On this episode of Manga Mavericks, its time once again to go over the latest news from the past month as we discuss the latest serialization, licensing and anime news! Plus we finally get to some Shonen Jump popularity polls we haven’t had the time to go over! Other topics of discussion include our thoughts on Blood Blockade Battlefront, Kodansha finally making GTO available digitally, and how we feel about Manga Plus’s new reading campaign and whether its a ploy just to compete with Viz’s Shonen Jump app.

Be sure to take our annual podcast survey by Sunday, February 13th, for a chance to win some free manga!!

Check out the latest episode of our irregular History of Manga Magazines mini-series over on our Patreon!

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.
