Storyline

Moritaka Mashiro, a junior high school student, content to live out a relatively normal life as any other does, is persuaded by his classmate, Akito Takagi, to become an aspiring mangaka when the latter realizes his natural talent as an artist. However, Moritaka is reluctant to pursue his dream as his uncle, once a mangaka with his own serializations, died from overwork trying to regain his lost status. With Akito's help, Takagi gets another classmate and his school crush, Azuki Miho, who is an aspiring voice actress, to voice in the anime adaptation of their future manga once it is completed. However, Mashiro also proposes to Azuki, who surprisingly accepts only on the condition she will marry him when both of them have achieved their dreams. With a goal set before him, Mashiro begins a long and struggling path to become a famous mangaka. Written by ANN

Tells a life of a manga artist/s in good detail!
8 June 2019 | by IrishchatterSee all my reviews

This anime series does absolutely open your eyes when it comes to becoming a manga artist and it can be tough alright! Like you're busy day and night to get a chapter done before the week ends. Also it is a lonely job when you have to be writing and drawing without going into the real world. I was shocked after watching bakuman that while researching about manga artists is that they don't get paid a lot which is ridiculous!! I mean they were the creators of that manga series in the first place so they wasted their valuable times on it? It's just so bad man, I couldn't believe it!I

I'm glad this anime was made for anime fans like myself in order to give lots of credit to the creators of their favourite animes. I do feel bad that I have criticised some animes art style from anime shows, however it's just my own personal opinion folks. I don't ever wish to defame any manga artist out there!I

If you need a sprinkle of reality in the manga/anime world, watch this anime. It's totally worth your time, it gets your head thinking too!
