This is my review for the whole bakuman series. I mean all the three seasons of bakuman which sums up to a total of 75 episodes.

OK so first things first. This was an anime with high ratings here in MAL but don't expect too much about this show if you are new to anime. This wasn't your typical action packed anime, this was an anime about the anime/manga industry. So that's the reason why many loved it(including me). Of course many anime lovers want to know more about manga/anime, how it works on its motherland -- JAPAN.

So we've seen some anime/manga characters that are mangaka(manga read more

'Bakuman.'
The true meaning of the title was never revealed, but most speculators believe it's short for 'BAKUchi MANga.' (Gambling Manga). It is a simple tale of two middle school guys setting out to become professional manga artists. The story progresses like any other sports or music anime, where ordinary guys aim for the top, facing many challenges and rivals on the way. However, I consider this to be the greatest shounen/seishun (coming of age) genre anime I have ever encountered, because it analyzes what makes a manga good in a coherent way, and more importantly, it practices what it preaches.

Recommendations

Both of them are about people setting goals and trying to achieve them. They are great and make me feel warm and fuzzy inside. You will find nothing like this on american tv.
Both are about 'normal' teens who are following the dream to become the best at something.
Both have elements of comedy, romance, slice of life, drama.
Both have great characters (some of them genius at what they do), with lots of friends and rivals.
