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 Takehiko Inoue’s debut work Chameleon Jail, the tale of a strangely named guy who can use the power of miniature explosions to change his face. That’s… Sensible. It’s a proper 80s series, so there’s a lot of odd things to observe.

Where are the Show Notes? – They were in disguise all along!
