BAKUMAN not BAKUGAN. Bakuman is amazing cuz it shows people the more realistic side of making a manga in a more dramatic/romantic setting. Think about it, how do u think mangakas r able to produce a chapter each week without breaks or anything. The protagonists go through a lot of stress not only from the deadlines, but from things like being on top as well there is romance and rivalries to spice up the story. I personally really enjoy this manga and can't wait for the anime to come out.

It's a manga about manga-kas who struggle to get their works in jump and other comic magazines.

Though, I got bored of it because there are too much dialouges, you really get weary of reading it.

What it made it popular too is that the author of the manga also authored Death Note, so the characters pretty much look alike.

I don't know what makes it good but it's the first time I've read a manga about manga so it's new to me. The story about a boy striving to be a well-known mangaka, this perked my interest.

Nothing. Well, that's not entirely true, it did start out rather well, but it quickly fell into a downward spiral. Aside from being terribly repetitive, it has poor, one-dimensional character development, a consistent, yet often unnecessary "we can win if we try" attitude, and the only factor that really changes are the ages of the characters. The popularity of the mangaka is the only thing keeping Bakuman alive. I would not doubt if the end of the manga coincided with the end of the anime, because I don't see this pulling off another long running shounen, let alone a successful one.

tl;dr : The anime will be boring.

BAKUMAN is not that amazing compared to everything else out there but it is an outstanding story. It shows what mangaka's need to go through to break out and become a weekly running series, and what "hoops" they need to jump through to produce the manga series that we read today. I noticed that it's following the current trend of slice-of-life, school life, "able to become live action" type of manga. (i.e. K-on, & Beck)

It shows how a manga starts out, what decides how long it's run in the magazine, and why it gets canceled. It's to give us a better perspective why mangaka's go on hiatus, and leave us waiting for a story for so long. They may just need a break to think of what comes next or they may end up in a hospital bed from an accident; and all we would know is that the series is on hiatus and we need to wait till next week to find out what happens next.

As for the anime: I don't think it would last more than 2 seasons but I want to find out who they would pick as the voice actors. That's what I wait for when they make a manga in to an anime

You see that's what I really like about it. There's a lot of interesting dialogue that gives a whole load of information on the characters, their lives and the manga industry.

I think it's especially awesome to anime fans because you get so much information about how some of our favourite shows come together. It's kind of like a making of video but with it's own engaging storyline and characters.

It gives you the general idea how Manga industry work and the lifestyle that Mangakas has to endure.

Well, I haven't watched it, but I did read to at least chapter 130. It was good, but I did get a little bored because they didn't progress as much as I hoped. Though the characters were enjoyable xD
