Welcome to Manga Mavericks! 
Manga Mavericks is the internet's premier manga discussion podcast! Every week we chat about what’s new in the world of manga, the state of the industry, and have discussion topics on various aspects of the manga experience. Since 2016 we've covered the latest in manga news and done massive in-depth retrospectives on several beloved series like  Devilman World TriggerPokemon Adventures JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and even  Weekly Shonen Jump itself! We also regularly interview and feature folks working in the manga industry, from letterer  Annaliese Christman , to Viz editor  Marlene First, and even Jason Thompson, the first editor of the North America Shonen Jump! 

Our podcast is hosted by  LumRanmaYasha - a non-binary bisexual who loves to gush about every manga sprung from the mind of Rumiko Takahashi, and  Colton Solem - a seasoned podcast veteran who is also the host of several podcasts dedicated to long-running shonen series like  Life Lessons: The Gintama Manga Cast and the Case Closed-centric  One Podcast Prevails! Together we've recorded over 100 podcasts under the Manga Mavericks name, and we're looking to go beyond 1000! But we'll need YOUR help to make it all possible! 

Why Patreon? 

Making Manga Mavericks has been an incredible, life-changing experience for both of us, but it hasn't been without its costs. Buying the manga we read for the show can be an expensive endeavor, and there's always additional expenses we have to make to create the podcasts themselves. This show is a time-intensive labor of love that we do in our free time, but we want to make a variety of content that we can't do with our current resources. We're fortunate to have a following of wonderful fans who've let us know they'd like to support the show and help us continue to make it even better. With your support, Manga Mavericks can power up from just a part-time hobby to a full-time phenomenon! 

But that's not all! Here are some of our other shows that you'd help support by pledging to our Patreon! 

Manga Mavericks @ Movies is a show where LumRanmaYasha and their brother VlordGTZ talk smack about movies, mostly anime-related.

Manga Fights pits some of the Internet's smartest manga geeks against each other in a "high-stakes" debating game, where topics range from the analytical to the absurd! 

#LumSquad is a podcast hosted by LumRanmaYasha and @ProdTally devoted to the wonderful world of Rumiko Takahashi's Urusei Yatsura!

And if that's not enough, as thanks for supporting us, Patrons will receive exclusive content that won't be available anywhere else! We're talking Blooper Reels, live-streams, unreleased episodes, and a Monthly Patron-Exclusive Podcast!  

So without delay, become a patron today and help us celebrate the best manga has to offer! 
$21 of $46 per month
Anime screenings aren’t usually covered by Lum & Vlord’s AMC A-List, meaning we usually doll out $15 dollars per person to see these movies - effectively costing us $30 to produce an episode of @ Movies. Reaching this tier will help us break-even on producing at least one episode of @ Movies every month!
