Obon festival and Shonen Jump.

August 15 is Obon Festival in Japan.
Do you know this festival?
Umm, I'm too lazy to explain it so let's call Mr. Wikipedia !

Obon or just Bon, also referred to as "Day of the Dead," is a Japanese Buddhist custom to honor the departed (deceased) spirits of one's ancestors. This Buddhist custom has evolved into a family reunion holiday during which people return to ancestral family places and visit and clean their ancestors' graves, and when the spirits of ancestors are supposed to revisit the household altars. Also called the Feast of Lanterns, it has been celebrated in Japan for more than 500 years and traditionally includes a dance, known as Bon-Odori.

The reason I'm talking about this is that we won't have Shonen Jump next week because of Obon break. They will return to hometown or just enjoy one week break. Of course manga creaters also needs a break but I want to read One Piece early. Recent One Piece is great!! The world's strongest pirates VS World government.
Have you ever noticed that most Manga don't make gang fight of supernatural power? It's because this fight tends to make flaws on tactics. Readers will find better tactics and say "This character must had used that technique to him" It's like playing chess. Two chessmen is easy to make tactics, right? It can't be helped because manga creaters are no tactician. But Oda sensei seems to try to make it. I wanna cheer him.
