    Need to pick up and finish HSDK again, but yeah that one. Same for Oh My Goddess simply because as others have said, it was such a constant that you'd think it would run forever. As for the rushed feeling endings, I think it's due to the authors not quite having planned things that far and hitting the ground running. There have been some new manga that have kind of picked up the slack left by Naruto and Bleach such as Seven Deadly Sins, Kitetsu no Yaiba, Blue Exorcist and Seraph of the End, but they haven't even touched the levels of popularity.

    Note: I left out Promised Neverland since that's very different than the above mentioned.

    It was more that the the One Piece fans would discuss the chapter a lot more back then. Bleach would get a couple posts complaining about it and Naruto would get a few posts. But what's slowed down the threads has been the One Piece fans not having a page+ of discussion every week.

    I actually do miss Naruto. Or at least, I miss good Naruto. Even decent Naruto. When that series was on its game it was a damn good shonen. It's really a tragedy what happened to it by the end. Good god, those last dozen or so chapters were such a clusterfuck.

    I would also say The Breaker, but supposedly that'll be coming back for more.

    Oh, here's a more old-school choice: Slam Dunk. While it ended in a satisfactory way, it could have easily been continued and there was still room for interesting stories.

    Yep, ending was really going by fast. Favorite fight was Sakaki vs Hongo. Favorite Grand Master was Akisame. From Yami, Diego. The series was pretty fast paced and easy to marathon.

    And of course the best character in the story by far was mysterious teenager Garyu-X

    There was a lot going on. Too many plot points and characters. But that literally happens to 90% of battle manga that are ending. It’s kinda hard for me to pinpoint the story at it’s peak. Pre skip stuff was awesome.

    I glanced over Boruto but just doesn’t have the same charm as early Naruto. I guess many in here did enjoy when Naruto was on point. Kishi would sometimes draw moments of greatness.

    Naruto lost me at the end of the Pain fight. The final few arcs were tough for me to slog through after it all finished.

    New One Piece is out at Jaminis Box!

    From what I'm seeing, the people of Wano really don't know about DF's as Kinemon said. I'm also curious about both what Ace's motives and promise in being at Wano were about. Cool to see Hawkins again and I'm curious if he's fully sided with Kaido or playing him like Bege was Big Mom. He was some interesting abilities with his fortune telling and his DF so I'm curious to see more.

    It's only really funny if you are familiar with the sound effects from certain other types of Japanese media.

    Which of course the target audience of this would be.

    Oda said he was going to do an arc with Ace I just wonder how long it is going to go. During the summit war there was that Oars Jr and in his flashback it shows Ace making him a straw hat maybe that little girl thought him to weave hats.

    If the reveal from this week's Food Porn is literally true and not just a figure of speech then they just jumped the shark.

    They went with the lame cooking master boy plot with a twist of star wars.

    If we don't see Zoro again until Luffy meets up with him I'm going to be tilted.

    I started on Attack on Titan which I loved. Now I’m watching Knights of Sidonia which is cool so far, even some t&a lol. Wanna try Tokyo Ghoul.

    Knights of Sidonia was awesome. Until gender became a social construct.
