Manga Mavericks EP 83: We Never Learn


On this episode of Manga Mavericks, Lum & Colton are joined by Buggy from DaLadyBugProductions, as well as Hovin from Stammer Stream, to discuss Weekly Shonen Jump’s We Never Learn from Taichi Tsutsui! A harem romcom that is more then meets the eye, as ordinary but hard working high school student, Nariyuki Yuiga, has to tutor two of the smartest girls in school in subjects that stump them completely, all in order to receive a VIP recommendation to the college of his choice! How have Colton & Lum’s feelings have changed on the series since it’s debut back in 2016, and why is it worth reading despite certain…”aspects”? We discuss our opinions on the cast and how the reliability of their struggles may resonate with the target readership, as well which of them may or may not be queer and why.

Next week, we discuss the latest in manga news, as well as some new simulpubs from Manga Plus! The week after, we’ll be answering your We Never Learn questions (we had too many to go over on this episode), but for now, enjoy!
