Bakuman Movie (2015)


“Moritaka Mashiro (Takeru Satoh) doesn’t want to follow in the path of his uncle who worked as a manga artist, but ultimately died because of exhaustion. Moritaka Mashiro figures he will graduate from school and work at an office. Things change though when he falls in love with a girl at school. The girl, who hopes to become a voice actress, tells Moritaka they can marry, but only after they both achieve their dreams. Moritaka then teams up with fellow classmate Akito Takagi (Ryunosuke Kamiki) to publish their first manga”

Finally, you can watch Bakuman online. I have been waiting for this live action movie adaptation for about six months. Although I have definite craziness for Takeru Satoh, but of course I want to see how it works on the big screen.

Bakuman tells us the journey of two 14 year old boy in their quest to become a successful Manga artist and writers. It’s a wonderful series about the hardship of making Manga, and what goes on behind the creation and publishing, which was my favorite parts in the movie. It illustrates also how this person withstands the adversity of making their dreams possible.

Though I finished only the season 1 of anime version, I would say the movie is pleasingly captivating  which makes the story more relevant.  I just found the romance is the weakest part among the scenes.

My verdict is 9/10.


“There are going to be times when you learn more about the world you’re entering and feel defeated when you see the gap between the ideal and the reality… But that’s something we’ll all face. The people that face those obstacles and overcome them are people whose dreams come true.”
