    • moritaka : A fun and promising start to a manga series centering around...well, manga

    Bakuman is a favorite of mine, and I've been looking forward to the release of this first book for a while! An artist myself, I've always been interested in the creation process of manga, so this series naturally grabbed my attention. Far from boring and pedantic (as some manga about manga are apt to be), it explores the inspirations and aspirations of two friends (and the almost courtly teenage love of the artist of the pair and his hopeful voice actress crush) as they work to accomplish their dreams. As expected of this author/artist pair (speaking of Ohba and Obata, but you know...), the art and storytelling are pretty, exciting, and funny. Its slice-of-life genre is a relief from all the popular fantasy shounen series. The translation and printing of the English book are extremely well-done as well, and, as an added bonus, at the end of each chapter they have the storyboards of one or two pages by both the writer and artist, a really fun and awesome treat!


  • A great masterpiece from the creators of Death Note; another masterpiece.
