Another New Shueisha Magazine – Shonen Jump Next

Hot on the heels of news regarding Jump SQ.19 comes word that Shueisha is launching yet another magazine. Entitled Shonen Jump Next, this even-newer magazine will be a quarterly release in the style of another of their existing magazines, Akamaru Jump. Like Akamaru, Shonen Jump Next will primarily serve as a launching pad for young artists hoping to establish themselves before being serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump or another Shueisha property.

Shonen Jump Next launches April 30 with several oneshots, some from notable mangaka:

Matsui Yuusei (Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro)
Kawashita Mizuki (Ichigo 100%, Hatsukoi Limited, Ane Doki)
Amano Youichi (Akaboshi – Ibun Suikoden)
Wajima Satoshi (Wasshoi! Waji Mania)

The debut issue will also feature a poster of the Bakuman anime, a special Nurarihyon no Mago chapter (featuring color page), eight short histories about current Weekly Shonen Jump series, and nine oneshots from young authors.

Issue 1 will also feature an as yet untitled series by Miki Miyashita (Yoku Wakaru Gendai Mahou), a spin-off of Mayoi Neko Overrun! by Kentaro Yabuki (Black Cat, To LOVE-Ru), one-shots by Kawashita Mizuki (Ichigo 100%, Hatsukoi Limited, Ane Doki) and Yamato Yamamoto (artist of Kure-nai), and assorted other works by lesser known authors.
