Not only Dr. STONE: other highlights of Shonen Jump
The cover of the magazine this week is dedicated to The Elusive Samurai, the new manga by Yusei Matsui (Assassination Classroom). The work is meeting public approval, with its unique mix of shonen and historical truth.
Chapter 48 continues to follow this line, citing a peculiar historical fact of the Kamakura War in the fourteenth century. In fact, it is said that to allow the coordinated attack between Ashikaga Takauji and Nitta Yoshisada in two different locations in Japan on the same day was a tengu, who is represented here as a ninja.
Break for My Hero Academiainstead, with the author who seems to want to take his time to conclude the story. Come back instead One Piece, where Kidd and Law don’t give up on Big Mom and unleash yet another combo attack.
