Absent due to missing scans: Haikyuu!!

The knock-on effects of the holiday disruption are still on display in this week’s Power Rankings, as over half of the series in the chart have two absences within the five-week judging period. That said, the top three series remain strong and unchanged; The World God Only Knows is in the midst of a renaissance, with its plot surpassing itself each week like it did during its much vaunted Goddess Hunt arc.

Hayate and Koe no Katachi prove their staying power as well, but last week’s top 5 appearance for Area D ends up being short-lived, with the series’ inconsistent publishing schedule harming it again. The biggest positive move comes from Nanatsu no Taizai  which benefits from an unexpected plot reveal.

In mid-table, the Jump series have yet to recover from their second double-issue, effectively only leapfrogging one another as in the case of Shokugeki no Souma overtaking One Piece. The bottom of the chart looks unsurprisingly stagnant, with the basement dwellers only moving up a rank thanks to the unfortunate absence of Haikyuu!!.
