Oh, something by Iwashiro? That could be interesting. I was quite fond of Psyren. I thought it sad that it was forced to rush to its ending while, in my humble opinion, other Jump works (*cough* Bleach) are kept on life support well, well, well beyond their peak. (Well, I say 'sad', but, to be fair, I can't really complain about a Weekly Shōnen Jump manga not overstaying its welcome.)

Always up for another round of new strips. Kind of hoping the 'dog poop' to 'keeper' ratio is a bit better this time. Preferably something sci-fi or super-natural that isn't anywhere near a High School.

Agreed.. Too many school life series are already running in it.
Psi Saiki, AssClass, Haikyuu, Sumo, Ping pong, SexBot, Ace attorney, nisekoi, soma (sorta?), hero academia (also sorta).

Oh man, I really dug Psyren so I'm hoping we get something just as awesome from him this time. Also hoping these series will last longer than Stealth Symphony or Hi-Fi Cluster did. (Both of which I felt were series with real potential to go somewhere when they were axed.)

A series by Yuki Tabata? I've been waiting for this for ages, I thought Hungry Joker was really good. Hopefully this one lasts

How'd Psyren go? I kind of lost track of it after Viz's print Shonen Jump dropped it.
Can't say I'm all that interested in another detective manga either, but a good manga-ka can make almost any premise interesting.

The Detective Story one-shot was extremely generic and not particularly interesting. Grasping at straws, Shueisha.

Well when your magazine is aimed at teenagers in japan taking place in a school is kinda expected Laughing Not to say it can't happen of course (One Piece, HxH) but I wouldn't hold my breath. (that and personally I don't really care about setting as much as how entertaining/well written it actually is)

Nice to see that psyren guy get another work out but another mirror manga? I can't remember what I thought about hungry joker but nice to see him get another shot as well. Hopefully something worthwhile will come out, if not then oh well.

Took a little while to figure out what its core narrative would be (the survival game bit drops away), then stuck to that pretty solidly, complicated only the fact that traveling back and forth in time tends to complicate any story. Looked like the author was planning for a significantly longer run before he got the notice he'd have to wrap it up - he managed to find a pretty decent stopping point, but a few things still felt rushed (I think he planned to sort of continue the story on the side - perhaps in doujinshi).

Agreed with above, although I think the ending turned out much better then a lot of other series.

Belzeebub was very entertaining as well, so I look forward to his next work as well.

They're all given at least 18 chapters, so none of them will be removed that soon.

Yeah, I liked both of those series too. Barrage also, which became incredibly rushed when Horikoshi clearly meant for it to go on for a while, but his next series has become highly successful, so it's softened the blow.

There was a one-shot of Mirror God, though I forgot what Viz called it. I liked it, so I'm glad it's being promoted to a full series.

Oddly, what stood out to me was that the one-shot's female lead is 20 years old--that is, an adult working a job. I found it a bit refreshing after seeing so many female leads in anime being middle-school or high-school age.

That Iwashiro story looks to be a retake on that one shot he did last year. Aaargh! What was it called again?....But either way, i'm going into most of these blind as per ussual but lets hope for some good stories.
