Bakuman

Takeshi Obata and Tsugumi Ohba know a thing or two about what it takes to make it big in the world of manga - they are the duo behind the global phenomenon of Death Note. For the follow-up, they turned to the industry that brought them fame, with a story about two aspiring manga creators. The resulting tale, Bakuman, is now a hit anime.

Akito is smart, confident and dreams of becoming a professional manga writer - he just needs an artist to work with. Mashiro has a gift with a pencil, but is not keen on the idea of a career in manga, having watched his uncle work himself to death in pursuit of a hit series. However, Akito is smitten with a girl in his class - Azuhi - who wants to become a professional voice actress, so Akito vows to become a successful mangaka to win her heart. Bakuman season one is out now from Kaze and Manga Entertainment.
