Shueisha Launches 2 New Regular Grand Jump Sister Magazines
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website for Shueisha's Grand Jump magazine is listing the Grand Jump Mecha special edition magazine with a third issue slated for November 28, and Shueisha will continue to publish a new issue in odd-numbered months. (Note: The Japanese word "mecha" means "absurd" or "extreme" and does not refer to robots or mechanics.)
Shueisha will also launch a new magazine titled Grand Jump Mucha on December 26, and will continue to publish a new issue in even-numbered months. Grand Jump Premium is being rebranded as Grand Jump Mucha, so Shueisha will no longer publish the Grand Jump Premium magazine. The final issue of Grand Jump Premium, the magazine's November issue, launched on Wednesday.
The new Grand Jump Mecha issue will launch with two new manga: Million Dollar Digger by Hirokazu Ochiai (Eyami no Kami), and Chijo Lesson (Female Pervert Lesson) by Noa and Nayuka Mine. Million Dollar Digger will also publish chapters in Grand Jump Mucha, so that it will have a new chapter every month.
The first issue of Grand Jump Mecha shipped in November 2017, and the second issue shipped on May 30.
Grand Jump Mucha will launch with a new manga by Atsushi Saraike tentatively titled Bakarian. The magazine will also carry previous serializations for other manga, including Osamu Akimoto's Black Tiger manga (the manga launched in December 2016 in Grand Jump and is serialized in the magazine), Koko wa Ima kara Rinri desu. by Shiori Amase, and Bartender 6stp by Araki Joh and Osamu Kajisa.
