Bakuman – 08

Don’t diss on the art, and Dr.Fluffyevilpants makes his reappearance~.

~Now this week’s Bakuman seemed to take really long to come out despite what I said last week! I think I’m starting to go crazy with stress…Thank goodness for American holidays to get me out of school for two days x’D Anyways, YAY BAKUMAN TIME! *insert Bakuman enthusiasm now*

Our manga boys are hard at work trying to create a manga for the Tezuka award, the award they boldly told Mr. Hattori they’d try to win. Yet every story idea Takagi brings out isn’t good enough…

Saikou is too picky probably…(I’m Shuujin biased, sorry x’D)

One night of writing however and the next day Saikou finds the perfect storyline, called “One in a Hundred Million”. They quickly discuss and decide on using that story.

YEAHHHH THAT’S MY MAN! Kicking your awful stories to the curb since 2008.

Now since I’m a lazy ass I won’t be explaining this story either, so here are some pretty screencaps of One in a Hundred brought to you by Saikou~. Personally, I think this story was waaayy more interesting than the first, and it has cooler art, heh.

The boys go straight to work, leading us in a musical montage of their working time between school and the apartment, finishing just in time for the Tezuka award deadline.

The next day they give it to Mr. Hattori, who is impressed with how much better they’ve done on this new manga of theirs. Since results for the award won’t be out to November, Hattori suggests that they work to get into Shonen Jack NEXT edition, which is a gateway for pros. Shuujin starts to work on more story lines, but again, none are as good as their past one.

Life got you down? Take Bakuman Enthusiasm Injections! Guaranteed to make you, and your life, seem more enjoyable~

Another day of school, and the boys are discussing ideas back at the apartment when they get a phone call for Mr. Hattori. He tells them that their manga has made it into the Top 8! (And with that excitement, it’s no surprise the boys get a little too cocky (and too imaginative) and decide to take a break until the final judgment is made.

Told you Bakuman Injections work…

After another music montage (because apparently life goes faster with music), the day Mr. Hattori is supposed to call about the results arrives and the boys are so nervous they can’t even sit still and read manga!

The call finally arrives, but unfortunately…our boys were cut from the final positions, only getting their names listed when the announcement is made. The two are pretty disheartened, especially Saikou, but continue to keep trying and at least make into NEXT. One day school however, Saikou is confronted by Ishizawa (a.k.a Ugly Douche face; excuse my language), the wannabe manga artist. He points out Saikou’s art from their listing in the award announcement and starts criticizing it, saying it doesn’t look like manga and that he’s holding Shuujin back.

Shuujin starts getting mad and suddenly…

…punches Ugly–opps, Ishizawa RIGHT IN THE FACE!


As the episode closes, Shuujin keeps beating on Ishizawa, telling him to apologize as Kaya and Saikou try to hold him.

By the way, this is Dr.Fluffyevil pants, as named by Dan-Go xD

End thoughts: I’m not even kidding; I waited one week and this whole episode just to see Shuujin punch that sucka’ in the FREAKIN FACE! I hate that guy! Gosh, he looks ugly…and he sucks at drawing! I have lingering hate for people like that since I’ve had people like him tell me things about my art style once |’D (Hoshi was not pleased; I just doodle folks!). Anyways, this was a very music-montage filled episode; I guess to waste time again? Lately Bakuman has been doing this a lot, always making me wait for the good stuff until the end…Now because of this, I’m fairly pleased with this episode; no extreme rants from me.

I was re-reading the second volume of the Bakuman manga that I bought, and I’m loving how the anime puts some of their exact positions from the manga into some of the episodes. It cracks me up all the time x’D I’ve also noticed that the anime shows Azuki a lot more than the manga does. In the anime, you see her tiny moments when she’s  talking to Kaya alone and such, but the manga (at least from this second volume I’ve read) hardly recognizes her at all; only when it comes to important conversations and moments between her and Saikou do you really see her. It’s not like I am complaining though, heh.

I’d like to know, is it too late for me to be complaining about the opening song to Bakuman? I know I did on the first post, but I’m really, sincerely irritated with it now |’D SOMEONE CHANGE IT PLEASE OR I WILL MAKE MY OWN OPENING; I’m serious. Anyways, sorry for my complaining! Next week’s episode is going to be GOOD; reading the manga totally kicks ass sometimes, hahaha~.


Saikou makes a trip to Shuujin’s apartment, and what’s this? Kaya and Iwase are there?! Has our Shuujin become popular from hitting Ishizawa in the face? (Manga reference) Until next week then~!!

    One in a Hundred is super cool *o* I sort of wish that it was a real series.

    Bleach on the Shonen Jack NEXT edition(:

    Ishizawa is such an asshole -n- The only thing he can draw is probably MOE MOE girl head shots. Way to go Shuujin for punching him in the face! >u>

  2. Overcooled says:

    The Bakuman injection screencap looks like Saiko is groping someone’s boobs. JUST SAYING.

  3. Junko says:

    I’m a bad person.

    I loved this episode so much (this and all the other eps I guess) that the second I saw the second volume of the manga, I bought it.

    And now I’ve gone and spoiled myself.

          • Dan-go says:

            And hoshi,your grace , it would indeed behoove oneself to lend your pure and heartfelt support to one as undeserving as I, for i shall be your loyal vassal, bound by both ties of duty and love for the highness of manga, ready to surmount whatever obstacles that may lie between me and this possibly unrequited love, for indeed, love itself has no boundaries, as i, myself, intend to prove to you.

          • Hoshi says:

            Uwah~ you guys…|’D
            SOMEONE WIN ALREADY SO ALL THIS SUCKING UP CAN END lol!! (Though I don’t mind, heehee. I’m loving this royalty talk X’D)

        • Dan-go says:

          Despicable, tofu, Hoshi is the true queen of manga wherever she may go, her word is rule,state and law, her authority transcends any web based boundaries

          • Hoshi says:

            ….why do I suddenly agree with this? x’D

            Anyways, I, the manga queen, wish you both a good and FAIR race to the top spot. I shall grant thee a reward to however is first~

          • Dan-go says:

            lol hope kyokai doesn’t notice you encouraging us your highness 😉

    • Tofu says:

      • Captain says:

        But yes. Let’s see..Hoshi post more artwork.

        P.S. Hoshi’s actually female. :>

        • Tofu says:

          LOLS well it does say Self-proclaimed manga QUEEN on Hoshi’s rank name xD so I guess it’s pretty obvious

          I’d like to see Hoshi post her artwork too, and also more manga posts xD

          • Dan-go says:

            manga drag queen? but yeah arakawa is probably why i envisioned a guy

    • Namika says:

      Count me in!!! ^_____^
      O’tanoshimi da neee~ :3

    • Overcooled says:

      Dan-go, how DARE you mistake my cute Hoshi-chan for a guy!!!
      Also, why don’t you just stalk her dA if you wanna see her artwork? <_<

      • Hoshi says:

        ~Okay, okay, okay…FIRST OFF I’M A CHICK, NOT NO TRAP |’D

        Second, it says in my bio there is no relation between me and Hoshi from Arakawa X’D

        Third you guys really want to see my artwork??? |’D (I’m touched, really) Maybe I’ll post this sketch I drew of Shuujin then in my next post…

        • Tofu says:

          ROFL yes we do Hoshi!!! ^^

          • Hoshi says:

            Uwaaahhh~ I feel honored..or something like that x’D
            I should surprise you guys one day then ;D

          • Dan-go says:

            <3 Hoshi, Gomenasai *bows down head in total respect and regeret* AND YES WE DO WANNA WANNA WANNA!!!!, and it's cool, tofu is metanorn's trap

          • Tofu says:

            ahahaha thanks Dan 😛 and yes plz Hoshi, it would be an honor to receive the find ark works from your highness~

          • Hoshi says:

            It’s all right Dan-go!
            And okay I might put up something next post then ;D
            …Tofu is Metanorn’s trap (I’M SORRY!) I thought he was a girl at first |’D (I’M SORRY AGAIN ;3;)

          • Tofu says:

            Nah it’s alright, even the DDD hosts call me a trap, I’m use to it ^^ anyways your higness, I have resigned for the good of the people and allowed Dan to be victorious in this long battle ^^ I believe it was fun at first but now it was more of a bother to Metanorn’s writers and lurkers/commenters. I have realized that the win for glory or a spot is not as important as the win of obtaining back your pride and image amongst fellow men and women xD Thank youf or your support but as of now, I throw away the title POWUH hound and resort back to my own title, TOFU the Yoko fanboy who is a TRAP in everyones eyes xD

          • Hoshi says:

            Ahhhh I see. ^^ That is very noble of you Tofu-san~ I shall grant you a reward as well then ;D

          • Dan-go says:


  7. Namika says:

    I noticed how Bakuman never fails to crack me up and make my heart beat faster XD This show is turning out such a kick-ass! ^_____^
    No wonder, they didn’t make it even the second time. If they would, it would be quite boring XD In truth, I found Moritaka’s art a bit heavy. But I’ll leave that, manga isn’t the issue here))) Oh, I just LOVED seeing Akito so wild!!! And that kick was GREAT! GO AKITO! I love him even more now))) And I wonder, what role will that Iwase girl play???…… :3 can’t wait ’till next week!!! ><"

    • Hoshi says:

      ~Oh yes it’s definitely turning out super kick-ass each episode! 8’D

      If they actually one, of course it would be boring. We need some conflicts to keep this series going lol! I actually liked Moritaka’s art this second time…it was more colorful with more interesting characters. And OMG YES I LOVE AKITO EVEN MORE NOW TOO XD

      • Namika says:

        I hope we’ll see him so mad one more time! ^_______^

  8. Nadia says:

    God, I was SO happy when Shuujin punched Ishizawa in the face! ^O^ I was waiting for it!

    Ugh… Don’t even get me started on the opening… It always kills the mood of whatever’s before it. >__<

    • Dan-go says:

      predictions for next episode? intervention about Shuujin’s habit?

      • Dan-go says:

        and BRUE BIRDS

        • Tofu says:

          I will officially declare that I am the only one who actually likes the OP song for Bakuman

          • Dan-go says:

            Lies, i like it, it’s oldschool, makes me feel like i’m watching candy candy again, just a tad annoying in that AWWW CHEESY kinda way

          • Tofu says:

            the song is good in everyway ^^ probs I’m saying that because I kidna like the whole cheesy thing (I say a lot of cheesy stuff once in a while)

            overall for me it’s a good OP

          • Dan-go says:

            Somewhat nostalgic isn’t it?

          • Hoshi says:

            It’s so boring!! I think it’s because I’m a rocker and I like fast-paced songs >.>
            But it’s all right; you may like whatever you want Tofu-san, I mean, like at Overcooled! She doesn’t like a lot of shows that a lot of people love XD

          • Tofu says:

            I think I’m with OC with a lot of stuff xD Probs because I haven’t checked them out yet but it would be awesome if you could upload the OP for Bakuman on to Metanorn ^^

            I don’t think anyone else likes it nor would they upload it and I’d rather get it from Metanorn than any other site just in case I get punked or something ><"

  9. Kyokai says:

    I was a bit sad that they didn’t cut it but then again that have been too good to be true. Eiji makes me edgy… (I know that sounds almost same but…) as I haven’t read the manga I hope he plays the good guy rather than bad, as he’s voiced by the Tohru/Usui/Accelerator seiyuu, Nobohiko Okamoto.

    • Hoshi says:

      ~Not even up to the parts I’ve read in the manga can I tell if Eiji is a good or bad guy yet. I have I feeling he will be bad in the sense of he’s their main competition, but as for being good…We’ll just have to wait and see~.

      • Tofu says:

        OMG Eiji~~ I swear they should make him appear more on the anime ><" You only see him at the end basically for not even a minute…. OH! I just saw episode 9 and what Eiji did at the end made me laugh xD

        I ain't gonna spoil it for you guys ^^

        I have a feeling his got bad intentions but is a good person in a way? I don't know…

  10. Leah-san says:

    Ah, I liked this episode.

    And Hoshi, I know it’s completly unrelated, but, can you please tell me where to read or download the Doukyuusei Sequel Sotsugyousei in English? I just found the first chapter and the rest was Chinese -3- (Yes, Chinese. Not Japanese.) I want to read it sooo badly >___<
    And maybe other of her works. Damn! Do you know where to read them?

    • Hoshi says:

      ~It’s all right Leah-san ^^
      Well, I haven’t been able to read the Doukyuusei sequel myself so I’m sorry I can’t help you there ;A; The person who translated lost all her files I believe so =A=;
      As for her other works, I actually download them straight from the translating groups website. The two main ones are here and here.

  11. Joojoobees says:

    I enjoyed this episode. That purple-haired girl should be happy that Shuujin’s changed priorities makes the top spot available. Very happy about The Punch. Someone who sticks up for a friend is a GOOD PERSON.

    I’ll also echo the sentiment that I hope the OP changes for the second half.

    • Tofu says:

      naww~ Is the OP really that bad for everyone? 🙁 I…I like it… (please don’t kill me!)

      But you’ll be surprised what happens in Episode 9 Joojoobees, especially with Shuujin and the girl~ xD

  12. Mimiko ♥ says:

    FALCON Lolicon Punch!!

    enough said for this episode XD

  13. berrish17 says:

    yayyyy goo Shuujin!!!! lol

  14. ichigopockysticks says:

    That was an awesome punch I found the manga the other day and was really tempted to buy it. >.< I should have.

    • Hoshi says:

      ~Yes it was 8DDD
      And I’d recommend not to if you wanna keep watching the anime. I bought the second volume, and now it seems a little boring to watch because I know what happens ><;
