REVIEW: This Week's ALPHA Issue 03-12-12


Editor and King of the Forums Urian Brown gives his take on this week's issue of Weekly Shonen Jump Alpha!

One Piece X Toriko: Taste of the Devil Fruit
by Eiichiro Oda & Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro
Special Digital Gift for Subscribers Only!
I’ve read a few crossovers like these, but this one takes the cake. Or the meat, as you will! The main characters are perfectly matched and seeing them chow down together was fun. Oh, and it has a super funny ending!

Naruto
by Masashi Kishimoto
Seeing all five kage in action together is an amazing thing. So many high-level jutsu at one time! This week’s chapter ends on an shocking cliffhanger!

Toriko
by Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro
All you need to know about this chapter is this—The World’s Stinkiest Food.

Bleach
by Tite Kubo
The plot in the new arc is starting to thicken! And since it's the final arc, I’m super duper curious to see what's going to happen!

Bakuman
story by Tsugumi Ohba, art by Takeshi Obata
Fukuda spills the beans about Muto Ashirogi and Miho Azuki! Now Miho has to go on the air and deny the relationship. Will she? I love this arc! It really shows some of the darker aspects of the Japanese manga and voice-acting industry.

Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan
by Hiroshi Shiibashi
Rikuo’s school friends get a special treat when they’re invited to his house to meet his yokai friends! He also invites another guest who will definitely surprise you!
