Fujimoto really just went and made another masterpiece. As an artist and as an otaku this story hit home for me. The relationship one has with art is really challenging, and the folks around you can either hinder your progress or encourage you to keep going forward. This was depicted perfectly throughout Look Back. There was also a few surprise twists that gave me flashbacks to what happened with KyoAni. I can't help but wonder if this is Fujimoto's way of writing a tribute towards the studio and those who passed. Absolutely brilliant work, brilliant art, and well written characters within 142 pages.
Pretty ok manga about two school kids adapting the mangaka role. I do wish the author could give the character development time in this manga because I didn't know who's who lol. Regardless the read is good!
