Great video, I love how it included basically all the characters (except very recent ones) and captured their personality super well.
The manga deserves way more recognition. It's a hilarious and super wholesome series with a great cast.

Man I really enjoy Magu-chan so this was pretty fun. Makes me sad though that there still hasn't been any word on an official physical release. Only the big action titles are the ones that get physical releases in the States but I really want this series on my shelf :/

There might not really be a release, honestly. The manga is doing bad numbers in Japan and, if things don't change, might get axed very soon. Which is a real shame since it's such a cute manga.

No wonder most current mangas on Shonen Jump are battle shonen. Mission: Yozakura Family, Mashle and Undead Unlock have good numbers and all of them are battle shonen.

Well, nobody knows the future, and I think that Shueisha is not interested in filling the the whole magazine with battle stories. The newest releases, Witch Watch and Kowloons/Nine Dragons' fit in other genres (and Matsui's Elusive Samurai, to some extent)

I like Roboco and Magu-chan a lot, but I admit that Japanese sense of humor is usually not very understood overseas ...

The numbers are perfectly adequate for a comedy-manga and also caused by underprinting, meaning they actually sold out in many places. Stop spreading misinformation and panic.

However, it might indeed never get a print release in the West, because they do prioritize the top-sellers here.

Aww, this is adorable!
I agree that Magu-chan is a cute, wholesome manga!
