Straighten Up!, thankfully, recovered immediately. Sales for volume 2 came in, and they’re actually worse than volume 1 (to be fair, slow month – everything except Black Clover declined). So it’s another Hinomaru Zumō – great ranks, but slow actual sales. Hopefully both will improve if they get anime.

Assassination Classroom‘s chapter last week claimed the series would be over in “three hours”, so I would not be surprised to see it conclude this round.

I’m actually surprised to see Samon stabilize in the middle like this, though. I wonder how long they’ll last. Series that debut low or in the middle tend to be on borrowed time until they crash and burn, with the ones lasting being the ones who open big. I feel like the only cancellation will be Buddy Strike, along with the aforementioned natural conclusion of Assassination Classroom, though.
