Hello people its meowth900 here coming at you with another Monday manga report. It’s a big issue of Jump with the monthly mangas like Blue Exorcist being back this week and Hunter x Hunter still surprisingly being around. It’s a rainy day for me today so it’s best to just curl up into a ball with some nice manga. Let’s get on with the show fellows!
The cover has a few manga author autographs and drawings. With good old Luffy at the center of it all.
I personally like 7 out of the 10 series listed here. But hey if you like Black Clover and We Never Learn and Boruto the manga its more power to you.
One Piece leads the pack with a pretty color page of Luffy and his friends and enemies.
I’m not sure whether that’s Boa Handcock or Robin but she sure looks happy with Luffy. I also like seeing Shanks and Sabo getting along but Ace is all mad at him. Ace is so grumpy. There’s also Sanji’s siblings and Cavendish too? There’s also Doflamingo sticking his tongue out at us. There’s also Trafalgar Law chilling in the corner hating everybody and Bellamy giving him the peace sign. At least I think that’s Bellamy, maybe it’s Rocinate I dunno. It’s hard to tell when he’s so far away.
We also get the results of the One Piece character popularity poll from Japan. I’m not sure if Viz did one at the same time or if they were too busy with Black Clover to bother with One Piece. Anyways the only highlight here is Zoro beat out Trafalgar Law and regained number 2.
The results continue from here! I like seeing older characters still get some love.
THE LIST STILL GOES ON! Look forward to when volume 87 comes out in like 2018. Anyways here’s the favorites from the American One Piece manga fans
It seems to be relatively the same in terms of top 3 but Brook is higher on the list and so are Nami and Robin. Poor Franky’s still in the low spots but he’s still a good strawhat.
Wow I spent too much time on the popularity poll I haven’t even gotten to the chapter yet. Well let’s get started on the continuation of Big Mom’s Attack On Strawhats. kingbaum gets badly hurt and Nami uses her lightning attack on Big Mom. Zeus the cloud eats the lightning balls and finds them to be tasty. He asks Nami for more and Luffy asks if they can get a ride. Zeus says only Big Mom can ride him because he gave her his soul. Nami asks Zeus if he could be her servant and then Big Mom tells the seducing woods to attack the strawhats.
Meanwhile Pudding asks for help because she loves Sanji?
WHAT A TWIST! I wonder if its real love or fake love.
Next in the lineup is Blue Exorcist and Yukio tries to learn more about his past via computer. Well actually no he doesn’t because some soldiers tell him to go home because in exorcist land anyone under 18 can’t be outside at night. He does learn that the True Knights Cross are evil as the Illuminati. Yukio feels depressed and goes to hide at a shrine. A couple years ago he did that after he argued with his dad. Then he ran into boobs-I mean Shiemi and they hang out. So this time he’s doing it but it’s snowing. Shiemi finds him again and they go hang out together inside her house. It looks like they almost kissed but it turns into the hug.
Shiemi you idiot you probably could have snapped him out of it if you didn’t mention Rin at all. I dunno why you’re still in this story other than being the moe girl. Anyways after that freakout Yukio tries to kill himself.
Too bad this is shonen where nobody dies, unless you’re in Hunter x Hunter or Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure. Anyways hey look it’s Satan!
I guess Yukio’s powers finally awaken this month? That’s cool. Also pinky haired boy shows up. Maybe he can help Yukio out in this sudden amazong development. Speaking of amazing developments…
Mephisto is on the TV!
Also Shiemi tells Rin about how Yukio went insane last night. She’s crying a lot about it too. I look forward to next month’s chapter!
Next in the lineup is My Hero Academia (good luck anime fans you’ll get an anime original episode this Saturday) The Night Eye fight is starting up, lot of punches going everywhere. Also I guess he’s ripped?
Then he attacks and Rappa’s mask rips off just enough so we can see his eyeballs.
Then Toga flirts a little bit with Rappa and that fuels him up. Then we get a flashback to when the bad guys first teamed up with the Yakuza. Holy crap we get to see Shigaraki’s face!
I feel very scared! Also oh my glob the art looks very busy at the end here, It’s so good though!
I look forward to the next chapter! AAAAAAHHHHH!
Next in the lineup is Dr Stone with another cute color page with Watermelon head.
Look at the fish detail! So yummy looking! We also get the closest thing to legal Case Closed in the USA.
Basically she’s eavesdropping on village people by going in disguise as a watermelon. It’s actually way cute!
So far all she got for info from those pretty girls was they wanted some boyfriends. Unfortunately Senku can’t make those things with science. Then she mentions Gamen the glutton and how he wants good fish to eat. Senku knows how to science that up! Because basically cooking is science. Now they all hunt for fox tail wheat plants.
Ingredients are combined into the most delicious shonen jump dish ever,
We also get the best reaction face yet!
This manga is great! More people should read it! Anyways the Senku Ramen business is just about to start up.
I hope this plan works.
Next in the lineup is Robot x Laserbeam. The coach says Hiragi has to stop playing, so Hiragi places all his hopes on Robato. So Robato declares the impossible!
Alright Robato I believe you can do this!
The second half of the golf match starts off noisy.
It also looks like he got a hole in one. Well this isn’t good. The artwork showing their golf opponents as scary lions sure is though!
Well I look forward to whatever happens next even if I don’t understand golf talk!
Next in the lineup is Black Clover which I’m not really into but hey it has a color page!
Next in the lineup is The Promised Neverland! The kids are still learning how to hunt but it’s going well!
50 more til it hits 100 chapters! But I think if a manga has lived this long in Jump it usually means it’s good for a while. We also learn some more dark stuff about the demon world and their food.
No lie this sounds like those farms where they mass produce chicken and hamburgers. Anyways there was some good parts of this chapter to balance out the darkness.
I look forward to what happens next on their journey!
Next in the lineup is We Never Learn but I don’t like that one so I will skip it! After that one it is Food Wars starting with something delicious!
The girl judge eats this gunkanmaki and gets a foodgasm! Red vinegar was used to make this dish taste extra good! The other contestants bring out their dishes hoping to win some points as well.
All of them look delicious!
I’m hoping for the bad guys to win so the other bitch tits will stay expelled if I’m being really honest here. Looking forward to the results and foodgasms next week though!
Next in the lineup is Hunter x Hunter! The cat and mouse games with Kurapika and the princes continue! Kurapika’s got to find a distraction! He manages to find one via a cockroach on the wall!
Time to use a cockroach for Nen stuff!
Woohoo! Now we have the power of cockroaches! We are like Pickle Rick! The chapter ends with the cockroch off on its journey to get important information!
Next and I think the last in the lineup is Seraph of the End!
The flashbacks continue with vampire talk, and pretty boys everywhere! The rescue Ferid plans are put into motion and it’s time for the attack!
There’s a lot of action, with vampires shouting ‘Die!” a lot. Then Yu’s in his crazy demon vampire form and jumps in like a beast! I’m excited to see him chomp up some evil vampires!
And with that Jump is all done! This issue felt short but also long when trying to recap it. Not to mention how tired I am from staying up for Pickle Rick last night. It was a good issue! I wonder what will be in the next issue.
Wait…aw darn. Well looks like there won’t be anything next week due to Obon festivals. Guess that means no Monday Manga Report next week. That’s okay though! I like a good day off! Look forward to my next report on August 21!
