    Demon's Plan by Yoshimichi Okamoto runs in Weekly Shonen Jump.

    The mangaka was behind Brain Breaker from 2014's Golden Future Cup.

    Chapter One is OUT!!! (http://mangastream.com/r/demons_plan/001/3825/1)

    After reading this, all I can think is--

    First and foremost, why did Boro and Carlos immediately come to blows? Like, I consider myself to have adequate reading comprehension, but I saw no reason for Boro (why couldn't he have been called Boros?) and Carlos to fight.

    Second, so Boros is gonna save Carlos from becoming a demon...by becoming a demon himself? Isn't that a bit contradictory?

    Third, why did Patron take Carlos away? This goes hand-in-hand with the first two questions. Since I don't see a reason for Boros and Carlos to fight, and I think it's odd for Boros to also become a demon, I don't see a reason for Patron to take Carlos away. I mean, Boros wasn't really opposed to what Carlos wanted to do, just that he wanted both of them to be happy in the end. Them BOTH being chosen ones kinda guarantees that. I mean, being chosen ones means they can do whatever they want, and they want to stay by each other's side. Patron kinda went against his own mandate by preventing that.

    So one dude who they didn't know, got up from a wheelchair, no one else was "chosen", and they didn't think it was a scam? During 10 years they should've grown a little suspicious of this.

    Picked up the Promised Neverland and will read this one too. Finally might have something to replace Naruto and Bleach.

    Check out both.

    Kimetsu isn't even a year old yet so it'd be pretty easy for you to catch up. Has a really unqiue lonely and creepy vibe. Reminiscent of Togashi (Yu Yu Hakusho/Hunter x Hunter)

    It is still hard to believe IMO, 10 years is a really long time. And during the time they didn't have to figure it out alone, could just hear other townspeople doubts. Would poor people from this place really believe some rich guy just like that, especially since there was only one chosen person?
    Plus im assuming 1 million is a lot in this world, after working so much, it would be tempting to use that money, instead of just giving away.

    Eh, maybe im just thinking too much, it's just first chapter

    Chapter Two is out. (http://mangastream.com/r/demons_plan/002/3833/1)

    Again, I'm left scratching my head. I see no immediate downside to being an immortal demon that'd have Boros needing to kill Carlos. So, I don't see a reason for Boros' emotional response upon finding out the information. Also, didn't Boros basically pay for his own ticket...?

    You obviously aren't wrong. It was pretty clearly spelled out the direction the series is taking. I don't know why you'd even have to question if this was going the tournament route.

    I don't think this will last, but I'm not totally against this idea though. Tournament manga like Gash Bell and Law of Ueki are close to my heart.

    New character has a more interesting backstory than Boros. The twist of his past (I can't remember the name and can't be bothered to check) happening decades ago was kinda cool. Sadly, the overall...tone, I guess I wanna say, feels a little...desperate. The pace is picking up...but not in a smooth way. It feels like the author knows that he's gonna be axed.

    A pity, I'm kinda interested because of the new character.

    The amount of people who give a shit about this thread is identical to the amount of readers it generated

    No wonder it got the axe
