From the awesome duo that brought you Death Note, comes a story about....manga? Yes, Bakuman is the exciting story of two boys. One boy wants to create manga to accomplish his dreams and show off his excellent writing skills to the world. The other wants to dazzle the girl of his dreams with his amazing art (And help her accomplish her dream of becoming a voice actor). Honestly, it's more exciting than it sounds. Give this great new manga a try. Trust me, it's better than Blue Dragon...

Oh God,please don't make this an awesome one-shot manga that only appear once in a lifetime.
This will be a running serie in Jump,right?It looks pretty cool.
Yeah, this is a full fledged serialization.
Based on what was translated by someone, it does seem to be a shonen series about...manga. Yes, manga. They did a series about guys writing names so they decided to do the next step: a writer and an artist!
The manga making mangas are usually quite entertaining and goofy.(though I've also seen creepy and crazy ones) They don't often last very long though. We'll have to wait and see.

OH!So this manga is about manga-making?That sounds good.I hope this manga will boil my blood just like Hoero Pen did.
P.S:It's funny how the two protagonist in this manga is a story writer and artist.Just like Ohba-sensei and Obata-sensei.
This looks pretty cool, can't wait to see something new from Ohba-sensei. When does the first chapter come out?
Anime news network says that they are advertising this manga as "explosive." This leads me to believe that the name may actually being a pun. Maybe it doesn't have to do with manga. It could deal with explosions. It doesn't really look light hearted from the picture anyway. We will know in a few days. Anyone feel like translating the picture below?
The drawing style reminds me rather on Hikaru no Go instead of Death Note. Looking forward to it!
The shonen jump site has the "next issue cover" preview thing up for the next issue (37-38), so there are pics of this.
I assume it's not considered a spoiler if the series hasn't started yet...
Okay, the colour page immediately screams that the art improvement still isn't too evident........ shame
