Manga Mavericks EP. 132: September 2020 News Roundup

Updated 4 months ago.

On this Manga Mavericks, its once again time for another news roundup, but this time we try something different! Instead of bogging down the episode with a huge slew of licenses that have been announced since the last time news was covered, Colton & Lum decide to each make their own short list of licenses that they're personally looking forward to seeing! Its a slight change in format compared to how the Mavericks normally report on news, but it gives them the time and energy to report on and discuss other more pressing matters like the recent statement from Amimaru regarding their questionable translation wages, the noticeable increase in other countries' need of legal streaming anime after the shut down of pirate site KissAnime and more!! Enjoy.
