Ok, so here’s 3 one-shots done by Shimabukuro Mitsutoshi a.k.a Shimabuu a.k.a the author of Toriko and Seikimatsu Leader Den Takeshi!!.
These have been delayed a bit because I had Innocent and 3-Gatsu no Lion to focus on. Also the Oda-san manga took a while to find someone to clean it and for them to actually clean it because it has so many redraws.
The first one ran in Shounen Jump issue 2017-33, which came out July 17th 2017, “Memories with Oda-san Manga!”. It was part of the celebration of the 20th anniversary of One Piece by Eiichiro Oda, whom Shimabukuro-sensei is friends with. He talked a few experiences with him and it’s also a sorta short autobiography/memoir. It’s good, check it out if you haven’t seen it yet.
The 2nd two are “Halftime” and “Jijii 100%” (Geezer 100%) which ran together in semi-monthly manga Grand Jump issue 2017-19, which came out September 6th 2017. Both are pretty short but they’re both pretty entertaining gag manga that shows Shimabukuro is still totally capable of bringing the spirit and comedic timing he did with Takeshi all those years back.
They’re all pretty quick reads and definitely worth reading. I hope you check them out.
And now that I’ve got some free time, hopefully we’ll get some more Takeshi and 81diver done soon. Enjoy, everybody!
