Preview: Bakuman 2Posted: October 29, 2011
Of course, right after I say I plan to get a post out a day, I fall behind schedule. Though I’m hoping to finish this before midnight, and then I’ll be able to write up the next post to be published tomorrow morning. I’ll have to see how this plays out.
It’s likely to be that way though, considering this preview won’t be too long or sophisticated since it’s a sequel.
Time for more slow plot progression! It seems like the second season is following the same speed the last one did, which is about two chapters an episode. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but you know, slow is slow.
At least Hiramaru is in this season. Near the end of the first season, they had been teasing his appearance quite a few times; probably because they know how much fans like him. Who doesn’t like him? He’s a funny dude. Admittedly most jokes involve laughing at him, but hey, a source of humor is a source of humor.
Other than Hiramaru, this season will also cover Mashiro and Takagi now that they’ve entered the manga industry, meaning all of their problems will revolve around that, as opposed to the difficulty of getting into the industry, which the first season covered. I personally find these issues much more interesting, so I’m expecting this season to be better as a result.
If you watched the first season and liked it even a bit, I’d recommend watching this season.
