On this episode of Manga Mavericks, Lum & Colton take a closer look at the Mangamo app and read a few select titles such as the award-winning MMO rom-com Loving Yamada at LV999!, the hilariously cruel Dropkick on My Devil, and the thoughtful gender identity story of I Wanna Be Your Girl. They also take a look at even some more recent additions to the app with The Most Tsundere Boss in History and The Warrior Demigods, Champions of Sparta!

The Mangamo app is available on both iOS and Android devices for $4.99 month, so be sure to go and check it out today!

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.
