Is the writing in this manga as sharp as a katana?
David and Jordan give their first thoughts on the Shonen Jump manga Zan. Listen in as they give an overview of the first chapter, where they think it will go from there, and ultimately their “power word” to describe the series so far. They also dive into some listener questions.
A samurai manga about a boy named Zan. Zan's father was a legendary swordsman who used a sword which had no blade (think Sakabatou from Ruroken). Zan's father died one day, and ever since, Zan has wanted to follow in his fathers footsteps.
The manga starts off with Zan being transferred to a new high school in his second year. When pushed, Zan somehow becomes super strong and has incredible sword technique that allows him to beat his enemies.
