He now oversees four magazines: Weekly Shonen Jump, V Jump, Jump Square, and Saikyō Jump "which is scheduled to launch in December." Shueisha already published an issue of Saikyō Jump last December.
Sasaki appears in the Bakuman. manga and anime as himself, although Kenyuu Horiuchi voices him in the anime."
