Bakuman Season 2 Episode 1

Finally, this season’s started…I’ve been waiting so long. The season starts off where the last season ended, with Miura taking over as editor for Saiko and Shujin. The opening theme is delightfully mellow like last season’s was. Also from the opening theme, I see a lot of scenes that I recognize from the manga. Hopefully, this season gets farther than the first season did…the anime is soooo far behind. Anyways, back to the show. Hattori explains to Saiko and Shujin about the transfer of editors and the two get to know Miura. Miura also mentions Kazuya Hiramaru, who was only mentioned in the first season. Basically, while Nizuma Eiji is a genius due to his love of manga ever since he first started drawing, Kazuya is a genius in that he had no experience with manga and was able to suddenly start and create good manga. Also, the two are told about the New Year’s party for the mangaka, which they are now invited to attend. Next up, Saiko and Shujin meet their assistants (with Shujin freaking out because one of them is a girl). The day of the New Year’s party comes, and Shujin overdresses (lol…suit). At the party, Saiko and Shujin meet Kazuya, who turns out to be one of those lazy geniuses. He hates to create manga (because he originally thought it would be less work than his desk job), but his editor basically forces him. Saiko meets with a man who was friends with his uncle, resolving to him that he will accomplish what his uncle couldn’t. The ending theme is pretty good too. The music has the same sort of feel as the first season, and I think the pattern works well. The anime stays faithful to the manga (which is a lot easier because the manga is soooo far ahead), and I really like that because of how good the manga is. Looks like next week is going to be the episode with Azuki’s photobook…but more on that later 😀
