One Piece Goes on Hiatus Due to Author’s Surgery

The One Piece manga is currently in the middle of a very exciting story arc – with Zoro facing off against the strongest executive from the Doflamingo family and Luffy (along with Law and a couple of others) going straight to face off with Dofla himself. There’s also a big reveal about why Law hates Dofla but I’m not going to reveal it here – the point is that the manga is very close to the peak story-wise right now, which is why it’s sad to know that it’s going to go on a 2 week hiatus.

According to a message from author Eiichiro Oda himself, the hiatus is because he has developed peritonsillar abscess last year, which has frequently gotten in the way of his normal work schedule, so he has opted to get the tonsils removed via surgery instead. One Piece is scheduled to return in time for the magazine’s 30th issue on June 23.

Oda’s (somewhat flippant) message:

New J-Stars Victory VS. Clip Focuses on Bleach’s Ichigo Kurasaki

We’re only a few days away from the release of Namco Bandai’s interfranchise 3D fighter, J-Stars Victory VS., but they’re not done with the character previews yet. This time around, they have released a new video focusing on Bleach’s main protagonist, the part-shinigami, part-quincy, part-hollow, and part-fullbringer Ichigo Kurosaki:

New J-Stars Victory Vs. Trailer Features Gon Freecs

Namco Bandai’s upcoming cross-franchise 3D fighter, J-Stars Victory Vs., has just released a brand new trailer. This time around, it focuses on Hunter x Hunter’s primary protagonist, the son of the famous hunter Ging Freecs, Gon.

Gon is a highly skilled, altruistic, and all-around friendly young boy who is constantly searching for adventure. In search of his legendary father, Gon meets potential allies along the way and trains enough to be considered a formidable hunter even by people who have been around way longer than he is. His most prominent weakness is the fact that he’s not very good at math.
