About Bakuman Manga Volume 1

Bakuman volume 1 features story by Tsugumi Ohba and art by Takeshi Obata.

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!

I've been wondering whether to give this manga a try for a while now. Learning about the manga making process seems interesting, if done right. With the latest Viz media sale I decided to give it a try and I have to say it was more interesting then I thought. It's more than just the process of making manga--it has a story to it. Within the story you learn a bit about the manga making process but not enough that your eyes cross over. It took me a few pages to get into this series. The main character, Moritaka Mashiro, takes awhile to jump on board with the other one and at first I wondered how'd these two could work together but in the middle their friendship takes off and so does the momentum of the story.

A Great Series for any beginning manga reader

From the creators of Death Note & Platinum End. This story of young creators trying to make a name in the world of a manga is a must have for any collection.
