What is Weekly Manga Recap?

Contrary to the name, Weekly Manga Recap is a weekly podcast that recaps the most recent manga titles. Oh wait, actually, I guess the name is right on the nose.

The podcast is hosted by Nik "Nik of Time" Freeman and Chris "Rollo T" Larios, and is a regular look at the biggest titles in manga such as One Piece, Bleach, World Trigger, Fairy Tail, Naruto, and a whole lot more. We go through the newest chapters, provide our thoughts, make wild predictions, and usually keep things light with a lot of silly humor.

We also take recommendations from our audience for new series to try out that we then read and discuss the show. Consider it a "manga bookclub" of sorts as we look to expand our own knowledge of the medium while providing you with suggestions for titles you may have otherwise never hear about.

What is this crowd-funding campaign for?


Recording Weekly Manga Recap is always blast, but it can be a time-consuming and expensive at times. We have an awesome audience who has made clear mention of their desire to support, so this campaign is an avenue for our listeners to directly help out the show in a monetary manner.

We want to help increase the content we can provide, but doing so costs money. And as the honorable Wu-Tang Clan taught us, cash rules everything around me (C.R.E.A.M.! Dolla-dolla bill, ya'll!)

Anything else I should know?


Did you know that originally, the Snuffaluffagus was an imaginary friend that only Big Bird could see? Eventually PBS changed it because they didn't want kids to feel afraid that their parents wouldn't believe them if they told them they were being abused. This has nothing to do with the podcast, but I found it fascinating when I first heard about that
Tiers
Rookie Patrons
$1 or more per month
All new supporters will receive a special shout-out on the next episode of WMR as thanks. For just $0.03 a day, you can hear Chris mispronounce your name or online handle live! Usually you have to send in fan mail to get that!
Champion Patrons
$5 or more per month
In addition to the Rookie perk, Champions will receive access to an exclusive monthly podcast that can't be viewed anywhere else! Unless someone puts it up on torrents. But that'd make them a rude asshole…
Ultimate Patrons
$10 or more per month
In addition to Rookie and Champion perks, Ultimates will receive access to weekly notes from the hosts regarding the week's series, and access to any scripts that may be used for bonus pods or other extra material. It's a peek behind the curtain to see just how often we reference 2000's kid cartoons!
Goals
$855 of $900 per month
Currently Weekly Manga Recap focuses mostly on the weekly chapters of most Jumps series. Outside of Fairy Tail we don't have a regular addition to the recap that isn't in WSJ, and perhaps it's time to change that. Although we still implore you to get a Jump subscription.

At this goal, we'll increase the number of series we discuss regularly to include new titles on a permanent basis. Both of us will read through the series to catch up, do a regular episode recommendation on the series, and then add it to our rotation following that. Which series we pick will be determined by audience interest once the goal is met. We'd likely add two new series to the recap, though we may do three if the majority of them are monthly. And Fairy Tail's seventeen spin-offs don't count!
