Episode 40 – Daggers of Snark

16 Nov


On this episode of Life Lessons, Colton is joined by Josh Dunham of the Senpai Coast to Coast podcast to recap Chapter 55 of the manga, in which Katsura meets fan-favorite ramen shop owner, Ikumatsu! Afterwards, we learn of the competitive nature of ramen shops during the Life Lessons segment, followed by a divisive Anime/Manga Comparison segment on Episode 39 of the anime. Topics of discussion this episode include the handling of Ikumatsu’s character in both the manga and anime, Josh’s opinions of the first three pages of the chapter, and why Colton and Josh keeping throwing in-jokes all over the place!

Special thanks to @joyofthejoui on Twitter for her insightful comments on this episode’s life lesson!
