Weekly Shonen Jump impressions before the scanlators release next Monday's issue.
God damn it, I really wish that I had people to discuss One Piece with because this chapter was amazing. Dressrosa is in chaos, Donflamingo's plans are up in smoke, and Sabo is making his move. Oh and Kyrios beheaded Donflamingo. I don't actually think he is dead (either the body that was just beheaded is actually a puppet or he can use his strong power to reconnect lost limbs), but it was a great follow up scene where basically the events exactly duplicated what happened ten years ago with the set up.
Great chapter, more world building and some entertaining fights.
Goddamn this arc is boring, can we just finish this series up already?
All You Need is Kill
Great chapter very emotional chapter, and I look forward to seeing where things go from here.
Dragonball One Shot
Really? This is something that needed to happen? *sigh* The TV special for Burdock was much more entertaining and this was way too Supermanny for my tastes.
Most of the chapter was kind of meh, but I did greatly enjoy the exchange with Troma towards the end.
I just finished reading this week's Shonen Jump and I too was pretty pleased with One Piece.
I was really happy that it seemed like we're finally progressing the arc. So much of this arc has been the backstory of Dressrosa and its people, and while that hasn't been bad it has distracted from the main action pretty significantly. Though I'm sure that we're going to learn that Mingo has a Buggy-like ability and that he isn't dead, I'd be pretty pleased if he is dead just to have that out of the way.
Naruto and Bleach both need to wrap it up. These series have both gone on for far longer than they should have. We know that this is the last arc of Bleach, but I really, really wish Tite Kubo would just get on with it! Sure, I like seeing Kenpachi fight as much as anyone, but the series has been limping along for years. Let's just get it done. I've been liking this arc of Naruto. It maybe has a few too many twists and turns, but it has been good. I don't know if it was ever announced that this is the last arc, but it feels like it should be and hopefully we're nearing the end.
All You Need is Kill is becoming a new favorite. Takeshi Obata is such a fantastic artist, and the story is really cool. My only complaint so far is that the plot seems kind of choppy. I guess this is hard to avoid given what is happening, but it does distract me somewhat.
I agree completely with this new Dragon Ball one-shot. It seems like Toriyama felt like he needed to tie Jaco and Dragon Ball a little more closely together and it wasn't necessary. Plus, as you said, the Burdock TV special was way better.
So far I'm liking Stealth Symphony. I like the art, and the premise is interesting. I just don't really see where the story is headed. It has kind of seemed all over the place. I know it's just beginning, so I'm not going to discredit the series for that yet. Just some direction would be nice.
Still really liking One Punch Man. I missed the first few chapters of the series (I know I could find/buy them, but I'm too lazy/broke), so I'm a little confused by some of the plot points still, but I like the action and the jokes a lot.
I don't really like World Trigger, Seraph of the End, Nisekoi, Blue Exorcist, or Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal, so I don't read those.
