[Ended] Bakuman: Amazing

Before I watched Bakuman, I would never have thought that an anime about people trying to become manga authors would be an interesting or exciting topic. But Bakuman had shown me otherwise because this is one of the most exciting anime I've seen lately.

The core of this anime is driven by the dream of two people who wants to become manga authors. With such a simple idea, the story then explores the inner structure of a manga publishing company, which gives an in-depth look of what it takes to become a manga author. Although I have no idea how much of the supposed "process" is fact and how much of them is fiction, they sure all felt very real. Along with some great character development and many very unique and interesting personality clashes, I would award it

Best Long Season Drama for October 2010 Season

Final Scoreboard:

Drama: 97 (Intense)
Comedy: N/A
Action: N/A
Art/Animation: 91 (Well made)
Sound/Music: 89 (Like the theme song)
Character: 94 (Very well developed)
Plot: 92 (Insightful)
Ending: 90 (Terminated on a good note)

Re-watch value: 70 -Loses the intensity, but still interesting

Overall: 93 - The Best of the Season

Recommendation: Bakuman is an excellent anime that is difficult to describe using words. You really have to just watch it to understand why it is such a great anime.
