Good Enough
6 October 2018 | by pennyelenabooksSee all my reviews

Bakuman is interesting from the perspective that we get to see how mangaka work. It's amazing how they manage to actually hand draw all these pages!! The story showcases the struggles of mangaka to finish their work, to get noticed and to get read. The other part of the story, however, was kind of weak. The love story can't even called a love story, the hero's past about his uncle was properly shown and his condition was roughly managed. Therefore, the story was a bit boring at times. Other than that, the performances were really good and the presentation of the manga well executed.
