    I still don't really get the "set by the editors" thing. Does that mean they're automatically given a certain place?

    You know... The whole system in itself confuses me, so I'm just going to look and think "Oh, that's doing good, cool." and try not to analyze it too much, lol.

    ^More or less. They're mangas that are, despite their position, not part of the ranking. Usually this is due to either 2 situations:
    -the manga is very much new (not past chapter 8) or;
    -the manga has colour pages

    Everything else is an indication of their popularity

    A couple more notes regarding the ranks to know:
    -Jaguar = always last, not because it's bad...but because the mangaka has a reputation and Jump just likes ending the magazine every week with it.
    -KochiKame = for the most part negligible. Yeah it's ranked but a series that has been around for 34 years now really isn't going to be affected by the ups and downs of young whippersnappers. (that reminds me: I need to get back to TLing that series...but Nube is a bit higher priority for me currently)
    Y'know, Negima WAS awesome...
    For the first 18 volumes.

    Kuroko being so high while Beelzebub and Psyren are down?

    At least, we aren't getting any new wasted on Kuroko colourspreads.

    I don't like Medaka being that low, but Sket Dance is alright i guess.

    inumari dashi does alright in the ToC, it's a comedy one, but why isn't ANYONE scanlating it? is it because the main character is a pantsless kindergartener?

    because that never stopped beelzebub...

    or is it out there, and I just suck at finding manga online? :D

    Even if it being a gag manga, the main obstacle for operative scanlating is the language of Inumaru. Not only is it full of text, but it also contains many cultural references and allusions.

    Or so I hear.

    I started translating Inumaru Dashi, but nobody scanlated the first 4 chapter so I kinda stopped.

    I'm working on two (and sort of a third) projects I'm behind with right now. If I catch up with both of those I'm gonna go back and work on Inumaru Dashi. I'm gonna have to scan in the volumes and everything though, too. The thing is, it's a gag manga, so it has a lotta words and not much plot besides being episodic. And tends to have a lot of references to pop culture and stuff, too. Also each chapter is 9 pages long.


    As people mentioned, Jaguar is unranked, Kochikame kinda always lands in the middle, and things with color pages/covers/opening colors aren't ranked. They're placed there to spread out where the color pages are. Generally Jump gives new series the cover unless they really think they suck. Inumaru Dashi is one of them.

    Though if a series appears on the cover frequently that means it's doing very well. Because the cover is what attracts people to buy the magazine. So One Piece, Bleach, and Naruto have that a lot. Toriko, Bakuman, Gintama and Reborn get a few "covers without anything big to celebrate" too. Then occasionally a series will get the cover for its anniversary for the lesser ones. Though stuff like Psyren and Kuroko pretty much never do and just get lots of color pages.

    Hmm, I've started reading Kuroko and it doesn't seem bad so far, so I can see why it's that high. Although, I feel Psyren and Beelzebub could go higher than it. I'm happy that Sket Dance is up there, it's hilarious. But why is Gintama still going on? Maybe it gets better in later chapters, but I've read about 10 and it's sooo boring. Not funny at all.

    I'd like to know what Shounen Skikku and this SWOT are about... I'll probably look it up and see.

    I find it kind of funny that you say it like scanlations are a given or something. I can understand if you said this about, you know, the actual magazine instead of an illegal service that people don't have to do.

    Seems that SWOT is only a one-shot.

    Transfer student Manabizaki Kyou is a swot, a person who spends too much time studying. His dream is to attend Tokyo University and then work for NASA! He will soon discover, however, that the high school he's transferred into, which was once very prestigious, has taken in delinquents from the surrounding schools. Now it is full of violence and gang fights.

    Luckily, Manabizaki has a surprising skill at fighting, particularly when he's defending the peace of his study area. Through this strength he'll find his new friends, a weak boy called Iwashida and a legendary delinquent girl, Hasuno Nene, who makes him feel things that, for the first time in his life, he can't explain...

    Drawings seems too much similiar to Kubo's and Obata's. iManga Scanlations has just scanlated it.

    Instead Shounen Shikku seems another fucking Captain Tsubasa. It won't last more than 18 chapters.

    Ehh, it seems so... cliche, and obvious. But yeah, the drawings do look really close to Bakuman's. Oh, well. iManga did a good job getting it out so quick... Hmm, I might go join them as a typesetter.

    Yeah, SWOT's one shot has been out for awhile, its this week that its series run starts.

    I liked the one shot, it was well done.

    Preferential treatment. The mangaka wanted to be there, he is notable (he's the guy behind "Sexy Commando Gaiden: Sugoi yo! Masaru-kun") and...why the heck not?

    Psyren Psyren-ing isn't news anymore to me since it just goes up and down violently week after week but still has survived 2.5 years. I still say it needs an anime to stabilize it but it just never seems to have the love in Japan as it does here.

    Pretty good week for some of the more recent series otherwise.
    Y'know, Negima WAS awesome...
    For the first 18 volumes.

    Psyren was pretty intresting at start but lately it has become so full of shonen cliches and whole time travel bullshit that even I wish that head editor would finish its suffering existence.
