Editors are encouraged to add more recent information. The term is generally used only by English-language fandom although some fans have noted that Japanese lurkers on 2ch know what it means and have begun to use it in Japanese fandom. Some fans also use the term, Holy Shounen Trinity or HSTto refer to the Big 3, although HST is meant to refer to currently running shounen titles rather than series that have been completed.
The Big 3 were One PieceNaruto and Bleachbeginning in  —thus, some consider "the Big 3" to refer to only those three series and the s period of animanga fandom.
However, the stability of the trinity shifted around when Naruto ended in Bleach's fanbase was diminished by the time manga ended in Currently, One Piece is still considered to be the 1 of the Big 3, and shows no sign of leaving. Boku No Hero Academia has quickly risen to be one of the most popular current series. However, it is generally agreed that shounen manga is no longer as homogenous as it once was, and that there are no longer three common gateways to animanga fandom.Most Popular Anime Ranking (1980 - 2020)
Many fans point out that the idea of a "Big 3" is false because the gap in rankings and sales between One Piece and Naruto, and then Naruto and Bleach are usually very large. Often times, Bleach ranks much lower than the top 3 in the weekly polls conducted by Weekly Shounen Jump. Other fans, however, say that while that may be true in Japan, when talked about in an international context, the discrepancies change since One Piece is often not the most popular of the three, as is in the case of North America.
Some fans have wondered if a manga series not serialized in Weekly Shounen Jump could ever become one of the Big 3. Many fans agree that a title serialized in monthly installments could not due to a lower publication frequency, which encourages less fan discussion from week to week.
In this case, the most often cited candidate tends to be Fairy Tail. Some fans have pointed out that other Big 3s have existed in the past. This era is thought of by many people as the Golden Age of Weekly Shounen Jump, when its circulation was at its peak.
Most people admit though that no other three titles have dominated for as long as the current Big 3. Some people have suggested that the lengthy dominance of the current Big 3 is unhealthy for the manga industry, and Weekly Shounen Jump in particular.
Many readers seem to feel that the editors of Weekly Shounen Jump encourage the mangaka to draw out their storylines unnecessarily. Bleach's place in the Big 3 began to be debated due, by general opinion, a drop in quality, and subsequent drop in popularity in the s. The manga began to sink down the weekly rankings . Init was ranked 5 in sales, coming behind Kimi ni Todokea shoujo manga serialized monthly, and Fairy Tail.
InBleach hit last place in the rankings. Fans often speculate about the reasons Bleach continued serialization even though its performance is no longer as strong as in previous years and wonder if the Weekly Shounen Jump editors simply won't let Kubo Tite end the series.
Others think that "it seems kinda sad to see a series that once did so well crashing and burning like this. Bleach ultimately ended extremely abruptly, with many fans disappointed by the lack of resolution of major plotlines. Many have speculated that Bleach's diminished popularity finally led to its cancellation and hasty wrap-up.
As a result of Bleach's decline, some fans of Naruto and One Piece took to poking fun at the other title's supposed flaws, implying various reasons why the series was sliding down the ranks. Some fans point out that the other two titles are not without their own flaws. Many readers say they refuse to read One Piece because they find the art style off-putting and the premise of a boy with a rubber body childish. Some readers criticize Naruto for the treatment of its female characters.

If you were an anime and manga fan coming up in the early s, chances are you remember the "Big 3" titles of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump. These were the three titles that stood as pillars of the magazine for quite some time and often always took the top three spots of the rankings.
These series blossomed into huge franchises in their own right, and each now have their own massive fandoms. What three series could match the popularity and widespread appeal of these three?
One Piece is still around, but what about the other two? So what does the last one go to? The tail end of the s was especially transformative for manga and anime availability. Anime broke through more into general pop culture, and is entering the s in one of its highest peak yet, and manga was eventually brought into this fold in the final two years of the s as Viz Media made a ton of manga available legally through the Shonen Jump digital library.
This meant that those who fell in love with an anime series now had a much easier, legal, and sometimes free way to check out the manga too. Both series started in andran for a few years in the magazine, and blew up even more with the successful releases of their anim e.
Bleach and Naruto got huge through physical sales, but perhaps digital sales might make numbers boom even more? With both of the series dominating sales charts and Demon Slayer continuing to dominate anime charts months after its initial releasemaybe we finally have a new three pillars?
But what do you think? If not these series, then what could be considered the top manga in the magazine? Are there any others that have reached this level of popularity? Is it even possible to have a new Big 3 at all?

List of best-selling manga
Within the past few years, fans have seen a new crop of series arise from the time-tested magazine, with several of them even getting anime adaptations of late and conquering the Japanese airwaves. As modern readers and viewers begin to get tired of the same old, battle series formula, the new generation has seen popularity spread between a strong variety of genres, reinventing the wheel between suspense, sports, and even cooking.
Updated May 25, by Sean Cubillas: Weekly Shonen Jump is a constantly moving publisher whose lineup of greats and upstarts is always growing. Whether these are To-Be Heroes or series that left their mark in other ways, here are a few more Shonen series that this list just couldn't keep off its shelf. Chainsaw Man is by far the freshest on this list. Released in Decemberthis series helped qualm any worries that Shonen Jump was running out of ways to portray high-octane action. Denji is another young protagonist forsaken by a dead beat father whose actual death leaves him with a nearly insurmountable debt.
With only his chainsaw dog, Pochita, at his side, Denji has to work odd jobs for the Yakuza. That is until they betray him and sacrifice him to the Zombie Devil. However, Pochita sacrifices himself to save Denji, having him reborn as a Devil himself! Having been picked up by a Devil-fighting organization in the aftermath, Denji now struggles to fight Devils and find purpose in life. Comedy is a bit of a gimmick act within the magazine and the anime industry as a whole, as the rule of diminishing returns kind of keeps these series from picking up any real momentum.
For the magazine, comedy manga are usually kept as the back issues, a little extra something to entertain dedicated readers and kids. The cast from there grows as the series begins to develop its own formula, gaining enough momentum to actually get its own anime within the most recent season.
We Never Learn isn't the only comedy series on the block. Kusuo Saiki isn't a normal, everyday high schooler, but he sure wants to be.
Gifted at birth with extraordinary psychic powers, Saiki seems to attract all sorts of trouble and odd characters when he lets his powers loose. Having to hide his powers from his friends and society as a whole, Saiki is a prime example that overpowered mutants have problems, too.
World Trigger is a sleeper hit that's been helping build the modern generation of Shonen series without many people knowing. However, it's developed a strong cult following, currently surviving its move to Jump Square, and has a second season in the works. The series itself focuses on a world ravaged by an alien invasion. The Border Defense Agency must fight against strange creatures called "Neighbors," using the power of Triggers.
Though the battle has gone on for ages, Border now seems to have a new weapon, when a Neighbor, Yuuma Kuga, suddenly joins their ranks in disguise. With the classic formula and fresh minds, the duo in recent years have been able to breathe in fresh life to the brand.
