    Manga Mavericks EP. 127: Cross Manage

    Manga Mavericks EP. 127: Cross Manage

    On this episode of Manga Mavericks, Colton & Lum are joined by special guests, Maxy Barnard of Friendship Effort Victory, Marion from the Good Friends Anime Club, as well as Aisha from the MommaLuvsManga Youtube Channel, to talk about Cross Manage from Kaito! Cross Manage is a sports series about teenager Sakurai, an ex-soccer player who is roped into serving as the problem solving manager of his high school's lacrosse team. This is also another series unfortunately cut short by Weekly Shonen Jump, but also had a full simulpubbed run in English back when Viz's Shonen Jump was in its Alpha phase, as such, this is another "cancelled Shonen Jump manga" podcast, which we will from now on be referring to as "Jump Stop" podcasts! Get it, cause its the opposite of "Jump Starts"? D'aaah, you get it, you get it...

    Cross Manage in particular may be the most beloved of these "pre-Jump Start" series licensed and simulpubbed by Viz Media, so of course we spend a lot of time discussing it from a ton of different angles: From Kaito's composition and paneling, to the story's themes of effort and perseverance, as well as just why its run in Shonen Jump may have been cut short.

    Join us next week as we discuss Kaito's more recent series, Blue Flag!!

    Manga Mavericks EP. 124: "Love Me For Who I Am"

    Manga Mavericks EP. 124: "Love Me For Who I Am"

    If Love Me For Who I Am’s non-binary maid is reporting for duty, then our non-binary host is recording a podcast about it!

    That’s right, we’re reviewing the first volume of a newly released series on the show this time! We haven’t spotlighted a lot of new releases recently, but we had to make an exception for this exceptional manga exploring gender and the LGBTQ community in Japan in a way we’ve rarely seen. Joining us to discuss the series is someone who’s basically become its ambassador on MangaTwitter, Ashley Hakker from Anime Herald! Ashley helps us dig into each of the series’ fantastic cast of characters, core themes, and beautiful artwork, exploring what makes it such a sweet, one-of-a-kind story!

    We also spend some time discussing a topic close to LumRanmaYasha - the recent #FUCKSVA initiative - and why the School of Visual Arts needs to make long overdue changes to make its campus a safe learning environment for students. It’s a more serious topic sandwiched in the middle of two relatively more light-hearted parts of the podcast, but again, we’re committed to having conversations important topics affecting the community on the show and advocating for change, so we hope you also look into what’s going on at SVA and help the students there fight for a better education too.

    We’re also committed to spotlighting the great work people are doing in our community, and since our review was on the shorter end this time, we had the opportunity for a special-sized community Shout-Outs segment spotlighting over a dozen awesome articles, podcasts, and videos to check out! So enjoy this podcast and check out Love Me For Who I Am as well as the work of all the great people we recommend in this episode!

    Manga Mavericks EP. 122: Moriking, Bone Collection,Time Paradox

    Manga Mavericks EP. 122: Moriking, Bone Collection,Time Paradox

    Geez, between all the series starting and ending in Shonen Jump recently, it sure feels like the brand is entering a new era. Heck, by the end of 2020 over half of the lineup will consist of series that only started this year! There are so many new series starting up that we’re getting up our episode on the last batch just as the new batch has started. Actually, there’s been a new series every month so far this year - it’s hard to keep up!

    Well, before we can talk about Ayakashi Triangle and the other new blood starting up, we still have to take care of some leftovers. Is Moriking a supremely funny gag comedy or did we want to squash it like a bug? Was Bone Collection bad to the bone? Did we have the time of our lives reading Time Paradox Ghost Writer? Does the Food Wars duo’s new one-shot Yugen’s All-Ghouls Classroom have a ghost of a chance at becoming a regular series in Jump? Is there anything substantial to say about any of these beyond quips and puns? Eh, honestly I wish we’d read more chapters before reviewing Time Paradox. We recorded this a month ago so we only got to read the first chapter before the show, so a bunch of our speculation about how the relationship between Teppei and Aino would turn out is a bit out of date…

    Ah well, we actually do have a lot of stuff to say about it and the other new series, so it’s all good! Enjoy our thoughts and recommendations of some of Jump’s newest stuff, and look forward to us talking about even more new Jump series very, very soon!

Awesome

They invest a lot of time in their episodes and it shows. They cover a ton of manga and manga-related material and have a variety of fun special episodes with great guests. Check out their huge Shonen Jump episode. It's fantastic.

Derek’s thoughts

I just got into manga about a year ago , anime maybe 4 years ago , so some of the titles they review I don’t really know but I still don’t find my self being bored while listening , I even find my self wanting to read some of the titles they talk about on this podcast, I’m a delivery driver so I sit in a car all day listening to this podcast makes the day go by faster
