We're back on the sports anime / manga bandwagon, and this time we're talking about Kodansha USA's Welcome to the Ballroom by Tomo Takeuchi! We're also starting a very exciting new segment covering the filmography of Akira Kurosawa, starting with his first movie, Sanshiro Sugata, and the follow up, Sanshiro Sugata Part Two. Show notes: 0:30 - We begin and talk about Sanshiro Sugata! 37:50 - We talk Welcome to the Ballroom! Next time is March Comes in Like a Lion, probably!
