On this episode of Manga Mavericks, Colton & Lum come together for another news episode! Discussion includes a lot what went on at Anime Expo a couple of weeks ago, such as the crew’s Zom 100 fever and announcements from panels held by Noir Caesar, Trigger and Netflix! Along with our thoughts on how the live action One Piece series is shaping up after seeing the teaser and our picks for which new manga licenses have been announced over the past month as well! Due to time constraints, the episode is light on actual news compared to normal, but our Mavericks still have a lot of fun, laid-back discussion about all the cool stuff that’s been coming out or that they have to look forward to! So enjoy that!

Check out the first episode of the Manga Mavericks Anime Club! A new podcast exclusively available on the Patreon where we’ll be discussing various different anime! Starting with a blind watch-through of Hajime no Ippo!

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.
