With the end looming for big titles (Gintama), other MIA (Hunter x Hunter, World Trigger), and new series failing to take off, it’s time for another round of shake-ups at Shonen Jump. An early look at next week’s 2017 issue 9 has revealed six titles that will be introduced starting in the following week’s issue 10.
