Anyone else read this? I started a few days ago and I gotta say, this is quite a fun series when it comes to action. The artwork and characters reminds me a bit of Jojo Bizarre Adventures while the fantasy elements is quite detailed when it comes to the monsters. (they are measured by capture levels apparently). There are some mechanics focused on the two different worlds that exist in this series too.

300 chapters have been released so far and is still ongoing.

One of my favorite things in this manga is that the author allows fans to submit ingredients or monsters, and some of them actually become big parts of the story. You can find out more info and submit one on the English Shonen Jump website.

I've only read this since I started reading the English Weekly Shonen Jump a couple months ago but it has quickly become one of my favorite to read each week.

Chapter 303


Crazy chapter. The Viz Editors in their weekly podcast were predicting that they might all be experiencing similar things and possibly illusions. Seems like a good prediction to me.

And to think he was drawn by a fan.



I wonder if the fans choose the capture levels as well or if the mangaka decides that depending on how he implements them in the story.

To me this looks like the typical Shimabukuro showing you stuff that didn't actually happen chapter.
