    You can read japanese? Lucky. I really wanna see that new Bossun x Himeko arc plus the rest of Switches backstory. More so, i want to see it animated. I never read the manga outside of a few random chapters and the backstories, so the anime was how i got my weekly dose of SKET. Plus, the anime (on crunchyroll) would be subbed every week regardless, so it'd go way beyond the scanlation which is updated so irregularly.

    Also, about Naruto. Yeah, idk what Kishimoto was doing. I guess he doesn't know how to write a War. If the War would have been as epic as the Pain arc i'm sure nobody would have complained

    It's not just long winded, but it's also unlike Kishi. It should be more brutal, Naruto shouldn't be getting free powerups, and he should have more jutsu under his arsenal. ET spam was unnecessary, other than fan service, and Itachi should have been fighting using his own skills, not Izanami. So much wrong with this arc.


    And Beelzebub is still my favorite. I look forward to it more than I look forward to Naruto and OP.

    I must say I'm not enjoying Sket Dance as I used to since the 3d year started. At the moment I have great time reading Toriko and Beelzebub (the christmas arc had some very funny scene). Also I would recommend Souma. So far the 6 chapters have been really promising in term of comedy. It's probably the bzst of the 3 new series.

    It's my first language actually plus 12 years of going to Japanese school on Saturdays. *shudder* Yeah, it would be nice if the scanlations for SKET DANCE were up to date. Currently there are 264 chapters in total so we're still forty chapters behind.

    It's unfortunate because I know that Kishi has the potential to do better.

    Yup. As mentioned above, Kishi can and has shown us that he's capable of doing something much more than what he's presenting us so far. I was expecting the war to be more bombastic and gut-wrenching, but there's (hopefully) still room to work things around.

    Never liked Sket Dance, idk why really. Love Gintama though.

    Anyway, I voted for OP since HxH is on hiatus.

    One Piece is by far my favorite manga from any magazine. But Kuroko and Beelzebub are my second and third favorite respectively and they are all form the same magazine. WSJ does a wonderful job of collecting the best mangas.

    Oooh... Kochikame. When it comes down to it it's the one series that never lets me down. It's always there, it's always consistently entertaining. Nothing to write home about, but it sticks in my heart.

    Also Haikyuu and Kiruko-san, the former for being a really exciting an well-drawn sports series, the latter for making me laugh non-stop since chapter 1 came out.

    One Piece and Hunter x Hunter are probably my favorite manga of all time so I'm going to ignore them. Haikyuu!! is the best thing out of Jump in so long in my opinion and I get really excited when I see a new chapter is out. I've become a big fan of Furudate in the last couple of years.
