The mangaka mentions that the cover of the weekly shonen manga was already drawn by Yusuke. Furthermore, the magazine’s covers state that the new chapter is included owing to earlier printing schedules.
The upcoming chapter of Blue Lock, on the other hand, will not be included in the magazine. He was referring to Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump’s 48th edition. This weekend was its deadline. It would not, however, include the most recent chapter of the Blue Lock Manga.
