By Mat K.

Welcome to another exciting issue of your favorite manga updater. I know some of you are wondering what legend, and why is it continuing?

Now if you read Naruto, (or even if you don’t), you may remember the last couple years around this time Viz started pumping out 4 issues a month or so in order to catch up with the rapidly progressing Japanese issues. Well, apparently we started getting dangerously close to current Naruto issues, and they realized we were still desperately behind in One Piece, because in 2010 it’s Luffy’s turn.
