This was mine:

Feels about right, though I feel Beat & Motion, Spy x Family and Martial Master Asumi are snubbed by not having as many chapters.  If this was expanded to a Top 10, Show-ha Shoten and Elusive Samurai would definitely be in there as far as enjoyment goes.

I haven’t read all the new stuff for this week yet but I am loving the action in MMA, Elusive Samurai, and Sakamoto!

 

MMA #27

 

I am super hyped for Nao—she can do this!!! Ain’t over yet though.


Elusive Samurai #139

 

Two captivating battles going on at the same time. No way that Tokiyuki is down for the count, because he’s the MC and therefore has plot armour… but he definitely took a hard hit there :uhoh: I might be more worried about Kojiro. Things were going a bit too easily for him before his opponent got juiced up by that needle-arrow thing.

 

Sakamoto #149

 

Love how all the pro assassins can’t stop one fat dude and a girl :rotfl:

I am really looking forward up this next showdown Nagumo and bad-guy.

Second pretty much everything here(these are also the three I've read so far)

 

On Elusive Samurai

Spoiler

Tokiyuki almost certainly alive because of the whole "learn your enemy's secret technique" thing.  Still pulling for Kojiro!  My man deserves a victory, and after some of the struggles/losses they've faced recently, it would be nice to see the Elusive Warriors have another total victory.  We'll see though...

I feel like the Elusive Warriors are definitely due for a total victory. And I am for sure 100% pulling for Kojiro. I dunno, I’m just a tad worried it could get ugly for somebody. I don’t think there have been any major death flags for Kojiro… but the good guys haven’t had any devastating losses since Yorishige ( :salute: ) and this is a war after all. I am gonna be super bummed out if/when there are more big losses on Tokiyuki’s side :crying2: Very much hoping that doesn’t happen though.

I binged a bunch of JJBA Part 6 - Stone Ocean over the holidays. Almost caught up to current. IIRC up to chapter 109 is out on the Jump app. 49 chapters to go to finish it, so that’s basically  a year if it’s on a weekly schedule. 
 

Stone Ocean was a slow starter for me, similar to Golden Wind, but some of the characters and stands have really grown on me. I am enjoying it.

Sakamoto #152–That was an intense fight between Nagumo and Gaku! :O.O:

Fuuuuuck.  I had a feeling it was coming.  I was looking on jajanken a few weeks ago and it's been ranking terribly each week.  Which is such a shame because I thought it had a lot to offer. Mirrored the best of sports shonen storytelling, but had enough great art and characters with heart that it felt like it stood on its own.  Maybe just bad timing, I dunno.  Really disappointed about it regardless.

 

Gonna try and catch up on the last couple weeks of stuff soon.  Been a bit lazy about it.

It’s a good time for getting caught up on stuff. Lots of good action going on in Sakamoto and Elusive Samurai right now. Akane-banashi it still on a good run too.

The most recent Show-ha Shoten almost got some tears out of me halfway through.  It's curious how Nazutani had decent intentions but became a legit dick in the process. Excited for the next chapter.

Yeah for sure. The author succeeded in adding depth and complexity to that character. Basically got me to empathize with a character that I never expected to.

DB Super #102 — We’re officially past the events of the Super Hero movie now. It hasn’t launched into a new story arc yet but I assume it will eventually. This was a fun “let’s see who’s stronger now” sparring chapter which is going to carry into at least one more chapter. I liked it.
