Jump Square, the shounen manga that replaced Monthly Shounen Jump, made its debut in Japan on November 2nd. The magazine has almost completely sold out of its original 500,000 released copies. The publishing company, Shueisha, has gone ahead with printing 100,000 additional copies. The first issue of Jump Square had sold 90% of its Tokyo metropolitan area copies within the first three days, and 70% nationwide.

The next issue will be shipped for print on November 16th, with an increase in quantity on the first print run. For more information: ANN.

I added it to the DB the other day :D

It has some pretty awesome manga associated with it.

as a side note, you'd be surprised how much Shueisha publishes. They run most of the magazines!

Wow... that's pretty impressive. Granted, it probably had a lot of hype for being the 'follow-up' to Shounen Jump, but still... nice numbers. :3

This is great news for the stuff serialized in Jump Square. I'm particularly happy because Claymore is running in it, and it would suck for it to do badly...
