It's only the rival for the series if a series has a "series-wide rival" which most don't...especially a series that just started. I doubt a manga that's 10 chapters long has very many options.
Seeing that they've chosen either frenemies or complete villains, I think choosing Kitora as the rival could be telling us that the manga might focus instead on the inner workings of Border as opposed to developing an antagonist among the Neighbors, which just might not work out well. At least with choosing Mikumo, it's vague enough so as not to associate him as a serious antagonist of the story, but more of a trivial rival like in Saiki or Kiruko.

Or rather the rival was a cool theme after launching Jump VS. Honestly I don't think they thought much about it for the new series when they was no evident character.
...I think my favourite one is Saiki rival :-)
and the special collaboration between Toriko, Souma and Gekikara?
So is Medaka getting a special chapter on Jump NEXT like Nura did?
So they confirmed Koro-sensei , i want one
And, what is that HxH part about?
And there was no Hunter x Center this week?
About the TOC, AK is still doing very well, and i'm glad Gintama is going up, the actual caps are awesome.
That being said, the choice for rivals is quite different, series to series, isn't it?
I wonder if the fujoshi readers will like itI'm glad Medaka got to be on the cover one last time. ;_; Now at least we know her true rival is Kumagawa. And that color page is really sweet too.
Edit: Man, those Jump figurines look so sweet! I'd definitely get Medaka-chan and Oga if I could. Korosensei too.

I hope VIZ picks up a new series soon for their Shonen Jump. I'm getting a little bored with World Trigger.

Those figures look incredible.. They need better representation for older series, though.. I can't believe Tsuabasa, Hanamichi or Kenshiro haven't been shown yet..
i wouldn't hold your breth for kenshiro, he's not a jump property anymore
but yeah older stuff'd be nice. i'd lap up an Isamu figure
I hope they include Kenshiro, kinda like they did for J!US they need to ask the right holders, that didn't stop whomever makes the figures to ask for Hibari Kun and Kinnikuman rights, though I agree its different from Jump's "traitors" (City Hunter and Hokuto no Ken mangakas) which don't have figures released in this collection -so far.
