Those same series are offered on tons of platforms though. Basically any digital manga platform starts up and Kodansha "partners" with them and dumps the first 3 or so volumes of a bunch of series (some get more) then never add more.

Pretty exciting if true.
This could be a step in the right direction if they announce more simulpubs

I don’t see original nnt, nagatoro, any slime spin-offs, cell at work code black, etc. Not much magazine pocket representation. Wonder why they didn’t add them and but if this is like a manga+ app it sounds good

As I said this is nothing new. Kodansha has "partnerships" with basically any comic reading site/app. They usually just dump a few volumes for a large amount of series (typically the same ones as elsewhere), never update or add more and add the same simulpubs that everyone already has.

Surprising that Tokyo Revengers isn't on the list. I would have expected it to snag the first place

This is for new volume releases, TR volume 23 comes out next month
I hope by then we could have a week where the series sells over 1M in Oricon. If it's growth continues with this trend TR's next volume might just cross 400K in it's first week and do it.

Sounds doable with the live action coming early next month

Oh. A little underwhelming but I hope it helps take a load off his shoulders.

Issue 31 COVER and LCP: Kanojo mo Kanojo

Blue Lock still hasn't gotten any WSM cover since it started serialization, but everything after it (except Love of Magic and Amagami) have gotten a cover in any moment kek
