Said it better than I ever could. Bakuman has always been dropping real manga and magazine names left, right, and center, and this slice of realism is a big part of its allure. The "Jack" thing might seem like a small thing but it makes the entire picture somewhat ridiculous. What a letdown. I could understand it if Bakuman was not originally running in Jump, but since it came out of Jump, the editorial department there had a big part to play with getting the anime adaptation rolling - it would have been possible to negotiate this point and keep the Jump reference. I guess they can't get away with this bit of free advertising though.

As far as I know Jump isn't shy of putting their name in their own franchise.
So I assume this decision was influenced by the fact Bakuman is running on an educational NHK channel. It's like PBS in America.
I don't know about these days, but back when I was living in Japan NHK Kyouiku TV (NHK Educational TV) was ad-free channel.
That may have played a part in the decision.

Nonetheless, we as consumer and fans, of couse, don't give a flying hoot what the political or business decision made this happen.
We're just fumed that it did.

Heh, not surprising considering the stuff NHK does. IIRC Tsubasa Chronicle's subpar tv anime was forced to remove all references to alcohol which ruined some of it's funnier moments.

That aside, I liked the episode. I'm glad the letter trading thing wasn't just sheer dumb coincidence and that my guess was right. The talk they had with Miho's mother's croissants was rather nice and the fact her croissants she is voiced by Inoue Kikuko was a fitting choice. She's always nice to listen to. Looking forward to them getting into the manga industry more, though an anime by 18 is quite a stretch.

I fee like eating croissants now. Haven't felt this way since Ladies vs Butlers!

They've already mentioned quite a few manga series already (Dragon Ball, Kochikame, Ashita no Joe, etc...), so TLR references shouldn't be a problem. They've only replaced Jump with Jack. It's so weird to hear them talk about getting into Jack...

Death Note was also mentioned. Funny how they can advertise manga series but not the magazine they were serialized in. Bummer.

couldn't agree more. it's way too contradictory. i really want to know why; i'm sure the fans in Japan are raging; anyone can dig out any news on why only 'Jump' was changed??

There's a difference between removing alcohol references and changing the name of a well known magazine from Jump to Jack despite keeping every other indicator that the magazine in question is indeed Jump.

In france a show can reference "artistic works" but not "brands" like magasines or tv networks so for exemple a show could mention the name of another tv show but not the name of the channel it's airing on.

Wonder if Japan has similar laws?

Mediocre animation, no moe, no sex, no action. Great writing - check. Great story - check.

The manga has quite the huge following you know. Maybe not on this forum, though there's still a good number of posts in the thread, so there's no problem there.

I'm just not following the adaptation because i don't like it.

not much to talk about. they're still developing the stuff. though i feel we're about to get to the main portion now, when they work on their manga and compete with the other mangaka.

Watching Bakuman makes appreciate manga very very much, it's alot of work! O_O;;

I love the manga refrences and spend time recognizing them. Also, looking at Saiko and Azuki makes me sigh and remember old school romance. Nowadays it's all like "Wassup *unzips*". XD

Just started watching this anime. As a Bakuman manga reader, I don't have a problem with the animation. In fact, the animated version brings alive that vibrant feel of the show. The excitement of Takagi and Mashiro over this new venture, their determination to make it big, their dynamic interaction, Mashiro's innocent feelings for Miho.... Been a while since an anime grabs me like this (except for Fairy Tail). So yeah, I quite look forward to the next episode of Bakuman even though I know what's gonna happen.
