During its "Shonen Jump Alpha Meet-up" panel at FanimeCon on Saturday, North Amercan manga publisher Viz Media announced that its weekly digital anthology Shonen Jump Alpha will add Kōhei Horikoshi's Sensei no Baruji (Barrage) manga. The space battle fantasy will start next week in Shonen Jump Alpha, after launching in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine last Monday.
Viz described the story: "The planet of Industria is in a state of chaos, and its fate lies in the hands of Astro, a good-natured boy from the slums."
Update: More information added. The editors of Shonen Jump Alpha noted that the title can be translated as "Bulge of the War Planet" instead of the finalized English title Barrage.
