Amazing Bleach cover this week! Colors only come to life like this when you have a backlit screen! This is so well drawn, it almost looks like the anime. We've had lot of great covers this year, but this one truly stands out. Magnifique!

The meaning of the Thousand Year Blood Bath War story arc is revealed! Captain General Yamato goes on the offensive against the invading Vandenreich attack force, and confronts their leader Yhwach—an old foe he hasn’t seen in a thousand years.
by Eiichiro Oda
We’ve got some serious plot movement in this chapter! The gang is raiding Caesar Clown’s compound and headed for a confrontation. But Caesars’s not going down without a fight, and is more than willing to sacrifice his troops to defend himself!
by Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro
No doubt about it, this is the most surreal chapter of Toriko yet! It’s downright bizarre at times—even for Toriko! The massive main body of the Four-Beasts has morphed and released some crazy deadly attacks!
by Masashi Kishimoto|
If you haven’t figured out who Tobi is yet, this chapter will reveal all! And in a really cool way! There are no word balloons in the entire chapter until the very last panel. It’s clear that Kishimoto Sensei still has some tricks up his sleeve!

More clues about Yamato’s kamiwaza power are revealed! In fact, it looks like we're headed for some serious exposition! This chapter also has one of the most mind-boggling spreads I’ve seen in a long time! The kind of spread you just stare at for ten minutes getting lost in all the amazing details! I wonder how long it took to draw. Must have been days!

Barrage is wrapping up! I wish the space whale got more action, but what can you do. Some manga last a long time, and some don't. That is just the nature of the game. At least Astro gets to confront Black and find out about his past. That’s some kind of closure.
