So, yay, Bakuman has gotten green lit for a third season next Fall. Now, I only need to catch up with Season 2… *cough* so I don’t end up accidentally not finishing it. Don’t look at me like that, it already happend once with Tegami Bachi Reverse. I still need to finish it. D:
But I’m really happy about Bakuman, because I’ve been reading the manga for a long time now and it’s still pretty good. And when I say “a long time” I mean ever since the 9th oder 10th chapter was published and Bakuman was considered a secret gem with great potential. There have been times it was a bit… meh, but it never fails to come up with something amazing again, so I haven’t lost faith yet and I still enjoy it. I have to admit, I don’t read the japanese chapters anymore, because I decided I only want to read the german volumes since they started publishing this manga here (I usually read both, but in case of Bakuman… don’t know, it’s just the way it is). The latest volume here was volume 11 and oh my god was it great, one of the best so far, I can hardly wait until January when volume 12 comes out.
To make a long story short: is it good? Yes, both manga and anime, although personally I think the manga works out better. It’s normal the manga is better than the anime, but in this case there’s also the fact that a manga about writing manga somehow works better than an anime about writing manga, if you know what I mean.
Is it worth a thrid yeason? You can bet.
Now, if you excuse me, I have to watch a few Bakuman S2 episodes.
