12. Takujo no AGEHA: The Table Tennis of AGEHA
13. Gakkyu Hotei: School Judgment
Isobe Isobee Monogatari

Yup, School Judgment is definitely on the way out. Guess Pine’s father will be the final boss of the series.

On the other hand, Kagamigami gets a respectable 5th-place opener. Black Clover and Ultra Battle Satellite have been placed pretty highly by the editors for the unranked weeks, but there’s no telling if they’ll do well enough to stick. I’m sure you can recall a few series the editors placed highly that proceeded to immediately bomb. Cyborg Roggy has had very erratic editor placement. To be perfectly straight, though, I only expect 1, maybe 2 to live. They’re all battle manga and are likely to cannibalize each other.
