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!

About The Author Colton

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 was a show 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 Sket Dance, Eyeshield 21, My Hero Academia and much, much more. Colton can be found frequenting sites such as Anilist and Twitter under the handle of sniperking323.
