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!
