Bakuman Volume 05

Bakuman Volume 05 - Tsugumi Ohba 4 stars

Oh noes! If they weren't under enough pressure, now the guys have to deal with a new editor on the eve of the debut of their new Jump series. Ugh! This guy seems a little flaky, and not as knowledgeable as Hattori (who I really, really liked!).

This was a solid entry into the series. Moritaka and Akito are learning that getting their own weekly series isn't a piece of cake. There is the pressure of deadlines, editor meetings, finding assistants, and staying in the top of the rankings, all while trying to attend high school! I was not committed to Bakuman at first, but I like it now.
