In our followup episode to “Intro to Manga”, Nick and Jason talk about the strange, awkward, and beautiful stories of popular Manga titles: “Akira”, “Ode to Kirihito”, “Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure”, and “Lone Wolf and Cub”. Join in as they discuss what themes totally hit home and others that surely get lost in translation. You’ll meet doctors that turn into dogs, samurai with maternal instincts, teens who would never pass a driver’s test, and prisoners trapped in tempura batter. Manga really does have something for everyone!
