Wow, what a beautiful cover! Lose yourself in this gorgeous art and warm fall colors. Orange, red, brown and black--all colors that suggest a changing from summer to the next season. And feel the raw power of this art! The intensity matches the dramatic colors of a mighty tree exploding with color in its full fall splendor. The chapter's pretty cool too!

The Royals have come to save the day! And just in the nick of time. Nozel and Noelle have teamed up to make a magical brother and sister team the elves will have to reckon with. But the fight is just getting started! Can the Royals live up to their lofty reputation?

The Promised Neverland
story by Kaiu Shirai, art by Posuka Demizu

Emma and company have found themselves in a dire situation. Even worse than they're normally up against. This time it's against human foes, but they seem to know their every move. And they're just as vicious as demons, if not more. It's tough to come up with a plan when you're fighting someone who knows your every move. Is this the end?

One Piece

My Hero Academia
by Kohei Horikoshi

Congratulations to Horikoshi Sensei for 200 chapters of My Hero Academia! That is a big number and this manga continues to grow in popularity and get new fans daily. And with good reason—it's quite entertaining! And in this chapter, get ready to see some of the strangest (and funniest) Quirks we've seen yet. Enjoy! 

Dr. Stone
story by Riichiro Inagaki, art by Boichi

The battle for the future (or re-future) of mankind is in full swing! Senku's tank and science-based tomfoolery have got Tsukasa's troops on the run so far. But battles are fickle and prone to change at a moment's notice. This fight is far from over! 

Dr Stone

We Never Learn
by Taishi Tsutsui 

Sekijo's in a pickle! She's invited her crush Ogata to an open campus outing but Ogata invited Yuiga! Three's a crowd! However, Sekijo and Yuiga are so polite they keep making excuses not to go so the other can be with Ogata. BUT they keep making the exact same excuses. You can see the comedic potential here!

I'm From Japan
by Seiji Hayashi

Japan's not your average boy. For one, his name is Japan. Also, he's obsessed with every prefecture and hometown in Japan and will fight anybody over it. And he's spent the first two chapters doing exactly that! But this chapter, it's all about motorcycle racing—for the pride of Shizuoka Prefecture, the prefecture that manufactures more motorcycles than anywhere else in Japan! Whoops! Spoiler! 


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

Dean Erina wakes up to find herself face-to-face with someone she previously thought was a friend! She's been kidnapped, tied to a chair and is learning about a very dangerous culinary organization. Soma and his classmates can definitely cook, but mounting a rescue is quite different! Can't cook your way out of a hostage situation...or can you?

Teenage Renaissance! David
by Yushin Kuroki  

There's been a lot of peeing in this manga so far. If you're a fan of the yellow wet stuff, I'm sorry to inform you there is none in this chapter. There is one heck of a misunderstanding that leads the living statue of Michelangelo's David to entertain several pervy fantasies. Hopefully, that will make up for the lack of pee pee. A wee bit, at least. 


Hunter x Hunter
by Yoshihiro Togashi

Someone's had it with the crazy succession battle aboard The Black Whale and has decided to take matters into their own hands! They're determined to put a stop to it, but how do you stop something like this? It'll take a drastic measure, one that is as dangerous as it is bold. See what they do!
