Hello, we’re the Manga Mavericks! We remember it so you don’t have too! Wait, no, that’s the Nostalgia Critic. Let’s try this again.

Welcome to the Manga Mavericks podcast, where bad comics bur…no, darn it, that’s Linkara! Um, let me think about this for a second. Hmm…okay, got one!

Greetings fanboys and fangirls! We’re…huh? You’re telling me that’s taken too?! Gaaahhhh!!! Why is it so frigging hard to come up with an original, memorable catchphrase?

Well, we might not have a fancy-schmancy catchphrase, but we still got plenty of manga news to talk about! Join your titular mavericks, Colton and Sid, as we discuss the New York Times’ Best Selling Manga List, run down the newest manga releases coming out in February, and pointlessly debate whether Viz will run any new Jump Starts because we recorded a week too early! Also, why we think romantic comedies suck, why Nisekoi doesn’t suck anymore, and what our favorite and least favorite currently running Shonen Jump series are! I bet you’ll never guess what Sid’s is…Bring out your pitchforks and fire up that hate-mail!

Or, if you like what we have to say and want to see more, follow us on twitter at @sniperking323 and @lumranmayasha. If there’s something you want to ask that’s too big to tweet, drop us a line in the comments below, or e-mail us at mangamavericks@gmail.com! Enjoy the show!
