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!

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.
