With three series gone and a fourth about to end, I gotta say that I'm super excited on what these three will be like overall. Anyone read Bozebeats and Act-Age yet? How are they if you have? Still hoping Tite Kubo is gonna release his one-shot/hopeful series soon too!

^ You can read the first three chapters of both Act-Age and Bozebeats in Viz's free section here. I liked Bozebeats more than Act-age, but I didn't think either of them were really standouts.

Anyway, I hope at least one of these new series is good enough to stick around.

Honestly I'm just not really feeling anything that's been coming out lately. I think Golem Hearts was promising when it started, it almost had a Nanatsu no Taizai feel to the art style and that was exciting. But that rushed ending, oh boy~

Shonen Jump needs more actual standout series. I think a lot of the problem is not too many people are up to the challenge of a weekly series. Good series are truly a gem to find these days!

I honestly feel like they have alot of stand out series with One Piece, Black Clover, Haikyuu, MHA and others. What they need are series that can grow into more stand outs with time. I feel like Full Drive and Golem Hearts could've been so much more if they have the time to develop.

I doubt it will be much on the "dark fantasy" part, this is shounen jump we're talking about after all.

Clearly you haven't heard of The Promised Neverland.

When's the last time you saw a seinen manga in Shounen Jump?

Oh no, I've heard very good things about it, but I haven't read it personally.
