[Ended] Bakuman 3: All Good Story Has To End

Like a good meal, a good story has to end. And just like a good meal, a proper ending at a proper moment is very important. Missing either one could leave you with a bad aftertaste. Even though the proper ending of this series has more to do with the original work than the anime adaptation, it is nevertheless still a very properly good ending.

Tracing all the way back to season one, I would not have thought a story about people want to be mangaka could be interesting enough for an entire season. To my surprise, not only one long season, the entire run of all three long seasons of Bakuman were all so interesting, that I've never stopped in anticipating for the next week's new episode.

Even though the story itself is very fairy tale like, it felt real. The degree of realism is further enhanced by having the character to deal with real life problems, not just fictional problem, but real down to the earth problems that many people have.

This, no doubt is the

Long Season Drama of the Season for Fall 2012 Season

Final Scoreboard:

Drama: 94 (Exciting)
Comedy: 91 (Brilliant!)
Action: N/A
Art/Animation: 89 (Slightly strange, but I'm used to it by now)
Sound/Music: 93 (Great theme songs)
Character: 90 (Unique individuals)

Plot: 97 (A fairy tale of mangakas)
Ending: 100 (Just great)

Re-watch value: 80 - I would still watch it again

Overall: 96 - Great Story with Perfect Ending

Recommendation: This is simply one of the best stories of this type. If you've seen the first two season, I don't need to urge you to watch this one. But if you haven't started Bakuman, you should.
