Top 20 Shonen Jump Manga People Gave Up On

News Manga News Japanese Pop Culture News Anime News

Recently, a poll was held on popular Japanese website, Goo, that asked readers, which popular Shonen Jump manga did they stop reading before it’s natural conclusion. The results are surprising to say the least.

20. Eyeshield 21
19. Pyu to Fuku! Jaguar
18. Yu Yu Hakusho
17. Dr. Slump
16. Rurouni Kenshin
15. Fist of the North Star
14. Kinnikuman
13. City Hunter
12. Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo
11. Dragon Ball
10. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure
9. Gintama
8. Hunter x Hunter
7. Reborn!
6. Captain Tsubasa
5. Bleach
4. The Prince of Tennis
3. One Piece
2. KochiKame
1. Naruto

Now these results don’t mean a series is bad by any means. If anything these are all classic manga series, by all counts. This however does show that some people lost faith in certain series, in particular Naruto. KochiKame was always going to be in the top 3 because it has been going for over 30 years, but Naruto quite questionably sits comfortably as the top series dropped by manga readers.

    Yeah, I bought 20 volumes of Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicles and then bought the complete anime! Watched the ending.. Ranted about it then found out the ending o the manga is just as bad.. I’ve given up hope in it.. >.> I’ll probably buy the rest when I have left over money.. NOT HAPPY CLAMP. NOT HAPPY. XD

      Haha, I can definitely feel your pain. Some manga, I just can not continue as I lose faith in them. Others I follow out of habit even though I personally think “hey this sucks”.
