On this episode of Manga Mavericks, Colton & Lum invite back on friend of the show and founder of the Weekly Shogakukan Edition blog and Twitter, Sakaki, as well as first time guest and Manga Youtuber extraordinaire, Zach “UchuuShelf”, to discuss Ken Wakui’s Tokyo Revengers! A series involving both intense delinquent battles and time travel, as our protagonist, Takemichi, has to go back in time to ensure that his old girlfriend from middle school isn’t killed in the present, and to do that, he has to become a member of the Tokyo Manji gang! This series in particular has so many twists and turns that we even had section off a portion of the podcast dedicated to freaking over the crazy, insane stuff that happens all throughout! But even before all of that, we spend a lot of time both praising the series for its strong, resonant writing, while also lamenting on the treatment of some of its female characters as a way to get to most of those moments. Join us as we talk about one of the best selling manga of the year so far! Enjoy!!

Colton & Sakaki’s Dragon Ball podcast, Another Day, Another Adventure, is now available publicly wherever you listen to podcasts! So if you liked this episode of Manga Mavericks, be sure to check them out over there!

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.
