From MangaHelpers:

Sagara Masamune is a manga author who isn't very successful, and it's looking like it's time to end his battle manga. To go for an unexpected ending, he plans to kill off the main heroine, Nina, in a dramatic way. As he works on his manga, he is mysteriously sucked into the pages. Now he's trapped in the world of his own creation, with his protagonists, exorcists Haru and Nina. He doesn't really get what's happening, but he thinks concluding the manga, which involves orchestrating Nina's death, might get him back home. [tethysdust]

A manga worth the one or two hours put into reading it; preferably in one sitting. SilentReaderReviews's review, in my opinion, adeptly portrays the manga.
In my opinion the action isn't good, neither is the humor, nor the 'adventure'; however, the manga, from how I see it, pivots on the protagonist (ie the mangaka in the story), and how he experiences his story under pressure of cancellation.
For those that are exclaiming about the pacing/twist/etc in the manga; I do believe that is the point, as it is a manga about a mangaka's manga being cancelled/axed. If you have never read a manga that is being axed/cancelled this manga will be significantly less interesting then otherwise, most likely. Perhaps I am being a bit lenient in this case but that is how I take it.
So, overall a decent manga worth some time if you aren't looking for any significant amount of action/humor/'adventure'. Truthfully I don't even know why it has an adventure tag.

Reflecting on One's Own Work

This story is mostly about a mangaka seeing their work at the ground level, coming face to face with each creative compromise, bout of laziness, and lack of forethought that plagued them during the creative process, and then having to work through that all the way to messy end. It's also about how outside influences (the editor) change this process, sometimes making it harder and sometimes making it easier through their additions. One route the story could have gone is that the mangaka could have given the characters more substance and then tried to extend the manga, but the decision to wrap it up was both the correct one and the one that the story had the greatest difficulty in doing. The ending took many chapters when arguably it could have been done in one to convey its message, and the ultimate wrap-up felt more like a jab at editors than the constant effort to try one's best which it was aiming for.

What a good read this was, with all the twists and turns I was never board. If you decide to read this manga you'll want to read it in one setting. But once it's over you'll probably ask yourself, "is that all?" and yes that's all. While it is a fun twisty turny rollercoaster taking you all over the place, it lacks depth. That's right I'm complaining about the depth of a manga about a mediocre manga smile
I just feel that the character could have been more detailed in terms of dialog and character. I think that even the mangaka himself was a bit mediocre in this story and could have used some development outside of the story. For Example when he returned to his world after learning his manga was going to be cancled, the author could have sent him through his neighborhood contemplainting or thinking about the characters then sending him back to his manga. Everything is rushed and with out details but over all it is a creative way to write a story and was enjoyable to read. Looking foward to future work from this author good luck ^^

It started good enough however the story twisted too much around itself and at the end become worthless. The idea itself had quite a lot of potential. Too bad it was so badly crushed.

Weird and interesting, but the plot (what little it was) is pretty much everywhere. In the end, it's a story about a mangaka acquiring the confidence in his ability to create a intriguing story.

It was an eventful ride. Even though the pacing of the story was all over the place I would still recommend one read of the entire series (just 19 chapters/4 volumes) because it was a refreshing and interesting take on the story within a story trope. Even if it is a bit abrupt, the ending is satisfying. Looking forward to more from the author in the coming years.

This is one unique manga. The concept: a mangaka put into his own manga. Simple, right? No. He needs to find out how to return to his real world, but has no clue how. (Trying not to spoil here). Anyway, it's interesting so far and hopefully will grab more attention in the future~.

I'm pretty mixed on this. I like the premise, even though it's basically Kurt Vonnegut playing himself in every book he's made, and the plot has some decent twists.

The problem is it does a little too good of a job at imitating a mediocre manga. It kind of ends up flying a little too close to the sun on that point.

have a good thing on its own.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
but so far. I kinda able to guess how it would developed or how it would end, so i hope it'll exceed my expectation.

gave it 7.9/10 cause I think it still can't reach 8 yet..

not really important (just what i always do):
I think, you shouldn't read the description, well if you haven't read it yet.. just look at the genre, its categories and its rating. and decide to read it/not..

This is the most interesting manga I've read in ages.
I can't even express the HYPE I'm getting while reading.
All I can think of while reading was "HOLY SHIT THIS MANGA".
