Considered one of the best animes by J.C. Staff Studio, “Bakuman” is a poignant exploration of the multifaceted world of manga creation, where ambition, dedication, and the pursuit of one’s true calling converge.
In the realm of artistic aspirations and the pursuit of dreams, “Bakuman” ventures into the life of Moritaka Mashiro, a young boy who, in his formative years, harbored ambitions of becoming a mangaka. Inspired by his uncle, Tarou Kawaguchi, the genius behind a beloved gag manga, Moritaka’s imagination knew no bounds.However, fate intervenes in the most unexpected way, extinguishing the flames of his childhood dreams. With the weight of tragedy on his shoulders, he forgoes his artistic passions and dedicates his middle school days to a different pursuit – the conventional path of becoming a salaryman.
Yet, a chance encounter beckons. Akito Takagi, Moritaka’s classmate and a prodigious writer, stumbles upon a notebook adorned with intricate, compelling drawings. Recognizing the extraordinary potential concealed within Moritaka’s artistic expressions, Akito makes a proposition that would forever alter the course of their lives. He presents the idea of embarking on a shared journey as mangaka, crafting stories that could captivate the masses.
After much deliberation, Moritaka succumbs to the allure of this proposition. He envisions a future where the fruits of their collaboration yield not only artistic fulfillment but also the realization of a personal dream – winning the heart of Miho Azuki, the girl of his affection, by involving her in the voice acting for the anime adaptation of their work. Together, they assume the guise of “Muto Ashirogi” and plunge headlong into the waters of the manga industry, aspiring to etch their names as the preeminent mangaka in Japan.

Hailing from a prestigious family, he is renowned for his strong pursuit of perfection, a quality that extends not only to his own performance but to his expectations of others as well. However, one obstacle prevents Shinichi from embarking on his European odyssey: a paralyzing fear of flying, which effectively grounds him in Japan.
As Shinichi enters his fourth year at Japan’s preeminent music university, fate introduces him to Megumi Noda, a young woman who prefers to go by the moniker “Nodame.” At first glance, Nodame appears to be an aimless and unkempt individual with little direction in life.

Shoujo Kakumei Utena
Years ago, a heart-wrenching tragedy struck a young princess when she lost both her parents. In the depths of her despair, it seemed as though nothing could mend her shattered soul. However, a ray of hope emerged when a benevolent prince crossed her path. Driven by the desire to bring a smile back to her face, the prince consoled the grieving princess, wiping away her sorrowful tears. He bestowed upon her a ring adorned with a delicate rose emblem, delivering a promise that their fates would intertwine once more. This encounter left a strong mark on the girl, the “Shoujo Kakumei” Utena Tenjou, and ignited within her a resolve to become a prince in her own right.
As years passed, Utena found herself enrolled at Ootori Academy, an institution bearing the same emblem as her cherished ring. There, an aroma of roses led her to a peculiar scene: amongst the blossoms stood Anthy Himemiya, diligently tending to the flowers, her presence attracting the attention of the Student Council President, Touga Kiryuu, and the Vice President, Kyouichi Saionji, engaged in a tense exchange over Anthy’s fate. At this point, Utena merely observed the situation, unaware of the momentous events she was about to be drawn into.
Then, in the wake of a bewildering incident, our “Shoujo Kakumei” Utena is thrust into the realm of the Duelists – individuals who possess rings akin to her own. These Duelists engage in fierce battles for the possession of the enigmatic Rose Bride, Anthy Himemiya, who is rumored to wield unprecedented power. Driven by her determination to prove herself as a true prince and incensed by the mistreatment and objectification of Anthy, Utena embarks on a mission to confront the Duelists and rescue Anthy from a cruel destiny.
