New Series Best Blue by Masahiro Hirakata

To become a legend like he saw one fateful day.
Aono swims alone on a remote island, with no teammates, no coach and no rival.
But he will have a destined meeting that will change his life forever.

Swim through the center of youth!  
A blue summer comes to Jump!  

Best Blue began in Weekly Shonen Jump issue 33 by Masahiro Hirakata. Hirakata previously published his Shinmai Fukei Kiruko-san (Rookie Policewoman Kiruko-san) manga series in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2012 but it was cancelled the following year.
Best Blue may appeal to many sports readers. From the first chapter we see a protagonist who has a clear goal but no defined route to attain it. The first chapter also reveals a potential rival and teammate for Aono. Overall, the story moves at a good pace but depending on the readers it seems that Hirakata will have to pull all the stocks to keep his new series running.

The first chapter can be read here
