Episode 4 - Sake and Manga (WAZ in Japan!)

July 16th, 2018


Who makes more money - western comic artists or japanese mangaka?
Are maid cafes as unsettling as you think they are?
And, more importantly, can turtles experience romance?

Bry and Claire ask all these questions (and actually answer some of them!) and more as they discuss their adventure in Japan! We look at manga, anime and nerd culture compared to our experiences in the west, reflect on gender marketing in comics and manga, and make some startling discoveries in an erotic doujinshi (self-published comics) shop.
