HASH(0x9fa53024) out of 5 stars Suspensful Comedy at its finest Nov. 23 2010
By Tristan A. Hayes - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Bakuman vol 2, continues the story of Moritaka Mashiro (Saiko) and Akito Takagi (Shujin) as they are on their journey to create a number one manga. The volume introduces a sort of rival, Eiji, who is also their same age and is already on his way to getting a serialized manga. This is one great ride filled with comedy, suspense, and massive page turning action that should not be missed.

I found that the characters' facial expressions were great for the main characters and their respective "girlfriends." The writing also does an excellent job at explaining concepts. Particularly, one of the most noticeable things is that of the Shonen Jump imprinted manga, this seems to be the one with the most writing (probably because of the lack of high action fighting that is seen in the other major Shonen Jump manga series here). The writing is great though and the characters develop well enough. The art is great and in scenes with actual Shonen Jump manga, it is great to see references to other series (for example in the Shonen Jump office, Naruto poster, One Piece wanted posters, etc, litter the place).

All in all this is a great series to continue to read and Volume 3 can not come fast enough.

Note: The bonus included are sketches on each of the pages adjacent to a chapter title page.

HASH(0xa011b6a8) out of 5 stars Story just gets better! Nov. 26 2010

The second volume continues right where the first one ended, as the main characters start off their journey into the manga world. The story becomes more involved and detailed, and if you liked the first volume then this one is a must. They story is great and the art is beautiful, one of my favorite series, really top notch.

HASH(0x9fbfa3b4) out of 5 stars Really picks up steam, good series, good 2nd volume ~ Oct. 20 2012
By Christopher Barrett - Published on
Format: Paperback
I'm just posting another positive comment. If you weren't already hooked in volume one, then by the end of this volume you should be. The story really picks up and focuses more on the characters' interactions with the Shonen Jump editors. We see the characters deciding their futures as they test for entry into high school.

The romance angle gets a little less sappy and a tad more realistic. We also focus less on the back story of Saiko's uncle and we focus more on the present. There are a few new characters, and we see a bit more of the new rival.

Solidly built story on an interesting premise. Other manga authors have shown the struggling life of a manga creator, but in a different way. Before I had always read those manga showing the creators working as assistants while struggling to find time to pen their own series and get published. This is a new an interesting spin, showing the two high school age phenoms trying to make it big before they graduate.

The artist and elusive writer behind Death Note are responsible for this series. (Seriously, nobody really knows who the author of these series really is.) The combo packs a pretty hefty one-two punch of brilliantly laid out story lines and amazing artwork. It appeals to the high school age crowd, but even an older Otaku such as myself enjoyed this series immensely. Highly recommended for manga fans.

I first read Bakuman because of leisure. I consider myself a hardcore fan of Naruto (by Masashi Kishimoto Sensei), but the authors of DN did an amazing job with this manga series. I hope they can be serialized by many years! I think every fan of Shonen Jump's Manga should read this!

HASH(0xa08799a8) out of 5 stars volume 2 - Yay! Aug. 26 2013
By Kathryn E. Fox - Published on
Format: Paperback
The story keeps going at a good pace. It starts with a bit of backstory on Takagi and then launches into their first meeting with an editor. It continues through the process until their first piece is published and they get their reader survey results.On to volume 2 :-)
