lol based on some of the comments I'm seeing not all of you read the manga. Anyways Hiramaru's appearance was my highlight of the episode. He's hilarious and a favorite alongside Niizuma. Lol "Why do we have to work." "I just want to eat and sleep." lol one of the best characters I've seen in a while. Anyways can't wait for the next episode and I don't think 25 episodes will be enough for some reason. theres already like 150 chapters and they barely got finished with the first quarter of it or w.e.

Umm is there a problem that some of us did not reading the manga?

I heard that Hiramaru is an amazing character and i love him from what i seen in this episode. Since i only watch season 1 , Eiji is still my favourite character but i can't wait for more developments of Hiramaru.

I think what surprised me a bit was how much I laughed. It's been a while since I saw Season One. Forgot it was funny. :D

The OP and ED songs are so good! ^___^

I missed this show, and WOW, 25 Episodes have already been confirmed! Congrats! :DD
I seem to be quoting you a lot lately.
I completely agree! And oh my God, 25 episodes? *Checks* YES! I was so afraid this was going to be like Kimi ni Todoke with a 12 episode second season. I'm so ecstatic for this second season right now!

Hattori-san, WHYYYYY? He can't leave. He's one of the best characters! Okay, so all the characters are great, but Hattori was really, really awesome! Miura seems cool, so hopefully he'll be enough to keep me from wishing Hattori was there every other second... but still, Hattori is kind of irreplaceable.

Moving on, Hiramaru is an awesome character. It had to be said. "I just want to eat and sleep. Working is such a pain." Haha.

I'm way too excited and happy about this show being back. It's like I'm reliving last fall. Next week can't come fast enough.

I really missed Eiji, and lol'd at Hiramaru, he's fucking crazy. Very good first ep, the only bad thing is that first season's OP was better than this season's.

When the ED played, I thought, "Wait a minute. The voice sounds familiar." It was Tommy heavenly6. I knew it. No way though! :D

As with the first season, the OP/ED music is top notch, especially with Tommy heavenly6 ^^ Looking forward to great things.

Wow, I was sort of in the depths of despair after Tiger & Bunny ended, but now that this is back, my Saturdays are alive once again. All I had to look forward to (media wise) was GW2 and Legend of Korra which both come out in 2012.

Seeing this episode reminded me how much I love this series. I really like their new editor Miura, he seems really cool and I hope we get at least as much footage (if not more) of him as we did of Hattori.

Also, I wish the Otter11 manga was real, because I would read it in a heartbeat. Being an avid Redwall series fan anything with talking animals is on my plan to read list.

Pretty good start. New characters were interesting esp. that Hiramaru guy.

About the OP, not sure if want while the ED seems likeable.

25 eps for this season. Nice!!!

I liked the OP, when I saw glimpse of Iwase and Takagi staring at each other, it felt like NTR for a moment.

Even though I dropped Bakuman at chapter 145, I am still a avid viewer of the beginning of the series. Looking back now, Mashiro relationship with his girlfriend is ridicules as a part of the premise.

I didn't really remember where the first season ended so I was quite shocked to see Miura O.o
I son't like this part of story but somehow it look better in anime :)

Hiramaru is just amazingly pessimistic as always xD

I liked the episode, but it didn't give me that OMGHOLYCRAPWTFBBQHAXTHISISAWESOME feeling. It looks to me like they're skipping the intro and assuming everyone already knows the story from S1 and diving right into continuing the story. If so, then we'll see how it goes and I am excited for a great climax this season.

DAMN, who was that goddess-looking woman staring at Takagi in the op?
Wasn't that Iwase Aiko? The girl that liked Takagi cuz of his uber skills in school.

LOL just finished marathoning season 1 today. Perfect timing. Really great OP and ED. Didn't really like the first OP so its a great improvement. Wondering if I should go ahead and read the manga or just watch the anime. Afraid I ruin the latter if I know the whole story. ugh decision decisions.

YESSS!! when they announced the second season i was so happy.
Ever since i picked up an issue of jump with the first chapter of Bakuman, i have been an avid fan ever since. The first anime was great and i expect great things from the second season. :)

It sure is.

Really high quality episode! 5/5

It sure paid off waiting for the second season to come out. I noticed some slight changes and edits that they have done compared to the manga but it was actually an improvement.

I was only feeling a bit uneasy about Hiramaru's voice actor at first tho but got used to it during the episode and I think that it's eventually going to work out.

Absolutely amazing start to season 2.
Yes! Take the TV, Takagi! I would have done the same if i was in your place.
Wise man, wise xD.


I'm so glad Bakuman is here again ;_;

Huray for season 2. Argh already feel like it's going to suck to wait a week per episode again ><. Lol that genius writer (forgot his name), was really different than I imagined he would be. Kinda hikikomori guy xD.

Nizuma is hilarious as usual, and so is the ex-salaryman.

It might just be me but this episode felt so much faster than anything the first season did. Hopefully it stays that way.

Great as always, fantastically paced, plus Hiramaru's first appearance and a Tommy Heavenly ED. And we even got a glimpse of Aoki. Just awesome.

Solid transition from the first season to the second season. There was any unnecessarily drama (or any at all) and everything seemed to fit into place

I didn't quite like Miura's voice at first, but it grew on me by the end of the episode. A little early, but I really hope we get a 3rd season too.
