Jean and Jeff take a quick look through the week of shonen on Beamcast!
First up is Stealth Symphony 6, the latest chapter of a series already garnering plenty of attention. Jig’s early adventures in unfamiliar and dangerous surroundings are going over well with many readers, so the introductory conflict he faces here will need to parlay that early advantage into long-term interest.
From a newcomer to a multimedia phenomenon: To Aru Kagaku no Railgun 69 mostly settles an enjoyable arc, but not before serving up a massive dose of confusion. Light novel enthusiasts undoubtedly have the edge in deciphering Touma’s latest intervention in Misaka’s life, while those who exclusively read the manga can only stand in bewilderment over what happened.
Finally, Hayate no Gotoku! 445 twists its affable protagonist into someone far more sinister before sending him off to fall into the depths of a haunted island. Perhaps lovestruck Hinagiku will finally realize the futility in chasing after such an unlucky man.
