    Is Gantz worth a read?

    Like edge lording and being bored by fights that never end?

    If so, Gantz is perfect for you.

    Baki series - Heard about this long running series for years and it lives up to the hype. Its certainly refreshing after reading so many happy go lucky "don't kill" mangas.

    The art is a mix of old style Japanese paintings, 80s North Star-esk manga, and modern manga. It creates these strange face and body dimensions that make people look like monsters.

    Jojo doesn't look quite strange. One thing I've noticed is that Baki characters have very protruding Warthog like cheek bones.

    I just checked in on Blue Exorcist for the first time in quite a few months, and holy shit.
    Yukio finally turned on Rin and defected to the Illuminati. It's been foreshadowed for years, and yet it still hit like a gut punch.

    I take it you haven't seen the untranslated issue that came out on the fourth. That one should knock them socks off.

    I can only find enough on Google Images to form a loose picture of what Chapter 98 looks like, and yeah, it looks like a motherfucker of a chapter.

    I love a good Mephisto info dump, and it looks like we're going to get a good one after this chapter. Speaking of which...
    ... after everything we've seen so far, I have to revisit the question: Where do you think Mephisto fits into all of this? I'm really not sure anymore, but I still think that he's ultimately, in the most roundabout and selfish way possible, on humanity's side.

    Anything to get out from under his older brothers thumb is his motto. The brothers are just a means to an end of being free from his control and doing whatever he wants.

    I for see our new flame hearted Rin using his magic powers to close the portal to hell.

    Do we need spoilers? I can't remember if anyone but us reads.

    Better safe than sorry, I guess. What doesn't require spoilers is this question that I've also been pondering: Are we now starting to approach the end of the overall story, or is this just the new status quo?
