Shonen Flop

Oct 5, 2020

Bone Collection is set on a version of modern-day earth where people have to worry about regular attacks from yokai - a kind of Japanese spirit. Protecting humanity is exorcists, humans able to use spiritual energy and talismans. The main character is Jinai Kazami, an exorcist who is notable for having almost no spiritual energy. To make up for this he is able to use a forbidden technique which lets him team up with yokai by borrowing their power.

Shonen Flop is hosted by David Weinberger and Jordan Forbes, where each episode they look at a manga that ran in Weekly Shonen Jump that couldn't quite make it. Listen in to find out what the manga did wrong, what it did right, how the series could have turned itself around, and ultimately was it a flop or not.
