Barrage Manga Cancelled

Viz Media News Manga News Japanese Pop Culture News


While many manga are cancelled prematurely due to lack of popularity it was particularly surprising when brand new series Barrage was cancelled from serialisation in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine.

So what was so surprising about Barrage getting the axe? Well it was the fact that many had believed the series would be safe due to the fact that Viz Media had picked it up from the get go for serialisation in their digital manga anthology Weekly Shonen Jump Alpha, making it one of the fastest translated manga of all time. Two weeks after it’s original debut in Japan it was translated into English by Viz for Weekly Shonen Jump Alpha.

This is certainly disappointing news for fans of the manga, but with weeks of ranking at the bottom of Jump’s polls was writing on the wall for this series. With only one chapter left (chapter 15), Shueisha promises it will be the ‘stunning conclusion’ of Barrage. What do you think of Barrage being cancelled? Let us know in the comments section below.

    It’s a shame really, the art style was interesting and I could see the story and world growing better in time. Sadly the first chapters and fights were just too dragged out, and that may have doomed the series. The artist’s previous manga, Oumagadoki Doubutsuen, was an interesting yet was also cancelled fairly early. Hopefully Alpha replaces Barrage with another new title from Jump, preferably Assassination Classroom!

    It makes me feel like some mangaka need to move to the US and make manga solely for us. Maybe if it’s even shorter series.

    • Agreed that would be very nice if they did something like that ~MA
