This episode is the second part of the Beyond Konoha mini series; in this mini-sode, I look at another one of Masashi Kishimoto’s terminated serializations, (which was published as a one-shot manga in May 2013 in Jump Square Magazine) Mario. Within this episode, I focus on how Kishimoto’s work managed to evolve (post-Karakuri), how Mario is made for an exciting reading experience, why I believe this manga was a missed opportunity for a seinen magazine and more.

This podcast episode, as well as this mini-series, in no way represents Masashi Kishimoto – these are all my thoughts & opinions of his work.

THIS EPISODE CONTAINS ‘SPOILERS’ (FOR THE 47 PAGE ONE-SHOT MANGA)
