This year's 52nd issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine published the final chapters on Monday of Hiroshi Shiibashi's Yui Kamio Lets Loose (Kamio Yui wa Kimi wo Yui) and Kentarō Fukuda's Double Taisei (Futari no Taisei) manga.

Shiibashi launched Yui Kamio Lets Loose in Weekly Shonen Jump on March 11. Viz Media is publishing the series in English digitally, and Shueisha is also publishing the manga in English on its MANGA Plus website. Shueisha describes the manga:

What is the terrifying secret behind beautiful honor student Yui Kamio's hair?! And why must she always keep it tied up? Super popular Kiito's high school life is plunged into chaos by the worst classmate imaginable! Hiroshi Shiibashi, the creator of Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan, delivers a comedy that isn't afraid to let loose!

Shueisha will publish the manga's third volume in Japan on December 4, and the fourth volume on February 4.

Shiibashi is the creator of the Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan, Illegal Rare, and Tsukumogami: Teito Jōhōbu Tokkenchobōin Serosero Nanashiki manga. Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan ran from 2008 to 2012 with 25 volumes and inspired two television anime seasons in 2010 and 2011. Viz Media published the manga in English.

Fukuda started the Double Taisei manga in Weekly Shonen Jump on May 20. Viz Media and MANGA Plus are both publishing the manga in English. Shueisha describes the manga:

Genius shogi player Taisei Amado has a secret...Kentarō Fukuda, the creator of Devilyman and Shinigiwa, brings his beautiful art to a shogi story that you won't be able to put down!

Shueisha will publish the manga's third and final compiled volume on January 4.

Fukuda previously published the two-volume Devilyman manga in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2015. Viz Media published the first three chapters in English simultaneously with its Japanese release as part of the company's Jump Start initiative.
