Manga/anime about young professional manga artists are extremely common and the Nexus studio 2018 production really doesn’t add much to the genre. It leans heavily on the cliché of four super-cute stereotypical high school girls all drawing manga together. This time though it is not a doujin circle as they live in a shared dorm that their publisher seems to have setup just for them. As such it is quite the absurd fantasy. It is of no surprise that manga artists write stories about manga artists, nor is it of any surprise that the genre feature loads of ultra-kawaii teenage girls, yet when you put the two together you are in la-la-land. Then throw in the next level of absurdity, that their editor, their dorm matron and their school teacher were schoolfriends and former teenage manga artists, then the story gets even more extremely contrived. That is not to say that this cannot be done well. The comedy-romance (Doga Kobo 2014) “Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun” was probably the best example. The setup here doesn’t break any moulds. Kaoruko Moeta is a shy girl struggling to produce a commercially viable manga. Her editor suggest she transfers to a shared dorm that she will share with three girls her own age who are professional manga artists. These are Koyume Koizuka (shojo), Ruki Irokawa (teen love) and Tsubasa Katsuki (shonen). All girls are in their first year in high school with Koyume and Kaoruke newly transferring in. The story is based upon the four-panel manga written and illustrated by Kaori Hanzawa. The fan-service kicks in at episode five at the beach. The highlight of the show comes in around episode six when a fifth girl joins the dorm to insert some novelty to the setup. From that point on the show coasts to an inevitable conclusion. It lacks surprises and has too few protagonists to shake it up. Very hum drum.
