With two episodes left of this season’s Bakuman, I can’t help but feel that things will turn out well soon. Is it wrong to wish that things go badly for certain characters?
I’m not spoiling anything by telling you that Perfect Crime Club gets serialized early in the episode. Well I am, I guess, but you should have seen that coming. Takagi and Mashiro get all the standard congratulatory phone calls, followed by the news of a replacement editor. Yay.
The sly and overly attractive Azuki slips a surprise USB drive in her delicious cake. An act worthy of the Crime Club itself. Not that I was, but was anyone else hoping it had some half-naked photos on it?
Otters 11 action figure, lol.
Hattori, switches places with the human garbage can Miura, meaning the chubby editor takes over +Natural. Of course, now that the two editors have switched assignments, the sexy Iwase is left with the very un-sexy Miura, which is what super villains should get in the end, isn’t it?
What else…Fukuda is all psyched up over the return of Ashirogi Muto and he also, of course, won’t lose to anyone. Mashiro has a bit of a level up as he realized he can have more flexibility with his art if Takagi writes in non-storyboard form. Ok.
How can Hattori still be surprised by Ashirogi’s dedication to excellence? I’d love to see Bakuman Season 24, when the editor exclaims, for the 17,132nd time, “They’re so driven, for two successful 45-year-old men!” I keep asking these moral questions but, is it wrong to fantasize about Hattori giving it to Iwase from behind? Not that I do, but I was curious all the same. My mind wonders during fluffy anime. Sometimes my hand too, but usually just my mind–ok…
Next week seems to be the last episode. Will Mashiro and Takagi finally not lose out Nizuma Eiji? Let me watch the preview and tell you what happens. Why is there so much walking in openings and endings. It really says a lot about a society. Ok, it looks like in the finale serialization of Perfect Crime Club takes place and all the authors won’t lose to each other. Surprise!
