Welcome back to Waiting on the Trade, a comics book club for people who don’t have time for monthly comics!
In this episode, guest host Bryce Manning joins us to talk sexuality and superpowers, as we discuss the first volume of Yuu Toyota’s Cherry Magic! Thirty Years of Virginity Can Make You a Wizard?!.
This Month’s Discussion Questions:
- If this weren’t a RomCom, would Kurosawa be the perfect boyfriend or a potential stalker/serial killer?
- Do you think Adachi is actually bi?
- Do you think the telepathic powers virgins are given are supposed to give them a helping hand? And would the powers actually be beneficial in the real world?
- Would you trade the ability to have sex for a superpower? And if so, what superpower?
- (For Bryce, who has some background knowledge) How would this material be received in Japan?
- What did you think about the extra material added to this volume?
