Manga Fights EP. 04 – “JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure (feat: Maxy Barnard)”

It’s time for another episode of All-Comic Presents: Manga Mavericks Presents: Manga Fights sponsored by Geoff Martin Art Sales (not really)! Operating in the same fashion as Screen Junkies’ Movie Fights, Manga Fights features passionate manga fans debating it out over manga-related several topics both intriguing and insane. With the Manga Mavericks as your hosts, intelligent conversations, heated arguments, and unintentional comedy is always sure to abound!

JoJo’s month continues today with our JJBA-focused Manga Fight! In our first ever face-off between guests, Maxy Barnard of Friendship! Effort! Victory! returns to battle it out with recurring guest and JoJo’s superfan VlordGTZ. The resulting fight proves as bizarre as the series as the boys argue make comparisons between Yoshikage Kira and Prince, chastise Maxy for being an unpatriotic brit, argue whether Foo Fighters is a better band than Sex Pistols, debate whether Lucy Steel being impregnated with the head of Jesus Christ is weirder than Jolyne getting turned on by sexually reproducing snails, and confirm that the true villain of part 8 will be that ugly looking dog Maxy hates! This is also the first Speed Round that incorporates actual listener questions as debate topics! What could possibly go wrong?
