On this episode of Manga Mavericks, Colton & Lum once again invite futekiya editor-in-chief, Emma Hanashiro, onto the show, this time to read and discuss some of the titles available on the service! To start off, we discuss Hard Biscuits, a one shot from Iwasawa Midori about cars and guy searching for a good mechanic that can help him fix up and sell used cars. Afterwards, we discuss While Being Seen off by Campanella, a single volume work from Kyoyama Atsuki that is an introspective character study about a man learning to open up to people again while recovering from a particularly bad break up. Last, but certainly not least, is Yuki & Matsu from Takahashi Hidebu! A very steamy and passionate three volume series set in feudal era Japan about a lost ronin and a local village doctor who find each other and end up forming a lifelong partnership. Join us as we cover a varied selection of titles and barely scratch the surface of what futekiya has to offer!

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.
