This week’s installment of Power Rankings is certainly livelier near the top than last week’s chart was; Shokugeki no Souma continues its reign as the most enjoyable shonen series at the moment, but it’s far from a dominant victory, as the stunning events of the latest Koe no Katachi chapter bring it within a couple percentage points of top spot. A touching chapter seals third place for Gintama, while Nanatsu no Taizai and the ever cheerful Fuuka round out the top 5.

The current position of Hayate no Gotoku! reflects its current storytelling: It’s good, but missing a special touch to make it stand out. Magic is on the rise this week, with both Magi and UQ Holder executing climaxes fairly well, while Hunter x Hunter starts making up for the absences plaguing its early introduction to the table.

Toriko and Kuroko no Basket both suffer sharp drops for differing reasons, the former for an excusable absence and the latter for an inexcusable focus on Akashi’s past. The bottom of the rankings is largely unchanged, with only the pitiful form of Naruto granting Fairy Tail some reprieve. Finally, as its impromptu absence reaches its fourth week, Kamisama no Iutoori II is on the verge of leaving the chart.
