Welcome to Manga Machinations! Brought to you by members of /alltalkpodcast!

Seamus2389 & darfox8 join me in launching our new podcast where we talk about all things manga! We'll be discussing current running manga, doing retrospectives on classic series and authors, and doing a "let's read" for various popular series.

We'll be starting off by reading Billy Bat, a series with so much intrigue and mystery it gives "Lost" a run for it's money. Episode 1 covers chapters 1-15.

Sweet!

I've noticed when Seamus has been on (noticed it still with the most recent ep he was on), there's usually some weird delay. He's about a second or two ahead of everyone else. Might want to double-check the ep, I haven't listened to it yet.

Nope. Being Irish simply allows these nut-balls to distort the truth.

That shouldn't happen because of the way the episode was recorded. Infact I recall listening to this ep and it doesn't happen.
I stream games some times. Come and watch www.twitch.tv/darfox8 These are my Highlights.

Happens sometimes due to Irish lag. But other times it's just Seamus talking over us.

Also thanks to Higgins for giving us a shout out on CC!

I haven't finished watching naruto but you can't really blame sasuke for doing a 180 when he realizes that the hokage wasn't the one that ordered the hit on the Uchihas and I think the clan can forgive him for killing Danzo since he did do some despicable stuff. Like I wouldn't even call that a crime, I'd say that's Sasuke delivering justice.

I don't think I could read Sprite since I can't stand neet type characters.

This episode was recorded 3 weeks ago and I was specifically talking about chapters 690 & 691 for being INCREDIBLY cheesy.

The neet uncle is pretty funny but I mostly liked the concept of a group of people trying to outrun time.

It's not that I can't stand NEET-type characters. What I can't stand is the anime/manga-penchant for casually dismissing and even excusing/glamorizing what should be a very serious societal and mental-health issues.

I going to say alot of the time it's me talking over people cause I do that in actual conversations as well when I get anyway animated. I think next time I am going to have a note on the screen reminding myself to wait till someone finishes their sentence.

I'm shocked we haven't talked about the similarity in the iconography between Billy Bat and the Batman symbol. It's always in the back of my mind but I never bring it up. Maybe writing it here will remind me. Maybe that would be a reason why it would never get localized officially.

Well he IS a bat. It's going to look similar. Besides I identify Billy Bat more with the trench coat version anyway.

I was thinking about that reading the Bat village chapters with the bat symbol drawn beside the serial killers victims. There's a line in the The Dark Knight by Gordon where he says sometimes he turns it on to remind the criminals that they are being watched which is the same purpose in billy bay.

Also bay on moon and bat shone on clouds

Too bad we probably wont get some truly fucked up shit since it's Nintendo but hopefully this means he'll be forced to do some mind bending freaky things and not just gore. If they're all just a slightly sinister Pokemon looking at someone slightly vulnerable looking then boo.
