    New Chapter Chatter - June 2020

    We go a bit long again this week, but hey, there's a ton to talk about. Moriking and Chainsaw Man continue to be high quality while Time Paradox Ghostwriter...does not. Also of note are our parting thoughts on The Promised Neverland, why we could never do sponcon, and how the latest new batch of Jump series is shaping up. We share our queerpinions on:Act-Age chapters 114-118Chainsaw Man chapters 71-75Moriking chapters 6-10My Hero Academia chapters 273-276The Promised Neverland chapters 179-181Spy x Family chapters 27.1-29Time Paradox Ghostwriter chapters 3-7You can find all our episodes on Spotify, Podcast Addict, and Apple Podcasts!Spoiler and content warning: We’re a fairly NSFW-podcast that uses reclaimed homophobic slurs. We also spoil the hell out of all the series mentioned above. Content-wise they (and our discussions of them) touch on physical violence, blood, gore, and sexual objectification of women and girls.
