Shonen Jump Ends Devilyman Manga, Starts New Series on September 21
This year's 42nd issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is ending Kentarō Fukuda's Devilyman manga on Monday. Fukuda launched the manga in this year's 26th issue on May 25. The final chapter thanked fans for reading and asked fans to look forward to Fukuda's next work. The manga's second volume will ship on November 4.
Additionally, the issue is revealing that it will launch Shun Numa's Samon-kun wa Summoner (Samon is a Summoner) manga in the 43rd issue, which will ship on September 21. The new "demon-like unusual comedy" manga will center on high school student and summoner named Samon. Shueisha previously published Numa's three-chapter Moromono no Jijō manga in Weekly Shonen Jump last year.
Viz Media published the first three chapters of Devilyman in English simultaneously with its Japanese release as part of the company's Jump Start initiative.
Ken Ogino's Lady Justice and Takuma Yokota's Straighten Up! Welcome to Shika High's Competitive Dance Club (Sesuji wo Pin! to ~Shikakō Kyōgi Dance-bu e Yōkoso~) manga also launched in May alongside Devilyman. Ogino ended Lady Justice in Shonen Jump's 41st issue on Monday.
Shonen Jump's 42nd issue will also launch the first chapter of Haruto Ikezawa's (Kurogane) Mononofu manga on Monday.
Viz Media had announced on Monday that it would publish Mononofu in English as part of its Jump Start program. The announcement had noted that "JUMP STARTs are returning next week! Kicking things off is Mononofu by Haruto Ikeawa."

Taka: I see. A global release will benefit it. Gundam did pretty good. The only few franchises that are only popular in Japan but not popular in the west - Yokai Watch comes to mind.

Master Menos: F for Respects. DMX did all his work while suffering from a drug addiction, and I almost never knew until a point. I hope his next life treats him far better.
