On this episode of Manga Mavericks, Lum & Colton gather their friends together for another big Shonen Jump discussion, this time on Shueisha’s Manga Plus app and website and the many new simulpubs it has to offer!! Listen as Maxy Barnard (Friendship Effort Victory) gushes about Kaito’s latest series, Blue Flag, or Patrick “TheComicFiend” (Super Senpai Podcast) talk about survival thrillers like Arata Primal and Soloist in a Cage, or Vlord as he rejoices in new favorites like Teenage Renaissance David and Hinomaru Sumo finally being simulpubbed making almost all of Shonen Jump currently available in English! We talk a lot about Manga Plus and highlight its differences from Viz Media’s Shonen Jump app as well as talk more about that app as well now that we’re three months out from it’s launch! What do we love about about these apps and what do we have issues with? You’ll have to listen and find out!

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.
