Fukuda was really interesting though he's rude to Nakai.
I felt really sorry for him. He's crying over his dream which he longed for 10 years. :(
Nizuma shows some weakness which make him more interesting.
I expected something more from Takagi and Kaya this ep but I failed.

Rivals helping each other. That's just awesome. Rival and friends have always been one of my favorite topics.
I kinda feels sorry for Nakai but maybe he might also learn something working with these guys.

Ugh that was hard to watch. Niizuma is an extremely annoying character. I wish Takagi and Mashiro would just come up with another manga to draw. I don't want to watch anymore of this weird rival-friendship stuff.

I really, really liked this episode. I mean it's been awhile since I enjoyed one this much. Fukuda is everything I thought he'd be, I was waiting for him to show up! lol but I love how he, Mashiro and Eiji interacted and talked about manga. I didn't like Eiji at first but now he is one of my favorites, I mean he's so damned eccentric how can you not like? Anyway hopefully things continue being interesting and fun.

FINALLY! Awesome episode, probably one of my favourites for sure!
LOVE the new characters, they're both really cool :D Plus Eiji? Yep, no doubt about it :D
Anyways, it was cool how they helped him even though they're rivals. I dunno, this whole episode was just really interesting and zipped by! :P
Hope the next episode is as good as this one ^_^

This is definitely my favorite episode so far<3 Moritaka shines XD I knew it, he'll just be so awesome when he's with Eiji and when he's talking about Manga. He was just amazing when he was talking to Eiji and Fukuda. And he looked like he cared for Nakai (God, Moritaka I love you <3) And his conviction with Ashirogi Muto is lovely.

AND FUKUDA SHINTA I WAS WAITING FOR YOU<3 He's so awesome. He's too awesome I don't have words for it. But him being here just makes the anime all the more exciting. I'm so glad he straightened up Eiji. He should get serialized soon :3

I was so happy for Yuujirou, that poor editor. He's adorable so he should be given more slack XD At least now Eiji will be easier to handle.

I loved the scene with Eiji bowing down. His lines were perfect too. I'm glad he realized all that because of Mashiro and Fukuda!

And lastly, Nakai. Poor guy. I seriously cried when he was crying. Poor him, especially since Fukuda picks on him a lot. I want him to succeed too<3 I don't wat him to cry again :|

Oh, and Fukuda's awesome, as is Eiji.

Looks like Nizuma let it all go to his head. I love how this series goes into the business side of manga and doesn't seem like it is just thrown in there. I mean it just flows with the story.

Fukuda's voice! <3 *fangasm*

Ahem. That aside, I thought that this was a really great episode! Having not read the manga, I really like the interactions between Mashiro and Eiji and Fukuda. The whole 'helping your rival succeed' thing was...too cute for words XD

I really felt bad for Nakia, he looked so sad!
& I love how Eiji even for a great manga artist, has flaws and Mashiro pointed them out :)
I really loved the outline of making a manga and the discussions.

Nizuma is a very interesting character, a very interesting character indeed. He is actually pretty likable to be honest (I had a bad impression of him when I first saw him).

I'm not disliking Eiji anyone, but I don't like him either. He's ok after this episode.
I want the 33 year old guy (Nakai) to succeed, I feel sorry for him.
The new Albino guy is quite the punk.
I noted that this show's character designs are really realistic, all characters so far have realistic hair color and it wouldn't look (that) strange in real life.
I almost never read discussions after I made my post, if you want to reply PM me or post on my profile page.

Was not expecting that change from Nizuma at the end. Seeing him with a slightly more down to earth character was a really nice change.

The way they explained the whole process in making a good manga makes a lot of sense. I can see people trying to make something through the use of just cool characters, but unless something is added to make it more interesting, it is bound for failure.

Quite a lovely episode, enjoyed the couple new characters and well it was quite a nice experience for Mashiro as well! It also seems Akito and Miyoshi are hitting it off quite good! He didn't appeared a lot but well his development is going steady as well!

This episode was the best yet, two interesting new characters with a lot of emotion and also some development from Eiji!! He is actually so likable for a rival! I'm so excited to see what happens, I wish that all of them could get serialized. The other (older) background assistant is really bringing a lot of heartfelt emotions into this anime; I love how they showed his talents.

It was great to see that Nizuma also have his flaw as a mangaka.

This new Fukoda is also cool.

Poor Nakai, or whatever his name was, getting denigrated by much younger people xD

I was scared that by working with Nizuma, it would seclude our duo, but Mashiro still seem to believe in Takagi.

By working the three of them together, he should learn something.

The last frames of the preview were hilarious xD

The assistants are cool, love how everyone pulled together to help him out. I love when characters don't dick other people over who are trying to achieve the same dream as them, I mean the guy is really impressionable in such company and I'm happy they don't take advantage of it ^~^ Gives off a really good feel.

Amazing episode! This might be my favorite episode so far. Wow Mashiro is really helping Eiji like this?! This is awesome. I love their chemistry too (a bit better than Takagi tbh, but time will tell). Also I'm just now noticing how refreshing things are with 2 new characters. Another rival!

And I guess Nakai is an example of the failure that is possible for Mashiro. 33 years old being out done by kids half his age, crying himself to sleep wishing he could get serialized. It's a harsh reality but everybody can't be Oda.

This was nice episode. It was fun to see that even Eji isn't perfect.
The new guy, Fukuda, is also really cool (and quite funny although little mean). I like him!

I hope there is more Takagi in the next episode
