Finally a new batch starts:

Issue 22 Bilocators by Tanabe Kyousuke (oneshot from 2017 https://shincomi.shogakukan.co.jp/viewer/81/02/0403/)
Issue 24 Kakeau Tsuki hi by Fukui Sei (author of Yukosae Tatakaeba)
Issue 25 Arata Kangatari resumes (restarts at remastered Volume 13, with new chapters from issue 32 onwards)
Finally. Ironically it's only really two new serializations but it's a start. Glad to see Watase is back as well!

Almost a whole year and only 2 new series and they look okay at most, well, at least the 2nd one picked my interest.

About Arata Kangatari, i wonder how this will work, because wasn't Watase basically rewriting parts of the manga from the start with the new editions? so the manga will just pick up from the last chapter published in the magazine or in the last volume?

Apparently, the series will publish chapters from the New Edition/Remaster of Volume 13 of the manga in magazine issues #25 to #31, and the new chapters will start from issue #32 and onward.

New series preview

*cracks knuckles* This is what I was born to do

Bilocators by Kyousuke Tanabe Starting in combined issues 22/23

"I've decided starting now that I'll never go outside again." The super indoors type boy Takahiko Amano(?) Had several terrible misfortunes occur on a certain day (cut off). "Be released!! From the body, a life of loneliness and a tragic fate!!

Kakeau Tsukihi by Sei Fukui Staring in issue 24

Best friends Yo and Tsuki come to the capital with dreams of being entertainers. They live in a confined space and only have 300 yen to live off of, but because they're together there are bound to be laughs......right? Their modest lives in striving toward their huge dreams begins!

Arata is, well, Arata. As stated before The chapters beginning in Issue #25 will be from the remaster volume #13 and then on July 7th (issue 32) new chapters will begin. Oddly this is written as if a new work is starting in this issue but that doesn't seem to make sense to announce here and like this.

Bilocators sounds like it'll be fun, and I like Fukui's sense of humor so I'm looking forward to both of these. I haven't read Arata but perhaps now that I cover the entire magazine weekly it might be time to start.

How long it's been since Sunday got a "battle action" manga? Tanabe Kyousuke's art still felt rather unpolished in his last oneshot and for action manga, it can be make-or-break so hoping that it doesn't "hold" his work.

I'm really happy that Fukui is back. Didn't think that Yuko cancel was deserved so I hope he makes it with this series.

Conan and Frieren backlog climb, while the new releases from other series all drop. Especially Ponkotsu-chan had a nasty one (157 -> 410) and will probably exit the chart tomorrow.

If it has been 1 or 2 year ago people would be crazy about this.
But, imo, Komi hype train has gone and been forgotten. Just looks at Komi sales chart.

Talkback up! Pretty standard issue as far as series goes, but it's hard not to be at least a little hyped with new serializations on the way. That being said it's hard to tell what we'll be getting so my expectations are tempered.

This is all the more baffling. Did Namikiri just get tired of drawing switch then? The editor seems pretty confident he'll be back.

I wonder how often series end because the writer is just bored with them. Seems like something that even if it happened we wouldn't hear too often.

The ranking for 4/19 quite surprised me. Suddenly, all 4/16 release jumped up on the charts, Ponkotsu-chan even did that despite being out of the chart the previous day. Were there delivery problems for some stores?

I read that a lot of the countryside got their shipments late and were only just put on sale on the 19th for the April 16 releases
