    So Yuuna is improving a bit after the big drop last volume, still needs to improve more to reach earlier volumes' heights but it's something I guess. Should at least get up to 100k this time again.
    Dr. Stone is also doing pretty well.

    From the interview at Miura-sensei's autograph event in Taiwan
    - His inspirations were Bonbonzaka Koukou Engekibu (weird choice, but after looking at it it seems right), Hell Teacher Nube, and DNA².
    - He explains more about how the manga came to be but it was somewhat hard to figure out so won't post that.
    - Karura's introduction was a bit difficult to do, apparently.

    My Hero Academia version is cuter, so it is a win. XD
    I really want the best for Eri... I think it would be a very good idea to introduce her to UA in the future. *-*

    Well, the Mirio/Batman thing is not the only one in this week's MHA chapter, which looks suspiciously like something from an american comic-
    It seems as if Overhaul's latest form was inspired in its design by the Symbiotes from Spiderman:

    Holy hell, I just read them and I couldn't agree more. Really strong chapters from the both of them.

    *152979 *630758 僕 13 1704 (Heroaca)

    Neverland is shaping up to be a great, much needed hit since Heroaca. Depending on its 2nd week it may hit 300k before dropping out although Kodansha's new releases were just released so we'll have to see how it will hold. Soma continues its drop at a steady pace. For reference,
    │226262 (6)│292831│321402│338813│349840┃*,349,840 (*34)┃2017/05|食戟のソーマ 24

    It sold less than volume 24 despite having an extra day of sales. Its to be seen whether this volume will last 4 weeks unlike volume 25.

    Heroaca also has had a nice boost with both volume 13 and 14 hitting 600k back in august. We'll have to see with the year end rankings how much they did in this year.

    OVA bundles don't boost sales. Haikyuu vol 27 had an OVA bundle and it still sold less than Volume 25 despite the same sales time period. The bundles just add a bit to the overall total.

    I was referring to the fact that the number for volume 13 was not the full amount since OVA bundled versions of the volume aren't included in the sales numbers on these lists. That's what I heard anyway; is that not correct?

    Oricon and Shoseki treat them differently as Oricon does report the bundle version but Shoseki treats them as books as opposed to comics so Haikyuu vol 27's bundle didn't show up on Shoseki's weekly ranking but did show up on Oricon. We rarely see their results anyway as Haikyuu and a handful of series are the only ones that actually sell enough to show up on the charts so its best to not consider them for the full amount. What I was referring to was that sometimes people think that these OVA's give a boost to the volume sales when they usually don't. They're too expensive to do so as they cost a little under a regular BD/DVD.

    How does vol. 1-5 sales of Neverland compare with MHA vol.1-5 sales?

    A parody chapter of OP done by the author of Chinyuki. It's promotion for his new series coming September 25th on Jump+.

    Wasn't Kishimoto like someone predicted would happen, but another well-known author teased in the September new series round a while back.

    Neverland still has a way to go before it can reach Heroaca's level. Volume 5 is just slightly above Heroaca volume 2 but Neverland has had much more promotion, including TV promotion, than Heroaca at the same time.

    Looking at Soma for the first 5 volumes for some more reference

    I just take a look at the second mangá of Golden Future Cup (Joreishi Rentarou no Yakusoku).
    Something is telling me that this manga will win the Golden Future Cup, if not win the author will be serialized.

    I just think the author of this one shot has a lot of potential in Jump.
    He in my opinion has a good art.
    Although I have not yet seen the remaining participants, I believe this participant can win.
    If he does not win, I believe that Jump will not leave a talent like his going to another magazine.
    It can be serialized just like Takamasa Moue (author of Ole Golazo and Galaxy Gangs) who participated in a Golden Future Cup and did not win.

    The same feeling I have with this author is the same as I had with WNL when he released the first chapter.
