My Review Of Bakuman Manga
Author: Tsugumi Obha
Art: Takeshi Obata
Bakuman is a real aspiring manga written by Tsugumi Obha and art was done by Takeshi Obata the famous duo who gave us the award winning manga Death Note, published by Weekly Shonen Jump from 2008 to 2012.
First of all, I like to say to all that Bakuman was the first manga I read which immediately made me a fan of manga and started my manga journey .
the story is simple like all “slice of life” manga’s except with a twist. It tells the story of Mashiro Moritaka aka Saiko a boy unplanned and undecided about life like most youth in today’s modern society and Takagi Akito aka Shujin a top ranking student who wants to be an aspiring writer for manga and comics .
the main story involves Saiko’s love affair with a fellow student Azuki Miho and both Saiko’s and Shujin’s partnership and their journey to becoming successful mangaka’s which spans to a period of 5 years.
it is based on true accounts and hardships people go through to become a mangaka or any comic illustrator in life .
What I liked most about Bakuman was its inspiring storyline and the caption that people should follow their dreams no matter what ,something that many people need to know in today’s society
About the art, Takeshi Obata proves himself well that he can draw any gene well art is spot on and matches well with the emotions the story portrays especially the romance and comedy parts.
In the end, Bakuman is a really good manga for all age groups, entertaining ,informative and the story and humour is well balanced and am proud to say it inspired me to follow my dreams likewise I believe it has inspired many others
