Manga Mavericks EP. 61: “Teenage Renaissance David & I’m From Japan”


On this episode of Manga Mavericks, we only meet halfway on the promises of last episode as we don’t just record another news only episode, but didn’t have time to release all of what was promised. The good news is that we have another great Jump Start discussion with good friend of the show, Maxy Barnard, of Friendship Effort Victory! As we discuss the beginning chapters of two new gag manga in Weekly Shonen Jump entitled Teenage Renaissance David and I’m From Japan! Are these the two new additions to Jump’s lineup that will satisfy Maxy’s desperate need for comedy in Jump, or will they be two series doomed to capture the audience’s (as well as Colton’s) attention and fail?

Join us next time as we discuss some My Hero Academia goodness including our thoughts on the All Might Rising prequel chapter, as well as our experience seeing Two Heroes in theaters! Until then, enjoy the episode!
