This manga is a simple, no deep thinking is needed. Well thats what are the weak but also the strong points. But lets go review. The story is that a aspiring young manga artist Inamine Kouta is trying his all to make his debut in the manga industry.

Story (8/10):
Story is not the strongest point of this manga but because this simpleness its also a good manga for people which don`t like to read manga with deep meanings.
But it doesn`t mean its a manga for simpletons. It evolves pretty quickly and there are many possibilities to make a even more addicted manga from read more

Koimoku is a relatively weird series, focusing on one aspiring mangaka by the name of Inamine Kouta. As he tries to achieve his lofty goal, what ensues is what was meant to be a touching story of human nature, and also morals, but it doesn't really reach those heights.

Story : 8
The story is relatively unique, but at the same time sort of cliche. It has a typical shounen style setup, with a MC having a dream, but failing repeatedly to achieve it. Then along his journey, he encounters a few friends who help him along, and also some setbacks, which he thoroughly brushes off with read more

I never tried to write a review for a manga, but ehh what the heck I'll bite. So anyways I'll start.

In these days of age, manga has become increasing popular, reeling in newer readers, we get drawn in with the art of each panel, the impact-full dialogues, and the imagination that blossoms in our mind when we dive into this comic world. We always eagerly await for the next chapter to release of our favorite manga, always keeping tab of everything the author is doing, and paying attention to the details within the works. We are in awe of how these people can create stories read more

I don't usually write reviews down here but I felt like I had to express my opinions for this one.

To put it short, I did not enjoy this manga.

Yes, the manga does have incredibly good looking art and the starting chapters were enough to get one interested in reading more of it. However, as the story kept progressing, it was as if the author was simply too up himself and started spouting ideals that were questionable, morally incorrect and down right confusing, frustrating and wrong. He tries to justify the views (specifically the female editor's) by adding in drama but ended up simply making the read more

Manga: Bakuman.
Koimoku is Bakuman with less detail on the manga creation process and more boobs. In spite of being an aggressive loser, the lead quickly finds himself with a harem as busty manga editors battle it out for his talents and inspire him by getting naked/letting him touch their boobies.

My favourite aspect of Koimoku is how a career woman walks around with her tits exposed, acts like a ditz and offers the lead ANYTHING he desires for the puposes of inspiration. The hooker the lead uses for first impressions of his work is realistic, also.

Manga: Unbalance x2
Well since these two titles have been made by the same mangaka they ahve very similar feel to them. The artwork is expectantly identical with great focus on the busty female characters.

Aside from the obvious similarities as stated earlier it also has less easily recognizable similarities

1. Both deal with an older woman and younger man romance and sexual situation
2. Both have characters that are frequently drawn to look insane and clinically dangerous for some reason
3. Both have a modern feeling (Unbalance X2 has a high school romance setting while Koimoku has a manga publishing company setting)
4. Both female  read more
