On this episode of Manga Mavericks, Colton & Lum spend most of the show catching up on and discussing their thoughts on the latest round of Jump Starts from Shonen Jump (Phantom Seer, High School Family & Our Blood Oath), as well as some other simulpub debuts from Mangamo (Deathdeus: Hero of the Dead & My Evil Stepbrother) and Manga Plus (World’s End Harem ~Britannia Lumiére~, Hokkaido Gals are Super Adorable, Excuse Me Dentist, It’s Touching Me! & Ron Kamonohashi: Deranged Detective). Afterward, they discuss their thoughts on the latest bonus chapters of The Promised Neverland & Demon Slayer, and then round off the show by talking about Sawanabe Zombie by Kakio Tsurukawa from Star Fruit Books! We also have our usual news roundup discussing topics such as Demon Slayer catching up to My Hero Academia on the newest Bookscan list, the baffling ending of Iori Asaga’s Dear Sa-chan, and the new licenses we have to look forward from publishers like Yen Press and Star Fruit Books!

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.
