I wish I had recently read anything as good as Vagabond or Hajime no Ippo or the Battle Royale manga but, sadly, most of the newer stuff has not been as good to me. I think, surely, out of all of the new series that are sure to come out once Naruto and Bleach end something will be really good. It is about time for something epic. Kingdom and Berserk and Vagabond are still epic to me but they are not new at all. Ippo has been really good lately but it has been going on for 24 years so...

I find it's mostly the older titles that have been going on for at least 8 to 10 years are the better ones because they've had time to pick up their feet and get moving.

Well, if Yoshihiro Togashi came back to Hunter x Hunter and kept with it for 1-2 years straight people will be shocked by the results.

I personally think something in the vein of fairy tail would be awesome. Jump hasn't really had a hardcore fantasy for a while that I can remember. I think it could work out well.

Even outside that aspect, I agree with you that most series aren't really aiming for top, their aiming for not being cancelled and that's why they keep getting canceled.

I made this thread because I'm working on a submission for the shonen jump's international competition, and I want to know at least what America would like.




There's too much ecchi in Fairy Tail for it to hit the big three. Honestly since the big mangas mostly touch the widest array of audience, it also has to be acceptable and appropriate for the average Shonen jump reader, meaning the young teenager. Fairy Tail isn't get anywhere imo, there's some chapters where it's only ecchi.

Don't get the wrong idea, I'm a big fan of seinen and I have been reading gory animes with plenty of ecchi and rape and other nasty shit like Gantz, Zetman, Berserk, etc.. But putting any hope in Fairy Tail taking the place of either Naruto or Bleach is beyond hopeless. Sorry that's the truth.

I didn't necessarily mean a carbon copy of Fairy Tail. It was just the first that came to my mind in the "fantasy" genre. One Piece and Naruto could definitely count too, since they take place in a world with a different set of laws and systems than our own (not just a "different earth"). A lot of the Shonen Jump series nowadays seem to be staying pretty close to home, aka "being on earth". I'd like to see another series that takes place in a different world that comes completely from the authors imagination.

Not sure what is right new on the manga scene that can take the place of any of the heavy hitters. But if we look at trends, usually something right out of the blue, and not an established series is what becomes the new hot piece. The established ones will not really be earning any new fan base so will sorta hold their positions.

If we look at the current direction of action style anime, the newer trend is the technic style. Shows based in a familiar setting, but with some sort of applied technology. I would like to think that some sort of militaristic battle series. AoT could fall into this category. The minimech style as well, is a new well written one comes up could take the place. I am not expecting any new fantastical supercharacter along one piece or bleach to really come in and take the stage by storm. It is pretty flooded and no new champs have shown up for a while.

Light Novels are the biggest thing now not manga
so they might end up being more people reading then drawing
plus light novels have dedicated such great series
SAO might just become the next big thing

Nanatsu no Taizai, aka the Seven Deadly Sins
This manga's potential is truly remarkable, seriously.
