This week we’re continuing to dig through our backlog of unreleased episodes to finally deliver you guys one of the oldest in our archive! Back in May 2017 we recorded an episode of @ Movies discussing three very different films that we’d seen between late April to early May – the Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress compilation films, Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2, My Entire High School is Sinking Into the Sea! These three films don’t have anything in common other than we saw them around the same time and decided to record about them on the same audio file, but hey, variety is the spice of life! So, did we enjoy the Kabaneri compilations more than its regular tv cut? Is Guardians of the Galaxy vol 2 a worthy follow-up to Marvel’s breakout sci-fi comedy? What even is My Entire High School is Sinking Into the Sea about? No kidding, I have no clue! Find out the answers to these questions and more in this long overdue edition of Manga Mavericks @ Movies!
