On this episode of Manga Mavericks, Colton & Lum discuss Gengoroh Tagame’s Our Colors with translator of the book, Anne Ishii! Our Colors is Tagame’s newest all ages comic about a high schooler named Sora Itoda, who struggles with being himself around most of his family and friends because he hasn’t worked up the courage to come out yet. That is, until he meets, Mr. Amamiya, the owner of a hidden local café and the first real gay person Sora becomes friends with who inspires him little by little to start living as his true self (but little does Sora know, he may end up doing the same for Mr. Amamiya as well). The Mavericks discuss with Anne about her time translating the series, as well as why it may be even better then Tagame’s previous all ages work, My Brother’s Husband! Enjoy!

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.
