Manga Mavericks EP. 111: “New Manga for a New Decade!”


The first new manga of the 2020s have arrived, and we’re excited to talk about them! We cover the first new Shonen Jump series of the year and decade, Undead Unluck, Mashle: Magic and Muscles, and Guardian of the Witch, as well as a new global multi-language simulpub from Kodansha – Ashidaka – The Iron Hero! Plus, we discuss the return of Death Note in its first new one-shot in over a decade, which went widely viral for very weird reasons! Then, we have a beefier community shout-outs segment to share some great new podcasts that’ve come out recently! It’s a compact but comprehensive podcast sure to help you find new manga to read and new podcasts to check out and enjoy!
