Thanks for listening and we hope to see you next week!

Episode 4: The End of a False Love

This week we talk about…

Latest news and our Weekend Update (:33). Zack watched some Ghostbusters cartoons and played Overwatch. Air watched House of Five Leaves and is excited about the new season of Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju.

We “jump into JUMP” (14:00) and talk about Gintama (of course) as well as the latest Boruto, the winding-down of Bleach, the monthly installment of Blue Exorcist, and the final chapter of Nisekoi. Zack loves My Hero Academia and Air really doesn’t love Seraph of the End. Somehow we also spend a lot of time talking about things that aren’t actually in JUMP…like REBORN!.

Air talks about a couple of manga available on the Crunchyroll Manga app. (1:28:25) Princess Jellyfish is heating up and Nanbaka is looking promising as anime material.

New Release Tuesday (1:29:55)

Then we delve into Zack’s Lesser Known Classics (1:35:33). His enthusiasm for The Dagger of Kamui ultimately outweighed his urge to puke and/or sleep.

That’s it! We wrap things up at 1:54:00. Thanks for listening!
