Weekly Manga Recap

Weekly Manga Recap is a weekly podcast, hosted every Sunday by Chris "Rollo T" Larios and Nikolas "Y Ruler of Time" Freeman. The podcast has (as of August 31, 2011) been accepted as a part of the That Guy With The Glasses reel.

Weekly Manga Recap examines and analyses the latest chapters of various popular manga and offers opinion, insight and speculation into the developments. The show also takes suggestions from the chat and the forums for various manga they should take a look at, the thread for which can be found here. Oftentimes the podcast will not focus on a specific manga, instead going over an aspect of manga culture, or focusing on a question from the official Q&A thread and examining the finer points.

In addition, there is a thread on the forums where questions are taken to be answered on the show.

The title card shown on the stream is made either by Nellufy or Alexanderarts. The title cards shown on TGWTG are made by Steveman.
