Even over 20 years later this manga has the industry all figured out.
Especially the parts about hentai and the slice of life meets X (here it´s trains of all things) are hysterical but sadly true. Don´t sit here and read my review just read it now.
What i would give for a revival but Bakuman was good too.

A very silly look at what it takes to be a mangaka. Some of it is spot-on though, especially the "how to draw a [insert genre here] manga".
