General ★★★★★

Even though I've already read the manga, the Anime still keeps me excited

That's how good it is

Just like the manga, every episode ends at exciting point

Story ★★★★★

Both main characters had their heroines in the start

The effort they put into the their work alone the way attracted many other female characters

and they never changed their heart

The psychological descriptions of characters are nice (the story writer really put a lot of effort into this)

As for the main Story

those who never watch/read this Anime might think there isn't much to tell in drawing manga story

That's not true, every difficulty they have overcome, another one soon pops up

I'm not gonna discuss about the difficulties they have overcame, You will know what I mean once you watch/read it

CG ★★★★☆

One small negative thing I have to say is, the Anime production is too focused on speed

Environment and Character expression are not detail enough(exp: light/dark effect)

The manga does much better performance on this part

Altho it's two different platform, hard to compare

Other than that, the anime quality is good

Design ★★★★★

You might be familiar with this drawing style

yes, the art is done by the same artist of Death note, Hikaru no go etc

and like all his works, story is done by someone else

As for bakuman, it is the same writer who wrote death note

Music ★★★★☆

No noticeable BGM, but I really like the OP and 1st ED

Especially the OP lyric uses strive, dream as theme, really nice

See you again on season 3

Plot

The plot begins when Moritaka Mashiro, a junior high student, forgets his notebook in class. His classmate, Akito Takagi, notes Mashiro's drawings in it and asks him to become a manga artist to his stories. Mashiro declines, citing his late uncle, a mangaka, who died from overwork. Takagi incites Mashiro to meet with Miho Azuki, Mashiro's crush, and tells her the two plan to become mangaka. In response, Azuki reveals her plans to be a voice actress. Mashiro proposes to her that they should both marry when Azuki becomes a voice actress for the anime adaptation of their manga. The two then start creating their manga, under the pen name Muto Ashirogi, in hopes of getting serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump.

After submitting many one-shots to Shueisha, Ashirogi begin with their first published series in Weekly Shōnen Jump, Detective Trap, which is eventually canceled due to its declining popularity. Their next series is the gag manga Run, Daihatsu Tanto!, which they gave up on realizing it would never be popular. Their current series Perfect Crime Party, has been met with considerable popularity but due to its theme, is unfit for an anime series. When their rival, Eiji Nizuma, submits a one-shot for serialization, Ashirogi competes by submitting Reversi which replaces Perfect Crime Party while the latter is moved to Shueisha's fictional monthly magazine, Hisshou Jump. Reversi is later chosen for an anime adaptation with Miho as one of the voice actresses after a public audition. After fulfilling their dreams, the series ends with Mashiro officially proposing to Miho at the place they made the promise followed by their first kiss.
