Yuuki Aito is a perverted manga artist who appreciates panties, wishing to draw as many as he can. Being surrounded by numerous female assistants, he is constantly asking to use them as references for the manga he draws.

Although Aito has an extremely degenerate mind, he can also be a very kind, generous, and helpful person. The duality of his behavior confuses his assistants—do they love the considerate side of him that he rarely displays, or do they hate him for the perverted thoughts he has most of the time?

Mangaka san to Assistant san is a slice of life harem comedy depicting the life of a perverted mangaka who makes the monthly manga "HajiCafe" with his assistants. It's a nice comedy. The animation and art is pretty good and the characters are all likeable.

Story 7/10:
Not much of a story. The 12 episodes pass by showing different situations of the team. Just like in Lucky Star, Danshi Koukousei and Nichijou, this anime also shows different skits. Almost every skit is funny and nice to watch.

Art 9/10:
I really enjoyed the animation and artwork of this anime. The character designs were really amazing. It looked kinda like read more

This is an anime about a man and his dream. His dream of panties. Seeing panties, smelling panties, touching panties.... Yeah that's honestly most of what this show is about. Oh, and a there's also little stuff about making manga. But it's ecchi manga about panties anyway. Each episode is divided into three or four different scenes, and almost all of them deal with panties and Aito's love for them in one way or another.

This is a harem anime about a mangaka of an ecchi manga and the girls around him. His three assistants (though two are hardly ever seen actually helping his manga at read more

Mangaka-san to Assistant-san to The Animation, is simply an anime about a guy named Aito who is a manga artist, and works closely with various people, such as Ashisu. The show has a harem-like feel since it is a 'one guy, lots of girls', but no matter how perverted Aito is, he does not have any intention to do any of the girls wrong, even if what he says and does, comes off the wrong way.

Story: To be blunt, there is very little story to the show, aside from Aito being a perverted manga artist, and Ashisu wanting to be a read more

Welcome to the 13 minute classic - Mangaka-san to Assist-san to The Animation.

Story: 7/10
The story in itself isn't anything special, of course. It follows the perverted, young mangaka Aito Yuuki, which, because of his lack of zeal, is about to miss the deadline once again.
The story is pure comedy, so I don't really mind if its not worked out perfectly.

Art: 7/10
Cute character designs, as well as good backgrounds and just as good animations definitely help making a good anime. Just like in this case. The colors are lively, the qualitiy is consistent, nothing to rant about.

Sound: 8/10
