A lot of characters on the cover! And they're all running somewhere. I like to imagine they're all running to their manga, to get there before you start reading it!

by Tite Kubo
Rukia and Renji are back! And just in time, as Superstar Mask de Masculine has been knocking around Soul Reapers like underpaid jobbers. But with Renji's and Rukia's newfound powers, will they pin this guy to the mat and send him back to the locker room for good? I hope so, because I am running out of wrestling metaphors. 

One Piece
by Eiichiro Oda
The fight for Dressrosa has officially begun! The Tontattas begin the assault, but run into a problem right away—Franky wont fit in their secret attack tunnel! Looks like the attack force will have to split up. Franky's tasked with creating a distraction, while the rest soldier on (literally) under Ussop. It is officially "on," as they say!

by Masashi Kishimoto

Madara's come back to life and is ready to put the beatdown on everyone—starting with the Biju! He's already got one Rinnegan, and the fusion of black Zetsu and Obito have the other. Things are not looking good for the what's left of the Allied Ninja Forces! I have to say, Kishimoto Sensei has done an excellent job of making Madara seem menancing. Of course we already know he's tough, but he really does seem like he can take everyone on and have a decent chance of winning. 

by Naoshi Komi
Raku's helping Marika out by pet sitting her beloved parrot. But when she leaves and the parrot starts talking, it says some...slightly embarassing things. Well, not slightly, downright shocking! What's with this dirty bird, and what has Marika been teaching it?

World Trigger
by Daisuke Ashihara

The Neighbors assault has begun and Border has dispatched their agents to take them down! But there's something strange about their attack pattern. Is it a ploy, or just a sign of their limited intelligence? One thing's for sure, underestimating an enemy in battle can have dire consequences! 

by Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro

One thousand chefs have been kidnapped by Midora and his cohorts. Many would rather die than cook for such an evil man. But everything changes when Midora makes an incredible offer—whomever can cook something that makes him say "Yum," gets to go home! 

Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal
Original Concept by Kazuki Takahashi
Story by Shin Yoshida, Art by Naohito Miyoshi
Production Support: STUDIO DICE
The double duel of the century is going down in this chapter! And all the major players of the Numbers War are on the main stage! Yuma and Kaito will be going at it, with Kaito's brother being held as hostage! And while that's happening, the mastermind behind it all, Yagumo, takes on the previously banned Ryoga! Meanwhile, a strange woman appears and tells the Number's Club that there's more to this duel than meets the eye...a lot more!  

Dragon Ball
by Akira Toriyama

Vegeta lets out one last explosive attack to finally finishes everyone off! But to his surprise, and theirs, they are still alive. He's too weak to finish them. And sensing Vegeta's weakness, the "brave" Yajirobe comes in the for the kill! Wil this be the end of the mighty Vegeta? Or the not-quite-as-mighty Yajirobe?

Page 104 of Toriko seems to be missing, I've downloaded the issue thrice now and it still doesn't show up.

What device are you using? I've checked on the web and I think I've checked on all devices, with no problems coming up for me.
