On this episode of Life Lessons, Colton and Jon are back from Texas to not only pointlessly cover old Top 10 lists, but also cover Chapters 29 thru 31 of the manga. In which we are introduced to some very eccentric new characters. We also cover all three chapter titles in the usual Life Lessons segment, followed by a short Anime/Manga Comparison segment covering Episode 17 of the anime. After that, we have a surprise Email segment featuring a cameo by someone you’ve probably never heard of and then we round off. Topics during the episode include how Gintoki reacts to his past, what Takasugi’s real goals may be, and discussion on the “War 4” and their individual strengths in general. See you next time for Episode 25 of the podcast and enjoy!
On this episode of Life Lessons, we have hosts Colton, Jon and Jay, as they cover Chapter 28 of the manga. In which Otae’s anger over her panties being stolen isn’t the only thing explosive about the Odd Job gang’s hijinks. We also have a short Life Lessons segment covering the chapter title, “Oh Yeah! Our Crib is Number One!”, followed by an Anime/Manga Comparison of Episode 18 of the anime. Discussion points include the necessity of translating store signs in anime, Otae’s dialogue at the end of the chapter, and what it truly means to naked.
Colton and Jon will be taking a hiatus from the podcast, as they will be travelling to Dallas, Texas, and will start recording the next episode after October 19th. Next episode will include Chapters 29-31. That’s right another THREE MANGA RECAP episode!! So until then, be sure leave us a bunch of emails while we’re away at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or leave us a comment on Reddit!
On this episode of Life Lessons, Colton, Jon and Jay cover Chapters 26 and 27 of the manga. In which the Odd Jobs trio win a free trip to outer space and Gintoki reunites with an old friend. Discussion during the Manga Recap includes Sakamoto as a character, him compared to his other comrades, and just how much control he has over his company. This episode also includes a double Life Lessons segment and Anime/Manga Comparison of Episode 23, followed by 8 minutes of probably really annoying and dumb stuff. Enjoy!
On this episode of Life Lessons, its back to just Colton and Jasmine, as they cover Chapter 25 of the manga, in which the Odd Jobs meet again with Kimiko (Hammy) and take on another job request. A lot is discussed than one would think on this week’s manga recap, including Kimiko as a character and her supposed lifestyle, correlations between the Amanto and humans and even the complexity of speech. All of this, followed by another Life Lesson and Anime/Manga Comparison. Join us next time as we introduce the greatest space captain the world has ever seen! No, not Captain Katsuura. Enjoy!
On this episode of Life Lessons, Colton and Jon are joined once again by #1 fan of the podcast, Lia, as they cover Chapter 24 of the manga. In which, Catherine’s past comes back to haunt her. We also have both the usual Life Lessons and Anime/Manga Comparison segements. One of them only being exaggerated by a third. What’s not an exaggeration is that this episode is miraculously shorter than the previous!! Even so, enjoy the episode anyway!
On this episode of Life Lessons, Jasmine finally comes back to the podcast and joins Colton and Jon for a Manga Recap of Chapter 23, but not before she receives a few compliments. Afterwards, they have a very, overly profound Life Lessons segment. Followed by a very short Anime/Manga Comparison segment. Another short and simple episode, but we hope you enjoy it anyway!
