"Shocking court mystery" manga series follows an elementary school court system

Viz Media announced Nobuaki Enoki and Takeshi Obata's "shocking court mystery" manga series Gakkyu Hotei: School Judgment will be added to the line-up of its Weekly Shonen Jump online magazine.

Viz Media describes the story:

As problems continue to plague the elementary school system, a new solution is enacted in the form of the School Judgment System! Now the young students themselves will be responsible for solving the issues that befall them! But are they up to the task?

The series relaunched in Japan on December 1. Enoki originally ran the first version of this manga under the same title in the Jump Live smartphone manga service last year.

Viz ran the series' first three chapters as part of its "Jump Start" initiative. Under the "Jump Start" initiative, Viz is running "almost every single" new series that debuts in Shueisha's original Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in Japan. Viz ran Ippei Goto's science-fiction crime manga series Hi-Fi Cluster as part of "Jump Start" in September, and it then added the series to its regular lineup in October.
