Manga Mavericks @ Movies is starting the new year strong with our first ever crossover podcast! LumRanmaYasha teams up with Just a Gintama Podcast’s Doctor and Manga Mavericks co-host and Life Lessons: The Gintama Mangacast’s Colton to discuss the live-action Gintama movie! One discussion recorded for three different podcasts, each with their own unique beginnings and endings! It’s like playing a branching route in a fighting game! So, did these three die-hard Gintama fans enjoy this film? Have they adapted the Benizakura arc too many times for us to care anymore? Is this another failure in a long line of attempts to make live-action cartoons? Will LumRanmaYasha ever edit those thirty+ unreleased episodes of this show we recorded last year? All these answers will be solved by the end of this podcast! Ok, maybe not that last one…
