On this episode of Manga Mavericks, we were going to be talking about Shaman King, but instead we’ll be talking about HOT, the newest one shot by Akira Amano (Reborn, elDLIVE) from Weekly Shonen Jump! With Colton and Sid not being very familiar with Amano’s past works, will HOT convince them to start diving into her bibliography, or will they only feel cold towards it? We also have some news to discuss beforehand, such as ICV2’s top 10 manga franchises of Spring 2018, more new digital titles from Kodansha, and David Pro’s Captain Tsubasa anime getting an English dub on a TV channel that (probably) nobody has! 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.
