On this episode of Manga Mavericks, Colton & Lum once again catch up on some news! Including the usual serialization news, some industry stuff, a bunch of cool anime and popularity poll news, and so many licenses that they had to pick a select few talk about, but they're all great nonetheless!! Even after all the news, they still take the time to talk about the first chapter of Choujin X, the newest series from Tokyo Ghoul creator, Sui Ishida, and boy was it a first chapter!! This episode of the podcast is dedicated to the passing of Shunsuke Kikuchi, Akira Ito, and Kentaro Miura. Thank you for everything you've given us, and rest in peace.
