    By @menma:

    Some pretty interesting looking new series coming in from the looks of it, hopefully some will be able to fill the gaps left by the likes of Toriko and Bleach....
    The ones I think I'd be most likely to read are We Can't Study and Dr. Stone, they look like they'd be the funniest. That being said, I might check out Robot x Laserbeam just to see what the KnB mangaka is up to now.

    Which ones do you think look the best?

    No matter how much i try think about it, i just can't see myself read a manga about Golf. Also sorry for the double post!
    Must say that i don't really find any of them appealing to me at first glance, one thing that can't help but notice, we seen the newest mangas that have been released all were fantasy ones, and all of them is really bad in rankings and most likely also in the sales.

    These 6 though seems to be rather slice of life types with a faint touch of fantasy, Maybe the preferences in Japan have changed since Naruto, One piece, Bleach days where all of them were fantasy based mangas almost!

    Me too xD I'll still check it out to see if it surpasses my expectations.

    None of the manga here caught my attention but I'll still give them a shot. Some of my favorite series didn't get a strong start either so I'll focus more on the execution of the story rather than the beginning.
