Yep got that one year special


Thanks for the heads up, just got mine :). Probably won't use it because it's easier and quicker to read off other sources but at least I'm supporting the industry now.

One Piece already has me hyped up again, can't wait to see how this year unfolds. My Hero's new arc is good, but its still disappointing Midoriya can't have some straight up fights yet. Glad Black Clover had Yami and the Eye of the Midnight Sun leader show up, been waiting see Yami fight for awhile now.

I need to catch up on Mononofu and Samon, wish they had put one of them in SJ.
I was immensely frustrated about Mononofu not getting picked up. I was hugely interested in that manga. And it's not even a failure, either, it's going to be sticking in the Japanese magazine.

I've been putting in a suggestion to pick it up each time I fill out the issue survey. Maybe if enough people request it (or another series like Straighten Up) they'll add it.

I've been suggesting both Mononofu and Straighten Up! each week in hopes of them getting added too. I'm really enjoying both series but I'm trying to move to legal only.

Man, great One Piece, Black Clover, and Soma chapters this week. Shocked at Soma's low ranking; I absolutely love the current arc.

I also subscribe to the English WSJ. Had a subscription since the early print days when they did the monthly magazine. It's only really been worth it the past couple years since they went simultaneous. I'd love it if they'd pick up Gintama, Straighten Up, Mononofu, and maybe even Samon. I've been trying to read legal as much as I can, but it's hard when options are still pretty limited.

Yeh it's a shame they don't have more series. Viz now has Assassination Classroom and Haikyuu licenced so I don't see why they can't do it weekly. I can sort of understand them and Straighten up! because sports mangas aren't too popular here and AC is a bit odd to translate due to all the puns, but stuff like Mononofu and Samon should be in. Hope they add more eventually but it's probably unlikely. And they have Jump Square series and OPM in there so it'd be cool if they could include some Young Jump series like Tokyo Ghoul or Terraformars but that's unlikely too I guess.

I have a subscription to the English one too! $25 is an extremely reasonable price for getting new manga each week.

I'd like to subscribe to the Japanese one as well, but it doesn't seem like you can buy a year subscription? (anyone know?) and it's more like $3/week so much pricier, but being able to read every series and all the one shots is nice...

I wish Viz would charge a bit higher price and have everything....

I just had a look at the website and it's kind of hard to navigate due to me not knowing many kanji but from what I found its 900yen a month for what looks like the digital magazine. So that's only a saving of 100 yen which is like a dollar, and they don't have a yearly subscription. Also I'm not sure if everything is included in the digital magazine if that is it. I know other magazines like shonen magazine don't have all of their series in the digital version so I assume it's probably the same here.

Shokugeki, from 13th to 1st because why the hell not? Pretty decent rankings though. Gintama could be a bit higher, but at this stage its rankings dont really matter considering how long its been with the magazine.

Also a new series, guess that means Buddy Strike is gone? Nothing else can really leave I don't think.

wow buddy strike twice last? It is definitely screwed. I think it mainly because it a baseball manga and at this point, the baseball genre been pretty much explored....twice


Mix from Mitsuru Adachi seems to have very strong sales and popularity for a Shonen Sunday manga.

I am sure Daiya no Ace also got a nice boost from the anime.

While Adachi always seems to find an audience whenever he releases a baseball manga, the genre is pretty saturated i.e. H2, Touch, Cross Game, Major, One Outs, Big Windup!, Daiya no A, Mix etc.

I would like to add that Major 2nd Volume sold over 1 million copies in its eighteen days of release after being published last year. http://www.kitakubu.co/2015/09/major-2nd-volume-sells-over-1-million-copies/

The problem with Bubby strike is not it’s genre of baseball, its characters weren’t interesting/ hard to relate to.

Major 2nd is a sequel of Major with Goro’s son, Daigo, inheriting none of his talent for baseball and has a weak shoulder but tries to make up with it hard work. Sato’s son, Hikaru grew up in America and has never played baseball before but seems to have an incredible good arm for pitching. Goro’s and Sato’s son are polar opposite of their Dads. Daigo is a catcher while Hikaru is a pitcher. Garo and Hikaru are talented while Sato and Daigo son are hard working.

Haru and Kosaki saving Nisekoi ranking it seems. I was glad to see Nisekoi towards the bottom recently but then Haru had to come and save Nisekoi. At this point all I can do is hope that it fails after this current arc is over.

I've started suggesting it in my surveys as well. Even with the multiple top 5 rankings it's received, I'm not hopeful though. People loved Kuroko and it to them forever to even think about releasing the volumes (and now I'm worried Haikyuu and Kuroko's sales will decided the fate of every other viz owned sports/competitive game series).
