Diverse hosts, each fantastic in their own way!
This is one of my favourite manga podcasts - highly recommended! What I love most about it is that the hosts’ different backgrounds and geographical locations are often reflected in their discussions, making them more nuanced and interesting. Dakazu brings some excellent translation notes as he’s fluent in Japanese, as well as being able to bring up untranslated works by some creators as he follows Japanese releases. This gives us a bigger picture view of their work. Darfox brings some really insightful and compassionate takes on many of the books discussed (stuff I’d never have thought of but then completely agree with), as well as excellent Spanish edition/dub commentary every now and then! As I’m over the same side of the Atlantic as Seamus, it's great to hear a European voice in the mix. Also, he just doesn’t take any crap and is always on a quest for something new and non-derivative. I want to hear about those things, and I appreciate when he pulls books up for being stereotypical or pandering. Morgana has some unique insights into the books discussed coming from a career background in selling comics. As she’s also a parent, it’s valuable to hear that point of view as well. She also brings a fab sense of humour and infectious love for the macabre :) Definitely give this show a go - if you like it there are literally hundreds of back episodes to catch up on too (which is what I’m doing now…).Read full review »

Honestly surprised I just found this podcast now- feels like listening in with friends. Everyone seems well informed of the series discussed (both popular and lesser known titles are talked about) and the guests that appear are perfect for the topics mentioned. My only critique could be that it...Read full review »

This is one of the best podcasts I have listened to in years. I very much enjoy hearing what manga the hosts are reading each week, and the diversity in genres and subject matter always keeps me interested. Most of the series covered aren't mainstream, but that's what I love about this...Read full review »
