THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
The old editor got some idea that the pair can win. KTM's setting was too much and too serious? Simple + serious comedy was his idea (like the work done by salaryman mangaka). Serious illustration + Serious comedy in idea. He emphasized that there's no wasting time for previous work, just experience.
School festival, but they need to think about the setting for new one.
"Dokkiri"-ness, full of surprise...
Oh, no. Miyoshi heard about the outcome if no new work created from the female mangaka.
Shuujin got letter, then the pair going to go after the old editor. And seeing people going in and out of the office. lol @ him reading the love book at the bookstore, and realizing who he's seeing. The editors care about the pair, and the pair heard it. Shuujin got serious comedy? "Crime" manga?? Kanzen Hanzai Club (Completely Crime Club).
Miyoshi going to the trip for Miho's b-day. And got switched... to Miho's illustration (surprise). Shuujin is having fun about the idea, and Saikou thinks it's fun, too. The current editor is shocked.
Hattori used the correct words to describe the goddess.
She truly was dazzling, radiating her eternal youth.
Her straight face know no fears.
Her sharp words eclipse all thoughts as they strike your heart.
I really wanted to see the scene in the anime where Takagi said "Follow that taxi!". Wish they had followed the manga word by word. I was looking forward to watching this episode since this chapter in the manga is my favourite. But this episode didn't cover everything. Still, it was a good one :)
Hmmmmm dunno yet how I think about perfect crime club idea... doesn't grab me as much as Trap's or KTM's ideas at first. Can't wait till next episode though because Bakuman itself is ever suspensefull :)
Awesome episode; yet another manga i wouldn't mind reading XD, it seems like from the preview the editors are shocked at the storyboard; since its fairly obvious they will get serialized; i wonder if they will get 1st place or something with their new manga before the season ends; since with Trap i don't think not even with the 1st chapter they ever got 1st place.
anime is great still manga is better meaby it's because I know the story but i readed Bakuman few times and even then it's was better. Especially this episode (chapter) i was laughthing much more when reading what now, and there is no taxi scene :(.
Anyway the next manga they are doing, for me it's the most interesting one that came up in bakuman... including all authors, and including the ones that already exist and the ones that are in manga already
TRAP has been published for more than one year? They've done more TRAP than Tanto? I'm a little lost with the time line
You remember how Mashiro did all those chapters in the hospital that didn't get published because TRAP got cancelled? They made a fifth volume with those chapters in them because it would be a waste not to do so. I'm not sure if this was mentioned in the anime, but it was in the manga.
Also you shouldn't forget that the tankobon are released way later than the actual manga. Usually the book releases are like 20 chapters (=3/4 months) or so behind. This is also true for manga that are cancelled or have ended. I don't think it fits in the time gap, but it could be that the final volume of Tanto wasn't released yet.
Well this was one of the funniest Bakuman eps, which was a nice change of pace. From what I recall it would seem that they did an pretty good job covering these parts from the manga. But having that said, my memory might be betraying me here though, heh.
I like the concept for the new manga, methodical theft, making sure that nobody notices the difference, the thought of benig found out, EXCTING. The closest thing would be death note or the first part of Onani Master Kurosawa
