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 Naoshi Komi, an up-and-coming manga creator for Weekly Shonen Jump, responsible for the smash hit Nisekoi and the cult fantasy series Double Arts(see the episodes surrounding this one), with an eye towards explaining every single one-shot he’s ever done. It’s expository!
Where are the show notes? – I don’t have anything witty to put here!
-If you want to know more about Naoshi Komi, check out his wiki, and then pop over to Manga Updates to have a little gander at what his works looked like. Obviously I’m not saying you should then use that knowledge to obtain them illicitly, as Manga Updates doesn’t host pirated manga itself and I try to be decent with this podcast, and trust you know what’s best.
-There was going to be a gallery for this episode, but I’m stumped if I can’t figure out how to find images untarnished by the cruel hands of fan-translators, so I’m afraid you get nothing, at least for now. We’ll see.
–THE MARCH SCHEDULE HAS BEEN UNLEASHED! FEAST YOUR EYES.
-You can learn more about Weekly Shonen Jump over at the wiki page for it, which is almost slightly reliable.
