A ROBOT X LASERBEAM cover! Sweet! I must say I'm liking this manga more and more each week. I found it amusing in the beginning, but not exactly engrossing. But as the weeks have rolled on and more chapters have come in it's gotten more and more interesting. And now, I'm totally on board and curious as to what's going to happen next! This just proves my theory, a manga about anything can be good as long as it's done well. And this is done well! 

Robot x Laserbeam
by Tadatoshi Fujimaki 

Robo-kun's big mouth gets him in trouble when he tries to join the golf club! And by "big mouth" I mean total cluelessness about the social protocols involved when speaking to higher members of the club. Will he blow his chance to join and challenge Yozan again? It's a whole new world for our golfing hero! 

Robo X Laser

Black Clover
by Yûki Tabata

The fun trip to the hot springs that Mereoleona "invited" everyone to turns out to be anything but when they find out they gotta climb a massive volcano! And it's not just hot, it has other debilitating effects on magic users. I guess the old adage is true--if you can't stand the heat, stay out of the volcano! 

Black Clover

Food Wars!: Shokugeki no Soma
story by Yuto Tsukuda, art by Shun Saeki, contributor Yuki Morisaki

We Never Learn
by Taishi Tsutsui

Two chapters of We Never Learn coming your way! In the first chapter, Uruka ends up in a frilly dress and on a date with Yuiga. How did this happen?! And in the second chapter, Fumio gets a major shock when she steps on the scale and it says, "Ouch!" Can she learn how to burn...calories? 

We Never Learn

Dr. Stone
story by Riichiro Inagaki, art by Boichi

Get ready for an adorable flashback of when Senku, Taiju, and Yuzuriha were all kids! We've seen them as teenagers in the beginning of the manga, but now we get a look at them as li'l cuties when they were younger. It's not only adorable but explains why Taiju and Senku made such a good team as soon as they came out of their stone form. Unfortunately, we don't get a Tsukasa flashback. I would kinda like to know what the heck happened to that guy as a kid to make him into the psycho he became. Musta been something bad!
