NJPW just came back with the New Japan Cup, and I have been really enjoying this… AEW has been around all this time, but seeing these new wrestlers in a country that at least takes regular illness seriously by wearing masks when you go out makes it feel different (in a good way) than AEW putting on shows in Jacksonville, which does not seem safe. It could be equally unsafe, but who knows. The Sho v. Takagi match was incredible.
This episode, we’re talking about Osamu Tezuka’s Buddha published by Vertical, and Paru Itagaki’s Beastars published by Viz.
The songs you heard in the episode were “Wild side” by ALI and “Le zoo” by YURiKA, both from the Beastars.
As always, you can find me on Twitter @ImpassionateK, and my co-hosts Helen (@WanderinDreamr) and Apryll (@manjiorin) on Twitter at those places in the parenthesis. You can find both of their writing at The Organization of Anti-Social Geniuses, more of Helen’s writing at Narrative Investigations, and my writing at the Fandom Post.
