Manga Mavericks Ep 60: Not Another News Episode!


On this episode of Manga Mavericks, what was supposed to be an episode discussing the latest Jump Starts from Shonen Jump and My Hero Academia goodness with Maxy Barnard of Friendship Effort Victory, turned out to be another news episode again! We promise you’ll get to hear that discussion next time, but in the meantime, we have plenty of news to keep us busy! Including unfortunate news for Yusuke Murata’s Back To The Future manga, another tidal wave of licenses from Seven Seas, and just how well My Hero Academia: Two Heroes has been doing at the box office! We PROMISE we’ll have a non-news episode next time, but enjoy a shorter episode until then!
