Unbelievable, so sudden... I was going through his tweets not a week ago and his most recent retweet was yesterday.
May he rest in peace.

A consequence as a result of Takahiro Satou unfortunate death is that the bachi bachi series, a great series, will be left unfinished.

On to another brighter topic, the new series. akatora is going for a an unusual genre in WSC last series, I can remember was kurotora by Suzuki Kai in 2015 which ended with 5 volumes all published at least.
For oni romcom this wont be Izumi first romcom but it will be his first weekly series, the preview art looks fine so i hope he wont have any problems.

Hopefiully these new series can lighten the mood in this tragic period.

I'm glad to see Rokudoe, Atsumare, Iruma, and Beastars on the list, but it is really sad and pretty surprising about Hachi. I didn't think it would sell that badly, in fact, I thought it'd do pretty decently. How did Jitsu wa do when it first released?

I was expecting, at least, Rokudou level of sales.
I don't think Jitsu Wa charted with the first volume, but it always appeared in the Oricon top 50 later on.
Found the first week of sale for some volumes.

Nagi no Oitoma is definitely akita shoten biggest surprise hit this year. Its first volume didn't even manage to rank in shoseki.

50th anniversary of Champion's project is beginning, every issue will have 2 series serialised in past introduced.
In Issue 34th Dokaben and Sho - Pan were the ones introduced - two baseballs series with long runs in the magazine.

Akatora is not very champion like, it feels something fit more for jump. First chapter didn't show to me a style of its own and its in a genre with very little success in Champion, so I wonder about it chances at survival, time will tell.

Its been almost an year since i did posted how i though the magazine was, so here is an update.

Important
Baki
Yowamushi Pedal
Saint Seiya Next Dimension

Semi Important
BEASTARS

Baki, Pedal and Saint Seiya importance to the magazine have not changed. Baki dou has ended but its sequel is likely coming this year. Beastars is the recent addition, it has gained significant attention and its sales have increased but i do not see its at the level of the others in importance.

Old Guard that won't end in the near future
Appare! Urayasu Tekkin Kazoku

There was a name change but things continue as normal for Urayasu

Established
Atsumare! Fushigi Kenkyuubu
Rokudou no Onnatachi
BEASTARS
Rororro
The Vampire Dies in No Time

Some additions, The Vampire dies in No Time due to its stable sales and safe position in the magazine, Rororro for the same reasons.

Stable
Mairishimashita! Iruma-kun
Himawari
Harigane Service

Iruma shows decent sales (acc to shoseki) but its position in the magazine is not quite secure, Himawari sales are not great for how
Harigane sales have dropped and so has its status in the magazine.

New
Junior
Akatora
Weekly Hachi

Hachi first volumes sales have come out but its early for me to judge its status.

Ending soon -
Chosokabe

Very close to reaching 50 chapters but seems like it is at a climax and possibly will end soon

Cancelled in the near future
Mound no Taiyou

Cancelled
Gyakushuu Inferno

all reference to sales are according to shoseki and oricon when relevant.

Has Inferno been officially cancelled yet? I'm glad to see Iruma getting a bit more security after it started out in such a precarious spot.

Not officially but it is doomed and should end with in the next few issues for the future new series round after this current one. for some reason Mound no Taiyou digital volume 1 and 2 will be available on the 23rd of July, before its print releas on the 8th of august.

With a new romcom lined up and sports series which i think the magazine was lacking in, i wonder what the next new series round will hold, i personally would like a horror horror, suspense mystery by possibly Suzuki Yuuta or Sugiura Kou both talented guys that i have seen in champion magazines within this genre.

Junior is looking good to survive at least for now.

Yeah, right now it seems like Champion has a pretty nice variety of genres going on that are doing well. I wonder if they'll stick to trying to find an action/gory/horror series like what Great Old and Inferno both tried to be. Depending on how big the new serialization round is, I could actually see Shutsujin surviving another round since it looks like Inferno definitely will and Mound may both end before it. Plus, isn't there an open slot from Samejima?

Doesn't Magical Girl Site already fit the edgy action horror niche? It's a successful enough series too that they don't need to worry about it (unless it's ending soon? I haven't read it yet myself).

With regards to importance, the only thing I see Beastars lacking in is time, otherwise its just as important as those other three. Its won 4 awards just this year and will most likely continue growing.
