Hit the JUMP (get it!?) to join Shane as he talks about some of these odd predicaments and offers "helpful" suggestions on how to combat them!
It's not uncommon for different anime and manga to bear huge similarities to each other, but what about when a series of films from almost forty years ago possess an uncanny amount of tropes we've seen before in shonen titles?
