time (example 10 weeks) to better judge the recent popularity of the mangas? I saw these kind of average ranking before, I assumed originally posted by some random japanese dudes

    The only really cool thing is Sket, technically, is in 5th. (and it's got a color next week) That and...even though we had been dancing about it's collapse the last few weeks, Bleach is back up in 2nd...yeah, less said the better.

    It would be cool to see Bleach collapsing, but its one of the big 3 so its never going to get cancelled, even if the ranks are low. Remember the last ranks of HxH they were horrible, but WSJ will never cancel it, cause it selling better then the most WSJ series.

    I would love to see Bleach in total collapse mode but the problems are multiple:

    -Kubo has been in the magazine with this series for so long it's hard to kick him out
    -This series has fans...and they're devoted no matter how putrid it gets.
    -The anime. I keep saying it but an anime only helps a series remain relevant and Pierrot just doesn't have the guts to cut the head.
    -It keeps selling volumes.

    If something finally changes allowing for things to collapse, then it would all be for the better...but until that happens, we're stuck with it.

    Nice Sket Dance is high.

    Too bad the chapters are really behind.

    So devoted that they will say drawing backgrounds in an emotional scene would distract from the characters .

    Not making it up either .

    Bleach itself is a cute little misfit , and it's fun to watch and see how it never goes anywhere , but the fans who are saying it's good because it doesn't feature visuals , in a visual medium , are just too much .

    All I wonder is what caused it to shoot up like that. Probably tits... goddamn is that sad.

    Really though, what Bleach has are fans of pretty people. They don't care if they undergo hardships or deal with the validity of their values and ethics, so long as they look pretty doing it. If they're in a fight, they have to be in a pretty fight. If they're sick, they have to look pretty sick. If they take a shit, a bouquet of flowers needs to come out with it. When that's all a fanbase needs, then unfortunately, that series won't be taking too many hits unless some absolutely massive bullshit goes down.

    Jaguar's still here to stay though! Hurray!

    Jaguar is Jaguar. That, KochiKame and HxH are essentially mainstays who are immune to such things as ranks. (that reminds me: I need to get to KochiKame vol. 3 someday)
