Welcome to Episode 11! We start off with News (1:05) where Zack talks about Yakuza 0 and XCOM2 (maybe instead of News this should be called Zack’s Video Games Corner?). Turns out he also watched Kulipari on Netflix.
Air goes on a rant (14:56) inspired by #ComicBookHour tweets which segues into a rant about yuri (23:20).
Then Zack gives you the Staring Into The Abyss With Osamu Tezuka segment (30:12). This week’s Tezuka is The Book of Human Insects.
It’s time for a HUGE New Release Tuesday! (45:22)
This one isn’t exactly a new release but it was new to me & I had to share.
Zack started out with news (1:34) talking about Soul Hunter and Reborn. Then he got into Sea Prince and the Fire Child (4:02) which then led to a discussion about Unico (6:40). Somehow talking about Active Raid (7:25) ended up being about Kurosawa films (11:10).
Zack introduces a new format/concept for his Lesser Known Classics segment (1:27:49). He presents a group of titles he refers to as “pleasant surprises” listed in the order we will watch (and talk about them). Next week is: LILY C.A.T.!
Future weeks are: Roujin Z, A Wind Named Amnesia, They Were Eleven, Giant Gorg, and finally Shura no Toki.
It’s a short New Release Tuesday (1:40:11)
Then it’s the big one: this week’s Shonen JUMP. We start out with Love Rush (1:41:11) then One Piece (1:45:12), Toriko (1:47:20), Food Wars (1:51:30), Black Clover (1:52:39), World Trigger (1:57:15), Promised Neverland (1:59:00), My Hero Academia (2:04:43) and finally…THE FINAL CHAPTER OF BLEACH (2:14:10).
We couldn’t resist talking about the Togashi/Kishimoto interview (2:30:55) and we wrap things up with a brief discussion of Air’s superpower (2:51:29).
