Not taking a single hiatus in over 30 years, Kochikame has earned a Guinness World Record for longest running series in a youth magazine.
This comic masterpiece was based on the classical Chinese tale Journey to the West, but with an emphasis on fighting. It contains all the three elements of a Jump comic; victory, friendship, and effort.
The series’ creator Akira Toriyama had said that among the series characters, Vegeta, Piccolo, Krillin and Mr. Satan were his favorites.
One criticism of the series was that it could seem like and endless series of increasingly stronger enemies to fight. This eventually led to the ending of the series even though it meant discontinuing a series that brought endless revenue from magazines, merchandise, animated series, etc.1-One Piece
This action adventure series follows the pirate Luffy and was created by Eiichiro Oda. When the
popular works of the 90s like Dragon Ball and Slam Dunk ended, Jump found itself out of mega-
hits. It needed something to escape the post-Dragon Ball depression. Despite its satirizing of complex issues like territorial disputes, religion, and war, it refrains from murder or graphic death, explicit sex, and the main hero doesn’t talk of killing. This allowed it to be well received as a young readers’ comic.
