Bleach wasn't exactly "cancelled" they were sick of making fillers basically. Once the manga is almost over, I can almost guarantee it's gonna be back. I believe the last episode ended with something like "see you again sometime" or something along those lines.

Well in Japan Toriko has stepped up to the plate. At least with anime popularity. Manga wise, Hunter X Hunter sells a million ever volume so it matches Naruto in that department and surpasses it in anime popularity in Japan at least. Step out of the Jump realm and Attack on Titan is bigger the all three I just mentioned in terms of per volume manga sales. Game sales it's actually the old big 3 D.O.N. In terms of worldwide popularity it's still the current 3 and will be for some time. Who will replace the big 3 in the next few years? Toriko and hopefully some new blood.

As long as they avoid the problems that has plagued these past few gens of Shonen. In terms of manga avoid long hiatus, crappy drawing and plot devices. In terms of anime avoid filler, flashbacks and excessive use of stills. For games there need to be less cash outs like copy and paste fighters and more labors of love.

In a perfect world every series would get the FMA treatment and be good in all 3 departments.

Even though Bleach suffers from crappy writing, crappy characters, crappy art work outside of characterizations (which is starting to blend with each new character introduced as well), and some of the most boring and forced "drama" ever shoved out there? Okay, what ever floats your boat. XD

The bigger shame is that Bleach blew its load after Soul Society ended. Everything that happened in the first two arcs was pretty great.

Anyway, The Big Three....... Naruto is pretty god awful right now. Thank the lord that it is going to be ending soon as well. I don't think I can take much more of the crap that is going on in that series. Used to love it, but it hasn't been good since the Naruto and Pain fight. Everything since then has been one disaster after another in writing, character implosion, and stupid plot twist after stupid plot twist. I just want it to end at this point.

Then we have One Piece...... the best of the three in all categories. Most consistently good, has the best humor, the best story, the best characters, and is all around more enjoyable to read.

With that said I think that SKET Dance would be another candidate maybe?


Sket Dance has already ended, too, actually. The ones that will probably take Naruto and Bleach's spot will be Toriko for sure, then possibly Gintama?

Out of all the big three I enjoyed Bleach the most (I also like its op's the most). Out of Naruto and One Piece, I can't really decide what I like more, back when I was watching One Piece non-weekly (as in I hadn't reached most recent ep yet and was practically marathoning it) I enjoyed it the most, but the same could be said for Naruto. Right now I watch One Piece on Sundays and I can't help but be amazed by how shit is it in every regard, this could be because I watch Hunter X Hunter right after it though and it's subject to direct comparison.

And I can't understand why.
It's basically One Piece, but with hunt for food instead of the One Piece :P

Ok I guess I can understand it. Since One Piece is so big, an anime that basically is the same will of course be popular too. And Toriko has better art work, quality.

Toriko to me seemed to have a stupid plot. But if itsl ike One Piece where there just looking for the ultimate food. I guess I got to give it a try

Bleach's manga is still going it's getting better and I'm sort of a fan but it's been mid tear since the soul society arc ended. Hopefully the last arc gets animated.
Naruto was amazing but now it's just terrible and a former shell of itself I'm still reading because I don't want to waste all the time I did spend on it.
One Piece is the second best manga of all time and my favorite it does everything right with very few faults it got me back into anime and manga.
Toriko is becoming one of my favorites and I'm exited for its future I hope it soon gets the popularity it deserves and saves shonen
Hunter X Hunter IS the best shonen of all time no doubt hopefully it begins again soon so the pain will end.

Fairy tail just sucks so bad it's painful in my opinion why read this garbage when there is what I posted above it's even worse than naruto and that's saying something. It's just my opinion you can like it if you do I won't blame you but I just find it bad.

Woah, woah, woah. Hold up... Now, to be fair, I have not seen or read Hunter X Hunter, but better than Rurouni Kenshin? I mean, Rurouni Kenshin was perfection in every single way story wise, character growth wise, and everything else wise. XD And that is just dealing with Jump. FMA: Brotherhood is a Shonen series, too.

Fairy Tail is just a fun series. Granted, the last arc was pretty weak, but I think it will pick up again. What makes me a fan of Fairy Tail are the characters and their interactions with each other. Everyone is pretty likable overall, and the action is some of the best in the genre. It doesn't drag and it can be amazing. The biggest problem with it at this point is the outrageous amount of fan service that has been plaguing the series the last few months....

I wonder if these animes will even end. They're making so much dough off these animes that it's not even funny.

I think Gintama would be up there since it's very popular in Japan except for that tiny problem of it not returning after they announced the latest movie would be its last animation. Or so they say...

Read or watch HxH it is by far the best series I've seen and I'm a huge FMA fan myself. I've seen some Kenshin and liked it but HxH is my favorite by far it's just amazing. HxH literally has every single thing that makes shonen great in it. I've watched around 12 episodes of Fairy Tail and didn't like it. That being said I don't like fan service and find it weird if it had less fan service it would be alot better in my opinion.
