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 if they’re actually worth reading.

What is Medaka Box? – It’s a weird, satirical comic that examines and rips into shonen demographic comics as a whole, whilst also telling the rip-roaringly entertaining story of  Medaka Kurokami, a crazy-talented girl, and her various allies and enemies in her school’s student council. It’s never quite what you think.
