REVIEW: This Week's Issue!


art by Eiichiro Oda
I know I've guilty of saying I love every cover, but I really love this cover! I like it when characters from a manga look all dressed up. There's just something magical about seeing the characters you're so familiar wearing fancy clothes. Now if you're excuse me, I'm going to dress up all my action figures in fancy suits. Where does one by tiny suits for action figures? Hrm. 

One Piece
by Eiichiro Oda
Another glorious color spread by Oda Sensei! The Mermaid Cafe looks like the hottest spot under the sea! I could stare at this spread all day. So bright! So colorful! So happy! Meanwhile, in the manga, Sanji takes on Doflamingo! Although Sanji's no joke in kitchen or on the battlefield, can he really match Doflamingo? Especially considering, he doesn't even know exactly what his feathery foe's powers really are!  

Seraph of End: Legend of Vampire
story by Takaya Kagami, art by Yamato Yamamoto, storyboards by Daisuke Furuya
Hyakuya's been kicked out of the Japanese Imperial Demon Army and has to go to high school! But not just go there, he has to overcome his lonely wolf attitude and make a friend, or they won't let him back in! Can he overcome the psychological scars of his youth, and learn how to connect with people again? This story took an interesting turn! I knew we'd be seeing the main character in the future, but I didn't think the story would end up with him in high school. Despite the darkness of this manga, there's also hope. I love the mix of emotions I get from each chapter. I happy. I'm sad. I'm really sad. Now, I'm happy again. Now sad. Haha, quite a ride so far! 

by Masashi Kishimoto

The battlefield shifts again, as the Allied Forces regroup and heal by way of Tsunade and Sakura's incredible powers. Meanwhile, Obito presses Naruto and tries to convince him that fighting is pointless and he should just give up. Will Naruto give up? I bet you can guess that answer to that question! 

World Trigger
by Daisuke Ashihara

Testing is over, and now training begins! Today's lesson, Sniping! Learn some basic techniques, and what kinds of guns are right for which circumstances. This manga is sort of turning into a video game, which is fine by me. I'm a gamer, so all this talk about different kinds of guns and sniping makes me want to play my PS3! 

by Tite Kubo
The Soul Reapers are falling one-by-one, and their only hope lies in an unlikely team up—Urahara and Mayami! Can they put aside their differences for the to save the Soul Society? A lot happens in this chapter. I had to re-read it a couple of times to take it all in. Read it close, or you may miss some very important details. 

One-Punch Man
story by ONE, art by Yusuke Murata

In the midst of a martial arts training session, an emergency meeting of Class S heroes is called! What could be so important, and will they accept Saitama, even though he's only Class B? Prepare to meet the strongest (and funniest!) heroes of the Hero Association!


by Naoshi Komi
More birthday madness! Raku really wants to buy something special for Onedara's birthday, and bribes her sister Haru with sweets to help him. And as the shopping (and eating) trip progresses, they find out they have more in common than they thought.

by Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro

Another heavy chapter of Toriko. The flashback continues and explains what happened to Froese, and what twisted Midora. Might want to have whatever food cheers you up handy after reading this. Pretty sad stuff. And now, I'm going to eat this Choco Taco. 

Dragon Ball
by Akira Toriyama

The battle between Goku and Vegeta escalates! Vegeta's giving Goku a taste of an elite Saiyan's powers! Most would tremble at the sight, but it's actually getting Goku excited!

This issue was very fun to read. I like Luffy in his suit. I like how everyone in the colorspread is having fun in Fishman island. To be honest, when I first saw Luffy in his suit on the cover, I thought that the perfect theme for this would be Sharp Dress Man by ZZ Top XD
