Twenty days to draw 46-47 pages of art is still a phenomenal output.

That Tite Kubo did Bleach weekly and for such a long time, it is amazing that he was able to do it this long!
It's not entirely on-topic here, but from what I know, Kubo is one of the artists who very rarely went on breaks and when he did, it was when it was absolutely unavoidable (for example, when he was too sick to produce the chapter on schedule). I also don't remember seeing unfinished art in Bleach during its long serialization (and I remember seeing it in series like Gintama and Boku no Hero Academia).

Also, the double-issue breaks that authors get when the magazine isn't released on holidays doesn't mean that the author gets a free week. It actually means more workload for the author because they have to produce 2 chapters before the deadline.

Twenty days to draw 46-47 pages of art is still a phenomenal output.
It certainly is!

It isn't confirmed that Samurai 8 going to serialize on May 13th; it is just people's guess.
So, that's not what the announcement on the picture said? Thanks for the clarification, I was just posting what the people on MH said. Now that I've read further posts there, somebody said it could start anywhere between 13th and 27th May. (Although, since Spring springs to June, it could start on one of the first 3 Mondays in June, right?)

So, we're getting a preview (saw that it's numbered as 0.1 somewhere) in the upcoming WSJ issue and the proper serialization starts on 13th May. That's nice. I'll give this series a try.
