I looked at Nina's expression in your avatar and imagined her saying the same thing. Laughing

I remember hearing that The Prince of Tennis wrapped up a while back. Is the volume listed the final one or are there any other chapters that still need to be collected?

42 should be the final volume of the Prince of Tennis. They held conclusion parties for it and everything. The manga author was moved to tears...

Hopefully this will give him a chance to rest before his next work. He looks so thin and frail I wonder if he ever had time to eat or sleep...

Eh, the only Jump SQ series I care about are Embalming, Luck Stealer and Shiki.

Well, the Prince of Tennis is finally over, who knows when we'll see that volume here. The One Piece and Reborn covers look a lot different from the norm, maybe Jump is trying something new.

Just what I would expect from One Piece, and as always, my favorite series there could possibly be for shonen. I'm not surprised that it has come this far to be 50 volumes, and I remember a while back I predicted when it was at 40 that it will probably end up being more than 60 volumes. I mean, it's already surpassed Dragon Ball a long time ago.

One Piece Volume 50 apparently sold over 1 million copies for it's first week.

I honestly wonder how much all 18 volumes have sold here in the States.

Well, let's see, the volume counts already surpassed Dragon Ball (42 volumes, with the last two being extra thick in pages). Dragon Ball has a total of 519 chapters, while One Piece is currently at 503. With the manga chapter counts, It'll be about 2 more months?

The various Dragon Ball animes total up to 508 episodes, while One Piece is currently at 357 (with 358 coming out the beginning of next week, I believe).
