    Summary
    • The story of Mashiro and Takagi as they strive to become prominent manga artists
    • Though a successful career is their goal, Mashiro simply wants the blessing of his crush, Miho
    • A heartfelt exploration of the trials and tribulations faced by manga artists, and how they prevail
    Description
    The plot begins when Moritaka Mashiro, a junior high student, forgets his notebook in class. His classmate, Akito Takagi, notes Mashiro's drawings in it and asks him to become a manga artist to his stories. Mashiro declines, citing his late manga artist uncle, who died from overworking. Takagi incites Mashiro to meet with Miho Azuki, Mashiro's crush, and tells her the two plan to become manga artists. In response, Azuki reveals her plans to be a voice actress. Mashiro proposes to her that they should both marry when Azuki becomes a voice actress for the anime adaptation of their manga. The two then start creating their manga, under the pen name Muto Ashirogi, in hopes of getting serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump.

    Nominated for the 3rd Manga Taisho Award (2010).
