Manga Mavericks Ep 59: “The (Now Named) Nameless Man”


ANOTHER news-only episode?! What is this, 2016? Don’t worry folks, we’ll have series to cover and topics to discuss very soon! We’ve been listening to your feedback and we’ll be implementing some changes that we think you’ll be really happy with starting from the next episode onwards. We’re committed to bringing on more guests and talking about more than shonen series, not just other manga, but discussion-forum episodes on important topics that deserve a thorough dialogue. We’ve got a lot of plans, and here’s hoping we’ll be able to follow through on some of them before the year’s out!

For now, it’s just the two of us and the news, but it’s quite a crop of news! We’ve got an MHA-dominated Bookscan list, new simulpubs at Crunchyroll, a Promised Neverland character popularity poll, and a whole lot more to cover! Listen and be entertained as Colton tries to blindly guess who the top ten most popular Promised Neverland characters are after not having read the series for a couple months. He didn’t even know the Nameless Man is now named!
