Friendship! Effort! Victory! Episode 20 – Double Arts

This one’s late because it turns out comics are complicated sometimes!
The second cover Double Arts graced, from back in 2008


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? – Naoshi Komi’s short-lived cult fantasy title Double Arts, and how it was good, bad, delightful, flawed, and really super difficult to talk about.

Where are the show notes? – Holding your hand? I dunno, I got nothing

-Want to get your hands on Double Arts in the original Japanese editions? Check out Amazon, where you can try and get print editions from sellers, or failing that, get it for your kindle if your kindle is Japanese I guess. I don’t really know how that goes. RESEARCH.
-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 if you’d like.
-As always the music used in this episode is from Jump Ultimate Stars. The intro is [INTO PLANET] and the outro, appropriately is ‘Loser’
