Whoa, what a huge turn of irony...... their fan is now competing with them?? wow, just when you think this couldn't get even more awesome.
Well, at the same time, it's also something to be happy about, that they inspired someone!
I wonder where this will go from here though. I wonder if this guy will serve as anything more than yet another rival. I hope he's more than just that
The chapter is out.

yeah chapter 116 is out by Sleepyfans
on page 1 he said i...i think this is just a short of a thing i wanted to do!!
huh...!? oh ,right .... physiological battle.....!
As for the chapter, am I the only one who didn't get it when Takagi said the series they were reading was almost like serious humor? My understanding of serious humor has always been nebulous (because it is not something that one can plan, especially not a series around), but this makes even less sense than the PCP things we've seen that probably weren't serious humor either.

I do think a dark series like "Classroom of truth" would be awesome to see in Jump. Except, like Mashiro said, some of the story leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I'm all for a dark series in Jump but I wouldn't like it if the author kills off all the character in the series. That's way too overboard for a dark series.
Well,I think that the author submitted "The classroom of truth" in the treasure award,because he wanted that Ashirogi would rank his work,no?
Again, can't wait what Ashirogi Muto will create. Ohba for sure have the story already laid out that is better than the 'Classroom of Truth'.
Well for me creating a new rival that is like a junior for them is not that great I think something that they introduce some veteran that is way better than them and Eiji to make things more interesting... Or having a rival against another company other than Jump..
The story was awesome. I wish I could read the whole thing beginning to end like them. I really was into it while reading it.
Sadly, JUMP is guilty with following the whole "Don't kill this character because fans don't want him dead" or "Don't worry, this dead character will come back to life in any kind of way" or any reason that makes any character illogically alive no matter what kind of deadly injury they get.
And by making your main characters invincible or "unkillable" all the time, the readers will never take a fight seriously anymore. It'll be like "Oh, this villain will kill this character! Never mind, he will survive in the end like the first twentieth time."
And speaking of plot twists, I totally did not expect that manga to be from their "Number 1 fan". Totally did not expect it! Although I'm worried he would be yet another rival like they don't have enough already.
I think the problem with killing off all your characters at once is that it is almost impossible to continue the series. (If you do it one at a time and have been working in new characters, it can be done) In this case: how does this series continue beyond the 10 chapters written? (We obviously don't know because we haven't read it) Wouldn't it just be better to publish the 10 chapters, then put out a volume than attempt to continue? (not every story needs to be hundreds of chapters long. I've enjoyed 1 volume works) Would Jump do that?
The costumes in Shinjitsu no Kyoushitsu remind me too much of D.Gray-Man (not to mention Saeki looks like Lenalee). In a way, it's also looking quite like Enigma, to which a similarity was drawn in the manga itself by Saikou, and Saeki also looks like Shigeru.
I wonder if Ashirogi will meet this "Ashirogi Jr" in real life. Might be interesting, and I wonder what kind of guy he is. I'm thinking he might be like that guy, Shizuka Ryuu (was that his name).
