On this episode of Manga Mavericks, we’re releasing a compilation of our thoughts over the years on Gengoroh Tagame’s My Brother’s Husband! A story about a single father who has to face his internalized prejudices in order to accept certain members of his family for who they are. The first discussion comes from Episode 35 of the podcast when we went over our first impressions of the series with Pantheon’s release of the first volume back in 2017, with the second discussion being the bonus podcast we released on our Patreon covering the rest of the series three years later in 2020! Our good friend, Maxy Barnard of Friendship Effort Victory and Shonen Flop joined us for both podcasts! We three, along with the podcast, may have changed a lot in the past five years altogether, but our love for My Brother’s Husband certainly has not! Join us next week as we review Gengoroh Tagame’s Our Colors with special guest and translator of the series, Anne Ishi!!

If you liked the part of the discussion that came from our Patreon, be sure to sign up for even more great bonus content!!

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.
