Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Another excellent volume of "Bakuman" has been released. I highly recommend this series if you love slice of life stories. It is also good for readers who like humor with a dash of romance. And, of course, if you're an aspiring manga-ka, graphic novelist, artist or author, you need to read this series. As an aspiring writer, I am inspired by this manga even if I'm not drawing manga. I must say that though this series is written and drawn by the creators of "Death Note", the story is nothing like "Death Note". "Death Note" was dark and "Bakuman" is light. (No, pun intended.) Enjoy!
