First Impression: Bakuman.

Bakuman - 01

Autumn season anime has started about two weeks ago, I guess I have do some first impression posts on the titles that I’m going to watch for the season.

Better late than never, let start with – “Bakuman.”

The story is about the protagonist duo – talented artist, Mashiro Moritaka and aspiring writer, Takagi Akito who wish to become mangaka (Manga artist).

The episode started with a fake OP of Super Hero Legends! I was like WTHBBQ? But that was an awesome way to start it.

Mashiro Moritaka – He once dreamed to become mangaka, just like his uncle. But due to unknown reasons, he dropped the dream, and content to live a typical Japanese life, attending a university and become a salaryman.

A depressed protagonist huh… meh… I wish to have his drawing skill.

He discovered Moritaka’s talent as an artist, and he proposes that they work together to publish a manga.

“Manga is the national pride of Japan!”

But Moritaka denied his offer, because his uncle died (committing suicide??), because his job as a mangaka didn’t went well.

Indeed, if your story is not well received.. Well, it just failed..

The great part of this anime is the uniqueness of its plot. As this is a story about the teenagers working hard to become mangaka, thus it will certainly disclose how the anime/manga industry works.

As for the first episode, I really like the concept and how the story flows. 25 episodes for this show? Oh yes.

    I love this manga! You are sooo lucky to be able to
    see this Anime. I’ll keep an eye open to see if anybody
    places it online. I just find this interesting. it is different
    than the battle mangas and the romantic manga.
    I love the artwork on many of the manga and wish
    that I could draw. The artwork touches my heart.
