Bakuman is the work from Takeshi Obata and Tsugumi Ohba, the same creative team who made Death Note and Takeshi Obata is also the illustrator of Hikaru’s Go (Hikaru No Go). The series was first introduced through Weekly Shonen Jump before it was published into manga and then gets serialized in television.
Bakuman is a hidden masterpiece from the duo, sadly it is not as famous as their previous work Death Note. It is a comedy drama anime that has a shounen-like style. The anime give the same feeling as many action shounen anime do.
