Random end of the year thought on some WSJ series:
One Piece: When the 2010 sales figures were announced back a few weeks ago I thought this might be OP's peak year and things will cool down a bit from here on; But with Movie 11 and New World coming, it might just be able to continue its glorious domination.
Naruto: Never cared much about it, and indeed for a while I enjoyed hating on it due to Narutards. But I have started paying more attention lately and found it mildly interesting. At this point I just want a conclusion. But that will likely take more than another ~50 chapters so ending is for 2013 I guess.
Toriko: Its place as one of the Big 3 seems to be official now (ofc the whole "Big 3" deal was never official in the first place) but IMO not secured yet. The past few small arcs, while I personally like them, haven't been too exciting overall and the author needs to pull another major arc for it to be the true #3. The future is bright, but now is not the time to get comfortable.
Nisekoi: Kinda surprised to see this series on WSJ, it really feels more like a 2nd-tier love/harem anime that pops up for one season then forgotten by everyone. IMO WSJ hasn't had a compelling love manga since forever and we will see if this one is still around this time next year.
Beelzebub: For a short period I thought this was gonna be WSJ's next big hit, up there with Toriko. Then a few months ago I gradually lost interests, it has too many gags and lacks other elements of a classic shonen to become a lasting hit. (Look at Fairy Fail's sales success and realize no matter how cliche, those formulaic elements sell) The latest chapter really makes it look like it's getting canned, yet its anime is still going and its volumes sell decently (15th place in 2011 ranking), so I have really no clue where this series is going.
Kurogane: My favorite 2011 new series, not because it's awesome or different, I just personally like it. Plus, I think WSJ can use another sport manga.
Gintama: Mixed feelings. It's generally done its job of providing some mindless fun but sometimes the jokes go overboard. Maybe the author should push forward the main plot (if one can say there is one) a bit too in 2012.
Bleach: I take it back about Gintama, this is where truly mixed feelings lie man. I'd laugh like a maniac and praise the justice of the manga God if this series gets cut like it deserves since forever. But on the other hand, I love hating it so much (though recently Fairy Fail has become a contender too), it might just get wee bit lonely when it finally goes the way of the dodo.
Medaka Box: I admit, I have only read the first 20 or so chapters before I cried about my time wasted and I have heard its reputation of… course changing, so things might be different now. But still, why is this series still around?! getting an anime next year no less?!
Kochi Kame: Even if a nuclear war happens WSJ editors will put future ideas in a time capsule so that the series can continue in a post-apocalypse world, so yea…
Kuroko no Basket: "I'mma let yo finish but Slam Dunk is the best basketball manga of ALL TIME…"
Katekyō Hitman Reborn: Never cared about it, seemingly always get low ranks but apparently a yaoi fangirl favorite and therefore still going strong?
Magico: Liked the first few chapters but dropped afterwards, holds nothing against it, hope it does well.
HunterxHunter: IMO Togashi nowadays is overrated and I have little respect for him for his laziness and lack of enthusiasm. Still though, the series has admittedly been interesting since the hiatus.
Kagami no Kuni no Harisugawa: Same deal with Magico, dropped but wish it luck. Apparently things don't look so good for it again, God I feel sorry for this author, this is what, his 4th work getting axed by WSJ now?
Nurarihyon no Mago: Apparently same deal as Reborn.
