Episode 31: Cartoons, or manga in color & motion

Episode 31

Angela and Kelly are talking about cartoons–the Saturday morning kind, and the late night anime kind. She-Ra, Marvel Rising, ThunderCats Roar, and Voltron (let’s not get into it) are all on the table. Why is western animation still struggling to find an audience outside 6 year olds? What comes first, the manga or the anime? And why does Angela have to wait so long for a new season of Haikyu!!?
