Honestly, I feel JUMP is one of the worst magazine for this manga.
Even if it manage to survive, its potential can be easily ruined.

Sunday or GanGan would be a better places for this manga.

No synopsis? Anyway, it feels Jump is getting lots of baseless hate. ^

Jesus, how many more mangas that Jump will keep adding? World Trigger and Koisuru Edison, two previous manga added by them, were complete failure and garbage at best. And it seems to me they're already frustated enough that keep adding manga per short period of time becomes the only solution to maintain their readers base.

Agreed. This manga feels kinda niche and i doubt it would be able to attract mainstream shonen readers base, in which Jump stands best for

It seems Jump just publishes as much new artists as possible in hope to find the new hit.

You must be really new to WSJ if this surprises you.
Every single year Jump cycles about 10~12 titles and majority of them fail, but 2 or 3 stick.
It has been like this for three decades or so.
2010-2011 were particularly bad year while 2012 was one of the best year.

Every season, WSJ cycles out 2-3 titles, and introduce 2-3 more.
The number of titles cycling in/out can vary by a little depending on how they're doing that year (and who's in charge), but in general it's been consistent.

And you know what? To be quite frank, this highly competitive nature has worked out for them, WSJ is single handedly the most popular manga magazine in Japan, more so than WSS and WSM combined. So I would say they know what they're doing more than what we, the smug arm-chair marketing internet critics say.

As for Soul Catcher(s), it was nearly identical to the one-shot version with very minor changes. Hell he probably could have just added a few pages at the end and in between and published the exact same content without redrawing the whole thing.

Your right. Jump is for shounen-esque stuff. If it isn't shounen it'll die. Either by editor or by lack of votes. In the end jump is all about shounen. If you can't stand that you shouldn't read jump.

They'll keep throwing in more stuff until they feel like something can take the place of naruto and bleach. They need a new flagship. Other than Toriko, they pretty much have nothing. Everything else is too early to tell.

Romance stuff is pretty much doomed. Although it seems Nisekoi is doing pretty fine. Kano and Kawashita should really go to a different magazine...

Just read Ch 1-5. I like it. It's similar in concept to Iris Zero but the story is executed better so far.
