Synopsis

Yasaka Hachiki isn't a genius, and he's painfully aware of it. Yet, fresh out of high school, he decided to enter a special school for aspiring mangaka: Onigahama, also known as "The Tower of Ogres," along with his buddy Saru. Even at the end of the school's two-year course, it is said that only one or two students actually become pros.

One serious contender is Mikeya "Mike" Touma, a pretty boy with an obvious talent for manga but who has so far failed to impress his friend, a strange girl he calls Myaako. To his shock, though, Myaako actually gives praise to a seemingly mediocre storyboard drawn by Hachi on a notebook. This ticks him off and sparks a rivalry between the two.

Thus begins the tale of Onigahama's students and their merciless struggle to achieve their common dream.

This series really showed what Masuda-sensei could do... and what he couldn't do. The endearing characters of Jitsu wa just didn't show up here, and what we got was an average sports series that got axed.

----- Long -----
I'm not giving this series a 6 because it was cancelled (Masuda-sensei wrapped up SO WELL on such short notice). I'm giving it a 6 because it was going downhill and becoming a boring slog... which is probably why it got axed.

Compared to his previous work Jitsu wa Watashi wa (one of my favorite seres), Masuda-sensei really tried something different with Shuukan Shounen Hachi, switching from read more

I have a strange feeling when reading action shounen manga. On one hand, I sometimes find those boring if they utilize common tropes that are found in nearly any shounen manga I read. On the other hand, I love the utilization of these tropes, as they bring forth the essence of what a shounen manga truly is. To make short, the use of these shounen tropes must be used well in order for the manga to be enjoyable. As to where I am going with this, it is simply to tell you that Shuukan Shounen Hachi utilizes these tropes really well.

Personally, the story of Shuukan read more

This is my first review ever, so I'm sorry if I'm not too concise.
I'll try to keep it short.

I liked this manga a lot and the fact that it got axed so soon got me off guard, so let me get to it.

Story:8
The story has the usual shounen tropes(pretty much the reason why i was skeptical to start reading this manga), but I'm not calling it bad because of that.

Preliminary
The cliche, this is my first review ever. I may have some bias in me but so does most reviews. On to the review of Shuukan Shounen Hachi.

At first I hesitated to read this manga because it was about people writing manga. I tend to stay clear of series like this (like I have not read Bakuman). After reading this series, my entire perception of these types of manga has changed in a positive light.

The story starts with Yasaka Hachiki. He is ordinary and has no formal training in drawing manga.
Then there is Mikeya "Mike" Touma, a classmate completely opposite from each other. read more
