    Like I said some time, a long time ago, I m only adding mangas when there s a reference for the full series or very few volumes, because otherwise my stats get messy Also, I don t like reviewing them volume per volume as my opinion on them is on the whole thing rather than individual volumes.That being said.Bakuman.Most people will know the authors better as the creators behind Death Note.This is less fiction still is as it is a behind the scenes of mangaka s life, andspecifically the f Like I said some time, a long time ago, I m only adding mangas when there s a reference for the full series or very few volumes, because otherwise my stats get messy Also, I don t like reviewing them volume per volume as my opinion on them is on the whole thing rather than individual volumes.That being said.Bakuman.Most people will know the authors better as the creators behind Death Note.This is less fiction still is as it is a behind the scenes of mangaka s life, andspecifically the famous Shonen JUMP magazine Not much of a fan myself, but I know someone who is and for whom this appeared therefore better than it was for me As a whole, I really enjoyed it, the story is fascinating, the actual facts on JUMP are interesting, but what I liked best are the characters which you get attached to easily Except for two that kept getting on my nerves, that is Iwase and then Nanamine These two, I could have done without However, there were bits I had a harder time going through, and I think it went good only because I had the whole series already to read instead of waiting for the next volume for a few months More specifically, the very beginning as I feel like it only picked up a good pace once Niizuma and then the whole Fukuda clan were there Niizuma is my favorite character in the series by far, but the hilarious scenes brought by Hiramaru were priceless too But the part I really didn t enjoy was around volumes 14 to 18 with Nanamine I found them super boring compared to the rest, although the topic they brought was interesting.Also, one thing I want to point out is the lack of female characters And let s not talk about the live action adaptation which succeeds in doing even worse by keeping ONE female character The adaptation is good though, but yeah, this point was bothering me a lot There s basically 5 female characters in the whole thing not counting those like Azuki s sis because they don t contribute much to the story , including one that could have been a male Iwase and the story would have been the exact same as she s just here as afaire valoirand then gets dropped off almost entirely, and another that only serves in the tragic backstory part Also not talking about the last volume that brings 10 at once just for the sake of it, and made it feel like the authors went here, now we reached our quota.Another thing that bothered me a bit was about all the mangas from the other authors It was a lot of it spopular and better because we said so rather than showing an actual potential manga Like, for Ashirogi s mangas, they spent a lot of time talking about it so I could kinda picture something I d kill to read a TRAP or PCP manga but most of the others, I could barely imagine what it would be like.Still, despite what I didn t like about it, it s a series I d definitely recommend Especially for those who love all JUMP s huge hits One Piece, Naruto, etc orrecently Demons Slayer, you know them all

    First of all, the reason the review is on the boxset is because this is a Manga The Japanese equivalent of a comic book it has fewer words and is significantly shorter per book in compression with a novel, so to compensate for that I read the entire series and my review is a general review of the series as a whole.ACTUAL REVIEW The setting is Japan during current times and the protagonist is Mashiro Moritaka Mashiro is a highschool student who excels in drawing and is a fan of Manga and anime First of all, the reason the review is on the boxset is because this is a Manga The Japanese equivalent of a comic book it has fewer words and is significantly shorter per book in compression with a novel, so to compensate for that I read the entire series and my review is a general review of the series as a whole.ACTUAL REVIEW The setting is Japan during current times and the protagonist is Mashiro Moritaka Mashiro is a highschool student who excels in drawing and is a fan of Manga and anime a TV show based off a Manga, may be completely orignal on rare occasions His dream is to become a mangaka, a person who creates Manga either a writer or illustrator or both He specifically wants to become a mangaka for a weekly magazine called Shonen jump the most popular Manga magazine in the world this is also true for real life Unfortunately for Mashiro, 3 things are denying him from achieving his dream 1 He is still in school, publishing a Manga in Weekly Shonen jump the standard Shonen jump magazine means he needs to create an issue of Manga every week on a strict time limit and have enough time left to fix issues if the editor in charge of him finds any.2 His uncle, Nobuhiro Moritaka Nobuhiro was a mangaka for Shonen jump himself, he knew that Manga wasn t a stable job, if your series loses fans and drops in the weekly rating poll done by fans, the editorial board can cancel your series and demand you deliver them 3chapters to wrap up the story and put it to a stop Nobuhiro had a popular series in Shonen which was even turned into an anime, but eventually the weekly schedule and the pressure from getting canceled everytime his rating was lower then last week were to great for Nobuhiro which eventually committed suicide This event left a mental scare in mashiro s mind and has kept him away from becoming a mangaka.3.He can t write as in being an author create a story As important as it is to have good drawing and art style in your Manga, it all doesn t matter if its completely boring Mashiro isn t an author and therefore can t become a good mangaka.One day, a classmate finds a notebook Mashiro left behind, a notebook full of random sketches and drawings Takagi Akito, Mashiro s classmate and a personal Manga Anime fan himself When Mashiro goes back to his classroom at the end of the schoolday after remembering he forgot his sketch book there, Mashiro an Takagi meet Takagi complements Mashiro s drawing saying that with a bit of practice he could become professional, Akito also reveals himself to be a fantastic author who can t draw anything but wants to become a mangaka With some talking and convincing, Takagi semi gets Mashiro to agree, the final push to make Mashiro chase his dream still wasn t there, and Takagi noticed this To force Mashiro into a place where all he could care about was Manga and becoming a Mangaka for Shonen jump Takagi gives Mashiro some intel He tells Mashiro that Azuki Miho s dream is to become a voice actress Azuki has been Mashiro s crush ever since he remembers himself, and this information pushes Mashiro to an edge, he realizes that if he becomes popular enough and make his dream come true his Manga will become and anime and anime needs voice actors, and if Azuki chases her dream and becomes good at voice acting she could voice the heroine in his very own show Filled with excitement and unexplained feelings he and Takagi head straight for Azuki s house Mashiro rings the bell and Azuki comes to the front door to great him, Mashiro doesn t exactly understand why he came to her house to announce this and together with the fact that he is standing in front of his crush he kinda panics He mumbles about how he is going to chase his dream and make an Manga so popluer it ll eventually be an anime and that he d like her to be the heroine in his anime This also inspires Azuki who says she ll be delighted to do so and promises she will also begin to chase her dream Hearing this makes Mashiro lose his nerve and he exclaims So when are dreams come true, will you merry me This makes everyone silent, Takagi surprised by the sudden proposal and so is Azuki Mashiro realizes what he had just done and as he s about to take what he said back she responds Yes Azuki reveals that Mashiro was her crush for a long time as well and that she agrees to the proposal of getting married once their dreams come true This was the final push Mashiro needed to convince himself to become a mangaka and leave all his worries behind, his grades in school, his uncles suicide, and now that he has Takagi by his side the writing is no longer an issue Together they go forward towards achieving their dreams and fighting the hardships along the way.The quote I choose is the one I mentioned earlier so when our dreams come true, will you marry me It s the trigger for EVERYTHING in this series, which is why everything I wrote before in the review has to do with this quote, Mashiro would have never chased his dream, the same dream that was denied from the various reasons I mentioned, the same dream he couldn t achieve without Takagi being a good author and meeting Mashiro, the same dream which would have never happened if Mashiro wouldn t have gone to Azuki s house and rang the bell The quote has to do with all of them in a direct way, at least that s how I see it from my prospective, which is why I choose this quote So when are dreams come true, will you marry me

    I know that working in the manga world can be harsh I m even aware of how it s literally killed people That s why I never read through Bakuman published in English by Viz until just now And wow where has this been all my life Bakuman stars Moritaka Mashiro, whose uncle died from overworking during his manga career However, when he leaves his notebook at school one day, a starving writer named Akito Takagi sees it, and says that they should make a manga together He refuses until the girl I know that working in the manga world can be harsh I m even aware of how it s literally killed people That s why I never read through Bakuman published in English by Viz until just now And wow where has this been all my life Bakuman stars Moritaka Mashiro, whose uncle died from overworking during his manga career However, when he leaves his notebook at school one day, a starving writer named Akito Takagi sees it, and says that they should make a manga together He refuses until the girl he likes, Miho Azuki, who s trying to become an anime voice actor, promises to star in the anime of their manga And just like that, boom End goal established Despite my dislike of slice of life manga, I have to admit Bakuman does pretty much everything right The story is fun and engaging, plus the characters are very expressive and have great personalitieson that later, though Despite the fact that Mashiro s uncle died from overwork, which is a real life problem in Japan s society, the manga is pretty lighthearted for the most part.Naturally, the big appeal of Bakuman is its theme manga publishing This is one time where I ll admit that I enjoyed something because I related to the characters, even though I hate factoring that into the actual final score of the story Since they re publishing manga, the characters of Bakuman spend a lot of time talking about all the topics that I think about everyday tropes, marketing, mass appeal, and taking risks.The cast is also surprisingly good One of the biggest problems I have with slice of life is that writers seem to think that characters need to have dull expressions and no interesting personality quirks in order to seemhuman, which isn t really true The characters in Bakuman are human done right While Mashiro is a bit generic, he s at least very expressive, along with everyone else I knew that Takagi was going to be my fav the moment I saw him he s just so aloof yet driven They work with one of two editors at any given time Akira Hattori and Goro Miura Although the latter is inexperienced as an editor, they both genuinely care about Mashiro and Takagi s careers There are also a number of rivals in Bakuman My favorite is Eiji Nizuma, who is a true prodigy, but is a total eccentric He doesn t seem to take his job seriously, or even know how Jump works, and he just draws whatever he wants and leaves the pages neatly lying on the floor He also walks in Jojo poses, which you need to see in order to believe Along with him are the brash Fukuda and the terminally antisocial Hiramaru, among other people Although they re competitors, they re also good friends, and their chemistry with each other brings out the absolute best in all of them.My least favorite characters are probably the two main characters love interests, the aforementioned Miho, and Takagi s girl, Kaya Miyoshi They re good girls Miyoshi s the better of the two, though , but they kind of exist just for moral support Sure, Miho has plot relevance, but you don t really get to see her progress that much you only see the results.Now for the art Holy crap I think that is the best art Obata has ever provided Sure, Bakuman isn t as detailed or complex as Death Note or shudders Platinum Freaking End, but it brings the atmosphere of Bakuman and it s characters to life Also, he has to draw his own characters manga, which each have their own styles This really showcases what an absolute mastermind of art Obata is, and I have the utmost respect for him If you re a fan ofchill, CGDCT type stuff, then Bakuman s cartoony art style will likely be a turn off for you.My one real complaint with Bakuman is the fact that the protagonists want an anime so badly I get that there s a specific context behind why they want to get an anime of their manga, but as someone who s seen so many great works get horrible anime adaptations, I couldn t help but cringe, especially since their storytelling style is just the kind of unconventional stuff that can only work in the manga medium This whole thing is a big nitpick of mine, which is why it won t affect the final score at all Final Verdict 9.75 10Bakuman is the best manga by the Ohba Obata team Yeah, I just said that Everything about it is top top notch I highly recommend it to anyone who loves manga in general, and heck, probably those who love anime too

    To be able to create a typical Shonen story while not including any of the typical action synonymous with the category is a talent this duo are well known for by now but still you would be hard pressed to find anyone else able to make a story about two teenagers creating manga this exciting that it feels like a typical Shonen story Definitely recommend this, however I find the tv series eveninteresting as they took some liberties by bringing to life some of the stories created by the To be able to create a typical Shonen story while not including any of the typical action synonymous with the category is a talent this duo are well known for by now but still you would be hard pressed to find anyone else able to make a story about two teenagers creating manga this exciting that it feels like a typical Shonen story Definitely recommend this, however I find the tv series eveninteresting as they took some liberties by bringing to life some of the stories created by the people in the series

    I think life and manga are the same You re given a certain amount of time for both It d be a week for a weekly manga And it d be until you die for your life You have to do your best job possible within that given time That s why you can t cut corners It s the same for both your life and with manga If you want to do a good job, you need to have conceit and luckbut the most important thing of allis hard work Also stamina, will powerand last but not least, guts Don t I think life and manga are the same You re given a certain amount of time for both It d be a week for a weekly manga And it d be until you die for your life You have to do your best job possible within that given time That s why you can t cut corners It s the same for both your life and with manga If you want to do a good job, you need to have conceit and luckbut the most important thing of allis hard work Also stamina, will powerand last but not least, guts Don t give up on your dreams make them happen yourself That s what Mashiro and Takagi, as well as numerous other characters in this series, do It s all or nothing in life or in manga You may be feeling right now that you re not even close to your goal and that maybe you should just settle for less Or perhaps you ve been trying but still feel so far away This series can encourage you get back up and try, try againthan any other fictional story I ve ever heard of Perhaps that s because much of it is derived from things that really happen This is the inside scoop on what it s really like to create manga, right from the horse s mouth, and so nothing about the real difficulty of pursuing a dream is glossed over In fact, it takes Mashiro and Takagi 10 years to achieve theirs For others, it will take longer But I think the basic premise of the story is Never give up, no matter what.And it s not about pushing others down, either Mashiro and Takagi discover others like themselves and join in friendly and good natured competition that only spurs them on to do better than ever That was something I really appreciated when reading this book I m not competitive at all in fact, if I find someone is competing with me in something, I usually quit And so, while it was at times baffling to me, this series opened my eyes to a different kind of competition one that can be discouraging and frustrating at times, but that yields the best sort of results, both in your work and in your friendships True, everyone is different And you re going to run into people who have a bad attitude, which sometimes happens in this series as well But this is the right kind of competition Don t be discouraged by the talents of your rivals let them drive you to do better and you may find a friend in the process As you would expect of Ohba Tsugumi and Obata Takeshi, we have our funky genius character to liven things up a bit, as well as a host of other wonderful kinds of characters, including the main character, who is very likeable as well The artwork is, of course, fantastic, and often extremely busy I got the impression that the authors were trying to show you all the different kinds of things you could do with manga, as that is what the story is about.This is only my third manga, and it was the first to bring me to tears I also laughedin this manga than in the previous two that I read All in all, I d say to anyone who had their doubts about the blood, sweat, and tears that go into creating manga, read this If you re still not convinced after you read it, then you probably never will be

    The fact that I managed to devour Bakuman s complete collection of twenty volumes within a single month is a testament to the quality of this series Not only do these books contain an addictive continuous narrative, they are also populated with a cast of truly engaging characters who exhibit the full spectrum of human attributes and endearing qualities The insight to the world of Japanese manga publishing is fascinating, and references to fiction within fiction, through the titles created by c The fact that I managed to devour Bakuman s complete collection of twenty volumes within a single month is a testament to the quality of this series Not only do these books contain an addictive continuous narrative, they are also populated with a cast of truly engaging characters who exhibit the full spectrum of human attributes and endearing qualities The insight to the world of Japanese manga publishing is fascinating, and references to fiction within fiction, through the titles created by characters in the story, are a joy to stumble upon Many of the clever series outlines are worthy of a full series themselves, yet they are not too focused upon so as to detract from the main story rather they serve to add some believability and depth to the world we are presented I found myself laughing through numerous pages, being warmed by the heartfelt camaraderie between characters and thrilled by suspense in rivalries and obstacles which the main characters face The quality of Takeshi Obata s artwork verges on the unbelievable at times he portrays the emotions of characters and situations with such fluidity and skill that scenarios feel real and part of our world At times he also expertly injects such exaggerated caricatures of his characters that they are hilarious in of themselves, yet the timing and use of these amidst other panels accentuates the characters very real feelings and truly communicates the sense of story aiding the visual style not exclusively for comedy, but also in a range of situations Bakuman will undoubtedly be compared to Death Note, as it is the second series collaboration by the same team of writer and illustrator The two works are so completely opposing in style and content that such a comparison is useless, yet I feel that while Death Note was nearly perfect, this newer series is so well fleshed out, clever and entertaining that it is even better For one thing, the lighter style of story which is employed throughout Bakuman is one that doesn t rely so much on twists and reveals It will be a pleasure to re read again and again Especially those parts featuring the hilarious Hiramaru
