When a Cat Faces West and Reincarnated as a Sword

The White Sox went into last week needing a sweep of the Cleveland Guardians to win the season series and keep their playoff hopes realistic. They were swept, and then lost two more against the Tigers. Any playoff hopes are basically gone now. This is the team I like.

This episode, we’re talking about Yuki Urushibara’s When a Cat Faces West published by Kodansha as our older series. And Yuu Tanaka (story), Tomowo Maruyama (art), and Llo’s (character design) Reincarnated as a Sword.
