>Thought I would start a weekly thread discussing the current rankings of WSJ.

The ranking system is based on what order the manga comes in the magazine, but it excludes those that are given colour pages as Shueisha places them in specific locations regardless of their popularity.

There is also an 8 week delay from when the readers fill out the survey for that issue to when the results are obtained

Volume 21 (20-4-2015)
1. Boku no Hero Academia
2. Assassination Classroom
3. Toriko
4. Shokugeki no Soma
5. Black Clover
6. Gintama
7. World Trigger
8. Hinomaru Zumou
9. PSI Kusuo Saiki
10. Kochikame
11. Ultra Battle Satellite* (First time ranking)
12. Gakkyuu Houtei
13. Kaizou Ningen Roggy
14. Takujou no Ageha

Cover & Lead Colour Page: Nisekoi
Colour Page: Haikyuu!!
Colour Page: Haeniwa no Zig Zag (Oneshot)
Colour Page: Kagamigami
Absent: One Piece & Bleach

I just wanna see PSI Kusuo Saiki canceled. It has no bearing ranking so high consistenlty for such a shitty gag manga.
>>
>>124334913
>Chitoge on the cover
>there are people who seriously think she won't win
>>
>>124334938
Chitoge is definetly gunna win, she's the mascot of the series and was also a support character in J-Stars
>>
What even is Hinomaru Zumou I dropped it after chapter 1 why would a naked muscle baby boy ever be a popular protagonist
>>
>>124334913
>Thought I would start a weekly thread discussing the current rankings of WSJ.
Take that shit to livejournal or something
>>
>2015
>determining popularity by reader mail and surveys

goddamn offline publishing is so shitty it can't die soon enough
>>
>>124334929
It's the type of humor the Japanese love. Saiki is a tsukkomi among tsukkomi.

>>124334938
>>124334983
>Still reading Nisekoi
I know you're entitled to watch whatever you want, but you're just hurting yourselves doing this.

The funny part is that it's not even the romance part that angers me. It's that we have yet another series where the leads are the heirs to the mafia, but don't actually partake in mafia shenanigans. Just like fucking Reborn.

I just want my Godfather manga, damn it.

>>124334913
>Uzumaki's still on the cover page
What a surprise
>>
>>124335865
Shonen Jump is very much centered around Darwinian evolution. Only the strong survive, and they certainly can't waste magazine space seeing if series like Cyborg Roggy and Gakyuu Hotei can become fan favorites after 50+ chapters.

That said, mail and surveys aren't even the main focus for Jump. To Love Ru did horribly in ratings because nobody wanted to admit to reading it, but the tabonokon sold like hotcakes.

American comics have the same problem, where any Big 2 series that isn't immediately popular is often thrown wayside. Which is why the rise of independent publications and webcomics is so vital for both comic markets alike. One Punch Man is a good start, but we need more.
>>
>>124334913
>10. Kochikame
Still going strong, I see.
>>
>>124334938
Its just the constant denial of the waifufags
Well that's how waifu war works anyways
>no ending
>she's not gonna win!!!
>>
>>124336032
It's the Japanese Simpsons. It'll go strong forever, until the author dies. And even then, another will take his place.

Funny how there's been only, what, 20 chapters translated?
>>
>>124335875
>It's that we have yet another series where the leads are the heirs to the mafia, but don't actually partake in mafia shenanigans

Literally the only reason I picked it up. 167 chapters of pure disappointment.
>>
>>124334913
>11. Ultra Battle Satellite* (First time ranking)
Hopefully it won't be axed. R-right?
>>
>>124334913
How did OP and Bleeh rank when they were in? top 3?
>>
>>124336683
One Piece usually ranks top 3 and normally get the Cover page once a week.
Bleach usually ranks 7-10 range.

Judging from this the current "big 3" are
One Piece
Assassination Classroom
Boku no Hero

Thats assuming Boku no Hero can retain its current popularity for the next 100 chapters or so and gets a good anime series.

>hopefully it won't be pushed so hard for summerslam like Toriko was.

It's a bit of a mix. If you have good tankoban sales, shitty rankings don't mean as much. Good enough sales and they don't matter at all. The reverse is also true, if a series has shitty sales but great rankings, they'll keep it around as obviously it's one of the reasons people are picking up the magazine in the first place.

>>124334938
He didn't read Ichigo 100%
>>
>>124337277
Exception of the rule.
>>
>>124336842
>>One Piece usually ranks top 3 and normally get the Cover page once a week.

So One piece always gets the color page?
>>
>>124337388
My bad I meant to say once a month

So its normaly at the front of the magazine

To be fair nearly all the covers of Ichigo 100% had both girls on display unlike Nisekoi.
>>
>>124334913
does anyone like that piece of shit show toriko?
>>
>>124334929
Have you read it? I've only seen the first 26 chapters scanlated?
>>
What's that new series with the semen demen on the top?
>>
>Toriko above Gintama
Wait what the fuck?
>>
>>124336842
>hopefully it won't be pushed so hard for summerslam like Toriko was.
Basically, one crossover.
>>
>>124338262
>Crossover with OnePiece for its first episode
> The Gintama and Sket Dance crossover parodying the gintama onepiece crossover
>Another crossover with onepiece and dragonball of all things.

it was being shoved down everyones throat as the new Dragon Ball

>>124338170
Toriko gets really erratic rankings, its last ranking was 9 then 3 and then 9 again
>>
>>124337756
Oneshot.
>>
>>124334913
Chitoge looks cute in this
>>
Number 1 Girls
>>
>1. Boku no Hero Academia
>2. Assassination Classroom
>4. Shokugeki no Soma
>6. Gintama
>7. World Trigger

I'm okay with this.
>>
>>124335544
maybe that's why it sells so little
but zumou is good, keep reading
>>
>>124334913
>Absent: One Piece
This pleases me.
>>
>>124334913
Toriko is more popular than I expected.

semen demon manga starting next week
>>
>>124336559
Reeeeeaaaaally bad start. Basically, if it won't improve it will be axed right after Gakyou Houtei and/along Roggy (Ageha just ended)
>>
>>124340971
WHAT IS THIS?
>>
>>124341702
Lady Justice
>>
>>124342026
>Lady Justice
Elaborate.
>>
>>124340824
that's because it's a parody of most shonen. even the colors of the characters recall those of dragonball and such. It's just funny to read, nothing to take that much seriously
>>

Is Hero Academia worth giving a shot? I like the artstyle.
>>
>>124342662
That depends on how low you're willing to go.
>>
>>124342662
i think it's shit. but it's just my opinion
>>
>>124342662
Its top notch.

Its a large cast shonen where most if not all are likeable.

>>124339485
^ None of these girls are annoying or whiny like Sakura or Orihime
>>
>>124342897
Nah, the majority that reads knows it's pretty bad but somewhat entertaining. I personally think that it's neither, but they are trying too hard to push an average series like they did with Toriko.
>>
>>124342662
It's nothing special.
I think it's fun. It follows the standard tropes, sure, but it's not obnoxious about it and it's pretty clear that the author enjoys what he's doing.
>>
>>124342662
It's fun with a stronger start than most battle manga
>>
>>124342977
>the majority that reads knows it's pretty bad
I don't get that impression at all.
>>
>>124341702
Ero Battle Manga inspired by Kamen Rider and amecomi about a top-of-the-class, elegant cool beauty that has to wear slutty costumes to fight evil in over-the-top battles with OP powers. She has a sidekick-ish geek boy that helps her.
>>
>>124342977
Nobody that reads it thinks it's bad.

>>124343107
>Lady Justice
>Abilities:
>Super-strength
>Super-speed
>Energy projection

>Weaknesses:

>>124343107
that sounds like a disaster, something like Medaka Box

if it has good humour outside of the obvious nosebleeds then it might be worth
>>
>>124343219
It's probably trying to fill the Medaka Box gap. I mean, there are no other lewd mangas with a girl lead in Jump right now. The one-shot had pretty good buzz when it was published last year but that probably doesn't mean much considering stuff like Nisekoi.

That almost never happens.
>>

TLRs prime audience don't participate in JUMP polls, its the same as other fanservice laden manga like DNA2 and Ichigo 100% in which they always did poor in rankings but good in sales.
>>
>>124335875

Isn't Gangsta mafia shenanigans?

Ningen Roggy will definetly be cancelled before the summer ends. Its Hungry Joker all over again
