    Re: Bakuman 141 Discussion / 142 Prediction

    Death Note wise, L wasn't pure evil at first...he had good intentions, only later did he get corrupted. But I think Ashirogi Muto is aiming for a crime villain being the main character, like maybe Lupin or Kaitou Kid, except eviller. Since Sigma is pulling crimes, but it isn't clear if he's evil or not.
    I really doubt they're going to do a Death Note series, since Ohba and Obata don't seem the type to make references to their own mangas, and the timeline suggests that Death Note is already over...but these are just my speculations.

    Buut, when I look at his reaction after that old man said he's getting Hattori ["Hattori?! Which Hattori is it?!] it could.. hmm..
    Nope, the way he's talking isn't Fukuda style at all.
    But half of his face sure looks like Fukuda xDD
    Great chapter. I enjoyed it a lot.

    I wouldn't think about Fukuda but I would think more about shun shiratori being our mysterious guy. Shiratori wouldn't want to publicly release this manga given his age, or maybe he wouldn't be, given his age, allowed to release something (hence the age issue), or it must be that he doesn't want to embarrass his family. He is very young while he uses an old mediator who is known by a wsj editor. He first asked Miura and then he asked Hattori. Those are two editors he has probably known because of ashirogi mutou.

    I think this mysterious guy is a guy that has never been shown in the manga at all.
    I think he's someone completely new. Someone who has prior experience in manga from another publisher.

    Re: Bakuman 141 Discussion / 142 Prediction

    Bakuman is like a novel at some points.
    The author is putting too much text info in one story.

    I'm not complaining, it just baffles me how the artist is able to correlate eac text with his drawings so fast and naturally.

    It was like these two people are the perfect team to create something as good as Bakuman/Death Note.

    FACTS

    Takeshi Obata was a mentor for few big series author/creator. Kentaro Yabuki (Black cat), Yusuke Murata (ES21) Nobuhiro Natsuki (Samurai X) all had been his assistant at some point.

    and the famous Eiichiro Oda was an assistant for Nobuhiro Natsuki. What else to speak

    Yeah Obata is great but I couldn't agree with that analogy.

    Let say, you got assigned to be an assistant of either Arai, Koogy or Ishizawa in Bakuman, therefore you deserved to be belittle by everyone in the future because those mangakas aren't that good?

    Re: Bakuman 141 Discussion / 142 Prediction

    This arc is about a mangaka with an external editor (i.e. not employed by Shuiesha). The old guy created the whole manga but the secret man helped him strengthen and improve it. Any one with me on this?

    Re: Bakuman 141 Discussion / 142 Prediction

    I'm with the idea that the old guy is just in charge of drawing, and the story and this whole overarching "plan" is done by the other mysterious guy.

    Heishi described the old guy as someone who is good at drawing girls and panties, but couldn't write a story to save his life. That's why he didn't last long even in Shonen Three. Please do not tell me it took him 30 years for an idea for a good manga to hit him in the head....

    Re: Bakuman 141 Discussion / 142 Prediction

    am i right if i say that the authors of bakuman are doing exactly what ashirogi kun is trying to do? not just this arc, but also the other previous arcs, starting from that arc when they were still thinking of a new series after tanto (PCP).hattori told them to have their next series as "serious humor" there was one point in there where there was serious humor. Since then, bakuman itself became serious humor in some points in the story. also, when takagi planned to do a morally ambiguous manga, a morally ambiguous character did appear on bakuman (Nanamine kun). and then, in this arc, ashirogi kun is planning to do a non mainstream yet mainstream battle with a mysterious character which we dont know if he represents justice or evil. And Bakuman itself has that kind of character (the mysterious guy). does anyone agree?

    I completely agreed with your assessment;
    there's multiple purposeful parallels.

    I just meant to say that Obata is a great mangaka. and surely when you got assigned to be someone's assistant you should learn from him. And yes Obata didn't make who Oda is right now, but surely he has indirectly impacted Oda somehow.
