Bakuman Club

Here you can discuss the newest manga chapters of Bakuman, give your opinion anything Bakuman related, or try to predict what'll happen in future Bakuman chapters. Bakuman is the newest manga of the Death Note duo, Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, and a very good one in my opinion. The manga is about two boys in 9th grade who wish to be mangaka, or manga artists. The two main characters are artist Moritaka Mashiro and aspiring writer Akito Takagi. What the name means isn't very clear, Baku can mean a lot of things. Here are a few kanji of "Baku" and their meaning: 爆: exclamation, burst of laughter 縛: binding, bonds, fetters 獏 or 貘: tapir 瀑: raging current 爆: bomb, burst open, pop, split 縛: truss, arrest, bind, tie, restrain 漠: vague, obscure, desert, wide 寞: lonely, quiet 瀑: waterfall (Yes, these are all pronounced as "baku", and there are loads more) Wikipedia suggest "Burst of laughter man" <a href="" target="_blank"></a> But for all I care, as in the manga, it's written in kana, it can mean everything from "Burst of laughter man" to "Bomb man" "Current man" or "Waterfall man". Why Bakuman was chosen as the name isn't known yet, but it's probable that the manga the 2 are going to make themselves is going to be named Bakuman.

I am a big fan of Bakuman. I got to even meet Ayumi Fujimura the voice of Aiko Iwase, and even the english VAs for Mashiro and Miho. I even cosplayed as Moritaka...

Besides that... I hope this does NOT get the Death Note treatment. In Death Note L-A, Misa didn't have her blonde hair. I'm really hoping that they will stay true to the anime/manga as much as possible. I'd really love for them to color the guy's hair who does Takagi to a dirty blonde color, and have Kaya have her orange hair color.

Other than that, I can't wait for it to be released...but that's a whole year or two away because of DVD releases take forever after it's out in theatres...OTL
