Bakuman Season 2

Good timing. I just finished watching the first season, so it’s nice to know that I’ll still have some Bakuman every week. I didn’t care much for this anime at first, as I said earlier, but I’m very glad my girl kept nagging me about it.

The artwork is still as good as ever, quite reassuring. As for the story goes; wow. It’s getting better now that their manga has been serialized. They are meeting new people, getting new assignments, their own staff and new upcoming goals. I can’t wait for the next episode. I’ll say it again; I recommend this anime strongly!

Plot Summary: 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.
