Jump ToC Rankings (Issue 15, 2013)


I’m so late on this that the next English issue comes out tomorrow. My bad.

Japanese Issue 15

WSJ Cover 15 2013

Assassination Classroom (Cover, Lead Colour)
1. Naruto
2. One Piece
3. SKET Dance
4. The Disaster of Psi Kusuo Saiki
Nisekoi: False Love (Center Colour)
5. Toriko
World Trigger (Chapter 5)
High Kyū!! (Center Colour)
6. Kuroko’s Basketball
7. Shokugeki no Sōma (Extra Pages)
Medaka Box (Center Colour)
Koisuru Edison (Chapter 6)
8. Bleach
9. Kochikame
10. Gin Tama
11. Beelzebub
12. Hungry Joker
13. Cross Manage
14. Rookie Policewoman Kiruko-san

It turns out that, rather than ending, Medaka Box is starting a new arc.

Combined shipments for the first 5 volumes of High Kyū!! total 1.5 million. This would sound amazing if Assassination Classroom hadn’t just recently surpassed 2 million with two volumes.

The next three issues will give Shokugeki no Sōma colour pages, though it was not said if any of these were cover pages. Notably, there have been more chapters for this series with colour pages or extra pages than chapters without either.

It has been speculated that the reason for the existence of Jump Versus (which I explained last week) is because not a single one of Jump‘s recent successes have been combat-based.

A loyal fan of Beelzebub bought 44 copies of the latest volume in what was presumably an attempt to obtain one of the signed posters given to the first 1000 copies.

Seems Naoshi outright pointed out that the Nisekoi chapter had cameos from Koi no Kami-sama, one of his one-shots.
