Got excited watching Bakuman. It made me realize what types of anime I adore. l like anime that has goals and showing how the main characters are going about accomplishing those goals. Especially career related and show the real work that goes into it. I may be prone to this because of my own need to plan and have goals. The best part to me is planning something out then executing it.
The shows that I think do a good job at this is Skip Beat!, NANA, Lemon Angel Project and of course Bakuman. Some other series that may not be career oriented but good nonetheless are Toradora, It started with a Kiss. Each character went in knowing what they wanted and started the process to work toward those goals.
If anyne reads this and think of some other shows that follow these types of patterns I would love to hear about them!
Until next time!
