posted on by Karen Ressler
Viz Media's digital English edition of Weekly Shonen Jump confirmed on Monday that it will begin a new round of "Jump Start" titles with Keiji Amatsuka's Sogo Jikan Jigyo Gaisha Daihyo Torishimariyaku Shacho Senzoku Hisho Tanaka Seiji (General Time Company Director President Special Secretary Seiji Tanaka) next Monday. The manga will debut in Japan in Sheisha's Weekly Shonen Jump on the same day.
Amatsuka previously published the NECRO manga in Shonen Jump NEXT in 2015, and published a one-shot with the same "Tanaka Seiji" title in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2016.
The new Tanaka Seiji manga follows the titular character, who is a private secretary. With Tanaka's support, a company can become invincible and can achieve any future it desires. The first chapter will have an opening color page and will have 54 pages.
For its "Jump Start" initiative, Viz Media's Shonen Jump publishes the first three chapters of a new manga simultaneously with the Japanese release.
Shueisha's Shonen Jump will also debut Takahide Totsuno's Alice to Taiyō manga on July 2.
