Bakuman is a new Shonen manga by the creators of Death Note; Tsugumi Obha and Takeshi Obata.
The first chapter was released in Japan on August 11.
Bakuman is about two 9th grade boys who aspire to be Mangakas; Manga Artists.
So. I read the first chapter. Around 50 pages, they make references to Death Note, and even the creators~ It's a pretty good manga so far, I happen to like it. You can read it here ( http://www.onemanga.com/Bakuman/1/001/ ).
Thoughts? Anybody read it? I don't think it'll be as awesome as Death Note, but it's made by the same two creators, so maybe it'll end up being cool!
