Bakuman Season 2
Date/Year Released:October 1, 2011 Date/Year Ended: March 24, 2012 Epsiode Count: 25
(Since I've already given a summary on my last card about season 1) Season 2 focuses more on Mashiro and Tagaki handling their weekly manga, living up to their new editor's expectations and beating their rivals in the charts. As Mashiro and Takagi finally get a weekly manga they fall for the stress that comes with it. Working 24/7, nights without rest and the stress of coming up something new every week...which Mashiro gets hit the hardest with. Just as they get a new Manga, they also get a new editor...a new editor with new ideas set for them, which begins to interfere with their morals as a team and desires. As there manga progresses, Mashiro and Tagaki become obsessed with ranking high in charts that it takes them down to the wrong path, that manga becomes more important to Mashiro then his love for Azuki.
Honestly, Season is 2 SO much more entertaining and better than Season 1, not that Season 1 isn't good(cause it is), but it is just Season 2 sparks my interest more because there is just more to be interested in: action, drama and love triangles - or squares. I can say for sure that this is when the stress of being a mangaka really hits Mashiro, and though it sad to see, it makes you wanna watch episode after episode, so basically, Mashiro's struggle is my entertainment(don't blame me, I watch/read a lot Tokyo Ghoul, it's ruined me internally). I am not into love as much unless the story is very unique, but I gotta say, I had way too much fangirling with this season over ships(especially Mashiro and Asuki), and crazy screaming over NOTP that would sometimes appear. I think during the 2nd season I learned more about background characters and their true personalities. Overall, this season was great, it is a must watch. Now if you want me to review an anime or manga comment below the name; I will only review the Manga series/animes that I have read/seen, but I may watch a anime you request depending on the episode count. Also this may not be my finalized review, I slowly change, edit and reinforce my reviews every now and then.
