On this episode of Manga Mavericks, Colton & Lum are joined by John from the MercuryFalcon Youtube channel, as well as Karleen & Malia from Coherent Cats, to discuss Osamu Tezuka’s original Dororo manga! A story about a wandering samurai named Hyakkimaru and his rambunctious thief sidekick, Dororo, as they hunt down and slay all kinds of evil spirits and yokai in order for Hyakkimaru to regain all 48 of his missing body parts (and also hunt for treasure, I guess…). We’re excited to finally cover our first Tezuka manga as we discuss how feel about Dororo compared to some of his other works, as well as how we feel about Tezuka’s handling of Hyakkimaru’s physical disabilities and Dororo’s gender identity.

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 was a show 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 Sket Dance, Eyeshield 21, My Hero Academia and much, much more. Colton can be found frequenting sites such as Anilist and Twitter under the handle of sniperking323.
