The second and third combined 2018 issue of Weekly Young Magazine released on Monday has announced new works that will begin serialization in its seventh 2018 issue.

Masa Ichikawa (A-bout!) will begin Boku wa Doko kara in the seventh issue releasing January 15, 2018. Ohana-chan, who is a winner of magazine's new mangaka Grand Challenge, will move his serialization Hen na Chishiki ni Kuwashii Kanojo, Souko Takayukashiki starting the eighth issue, releasing January 22, 2018. Kengo Hanazawa (I Am a Hero) will begin a new serialization next Spring. More detail will be announced later.

Weekly Young Magazine, targeted toward young male readers (seinen), was established in June 1980. Akira, the xxxHOLiC series, Chobits, 3x3 Eyes, Coppelion, Minami-ke, the Kaiji series, recently announced Back Street Girls, and recently announced to end Prison School are some of the works that serialized in the magazine and received anime adaptations.

Time for the magazine to lose a couple hundred thousand sales because the lineup is weak as hell without prison school.

I'm still surprised that they axed Prison School in the first place, because despite the shitty cavalry arc, Prison School reached rank 50 on yearly sales this year. That's still better than most of what this magazine has sold this year.

The hope for a sequel and resolving some sub plots left in this new arc is almost gone. The only other hope is that another magazine is willing to pick up Prison School, but it doesn't seem to be happening.

Haven't read it but did the story have anywhere else to go? I'm pretty against manga staying in print as long as it's doing well and I mean, tying up loose ends should be mandatory thought but I guess it depends on the mangaka in a way.

The manga's pacing is quite slow from chapter 200+, so for it to immediately trying to tie up loose ends is weird and makes a lot of us think that it got axed. Like recently, we spent over 50+ chapters (a year and more in real life time) of useless cavalry arc filler stuffs that adds 0 to the story.

Then the new arc (from chapter 241+) introduces new subplots with slow pacing for the next 30 chapters and most of them are ignored. These new subplots would've been a nice addition to the story, because it felt like there's something interesting about it like a certain character's past or another certain character's arc that the author has been building pre-chapter 200, but didn't really get paid off.

I'm not even sure if the author can even tie up his new subplots in the last chapters at all. Heck, I don't think that the author can pull off the main characters' goals since the beginning of this manga. Which is

When Young Magazine will realize oh shit we are losing sales, they will contact Prison School author to make sequel of it.

If they really axed Prison School (and the comments in this thread sound logical to get to that conclusion), they must be some special kind of stupid. Prison School is still selling so many volumes.

Gotta love the manga industry. Follow and enjoy a series for years only to have the suits axe it then announce, "X series which has been running for X years will end in the very next chapter published. Look forward to the finale!".

Seriously sick of getting my commitment screwed over. Thank god I never did Bleach or Yankee-kun.

if you guys wondering why, simply because magazine sales is much more profitable than a series tankubon volume sales, hence why overall reader opinion wighted much more than a fanbase...

Also Young Magazine don't use poll sistem, their opinion about the series based on net discussions. Still don't think it was axed. After all they did say that plot going to conclusion four month ago.

It was certainly axed. Story is no where near complete closure.
