Japanese Fans Pick Their Top 5 "Weekly Shōnen Jump" Gag Manga

500 otaku pick their favorites from a list of 48 possible titles in recent online poll

A recent online poll on Goo Ranking asked Japanese fans to pick their favorite gag manga that have been serialized in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump manga magazine, and from a list of 48 possible titles, 5 gut-busting gag manga emerged victorious. The top 5 results were as follows:



05.) Magical Taluluto, by Tatsuya Egawa. (38 votes)



04.) Pyu to Fuku! Jaguar, by Kyosuke Usuta. (42 votes)



03.) Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo, by Yoshio Sawai. (56 votes)



02.) Gintama, by Hideaki Sorachi. (67 votes)



01.) Dr. Slump, by Akira Toriyama. (106 votes)


The poll ran from September 08 - 13, 2016, and some 500 fans responded. The voting demographics were evenly split between 250 men and 250 women in their Twenties and Thirties, so nostalgia may have played a larger factor than youth. Still, I'm glad to see Dr. Slump continues to be appreciated after all these years.
