Shonen Jump Stealth releases seven chapters in an exciting new series
have in the past few months Shonen jump has introduced a slew of new manga titles, each with some level of pre-debut promotion to pique fan interest except for its latest title Gokurakugaithat was not the case.
On March 2, 2023, Shonen jump The readers were surprised Gokurakugai among the other weekly series. Her surprise wasn’t to have another new title, but this Shonen jump released the title without the usual fanfare he gives to a new member of his manga magazine. The only promotion was a tweet from the official Shonen jump Twitter account posted on the same day the chapter was deleted.
Gokurakugai proves it can play in the big leagues
Written and Illustrated by Yuta Sano, Gokurakugai tells the story of Tao and Alma, who run a private investigator-like “problem solver” agency that “fixes” any problem at the right price. However, they are not the usual “heroes for hire”. Tao has a side business of killing a special type of monster known as “Magi”, while Alma (half-human, half-monster) has his own monster problem.
What was most surprising about the series was that the debut spanned seven chapters, spanning anywhere from seven weeks to seven months of content, depending on whether it’s a traditional weekly or true monthly release. given Shonen jump‘s reputation for scrapping new titles for such a ‘low-key’ debut suggests the leadership is either extremely confident Gokurakugai is a winner or a short-term contentual placeholder for another title.
Shonen Jump has great faith in Gokurakugai

Going from a one-shot to a popular monthly title was probably all the evidence the Shueisha leadership needed to believe that Gokurakugai had the “chops” and fan base to make it into the big leagues.
