On this episode of Manga Mavericks, Colton has a lot of news and manga to cover, but with the help of his conveniently newfound podcast hosting powers, he won’t have to go at it alone! First he enlists the help of Shonen Sunday enthusiast, Bomber D. Rufi (@kiirobon), in order to not just tackle whatever news they could at the time, but also cover all of the new one shots now available on the Shonen Jump app and website from well known artists such as Boichi, Yusuke Murata and Yusei Matsui! Join our heroes as they tackle such exciting news stories including the overwhelmingly huge wave of new Boys Love manga that have arrived on the market through futekiya and other publishers, SOZO Comics licensing new series from their humble beginnings to be read on Comixology, as well as the most taxing challenge in all of manga fandom: Kodansha USA licensing new shojo manga when one of them is actually from a shonen magazine!!! (Disclaimer: Labels don’t actually matter, but this is also the internet we’re talking about)
After Colton and Bomber exhaust themselves with the news, Colton summons his faithful friends, co-host LumRanmaYasha and Maxy Barnard from Friendship Effort Victory, to tackle not just the latest Black Clover and We Never Learn popularity polls, but what also might be some of the most controversial new series to come out of Manga Plus: Hina Change and Dear Sa-chan! Both of the these new simulpubs are…challenging to say the least! Both of which tackling controversial subject matter that may be too much for some people, but not the Mavericks! Find out how they feel about these and all the rest of the new manga that have come out in the past month, on this, the latest episode of the podcast! Enjoy!!
