So I guess I was the only one who wanted to see them not get serialized. I knew they would but just wanted to see them with the shocked look on their face and possibly have a little hint or thinking about giving up. Oh well. But overall it was an alright ending. I did like that part with them play cards and the Jacks.

Series overall, 7/10. Agree with about the pacing but it was more than that. The nomance with Mashiro & Miho annoyed the hell out of me. Could have cared less about it. The supporting characters (like Fuduka and Nizuma, of course, and the editors) seemed to have more personality than Mashiro and Takagi. But I did like its focus on what it takes to become a manga author and the process to achieve it. The times it focused more on this than the nomance is when it shined, I think.

I'll be waiting to see what happens in season 2. Sounds like it will be exciting so I'm looking forward to it. Plus I want to see what happens with Hattori (though I may read ahead in the manga and find out).

One last thing, it did not feel like 2 years pasted. I know throughout they got older, graduated, seasons changed....basically time was moving. But when they mentioned it was 2 years, it didn't seem like it. To me its like time went, but it didn't at the same time. If that makes any sense. ┐(-_-)┌

7/10 for this series.

Slow and boring with some interesting parts. That's it.

omg!! I read a spoiler on Miura's character description.. stupid me.. =(.. don't read it if you don't want spoilers

anyway good anime, I love it even if it is slow paced.. 8/10 for me..The manga writing story was actually a 9.5 for me but I need to deduct points about the romance.. I am not the fan of their romance, it was a little annoying (but sometimes its not) so 8 is reasonable for me

7/10 for this series, it would be probably better for me if I hadn't read the story in the manga long before it aired.
I had the same reaction as Miyoshi at Takagi and Mashiro's bromance. Now I can't wait for Hiramaru. And...

I thoroughly enjoyed this series. My heart tells me to rate it 10, but I've given it a 9 instead. I don't think I've ever felt so many emotions during one episode of something before! I was staring at the screen wide-eyed at the meeting, and the jumping in joy when they heard they were getting serialized, and had tears in my eyes in the scene with Mashiro and Miho. I'm certainly looking forward to the next season.

As a lot of people have said before, Miho and Mashiro's "romance" was more or less non-existent, and both the pacing and character development left a lot to be desired, but I enjoyed this series a lot nevertheless, which is my reasoning for my rating.

I was entertained well enough for the majority of it (and thus didn't find it that boring like some do), but it didn't really make a great impression either - "good" is the word. 7/10

I think no similar genes anime to Bakuman get such a high score on my list. The pacing might be slow but the story plot is so irrigating and motivational. The mood most of the time happen in the right setting.

Season 2 definitely sounds much more exciting from all the earlier comment in the forum. I can't wait!

First of all Congratulation! :D I'm so happy. Very nice ending it made me smiling all the time when I'm watching this anime. And Azuki talked to Mashiro that part I was happy too. After watching anime I felt like I want to give my best to fulfill my dreams too.
Man... can't wait for the 2nd season.

Great anime!

8/10 That was a very nervous episode. It's great that they got serialized and that Moritaka and Azuki finally talked again. I'm definitely coming back for season 2.

Very pleased with how this anime turned out. Only reason its getting an 8 in my book is cause the opening episodes were such a WTF moment but it turned out to be a good move. Guess I'll refresh myself what on happened (dunno how close we are to chapter 90 in the anime) during the break and also get the new volumes that have been released in the states

They sure chose a perfect moment in the manga to end the first season! Would have been better if they didn't show the part with Miura though..

Woot, serialization! Didn't leave me pumping my fists in joy like Kimi ni Todoke Second Season's ending, but it still made me happy to see these guys make it. Looking forward to seeing where the show goes from here this fall.

This happened so long ago, that i totally forgot what happened. It feels nice to be watching the anime with a fresh perspective.

The tension built up perfectly, and i liked how they went into so much detail about the selection process and the criticisms of each. Another genius? i suppose you could call him that... kinda forgot how he was introduced haha.

This series got off to a rocky start, but near the end picked up the pacing and executed a series of flawless episodes.
10/10!

Well, at least Ashirogi's reactions to first Mashiro's hand when playing cards, and then when Miyoshi called were pretty good.
And Fukuda's call to Ashirogi after the result. Was also lulzy.
Not to mention Niizuma's "Conglaturations."
And suddenly, new editor. Way to end a season.
Protip: I don't really check the forums anymore, so if you want something, take it on my profile.
Is it time for my long-awaited return to the forums? щ(゚Д゚щ) Nope™, probably not.

Great end to season 1! There's one scene that really stood out to me:



Miyoshi getting a bit excited there....

Takagi: "Ehhh, Saikou?" :-o
Mashiro: "...can't stop grinning..." :-D
Miyoshi: :-3

Nice final episode!!! and SaikoxMiho final scene is so cute!!!!
Only detective trap will be serialized, I'm sorry for fukuda, he is awesome chara...
And in theme of favorite character, best chara is Fukuda, imho in second position there is Niizuma and Takagi at same level, however all three are very good!!!
That Hiramaru, new editor and pro life will be plots for next season, that I surely will watch.....
I give it 8+, it isn't escellent anime, but altough very good series...
last minute is horrible cliffhanger......

next to Second season, in autumn........

I have hunches:



This may sound dumb to people who have already read the manga, if ever my theories were wrong. But this is posible, right?

Eitherway, I loved the last episode. I really though they'd meet each other in the last part of the episode but there's still season 2 coming up for more romance between the two.

mashiro dad isnt a mangaka though =O! We never see what mashiro dad looks like in the manga and the chracter you're talking about is not mashiro dad.


In a different matter, this anime is going to have a lot of episodes! (YAY!) I mean i think episode 25 finished on chapter 30-40 in the manga! Adding to the fact that the manga gets another half a year to progress as well.

I found it boring and cringeworthy. This series is just full of overexaggeration which really depicts how boring it is to follow a series about manga publishing. With that said, I think it was OK at best.

5/10

This was a nice show. I was so focused on them wanting to serialize it that I completely forgot about that they originally meant to get an anime before he could be together with Azuki. Stupid me.
I was surprised that another editor came in, I'm curious to know the reason behind it. I'm glad I watched it now; in one and a half months the second season starts, so I'm awaiting it. An 8 out of 10.

On to season two. I'm glad I caught up over the last few days. Excellent series and the long distance love affair (if we can call it that) brings back memories of trying to keep similar relationships going when I was in my last year of high school and second year of university.... Let's just say that it is a very difficult thing to do, so those memories are bittersweet....
Please don't feed the trolls!
