The first 2017 issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed on December 5 that Naoya Sugita and Saru Hashino are launching two new manga series on Shueisha's Shonen Jump+ online manga app. Sugita launched the Muttsuri Shinken series on Thursday, while Hashino launched a manga adaptation of the Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru television anime on Friday. The first chapters of each manga are available now to read for free.

In addition, the magazine noted that the new chapter of Akira Amano's ēlDLIVE manga published on December 5 features the start of the story's "season 8."

Muttsuri Shinken focuses on Sukehira Mutsuri, a "man among men" who has the ability to use the "Muttsuri Shinken" technique to destroy women's clothes for the purpose of studying their breasts. Sukehira lives in a world where due to the superhuman evolution of women, women rule the world and men are oppressed. Sukehira sets out to change that world using his powers.

Sugita published his Zan manga in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2006, and ended it in the same year. Shueisha published two compiled book volumes for the manga. Sugita also launched a manga adaptation of Toei's Majin Bone anime in Shueisha's Saikyo Jump magazine in 2013. Shueisha published the second and final compiled book volume in May 2015.

Crunchyroll is streaming the Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru as it airs in Japan, and it describes the story:

In the year 2205, the past becomes threatened by the historical revisionists who seek to change it. Protecting history becomes the task of a boisterous band of swords that are brought to life, including the glamorous Kashu Kiyomitsu and the kindly Yamatonokami Yasusada. Beyond their battles, these legendary swords from different eras lead charming daily lives.

The anime premiered in Japan on October 2. Funimation is also streaming an English broadcast dub for the series. The anime is based on DMM's Tōken Ranbu "sword personification training game," which takes famous swords from Japanese history and interprets them as bishōnen.

Hashino is also currently serializing a manga adaptation of the Psycho-Pass 2 television anime. The manga launched in Mag Garden's Monthly Comic Garden magazine in 2014. Mag Garden published the manga's fourth compiled book volume on November 10.
