Last year, some of Weekly Shounen Jump! magazine’s biggest anime titles finally concluded, including long-running titles like BLEACH and KochiKame. Other popular titles like Naruto, Nisekoi, Sket Dance, Kuroko’s Basketball, and Assassination Classroom are also over. Even with Gintama and One Piece still going strong, many fans are still wondering which manga carries the magazine’s torch, which was carried by the likes of Dragon ball, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, and Yu Yu Hakusho.
Japanese rankings website, Goo, recently asked 3,110 manga readers on which currently running Shounen Jump! series is the magazine’s “Next Poster Manga”. Here are the Top 19:
19 – Demon’s Plan
18 – Amalgam of Distortion
17 – Seishun Heiki Number
16 – Ole Golazo
15 – Samon-kun wa Summoner
14 – Straighten Up! Welcome to Shika High’s Competitive Dance Club
13 – The Promised Neverland
12 – Yuragi-sou no Yuuna-san
11 – Kimetsu no Yaiba
10 – Hinomaru Zumou
9 – Isobe Isobee Monogatari ~Ukiyo wa Tsurai yo~
8 – Boruto: Naruto Next Generations
7 – Black Clover
6 – Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma
5 – World Trigger
4 – The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.
3 – My Hero Academia
2 – Hunter X Hunter
1 – Haikyuu!!
While battle manga like Naruto and Dragon Ball have been the mainstays for Shounen Jump! through the decades, fans have voted a sports manga, Haikyuu!!, as the manga that they think is the magazine’s new poster manga. The sports anime defeated traditional shounen battle manga titles like My Hero Academia and World Trigger, which both made it to the Top 5.
Curiously, the hiatus-ridden Hunter x Hunter made it to #2 despite being in hiatus for a long time now. This just proves how popular the series is, despite going on hiatus often, and for long periods of time.
