On this episode of Manga Mavericks, Colton & Lum once again report on and discuss the latest in manga news with new series, what new manga licenses they’re looking forward to, as well new anime films coming to the US! Particular topics include our thoughts on what’s been happening in Fire Force recently, a beloved(?) Fist of the North Star character getting their own isekai manga, and our thoughts on the first chapter of Nio Nakatani’s newest manga, God Bless the Mistaken, the newest simulpub from Yen Press!
Note from Colton: So the day after this episode of the podcast was fully edited, it was announced that both Zero’s Tea Time and The Culprit Hanzawa (Hannin no Hanzawa) had been picked up by Netflix! So I’m just making note of that here since I didn’t have time to mention it in the episode after the fact.
