On this episode of Manga Mavericks, we dedicate an entire episode to the latest round of Jump Starts recently featured in Viz Media’s Weekly Shonen Jump! Including the action packed, time travelling adventures of Seiji Tanaka: Secretary to the Managing President, General Time Industries from Keiji Amatsuka, as well as the musical, coming of age story of Alice & Taiyo from Takahide Totsuno. We also discuss Tite Kubo’s latest one-shot, Burn The Witch, and Food Wars creators Yuto Tsukuda and Shun Saeki’s take on One Piece with Shokugeki no Sanji!! Topics of discussion from Colton and Sid include which of the two newest Jump Starts they’d like to see more of, the flaws of Kubo’s general storytelling, and why Shokugeki no Sanji is such a breath of fresh air for Sanji as a character. Enjoy!

About The Author Colton Solem

Colton is just your regular glasses wearing nerd residing in Saint Louis, Misery (that's a joke) who loves reading and collecting manga as a hobby and also records too many podcasts! He started off his podcasting escapades in 2013 when he created Life Lessons: The Gintama Manga Cast, which is dedicated to Gintama and its past English release of the manga. From there he became the co-host of shows such as the Manga Corner from Anime3000, Heavenly Kings, One Podcast Prevails and many more. Colton first discovered manga back in 2006 when he bought his first issue of Shonen Jump, and ever since then, his love and passion for manga took off from there! His favorite titles include One Piece, Eyeshield 21, My Hero Academia and much, much more. Oh yeah, guess he likes anime as well (but truth be told didn't know what it actually was until about 2007). Colton can be found frequenting sites such as MyAnimeList and Twitter under the handle of sniperking323.
