The first chapter of Bone Collection is out
https://mangaplus.shueisha.co.jp/viewer/1006691

My thoughts: Fairly standard shonen stuff. A bit too much of the 'our main character is a pervert' gags, but the premise is solid enough, if nothing special. The character designs are alright. The scene with the dad worrying was good. Not really enough action to determine how future fight scenes would be portrayed. And while the chapter sets up the setting and the mc's power, there isn't much direction as far as where the story plans to go from here

I guess I'll read this until I get bored of it.

Bone Collection's climax involving a gag where the MC touches the girl's boobs to use her power doesn't inspire much confidence in me.

So pretty much everyone agrees Rizu is a bottom-tier heroine, but her chapters being taken over by Sekijou is funnier than any joke Tsutsui put in this arc.

It also somehow keeps the Sekijo/Rizu ship afloat.

Do you think someone had a word about how rapey Andy seemed, or was it the other way around, and the point was to add some raunchy 'fanservice' before the plot and other characters got introduced?

I don't know if other are still reading this, but the past 2 chapters have been extremely effective.

Most battles have been completely bloodless to the point of making the setting feeling a bit soft. I rather liked how soft it was, because the story has been so lighthearted. But these recent chapters have been doing a lot to bring more shades of dark to the story and with the leads suddenly even bleeding I find myself at the edge of my seat.
I wonder what Caligula can do. Would be pretty funny if she also gets pushed back.


I wonder when Lululola will start wearing her eyepatch again.

I'm still reading, it's a fun adventure, and I enjoy the characters, plus it seems like they're teasing some more of the mysteries.

Lululola's eyepatch was keeping her incredible power contained, but now that she and the team are encountering stronger foes, she needs to let it all out.

I'm enjoying the current arc purely because it's primarily been about making Sekijou happy.
Although these being what-if arcs means there's the unfortunate implication that if Nariyuki doesn't end up with Ogata then Sekijou's family problems don't get sorted.

New SHY. When you really think about it, kunoichi are just magical girls but with knives. And as always, a shinobi always strikes directly to the heart.

I don't think it was intended to be transphobic, just a "his brother is a secret pervert just as he is" joke, but still, ugh. I don't think I'll continue it either, as it wasn't funny and you could barely call that an action scene.

Out of all the developments in the story, I wouldn't have expected Chris becoming a massively popular Twitch streamer. He even did the "Hey [UsernameX], thanks for the bits" thing you see streamers do. I really love how much Agravity Boys keeps being so surprising and still making it work.

Mashle surprised me. I was a bit bored when it started, but then he started casting his bogus magic followed by that suddenly beautiful 2 page spread really took me by surprise. And the "8 left" was fantastic.
It's interesting that the only reason Mashle's punching poo poo works is because every opponent is James Bond evil.


Moriking is quite funny. Poor doggy


I loved that the HB was up to his old tricks again in Agravity Boys. He's such a dick.



I read Bone Collection both chapters, but I don't really see why people are getting worked up by it. The Protag is a pervert and the boobs were closest by the first time, while the second time the girl offered her thigh.
The weapons he pulled out looked pretty neat, but beyond that it's just not very interesting and I don't see it getting any better. So count me out on this one.

Ask me about the hate crime perpetrated against a gay black man, and how it was a real hate crime and totally not fabricated. I am well acquainted with the facts of this actual hate crime which actually took place in actuality.

it's an odd story. the guy out of desperation and confusion plagiarizes a masterpiece, but it isn't a victimless crime.
