On this episode of Manga Mavericks, it time once again to catch up on a ton of news!! Colton & Lum discuss the latest new serializations, licenses and anime news! Such stories include Togashi starting his own Twitter account to tease the latest manuscripts he’s been drawing, the now confirmed US theatrical release date for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero and the ongoing unionization of the worker of Seven Seas!!

Note 1: Right in the middle of writing this post, we got an update from Eric letting us know that he found the manga he was looking for! For anyone who was curious, its Umisora Kaze ni Hana by Masaru Ooishi, which unfortunately isn’t out in English at the time of writing this, but maybe one day!

Note 2: We recorded this episode before it was confirmed that Hakusensha would continuing Berserk with the help of Kouji Mori and the people of Studio Gaga, but we will for sure be discussing that on our next episode!

About The Author Colton

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.
