Hmm interesting. I'll look forward to what Togashi has to offer and maybe some of the other new series.

I was getting worried for Soul Catcher(s) being cancelled as it was consistently raking near the bottom. But luckily it was saved from that fate by moving to Jump Next!! I'm assuming that iShoujo and Stealth Symphony are being cancelled then. Sounds about right.

As for Barrage's Horikoshi getting a new manga in Jump, good on him, though I wasn't too fond of Barrage when it was being serialized. Boku no Hero Academia's premise would normally interest me but I'm already following two good series which share the same premise and have already proven themselves to be excellent with great MCs: Toaru Majutsu no Index and Iris Zero for different reasons obviously.

Boku no Hero Academia sounds like it has cross-cultural appeal. I expect to see it in English Jump


AND FUDGE THIS WORLD if Stealth Symphony gets canned.

Japan, what the hell is wrong with you?!

Yeah, such a shame that Stealth Symphony is likely to hit the bucket soon..

It has/had a very huge amount of potential..
It was building a big, and interesting world..

These days, most people don't care about exposition, they just want action..

It seems to have fast forwarded towards the big twist, rushing to its end, but atleast it won't end badly..

Sensei no Bulge/Barrage had similar potential too, although not as much.. I wish that series, and Stealth Symphony, could just go on as the author wanted..

Yeah agreed, I'm happy to see that Barage's author is being serialized again, I thought Barrage was interesting, and I really liked the art. Same with Stealth Symphony. I really hope it avoids cancellation, its a very good manga *sighs*

I'm happy that Illegal Rare is doing quite good though. I have only read the first chapter when it came out and it looks good. If it gets to 30 chapters I'll check it out. Its not often you see a new manga doing well in Shonen Jump.

I'll check all of these new manga out when they come out. I'm always open to new manga in the magazine.

It really does seem like new serials in Jump aren't doing so well. I may not have been reading Stealth Symphony, but even if it does get axed I hope it can at least end on its own terms somehow and its author can have another fresh start soon (I'd be really interested in seeing a hard-core sci-fi series by this guy one day).

So I guess after two cancelled series, Horikoshi is just "fuck it, here's your battle manga."

I really don't think I'll ever be able to forgive Shonen Jump for cancelling a series with so much potential as Stealth Symphony.

Even today the scars left by axing Double Arts still remain to a certain extent.

When I read the headline, I thought North America's English digital Shonen Jump was getting three new series. They should have kept the name Shonen Jump Alpha to avoid confusion.

Hero Academia--You know, at this point it might be more original if the MC in an "everyone has superpowers" world had superpowers, too.

For those that read/have knowledge of the Japanese Weekly Shonen Jump, about how many series have current regular serializations? I can see that with 13 new series starting soon, it's possible other series will be axed or moved to another magazine because that's a lot of new series.

There's 20ish series currently running in the magazine.

I though there were only 3 series starting (4 if you count the mini-series). Where are you getting 13 from?
