Gakkyu Hotei to conclude final arc in Jump+ digital magazine

This year's 24th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine will publish the final chapter of Yū Miki's Cyborg Roggy (Kaizō Ningen Roggy) manga on Monday. The issue is also ending its serialization of Nobuaki Enoki and Takeshi Obata's "shocking court mystery" manga series Gakkyu Hotei: School Judgment.


The issue noted that Shueisha will publish the end of the "Bloody Class Meeting" arc of Gakkyu Hotei in Shueisha's Jump+ digital magazine at the end of May and also in the third compiled volume of the manga. Shueisha published the first compiled volume in Japan on May 1.

Viz Media describes the story of Gakkyu Hotei:

As problems continue to plague the elementary school system, a new solution is enacted in the form of the School Judgment System! Now the young students themselves will be responsible for solving the issues that befall them! But are they up to the task?

The series relaunched in Japan on December 1. Enoki originally ran the first version of this manga under the same title in the Jump Live smartphone manga service in 2013.

Viz Media published the first three chapters of the manga in English in its digital Weekly Shonen Jump magazine as a part of its "Jump Start" initiative in November-December, and then the company added the series as a permanent part of its lineup in December.

Viz Media published the first three chapters of Cyborg Roggy in English in its digital Weekly Shonen Jump magazine as a part of its "Jump Start" initiative. Miki launched the manga in this year's 13th issue on February 23.

Viz Media describes the story as follows:

Ten years ago, artificial biological implants known as "augmentation parts" were introduced into society. At the time, no one suspected the sinister turn of events that would come about because of body augmentations. And as the politicians and police stood by, the world watched as cyborg criminals, otherwise known as "augs," turned the world on its head...

Shueisha will publish the first and second compiled volumes of Cyborg Roggy in Japan in June and July, respectively. The final chapter of the manga asked fans to look forward to Miki's next work.

The combined 22nd and 23rd issue of Weekly Shonen Jump published the final chapter of Itsuki Furuya's Takujō no Ageha: The Table Tennis of Ageha manga on April 27. The same issue launched Masashi Kishimoto's Naruto spinoff manga mini-series, titled Naruto Gaiden: Nanadaime Hokage to Akairo no Hanatsuzuki (Naruto: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring).

The magazine is launching three new series in May in the 24th, 25th, and 26th issues.
