This week’s edition of Power Rankings bears the full brunt of the Golden Week holiday period, with the vast majority of series taking a break. Jump and Sunday did not release an issue this week, leaving only Magazine series the opportunity to impress. That opportunity was seized by Nanatsu no Taizai, which has impressed on the strength of its recent plot, but was certainly aided on its way to the top by the overall drop in scores from its competitors. Fuuka and Yamada-kun also took advantage of the situation, reaching temporary highs that will likely be corrected in the next couple weeks.

With mid-table positions entirely determined by Golden Week, the only remaining point of interest is at the bottom of the chart, where a few Magazine series have performed so poorly in recent times that they couldn’t overtake Jump or Sunday series that didn’t even release a chapter. That said, Kamisama no Iutoori II has finally moved on from its abysmal rock-paper-scissors arc, and is already showing some promise that it could regain the respectability and interest it had not too long ago.
