  1. “Considering Mashiro’s ‘love’ for Miho is presented as being his biggest drive, it really bothers me that it’s so weak and artificial.” You made a name mistake in there. Thought I’d let you know!
    I like Bakuman. I don’t watch it for the relationship in it, I watch it for entertainment. That’s all I can really say!

    • I think you’ll find I haven’t made an error, I simply referred to Azuki by her first name, Miho.

      There are only two things I find entertaining about the show and that’s Hiramaru and Eiji, and they don’t get nearly enough screen-time for my liking!

  2. I agree, the romance and drama really bothers me till death. And don’t even mention Nakai or I’ll go crazy.

    Great that the manga-part is good, bad that it’s relying on shitty drama. Hate it hate it hate it.

    • II know you warned me not to but, I’m gonna anyway! >: D
      I actually liked, and felt sorry for, Nakai during series one- it was interesting to meet a character that lacked drive as a result of his previous failures, a nice contrast to all of the other Bakuman mangakas. But no, this series turned him into nothing more than a dirty lech…

    • Oh hey, haven’t seen you on my blog before! Welcome!
      Yes, I’ve heard the manga is far better, especially in terms of art which, by the looks of it, is stunning…

  3. The manga part of Bakuman isn’t good- the first season did the same thing over and over with it:
    Work really hard,
    Get excited,
    Get knocked down,
    Sulk,
    Then work hard again…
    It was so boring and their manga sucks! I hate Bakuman, it deserves to burn! Eiji for the win though!

    • Really? I found it very exciting. It has grown a bit stale in this season though. This is why I feel annoyed over the fact that the character interractions are so… shallow and dumb.

  4. I’ve seen complaints like these before, and the issues with women got to me quite a bit too. It’s a big part of why I had so much trouble reading it, since there are so many boneheaded aspects to it that it’s hard to work up the nerve to keep going.

  5. You couldn’t have described how mediocre this show really is in a better way. I’m a big fan of Tsugumi and Takeshi for coming up with Death Note, but Bakuman in my opinion is not only a failure but it’s also a major ”Let Down” for the numerous amount of fans that they gained with Death Note.
    But the good news is that they finally finished Bakuman and hopefully they’ll make something a lot more intriguing.

    • I’m glad that what I said resonated with you!

      The huge success of Death Note makes me wonder why Ohba and Obata didn’t just create another manga similar in genre to it. Perhaps they just wanted to try something new, develop their skills in other areas, but why abandon what is clearly a winning formula for them? I don’t know…
