On this episode of Manga Mavericks, we invite on Kendra from the My Hero Academia Podcast, as well as Luke from Hero Notes and the Weird Science Manga & Anime Podcast to discuss My Hero Academia: SMASH!! A 4 panel gag comedy spin off of My Hero Academia where almost anything can happen! Like Shigaraki and the League of Villains kidnaping Bakugo to play board games, or Iida playing Gacha games in order to teach his fellow classmates the horrors of gambling addiction, or even introducing a character with a quirk called Isekai that causes the world to stay stuck in time forever (yes, that actually happens). We discuss this mixed bag of gags and goofs and how its a good avenue to give some characters more screen time, but also how some strips and jokes just absolutely do not land or are just plain gross. Is this the worst thing we’ve ever read on Manga Mavericks!? Tune in and find out!
