* Take the Manga Mavericks 5-Year Anniversary Survey and Enter to Win a Free manga! More Details Below!*

 

On this episode of Manga Mavericks, Colton & Lum travel to the Hole to take a look at Q Hayashida’s Dorohedoro! A violent but wholesome tale of mystery and intrigue, as lizard man Caiman and his gyoza shop owner friend, Nikaido, search for answers about who he is and where he came from, but thats only scratching the surface of everything this series has to offer! We’re joined by special guests and superfans, such as returning guests, Marion from the Good Friends Anime Club podcast and cosplayer extraordinaire Diana Soreil, as well as new guest, Ely, to talk about as much Dorohedoro as we can in one sitting! Special thanks to our lovely patrons on our Patreon whose support helped us acquire a good portion of the manga to be able to read for this episode!

Unfortunately, we also have to start the episode off with addressing some not so good news involving a few now known sex criminals from the manga industry on both sides of the pond. One of them we’d previously had as a guest on our show before, but are taking the necessary steps towards removing them and any mentions of them from our show as not to associate ourselves with them. Afterwards though, you can hear about some actual good news including some small but exciting changes to our Patreon, as well as the celebration around the 1000th chapter of One Piece! But anyway, start ordering your gyoza now, because you’ll be craving it after listening to us gush about Q Hayashida’s masterpiece! Enjoy!

Our survey has been extended until Sunday morning, January 31st, which means two more weeks to submit your entries! We look forward to seeing your guys’ feedback and discussing the results of the survey on our upcoming 150th episode spectacular – celebrating the 5th anniversary of this podcast is gonna be a magical moment!

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.
