I really felt bad for Nakia, he looked so sad!
& I love how Eiji even for a great manga artist, has flaws and Mashiro pointed them out :)
I really loved the outline of making a manga and the discussions.
I'm not disliking Eiji anyone, but I don't like him either. He's ok after this episode.
I want the 33 year old guy (Nakai) to succeed, I feel sorry for him.
The new Albino guy is quite the punk.
I noted that this show's character designs are really realistic, all characters so far have realistic hair color and it wouldn't look (that) strange in real life.
Was not expecting that change from Nizuma at the end. Seeing him with a slightly more down to earth character was a really nice change.
The way they explained the whole process in making a good manga makes a lot of sense. I can see people trying to make something through the use of just cool characters, but unless something is added to make it more interesting, it is bound for failure.
Quite a lovely episode, enjoyed the couple new characters and well it was quite a nice experience for Mashiro as well! It also seems Akito and Miyoshi are hitting it off quite good! He didn't appeared a lot but well his development is going steady as well!
This episode was the best yet, two interesting new characters with a lot of emotion and also some development from Eiji!! He is actually so likable for a rival! I'm so excited to see what happens, I wish that all of them could get serialized. The other (older) background assistant is really bringing a lot of heartfelt emotions into this anime; I love how they showed his talents.

The assistants are cool, love how everyone pulled together to help him out. I love when characters don't dick other people over who are trying to achieve the same dream as them, I mean the guy is really impressionable in such company and I'm happy they don't take advantage of it ^~^ Gives off a really good feel.
Amazing episode! This might be my favorite episode so far. Wow Mashiro is really helping Eiji like this?! This is awesome. I love their chemistry too (a bit better than Takagi tbh, but time will tell). Also I'm just now noticing how refreshing things are with 2 new characters. Another rival!
And I guess Nakai is an example of the failure that is possible for Mashiro. 33 years old being out done by kids half his age, crying himself to sleep wishing he could get serialized. It's a harsh reality but everybody can't be Oda.
