Bakuman 83

[chapter link]

Finally. I’ve been anxious to find out what the postcard signifies.

P2, middle panel: Very reminiscent of Yagami Light. Except, you know… that it’s about trailing someone instead of murder.

It’s great how seriously they’re taking this, turning off their phones and all.

Masks and sunglasses! This is fun.

Hattori’s selections at the bookstore: Absolutely priceless. This is exactly how to properly weave a narrative. Characters don’t always have to come out and explain plot.

Wow. Iwase looks gorgeous. As always, Obata’s art makes a great story even better.

“Your youth is certainly dazzling”? Hilarious.

Follow that taxi! This will be a fantastic episode when the anime gets this far.

So happy to hear that Hattori wanted to be their editor after all. I (like many others) always presumed as such, but it’s good to hear reassurance.

Takagi is finally inspired. After such an enjoyable chapter, I have huge hopes for whatever he comes up with.

Final Flash: Excellent chapter. The tone was a refreshing change of pace, we got to see a little more than expected from some side characters, and Takagi has an idea. Very fun read.

    When bakuman eventually comes to an end, they’ll have so many great mangas to write and draw, cause look at all of them they had to come up with just for this manga.. they could seriously take KTM, crow, Trap, +Natural… theres so much they could do after this manga its unreal… ohba is an exceptional mangaka to come up with mini mangas week in week out, and obata’s art just makes me want to draw and have a laugh trying to draw my own manga lol

      Completely agree. I was having a discussion with friends recently about what type of series Jump feels like it’s missing, and we came the realization that Trap would be brilliant, as there’s no real mystery series right now. While I’d love to see Ohba/Obata, whether together or separately, go on to create even more completely unrelated brilliant series, I’d also be more than happy to see a full-fledged series derived from one of the ideas in Bakuman.

    Hmm… kinda like Kujibiki Unbalance, but with less suck, huh?

    Doesn’t sound like too bad of an idea.
