World Trigger volume sales have hit 200,000 for the first time.

It wasn’t a fluke, then. School Judgment is probably on the way out unless one of the new series just flopped that badly.

One-Punch Man (Cover)
Nisekoi: False Love
My Hero Academia (Center Colour)
World Trigger
Ultra Battle Satellite (Jump Start)

Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma
Boys Over Flowers Season 2 (Jump Start)
Claymore (Jump Back)

My opinion on this Jump Start round: Kagamigami > Boys Over Flowers Season 2 > Black Clover = Ultra Battle Satellite > Cyborg Roggy. At this point, all of them have had three chapters, but remember: Boys Over Flowers Season 2 gets four chapters.

This week’s Nihongo Lesson is on directions: “migi”, “hidari” and “massugu”. Kanji were included this time due to how similar the ones for migi and hidari are.
