VIZ Media’s digital Weekly Shonen Jump magazine added Tadatoshi Fujimaki’s Robot × Laserbeam and Taishi Tsutsui’s We Never Learn manga as regular series beginning with this year’s 20th issue on April 17, 2017.
The two manga were among six new series VIZ Media previewed in February 2017 and March 2017 as part of its “Jump Start” initiative. In the initiative, VIZ Media’s digital Weekly Shonen Jump anthology publishes the first three chapters of a new manga simultaneously with the Japanese release. Based on reader feedback, the digital anthology sometimes adds the manga to its permanent lineup.
VIZ Media’s Weekly Shonen Jump also added Riichirou Inagaki and Boichi’s Dr. Stone manga from among the new titles. The other manga were Yūji Kimura’s U19, Hitsuji Kondaira’s Demon Prince Poro’s Diaries, and Ryūhei Tamura’s Hungry Marie.
