REVIEW: This Week's Issue!

When I saw this cover, I was so excited, I leapt out of my chair and started doing jumping jacks. Well, I actually just yelled out, "Wow! What a cover!" And then I went and gave the designer 100 dollars! Well actually, just a pat on back and a firm handshake. In any case, this is a brilliant cover. Many of you know of my intense love of Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal, and we don't get many covers for that manga. Especially one with Kaito, instead of Yuma! 

by Masashi Kishimoto
Man, Naruto has been so good for so long, it's amazing. Kishimoto Sensei just keeps knocking them out of the park each week. And this chapter ups the ante a bit, with the return of some key characters. Also, there's some hilarious banter between Orochimaru, Karin and Suigetsu.

Those reviewers have read illegal scanlations that were released before the magazine comes out in Japan. Long story short, scan groups acquire raws ahead of the official release, which is generally Mondays. They get raws like, the Tuesday before. So as an example, if we get Naruto chapter 600 on Monday, they would (through their means) have gotten it already and released it and released Naruto chapter 601 on Tuesday. Barring some technicalities, what we read is technically simultaneous with Japan. "Technically" because sometimes there are holidays and they get Jump on Sunday or something, but for the most part anyway.
