It ended well I thought, glad it got to stay alive long enough to get a decent ending. There's a special chapter coming out this fall, looking forward to it ^_^

Series has great art, decent story, and fun characters that added up to a very enjoyable series for me.

They should replace with a manga similar to The Breaker: Old Waves.

Sounds interesting...might give it a shot sometime.

WSJ love to axe.

Yes• axe every new manga. Must stop them from bringing Beelzebub down from the weekly jump rankings.

Man, these mangas are dropping like flies now. Premise sounds interesting though so I might give this a shot, maybe.

I wonder what's gonna replace it. Another sports manga? Something supernatural?

Even though I've been expecting this for months, it is still quite sad. I really enjoyed this series, and I would have gladly buy a subscription to SJAlpha just for this one manga back then get it got picked up by it (but since it's not available in my country I never could). I wonder what kind of finale it will have, looking foward to it.

Wonder if scanlations will finally catch up now.

Not surprised it got axed with it's rankings but I really did enjoy the series.

It had to be expected . For several weeks , Cross Manage has been really poorly ranked ; so it's normal for it to be cancelled ...

This one is so expected it shouldn't even have had the news here. Seriously, this remained in the bottom five since its first couple chapters. The only reason it didn't get cut sooner was due to a few other series that somehow managed to do even worse, basically luck.

Anyway, the oneshot of this was awesome but the series was somewhat mediocre. Of course I didn't read much though since scanlation stopped once it was picked up by SJ alpha or however it is called nowadays.

But let me reiterate, the oneshot is very good, one of the best ones I've read. It's slightly rough around the edges since the author was a beginner but that somehow added to its charm. I really wonder how he f***ed up the series so much.

It's difficult to survive in WSJ. Some writers need to change the magazine.

Awww, I actually liked this series a lot :(

A shame, the premise and the characters were good but it felt like it wasn't really aimed at the core audience of WSJ. I'd have wished they just changed its magazine instead, though.

Well that's too much for a series that had a fixed place in the bottom since it got published.

Wait, Cross Manage is below Koisuru Edison? Or just in the bottom three.
I meant in the bottom 5, or 3 now that you mention it. It seems to me both series are fighting for the last place. Koisuru should be next I guess.
