Does Devil Point appear to be a battle shonen? Super pumped for Amano's return next issue!!!
But I don't find it bad.

Yeah, the tagline of Devil point mentions granting 'your' wishes. Doesn't scream battle shounen to me, but who knows really.
Gotta say though, I prefer Sket Dance's character designs to it so far. Hopefully the story itself isn't as cliched as the adverts make it sound.

I read it. (Devil Point) It was good, and actually only kind of cliched! (Well the best you're gonna get out of Jump anyway.) I might break my rule about not translating Jump manga and work on it if someone doesn't beat me to it. (Which is one of the many reasons why I don't translate Jump manga.) Otherwise someone will get to it soon I think. I still think Sket Dance 'looks' better, but this had a nice plot for what it was. Like Peach Pluck before it, I don't really think it has what it takes to be a serial (especially in Jump), but I'm not an editor so what do I know?
This week's and final episode for Sakiyomi JumBang; this week focuses Yu-Gi-Oh Arc-V.

I think this might be the announcement (or just something pretty neat)
It's a campaign for the following couple of weeks that lets you get the first page of any WSJ manga by taking a pic of the last page of the latest chapter with your smartphone, the trick is that it's the first page for next week!!!
