Average Rating

With the serialization of their new manga, "Detective Trap," the writer-artist team, Akito Takagi and Moritaka Mashiro, better known by their pseudonym Muto Ashirogi, are one step closer to becoming world-renowned mangaka. For Mashiro, however, serialization is just the first step. Having promised to marry his childhood sweetheart and aspiring voice actress, Azuki Miho, once his manga gets an anime adaptation, Mashiro must continue his to popularize Ashirogi's work. A tremendously competitive cast of ambitious mangaka—including the wild genius, Eiji Niizuma; the elegant student, Yuriko Aoki, and her older admirer and partner, Takurou Nakai; the lazy prodigy, Kazuya Hiramaru; and the abrasive artist, Shinta Fukuda—both support and compete against Muto Ashirogi in creating the next big hit. As they adjust to their young and seemingly untested new editor, the dynamic duo struggle to maintain their current serialization, secure the top stop in Shounen Jack, and ultimately, achieve an anime adaptation of their manga. With new rivals and friends, Bakuman. 2nd Season continues Takagi and Mashiro's inspiring story of hard work and young love.

Very good concept. An anime about manga writers trying to get an anime! With action, romance, drama, and comedy! A character for everyone.


Season 2 is more of greatness. Really, everyone needs to watch this series. You will learn how hard being a mangaka really is.


This season did really well at evoking the same feelings the protagonists had toward other characters from the viewer. Frustrating at times.


still loving this one


Очень парадоксальная ситуация. Затягивают сильнее, при этом интерес не угасает.


More of the first season. Not a bad thing though. In fact I would consider this the best season of the three. PCP BABY!!!!!.


Bakuman is back and at it again, this time with more serializations. Can the boys succeed and get an anime made? Find out in this season!



    Revenge? Nah. I'm too lazy so I will just sit here and let karma fuck your life up
