REVIEW: This Week's Issue!

 

Cover
art by Yamoto Yamamoto 
This may be our brightest Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign cover yet! Usually they're quite dark and grim (and green), but I guess that makes sense since mankind's been turned into cattle for vampires to feed on. Anyway, enjoy this beautiful cover!

Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign
story by Takaya Kagami, art by Yamoto Yamamoto, storyboards by Daisuke Furuya
Things are heating up on the battlefield! The vampires have launched an attack on the human-controlled area of Tokyo, but the Japanese Imperial Demon Army's sent out their top troops. And during the assault, Yuichiro finds out that fighting against the vampires isn't as simple as he thought!  

Stealth Symphony
story by Ryohgo Narita, art by Yoichi Amano  
It's the second thrilling chapter of our newest manga! A lot of people think the debut chapter is the most important, but the follow-up one is just as crucial. That's because everyone will give a new manga a chance, but if you don't hook them on the second chapter, they may lose interest. Luckily, this chapter's really good! Jig learns more about the strange city he lives in and its colorful cast of characters. Plus, we learn a little more about the mysterious Troma!  

Naruto
by Masashi Kishimoto
Madara finds his old ally has turned against him! Despite the pain and sorrow he's suffered, Obito decides to do the right thing and face down the greatest threat the ninja world has ever faced! But Madara's more powerful than he's ever been, well technically, more powerful than anybody's ever been, and he's not going down easy!  

One Piece
by Eiichiro Oda
The super-slimy villain Mr. Trebol's trying to the trick the poor Tontattas out of information! And they're insanely easy to trick! Will they wise up for once and stop being taken advantage of? You can probably guess the answer to that question. Then Usopp learns more details about the one-legged toy soldier, Captain Leo, and why he may be the only hope of defeating Doflamingo! 

All You Need is Kill
story by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, storyboards by Ryosuke Takeuchi, character designs by Yoshitoshi Abe, art by Takeshi Obata 
Keiji's died and come back over 180 times. He's now a whirlwind of death, cutting a swath through the alien Mimic forces. But despite his best efforts, he's resigned to his terrible fate. There's only one other person on the battlefield with his level of combat ability—the Full Metal Bitch. Is she somehow linked to his predicament? 

Toriko
by Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro
The Billion Bird has turned into a culinary boon for the Gourmet World! Nearly every part is usable, and it multiplies like crazy. It would seem the late President's Full-Course Meal has saved the world. But when Komatsu shows the Billion Bird his honest appreciation, a miracle happens! 

Bleach
by Tite Kubo
The fight against As Nodt has come to a climax! Rukia finds out her bankai is incredibly powerful, but also dangerous to use. And a new Vandenreich makes an attack, but you'll never guess against who! Seriously, you'll never guess. 

Nisekoi
by Naoshi Komi
It must be backwards day, because someone's asking Raku for love advice! That's like asking a snake where's a good place to shop for pants! Or asking a rock to teach you how to swim! Or asking a tree to teach you gymnastics! I guess you get the idea. Anyway, if you want to know the exact wrong way to put the moves on a girl, read this chapter! 

World Trigger
by Daisuke Ashihara
A new type of Neighbor has appeared on the battlefield, and it's more powerful than anything they've seen so far. Luckily, Kitora and Osamu are on the scene! But is Osumu ready for battle? Like, a real battle?

Thanks for the World Trigger feature; it explained a lot.
TL;DR: This was a wonderful issue in which many series advanced the plot. Sorry about such a long comment, but I felt compelled to write about it, since it was such an awesome issue.
