A good ToC for me this week, bearing in mind some of my selected series are absent/have CP so are not ranked. Gintama definitely surpassed my expectations, Triggertards - I mean -World Trigger fans won't be too pleased this week.
A reminder that this week is a double issue. And no, it doesn't mean there're two manga chapters in an issue, it means this week's chapters will account for 2 weeks, essentially meaning there's a break next week.
In addition, there won't be a blog post from me in 2 weeks as I'll be away at a music festival. Sad, I know. Try not to miss me too hard. So expect the next post in 3 weeks. If you're lucky.
My Manga of the Month for August is Toriko! I'mma tell you about it, and if you're interested, give it a look. If you already read it, please give your reactions to the series - what you like and dislike about it.
Toriko is a written and illustrated by Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro. It has been serialized in Jump since May 19, 2008, and has been collected into 25 tankōbon volumes. It follows the adventure of Toriko, a Gourmet Hunter, as he searches for rare, diverse foods to complete a full-course meal. A man with inhuman ability, he utilizes his incredible strength and knowledge of the animal kingdom to capture ferocious, evasive, and rare beasts to further his menu. He is accompanied by the weak and timid chef Komatsu, who, inspired by Toriko's ambition, travels with him to improve his culinary skills and to find rare ingredients. Toriko and his friends often fight against the Gourmet Corps, who seek to take control of the world's entire food supply and are looking for the highly-sought after ingredient GOD, which the legendary Gourmet Hunter Acacia used to end the war that took place five-hundred years before the series began.
The manga series is licensed for an English-language release by Viz Media in North America and Madman Entertainment in Australasia. Madman also licensed the anime series in Australasia, while Funimation Entertainment has licensed it in North America.

Sorry this is late. Had to work, then went to get wasted, so no time to do this.
A good ToC this week. Very shocked to see Gintama where it is, though. World Trigger seems to be holding its own nicely in the ToC. Also shocked to see Mutou Black end so quickly. One Piece gets the Lead CP and Cover next issue, AC and Hime-dol get the CP. There's also a one-shot by mangaka Youichi Amano, dunno what it's about.
Next week is a double-issue. For those of you who don't know what this means, it's that next week's issue will account for 2 weeks. So in theory, we're getting chapters next week and a one-week break, in contrast to the common misconception of there being 2 chapters in 1 issue.
As for my Manga of the Month, August shall be for... Toriko!!
That's pretty much it for this week. Thanks for reading, see ya next week! ^.^
