What are your opinions on Shounen Jumps future, after it's biggest title ever has concluded?
Do you think another title could come that become even more popular than One Piece?
Or is Black Clover and probably another title (Because MHA is probably going to over by then, since it's only going to be around 400 chapters) going to take over?
Can we expect some new titles, that don't necessarily follow the Shounen format and break the Cliches and is it even possible to come up with something new, that hasn't been explored yet?

What do you guys think?
Of course it's all just speculation but that is the point, it's fun speculating and maybe see some things become reality

Probably not, given that it is Shounen Jump...

I expect some other long lasting series where a young(ish) boy goes on some sort of journey, either metaphorically, physically, or both, and discovers that true strength is found through friendship and belief in yourself. Perhaps set in a fictionalized fantasy world, like an Earth blown up to giant proportions by some sort of extraterrestrial parasite chef.

there are things much longer than one piece, just thought I'd point that out.

but thanks to other titles they have established they won't go broke any time soon if the creator's of one piece finally surrenders making money and new episodes.

they also have their paws in hunter x hunter, MHA, Boruto, and Gintama to name the most popular at the moment, so, yeah no problems for them any time soon. and since they are affiliated with viz, seriously no problems at all. source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weekly_Sh%C5%8Dnen_Jump

Yeah I was wondering about that. It seems like it would be really bad in terms of sales for WSJ if One Piece ended, as that is and has been their main source of attraction for a long time. Maybe if they can get Oda to do another series right away it would keep people interested lol, I don't know if he's ever said anything about that or not. Otherwise, I guess they'll just have to rely on their up-and-coming manga to keep them afloat.

I doubt the formula of the manga themselves will change all that much.
