This year's 10th issue of Shueisha's Young Jump magazine is announcing on Thursday that it will launch three new manga series in the 11th, 13th, and 14th issues.
Yokohama-sen Doppelganger (Yokohama Line Doppelganger, seen bottom right in image) by Vanessa Chihiro Tamaki is a personal story of two people who fight against fate in the midst of a chain of serial murders. In the crime pursuit suspense manga, the two protagonists can only believe in themselves. The series will debut in the 11th issue on February 13.
Yoshiyuki Murakami (Shinyaku [Kyojin no Hoshi] Hanagata) draws Barcelona no Taiyō (The Sun of Barcelona, bottom left). The magazine advertises that the story brings "high school soccer to the highest level in the world!?" The manga will launch in the 13th issue on February 27.
Kazuki Funatsu (Addicted to Curry) pens the third and final new series, Yōkai Shōjo -Monsuga- (Monster Girl -MonsGir-, top). The monster-battling romantic comedy focuses on an erotically cute girl, whose attractive beauty has a secret. The manga will launch in the 14th issue on March 6.
Funatsu ended his Addicted to Curry manga after about 11 years in 2012.
