Not much news lately as we approach the summer season, however, the manga it’s at its peak.
There’s been some ramblings on the manga ending, but I really doubt it for now.
On the new anime and the upcoming movie there’s nothing new yet.
However, there’s news of who will be the cast for the English dubbed version of the latest Blu-ray releases
Important News on July 27
The latest edition of Weekly Shonen Magazine by Kodansha (34) indicated that there will be an important announcement on July 27, the date that the 35th edition comes out, which is also the 10th anniversary of the manga.
Could it be the end of the manga? a new special arc? more news about the movie?
My bet is a special chapter that sets the ending of the manga in 2017, let’s see what happens
