What the Font?! – A Manga Guide to Western Typeface and Wandering Witch: The Journey of Elaina

I’ve decided I’m a Real Madrid fan now, mostly arbitrarily behind them beating City in the semifinals of the Champions League. But also Benzema is very fun to watch, and Rudiger, a Chelsea favorite, is about to go there. So here I am.

This episode, we’re talking about Kuniichi Ashiya’s What the Font?! – A Manga Guide to Western Typeface published by Seven Seas. Then Jougi Shiraishi (story), Itsuki Nanao (art), and Azura’s (character design) Wandering Witch: The Journey of Elaina, published by Square Enix.
