A life description about the mangaka Aito Yuuki and his assistant Ashisu Sahoto. Aito doesn't understand the feelings of the characters in his stories so he asks Ashisu to help him. Ashisu would do anything for the work—she will even let him touch her breast so he will know how it feels like?! The Habit?! The Pervert?! Can we understand them? That's the comedy of a mangaka life.

There is a girl that fulfills every manga stereotypes but they all work in this crazed ...

Preliminary (12/160 eps)
Just the same old trash.

Over the course of the 10 years I've taken Anime and Manga seriously, I've found very few series that I don't enjoy to some degree. But during the last few years, I've discovered a few that just don't sit well with me, as well as a few tropes.

"Mangaka-san to Assistant-san to" is yet another empty ecchi series that comes across as tasteless and creepy. The main character (Yuuki Aito) is just a sad pathetic pervert that you can't root for. All he does is bitch that he can't touch women and all that's on his mind is panties. 90% of ...
