    Not surprised this guy got his own series in WSJ, his oneshot Haeniwa no Zig Zag last year was received very well by 2chan

    Knowing the name is nice and all but a lot of these trial run series don't even get scanlated :(

    Very true, but if it does end up getting popular and/or scanlated right away then there will already be a thread for it.

    First chapter is out on Viz website

    this is one best new additions to the magazine, way better than Buddy Strike, Mononfu, Samon & Best Blue

    It's intriguing & it makes me want to read more

    Mononofu is pretty great though.
    I'll probably give this one a shot if it doesn't end up getting cancelled. This is a rookie mangaka and I've heard mixed things about it though.

    the second chapter was a battle heavy chapter, so there isn't much to discuss, the art quality kinda declined during those battle scenes

    the beginning of the chapter when the mc & his sister were goofing around was pretty cute & well executed tho

    this is pretty good stuff

    since Tabata & Gotōge are very close friends maybe he should teach him how to write an interesting battle shonen

    It's amateur, but the mangaka has a lot of potential.

    Speaking of which, I'm surprised you didn't make a thread about it yet.

    Just read the 12 released chapters the other day, it's pretty fun.

    Series isn't doing too well in the rankings.
    Not the very bottom, but bottom 5. Don't expect this to last.

    Genre: Action Adventure Drama Fantasy Shounen Supernatural Tragedy

    Tragedy

    Tanjiro is the eldest son in a family that has lost its father. Tanjiro visits another town one day to sell charcoal, but ends up staying the night at someone else's house instead of going home because of a rumor about a demon that stalks a nearby mountain at night. When he goes home the next day, tragedy is waiting for him.

    Currently on ch 11, but the scans haven't caught up to the raws so releases are quite fast.

    chapter 11

    Tragedy

    I've a feeling that Kibutsuji Muzan is going to be the final boss of this manga & the reason they introduce him this early because they are not sure if this series will survive

    That's what I was feeling as well.
    It's sad because this series really was beginning to grow on me, but it's to be expected with Jump.
    I really think that this dude has a lot of potential though, so I'll continue enjoying Yaiba while it lasts, and then just hope Gotoge's next work will be a success.
