I caught the first few chapters of this manga in Shonen Jump, and was rather hooked from the beginning. It balances a slow-paced drama and romance with insider technical knowledge of how manga is produced in Japan and remains interesting despite a premise that does not lend itself easily to being described. Since it is a manga about manga, they don’t go into a lot of detail regarding the fictional manga being created but instead focus on interactions between the fictional manga’s creators, friends, and colleagues.
Mostly what I find inspiring about the series is the idea of two people pursing their dream job, regardless of the consequences. The series is still being published in America.
