Yes, this is yet another news-only episode, but nevermind that – WORLD TRIGGER IS COMING BACK!!! After two long years, it’s finally returning to the pages of Weekly Shonen Jump on October 29th. You can catch yourselves up on the series before it returns by reading through the entirety of the B-Rank Wars arc (over 80 chapters – more than half the series!) on Viz.com until October 31st! For an even deeper refresher, you can also listen to the lengthy World Trigger podcasts we did earlier this year!

But as much as we want to gush about World Trigger’s return, we’ve got other news to discuss as well, including Kazuki Takahashi’s new series for Weekly Shonen Jump, new digital licenses by Media Do and Kodansha, and MHA: Two Heroes’ final box-office tally among other recent news highlights on this episode of the show! Speaking of MHA: Two Heroes, our review of the film with Maxy Barnard should be out later this week, alongside a few other podcasts hinted in this episode! What could those podcast be, you ask? You’ve got to listen to find out!
