Jump’s best series gets gushed about by a Jump fan with a mild cold
What is Black Clover?: Black Clover is the sophomore title of one Yuki Tabata, serialised in Weekly Shonen Jump from 2015 to the present day. It tells the story of a young orphan boy without any magical ability, Asta, as he aims to become the Wizard King. It’s also my absolute favourite Weekly Shonen Jump series currently running in the magazine, so here’s me gushing about it for 40 minutes.
What is Friendship! Effort! Victory!: Friendship! Effort! Victory! (or FEV for short) is a podcast about the various titles in Weekly Shonen Jump’s 50+ year history. It used to exist about half a decade ago, and it exists again now, with new episodes coming out on the second and fourth fridays of every month.
