Absent due to missing scans: Area D – Inou Ryouiki

This week’s Power Rankings feature a repeat showdown for top spot, with One Piece again narrowly triumphing over Shokugeki no Souma. Overall, the top 5 is an impressive mix of younger series, first place notwithstanding; positions 2 through 5 are all still in the double-digits of chapters published. Even disregarding Koe no Katachi, which is scheduled to end later this year, this block is a heartening peek into the future of shonen manga.

The middle of the table is in its usual flux, with missed chapters from UQ Holder and Kamisama no Iutoori II influencing a little more improvement from others than they might have managed on their own. Kuroko no Basket is the most notable beneficiary of the chance to rise up the ranks, as it finally replaced the recent Akashi-focused tedium with the teamwork between its two protagonists that defined the series.

Unfortunately, Naruto was not able to maintain its streak of consecutive weeks of positive movement, with yet another plot complication needlessly extending its finale, while only the absence of Area D gives the false impression of improvement for the still-last placed duo of Wagatsuma-san and Fairy Tail.
