What is Friendship! Effort! Victory!? – It’s 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? – It’s about the entirety of 2012 in Weekly Shonen Jump, in which I do my best to summarise everything memorable that happened. I may skip over a bunch of anniversaries where I couldn’t think of anything to say, but by and large it’s all in here.

Where are the show notes? – Just down here.

-Another big ups to the Weekly Jump Reader’s Journal, whose archive of ToC listings was a great help to getting this episode done.
-You can learn more about Weekly Shonen Jump over at the wiki page for it, which is almost slightly reliable.
Friendship! Effort! Victory!’s on iTunes, where subscriptions and reviews are always most welcome.
-You can find me on Twitter @Maxy_Barnard where I usually just swear and be wrong about stuff
-You can also find me on Tumblr over at The Despondent, where there’s a Schedule of upcoming episodes & an irregular supply of things relevant to my interests
-You can also e-mail me at maxy dot barnard at gmail dot com with feedback or heartfelt hate
-As always the music used in this episode is from Jump Ultimate Stars. The intro is [INTO PLANET] and the outro, appropriately is ‘Loser’


One thought on “Friendship! Effort! Victory! Episode 07 – 2012 In Brief

  1. Disappointed that Magico got the axe, but I’m not getting Kiruko-san’s appeal. It’s fine but there’s something about it that stops me from loving it.
