As Spring Season for 2014 comes to a close and I start to reflect back at the series I followed, there will be a handful of series that will be memorable. Such a series as Mangaka-san to Assistant-san to The Animation that will be a part of the few series I will most definitely remember. It has been a long time where I have came across an anime that is extremely hilarious and to have me in hysterics multiple times in one sitting, and all it takes you might ask? All it takes is 13 minutes. This is hands down the best comedy series of read more

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

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

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
