On this episode of Manga Mavericks, not only do we have another Jump Stop series to talk about, but we also kick off the start of our Kohei Horikoshi month by talking about his first series to run in Weekly Shonen Jump, Oumagadoki Zoo! A story about clumsy high school girl, Aoi Hana, and her attempt to better herself by applying for a part time job as a zookeeper, but she ends up biting more then she can chew as the zoo turns out to be run by a crazy, magical rabbit man cursed with the task of turning his zoo into the most popular one in the world in order to become human again. We once again have returning guests such as cancelled Shonen Jump comic expert, Maxy Barnard, and manga letterer, Ace Christman, as well as new guest and artist extraordinaire, Sai, to discuss why Oumagadoki Zoo is a fun read despite how Horikoshi still has a long way to go as a mangaka until his eventual rise to success with My Hero Academia! Enjoy!

Check out our newest bonus podcast over at our Patreon where we talk with Maxy Barnard about different manga magazines in a new irregular mini-series!!

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.
