    Other manga starring manga artists?

    So with the end of Bakuman, are there other manga starring manga artists and their paths of creating manga you know about to check 'em out?


    The ones I know are:

    - Genshiken. Not really about making manga, but it is a recurring plot point.

    - Manga Mitaina Koi Shitai
    Quote Quote:
    Rena lives a double life as a normal high school girl and a mangaka artist drawing sexy love scenes. All seems to be going well until she accidentally bumped into popular high school idol, Tomoya. Rushing away from the encounter, Rena suddenly realized that she has lost her latest draft! Quickly rushing to school, she was surprised to se Tomoya waiting for her. Could this be end of her drawing days? What does Tomoya have in store for her?
    It got a sequel called Zoku Manga Mitaina Koi Shitai

    - Comic Studio
    Quote Quote:
    20-year-old Aihara Minoru has come to Tokyo to make his dreams of becoming an action manga artist come true. To his amazement, he lands a job as a live-in assistant of his favorite mangaka, Takakura Kenji, who writes a popular fighting manga called "Ultimate Banchou."

    Upon arriving at his new workplace, however, he discovers that his idol is not the tough guy he'd always imagined. The truth is, Takakura Kenji is the pen name of Sekai Ichiko, a girl his age who is basically a moe character (she looks and acts like a little kid). After Aihara's obvious disappointment starts them off on the wrong foot, it's going to be tough for him to prove to her that he has what it takes to be a manga artist!
    I'm gonna check this one out.


    Any other titles you know and like to share with us?

    I Am A Hero has a similiar sub-theme. IIRC so does Manga-san to Assistant-san.

    I Am A Hero is a little different.The first volume does have a little to do with assostants and manga-ka,but you know about the rest.

    I'll edit this post later with some suggestions,as I can't think of a single title from the top of my head.

    Manga Mitaina Koi Shitai sounds like a cheesey intro to a typical shoujo rom-com manga...

    Might give Comic Studio a look though.

    Perhaps not the best example, but there are quite a few chapters in Sket Dance that are about making (shojo)manga. And they're hilarious, some of them including Bakuman jokes !

    How about Even a Monkey can Draw Manga? I forgot I read this ages ago. It's more as a tutorial done in old-style manga rather than a manga with a plot.

    Not exactly manga, but Doujin Work is a manga about a girl trying to become a well-known doujinshi artist to make money. It's rather ecchi and humorous.
