  • Great Manga Podcast

    I first found out about this podcast through the Parasyte retrospective. Parasyte was the first manga I ever read and I had watched few anime up until that point, so I knew little about manga. I liked the Parasyte retrospective, so I kept reading the manga that already retrospectives. I'm glad I did, because this podcast has introduced me to manga that I would have never known about and found to love. I love the entire crew and their personalities. Everybody has their own different interests in ... more

All I remember is that it’s not a new one but it was about these ninken clans that fought each other (?). I know that the main dog was taking his fathers place and he was in command of groups of dogs. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

  • good even for picky fans

    Though I'm the pretentious sort of comics fan, Manga Machnications has actually made an impact on what I read. Their episodes are informative and cover a lot of bases because of the different tastes of each member... Which has led me to manga like Chainsaw Man. I wouldn't have given it a shot from their premise alone. On a lesser note, something I endlessly appreicate is how Manga Mac discusses sensitive topics and tropes in a reasonable way. I highly recommend them to every comic/manga fan.... more
