Delinquents. Spirits. Endless rumours.
What is Friendship! Effort! Victory!? – A podcast about the manga and inner workings of Weekly Shonen Jump, with an eye towards accessibility and soothing camp tones.
What is this episode about? – Yoshihiro Togashi’s Yu Yu Hakusho, mostly, with a look at what happened in it, the darkness of the ‘Chapter Black’ storyline, and the rumours relating to its demise. Also a bit of an explanation of how editors work with their creators.
Where are the show notes? – Just below this sentence!
-You can learn more about Yoshihiro Togashi and Yu Yu Hakusho over at these two wikipedia links (1)(2)
-All talk of rumours and such are far more spread out than in the previous episode, but the notably factual and entirely scintillating Yoshi-Rin De Pon doujinshi can be found HERE and HERE (with credit to Alicia and her tumblr page, natch)
-As before, you can find out a little bit more about Weekly Shonen Jump over at the wikipedia page, at least until a deeply archived and more detailed history can be recovered from an old livejournal site.
-Yu Yu Hakusho can be bought from any bookstore you can find it in, though my suspicions in the episode are confirmed and early volumes are very much out of print! Still, they’re obtainable at wildly varying prices from Amazon’s marketplace and other online sources (UK) (US) (CA)
-THE PODCAST IS STILL VERY MUCH ON ITUNES, SUBSCRIBE AND REVIEW IF IT TICKLES YOUR FANCY
-Did you know I’m sometimes incredibly wrong? In the episode I make the mistake of saying Dragon Ball ended *before* Yu Yu Hakusho. In reality, it ended ELEVEN MONTHS AFTER IT. Still, one huge error out of all those solid gold other things I say? I’m doing all right so far.
