This week’s cover celebrates One Piece passing 700 chapters. IIRC, this issue actually has chapter 703 in it, so they’re late.
Just like High Kyū!!, Nisekoi is getting a novel adaptation. There are rumblings that they’ll announce one for Saiki next issue.
Naruto‘s writer will be running a one-shot in Jump SQ issue 6, as will the Prince of Tennis writer, and the same issue will also have a new series from the writer of Strawberry 100%.
This issue included news about the new crossover game, but I’ll talk about that on the proper blog column for it.
The Shokugeki no Sōma one-shot will be included in volume 1.
I forgot to include it last week, but here’s the cover for Jump Versus:
NOTE: I forgot to note Edison‘s debut rank last week. It came in 12th on its first week. I have since corrected this in the post itself. I apologise for the error.
