    Sadly, yes. I think it had a lot of potential but little kid heroes are out of fashion now.

    Yes it is. But, there is still hope. Mankin-Trad will scanlate the entire series, none the less.

    Volume 1 comes out in May. This is a VERY quick turn-around time, as I also predicted. It will most likely be in early May as well, so it's only 2 months away. And I predict that Volume 2 will out in July or August. But, since there is only 10 chapters, it will probably be 6 chapters in Volume 1 and 4 in Volume 2. Then there is going to be an extra 100 pages or so to be filled. This could mean more Jumbor chapters, new SK chapters, Smash Bomber chapters, or a new one-shot manga. It's really open area, and something to look forward to!

    Takei's ending comments, are basically the same ones as he had with Shaman King. The "it's the nature of making manga" and a "look forward to my next series!"

    Also, here's a excerpt from another post I made on the reasons for Jumbor cancellation:
    Boring and Nipper:
    Boring was just boring. He wasn't a like-able character. Same for Nipper. One chapter you would enjoy him, the next you would hate his guts. The first character impression was just bad. Baru and Rivetta are bearable.

    King Genber:
    Shaman King lasted as long as it did, and same for all the other Jump series because of a "Like-able evil" or a character that you "love to hate." Genber was just a blob, no real appearence that anybody could say, "this is my favorite character." Hao (later half) and Ren (early manga) were both characters that you would like to see, even if you liked Yoh better. Genber just didn't apply to the readers.

    Success of Shaman King:
    People were expecting something great. This expectation killed the ratings in the begining. It's like going Kenshin to Busou Renkin. It worked, but not what we expected. Takei was trying to get out of Shaman King's shadow with Jumbor, but he couldn't.

    Timing of release:
    Jumbor was part of a "new wave for Weekly Jump." There was like 3/4 new series, one right after another. This is pretty fatal, since most new series fail. When you increase the competition of new series, it's likely Jumbor would fail.

    Cancelation of Monthly Jump:
    Maybe this doesn't have anything to do with Jumbor, but maybe it does. Some of those mangas might become Weekly chapters, and they wanted to clean out the "possible big hits" now, to have room later.

    Blue Dragon; Ral Grado:
    As Bleach was the killer for SK, Blue Dragon killed Jumbor. Blue Dragon is a money manga. It's completely backed behind Mircosoft in order to raise support for it's Xbox360. Like Smash Bomber, it's using it's money and product line to sell the manga. Regardless of the ratings, Blue Dragon will stick around because it's got money backing. They also put big names behind the series to promote it as well, like with Smash Bomber. Takeshi Obata and Akira Toriyama are just the cover behind the money. So, since Blue Dragon was going to win the "new series race to success," it was just a matter of time.

    The current environment:
    Making a manga in 2007 was incrediably different than back in 1997. 10 years made the difference. Back then, you had 2 big series, Kenshin and Dragonball. Everybody else was just filler. Today, it's not as simple. Now One Piece, Naruto, and Bleach line the top. But, there is also a 2nd-tier series like Prince of Tennis, Eyeshield21, Blue Dragon, and D.Grey-man (Bobobo and Gintama fall in there too, but as comedies it's hit and miss). This puts alot of pressure on the smaller series to become big. There just isn't enough growing room. Too many series are lining the top, and even series that aren't there would get better ratings. DragonBall, Kenshin, Death Note, Shaman King, and HunterXHunter would easily be put on the top of people's lists, making the "good list" become so full, that there is no room for anything new. In 1998, you had Kenshin and Dragonball, along with your pick of sports manga. The competition just wasn't there, along with the profits.
    And finally, I think this topic should be merged with the other Jumbor topic, since I don't see us needing 2 topics.

    Honestly, when the first chapter of this came out, I thought for sure it'd last three, maybe four more chapters at the most. The first chapter honestly didn't impress me. I suppose VincentN is right, little kid main characters aren't all that appealing. I hate reading mangas about brats, especially the ones there they're middle schoolers who look like high schoolers (Make them flipping high schoolers, people, jeeze!)(but I'm a hypocrite, because I love Air Gear and the Law of Ueki XD, but seriously, I always forgot how old they are because they don't look it - in contrast, everyone in Shaman King looks younger than they actaully are XD).

    Anyway, Jyuki didn't really interest me at all.

    A little off-topic: What?! Bleach replaced Shaman King?! Oh horror of horrors! (Not that I don't like Bleach, but Orihime has been the only character that I've ever hated this much - Go Rukia :3).

    Totally off-topic: -cries- HunterxHunter! Well, okay, I had no idea it existed when it was still being serialized, but I love it now! I'm sure millions of people would be estactic and support HxH if it ever came back ;_; Goddamn lazy mangaka. I guess he doesn't want to keep doing it, since he's probably filthy rich by now with two hit series and being married to Mrs. Sailor Moon.

    Okay poof-san, one i loved jyuki and am pro anything that takei-dono does. Two i love all "shonens" to be honest and to call the characters "brats" i think is extremely disrespectful to the mangaka. Last but not least i have also recently gotten into hunter hunter and unless im mistaken gon and killua are the same age as our favorite shamans, i personally think that its extremely ignorant to call the hxh mangaka lazy especially seeing as how you didnt know the circumstances under which it was cancelled. Thats all, i wont be replying in this post again so have fun.

    Also, in the final 2 chapters of Jumbor, really express what happens at the end of Shaman King. So, you could consider Jumbor a sequel. But it doesn't go into great detail, so it's not really spoiling the story too much. Please wait for those scanlations when they come out.

    It's not cancelled as far as I know, still on "break."

    Also, about the little kid comment. Basically, "you had it coming." If you liked Hana from Funbari No Uta, then you can only blame yourself (and if you live in Japan, and actually have a voice). Since Baru was completely based on Hana, Takei thought it was a good idea. But, I think everybody will enjoy Baru in Chapter 10 anyways. Plus, Volume 1 comes out in May!
