This year's 49th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed on Monday that it will launch three new manga in the next three issues.

The first new manga is Yūji Kaku's Ayashimon manga (pictured right center in image above), which will launch in the magazine's 50th issue on November 15. The manga's first chapter will have 54 pages including an opening color page. The 50th issue will also feature the manga on the cover.

The "underside of society battle" manga will start with a mysterious meteor shower that appears on a long autumn night.

Kaku launched the Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku manga on the Shonen Jump+ service in January 2018 and ended it on January 25. Viz Media has released the manga digitally through its Shonen Jump service, and Shueisha also released the manga through its MANGA Plus service. Viz Media also releases the manga in print.

The magazine will launch Daiki Ihara's Mamore! Shugomaru manga (pictured left at bottom right) in the magazine's 51st issue on November 22. The "school activities gag" manga will center on a strange bodyguard.

The magazine will launch Gen Oosuka's Doron Dororon manga (pictured right at bottom right) in the 52nd issue on November 29. The magazine teases that the manga will center on defeating evil supernatural yōkai creatures to the delight of the world.

Update: Daiki Ihara is the artist of the One Piece gag spinoff manga Koi Suru One Piece, which launched on the Shonen Jump+ website and app in June 2018. Ihara posted in a statement in the manga's 141st and latest chapter on Sunday that they will be stopping publication of the manga in order to work on their new Mamore! Shugomaru manga.
