‘Cyborg Roggy’ and ‘Gakkyu Hotei’ Manga Axed From Shonen Jump


Remember a little article a little someone wrote about Cyborg Roggy not too long ago and how that someone predicted it would get the axe sooner rather than later? Well I hate to say I told you so but I told you so.

Needless to say Cyborg Roggy has been unceremoniously axed from Shonen Jump after failing to capture an audience in the magazine and consistently ranking dead last in the reader rankings. It will end next week and be compiled into two volumes for release in June and July this year.


On the other side of the coin a rather surprising turn of events has befallen Gakkyu Hotei, the Takeshia Obata series about the Elementary School Justice System. A strange premise that unfortunately seems to have been the undoing of the series in spite of its legendary mangaka behind it.

Luckily for Gakkyu Hotei it is getting a more respectable send off with the series being moved to Shonen Jump+ the digital magazine in Japan to conclude its run properly.

The axeman swingeth hard and fast on this day manga fans, some may have earned it and some may have not. But so goes the way of the axeman.
