^ As a person that every so often puts massive effort into surprises for his fiance, I can confirm this is a lot of work and in real life circumstances .. can be very very very very very expensive.

I'm really surprised at Assassination Classroom. I've only read about 9 chapters of it, and the series isinteresting, but it's scary how fast it caught on.

I've also been really surprised at the positions of Naruto lately (Bleach has been dropping for a while). Seeing it more mid and getting beat out by series like Nisekoi (a good series, but not something you'd expect to beat one of the Big Three) makes you realize that readers really do seem to be suffering from fatigue. I know I've barely read Naruto since this whole war started and have no plans to pick it up again soon.

This really is more than likely a side project for him, I doubt he takes it that seriously compared to the 4-5 novels he writes at a time. Even his monogatari series has low spots (Nise 2) which unfortunately has mostly been animated lately, Zen + Kizu is the series back at it's full strength though. But yeah Zaregoto >>>>>>>>>>>>
I agree. I'm sure he probably doesn't care about MB nearly as much as his LNs. Other may disagree, but I find it quite apparent in the quality of the work. Sometimes, there's moments of brilliance, like the whole StuCo race arc with Ajimu or simple things like a certain confession from chapter 60. But overall, the writing itself has been fairly bland and the story at times felt like it he was trying to be different just to be different, not becuse he really had anything great planned. I think that really came through during the last three arcs.

I really liked it when he had started to humanize Medaka a bit by having her begin to finally understand people, but then he turns her into an indestructible moon-destroying god and ruins the whole thing.

Jury's still out on World Trigger, but has ranked well so far so it might join the other 5 "new" hits for Jump.

So yeah Beelzebub & Sket Dance will clearly get that "pressure" that Medaka is under, that Reborn and Mago had etc. I mean imagine Hunter X Hunter comes back with 2 other new series to replace Medaka, Kiruko-san and Hungry Joker. Now these 2 new series are say on the level of Shokugeki no Souma... what gets cut? Cross Menage and....

Hypothetical though.
I'd say Souma will be a solid midfielder for a long time. The art itself is probably the highest tier the entire WSJ palette has to offer. Longtime Tosh! fans should be buying up the tankobons pretty heftily so i wouldn't be worried about Souma leaving 5-10 anytime soon. Even if it should tank sales will keep it up high enough to not get axed for a few years.

Cross Menage i haven't read yet, probably ain'tworthwhile anyway, same as Kiruko. Kiruko just didn't have the necessary appeal gag mangas need imo. Neither were the characters on a level to be able to compensate for the lack of the prementioned emptiness in the plot/gags imo.

Haven't read PSI yet either, probably gonna give it a shot sometime soon.ú

I still wonder how Haikyuu, Kuroko and Nisekoi are keeping up their streak, they are relatively stale. Stale like Beelzebub when it strays from it's usual path and goes full cliché fighting manga mode.
