Discover the mystery of manga-making in the bestselling series by Tsugumi Ohba, the creator of the hit series DEATH NOTE, available for the first time in a complete box set.

Ohba's storytelling is fantastic. He made me care for the characters, and gave them each a distinct voice. His twists surprised me every time, even though this wasn't my first read of the series.His uncle, Nobuhiro Moritaka. Nobuhiro was a mangaka for "Shonen jump" himself, he knew that Manga wasn't a stable job, if your series loses fans and drops in the weekly rating poll done by fans, the editorial board can cancel your series and demand you deliver them 3 more chapters to wrap up the story and put it to a stop. Nobuhiro had a popular series in Shonen which was even turned into an anime, but eventually the weekly schedule and the pressure from getting canceled everytime his rating was lower then last week were to great for Nobuhiro which eventually committed suicide. This event left a mental scare in mashiro's mind and has kept him away from becoming a mangaka. This series is so heavily focused on the plot that some characters go chapters without so much as a mention. That's a shame because this series has some really, really strong characters. My favorite of the bunch, Hiramaru, has a ton of parts, so I can't complain too much. Then you have characters like Miho. I get it, they didn't want to spoil the feeling of innocent romance by shoving her in every chapter, but a bit more introspective dialogue or thoughts would have made me warm up to her character a bit more. This is less fiction (still is) as it is a behind the scenes of mangaka's life, and more specifically the famous Shonen JUMP magazine. (Not much of a fan myself, but I know someone who is and for whom this appeared therefore better than it was for me...)

Like I said some time, a long time ago, I'm only adding mangas when there's a reference for the full series or very few volumes, because otherwise my stats get messy. Also, I don't like reviewing them volume per volume as my opinion on them is on the whole thing rather than individual volumes.

By the creators of Death Note! The mystery behind manga-making revealed! This bestselling series is now available in a complete box set! Includes volumes 1 through 20, plus the bonus mini-comic “Otter No. 11” and a full-color, two-sided poster. A 20% savings over buying the individual volumes!Another thing that bothered me a bit was about all the mangas from the other authors. It was a lot of "it's more popular and better because we said so" rather than showing an actual potential manga. Like, for Ashirogi's mangas, they spent a lot of time talking about it so I could kinda picture something (I'd kill to read a TRAP or PCP manga) but most of the others, I could barely imagine what it would be like. Now comes reviewing the entire series. Let's get this out of the way first: Bakuman is dense. It's literally filled to the max with dialogue. So much so, that the artwork as barely any room to breathe sometimes. Is this a bad thing? Yes and no. The over abundance of dialogue makes the books feel LONG, so you shouldn't worry about getting your money's worth with this series. On the other hand, the over abundance of dialogue makes each book feel like an eternity in comparison to other series. Yes, I did REALLY enjoy my time with this series, but the dialogue and pacing was probably the biggest flaw. It's ironic, too, that this manga is about aspiring mangakas, and they frequently go over what makes a manga good or bad.
