This was a really fun panel to watch and I’m so happy that Kodansha Comics made it available on their YouTube channel. The “showdown” was really just an expansive list of different series across different genres to check out. I throughly enjoyed seeing some of the picks and added a few to my reading list in the process. One thing to note is that the audio isn’t perfect, but you can at least understand what people are saying. Definitely check it out if you are looking for some new series to add to your reading lists.
