If you can't tell by this amazing cover, Devilyman is a hilarious manga! One of the funniest we've had in awhile and that's saying something considering we ran E-ROBOT! This is a bit more tame, but in some ways more twisted. One thing is for sure, that is one of the funniest character designs I've ever laid eyes on!

The clock is ticking, and many lives are hanging in the balance! Can Luffy recharge in time?

Nisekoi's getting serious! While this manga is usually very lighthearted, this new sick Marika storyline is anything but! Just what is ailing her and can her "Dearest Raku" help her?


by Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro

It's the end of the Monkey King arc! And what a fight...and dance...and gender flip it's been! The entire quest to obtain and eat pair has had the whole SJ Team laughing and discussing it to no end. Without a doubt, this is one of my favorite arcs of all time. This is why I love manga! Do you think Batman or Superman would try to eat pair? Heck's, no! And now it's on to the next adventure to fulfill Acacia's Full-Course Meal!

Food Wars

Naruto: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring

Naruto's back in action! Fighting a little kid, but one armed with the Sharingan! Just who is this kid and how does he have the Sharingan Eyes? And furthermore, who are Cho-Cho's "real" parents? Will she ever find them? So many mysteries! Actually, this manga has surprised me several times. I assumed it would would be about Boruto running around and causing problems, but it's much deeper than that. Kishimoto Sensei has managed, yet again, to surprise me!

Apparently, joining the right club is no easy feat when you're a Japanese high schooler!
