WO Examines: The Shonen Top 5

There is a lot of misgivings for some fans of anime that seem to perceive the more popular, more accessible shonen action anime as a down side to the anime industry; I go in depth to discuss the ever popular “Shonen Jump Big 3,” and why I feel that it needs to be expanded to include other titles, and what those titles mean for the anime industry.

While it can be argued that the popularity of such titles as Dragon Ball Z and Bleach are overblown anime for a select audience; it can’t be overlooked that these seemingly muscle-driven shows are a staple and backbone of the North American anime industry as a whole, and that without them, it might not be possible for some of those lesser known gems to emerge onto the anime scene here for our viewing pleasure.

I hope you enjoy the video. Please watch and subscribe. If you’d like feel free to comment, I always enjoy feedback.
