As Spring Season for 2014 comes to a close and I start to reflect back at the series I followed, there will be a handful of series that will be memorable. Such a series as Mangaka-san to Assistant-san to The Animation that will be a part of the few series I will most definitely remember. It has been a long time where I have came across an anime that is extremely hilarious and to have me in hysterics multiple times in one sitting, and all it takes you might ask? All it takes is 13 minutes. This is hands down the best comedy series of read more

Welcome to the 13 minute classic - Mangaka-san to Assist-san to The Animation.

Story: 7/10
The story in itself isn't anything special, of course. It follows the perverted, young mangaka Aito Yuuki, which, because of his lack of zeal, is about to miss the deadline once again.
The story is pure comedy, so I don't really mind if its not worked out perfectly.

Art: 7/10
Cute character designs, as well as good backgrounds and just as good animations definitely help making a good anime. Just like in this case. The colors are lively, the qualitiy is consistent, nothing to rant about.

Sound: 8/10

Both are anime about a mangaka and his assistant(s) but Mangaka-san is more ecchi.
Both involves MC who are into manga.

Both also involves an MC who has a rather peculiar attitude.

Both have a short duration time.


One was more of a shojo type while the other was more on ecchi.

One anime was more of a gag type of comedy, while the other one was more of an ecchi type of comedy.
