The Legacy Music Hour: Manga

Manga is the focus of Episode 97.  That is, 8-bit and 16-bit era video games based on manga (Japanese comics).  Wow, what a ton of unheard titles the boys discovered in preparation for this episode.  Brent and Rob narrow it down to some nice tracks for your “duguh duguh duguh” and “rrrrrrrreeehh” listening pleasure.  Full track listing below.
