I like the unprofessionalism of this podcast. It separated itself from other podcasts that just read scripts. It gives it more character. And the questions asking about all the series, of the current Japan jump series, I would like to see my hero academy. It's pretty popular in Japan. It'll be a cool one to have, also it's the same author as barrage, which in surprised that wasn't an immediate choice for y'all

Them being hesitant about My Hero Academia doesn't surprise me at all. Barrage was an amazing series and (as far as I know) was popular here. It lasted 16 chapters in Japan. Its is smart from a business standpoint to be apprehensive of an author with two series that flopped under his belt. Hopefully they'll pick it up later on, since it seems pretty clear that it won't be getting cancelled any time soon (hopefully). I didn't think they'd ever pick up Food Wars, but here we are now. Now I just need Assassination Classroom and I'll have all the mainstays I like in the magazine.

Great Podcast everybody, loved last weeks as well. It's good to be getting another Jump Start, though sad as Naruto ended...

Regarding a new series, it would be awesome for English WSJ to bring over My Hero Academy!! Excellent things are being said around the water cooler about this series, but sadly I and many other fans are unable to experience it yet. We would love for you all to give this a chance, and it would be exciting to read this author's work again.

On another note, I picked up the second One Piece box set. Twenty-three volumes plus Chapter 0, I couldn't ask for a better deal!

Thank you for taking my comments into consideration.

I liked how casual the podcast usually is. Especially that Naruto one, it was so passionate and the discussion didn't strike me as bad? Also is Jason Thompson going to come back on the podcast?
