Black Clover‘s first volume mostly sold out, moving 38K, only marginally lower than Illegal Rare‘s first despite the latter having an extra day, and also only marginally lower than Soul Catcher(s) volume 8, which was also released at the same time. That’s nice for an unknown name. Speaking of which, Kagamigami did not chart, meaning even old fans did not buy in. There’s almost nothing that’ll save this one – it’s almost definitely dead. In the same week, World Trigger 11 and My Hero Academia 4 moved 167K and 163K, respectively.
Straighten Up! is being advertised in stores for some reason.

No notification of a series being permanently added from Jump Start. Weird. On another note, this is the longest issue thus far for the English magazine since going simultaneous, with 393 pages.
This issue contains fanart for My Hero Academia from an expo where everyone was told to come up with a character with a quirk. The three shown are: a quirk that gives you lighting and sound effects to accompany a dramatic pose, literally Yuya from Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V with the ability to summon hippos like he does in his show, and something vague about yo-yos.
