Hello, and welcome to the latest edition of Shonen Showdown, the weekly battle anime and manga recap that's about to go full kaiju on yer asses! We'll have the world in our thrall long before they can boot up that cool Pacific Rim robot to stop us!
Indeed, we've got a ton of sheer power on display in our full-scale roster up for your enjoyment this week! Chris has brought the hotness of Hunter x Hunter, Pedro and Kristina deliver the sweet goods of One Piece and Fairy Tail, and yours truly has Bleach and Naruto in the bag. And by "bag", I mean "below the jump where you can read it and get PUMPED for the latest developments in the world of young male-targeted Japanese superhero comics and cartoons!"
