Hopefully that 50th anniversary celebration will include a western license.
Life is not about the second chances. It's about a little mouse and his voyage to an exciting new land. That, my friend, is what life is.

With Seven Seas putting out so much Go Nagai and Leiji Matsumoto material you'd figure a series like this would be next on the docket. I mean, they're even releasing Dragon Half this year.

I wouldn't count it out just yet.

So, holy shit at that last chapter of Kimetsu no Yaiba.

Spoiler
I almost want to cheer, but I doubt that it's over yet. More than likely something will prevent him from completely cutting off the older brother demon's head, but just the way that he plays defeat and despair until that one moment of opportunity arises is fantastic, in which he unleashes his trademark head-butt on his enemy, catching him off guard and temporarily stunning him in order to give him an opportunity for a kill-strike. His sister and all of his friends are down and out, he's barely keeping it together himself and two of his fingers are broken, and his enemies are taunting him to mentally torture him before finishing him off. He doesn't give up hope. He throws it right back in that guy's smug, laughing face. I love it. This is the kind of stuff that I read shonen manga for.

That chapter was full on crazy. This battle has to be nearing the end now. There's not much left of our main characters at this point!

Weekly Shonen Jump Issue #7 (January 9th, 2018):
Bozebeats (Cover, Lead CP, New Series)
1. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba
2. One Piece
The Disastrous Life of Saiki K (CP)
3. Black Clover
4. Dr. Stone
5. The Promised Neverland
6. My Hero Academia
7. We Never Learn
Hinomaru Sumo (CP)
8. Food Wars: Shokugeki no Soma
9. Gintama
10. Haikyu!!
11. Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs
12. Robot x Laserbeam
13. Cross Account (END)
14. Spring Weapon No. 1
15. Full Drive (23p)
16. Golem Hearts
Tomatoy Lycopene

And there goes Cross Account. Next week we have another new series and KnY is getting yet another color page (it's been getting a lot recently) not to mention Yuuna is getting a poster.  The rankings look the same as usual although it does seem like the most recent series won't be lasting very long. With Saiki's anime starting soon I think it's safe to say it will be pushed quite a bit and I think Yuuna will get the same when its anime starts too. Otherwise everything is more or less where it usually is.

And with Cross Account's death, nothing of value was lost.  :awesome:

Golem Hearts doesn't seem like it will end by issue 8, so I'm guessing that Full Drive will be the third series to get cancelled this round since the match Dan was playing is now over.  It's good to see KnY continue to do great, and it looks like things are performing as expected.

Weekly Shonen Jump Issue #8 (January 16th, 2018):
Act-Age (Cover/Lead CP, New Series)
1. Dr. Stone
2. The Promised Neverland
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba (CP)
3. Black Clover
4. We Never Learn
5. My Hero Academia
6. The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.
7. Hinomaru Zumou
8. Spring Weapon No 1
Boruto (Not Ranked)
9. Food Wars!: Shokugeki no Soma
Bozebeats (CP, 25p)
10. Haikyu!!
11. Yuna and the Haunted Hot Springs
12. Robot x Laserbeam
13. Gintama
14. Full Drive
15. Golem Hearts
Tomatoy Lycopene


Looking at the recent ratings there are a few patterns emerging. The first is that Jump is really pushing Dr. Stone. It's good and I'm enjoying it, but I really do doubt it being placed so high is only based on popularity. It's sales are not very impressive. The other is that KnY getting so many color pages almost makes it seem like they're trying to squeeze more popularity out of it since it has reached the peak of what it can really achieve without an anime. I think that would be remedied by actually having one. If it doesn't have an anime by the end of the year I'll be very surprised. Everything else more of less falls where it usually does but those two series have been bugging me recently and I think that's what has been going on.

Next week Promised Neverland gets the cover and Act Age and HxH get color pages. Also, there's a We Never Learn poster, as well as a brand new one shot. I hope the new series this round fair better than the last batch. Doesn't look like any of them are very popular.

Really? I've heard lots of praise and buzz for Bozebeats so far. That one might have legs to it.

No, I meant the round before this batch. Those don't seem to have hit.
