Cover SmallCover
by Yûki Tabata

Another Black Clover cover? Two in a row! What does it mean? Nothing! At all. Really. It's not a conspiracy. We swear. Of course, the more I say it's not a conspiracy, the more it seems like one. But it isn't! It's just a random coincidence that doesn't mean anything. Seriously! It is a neat cover, though. And a rare cover appearance by the coolest Magic Knight Captain ever—Yami! 

Black Clover
by Yûki Tabata

Asta's arms are back! After trying to cut them off in desperation, the queen of the witches has healed him using her incredible magic. Naturally, she's got an ulterior motive, but for now, she needs him to fend off the incoming invasion. For a guy with no magic, he's become one of the strongest characters in the story. Now it's time to get those swords a swinging! 

Black Clover

So much happens in this chapter, I wouldn't dare say a word for fear of spoiling it! Major events that will change everything! And something that's been incomplete for many, many chapters of the manga finally gets completed. A huge chapter coming up!

Lightning and his faithful assistant Bon continue to probe the mysteries of True Cross Academy.

Has the shower been possessed? All mysteries will be answered as they continue their quest to find out what happened on The Blue Night!  

Blue Ex

My Hero Academia
by Kohei Horikoshi

The results are in and not everyone has passed the test and gotten their Provisional License Exam! It's really sad, but it looks some of the characters will be moving forward. I don't want to spoil who made it and who didn't, but you'll be surprised! And maybe even mad. I was kinda mad. I'm still kinda mad! 

manga by Shirow Miwa, based on the Rooster Teeth series created by Monty Oum

Another chapter of RWBY, the manga prequel to the hit animated web series. Knowing next to bupkis about this series before reading this manga, I'm rapidly becoming interested in their world. There has been a lot of info that's come out in these last two chapters and this one adds even more. Plus, a really cool battle! Battles peppered with exposition! A classic manga technique!

The Promised Neverland

Ray's the traitor! But like many things in this manga, it's more complicated than it first seems. He's definitely feeding information about the escape attempt to Mom, but he has his own reasons for doing so. It looks like the plan for the big escape just got a lot more problematic!
