Shonen Flop

Oct 19, 2020

Mitama Security: Spirit Busters is a gag manga about Rena Haze, a teenage girl who’s haunted by over 100 spirits. To manage these spirits, she’s protected by Joh Mitama, a member of Secureity (a pun on rei which means spirit). Joh, however, is afraid of ghosts and as such is very ineffective at his role. Lucky for them, it turns out the spirits are mostly harmless and actually quite beneficial. As such the series follows their day-by-day ghost-related hijinks such as basketball, cooking, and even going on dates.

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.
