I really would have preferred Assassination Classroom (Ansatsu Kyōshitsu), which started the issue before this series. It's by Yusei Matsui who also made Neuro - Supernatural Detective (Majin Tantei Nōgami Neuro) and I can easily see it lasting longer than Takama-ga-hara because of that and its more original premise.

Are added series decided by the week they started in Japan in order to keep it to the two week delay?

I am confused why hasn't Yusei Matsui's artwork improved? I checked out Assassination Classroom, and the premise is interesting but the artwork is a bit weak. And I can actually see this story getting a dull as time goes by but I could be wrong.

Anyways, I am looking forward to Takama-ga-hara, if this is what it looks like "a manga about delinquents" I am all for it because we need one (though sure its a battle manga but with delinquents :D)!!!

I am writing to inform you that I haven't received the last two (2) print issues. I haen't been able to read the on-line issues due to the fact that I cannot download in Puerto Rico.- (Not available in this region). Tried to call 1-800-541-7919. and is constantly busy. If I cannot receive Shonen Jump on line, I am now requesting a refund of my membership as of February 2012.

Please respond as soon as possible.

I have recently noticed that I do not have the January issue of shonen jump of 2012. While I was looking for the God card The Winged dragon of Ra that comes with the issue, so I was hoping to get that issue sent to me please, The only reason why this notice is coming now is because I happened to look at the side of my manga collection and noticed that the January issue was not there. If you could send the issue I would would ever be so grateful.
