YOu guys should get Luffy's VA next! great podcast. Can we get the Hiroshi Shiibashi one-shot next?

Are you referring to the oneshot that's in Jump NEXT? If so, I agree, because it's nice and short. 19 pages, or so.

I think it's the one he had in Weekly Jump a while back. I remember you guys talking about in the comment section but I can't remember what issue. I'm fine with either one though. Also, where can I read the one you're referring to?

Submitted by yafada on Mon, 07/28/2014 - 23:07

Ah, didn't realize he had another one.

Actually, I don't think the one in NEXT is a oneshot, but a series based on this

I can't really tell by skimming it.

Sadly, it's only available in Jump NEXT for the time being. I bought it through Kinokuniya.
I'll let you know if Jump posts it on their website, sometimes they'll have some manga samplers up in the jumpbookstore.

Or if you'd be willing to spend some money to buy the Japanese magazine, I could tell you how to get it through Kinokuniya.

How much does it cost and do I need a credit card to make an account?
Also I don't know how to read Kanji.

Can you read hiragana and katakana? Jump NEXT and just about all shonen magazines have furigana, that's the little hiragana above the kanji that tell you the proper way to read it. All the manga have it, but some of the ads won't have furigana.

To make an account on the Kinokuniya site, you do need a CC. But technically, you won't need to make an account on their site to get a manga magazine. To order a manga magazine, you'll need a CC, and you'll need to place the order through the phone. Manga anthologies generally are not available through the site.

Phone number is at the bottom.

Magazine itself was like $7 or so, and shipping is a flat rate of $8. So it would be around $15 if you just ordered Jump NEXT. It ships through USPS priority. If you think $15 is a lot, you'd probably pay like, $40 on Amazon Japan or CDJapan because of international shipping rates. Note that you can order just about as many manga magazines as you want and it will still be $8 for shipping from Kinokuniya. My shipment was 11 lb the other day, according to the invoice.

No,I cannot.
So basically, I just go to website and give them a place to order it to and payment? I can do that. Mostly...

I know this is not under your jurisdiction, but could you guys please license Tokyo Ghoul. Also could you license Embalming: The Another Tale of Frankenstein by Nobuhiro Watsuki.

Awesome podcast, it was nice to hear Junko Takeuchi in the podcasts. I hope we get more voice actors in the future.

Junko Takeuchi is pretty amazing to switch between her normal voice and Naruto's voice so seamlessly! Also in case you didn't read my comment in the previous podcast I said that in the World Trigger ranking system Andy should be part of the board room rather than a ranked agent. It would be the perfect role for him.

Great personal news! My dad is out of the hospital and recovering at home now! Thank you to the whole Shonen Jump crew for your well wishes!

Pretty sure Andy already considers himself the Shinoda of Viz.

hey guys. how have ya'll been. well anyway.I was just finished Nura: rise of the yokai clan. and the ending was amazing. but there were some questions left unanswered. like, how was the village of half yokai and how did Rikuo recover from the final battle with Nue? Who does Rikuo end up with, Kana or Tsurara? and if he does end up with Tsurara, does Hagaromo Getsune's curse still affect Rikuo (meaning that Rikuo and Tsurara wouldn't be able to have kids)? and lastly if Rikuo and Kana end up together would their kids be a 3rd yokai or completely human or some other percent. I just kindof wanna hear what ya'll think.

sorry for the long question. have an awesome day and more awesome podcast
