Shueisha announced Jump Square (Jump SQ.) as the new "supreme quality manga magazine" that will succeed the defunct Monthly Shonen Jump starting on November 2. The new magazine will publish on the 4th of every month (barring holidays and special occasions) for 500 yen (about US$4). Shueisha ended Monthly Shonen Jump in June.

Claymore will continue running once a month in Weekly Shonen Jump until the new magazine debuts. Shueisha has announced that the following creators will serialize in the Jump Square magazine:

Masanori Morita (formerly of Rokudenashi Blues) and Takeshi Obata (formerly of Death Note) will publish a one-shot, standalone manga short for the November premiere issue. Shueisha will announce more details for the entire magazine at the beginning of August.
