Directors Kenichi Kasai & Noriaki Akitaya, staffs of previous season set to return for Season 3.
The 39th issue of the Shueisha magazine Weekly Shonen Jump this year has announced on Monday that the third season of the popular anime series Bakuman. is set to air this October 06.
On the third season, the focus will be on Moritaka & Akito’s new PCP manga as it continues to rise on top of magazine readers’ popularity surveys.
The third season will retain the staffs from the previous series, which includes directors Kenichi Kasai & Noriaki Akitaya, and script editor Reiko Yoshida. The anime will be produced by the anime studio J.C. Staff.
Bakuman. is an anime adaptation of a shonen manga series written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata, the same creative team responsible for the hit series Death Note.
The story is focused on the life of Moritaka Mashiro, who is a junior high school student, content to live out a relatively normal life as any other does, which was persuaded by his classmate, Akito Takagi, to become an aspiring mangaka when the latter realizes his natural talent as an artist. However, Moritaka is reluctant to pursue his dream as his uncle, once a mangaka with his own serializations, died from overwork trying to regain his lost status. With Akito’s help, Takagi gets another classmate and his school crush, Azuki Miho, who is an aspiring voice actress, to voice in the anime adaptation of their future manga once it is completed. However, Mashiro also proposes to Azuki, who surprisingly accepts only on the condition she will marry him when both of them have achieved their dreams. With a goal set before him, Mashiro begins a long and struggling path to become a famous mangaka. (Synopsis from Anime News Network)
