Shonen Flop


Dec 28, 2020

Before Kohei Horikoshi created My Hero Academia, he had a lesser-known series - Barrage. Barrage is set in Industria, a planet that after the integration of aliens has become overrun with crime. It is the tale of Astro, a street kid who ends up swapping places with the current prince (who looks just like him) so the prince can try and live a normal life. His first duty as a royal is for him, and his guard Tiamat, to journey across the land to bring peace by defeating evil doers. Tune in as we, and our special guest musician Dan Harrison discuss.

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.
