The Manga Mavericks have expanded into the realm of movies! Well, half of them anyway. Manga Mavericks @ Movies is a new spinoff of Manga Mavericks hosted and edited by LumRanmaYasha, who visits cinemas at least once a week to watch movies and has been eager to find an outlet to talk about what he’s seen.
