Shonen Flop


Jun 29, 2020

Robot x Laserbeam is the tale of socially-awkward highschooler Roboto “Robot” Hatohara. While initially resistant to joining his high school’s golf team, it’s discovered that Robot has the uncanny ability to hit golf balls perfectly straight - his “laserbeam”. After a heated match against one of the best amateur players, Miura Youzan, Robot becomes inspired to continue their rivalry and become a professional player himself.

Show Notes:

We also want to give a special thanks to Adi Ravi for his help in explaining golf.

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.
