Introducing our newest JUMP START, Samon the Summoner—a demonic comedy that'll keep you in stitches! And along with some new faces, we've got some familiar ones as well because the Bakuman boys are back in town with the first chapter of a special two-part series. There's also a chapter of Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V in this issue as well. As you may have already guessed, this issue is a whopper! Thirteen series and 315 pages! Have fun! 

Samon the Summoner

One Piece

The last chapter of One Piece ended on one heckuva cliffhanger! Luffy was asked to become the head of a massive pirate fleet comprised of the heroes who fought with him on Dressrosa! Did he say yes? Did he say no? Will there be a giant party with lots of dancing and drinking, or a bunch of disappointed pirates? Find out!

Toriko has gotten progressively crazier and crazier. And this week's chapter adds more crazy fuel to the crazy fire! Midora and Joie go at each other with all they've got. But this is no normal battle, these are two godlike characters who fight battles beyond the simple comprehension of man!

I am totally on board with this JUMP START. Last week's chapter taught me a lot about the game of shogi. This week's chapter taught me a lot about the characters. And so far, I like them all! All the members of the shogi boarding house are entertaining. And the main character is very likable. Probably because he's the classic misfit that I can identify with. This is one JS I don't want to end! 

by Tite Kubo

Last week things were not looking good for Nemu and Mayuri in their battle against the giant arm, Pernida! In fact, this battle has been back and forth so many times it's downright dizzying!

World Trigger
by Daisuke Ashihara

The current Rank Wars match is finally over! And now that the dust has settled, it's time for some introspection! Tamakoma-2 did okay in the match, but definitely showed their overall lack of experience. If they want to improve in the ranks, they're going to have make some adjustments. What will they do?

Black Clover
by Yûki Tabata

The fight for Capital City takes yet another unexpected turn! In fact, a couple. Not going to ruin the surprises, but I will say this battle is far from over!

Food Wars!: Shokugeki no Soma

Erina's dad has taken over the school! This is the most earth-shattering event that's happened to the school since the manga started! Lots of amazing meals have been served and plenty of clothes have been blown off, but a major villain character is something completely new. As much as I enjoy this manga, I am seriously looking forward to reading it more than ever now. I love villains!
