Cubone&NatutrainerLannisterfan ,

Sound familiar to anyone?

I encountered a manga a few years ago and I for the life of me can’t remember what it was called. All I remember is that it’s not a new one but it was about these ninken clans that fought each other (?). I know that the main dog was taking his fathers place and he was in command of groups of dogs. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

Great show!

Best show I found this year, hands down. If you speak English and love manga this is the pod for you. Awesome compliment of hosts. Good production value. Thank you all for the knowledge!

Draymora ,

A good listen in on current manga/anime news & classics

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 seems majority of the series discussed are shonen rather than shojo/josei or seinen. Though there are some sprinkled in here or there. Overall is solid all around and will definitely have to listen to more of their backlog in the future.
Everyone should give the podcast a try!
