It's not a place you want to fall into.

Jumpcast: Dattebayo

Believe it?

It's Golden Week, so with a week off, it's finally time for the much-delayed Jumpcast Naruto Retrospective.  We first, however, cover the news of Dragonball returning to anime, then leap into a long, unstructured discussion of our favorite Naruto moments, everything we feel didn't work, everything we feel did, and everything in between.

We'll be back next week with our regular set, but until then, walk down memory lane with the third retrospective episode we've ever done.

Jumpcast 162: Framed

And it's all falling apart!

It's Jumpcast 162!  This week, we discuss the inconsistency in Bleach's art, Naruto Gaiden, the shocking aspects of cooking slightly differently, the follow-up to the worst Nisekoi ever, and manga you shouldn't be reading in front of other people.

  • Shokugeki no Soma (28:21)

Jumpcast 161: The Worst Nisekoi Ever

That is not hyperbole.

It's Jumpcast 161!  This week, we for some reason discuss lapsed Star Wars fandom (and how The Phantom Menace being bad may have spurred us on to anime), whether Goku was a bad pseudo-person, have it out over Code Geass, and talk about the worst Nisekoi ever.

  • Shokugeki no Soma (13:18)
  • Assassination Classroom (29:17)
  • My Hero Academia (41:00)
  • Nisekoi (51:00)

Jumpcast 160: Unsubtle

Oh, hey, this isn't terrible clearly enough yet.  Let's fix it.

It's Jumpcast 160!  This week, we talk about Shokugeki no Soma's anime, discuss the naming scheme of Dragonball Z's newest power up, sort out the logic of building a mall around a giant tree, and more!

Jumpcast 159: Flustering Around

It can be dangerous if done improperly.

It's Jumpcast 159!  This week, we talk about a superpowered chair, the mathematical breakdown of how much it costs to rig a Shonen Jump poll, expositional carpet bombing, and more.
