What is Friendship! Effort! Victory! – It’s a podcast examining the ongoing history of Shueisha’s 45-year old comics anthology Weekly Shonen Jump, and the hundreds of titles it has published over that period of time, placing each of them under the spotlight and looking at what they were, what happened, what they meant, and so on.

What is Dois Sol? – Dois Sol is portugese, translating roughly to “Two Sun”. Oh, and it’s also a sports comic by Katsutoshi Murase, following teen football coach Hiromasa Nonaga and the hyper-talented football savant Kappo Sakamichi as they try to bring their football team to new heights, facing off against reluctant team-mates, old enemies and new challenges on their journey to be the best.
