I'd be infinitely more excited about a sequel to the manga, since the ending was completely anticlimatic (I.E. very anime-like). I'd be even more excited for an Mx0 manga continuation than a to-Love-ru manga continuation.... More
Shonen Jump’s ultimatum to readers to stop uploading its manga online or face legal consequences is in response to publishers’ deeply held fears about a loss of control over their mangaka and a collapse in magazine sales, say commentators.

Shonen Jump has published an editorial threatening those who illegally copy its manga on the Internet with legal or criminal sanctions, and decrying all who would “wound the souls of mangaka.”

The “Kono Manga ga Sugoi! 2010” ranking of manga, divided into manga for men and women, provides an interesting though not altogether “sugoi” selection of manga; below is the shonen/seinen list.
Japan’s manga industry faces great peril, with a significant drop in overall sales and a precipitous drop in sales for manga magazines suggesting that change may be required sooner rather than later if the industry is to arrest its decline.

Hiroshi Matsuyama, the CEO of CyberConnect2, the company responsible for the .hack and Narutimate Hero series of games, has confessed that he is a Naruto fan of legendary proportions, buying 15 copies of every volume and owning every issue of Shonen Jump published for the past 5 years.
However, unlike the unproductive obsessions of so many otaku, his has given rise to a successful company and a superb series of games, which he says is all down to his consuming love for the story: “The trick to producing an anime game is love for the original work!”

The spectre of cancellation had long hung over the series, and recently the story had been pointing towards signs of coming to a conclusion, making the news seem all too likely to be legitimate.
A survey of the top ten manga the Japanese would like to see left to posterity reveals the paragon of literary greatness in comic form is apparently a basketball manga, and that future generations might be disappointed should they happen not to like shonen manga…
Manga in Japan appears synonymous with One Piece in much the same way that manga overseas is a shorthand for saying “Naruto“, if the latest manga sales figures are anything to go by.
The collected Oricon Top 50 figures for manga sales through the first half of 2009 (shown below) give a complete picture of what manga series are dominating Japan of late, with the usual blockbusters of Bleach, Naruto, and (of course) One Piece dominating much of the list.
