Manga has always been a platform for teaching its readers life lessons. Whether it’s believing in ourselves or learning how to fall in love, there’s something hiding between the lines. This episode, Colton and Jd look at two recent manga, Gintama and World Trigger, and the life lessons they bring to their audiences. Jd digs up some scrolls from Japanese art history to relate Gintama while Colton picks apart the pros and cons of World Trigger.
