Bakuman

When I heard that the guys who worked on Death Note were creating another manga together I was super pumped for it! I went out and immediately started reading the series, one volume after another and I was not disappointed at all. The plot behind the series is two guys who love manga and unexpectedly become friends and use their talents together to become mangakas themselves. They work hard together and stay determined to reach their goals even in their toughest times. The manga is filled with comedy and inspirational content all throughout its pages. What's special is that it goes behind the whole process of creating and writing your own manga giving fans an insight on possibly how their own favorite manga could have been created. You could, in a sense, see the creators themselves being the main characters since the two are great friends who work together with writing and drawing manga. Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata have done it again with their work on Bakuman; another must read manga series!
