Mangas to pass the time
Due to the coronavirus, schools in Japan are closed. To help these young people not to see time pass (and also to promote their magazines), the two big publishing houses, Shueisha and Shogakukan, have made digital versions of manga and magazines available to them for free until 31 March.

(* : Series with colour pages are not included in the ranking)
For this sixteenth issue of 2020, it’s Haikyu !! which is on the cover to celebrate the 8 years of the series. As usual, the pillars of the magazine trust the first places (1. One Piece, 2. Kimetsu no Yaiba, 3. My Hero Academia, 4. The Promised Neverland, 5. Dr. Stone). A minor setback for Jujutsu Kaisen and his 9th place. Zipman !! and Samurai 8 remain in the last places. If the shonen about the space samurai still has the « Masashi Kishimoto » protection (even if it shouldn’t last anymore), as far as the action/robots series is concerned, the omens are not the same. This is a pity for the manga by Yusaka Shibata, which, despite its qualities, does not seem to please the Japanese readership. To see in the coming weeks if the decision to stop these two titles will be taken.
