THIS IS A MANGA ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS ANYTHING BEYOND THIS CHAPTER.
She performed naho's script from memory but she made a mistake, instead of white demon, she said black demon. and they were not going to over look this but right after the producer looked at the script and noticed that it was the script was wrong, not her. and few days later the result came in and she apparently won with a huge margin, there were over 200 thousand votes.
And this how it should look like :D I am glad that authors didn't try to make the autition longer. That was really good chapter and I am looking forward to see how the relationship between Mashiro and Miho develop.
BTW, the only part that really didn't work within this chapter was Saiko's reaction to the poll. It's exactly the same that they used for the announce of Reversi's anime, and it was so close to this same chapter that it looks like they just didn't know how to draw his happiness anymore. Too bad for this small "mistake" on their part, by reusing an old sequence. Damn, another kind of funny reaction and this would have been perfect.
So, I guess this means Azuki and Mashiro are getting married. It's nice that their dreams finally came true but I wonder what will happen to Bakuman now. I don't want it to end but I think it will get very boring after a while if it focuses only on manga and I don't want that either. Too bad it's so hard to find an interesting not over the top slice of life manga/anime. :-( I think it should end with them drawing amanga good for anime that would be more flexible than Reversi and they both would like it. That would be a much better closure than manga they know will end soon. I mean, Mashiro wants to marry, it would be much better for them both if they had a stable and popular series. I don't want Bakuman to end with Reversi! :-(
At last Miho got the role. She won by a landslide over 100k votes :D
I doubt that the series is gonna end soon I mean there still the rivalry between Ashirogi and Nizuma. Team Fudaka trying to catch up. There can be more romance moments in the manga now. There's Akino Aiko as well we haven't seen her in ages. Also Reversi can't be a long running manga they said so once its finished they'll have to make their new piece.
knowing the authors I thought that there was a chance that Miho wouldn't get the role, but I'm glad she did ^^ now I can't wait to see what's gonna happen next (probably more obstacles since Bakuman isn't the kind of manga where everything goes according to characters' wishes, it's unpredictable and surprising that's why I love it so much C : )
Thank God that in Bakuman everything is happening quickly so we don't have to wait for months to see the conclusion of the arc (like in Bleach where one battle lasts like 10 chapters xD)

haha so true xD ... but I wouldn't mind if they did XD
Well I was fooled there, when Azuki made a mistake I was like damn D: But well it ll worked out since it was not ;o
Well I guess they'll be a wedding soon, and as for the future of Bakuman, not sure if it will end soon, there's still Eiji vs Ashirogi Muto to be finished and all that. But as everyone says, they've reached there goal so does look like it will end. Either way it will be sad to see it go ;o
I was so nervous during the entire chapter... felt like I might as well have been Mashiro in his position... You know a manga is good when it can give you that feeling.
For people saying they think somethings going to happen to make them need to make a new series that wont end as quick as Reversi, think of Death Note, it was only 108 chapters but its one of the most amazing manga out there, like saying Ohba and Obata should have waited for a Bleach :p
And people saying that the manga is ending now, we're forgetting a character who hasn't shown up yet.. Azuki's dad. He's supposed to be protective enough to send his daughter to an all girl high school and move his family just so she could commute, how is he going to react to her getting married? I call them tying in getting #1 in jump above ZombieGun to prove his conviction
Ya know I just realized something. While I don't get when Mashiro and the gain ended up at 24-25 years-old, this sort of points out that Mashiro and Azuki worked 10 years for this since they made a promise to each other when they were 14.

That's 42.5% of all votes with a huge marging.
Someone's gonna accuse them for vote manipulation and cause another shitstorm to prolong their marriage.
I thought the same when the results were announced. With all the emphasis put on how it would be a battle between Azuki and those other three voice actresses in this chapter and the last, it is pretty hard to believe that Azuki would win by such a large margin... so yeah, someone will definitely complain, probably that Azuki-hater.

Read again what I wrote, I said "I think it should end with them drawing a manga good for anime that would be more flexible than Reversi and they both would like it.". PCP isn't fit for anime unlke Reversi. But Reversi is rather short living because of it's plot. I think the best moment to finish the manga (Bakuman) would be if they started drawing something that would be LONG LIVING and could become an ANIME. Possibly after they finish Reversi. I'm just trying to say tha this isn't a part of their life fitting enough for ending. They haven't overcome all of their problems with their manga. When they do, that's when it should end.
Very nice chapter, i loved that they didnt drag it out and this was of course the conclusion I (and i think most others) wanted. Sad news is Bakuman is probably ending, good news is Bakuman is probably ending :)
