Kagamigami holds steady, Black Clover debuts in the middle of the pack.
Double Arts will be running in Jump+, joining Reborn! and Taizo Moteo Saga. Don’t expect new chapters for any of them, of course.
The cover has all just protagonists on it, and the sizes for each gives some notable insight on what the editors think of each series, since they’ve been neatly segregated:

- Group 2: My Hero Academia, Assassination Classroom, Food Wars!
- Group 3: Kochikame, Toriko, Gin Tama
- Group 4: Haikyuu!!, Bleach, Hinomaru Zumō, Nisekoi, PSI Kusuo Saiki, World Trigger
