Book Description

2 Sep 2010 Bakuman (Book 1)
Average student Moritaka Mashiro enjoys drawing for fun. When his classmate and aspiring writer Akito Takagi discovers his talent, he begs Moritaka to team up with him as a manga-creating duo. But what exactly does it take to make it in the manga-publishing world? Moritaka is hesitant to seriously consider Akito's proposal because he knows how difficult reaching the professional level can be. Still, encouragement from persistent Akito and motivation from his crush push Moritaka to test his limits!

5.0 out of 5 stars Glad I bought it! 28 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I saw a good review of this book and had some change spare.. So I went for it... From the creators of Death Note Bakuman once again is a manga hit! It's interesting to see the process between making a manga etc.. and the story of it is just plain fun! I recommend anyone to try it, or at least look at a video review on YouTube.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Brilliant Read 27 April 2013
By Nikoran
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bakuman shows us the story of two young, aspiring manga artists trying to hit it big in the famous Shonen Jump. It follows their triumphs and their many fails. It goes into great detail on the different categories and how to make the best piece of work out there. It is done by the same duo who created Death Note and they do a great job again with this series. Definitely a must if you enjoy slice of life mangas or are interested in how manga artists and writers create manga.
