    Hey, another Great podcast, kudo’s as always.

    I think it’s pretty clear how much Naruto has improved recently, since the mini flashback arc on the night Naruto was born, it’s just been awesome.

    Almost half way through the One Piece Break now and I just can’t wait… aswell as many other people for obvious reasons. That leads to my next question, Who do you think the next Straw Hat member will be?
    I am putting my bet on Perona, seeing as she is with Zoro at the moment should could laze around on the island or find someway to be able to train her own abilities – like Zoro will be doing.

    Hitman Reborn has pretty much lost it, the art is just terrible now and the story is dull and boring, ugh.

    Oh also, a fairly new Shonen series you could add, Oumagadoki Doubutsuen.
    It started in SWJ the week after SWOT and so far is a little behind in Scanlations, but is catching up. So far it’s brilliant with so much potential for a unique comedy. The new Gintama.

    Anyways, looking forward to your new podcast. Hopefully you all won’t despise Bleach as much as you all do. :P

      Hello Samuel. Thanks for listening!

      Interesting question; we will address who we think the next crew member will be on the next episode.

      I have to agree on both Naruto and Reborn. As for Oumagadoki Doubutsuen, we definitely have our eye on it, but we try to keep our show focused on series that are “current” (meaning, their scans are up-to-date with their Japanese releases, or no more than a week old), because if we just talked about whatever the scanlators were able to release that week, the show would be less consistent. Red Hawk Scans are currently over a month behind on the series, so we haven’t thought to add Oumagadoki yet, but we certainly hope that we get the chance to talk about it soon, just as we do with many other series we’d love to see brought up to speed.

      The only promise I can make regarding Bleach is that we will approach every chapter with an open mind and review each fairly. We’re not out to dislike anything!

      Again, thank you for listening, and thanks very much for your comment.
