Bakuman – 09

And you thought your love life was crazy~

~(Sorry for the late post everyone =3=;) So I received some requests to showcase my own crappy artwork in my last Bakuman post, and I delivered as promised! I’m sorry for the crappy quality; my scanner isn’t the most up-to-date thing. These are merely doodles of Shuujin and Saikou I managed to scribble out during class, so I hope you enjoy even if they’re not colored. I’m not a coloring person anyways, heh. Thank you very much to all of you who asked and for making feel like I’m actually talented in drawing ^^; Now onto what we’re really here for; BAKUMAN EPISODE 9!

After Shuujin’s (epic) fight with Ishizawa, he is suspended from school for a week, leaving Saikou alone to ponder on whether he really is holding Shuujin down.

THAT’S RIGHT! YOU GOT YOUR FACE F-D UP SUCKA! (sorry…something is escaping from me |’D)

However, with a little encouragement from his grandfather and a chapter in his uncle’s manga, Saikou escapes his dreary mood and regains his confidence back.

Grandpa saves the day again.

He decides to visit Shuujin’s house to check up on him, and upon arriving there, sees not only that he’s his normal self but that Iwase and Kaya are there!

Shuujin tells him that apparently Iwase and him are going out since she shook hands with him back in seventh grade, while Kaya is angry because supposedly he confessed to her while he was “dating” Iwase.

Sooo, can I shake a Asian guys hand and interpret it as we’re dating? Hmmm…*crazy, creeper thoughts*

Finally Kaya interrupts them and asks Takagi which one he’s going to go out with. He boldy tell them he doesn’t want to go out with any of them, but annoyingly smart Iwase drags it on by asking if he likes her. Shuujin tells that he likes them both if it was paired up with dislike (meaning he doesn’t mean it in a romantic way), yet they like him in a more romantic way. (Is your head hurting too, or is it just me?)

Bitches, please. I’m with Saikou.

Shuujin starts freaking out and tells them he wants to become a manga artist; he doesn’t have time for dates and the like. Kaya says she’ll support him, but Iwase tells him he needs to quit and that he’ll regret it later if he doesn’t. With a little speech about chasing his dreams, and mentioning he wants to go to North High, Iwase decides to leave, technically giving Shuujin to Kaya. Shuujin decides to tell Kaya about Saikou and Azuki and the only reason he needed to talk to her was because he needed more info on Azuki. Kaya is shocked, but then quickly punches him in anger.

Second most epic punch of Bakuman XD

Kaya tells him to let her punch him three more times to make her feel better, and that afterwards, will he go out with her? Shuujin frantically accepts, ready for her punches.

Girls: We’re scary when we’re mad…

…but cute for boys (sometimes).

As the crazy romance-tastic episodes closes, we once again see Eiji with his editor as they arrive in Tokyo. Eiji continuously stares at a crow, and is it crows, he gets a bit…excited and runs off, his editor frantically chasing after him.

I feel sorry for that editor…

Ehhh?! No more Bakuman Enthusiasm Injections?! What the woodchuck–?!


Saikou: Technically that’s a good thing…

End thoughts: Come on, you know you like Eiji more now after that last part in the episode xD I like him even more now after that little bit; he’s just so awesomely weird. He’s that weird, cool guy at school that you secretly want to be friends with, but don’t because he might be too creepy. Again, this was another “NEEDS MOAR EIJI” kind of episode where they only showed him at the end for what? A minute? MOAR EIJI PLEASE!

Anyways, I really enjoyed this chapter in the manga, and even more now that it’s animated. I found it extremely hysterical how both girls had these ridiculous reasons to think that Shuujin liked them, especially Iwase’s handshake thing xD I was like, “Are you serious?! I should try that then…”.  The reason I like the animated version more is because of the faces they have them make. I’m a sucker for weird, WTF faces and such (if you couldn’t tell from my manga posts). The manga had more odd angles than funny faces, if that makes any sense.

While the girls were bugging him, I couldn’t help but think Shuujin could have said he was with Saikou and totally just cut the conversation right there, hahaha XD Nothing makes girls more awkward and quiet than finding out the guy they like is gay (trust me, I’ve seen it happen). Of course, that’s just my ridiculous suggestion. I don’t even think they’d make a good couple, yaoi doujinshi-wise; I don’t get why some girls like them together…All right, I’m going to stop my rambling here…Sorry, I’m forgetting my audience |’D

The only thing I didn’t like was the beginning where Saikou is a bit depressed over what happened; it was really slow and boring. I would yell something out, but then again I’ve been in mental situations like that myself and doing that would be very hypocritical of me |’D Overall though, it was a fairly good episode; it just didn’t get really entertaining till the end.


It looks like Kaya is not only allowed into the apartment, but is also kicking some more Shuujin butt (my poor Takagi…). The boys are also back with Mr. Hattori to possibly discuss more about their future in manga? Looks like another manga-making information episode! Until next week then~

    Wonder why Shujin is so uninterested in these woman falling at his feet. He should’ve just chosen both and started a harem. Maybe invite Saiko if he feels adventurous too. They can shake hands all they want…WAIT, I’M GETTING OFF TRACK, THIS SHOW IS ABOUT MANGA.

    I want more Eiji too…Ugh, when are all the cool characters going to be in the anime, huh?

    • Hoshi says:

      ~Dude seriously! That’d be interesting…WHY DO WE GET SO DISTRACTED?

      I knowww =3=; I have a feeling we won’t for a long time too because the anime is going to 24 episodes; they can drag at as long as they want…(wow I’m going to be blogging about Bakuman for a long time, I just realized that |’D)

      • Tofu says:

        @Overcooled: Did you mean to say invite Saiko into the harem and then… they can shake hands all they want? err…. xD Anyways! If Shuujin did end up being all pimp or player that would annoy me ( I know that I shouldn’t relates anything to RL but I hate guys who 2 time or 3 time or however far the number wants to go and ends up ruining those girls heart because he just used them) LIKE IN SCHOOL DAYS!!!! ARH!!! I SO WANTED TO BASH THAT….THAT GUY!!! But overall Bakuman = awesomeness to non-stop *injects some Bakuman enthusiam drugs* oooh~ yeaaah~

        Show ▼

        @Hoshi: We all want more Eiji!!! xD But sadly we still have to be patient till Eiji finally gets more than a minute worth in the anime ><" His definitely an awesome character, that's for sure! ^^ Now~ time to catch up on my animes

  2. Namika says:

    Am I the only one who dislikes Eiji??? oO” No, seriously… I have nothing against this character, but that stupid yelling of his irritates me to no end O_O but anyway…..
    I feel like I’m falling in love with Takagi more & more, with every single episode! And I can’t stop loving Bakuman WTF faces XD I’m also a sucker for that))))) The part about depressed Moritaka was indeed a bit slow, but I don’t mind, as long as this show keeps up it’s hysteric and FTW atmosphere! ^_____^

    • Hoshi says:

      ~I can understand how he’s irritating xD It’s all right girl!

      Oh me too *A* Takagi is so cool~ (We’re gonna start sounding like Kaya now, hahaha!) And yes, Bakuman never fails to deliver some sort of hilarious and FTW aspect in an episode.

      • Namika says:

        *whew* O_O
        I don’t mind sounding like Kaya though))) she’s a cute character as well ^_^

  3. Nadia says:

    Shuujin’s such an [accidental] player in this episode. xD This is one of my favorites so far. HOORAY for WTF faces and weird poses!! I got so happy when they showed Ishizawa’s bandaged face, haha. He deserves it for dissing Saikou’s awesome art!

    Btw, Hoshi: RONALD KNOX Gravatar!! <3

    • Nadia says:

      Oh! And I forgot to mention how adorable those doodles of Shuujin and Saikou are! :3

    • Hoshi says:

      ~Seriously! xD YEAH GO WTF FACES~!! Oh I cheered when they showed Ishizawa’s face >:D And he got all scared looking at Saikou too, hahaha.

      HECK YEAH! XD Ronald Knox is love<3 He's finally coming out more in the Kuroshitsuji manga~.

  4. Junko says:

    Loved this chapter, loved this episode.

    I’ve already spoiled the entire series for myself by reading online but I don’t even care, anime ver. is still just as awesome

    • Hoshi says:

      ~Definitely xD Bakuman is awesome no matter how times you watch/read it hahaha.

      • Junko says:

        thanks to the manga I’ve pretty fallen in love with the adorably child like eiji, so I am also excite for his animated ver.

  5. anaaga says:

    *start shaking hands with U-know Yunho of DBSK*

    • Hoshi says:

      ~THAT’S A FANTASTIC IDEA!!!!!!!!!!!
      *shakes hands with Taemin*

  6. Alynn says:

    Pfft, Shujin. I just loved this episode.
    Eiji, why you be chasing crows? 😀
    Waahh! The next episode looks good.

    • Hoshi says:

      ~I was asking myself the same question; I have no idea why he was doing that x’D

      • Tofu says:

        I full LMAO-ED when Eiji went for the crow~ ahahahahaha xD Such an awesome character, I don’t see any reason why they wouldn’t show him more often ><"

  7. Tofu says:

    Yay for Bakuman episode 9!!! A lot of you guys are saying this weeks episode was slow paced at first, I think the slow pace fitted in the whole concept pretty well, you don’t want to rush a serious scene xD but anyways~ I actually read a chapter of Bakuman out of curiosity and now I know something I shouldn’t of known ><" I knew the basic concept of what was gonna happen between Shuujin and Kaya and also what they will become in the future~ (SPOILER!) xD

    Besides that Bakuman continue to inspire me in different ways, I'm not "being full of myself" here but how Saiko tackles that tough time of wondering continuously worrying whether or not Shuujin's skills are being restricted for himself, that resembled how I feel and react when something along those lines happen in RL. I tend to think for others and say that maybe there was something I did and I would just continuously ponder on and on about what I should do… As they say, doctors can heal others but can't heal themselves

    BTW!!! I'm loving your art work Hoshi~! It's brilliant especially for your highness *formal bow* It is yet another honor to be witnessing such a fine piece of art~

    • Hoshi says:

      ~Ayyyy Tofu-san, spoiling Bakuman for yourself! I actually did a little too so I shouldn’t be talking LOL x’D But it was completely by accident I swear!! And I can totally guess what’s going to happen with Shuujin and Kaya xD

      Ah, I hear your Tofu; I tend to do that myself sometimes…I also find myself being a lot like Shuujin though (except for the getting good grades part |’D).


      • Tofu says:

        The spoiling was…accidental ^^” an accidental curiosity~ and I’m sure you know what happens more than me anyways, I only read a chapter.

        HI 5 to relating ourselves to Bakuman main characters! xP I get good grades….sometimes….


        • Hoshi says:

          ~I’ll read a chapter, but then I’ll love it too much or get too into the story going on and I’ll keep reading |’D

          Same here…|’D I do really good at the start of school, but towards the end I’m just like, “Screw it” and become lazy |’D

          NO I’M NOT ;A;

  8. ichigopockysticks says:

    Thanks for the post late or not they are still fun to read
    Yeah I found vol 2 of the manga and started reading and some how in my brain I got it confused with the anime (I blame it on mass amounts of homework) and sat there for the last two episodes think “didn’t i already see this…” Yeah that is why I never read the manga while watching the anime to much confusion.

    • Hoshi says:

      ~Thanks<3 ;A;
      At the time, I was going to buy the first volume but as I flipped through it, I was like, "I basically already saw this," so I bought the second volume which started off right at where the anime episode had ended xD
      Yeah I hate buying the manga while I'm watching the anime too, which is why I'm glad the third volume won't be out till February so I won't be tempted...

  9. LuluChan92 says:

    Just gimme more Bakuman!!! Be it anime or manga, I just NEED MORE!!! XP

    AND I love Eiji!!! He needs more screen time, he’s such an AWESOME character!!!

    • Hoshi says:


      I know!! They can’t contain his awesomeness for long! XD

      • LuluChan92 says:

        OMG, I laughed my ass off watching him chasing that crow!!! It was just EPIC!!! :p

  10. wonton jr. says:

    What are you talking about Hoshi? Your artwork is great! Better than mine at least! * high-fives!*

    Anyway, I want more Bakuman! I loved it when Eiji was chasing crows I was like ^^ I do that too sometimes!!

    • Hoshi says:

      ~Thank you! I’m always self-conscious of my art… .////.

      Hahahahaha xD When Eiji did, I swear I wanted to do that too!

  11. Dan-go says:

    Ahhhh your doodles are soooooo cuuuuuute

          • Kyokai says:

            Do you both live in Australia?! 0.0
            I am enjoying winters though but boo to your vacations. I don’t get any. T_T

          • Tofu says:

            I certainly do live in Australia, the dry land in the hot summer sun, wearing cowboy hats as we round up the kangaroos and koalas all day long, sing Waltzing Matilda with whisky around the fire place all night ^^

            Do you live in Australia Dan? (If I’m correct, the Southern Hemisphere of the Earth is in Summer while the Northern Hemisphere of the Earth is in Winter)

          • Hoshi says:

            (I feel dumb…I didn’t even know that…)

          • Namika says:

            Oh, how I envy you! :<

  13. Teabie says:

    omigosh, is this what i’d been missing out all along? if i shook hands with the guy i like, i own exclusive rights to him!? is that all it takes!?? WTH!!? why only naaao?? XD

    anyway, i’m a mega megane shipper, so shujin tops my list when i first laid eyes on him. yes, i’m SO shallow. but now i really, really like him! loved the way he said, “i’m motte motte with the ladies now huh”, and saiko cut him off abruptly, haha! and no, i dun see the possibility of pairing them up in anywhere either. i like yaoi, so it’s not like i’m against the idea. they just don’t fit together at all. now, togainu no chi… hohoho~

    i’m withholding all internal thoughts abt eiji, bcos it’s premature to say anything. but ok, i’ll let slip that so far, i don’t like him. there you go, my big mouth saves the day again. XD

    after reading all the above comments, i will bear with it and NOT read the manga. NO.I.CANNOT.

    please do upload moar of your doodles!!! =D

    • Hoshi says:

      ~I KNOW RIGHT?! If I would’ve known earlier, I would have gotten a head start on my Asian boys harem LOL XD

      Same here!! Shuujin is just so awesome xD I’ve seen fanart of the two boys as a couple, but I’m like, “Ehhhh, it’s too odd”. :/ OH YEAH TOGAINU NO CHI, heheheheheheheheh.

      Ah it’s all right if you don’t like him 8) I know some who don’t too~. You can say whatever you want XD

      and maybe ;D Im actually surprised some people like them…

  14. Kyokai says:

    Oh Takagi, you adorable genius! <3 This definitely was another win episode, especially for Takagi. Also, I can't wait to know more about Eiji. What's his deal anyway?! I am so curious that I might just pick up the manga after all.

    Also, your doodles are so kawaiii, keep ’em up! <3

    • Hoshi says:

      ~He definitely is!<3 😀 Takagi is so far my favorite male character of Fall season (along with Kuranosuke heh). I'm sure they will show more of him later, it's just taking so long =A=;

      Uwahh~ thank you<3 I shall try!
