Now I'm really confused. Not only is Mukou Mizu-kun absent from the Issue 11 preview, but the front cover too. I thought all oneshots were supposed to be given prior notice on the preview, or at least placed somewhere on the front cover, but not just stuck on the ToC at random.
Was it a last-minute decision to include Mukou Mizu-kun here?

It's a filler replacement for Bleach/Gintama's share of the pages in the magazine.
It's not an overly rare thing to happen, but it is pretty abrupt in how last minute it seems to have been.
Mikou Mizu-kun is twice? pag.363 and 463?
Well since it was not planned it is normal to be abrupt.
Nice rank for Beelzebub this week. Orherwise not much big surprise wrt previous weeks.
I heard that Sorachi's recovering from the norovirus he had, pissing blood, and has a flu on top of all of that. Maybe that's why Gintama was yanked at the last minute, cause with all of that shit going on, I can only imagine that the stock he has built up is getting low if it isn't already nearly rock bottom. (I can sympathize since I've been in the hospital, had the flu and been having nasty migraines all within the last week.)
....or he needed more time to work on the color page. I wonder what's the occasion? Considering Gin didn't get one for it's movie announcement OR it's seventh anniversery, I wonder what makes the next chapter suddenly worth giving a color page to?
It's not the first time a oneshot has been split into two parts in the magazine.
As for Mukoumizu-kun:
Yupp, there's two one-shots this issue. (Explicitly says so on the author column of the TOC.) One is the version that had been an entry for the Akatsuka Prize, the other is a brand new story.
And please could we call it "Mukoumizu" without the blank in between. That's a common family name in Japan.^^
so there are two oneshots a old and a brand new (different?) one by the same, each around 16 pages long?
Reminds me of Kusuo Saiki's pre-serialisation stuff that'd pop up now and then with new material, so maybe that's a good sign for Mukoumizu in itself.
what it says on the page about the absence of bleach?

Both works are scheduled to continue their serialization in issue #12.
Other than that just stuff like "Thanks for reading", "Sorry for the inconvenience", "Keep up your support" and whatnot.
I watch One Piece feature on imgaine-nation show on NHK World just now.
