From the same mangaka that brought us Death Note comes an anime airing this season based on the manga Bakuman.
The story is about two high school students that aim to become mangaka. One of them writes the story while the other does the drawing. There’s also a promise involving one of them getting married to his crush if he achieves his dream of becoming a mangaka and she achieves her dream of becoming a seiyuu, but they aren’t allowed to meet each other until then. How’s that for a first meeting?
Since I read the manga before, I knew the series would be worth watching if they don’t somehow completely screw up the adaptation. From what I’ve seen so far though, I expect Bakuman to be one of the solid “good” series this season.
As an added bonus, there’s already a direct reference to Death Note in the first episode.
Rating: Very Good
