I came of age in the ’90s, which means, yeah, I read a fair amount of manga. One of my favorites was always Adam Warren’s take on “the Dirty Pair” a sci-fi book that was ages ahead of the curve by decades in ideas, tech, and even the rise of horrible fan-types. It’s about 2 young government workers who are sent to help citizens, but are a bit accident prone so wherever they show up hijinks ensue. Self assured women whose work entertains? Seems like a good theme for a ska podcast…
