It’s time to round out our trilogy of @ Movies Patreon Peeks by releasing a snippet of our exhaustive discussion of the biggest anime blockbuster in North America in over 20 years – Dragon Ball Super: Broly!
We’ve previously discussed the film on Manga Mavericks, but on this episode, we dive even deeper into the film’s production and promotional history, the new insights it gives us into the life of the Saiyans, our thoughts on Broly’s new backstory and characterization, and of course – the film’s absolutely jaw-droppingly awesome animation! Plus, Vix shares her thoughts on reading through the manga for the first time, what she enjoys most about the series, and why she thinks this film is a return to form for the franchise! So get ready for a jam-packed discussion on this box office berserker as we explore in excruciating detail just what makes this film’s reinterpretation of the infamous Super Saiyan legitimately legendary!
If you like what you hear, you can listen to our full podcast at patreon.com/mangamavericks, where we have almost a dozen other bonus podcasts waiting for you at our $5 tier, including other @ Movies reviews of Alita: Battle Angel and Captain Marvel!
Our recent project is another Manga Mavericks Book Club read-through series. Colton and Doctor will be going through Masami Kurumada’s classic shonen epic Saint Seiya two volumes at a time! You can check out a free preview of the entire first episode on our feed now, and pledge to our Patreon to hear the rest as they come out!

We’ll soon be finished releasing all our pre-produced podcasts by the end of April. While we also plan to record episodes on Violet Evergarden: Eternity and the Auto-Memory Doll and Rascal Does Not Dream of a Dreaming Girl, there aren’t a ton of *new* anime films for us to talk about what with theaters being closed indefinitely and all. Our tentative plan is to go through some films from our personal collection in May. We’ve collected a few films over the years that we never actually got around to watching, so now’s a perfect time to finally get through that backlog!
