Seconded, I'm expecting lots of drama to come up because of this, possibly leading to the end or a reboot of PCP. Either way it will be good for the plot, should give it a push forward.

So you need the manga to get canceled but it'd be hard to see why PCP would sundenly start droping in the ratings,so they needed another reason and this is it.
but Death Note didn't get cancelled, so I wonder now whether the authors will go for an outcome that will follow their own experience.

Hm, I wonder if they're planning to use Niizuma again to push the duo onto a new project...

Oh, they brought back that plot point at last. As expected, PCP didn't get cancel by Jump, but it might get canceled by Niizuma now... Didn't he love PCP though? It's a bit harsh to think about canceling this manga just because the quality dropped a bit those past weeks. Maybe it's a red herring and he intends to cancel a completely different manga.

Apparetnly the reason is because Takagi has gotten rather tame in the name department as a result. (not taking any risks, etc).

Maybe Niizuma will cancel PCP because it's holding them back thanks to the current situation?

i doubt that Niizuma will cancel PCP. nor will the chief let him cancel a series.

at the start the chief agreed only cause he knew that Niizuma would find out how hard it was to be a manga-ka.

as for Akito, he will soon get over it by himself or by all the other manga-ka's supporting him.

Oh yeah, and that's the second time those two have talked about potential kids isn't it? Really weird to think of her as a mom, since we've been with them this whole time.

To me, this is one of the things that makes Bakuman so great. Within 131 chapters, how much time has passed? We've literally been able to watch all these characters grow and change. As cliche as it would be, I wouldn't mind watching an epilogue where their kids are in middle school with the same dreams.

I think the year is 2016 now in the manga.

That or his editor's just overthinking things

While this might take awhile, the 'endgame' as I'd like to call it could be in sight. Finally seeing the Cancel One Series card, and this might lead to the next series that gets them the anime, after they overtake the #1 spot from Eiji. Dunno if they mean One Piece is top since Oda was mentioned, but who knows. I think they've avoided making a fictional manga #1 so they can retain some element of realism because everyone knows OP is king. Anyway, we definitely needed some real conflict involving Ashirogi Muto, preferably with Eiji involved, and we got it. Looking forward to this. Does seem like an appropriate time for Eiji to play this card on PCP, but it'd almost be too obvious.

Yeah, he's probably overthinking things

Niizuma asked about the difference in votes between the first and the second places while reading the latest chapter of PCP, which is a pretty good hint at what series he's targeting. The reason might be that pretty much both his rankings and Muto's rankings have become kind of stale, but with him taking the second place and PCP sitting at 4th, there's no way to shake the things in a regular way. The duo noted themselves that as of late, they were pretty satisfied with their current success and set their goal of overcoming Niizuma and getting the first place & the anime aside, which is something you can be sure Niizuma took notice of. And the recent drop in quality just indicates that if left unattended, the things aren't going to get any better.
All in all, Niizuma has both the motivation and the means to cancel PCP, but whether he's able to do so or not is a different matter. After all, from the very beginning all the editors were pointing out that while Niizuma is sure to be popular, he doesn't have the capability to become number one...

Nothing much really happened in 132. It was basically just Takagi panicking. I hope this doesn't mean the authors themselves are running out of ideas...

I think it could be reflective of how they reacted to the murder incident with the Death Note copycat? Or did that happen after they'd finished the series?

Loved this chapter, especially because of the fact that it didn't end in a cliffhanger, and we got the result on the last page.

Shuujin isn't the only one back on top form, Ooba is too. Bakuman's quality has increased a lot these past couple weeks. This arc's really interesting.
