Our foodiest cover ever! If this doesn't make you hungry for the juicy eats and beats Toriko serves up, nothing will! We had quite a bit of fun in the office figuring out what all the food was. The only one that gave us trouble was the dried cuttlefish by Komatsu's head, and the crab meat to the right of Toriko. Can you name everything on there?

Seen a lot of battles in all my SJ days, but I've never quite seen one like this—hair vs. bugs! Sunny's super-powered hair versus Tommyrod's endless army of bugs! This is a great battle for a few reasons: 1. It's totally bananas. 2. It's very strategic! 3. It's got lots of twists and surprises. No doubt, it's the best super hair powers versus super insect powers fight ever drawn. Seriously, I don't think anyone's ever done that. We're breaking new ground here, folks!

Holy backstory, this is getting complicated! I won't ruin any of the surprises, but I'll just say you'll be surprised. Unless you're some kind of Bleach genius and somehow knew or suspected this all along. I am not a Bleach genius. I am not an anything genius. That I know of. Anyway, the very end should have the fans talking!
Not to sound like a broken record every week, not to sound like a broken record every week, not to sound like a broken record every week, but Cross Manage just keeps getting better and better! The story has really found its footing, and the characters are coming to life. It's gone from something I enjoy reading but don't really think about that much, to something I look forward to and love discussing with the other SJ editors.

Another laugh-out-loud chapter of One-Punch Man! No seriously, I did laugh out loud a few times. After disposing of The House of Evolution's genetically-altered attack squad, depressingly overpowered Saitama and his cyborg sidekick take the fight to the House! Murata Sensei's art is simply amazing. This guy is truly at the top of his game. I never get sick of looking at his work. So much energy! So dynamic!

WAAHHH!!! Cool chapter of Dragonball! The fight between Raditz, Goku and Piccolo is coming to a head! There is some great dialogue between Goku and Piccolo in this chapter as well.

Aha, more members of the cast are revealed in the form of Border Agents arriving after Yuma dispatched the marauding neighbor. The new characters are interesting to say the least, especially the girl. Looking forward to learning more about them and Border itself.

The teacher's picking the seating arrangement for the new semester, and let's just say—things get hectic! Will Raku get to sit next to the girl he likes? Does he even really know who he likes? And which of the lovely ladies will end up getting the lucky seat next to him?
