On this episode of Manga Mavericks, Colton & Lum are joined by both Maxy Barnard of Friendship Effort Victory and Shonen Flop, as well as Doctor from the SSAA Podcast, to discuss yet another Jump Stop manga with Tomohiro Yagi’s Red Sprite! A series centered around protagonist, Tatsu Frampt, who after having his orphan friends taken away to be used as human batteries by a definitely-not-fascist government, crashes their country’s dictator’s highly televised rally and commandeers an airship in order to find his friends and start up their own independent nation! The nation of Manga Mavericks however is a little split this time around, as some of its citizens find this series to be sort of an enjoyable, breezy read, despite it clearly not living up to its potential. While other citizens find this series so frustratingly barren of any kind of set up and payoff for anything it wants to explore, that they might just consider it one of the worst Jump Stop manga ever covered on the show! What side do you fall on? Listen to the episode and decide for yourself!

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.
