I have to say, I loved Bakuman. Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata make a great team. I thought so with Death Note, and I think so on Bakuman. The story of Bakuman is so amazing, with so many ups and downs and ups and downs and so on. I found myself not wanting to stop reading because I wanted to see what happened with Ashirogi Muto's stories and how Mashiro and Takagi made it through every obstacle. It also was great to see that Ohba and Obata could develop gripping stories inside of one large story. Along the same lines, the art was really well done. It was great to see so many different styles done by the pair inside of the story, from chibi-like to fairly realistic to animals. The characters were really well done and very believeable to me. I really like Mashiro, Takagi, Azuki, Kaya, Fukuda, Aoki, and so on and so forth. There were only a few characters that I feel didn't live up to expectations, and the way that Eiji just kind of disappeared after that last sight. Overall, the manga was really well done, and I hope the team can come up with something even better, just like Mashiro and Takagi!
