Manga Revolution Podcast Ep. 4: Azuki Launch and Batman & Joker Manga

Welcome back to the Manga Revolution Podcast. On this week’s episode, after catching up for a bit, Rokk and I go over the latest manga digital service Azuki that launches today, June 28th. For those that may not know Azuki is the new digital manga service that will be home to various manga from Kondansha publishing and Kaiten Books. We talk about what the service will be and what it means for the manga market in the United States. We then go on to talk about the Operation One Joker, a manga series that DC Comics teamed with Kodansha to publish in Japan, and its first volume release.

From there we go on to talk about the latest chapters of My Hero Academia, Kaiju No. 8, Dragon Ball Super, and Spy x Family that were released in June 2021. As always we dive into full spoiler discussion for the chapters
