Toriko's back! And he's gracing this week's cover of Weekly Shonen Jump. And what a cover, with food bursting everywhere, covering every nook and cranny! All of us here are very thankful to see this series return after its short hiatus, just like Toriko's thankful for all the world's food!

Toriko
by Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro
The story resumes 18 months after the cataclysmic set of events that changed food- and mankind forever! Toriko and Komatsu are reunited and a bit...hairier than usual. They've been spending their time hoarding food in the Gourmet World, and it looks like its just about time to return to the tattered ruins of the human world. But how are they gonna haul all that food?!

One Piece
by Eiichiro Oda
The finals has begun! Each winning combatant from their respective blocks now face the final challenge. And to the winner comes the spoils of victory—the Flame-Flame fruit! Meanwhile, Luffy and friends are in the midst of another hair-raising romp through enemy territory, and let's just say sneaking around ain't one of Luffy's strong points...

World Trigger
by Daisuke Ashihara
This chapter is bonkers! Bananas! Nuts! The gloves come off as Border Agents scramble to regroup and retaliate against the new capture-type Neighbor. Yuma even decides it's worth the risk to use his Black Trigger. Meanwhile, the Neighbors decide to take advantage of this confusion to launch an unexpected aerial attack on Border HQ!

All You Need Is Kill
story by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, storyboards by Ryosuke Takeuchi, character designs by yoshitoshi Abe, art by Takeshi Obata
Keiji's starting to get used to his unusual predicament, using it to his advantage to power-up on the battlefield. But no matter how much he improves, he just can't seem to survive for long. The problem—limited rounds of ammunition. The solution—pay a little visit to Rita's weapons specialist...

Bleach
by Tite Kubo
President Roosevelt taught me that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. In other words, the only thing holding us back is not the object of fear, but the very emotion of fear that paralyzes us. In this week's chapter of Bleach, fear itself is incarnated as a creepy looking Quincy looking to pick on li'l ol' Rukia! But does fear have anything to fear? Perhaps a person who has no fear! What in tarnation am I saying?!

Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign
story by Takaya Kagami, art by Yamoto Yamamoto, storyboards by Daisuke Furuya
Yuichiro and friends are en route to Shinjuku when they stumble upon the worst possible enemy—a vampire noble armed with a first-class weapon! Perhaps with their combined strength, they can take down one vampire noble. But what'll happen to them when two other elite vampires appear?!

Dragon Ball
by Akira Toriyama
All hope is not lost for Goku's fallen comrades! If Piccolo and Kami-sama are originally aliens from another planet, then there stands a good chance that there are other Dragon Balls existing on that planet. But there's one BIG problem standing in their way—despite having access to Earth's finest and latest technology (Bulma's old man!), the fastest they can hope to get there would be 4,339 years and three months! Anyone got some popcorn? Cuz it's gonna be one long trip...

I literally can't access any of my issues online. Even when I click the "read the newest issue" thing...
