    Yup, it's a nice moment since it pulls double duty in showing how much Yami's come to trust Asta's abilities AND showing that this is such a massive threat that even Yami just can't deal with it on its own. Really cool moment.

    On the one hand I hope this team up goes well. But on the other I don't want Dante to be defeated just yet, depending on the execution of that it might make everybody who lost to Vanica and Zeno look bad by comparison, I also want to see all three devil hosts interact now that we've got a clearer picture of their personalities.

    Spy x Family is a pleasant surprise. Lately when reading scanlated stuff I've found that I've gravitated to more stuff that's about family or work or adult relationships (hey, I'm getting older. It happens). This stuff usually doesn't find its way to bookstores though, because seinen and josei stuff really doesn't have a big audience in the U.S. So, how surprising was it to find something themed around family in a shonen title. Granted, it's still mostly a boys' action title with battles and espionage-fueled action. But it also, at least so far, seems to be about three loners who have no sense of normalcy forming their own family. Albeit, for their own reasons.
    Spy X Family is great, one of my top three favourite WSJ titles right now. It's a perfect blend of genuinely touching and heartwarming moments, hilarious humor and balls to the wall awesome action scene centered around a kinda oddball premise with a super charming main cast. And the art is great too. I just love everything about it.

    My one complaint would be that Yor doesn't get used as much as Loid or Anya, and I just kinda want to see more of her misadventures as well.

    Huh, that's seems kinda douchey and unprofessional. I assume that they haven't been giving any reasons towards why they're doing it?

    J-Novel Club and Yen Press haven't gotten a response from them yet.

    UPDATE: It looks as though that due to the COVID-19, Amazon has been more heavily relying upon automated systems to determine "problematic" content, and delisting appears to only affect Kindle editions, not the physical books.

    So, in other words, Amazon is repeating the same mistake that Youtube has with their algorithm bots.

    Oh big internet companies and their inadequate responses to anything. It's sad that you're so important to all of us.

    Black Clover: You know, I really like the relationship Asta has with his devil so far. They're just kinda cordial with each other.

    First time they met:

    Devil: Take my power and use it to crush your foe.

    Asta: Nah, I'm good.

    Devil: ...rea...really? You don't want this great dark power I can bestow onto you?

    Asta: Nope. Thanks for the offer though.


    This time:

    spoilers:
    Asta: Can I have some of that power you offered me before. I really need it to save my captain and friends.

    Devil: Yeah sure, but it's going to cost you a part of your body.

    Asta: Ok, sounds pretty fair. I'll deal with it as comes.

    Devil: Very well. Here you go buddy.
    end of spoilers

    And it'll be interesting to see what the exact consequences will be from Asta making this deal.

    He gets Noelle and Mimosa after Asta finally realizes they like him.

    I very much doubt that even a true devil's powers could open up Asta's mind to seeing any member of the opposite sex who isn't sister Lily as a viable romantic partner.

    The layers of shounen chastity within are just too thick.

    Huh, I had vaguely been aware that Bleach had a gacha game for a while now. What didn't click until yesterday however, is that there is now a giant world of fan service anime art for Bleach characters now.

    Yeah.

    Brave Souls has a lot of... impressive art for Bleach characters. Whether it's the first anime look at the characters in their final arc designs, new power ups with "official" designs from Kubo or just wacky but appealing holiday designs. The game has it all.

    That's Harribel after getting a power up form the hogykou. Yeah.

    3 Routes complete in Bokuben, and they were all the most traditional of the possible endings. Up next is MC ending up with either the college student or the teacher, both of which have some interesting possibilities.

    The college student/senpai route is the one I am most interested in - she is the latecomer girl and that is the single unluckiest romantic interest in anime or manga - I can't think of a single time I have ever seen them come out on top in a series. Even the childhood friend occasionally wins out - although for some disgusting reason less often then the actual sister. I typically dislike the loli type but she comes across as the most emotionally mature girl on the show, and she was the first one where I was able to see what she did for the protagonist (and vice-versa) as opposed to merely what he was able to do for her.

    I'm less interested in the teacher - I only like those types of romances under special circumstances, typically involving the younger one being the one pursuing a relationship and even then requiring some mitigating circumstances for me to buy into it.

    Yabuki Kentaro, artist of To-Love-Ru, did a Shounen Jump art spread of a bunch of Shounen Jump heroines in his art style, including Nami, Uruka, Noelle, and Mafuyu Kirisu.

    It should come as no surprise that that is the hottest I have ever seen of Nami.

    I don't know.

    Shun Saeki, mangaka for Food Wars, once drew a special chapter where the main heroines of the major WSJ series at the time met up and had their pictures taken. Nami posed nude with the very naughtiest bits of her just barely covered up.

    In terms of pure hotness that is tough to beat.

    Well, this is mostly a good shot at Legs compared to that kind of lewdness. Did Saeki kind of stick to Nami's design with just a bit of his own style in it? Because this looks like Nami entirely outside of her normal design like she came from To-Love-Ru.

    Saeki stuck to his own style for all the characters in the special chapter.

    It's a style that worked really well for Nami.
