Moritaka Mashiro feels as if life is passing him by; with no dreams or motivation, he trudges through day-to-day life. One day, after leaving his notebook behind, he returns to school and finds the smartest guy in class, Takagi, waiting for him. Takagi is happy to return the book, but on the condition that Mashiro agrees to become a mangaka with him. Though Mashiro initially declines, he soon reconsiders when he discovers that the girl he likes, Azuki, dreams of becoming a voice actress. And after promising that she can have the lead role if their manga is ever adapted into an anime, he suggests that they get married once they are both successful! Shockingly, she agrees to the proposal and Mashiro and Takagi embark on their quest to become manga artists.
This show is centered around Doujinshi (Fan Manga). Kazuki is a senior in high school, who doesn't really know what to do with his future. His friend Taishi drags him into the world of Doujinshi, where he tries to make and sell his Doujinshi to the masses and learn what it really means to be a real Doujinshi artist.
Both shows are about people who make manga. And both shows have romance elements. If you like one you will probably like the other.
Both animes are about making manga. If you enjoy stories about mangaka then these are both must sees. Comic Party is about creators of doujin and a little more of a comedy; Bakuman is about two guys trying to make a mainstream manga series. If you like one you might like the other.
Genshiken has won its own sales booth at the upcoming ComiFes, and so for the first time they will be participating as a seller instead of navigating through the convention crowds. The club, now with a couple of new members and Sasahara as the chairman, combines the talents of its various members and begins working on its debut doujinshi release. With members having various personal matters to take care of and the deadline rapidly approaching, will they be able to complete it in time?
If you liked Genshiken 1 or 2, you would also like Bakuman because both focus on aspects of manga writing and the methods in which they are created. Both are comedies, featuring manga fans (or otaku) and center around similar comedic themes, while making references to prexisting titles. While Genshiken is more comedy-centric compared to Bakuman's comedy-drama, they both cover the relationships between manga anime-lovers and those outside of the loop.
Both depicts the process and terms used in the manga and anime culture in a good depth and how this type of media industry works In Japan. those also show, in their own manner, how hard and how complex to make an anime or a manga.
Sawako Kuronuma is just like any other high school girl who wants to make friends and be useful. The only problem is she bears a worrying resemblance to Sadako from 'The Ring!' Because of her reputation, people are not only terrified of her, but small dogs even bark in fear at her presence; in fact, the only person in school who will talk to her is the lively class hottie, Kazehaya. As the pair spends more time together, Kazehaya slowly begins to bring Sawako out of her shell and soon their feelings for each other develop further. Though with her crippling insecurities, lack of social skills, and a series of cruel rumors and misunderstandings, it seems that Sawako's dream of a normal life won’t be quite so easy to obtain.
On the face of it these series have little in common,but dig a little deeper and there is a lot that they share. Both focus on the relationships of students, and in both series these relationships are broken down to a microscopic scale, so that each text or lingering glance becomes a momentous event. It works to great effect and you can't help but get caught up in the romance of it all. The shows also share a similar visual flair, as well as slower pacing. If you enjoyed one of these shows I'd highly recommend checking out the other!
Well first off Bakuman is Shounen and Kimi ni Todoke is Shoujo, but they are very similar in the aspects of romance. Very sensitive character relationships
Kyoko moves to the big city with the prince of her dreams Shotaro; he wants to make it big in the entertainment business, so she works hard at many different jobs to support him as he achieves his dream. However, one day, Kyoko accidentally discovers the horrible truth: the love of her life thinks of her as a 'plain and boring woman!' Outraged, Kyoko swears revenge – she will make it even bigger than Shotaro in the entertainment world. The only question is, how will she fulfill her desire?
Both of these anime are about dreams, in Bakuman this is to become a successful manga artist and turning their manga into an anime, and in Skip Beat! this is getting revenge and also becoming a successful actress.
While Skip Beat! focuses around the main character making it big as an actress, and Bakuman focuses around the leads becoming mangakas, they both have to deal with the characters reaching their dreams.
Tatsuhiro Sato is a university dropout and a "hikikomori" – a person suffering from social withdrawal. To Sato’s dismay, his self-imposed exile from the world is rudely interrupted when a mysterious girl knocks on his door. She has charged herself with the task of curing Sato of his hikikimori ways! Now, as new problems ranging from hentai games to internet suicide spring up, can Sato manage to overcome his hermit-like ways, or will the imaginary N.H.K conspiracy force him to remain a hikikomori forever?
These two titles clearly share core similarities. Main character males, struggling with peculiar relationships, all revolving around the Japanese "nerd" culture of manga, games, etc.
Well one point of plot, main or not, dosen t realy matter is about creating something, weather it is manga or galge game.
