No Longer Human: Usamaru Furuya and Junji Ito

The Busan Lotte Giants are 5-0 baby!! Top of the KBO, the hometown team finally comes through. Can’t wait to be disappointed at some point this season.

This episode, I have a special guest, Chris (@gokuffy), talking about two adaptations of No Longer Human! The first is Usamaru Furuya’s, published by Vertical, then it’s Junji Ito’s, published by Viz.

The song you heard in this episode was “Human After All” by Daft Punk.

As always, you can find me on Twitter @ImpassionateK, and my co-hosts Helen (@WanderinDreamr) and Apryll (@manjiorin) on Twitter at those places in the parenthesis. You can find both of their writing at The Organization of Anti-Social Geniuses, more of Helen’s writing at Narrative Investigations, and my writing at the Fandom Post.

You can find our guest Chris on Twitter and at his YouTube channel, Cups of Knight Films.
