Just As Planned : BAKUMAN

Hattori : Just As Planned

Hattori : Just As Planned

Death Note might sound like a cliche by now, but not Bakuman. Clearly, it’s not about how a crafty student trying to get away from a detective who is crazy about dropping insane amount of sugar cubes in his coffee.

It’s actually yet another collaboration done by the same duo who brought you Death Note, Ohba Tsugumi and Obata Takeshi. This is pretty old news, but if you had yet to know this title until now, this is the chance to hop onto the bandwagon since it’s currently running at its 26th chapters. Trust me, you definitely would want to crave more. I’m already drooling for 27th chapter already! T_T

Unlike the rabid days where I went to the extent to join a Chinese community forum just because it has extreme fast l33t speed in translating Death Note, I had now resorted to reading Bakuman only when I remembered to do so. Probably this is the “cold turkey” period for myself since I haven’t been dipping in anime anymore aside for Clannad and Toradora, but to be frank, the fact I still love reading manga are remained unchanged. I wouldn’t say because I don’t have the time to do, I can still do so now, marathroning every anime series, but the urge to do so were never as high as those golden days *reminiscing the olden days*

  1. I also eagerly wait for the next chapter.

      but I think good things are worth the wait! Let’s be patient together then! 😀

  3. BAKUMANZ!!!! Huge-not-so-spoilarz: There is a character named Eiji. !!!

    haha, ran out of things to say about Bakuman, I just wait for the next chapter.

    • I think all Bakuman readers already know that. hehe.

      • That’s why it’s a “Huge-not-so-spoilarz”.

        Hopefully it doesn’t end all “Death Note” like. With all them people dying and all.

        • It’s impossible that a lot of people would die on Bakuman story. 🙂 But really, I also didn’t like how Death Note end. (off topic)

    *cues dramatic music*

    *regains composure*
    …I’m waiting too. MIHO <33 <hmm….actually the whole cast is pretty lovable. lol ~_~

    • Agree. Each of them has their own distinctive characteristic. Fukuda’s my favorite. 🙂

  4. Done reading it. Seems to be too short. Miho and Mashiro are so sweet.

    Tsun, your blog post seems to be a forum for the Bakuman addicts. hehe.

      Obata has always been fond of drawing short chapters though, probably 19-21 pages per chapter.
      and…nah, this is no forum(!!) but am glad that you all liked this post! :3

  5. Haha. I know this isn’t a forum. I was just kidding.

    Yes, it’s short but the story and the drawings are really great!

      hehe, and because it’s so short, I’m craving for the next chapter already T_T;;;;

      • We’ll get the chap. after another loong grueling week. Worth the wait though.

          • July 19th, 2009

          though I wonder will this kind of wait eventually accumulate into years o w o

          • A hiatus is very not welcome, thank you very much.

              • tsun13
              • July 19th, 2009

              you just reminded me of Obata being caught due to possession of illegal weapon or something and nnuuuuu, I dont want a hiatus either! DDD:

  6. Chapter 47 OUTOOOO!!
