REVIEW: This Week's ALPHA

 

Cover
art by Tite Kubo 
Nothing like a bright shiny red Bleach cover to kick off the holiday season! The color combination on this cover is amazing. The black against the red and silver really looks cool. A striking cover that should catch anyone's fancy!

Bleach
by Tite Kubo
Interesting stuff this week! Bankai enthusiasts will get a kick out of this chapter, as Mayuri really gets into the minutiae of broken Bankai and how to fix them. Also, a character we haven't seen in ages makes an amazing appearance! Omoshiroi!

Naruto
by Masashi Kishimoto
Wow! What a chapter! Naruto and Kakashi are finally making some headway in their battle against Obito. But will it be enough to bring him down?! Get ready for action!

Nisekoi: False Love
by Naoshi Komi
It looks like false love has turned into real love. Well, at least a real crush on Chitoge’s side. Now that she realizes she has feelings for Raku and no longer has to pretend to date him, things should get easier. Right?

Toriko
by Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro
I love the strange and wacky characters in Toriko, and this chapter introduces a whole bunch of new ones as chefs competing in the Cooking Festival. And not just a couple, a whole slew of them! This contest is gonna be awesome!

Cross Manage
by Kaito
Sakurai’s riding the girls pretty hard, but they’ve got a lot to learn if they ever hope to compete on any level. As tough as he is, it looks like the work is starting to pay off.
