20-year-old Aihara Minoru has come to Tokyo to make his dreams of becoming an action manga artist come true. To his amazement, he lands a job as a live-in assistant of his favorite mangaka, Takakura Kenji, who writes a popular fighting manga called "Ultimate Banchou."

Upon arriving at his new workplace, however, he discovers that his idol is not the tough guy he'd always imagined. The truth is, Takakura Kenji is the pen name of Sekai Ichiko, a girl his age who is basically a moe character (she looks and acts like a little kid). After Aihara's obvious disappointment starts them off on the wrong foot, it's going to be tough for him to prove to her that he has what it takes to be a manga artist!

Moecchi with progression.
That would be the quickest way to summarize the little gem of Comic☆Studio that I happened to stumble upon a few days ago.

What we have here is a story about a 20-year old man named Aihara Minoru who dreams about becoming an action mangaka. By a stroke of fortune he manages to land a job as an assistant to the author of his favorite manga series, Takakura Kenji. Unlike the muscular guy he was expecting however, he finds out that it is merely a pen name for the true mangaka, Sekai Ichiko, who cannot be explained as anything other than a moe legal read more

The basic plot is fairly familiar: young man wants to become a mangaka, takes a job working for his favorite artist who turns out to be a young woman, they fall in love. And along the way, there are a number of jokes about breast size, there are beach and onsen episodes, there are jokes about moe culture... basically all the things that you would expect from a shounen or seinen romantic comedy. And Comic Studio does all of those things about as well as the next seinen rom-com.

All that being said, there are three things that distinguish Comic Studio from the rest read more

There are a lot of manga out there with crazy stories, moe characters, and sometimes even giving us some rather sexual romances but this one is a little odd. To think they would actually take a moe character and make it the Mangaka of a manga all about fighting and battles is pretty interesting. Not to mention the age of the character or at least how old she looks like and acts. I almost feel sorry for both of the characters, Aihara for finding out exactly who wrote his stuff and Kenji to be judged by how she looks. I can’t blame Aihara for it read more

A sweet romantic story about a mangaka-wannabe and his job at a small studio.


- It's a light-hearted funny and romantic type of manga
- Relationship starts early in the manga and ACTUALLY PROGRESSES
- Main heroine is 20 years old but looks and sometimes acts like a child
- Main male character is actually useful, sometimes bold and likeable
- Interesting side characters
- Kind of rushed ending but still very satisfying
- Art is quite Moe


- Only 24 Chapters
- Since it's so short the story sometimes feels rushed
- Main heroine is 20 years old but looks and sometimes acts like a child. (This is really just your preference)
- Side read more
