Drawing manga can be the death of you. Moritaka is well aware of this, having witnessed his manga artist uncle work himself to death. He is determined to avoid the path his uncle walked, despite being a gifted illustrator, and instead spends his days drifting in mediocrity.

One day, class genius and aspiring manga writer Akito asks Moritaka if he wants team up as manga artists. With no shortage of up-and-coming rivals, will they ever realise their dream?

  • Starring Takeru Sato and Ryunosuke Kamiki, this is a live-action adaptation of the highly successful manga series BAKUMAN, written by Tsugumi Oba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata.

    Jack Thompson, writing for the Anime News Network, said that the original BAKUMAN “is a love letter to the manga industry done in old-school shonen manga style.”
