An ok, slightly weird ToC this week. PSI's rise the most unexpected. Assassination Classroom drops out of the top 2 for the first time in forever, Beelzebub continues to rise and Gintama continues it bottom 5 slump. One Piece'll be back next week, but Bleach won't be back till Issue #41. Both being absent this week  are quite possibly the reason why the ToC is a little weird.

It also appears that we have some bangaihen in next week's issue. For those of you who don't know what this is, they're basically side stories of a manga series, but they're not linked to any actual plot. We're getting i for Gag Manga Biyori (dunno what that is) and Inumaru Dashi, which was in JUMP aaaaages ago. Back when I started this blog, in fact. I actually wish Katekyo Hitman Reborn! would get one - that ending left me VERY unsatisfied...

The last of the new series starts next week in the form of Hime Doll!!, and like I said would happen, Koisuru Edison has made way. No more confusing-as-fuck double chapters! Ceeelebrate good times, come on!

As you probably already know, I've chosen Kuroko no Basket as my Manga of the Month. I'll tell you a little about it and encourage you to check it out. If you have, and/or you read it regularly, let me know what you think of it in the comments!

Kuroko no Basket (Kuroko's Basketball), written by Tadatoshi Fujimaki, is about 5 legendary basketballers, known as the "Generation of Miracles" , who each played for a middle school team, but went to different high schools. However, there was actually a sixth member called Kuroko Tetsuya, who now goes to Seirin High, and now wants to help Seirin become the best in Japan, with the help of his naturally-talented teammate, Tagami Kaiga, by taking on his former teammates - one-by-one.

Kuroko no Basket has been serialised since December 2008 and so far has 21 volumes released, with sales of over 9,000,000 copies in Japan. Volumes have frequently appeared on lists of best-selling manga in Japan. The first season of the anime premiered in April 2012 and ended in September 2012. A second season is also set to air this October.

That's it for this week! Thanks for reading, see ya next week! ^.^

  1. Maybe Japanese have grown tired waiting for tentacle rape in Assassination Classroom.

    1. LOOOOL surely they can get their fix from some AC doujinshi?

    2. I can see that coming.

  3. You wrote "Assassination Classroom drops out of the bottom 2 for the first time in forever,..." I think you meant top 2? :P

    I haven't read PSI Kusuo Saiki, because only the first 9 chapters have been translated, but looking at the rankings it seems to be a good series. What's it like?
    I'm still hoping for World Trigger to go on for a bit longer and it's seems to be doing okay.

    Also, I've been wondering about this for some time: Do you read (or are you) Japanese?

    1. PSI's art is one of the worst I've seen in a manga, because it looks fan-artish. But it's a gag manga. I would describe it as the japanese version of the tv series "Daria", only that instead of beeing a very smart person among stupid, the main character is the most powerful beeing on earth surrounded by stupid.

      Yeah... it is fun but if I were to rank it with the other jump series it would probably be lower than world trigger and bleach. Hell, I actually liked the 9th spot it got last week.

      Worth reading? Maybe, depends on your mind-set. If you like over the top comedy that only anime and manga is able to give you, then sure. But it gets tiring, hence the drop from 4th to 9th last week. Bt I still don't see why it got this jump of popularity.
