Ultimo Ousts Bobobo-Bo Bo-Bobo

AICN has posted its latest AICN Anime column, and here's the first news tidbit from it (of several): VIZ's Shonen Jump, true to form, is shifting one older manga out in favor of a new up-and-comer. In this case, Yoshio Sawai's wacky comedy Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo will be departing monthly serialization in the magazine in favor of tankoubon-only releases.

I don't know how many of you SJ subscribers will be sad to see Bobo depart, but I'm a little jealous of y'all given what it's being replaced by: Hiroyuki Takei and Stan Lee's Ultimo! Yes, the epic collaboration is finally going to see print. We did actually know that it was going to be running in the July issue, so the real news here is which manga is being pushed out for it.

Okay, Shonen Jump readers, tell us: are you excited for Ultimo? Or will you miss the Bos too much?

I can't wait, should be a nice change actually. I never liked Bobobo-bo much anyway to be honest. ^^;;
Plus, reading the prologue chapter back when I first heard about it left me wanting to read more, so without any more to add. Bring on Ultimo!
