Absent due to missing scans: Shokugeki no Souma
Dropped from rankings due to inconsistent scans: Haikyuu!!

This week’s edition of Power Rankings sees the chart continue on the long path to stability, as recent absences move closer to being dropped out of the five-week judging window. Disruption or not, though, no series could come close to The World God Only Knows, which is in scintillating form. Koe no Katachi is the best of the rest thanks to an emotional development, while Hayate slips slightly and Gintama reclaims a spot in the top 5.

A renewed focus on politics and characters sees Magi rise up to where it should have been for months, among the best in shonen. That upwards mobility comes at the expense of series like Kenichi and Yamada-kun, both of which had slightly disappointing chapters this week. Further down, One Piece and Bleach are steadily regaining the ground they lost over the holidays, and Kimi no Iru Machi reaps the rewards of embracing a straightforward, solid ending.

  • I’ve said my piece on Beelzebub already, but I’m still liking Koe no Katachi and TWGOK (I really want to hear you guys talk about that series again)I’m Glad Magi is moving back in to more interesting territory (even if I’m not the biggest fan of politic stories) Something finally happening in Nisekoi, even if it is for a character I don’t really care for and One Piece is just doing its thing as usual, which is perfectly fine.
