On this episode of Manga Mavericks, Colton & Lum spend most of the time just catching up on the news, including Oricon’s list of the top 10 highest selling manga series from the past year (in which case, number 1 WILL surprise you!), as well as some shake ups in the anime/manga industry that may or may not have already happened by the time this episode has been released. We also talk about some new additions to the Shonen Jump app such as new series, Sakamoto Days, as well as one of two new character centric one shots from The Promised Neverland! There is plenty more that our Mavericks discuss, so much more that we had to save some news for next week’s episode! So until then, cozy up and brace yourselves for the winter season, as you listen to your friendly neighborhood Mavericks. <3

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.
