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.

I'm kind of surprised that there is no review for this manga yet. So, in order to fix that, I'm going to write it one.

Mangaka-san is a humorous take on a proud-panties-loving mangaka's interactions with his assistants/editors/co-mangakas.

Being episodic in nature, usually composed of short chapters of 8 pages, it doesn't have story arcs. But, what it lacks on plot, it makes up with situations that give the reader a glimpse on what a mangaka's life is about. Piecing these different situations together and we get a clearer picture of what this manga is all about.

The illustrations might look simple but it is clean. It read more

If you want some good laugh, or need some entertaiment, you should try Mangaka-san to Assistant-san. This series actually very simple one, it's only had 7-9 pages per chapter, with no actual plot, no drama, tear-jerking and such. Mangaka-san to Assistant-san focused on comedy and daily life of panty-lovers mangaka with his assistant, editor, and other that are related (such as chief editor, rival).

The story mainly focus around panty-mangaka named Aito Yuuki and his assistant, Ashisu Sahoto. Aito really loves drawing panties. He even collected various kind of panties. "Panties are all men dreams." that's what he said. This series labeled as ecchi, but I read more

tl;dr: A manga with little plot but good paced hilarious antics with a likable cast.

This manga is a simple gag manga that isn't a straight 4-koma, though it does have some of those, but feels pretty similar in that it has incredibly short chapters, around 10 pages, that each tell a small story that's centered around a few comedic events. This comedy does get somewhat repetitive, but because the pace of the manga is so fast it never really feels all that stale and constantly hilarious, so overall it is quite solid and enough to hold up the manga on its own.

Very simple art featuring a very perverted main character and his "harem".

The art may be simple but it's perfect for what the story is. It never goes too complex or too clean, it's a perfect mix.

The main character can be annoying as he is towards all of the girls present in the manga. However, he is balanced out thanks to the other characters that deal with him. His main assistant is the straight man, which ends up with her developing a "sadist" reputation within the manga world. There is a girl that fulfills every manga stereotypes but they all work in this crazed read more
