How did I miss this?
There is a Bakuman anime series!!!!
Top student Akito is willing to do anything to become
a hit writer in the Japanese comics industry, including
manipulating his unsure classmate Mashiro into becoming
his illustrator. Before long, the pair have their backs up
against the wall, fighting for a chance to get noticed in the
intense world of manga publishing. But then, an unlikely
series of events puts them face-to-face with what real comic
artists have to give up: love, health, and maybe even their
futures. Get ready for a compelling race through the world
of publishing not limited to glimpses into the industry, but
all-out panoramic views packed with insider details!
If it is half as good as the Deathnote series, then this should be great! Looks like i know what I am doing over Thanksgiving weekend!!!
