Luffy, Luffy, Luffy! This is one of the greatest SJ covers of the year and it's obvious why--Luffy! It's a part of a big ongoing celebration of the 20th Anniversary of One Piece. And for this special cover, over 2,800 fans submitted fan art and 100 were chosen for the cover. It must be quite the feeling to see your fan art on the cover of Weekly Shonen Jump! Congrats!

One Piece  
by Eiichiro Oda

This must be the most exciting cake-centric chapter of a manga ever! Baking's not normally associated with "excitement," but when the lives of all your mates are on the line, it ups the excitement level a bit. The cake is done, but getting to to Big Mom will be a different story. Especially with a very angry Oven standing in the way! Oven the person, not an actual oven. More cake chaos coming at ya!

The Promised Neverland

Emma's woken up in a wondrous town full of charming little buildings and clown balloons. Is it the happiest place on Earth? Since this is The Promised Neverland, you can probably guess the answer to that. Find out what sinister new dangers await our plucky young heroine! 

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

If you think Food Wars! needs more people with swords chopping off dude's heads, then have we got a chapter for you! I think Shun Saeki is one of the best artists working in the manga industry and this chapter makes me really want to read an action manga drawn by him. This chapter truly puts the "war" in Food Wars! Enjoy! 

Food Wars

Robot x Laserbeam
by Tadatoshi Fujimaki 

One of the best things about reading sports manga are the exaggerated ways the mangaka draws the sports action. You wouldn't think golf could look that exciting, but there's a few panels in this chapter that may just change your mind. Plus, we find out a little more about Dorian Green and why he became a golfer! 

My Hero Academia
by Kohei Horikoshi 

While our heroes prevailed against Overhaul and his yakuza gang, the aftershocks are still being felt. And although many have taken serious damage, there are some that fared far worse than others. The cost of being a hero can be quite high as you'll see in this intense chapter. 

My Hero Academia
