A manga discussion podcast focusing on shojo (and josei!) series that make your heart go doki-doki. Covering classics like CLAMP’s “Cardcaptor Sakura” and Yuu Watase’s “Fushigi Yuugi” to newer favorites like Kazune Kawahara’s “My Love Story!!” and Hiro Fujiwara’s “Maid Sama!”

Shojo & Tell host Ashley McDonnell discusses one series per episode with a rotating shojo superfan. (And sometimes, a shoujo superfan.)

Shojo [or shoujo] manga: Japanese comics made for young women. A breath of fresh air after reading 72 volumes of “Naruto.” The underappreciated sibling of all those same-y never-ending shonen titles.

Awesome and Fun Listen

I came across this podcast late last year and I’m so glad I did! Ashley has such amazing personality and keeps things interesting each episode; along with great variety of guest. Thanks to this podcast I have from new Shojo titles to read. This is a podcast I highly recommend.

Detailed and enjoyable podcast

I really enjoyed the episode of Banana Fish. I’ve been watching the anime and was excited to find a podcast discussing the manga and anime. Both hosts were knowledgeable about the series and it was enjoyable to listen to it in its entirety. The discussion about the art style and differences between the show and manga (I haven’t read the manga) were also things that I found interesting to hear

It put a smile on my face to hear the best Ash and Eiji moments from both hosts. Time for the second part!

So much fun!

The host and guest hosts are enthusiastic about shojo and their faovrite series, which makes it a joy to listen to. I've found that a lot of manga/anime podcasts can overlook the shojo genre, so it's great to have a show highlighting these works in particular. And it's led to me buying a bunch of new series to try out, too!
