Does anyone know if Weekly Young Jump ranks their titles similarly to Weekly Shounen Jump? Their website has a static ToC for titles on the site, so it doesn't appear to be of much help. And they don't show the ToC for each issue on their site AFAIK. Although it is notoriously hard to navigate.

Now that Issue #16 has officially been released, it turned out that the ToC leaks did not mention that The Story of Isobe Isobee has a center color page in Issue #16. Also, according to the English version of Weekly Shonen Jump, Toriko will be absent in issue #17.

It's kinda funny because there were changes for two issues in recent times after the leak now.

Hmm... What's up with Bleach and Kuroko no Basuke not having a ranking? Since they're color pages.

I always thought that since mangas get a lead color/center color they always don't get ranked. Well that's my viewpoint based on what I've seen in the past.

That's probably it... Yeah, because getting color pages determines your place in the magazine, and usually the order of the placement ranks from popular at the front to not so popular in the back. that would make sense.

If they go with what they usually do then, probably it will get cancelled during the next round of serializations.

I was curious why it was so low in the ranks, considering that the actual design/artwork was pretty good. I broke my code of honor and read it on an app on my tablet...

I fully understand now why it gets such low rankings.

I won't say it's bad, and the story itself isn't bad... it just has horrible pacing. It's only chapter 10 on the app and I feel like the author is treating it like we've already fallen in love with the characters and that there is something that we should be caring about... but in honesty there was hardly any effort to develop the characters or portray them as someone we should care about. And the artwork is good, but the panels just don't have any flow to them. It honestly felt that every... single... panel had a dialogue balloon in it. Hopefully this guy's editor will work with him and get his pacing straight, improve his characters, and help him find a way to improve his panel layouts in a way that will work. He has a lot of potential (I thought the Iron Knight design was completely bad ass), he just needs to fix some pretty big flaws. But I'm hoping to see more of his work.

Is Shokugeki no Soma really that good...
Seems like a lot of hype around that series... I'll admit the artwork is pretty good...

I think the artwork is digital (can't say for sure, but it looks like it).

It's definitely... different, and I can see why it would be a hit in Japan. Doesn't really seem like a Jump series though.

I have a question. Naruto was absent during the week of the latest ranking if the 8-week rule is followed, so shouldn't it be absent from the ranking this week ? Another list a saw has it this way.

On the Shokugeki discussion, I thought it looked like it was all about the looks and not the story. I read the first few chapters and hated it. I later gave it another chance and was really glad I did. The story is actually really good, especially the further you get into it. I'd say read to chapter 15 - 20 before you make your decision. It's a lot better than the first chapters make it seem

My bad. Somehow I overlooked that Naruto was absent in issue #10.
