    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...

    Re: Baku-man by Ohba x Obata

    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.

    Re: Baku-man by Ohba x Obata (Death Note creators)

    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! :p

    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, that sounds cool. Looks like it'll be light-hearted this time, which I approve of. Thanks for the info.

    Re: Baku-man by Ohba x Obata (Death Note creators)

    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.

    http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/new...te-creators-confirmed-to-launch-bakuman-manga

    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! :clap

    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...

    Re: Baku-man by Ohba x Obata (Death Note creators)

    Ok, I guess I'll do it.
    絵の才能がある主人公は、ある男子に漫画家になろうと勧められる
    だが、主人公は頑なに拒否
    The main character has the ability to draw, the young man there says he
    should become a mangaka and encourages him. But the main character obstinately
    refuses.

    話の流れで主人公が想いを寄せる女の子のところへ行くと、女の子が声優志望で
    あることが判明
    As the story continues, the main character's feelings gather as he goes
    to a young girl. It's established the girl has a wish to become a seiyuu
    (voice actor).
    そこで、主人公は自分達の書いた漫画のヒロインの声優をやってくれと提案
    So the main character proposes that she come and be his own manga's heroin's
    seiyuu.

    主人公「だからその夢が叶ったら 結婚してください」
    Main character: "So when that dream comes true, please marry me."

    女の子は照れて家の中に入るも、インターホンで「はい・・・」という返事
    でも、女の子は夢が叶うまで会わないと言う
    The young girl also becomes shy, over the intercom "Yes..." is the reply.
    But it is said that her dream still hasn't come true.

       なってやるマンガ家に! そして僕は亜豆と結婚する!! 
    I'll become a mangaka! And I'll marry Azu!!

    [I'm guessing a bit on the name, could be a combination of a couple other
    things depending on what they pick, or however names work. Could be Atou,
    Ashiazu, or Ashiatou, too. Might even be something else, you'd need someone
    better at names or else check the furigana when the chapter comes out.]

    終わり
    End.

    I dunno why he never gives the names of the actual characters, though. I guess we'll need to wait for that. Looks pretty good, though it doesn't seem like a "death note" sorta thing, at all really.

    Re: Baku-man by Ohba x Obata (Death Note creators)

    Thanks kewl0210!


    Well there's an other spoiler which seems to be more complete:

    1ページ 夢と現実

    主人公は中三の「真城最高(ましろ・もりたか)」
    特に将来やりたいこともないが親や世間体のためにとりあえず引き篭もらず勉強をしている
    絵で数々のコンクールで入賞
    叔父に漫画家を持つ(もう死んでいる 最高は自殺した、と考えている)
    そしてクラスメイトに片思い中
    授業中に片思いの子「アズキ」をノートに模写 
    家に帰り、中間テストが控えてるため勉強をしようとするも模写をしていたノートが見当たらない事に気付く
    なくても勉強には困らないがノートが誰かに見られるのはマズイ
    そして教室に取りに行くと同級生で秀才の「高木秋人」が
    「見られたか!?」「そんな深刻な顔するなよ【デスノート】ってわけでもないし」
    こんな感じのやり取りが続き、秋人は最高に「自分が文章、最高が作画」で漫画家を目指そう、と提案
    とりあえず拒否するもあまりのしつこさに嫌気をさすが、一日考える猶予をもらう
    帰宅しゲームで遊んでいたところ母にテスト勉強をするようにキツめに促され憤慨する最高
    すると秋人から電話が「いまからアズキに告白するからお前も来い!」
    とりあえずアズキの家に行くとそこには豪邸が
    アズキは声優を目指していることが発覚
    そしてある約束を取り付ける
    「最高と秋人が漫画を描き、それがアニメになったらアズキがヒロインの声優をやる そしてアズキは最高と結婚する」と
    そしてこの約束(夢)が叶うまで最高とアズキは会う事はない、メールはよしとする
    しかし最高は秋人と組むとは決めてない
    そして「漫画の達人」風の指南書を購入、で終わり

    次回、「馬鹿と利口」
    新時代サクセスストーリーらしいです
