As expected RxL seemed to have been skirting by on the authors past works rather than it's own quality, something similar happened with Hungry Marie which was given more time since it's author used to have a series in jump that was semi-succesful

That was fast though expected for both, reminds me of Samon-kun wa Summoner, too bad.

Such a bummer. ZIGA was actually enjoyable to read and interesting. Don't care about RxL at all, i'd rather read King Golf than the other one.

RxL was getting boring tbh. There's too many tropes that it's getting corny, It's too predictable, most characters are too generic. There's really nothing new to the table.

I had a feeling this was going to happen... I really enjoyed RxL and last year demon's plan both got the axe...

RXL was a serious highlight of the current line up. Probably my favorite sports manga since Cross Manage.

Sad to see it go.

ZIGA also looked like it could have been good, I was disappointed when VIZ didn't pick it up after its first 3 chapters.

IDK about it being "semi-successful". Beelzebub did have a 50+ episode anime a couple years back. Just because something isn't gone on for 5+ years, 200+ episodes doesn't mean that it was only half successful.
