Jump Editor in Chief Over Changing Times

Hiroyuki Nakano has stated that nowadays, manga sales increase significantly after an anime ends (Like Demon Slayer), indicating that people watch anime through streaming rather than following weekly like they used to in the recent past. He also mentioned that it takes longer now for a Shonen Jump series to become a hit (Which he possibly attributes to there being more options available nowadays).
