Storyline

Moritaka Mashiro, a junior high school student, content to live out a relatively normal life as any other does, is persuaded by his classmate, Akito Takagi, to become an aspiring mangaka when the latter realizes his natural talent as an artist. However, Moritaka is reluctant to pursue his dream as his uncle, once a mangaka with his own serializations, died from overwork trying to regain his lost status. With Akito's help, Takagi gets another classmate and his school crush, Azuki Miho, who is an aspiring voice actress, to voice in the anime adaptation of their future manga once it is completed. However, Mashiro also proposes to Azuki, who surprisingly accepts only on the condition she will marry him when both of them have achieved their dreams. With a goal set before him, Mashiro begins a long and struggling path to become a famous mangaka. Written by ANN

Awesome anime
16 June 2012 | by pras666See all my reviews

This is one of the best anime I have ever watched! The story is very unique. Its made by the creators of Death Note, and I say they have made another master piece! I watched the first season and the second season, I couldn't stop so I read the manga and finished it! This is an anime about anime, the idea itself bothered me at first so I was not very enthusiastic to watch it, I am so glad I did, just the first episode was enough, you just won't stop watching! It has romance, comedy and its slice of life! The best slice of life anime I have seen. I'd give a 8 for the art, 9 for the story! Also the opening and closing song was very good! I highly recommend this anime to be watched!

Even though i finished the manga, I'm still excited to watch the third season of this anime! The story follows the lives of Moritaka Mashiro and Akito Takagi as they strive to be manga artists. I would have given this anime a 10/10 but only one problem the plot twists are pretty weak compared to Death Note but despite this it is still amazing! I highly recommend you to watch this, you won't regret this if you are an anime fan! You will learn a lot about manga. I became inspired to draw because of this series, I'm not very good but I won't give up. This anime taught me that I can always improve, even when I think I'm the best, I can still become better. Two thumbs up for this anime!!!
