After over 3 years, we’ve reached the 100th episode of Manga Mavericks! And to celebrate, we’re joined by a panel of special guests, including Morgana Santilli from Manga Machinations, Buggy from DaLadyBugProductions, and Maxy Barnard from Friendship Effort Victory, to discuss the topic of Manga Piracy! We hold nothing back and go all in as we discuss our thoughts and feelings on pirating manga and other media, as well as how the topic is handled and discussed amongst both in fandom and industry circles. We also give tips on how best to support the industry and just where to buy manga. Thankfully there are tons of options, so be sure to listen and enjoy!

Join us next Sunday, October 27th, for Part 2 of our 100th episode, as we discuss the results of our recent survey where listeners weighed in on their favorite episodes of Manga Mavericks, as well as the Mavericks Crew’s favorites as well!

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.
