Because it's an art. Either you blow or you don't. Like musicians; painters; sculptures and etc...Money just doesn't come in regularly. That's what I'm expecting from this manga. More on the hardships of an struggling manga artist. But that'll never happen I guess since it's a shonen title.

I wonder if this person was Gamou/Ohba himself, really his son, or a staff member close to him.
Eh, that's interesting. Could you provide any links?

Hmm. I just read that first chapter. Wow. How cute. I wasn't expecting it to be this adorable. Mashiro is incredibly cute and I just wanted to hug him (yep, I am *that* weird). I assume he's going to turn into a pretty likeable character, unlike Light. But then again, those two stories are so different! Even more than what I expected. So far this seems lighthearted and sweet. Of course, this is NOT the new Death Note, and it's never going to be, in my opinion, it sounds more like an autobiography of some sorts and I seriously doubt the story is going to be half as intrincate as DN. But after this first chapter, I'll dissociate Bakuman from DN the best I can.
This looks very promising so far. I'm pleased.

At first the whole manga sounds like the author ranting about how difficult it is to become a mangka. It became quite interesting later, often taking those ridiculous turns in plot. No idea how this will develop though.

The original thread is long gone, considering it was over 3 month ago.
Here's a log of the thread.

It's quite fitting though, considering how both of them were struggling for years in the manga industry, until they found each other.
One can draw like no other, but was struggling to write stories that captivated the readers... and the other had the artistic talent of a 6 year old, but knew how to write. This manga really does seem like reflections of themselves.

The first chapter was pretty entertaining.

It really was a bit unexpected that he proposed, and got accepted.

I just hope they focus on the love of the characters as much as the life of a mangaka. Which kind of worries me, because they are not allowed to see each other...

And I hope they aim for a realistic portrayal of their situation like Hikaru no Go, so maybe 1 out of 3 of them would fail.

I like it because if they way it was executed. His friend write the story and the main character draws. He better damn hope that he fulfill his dream and make it big if he want the girl of his dream.

Just some tibits news...

Shueisha's Jumpland electronic manga site has posted the first chapter of the Bakuman manga from the Death Note writer/artist duo of Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata for free in English, French, German, and Japanese on Monday. The website's manga installments require a proprietary browser that only runs on the Microsoft Windows XP or Vista operating system. Bakuman's story follows two 14-year-old Japanese high school boys who decide to write and draw their own manga.

The Jumpland website has already been posting chapters of Death Note, Bleach, and D.Gray-man since June 30. However, Bakuman is the first manga that Shueisha has released online in multiple languages before it has been released in print outside Japan. Bakuman had just begun on August 11 in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in Japan. Jumpland's English manga chapters will be free until August 31.

Chapter 2's not bad, but I didnt' like their take on "a girl's life".

A lil' bit too much of a generalization.

I think it's more because it's a shounen manga. A lot of Japanese manga enforce equality between the sexes.

Anyway, I never knew being a seiyuu is a typical Japanese girl's dream
