Synopsis

With the serialization of their new manga, "Detective Trap," the writer-artist team, Akito Takagi and Moritaka Mashiro, better known by their pseudonym Ashirogi Muto, are one step closer to becoming world-renowned mangaka. For Mashiro, however, serialization is just the first step. Having promised to marry his childhood sweetheart and aspiring voice actress, Azuki Miho, once his manga gets an anime adaptation, Mashiro must continue his to popularize Ashirogi's work. A tremendously competitive cast of ambitious mangaka—including the wild genius, Eiji Niizuma; the elegant student, Yuriko Aoki, and her older admirer and partner, Takurou Nakai; the lazy prodigy, Kazuya Hiramaru; and the abrasive artist, Shinta Fukuda—both support and compete against Ashirogi Muto in creating the next big hit.

As they adjust to their young and seemingly untested new editor, the dynamic duo struggle to maintain their current serialization, secure the top stop in Shounen Jack, and ultimately, achieve an anime adaptation of their manga. With new rivals and friends, Bakuman. 2nd Season continues Takagi and Mashiro's inspiring story of hard work and young love.

Overall I give Bakuman season 2 a 10! Maybe I'm just biased, but to me it deserves it.

If you enjoyed Bakuman Season 1 then you MUST See Bakuman Season 2, anyone who enjoyed Bakuman Season 1 as much as I should agree with my rating of 10 for season 2.

Some anime's are good, and their second seasons are just a drag, but with Bakuman, season 1 was great and season 2 is even better! The story continues from season 1, even after season 1 I wanted to see what happened next and I still feel the same now in season 2 at episode 6.

They say you can measure how good a anime is by how fast time seems to fly by when watching it, if that's the case, Bakuman 2 is one amazing series.

The first season of Bakuman was great, the story, the characters, the atmosphere fitted perfectly, though It did suffer from pacing problems and could of been adapted better. This time however, J.C Staff has stepped up their game, managing to fix those problems and make Bakuman 2 one hell of a enjoyable anime and probably the best slice-of-life series I've seen yet.

Please note that this is only a quick review about the start of the second season of Bakuman. After watching the second episode I had so much I wanted to tell everyone it had to be done through a review.

I'll skip right to the interesting part, this series has totally sucked me in. The first season was all fantastic and really something else the whole way. Luckily, this isn't something that's about to change. It's actually on the contrary, these two episodes have made their way and are actually starting to already top their predecessor.

Although I can't judge the whole book by it's cover (it's read more

Bakuman is both entertaining and educational. It shows that it's not so simple to write or draw something that people will appreciate. If you want to make something truly good, you might have to revise and redo it several times as they do in this series. I like that Bakuman shows how difficult it is; it makes it more realistic. It's still entertaining at an anime level, though, since the characters passionately aim for the top.
