Date: 21/07/2019


It is time to properly talk about this Shounen Jump’s Next Big Three Manga. But why talk about this now? Well, I got my reasons. The main reason being at this very moment we have officially reached a point where every new shounen jump manga that has become popular since last big three….well last big two. One of those big three just doesn’t want to die. You know what series I’m talking about. Well anyway back to the point. We have reached a point where every new popular Shounen Jump manga has now gotten an anime.

Because of this I now believe it is the right time to talk about the next big three. Both anime watchers and manga readers have gotten a taste of those sweet new and big shounen manga. Though there is 2 series I also want to talk about that hasn’t gotten an anime because it’s super new but has the potential to be a manga that will join the big three in the future. But I’ll save that one for last. For now, let us get started on this topic.

Shounen Jump’s Next Big Three Manga

Honestly can’t really say next big three while One Piece still exists but for this article lets just ignore One Piece for now and focus on those current big shounens. At the moment though it’s still a bit hard to gauge the next big three. Not because it is to hard to pick three or there is too little to choose from it’s the opposite. There’s too much to chose from. Too much new shounen manga was popular these last couple of years its kind of surprising. So the big three might not be big 3 but big 4 instead. But well let’s just list these manga talk about them a little bit then at the end say which 3 from the 4 or 5 manga would make sense as Shounen Jump’s Next Big Three Manga.

Boku no Hero Academia

Black Clover

Kimetsu no Yaiba

Dr. Stone

The Promised Neverland

Shounen Jump’s Next Big Three Manga

These 5 mangas are currently at the top of shounen jump’s popularity poll and all of them now officially received an anime adaption within the last 2 years. So now with the ranking of the manga and soon the ranks of the anime we can somewhat judge what the next big 3 will be. From my point of view and looking at all the minor details of these series and how popular they are it becomes pretty clear which of the 5 is the next big 3 some might not agree with what I’m about to list as the next big 3. But I’ll explain my reason for why I think these 3 will be on top.

1. Kimetsu no Yaiba

So why am I putting Kimetsu no Yaiba at number 1? Well, there are 2 reasons.

#1. The manga in Shounen Jump right now has been constantly ranking number 1 in Shounen Jump. Yes even outranking One Piece a few times. The manga is just doing so great popularity-wise and it’s keeping up what number 1 pace for weeks on end. The manga just gets better and better it’s popularity just won’t die down and that leads me to my second reason for why it’s at number 1.

#2. It’s anime adaption unlike other shounen adaptions Kimetsu no Yaiba has a studio behind it that just instantly makes it popular. That studio being Ufotable even people who don’t care for anime studio’s knows who Ufotable they are the guys with the unlimited budget just putting out visually beautiful anime. And just likes the studio’s previous anime Animation and Visually the studio is just giving its all into making the anime for  Kimetsu no Yaiba just look breathtaking

With a Popularity in Shounen Jump that won’t die ton and often hits the number 1 spot and a powerful studio backing the series, the red carpet has been put out for Kimetsu no Yaiba for it to be the number 1 series for this generation.

2. Boku no Hero Academia

This is  Obvious one though I’m sure most people would of expect it at number 1. But in all honesty stats-wise right now Boku No Hero just isn’t on top as it used to be. Not like I’m saying it dropped off no, no, the series its self is still really popular but as of late ranking wise it’s been dropping in Shounen Jump.

While it use to constantly be in the Top 3 in the past even outranking One Piece sometimes. Right now Boku No Hero often drops to rank 5 and 4 which still makes it really popular but just not as high as it was back in 2016 or 2017. Of course, though Boku No Hero as a franchise is still a powerhouse. It did get a head start in the anime business and just like Kimetsu no Yaiba it had an amazing studio baking it, Studio Bones though more people recognize Ufotable then Studio Bones nowadays. But anyway with its new season of anime airing soon Boku No Hero will probably jump back on top who knows.

3. Dr. Stone

Yes, Dr.Stone even I’m shocked putting this here. In all honesty, I thought it was going to be black clover here. But after looking at the stats I am shocked to see how popular Dr.Stone has become. I mean I love this series but it just isn’t the type of series I thought would always be on top, but it proved me wrong. Nearly every week this series is ranking in the top 3 popular shounen jump manga. It is outranking Boku No Hero at the moment. But you may be wondering if it’s outranking Boku No Hero why isn’t it at number 2? Well, that’s pretty simple.

At the moment even though the series has been hugely popular in the manga scene. The anime barely has a presence in the anime scene. The anime just started airing, it only has few episodes out it still needs to grow more. Sometimes like Boku no hero even if it’s dropping in rank it has a strong foundation in the anime and manga community. Dr.Stone currently doesn’t have that in the anime community. Its presence are only strong in the manga. So it needs to grow a bit more before it can even compete with something like Boku No Hero and Kimetsu no Yaiba. But at the moment it is popular enough to be considered one of the big three. Will it hold that position though? Eh we’ll find out in due time. But for now, these are in my opinion, Shounen Jump’s Next Big Three Manga

Shounen Jump’s Next Big Three Manga

Potential To Be One Of Shounen Jump’s Next Big Three Manga in The Future.

Now let me quickly talk about the 2 new shounen jump manga that is popular which I believe might be in the running for big three status in the future.

Chainsaw Man

Samurai 8: The Tale of Hachimaru

So why these 2 manga? why do I think they might be worth the title Shounen Jump’s Next Big Three Manga in the future. My reason is pretty simple, let us start with Chainsaw Man.

Chainsaw Man

Chainsaw Man this manga is one wild experience it is filled with blood and gore and sexual themes and all that stuff. In all honesty, I had a hard time believing this was a shounen jump manga it just doesn’t fit any of the current tropes we have come to know within shounen manga. The series is really out there and that’s great it makes the manga one of a kind in this current generation of manga with how un-shounen this shounen manga is. And people are starting to notice that because the manga is really popular in Shounen jump it is ranking high.

You’d often see it ranked at number 5 which is wild for a new manga if it can stick at that spot sooner or later it could break into the top 3 the series just has to stay consistently good for the next couple of years. And I have faith the author will keep it good for a long time judging by his previous work which has all been great. For now, people should keep a close eye on this series. Now for Samurai 8: The Tale of Hachimaru.

Samurai 8: The Tale of Hachimaru

This one is pretty obvious why it might be part of Shounen Jump’s Next Big Three Manga in the future. The main reason being this is a new manga by Masashi Kishimoto creator of Naruto. His name alone is enough to make this series something that will carry this series. So it’s obvious this will be a big name series in the future. For now, it’s just one it’s baby legs but will slowly start to take over and rise to the top as time goes on. So this is something every shounen jump fan should differently keep an eye on. Expect big things from this one.

And that pretty much wraps up this article about Shounen Jump’s Next Big Three Manga. If you don’t agree with the current 3 I chose out of the 5 and my reasoning for why I think they the next Shounen Jump’s Next Big Three Manga. Then be sure to share what you think are the 3 shounen jump manga out of the 5 above that deserves the Shounen Jump’s Next Big Three Manga title.

  1. I’ve been pleasantly surprised about Dr. Stone as well. I first learned about the show from another blog and it’s been really fun to watch. It’s a crazy plot where a teenager finds himself with a few friends stuck in a world where everyone has been turned to stone. I can’t wait to see what happens with them next…
