Surprised at how well Yuna of Yuragi Manor seems to be doing, which has piqued my interest a bit. I wonder if there is more to it than the ecchi cliches that everybody's been going on about.

In all fairness, a considerable number of WSJ's readers tolerate, or even love, clichés. Just look at the rankings that Black Clover gets, and that series is basically cobbled together from the best bits of other shonens. In contrast, Gintama, which gets put on a pedestal on this site for being an anti-shonen of sorts, ends up all over the place.

I've read up to 7 translated chapter ( in Vietnamese if anyone asks) plus chapter 8 and 9 in Japanese and I want to point out something ( based on observation and opinion) .

The manga is episodic just like To Love Ru. The rank will vary chapter by chapter . To Love Ru debut at rank #5 (source: http://pharaodopazoplus.blogspot.com/p/weekly-shonen-jump-pure-rankings-2006.html)
The first couple chapters of To Love Ru rank were : 5, color page, 7, 9 ,7 ,9 ,6, 6 ,7 , colour page, 11,9 , 12, 11...

The art is good, however the comedies are cliches. But since the main heroine is a ghost, it has some funny element ( he went on a date with her, but no one can see her...)

Shokugeki's artist used to be an assistant for this guy, so you see resemble in their arts .

The casts are average (as in I see these type of support characters in a harem before ) .

The protagonist isn't like other harem protagonist, since he doesn't "like" anyone, and he isn't wimpy like Rito or Raku .

I think this series might be a high/okay sales low ranking series . This series might survive because diversity in the magazine .

I've seen Samon-kun getting some heat from western readers because the main male is too cruel, but his genuine dislike of Teshigawara (or at least his preconception of her) is what I find funny and refreshing about the series! It seems to be doing well enough in the polls nowadays, so I guess the Japanese readers feel differently...?

And as usual, happy to see Straighten Up! Holding steady ^^

With all these fake table of contents posts happening more frequently on 2ch, I'm thinking of just waiting until Monday to post the ToC when I get the issue, unless I see one that is completely trustworthy.

I think that is a good idea. Do you have any idea why it has been so frequent with the fakes lately?

If the edited version is correct this time, then wow World Trigger in 5th place. It's been doing quite well lately, since it's come off from being unranked (or at least, we assume it's just stopped being unranked). I hope this means that we might get a World Trigger colour page - as in an extra one to the anniversary page we're sure to get. Though I have the feeling that (spoilers for up till WT Ch.135)
