What's hilarious is how they even MENTIONED that tanooki were viewed as having large testicles in one of their articles long ago during part of YuYu Hakusho (I think it was) yet they go about editing away any reference to 'em.
I found it weird how his "Belly Buster" came out of that area and even looked like testicles.
Now I'm wondering how the Zatch Bell Manga will turn out......although, the dub is better then most dubs I see nowadays.
I haven't seen the July 2005 edition of Shonen Jump in bookstores yet. Maybe I should just do the old fashion method of going to the bookstore the day Shonen Jump is supposed to come out (which is June 7th, unfortunately)...
Reminder from August 09, 2010- Name my future Reshiram "Griffin"...
Well, I just got the July Issue yesterday and finished reading it yesterday to, but forgot to post about it.
Preview of the Month: None, there was no preview for a manga this month
New manga: None, according to SJ preveiws of Mangas are taking DBZ's slot for the rest of the year.
YuGiOh: Im not a big fan of YuGiOh, but it was ok
One Piece: Excellent, but I missed all the action. Oh, and the Arlong Arc began in this issue.
Naruto: Excallent, with the end of the second exam
Shaman King: Could have been better, Yoh and Ren still fight in this one
YuYu Hakusho: Im beggining to like this Manga and I thought this was a good chapter. An added bonus was there was a half naked girl, only her chest and between her legs was covered by vines, in it
Hikaru No Go: This is one of my favorites.We begin to see how much Hikaru has improved in his game and what his future plans are.
Anyway, hope you guys enjoy this issue as much as I did.
Naruto: 9/10 Very good drawings and storyline
One Piece: 8/10 Also a good manga (to me, Invincible Pearl from Don Krieg's Army is weird)
Hikaru No Go: 9/10 Excellent Drawings. Storyline's okay
Yu-gi-oh!: 8/10 Good Storyline but drawings from vol.1 looks strange.
Shaman King: 8/10 Nice Drawings. Horohoro ,the Ainu guy, is cool
DBZ: 7/10 Ok but could be better.
Yu Yu Hakusho: 7/10 Alright but the drawings are strange
Legendz: (GN[graphic novel] only)9/10 Excellent
Eyeshield 21: Haven't read
Hunter X Hunter: Haven't read
I's, Beet, Ultimate Muscle, and Sandland: Haven't Read
I subscribe but id rather get it in stores. It always comes late for me. Usually 3 weeks after the store gets it > the only reason i subscribe is to get the goodies like oh say... Obelisk the Tormentor...
I got August like a week or two ago now, and boy was it great! Viz has decided to skip over the first two JoJo's and go on over to the Japanese one, how surprising...
One Piece and Naruto are heating up aswell. Don't forget to mention Shman King, Ren and Yoh finally settled their battle in a heated draw. The Priest had a mock battle and The Nameless Pharaoh showed Kaiba the power of Kuribo.
Coming next month is a preview of Bobobo Bobo Bobobobo or what ever it is....
I read Shonen Jump too. But here, they come a bit diffferent. 'Cause Jump is new here so there's only Naruto, Shaman King, SandLand and Yu-Gi-Oh. Finito. Naruto is in the Wave-country, Yoh has just met Anna again, SanLand is on the second last and Yu-Gi-Oh is on the duel against the Ocean Duelist.
Thanks to Blaziken's Charizard for the trainer card and to Poochyena, the banner-master, for the banner.
Paired up with...Buizeru, a Golden Sun-friend.
I claimed Sami from Advance Wars in the Bishounen thread!
I also claimed Andy+Sonja ( Warshipping ) and Sami+Mel Mah ( Revisedshipping ) in the Couples thread!!!
I have September 2005. In it there is a free YGO card and a preview of BoBoBo-Bo, as well as two chapters of YGO, Naruto, SK, HnG, and three chapters of OP. Next month is a free demo of the new OP game and a preview of Death Note.
October 2005 just came in. It came with a demo of Grand Battle! :D At a quick glance...
-There's an advertisment for Naruto shirts at Hot Topic!
-Of course, there are preview pages about the Naruto anime
-There's a brief history of ninja on those same pages
-There's a pic with the Sexy no Jutsu in it :O It looks unaltered
-There's also a preview page for Bo^7
-The previewed manga of the month is Deathone(it took me a minute to read the name...some of the letters are rotated in the title)
-The Naruto chappies are of the Shino VS Zaku prelim fight, and the Kankuro VS Tsurugi Misumi fight
-Yugioh is still flashbacks of Yami no Yugi's life...
-Hikaru passed the insei test! (they told you that right at the start of the chapter, so no whining about me spoiling it for you :P)
-One Piece is still in the middle of the Arlong Arc.
-It's the B'z fight in Shaman King! There's also the start of the "Ren goes to defeat his father" arc...
-YYH is still Jin VS Yusuke...
-Hey! There's a One Piece trading card in this issue, too! :D Oh, and info about the TCG.
-And of course, there's a page about Grand Battle...and "secret" codes & "exclusive" tips, along with how to unlock...BON CLAY! :O
-The One Piece anime guide is still here...it has pictures of...CHOPPER! And Crocodile!
-And some Halloween stuff, including a hilarious pic of a guy in a Yugi costume(with hair that ISN'T 3 feet tall!)
Ooh, I like Shonen Jump too, even though I'm a girl! It's way better than Shoujo Beat in my opinion. What's happening is mine is the same thing as Juputoru's. Here are my ratings.
Shaman King: 9/10 Great story, very interesting.
Yu-Gi-Oh!: 7/10 Not a big fan of it, but it's okay.
Naruto: 9/10 Lots of action, pretty funny, good cast of characters.
Bleach: 10/10 One of the best mangas I've read.
Dragon Ball Z: 6/10 No comment except that it's just acceptable.
Hikaru No Go: 9/10 The artwork is beautiful and the story makes kinda interested in playing Go.
Yu Yu Hakasho: 5/10 I like the anime a lot, but the manga's not so appealing.
One Piece: 8/10 Very peculiar, yet funny.
Eyeshield 21: 4/10 Err, this one's kinda strange. I don't really like it.
I"s: Don't wanna know. I'm a girl, and this one is specifically for boys. >.>
Ultimate Muscle: 3/10 Not a fan of this one. Really weird.
Sandland: 2/10 *yawns* This one pretty much bored me to death.
Beet, HunterxHunter and Legendz: Haven't read

Why do I get the feeling that the name of the human in Death Note is actually Hikari, rather than Light? :|
Scans that I've read have his name as Raito, but whatever. Who in their right mind would name their kid Light? -__- And Death Note is one of my favorite manga series too. T.T Thankfully though, other than that name change, the Viz's edition for the preview was actually pretty damn good.
That isn't nowhere near my comments towards Naruto and One Piece, though. There was a f*cking analogy compared to guns in the last chapter in Naruto. Hey, Viz, maybe you don't pay attention, BUT THERE AREN'T ANY GUNS IN NARUTO. And there was something that bothered me about One Piece this month, but I can't remember now. :/
