[Anime of the Week] Bakuman! (1/16-22/2011)

Time for a series that has not completed yet! I just watched the recent episode and I'm glad this series is a full length one. I had started the manga but when the anime was announced I eminently dropped it because I tend to not like to watch what I'm reading.

Runtime: 24min/ep
# of Eps: 25
Type: manga
Rating: All ages (there's really nothing objectionable about it)
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.
