Our customer reviews

Bakuman is a fantastic story over a number of volumes. Its about two teenages who have a dream. A dream to become top Manga Artists. This is a great story and obviously, having been written by the creators of Death Note, it gives you an inside look at the industry and Shonen Jump in particular. I really enjoyed the story so far and I have read up to volume 7. I plan to read the rest as the story is still on going, i think pre-orders have just opened for volume 12!!show more

Bakuman Volume 1 Middle School Students Moritaka Mashiro and Takagi Akito have a passion for there countries Culture - Manga. When they decide to team up, through a proposal of marriage by Moritaka to Miho Azuke, the two boys immediately start on their manga. The team then discover a high school student called Eiji Nizuma who won an award in Weekly Shonen Jump for his manga. Could this be the Mangaka's future rival... Read Volume 1 of the New Manga Bakuman to find out how Moritaka and Takagi fight to survive in the gambling world of manga creating! My thoughts - Bakuman instantly got my attention. The artwork is amazing, the story great and the characters are splendid. By the same authors as the infamous Death Note, one of the most popular and greatest manga of all time. Ryan Dinsdaleshow more
