This week's Shonen Jump Manga is Beast Children, the tale of Sakura Shishigaya, a highschool freshman with dreams of playing rugby after being inspired by professional player Onotora Ikki. Sakura is determined to play, despite his small size, and we follow his growth as both a player and as a person. He’s committed to being a great rugby player and take on his rival, Yukito Ikki, son of Onotora.

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.
