On this episode of Manga Mavericks, we invite on Chris & Nik from Weekly Manga Recap for our next Jump Stop podcast where we discuss Kohei Horikoshi’s second ever Weekly Shonen Jump manga, Barrage (or Sensei no Baruji)! A sci-fi adventure take on the classic Prince and the Pauper type of story about an orphan boy named Barrage, who works for whatever little food he can give to his family, until one night where he runs into and witnesses the death of the prince of the kingdom and ends up being mistaken for said prince, which leads him into taking on his responsibilities as peacemaker going from village to village to protect those who need it most! We discuss how we feel about the series in particular as a transitionary point in Horikohi’s career and what he improves on from Oumagadoki Zoo, but also what aspects he will later eventually execute better with My Hero Academia afterwards.

Head on over to our Patreon to get early access to our LGBT Manga discussion before its available publicly later this year!

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.
