Now that I think about the top runner for replacing bleach is fairy tail because I have already heard people saying that fairytail is already one of the big three so I would assume fairytail

Fairytail has the power to become a member. But without three, you can't really call it the big 3 anymore, now can you? The third seat is ripe for the taking. Not that I care. I acknowledge One Piece as well researched, but I dislike the style so I never got more than a few episodes in. Bleach I long dropped, and it's killing itself finely anyways. (I kept up with summaries to get a good laugh, but when even that gave me a headache...fullbringer arc im looking at you ) Naruto. Well Naruto became DBZ, and I haven't kept up since Madara was still vsing the 4 kages. Kind of like the three Abyssal ones in Claymore lol.

Plenty of anime has always captivated me without the big three, and it'll stay that way. This season I already have 6 I have a huge investment in, and I doubt any of them will last more than 12-25 episodes, yet I'm much happier watching them than the so called big three.

I would say AoT, only because it pretty much fulfills the airing on TV and huge manga sales slots. Fairy Tail would probably qualify internet-popularity wise, and sells pretty well, but is probably too fanservicey to gain any real traction with a TV network.

going by just manga sales I think the big three is now:
1.AOT
2.One Piece
3.Kuroko

Obviously you need to factor in anime, merchandise etc. In which case Naruto would probably sneak back in.

Magi and Fairy Tail I believe are the biggest of the rest.

Yeah going by Jump sales it's One Piece, Kuroko and Naruto... One the first HxH volume gets dropped it'll be OP, KuroBaske and HxH.

For all those saying that SnK COULD make it as part of the """big 3""" is a no. It is popular.... However, the mangaka did say he was only going make 24 volumes. That's it.

Hunter x Hunter and KuroBasu is a maybe and Reborn was close to make it up there. Who knows.

24 Volumes = 5-6 chapters a volume a typical anime episode consist of around 2-3 chapters. so I mean 72 episodes is eh, def not a big three. Obviously since it wasn't even a good anime.
