Emma Dreams of Stars and Kaiju No. 8

I’ve been trying to follow hockey more, and it is regrettable that the Los Angeles Kings are lame and the Chicago team is both racist and a hot mess off the ice. The Chicago thing happened after I made the decision on a team, and that team is the Seattle Kraken. I regret to inform the rabid fans of my sports updates before podcast notes that this team is not good, but I love them.

This episode, we’re talking about Emmanuelle Maisonneuve (story), Julia Pavlowitch (story), and Kan Takahama’s (art) Emma Dreams of Stars published by Vertical and Kodansha. Then we talk about Naoya Matsumoto” Kaiju No. 8 published by Viz.

(New year, new show notes. I’m going to be adding in-book [or in the case of Kaiju No. 8 and anything else like that, whatever they put in the Jump digital publication] credits here.)

The song you heard in this episode is “A Taste of Honey” by The Beatles.

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.

We mentioned a Michelin star restaurant review thread, but I also found out that she did a formal write up on The Everywhereist as well.
