Guys, we have to apologize. We totally forgot to mention all the new manga releases coming out in March on the last podcast! I know how disappointed you all must have been. I mean, how else were you guys supposed to know what’s coming out? Look it up yourself? Outrageous!

But wait a minute! Before you tar and feather us, let us make amends by giving a quick rundown of all the new manga that debuted this month:

Forget Me Not volume 1 by Kenji Tsuruta
Goodnight Punpun volume 1 by Inio Asano
Mysterious Girlfriend X volume 1 by Riichi Ueshiba
Danganronpa: The Animation volume 1 by Spike Chunsoft
Akame ga Kill! Zero volume 1 by Takahiro Toru & Kei Toru
Magatsuki volume 1 by Hoshino Taguchi
Person Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth Side: P4 volume 1 by Mizunomoto
Real Account volume 1 by Okushou & Shizumu Watanabe
Sword Art Online: Mother’s Rosary volume 1 by Reki Kawahara & Tsubasa Haduki
Nichijou volume 1 by Keiichi Arawi
Not Lives volume 1 by Wataru Karasuma

There, that should cover it. We’ll remember to cover April’s releases properly in the next episode!

So with that out of the way, what’s in store for the Manga Mavericks this week? Well, as usual, Colton and Sid have got the latest NYT Top Selling Manga List and plenty of news to discuss, and a whole lot of it is Weekly Shonen Jump related! If March is Anime Madness, then April has got to be Jump Madness, because there’s a lot to look forward to from the imprint next month, particularly the long-awaited return of Hunter X Hunter! How long will the series run for this time? One chapter, two…gasp, maybe we’ll get three whole new chapters! How very exciting! Also, Colton gushes over the upcoming Yu-Gi-Oh! movie, and reveals that he takes a series about a children’s card game very, very seriously. Almost unhealthily seriously. Maybe disturbingly so…
