To all the artists trying to make it in the industry, we salute you!
1 October 2018 | by ketsui_ipSee all my reviews

I read a few volumes of the manga years ago and everything amazed me to no end.

As an artist myself, I know how cruel this world can be to someone. From family who disapproves your choices to publishing companies closing their doors on your face, maybe one day you'll get a yes. But one yes differs from infinite success. You're in today and out tomorrow if you let it go to your head.

However, Bakuman won't keep you down. Don't give up on the things you love, make good friends, be honest and things will be fine.

The actors are good at pretending to draw. You can see they are drawing on top of a pre made artwork instead of mimicking. This is such a nice touch. Many American movies with painting scenes have an actor either waving their brushes in the air, far away from the canvas or a brush without ink. If you haven't noticed that, pay attention next time and you will see.

To me, things seemed a bit rushed in the beginning (the villain and the girl deserved extra screen time), but still, special effects, songs and photography made it worth watching. The director scrapped many things, but a two-hour movie needs concision.
