This new installment of Power Rankings is dominated by Jump series, with the magazine controlling the top four positions. Head of the line is One Piece, whose Pica-related action is enough to maintain a slim lead over the particularly fabulous Shokugeki no Souma. Nanatsu no Taizai is the only non-Jump series making a strong enough showing to enter the top 5, coming in after the sustained quality of Toriko and Gintama.

In the middle of the chart, the remarkably high position of UQ Holder is notable, since this series has taken its time in introducing engaging long-term plot. Nisekoi suffers the sharpest drop of any series this week – not counting Area D, which is on its scheduled absence – owing just as much to other series simply improving as to its own slight decline. In more heartening news, Naruto and Kamisama no Iutoori II, both long-time veterans of the bottom 5, are making good strides upwards.

The aforementioned bottom 5 offers one small glimmer of hope, coming from Stealth Symphony, which has finally presented some measure of meaningful conflict by way of the interesting newcomer Slice. That’s the only positivity on offer this far down in the table, though; Kuroko no Basket continues to plummet thanks entirely to the dull and overpowered Akashi, while Wagatsuma-san and Fairy Tail are as stagnant as ever.
