On this episode we have our cool returning guest Kimono Joe on to help tackle one of the most polarized discussions in geek culture worldwide comic industry
JAPANESE MANGA Vs WESTERN COMICS……..FIGHT!!
Inspiration from many current emails / blogs and entertainment events made us want to discuss, analyze and debate the core aspects of this argument from both sides of the field.
To do this properly (In the tyro sense of things mind you) we break our discussion down into the following elements
How we got into comics / manga – our current experience
A brief summary of the birth modern comic / manga (post 1930’s)
Comic / Manga Character Analysis
Comic / Manga Writing / Storytelling Analysis
Differences between the Comic / Manga Business Model
Thoughts on Comic / Manga Illustration / Animation Quality
Here are some of the interesting documentary titles about comics and manga which come directly from the professional industry.
Sadly the mentioned comic docs are still in post-production but from what you see on their project pages they both look VERY illuminating and interesting

And because just that much podcasting took over 2 HOURS we have decided to split this episode into two parts as we still got plenty of listener email / hot topics and Joe’s EPIC COMIC RECOMMENDATION LIST
TO BE CONTINUED……
Today’s returning guest is our good friend Angel and on this episode we are going to have a casual observational discussion on the longest and oldest running anime trends in Japan
For some of you this may sound like an episode where we tread the same old waters and discuss the most obvious of franchises….however you may be surprised to find there are more than a few shows that have never even passed Japanese borders and are more of a domestic hit than a more aware international one.
So with the help of Wikipedia and some sorting arrangements we take a somewhat brief look at the following lists……..take a look yourself folks it’s actually somewhat Intriguing
*Apologies for shaky audio quality at various points btw, technical difficulties were rampant for some reason!*
LIST OF LONGEST RUNNING MANGA TITLES (We didn’t get around to this sadly)
LIST OF LONGEST RUNNING TV SHOWS: WORLDWIDE (off-topic but interesting)
Familiar Titles Discussed:-
Unfamiliar Titles Discussed - which are actually the longest trending Anime Series
1. Sazae-san - 6197+ Episodes
2. Nintama Rantarō (Ninja Boy Rantaro) 1773+ Episodes
3. Ojarumaru (Prince Mackaroo) 1388+ Episodes
4. Soreike! Anpanman 1170+ Episodes
5. Chibi Maruko-chan 918+ Episodes
Before we end the podcast we do actually touch on the fact that in the western world having cartoon series trend for a long amount of time / episodes is not the norm. It seems like a much more character / franchise reboot model depending on how ratings go for an active series. Low ratings = show cancellation which usually sprouts room for a new “similar” project or a re-imagined series which may be more successful ala switching Young Justice for Teen Titans Go! / Beware the Batman.
It’s actually funny a detailed talk on Pokemon isn’t here.....however we actually did have a discussion on that BEAST franchise…sadly it was before we started recording so we forgot to bring it up again but of course the details are....
Pokemon has been running for 17 straight seasons totalling in a whopping 800+ episodes excluding movies, side stories, OVA’s etc actually making it the third longest running anime TV series that runs for over 20 mins an episode….and I would not be surprised at all if this eventually becomes the longest running anime series of all time in future
But yeah sorry Pokemon we do clearly recognize your MEGA status….forgive us! :oP
