Food Wars! covers always make me hungry! And you can bet his stir fry would be unlike any you've ever tasted! Look how crisp and delicious all those veggies look. Yum! I tried to make stir fry for about six months. I messed it up about 80% of the time. That was when I officially gave up cooking for good. So take it from someone who has eaten a lot of bad stir fry, this looks great! 

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

The battle of the bear meat is over! The winner has been declared! It was a topsy-turvy shokugeki, but the judges have spoken and the contest is decided. Like two fierce grizzlies fighting for domination in the wild, it was an incredible battle. But only one bear stands tall and the other must shirk away and lick his wounds. See who's left standing!

One-Punch Man
story by One, art by Yusuke Murata

The fearsome fight between Hellish Blizzard and Monster Princess Super S continues! In the last chapter, Hellish Blizzard was getting whipped...literally! Monster Princes S's ability to control people swung the odds in her favor by turning Hellish Blizzard's own henchmen against her. But the battle's not over yet! 

by Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro 

Shimabukuro Sensei has served up an emotionally satisfying chapter of Toriko! It's been an incredible journey since Toriko and Komatsu first met almost four hundred chapters ago. I've read a lot of "wrap up" chapters in manga, and this is one of the best. Fans will be very happy to see how Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro has handled it. All the great characters get a moment to shine. Classy! Enjoy! 


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

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

This manga has more twists and turns than a family-sized serving of chow mein! And now that Ray has spilled the beans that he's been working for mom and helping Emma at the same time, there's a bit of trust that's going to have to be regained. Can Emma get through to him that everyone's life is worth saving? Or is he too selfish and stubborn to change? Find out! 

Promised Neverland

My Hero Academia
by Kohei Horikoshi

My Hero Academia is one of the most consistent manga in the magazine. Horikoshi Sensei always comes through with a solid chapter and often an amazing one. But this week, he really outdid himself. Not only is it an amazing chapter, it's about an unexpected character. An absolutely fascinating read. You're in for a treat! 

Black Clover
by Yûki Tabata

Asta's newly fixed arms are stronger than ever! And he's already had a huge effect on the fight. But we're dealing with some of the strongest magic users in the land and this battle is just getting started. Are an anti-magic sword and a positive attitude enough to turn the tables? The action continues!

Black Clover

Red Sprite
by Tomohiro Yagi

Nalbion is under attack by Edenia! And Alfred's caught in the crossfire as he wants to protect his adopted country no matter what the cost. But Tatsu's not giving up on his old friend, he's more determined than ever to help out. A big battle with cool tanks and stuff headed your way!

Love Rush! 
by Ryohei Yamamoto

It's the final chapter of Love Rush! And boy, what a rush it's been! This manga had an abundance of energy and beautifully drawn art. Plus lots of antics and wonderful sense of fun. Since Weekly Shonen Jump has gone digital and weekly, we've seen a lot JUMP STARTs come and go. And I have learned, it's much harder to get a hit than I thought. But I have the feeling we'll see Yamamoto Sensei again. I'm rooting for him!
