108: Turtles All The Way Up (Tower of God)

The manga revolution may be in for a revolution as the Aniki brothers climb a deadly gauntlet with the adaptation of the Korean manwa Tower of God.

While a shounen at heart, this is a unique spin on the genre with amazing animation and fantastic music. Also featuring: mahjong rants and some other manga reviews.
