Ayakashi Triangle Loses Major Simulpub After Publication Change
A Major Shonen Jump Series Loses Its Overseas Simulub Distributor Amid Changes in Schedules and Publications for the Future of Manga! Kentaro Yabuki is one of the most notable and slightly infamous artists and creators fans have seen over the years thanks to previous works such as Black Cat, To-Love Ru and its much spicier sequel, To Love Ru Darkness. . The creator’s latest manga series, Ayakashi Triangle, has been streaming through the pages of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine since 2020, but this series will unexpectedly come to an end in the near future.
The new chapter of Ayakashi Triangle released with the announcement that Kentaro Yabuki’s original manga series will no longer be published in the pages of Shonen Jump magazine. Instead of jumping to the Jump+ app in Japan, the series will now be scheduled to go on hiatus after three chapters and will include a new color page with each release. While that’s already notable on its own, it looks like the change will negatively impact its simulpub release with Viz Media in English.

As spotted by @WSJ_manga on Twitter and many others, it looks like starting with the next chapter of the series, Ayakashi Triangle will only be available with Shueisha’s international Manga Plus reading service in the future. This has yet to be explicitly confirmed by Viz Media as of this writing, but it would certainly make sense as Viz Media has openly skipped a few chapters in recent weeks. In addition to the fact that it’s only been online (and not available on the Shonen Jump app), and it looks like a move away from simultaneous Viz Media releases is in the cards.
The future of Ayakashi Triangle maybe only on Manga Plus, but at least overseas fans still have a way to enjoy each new chapter. Not only that, but it’s been confirmed that the series will also be getting its own official anime adaptation. However, information about its production studio, staff, or release date has yet to be revealed about the new anime as of this writing.
