The reprint of the May issue of Bessatsu Shonen Magazine will go on sale in Japan on April 30
In a very uncommon occurrence, the monthly magazine Bessatsu Shonen Magazine will be getting a reprint this month due to high demand thanks to holding the final chapter of Hajime Isayama's Attack on Titan manga series. The magazine went on sale inside Japan on April 9 and quickly sold out across the country, prompting the reprint. To celebrate the reprint, the magazine will be coming with a bonus special clear file.
The Japan Magazine Publishers Association reports that during the October to December 2020 period, Bessatsu Shonen Magazine had an average of 48,667 copies serialized each month. It is not know how many more copies will be printed, but they will be sent out across Japan.

Kodansha Comic releases the series in English, with each chapter released simultaneously on Crunchyroll as they came out in Japan.
