How should I go about writing these Bakuman posts anymore? I’m out of things to say, and I’m getting tired of poking fun at it. To be fair, this was one of the stronger episodes in a while. I just don’t have anything left to say.
It was always my intent to extend the deadline for the spring season, but after some thinking, I figured it made no sense to lock out the other 50 weeks of the year and potentially miss out on talented writers. So the “join the team” option is now a persistent navigation item above. With that said, the deadline for the spring season has been extended to Saturday, March 5. Two weeks is much more symmetrical than 8 days. Click the join link to apply.
Am I going senile? When did Yumeji injure his ankle?
In the bizarro world that is the MAL forums, Bakuman is beloved. Mashiro is beloved. And satan spawn are enjoying a killer ski season in the depths of hell.
No alliteration required.
Ok, let’s go ahead and get the question that no one’s been asking out of the way. Isana has by far the best body of anyone on the show and she also had the cutest bikini. So Isana > everyone else. Any fanservice war veterans can now proceed to the unemployment line to receive your checks. Thank you for participating.
And by man of the house, I mean, you know this story centers around Mashiro because everyone acquiesces to his demands. Mashiro rules with an iron fist! All women and less alpha men be damned! In other words, Mashiro is a conceited, self-centered prick who deserves to reap what he sows, except he won’t because he’s the default protagonist.
Little bit of an odd episode here, as I’m not sure John Doe’s sudden Oracle-ness turn makes sense considering his history of attacking Yumeji, but let’s run with it.
Dammit. Dammit. Dammit. I really enjoyed the first 20 minutes of this episode. And being with Nizuma, Nakai and Fukuda has been a tremendous great influence on Mashiro. But just when things were lining up well, and Mashiro was getting back in my good graces, the shit went completely off the rails again. This is the most exasperating show I’ve ever watched.
