It's going to get a Jump Start in NA Jump under the title "The Promised Neverland".

I'm wondering if they'll skip Love Rush after the extremely negative reaction to E-Robot.

Really iffy about Promised Neverland since this kinda of premise just doesn't seem very shounen like.

They will probably skip it even though Love Rush is very lite ecchi, its a perfect replacement for Nisekoi.

I think Bleach will end in Issue #37, and Nisekoi in Issue #36! Am I right?! Since the new serials will come out in #35 (which replaces Mononofu), in #38, which will most likely is to replace Nisekoi and #39, which will take Bleach's spot! Which means that Bleach has to end before Issue #39! Is this way of thinking right?

From the sound of things, both will be ending in the double issue at the same time (2 more chapters each). Unless I misinterpreted something.

Damn, I'm worried about how Bleach is going to end. For such a long series I wish they would have had some extra end scenes, although maybe there will be some. It's happened for other manga. For Nisekoi, I wish they could have had some post-confession scenes too to show how everyone's life is.

Btw, idk if anyone pointed this out, but this is really a new Jump. The only manga with 5+ years of publishing are OP, Toriko, Bleach, Gintama and Kochikame right? (Very soon to be, only OP, Toriko, Gintama, Kochi.) That means about 60% is from the past 4 years. Do you think Jump is axing new series too much (like with Double Arts)? I haven't been following the whole Jump lineup for that long so I wouldn't know if they've increased the axing.

Also a little late to this, but what's your take on why Ass Class was so popular? I found it entertaining, but the art was average and the story wasn't really that original. Do you think the relatable classroom aspect of it made it a lot more engaging for Japanese students?

And I don't know if it's because I'm growing up or whatever, but One Piece, Bleach (when it was good) and Naruto (at times) were the bomb. Jump was always about Friendship Effort Victory but I guess in the new generations of kids we need even crazier concepts to draw readers and be interesting and stand out from the past manga. It's like going from Ashita no Joe to One Piece ... to ... what would the next evolution of manga even be?

Also, does anyone think that Food Wars is overrated? It's got amazing art (Tosh-sama delivers) but the characters are so flimsy, as in their personalities change at the whim of the author just to fulfill a needed stereotype for a certain arc. Like, the villains look extremely evil during their arc and after they're normal. And the president of the school was turned into a caring grandpa when his "imposing ver." wasn't needed anymore. And Erina basically had no development time to go from "I don't like you Soma" to "I hug pillows all the time". Personally I think the story is pretty weak and can't understand how it's doing so well.

1. Nisekoi will end in 2 chapters so at least we may get something?

2. It's just that they have less series to axed. In 2014 there were 16 new series, 2015 there were 13. In 2016 they have 4 right now. Haikyuu and Shokugeki have legs to run for 3-4 years at least.

3. Assassination Classroom is extremely popular toward kids. Plus it's from a successful author from Jump (Neuro: Supernatural Detective 2005-2009), and mass marketing when Shuiesha/ Jump saw its potential. It was popular before the anime, and the anime + movie boost it a little bit. First volume sold 275k, second volume jumped to 450k+.

4. Not really, new readers from Jump like Black Clover. It's a story about Friendship Effort Victory and it slowly becomes a hit in WSJ.

5. This will come from a Shokugeki fan so expect bias. I will try to stay neutral as possible.
Tsukuda's story telling is not that consistent in the long run. The first 120 chapters are really great in my opinion. You have rivals, a kinda unique MC. No Friendship Effort Victory, the art evolve in a rapid pace. But then come around 135+ and the story is really awkward.

The current arc is what I hope to go back to the same quality as the Tournament arc, but as of right now it is a disappointment and I know Tsukuda can do better than this. Art is still a plus though. Shokugeki is not overrated, it is still a niche series ( ecchi culinary cooking) manga. It will probably never be 800k-1 million seller like Assassination Classroom, Haikyuu, Kuroko no Basuke.

Well Gintama and Toriko will be leaving within the next 6 months - a year (for Gintama at least) leaving OP and Kochikame. Although Haikyuu, Saiki and Isobee will all be 5 years old by then. Axing is particularly low this year (but the aren't many new series) given big names are ending. In 2014 stuff was getting axed left and right, but this year it's just been Mononofu and Buddy Strike so far IIRC (+Bleach and Nisekoi if you want to count them).

I think AC is so popular because it attracts the female audience (like Haikyuu). I was recently in Japan and saw tonnes of females reading AC. And my host mothers favourite manga is Haikyuu (says it all). What other Jump series attract a large female audience ( OP, HXH are it really. Food Wars has a bit). Ie, the big series are the ones that attract reading from both genders equally, effectively doubling their potential audience.

I don't think Food Wars is overrated, just that it's passed its peak already. It's been pretty meh since the Autumn festival arc and lost a lot of steam with the last arc. It's picking up now, but it still miles away from how good it used to be. As someone above said, the author can do better, we just have to wait and hope he does so.

Well from the looks of it, the new big bosses of the NEW ERA JUMP will be Black Clover, Hinomaru Zumou and Boku no Hero Academia. If Kimetsu no Yaiba manages to reach 100 chapters, it would be good! Saiki looks like it will be the new gintama of Jump. Yuragi also looks promising, and it may be the new romance series to replace Nisekoi. But, what do you think about Sesuji wo Pin to? It has reached 60 Chapters, and the story is quite enjoyable! Its rankings are not bad either.
As of Shokugeki no Soma, it looks like it is slowly beginning to complicate things, and that it will reach Toriko's and Bleach's situation.
Is World Trigger considered a high-rated series? I stopped reading it after the Invasion Arc, and I don't really like it, but it looks like its rankings are good!

Generally most people who read it consider it at least good.
