Onto their third serialization, manga duo Moritaka Mashiro and Akito Takagi—also known by their pen name, Muto Ashirogi—are ever closer to their dream of an anime adaption. However, the real challenge is only just beginning: if they are unable to compete with the artist Eiji Niizuma in the rankings within the span of six months, they will be canceled. To top it off, numerous rivals are close behind and declaring war. They don't even have enough time to spare thinking about an anime! In Bakuman. 3rd Season, Muto Ashirogi must find a way to stay atop the colossal mountain known as the Shounen Jack rankings. With new problems and new assistants, the pair continue to strive for their dream.

Go watch seasons 1 and 2 and then watch this and enjoy your life. Bakuman is a great ride!


Made me fall in love with manga and their creators even more!!!


Overflowing passion for its subject material + an honest portrayal of its characters results in a heartfelt story about pursuing your dream.


Gud shit


First half felt a bit weak, but the second half redeemed it. Watching the series come to a fulfilling conclusion was very refreshing!


A closed ending for an awesome anime. Not something you’d expect from anime.


With the focus on Ashirogi vs. Nizuma, the series really shines and while the ending left me wanting more, it was still very great overall.



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