Bakuman 3 is a great continuation of the series. I enjoyed watching it and I can definitely say that it will be worth your time as well. Here's the review.

Story is a 9.

As with the previous season, it hasn't lost it's edge on story telling and pacing. It's easy to follow and easy to understand. My only issues are some arcs are a bit uninteresting and unfulfilling, like the Nanamine arc.

Art is 10.

Great art as always. Proper visual effects, no awkward animations or anything etc. Pleasing to watch, I should say.

Sound is 9.

Good soundtrack and proper voice acting. OP/ED were not really anything special read more

Bakuman 3 picks up at where the previous season ended. The quality didn't drop at all, it's as awesome as the 2nd Season and better than the 3rd. I've watched 5 episodes and given the circumstances of this anime (3rd Season) I'm sure that I can give it a worthy review.

Story (10)
The story is still great with the usual pacing style of the previous seasons. There's just something very addicting in the pacing of the story, it feels like no second is wasted at every episode. Each one brings something new to the story, good news and more hurdles at the end of the episode. read more

Let's get things straight - this series is amazingly good. I want you to have that in mind as you read on since I would like to write about all 3 seasons and not just this one - I would like to sum up my experiences with the entire package.

This whole adventure started when two men decided to share their dream (albeit for a different reason) and follow it through no matter what obstacles they face with their unwavering resolve. What followed was one of the best plot-driven stories I had the pleasure of enjoying.

I should start by pointing out that for me there read more

Dreams are hard to follow and even harder to make them come true. Whether it's getting securing your ideal job, marrying someone you always admired, or becoming a superstar, dreams require many ingredients to make it come true. It requires hard work, determination, motivation, creativity, and even a little luck. Yet, when people follows these dreams, it can be surprising on how much they realize about their goal and about themselves. In Bakuman 3, the series follows two best friends who hopes to achieve their dreams and become professional manga artists.

Ahh, Bakuman once again returns as the third installation of this trilogy, known as Bakuman read more

I think these shows are similar because they are both about passion and pursuing dreams. They both follow a realistic slice of life style with relationships and friendships evolving over time. Although the topics are very different, they are similar in the way they instantly hook you regardless of your prior preferences and by the end, you'll end up with a new appreciation of the topic, which in my opinion is the mark of a great anime.
Both anime is about chasing dream from youngest years.
Both enjoy to watch at the same level.
Similar characters.
Both series are created by the same author (in original manga form). Although they aren't the same genre the main characters are both very good developed. Both main characters want to achieve their goal although the goals themselves are totally different. The way they handel the situation they come in is very similar, they treat them with pure logic. If you like main characters who are total geniuses and would do anythhing in order to achieve their goals, than these series are for you!
These are two completely different series that share, however, a somewhat similar way to deal with friendship and human relationships. I personally think that even though the plots have nothing in common and Durarara's story contains mystery and avant-garde elements, while Bakuman focus on two young men's dream of becoming professional mangaka. In Bakuman 3 the set is a bit different already. Nevertheless, I would challenge fans of both Durarara and the Bakuman universe to get to know both series (and also the amazing manga of Bakuman).
