On this Manga Mavericks, its once again time for another news roundup, but this time we try something different! Instead of bogging down the episode with a huge slew of licenses that have been announced since the last time news was covered, Colton & Lum decide to each make their own short list of licenses that they’re personally looking forward to seeing! Its a slight change in format compared to how the Mavericks normally report on news, but it gives them the time and energy to report on and discuss other more pressing matters like the recent statement from Amimaru regarding their questionable translation wages, the noticeable increase in other countries’ need of legal streaming anime after the shut down of pirate site KissAnime and more!! Enjoy.

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.
