All I can say is: Where is my chessboxing sports manga?
Other people might say: This should be worked into a Sheppard/McKay story. Somehow, it seems like it would fit.
Also, there's some interesting discussion in last week's post on Tezuka, Ryoma, and shounen sports series so have another look if you like the tenipuri meta.
I keep thinking about posting other things and then thinking I should wait until after Escapade, when people are here and not distracted. Sadly, I 'm not going to be at Escapade this year. I hope you all have a great time!
