The writing style and context is very similar to Beck. .
Same concept, a boy with a dream trying his earnest to succeed in becoming a mangaka with some metaphysical involved.
The author does a pretty good job initially engaging you to the story. Dreams, hard work, effort and so on are part of the attributes involved, in a way, Beck.

So how does the story fall flat? Simply it has pacing issues. There are chapters that are pointless.
People talking non-stop without saying anything relevant that progresses the story, develops characters or being funny. Take the island ark for example and the myths involved around it.
The author will go to such lengths, that he will even show the protagonist's manga work, which is not only uninteresting but breaks immersion and pacing as well.
There are also many characters involved and some of the main ones, seem forgotten as the story progresses. Even Rin (which is the name of the manga) or the other girl the protagonist hangs out with don't make much appearance after the middle of the story, but I guess is more relevant to show us a manga inside a manga than actually progress the plot...

The characters as well don't show much feeling. The protagonist doesn't seem to agonize about his family issues whatsoever or show much change in expressions which is actually more interesting than him drawing non stop.
It doesn't even affect his social life or his work which is ridiculous.
I have seriously not seen him contemplate about his sister. There could be so much more character development there it is just that the author doesn't really care. So much pointless chat resolving around manga and again like Beck, not much about protagonist's personal life, and even when mentioned are cryptic or unresolved.
The amount of times that an important event in protagonist's life is happening just to after few pages have it followed by pointless xyz person talking about what he did regarding xyz story is beyond annoying.

The first 20-25 chapters of this manga didn't really have me intrigued, as it seemed far shallow, but I can happily say that I was entirely wrong. The last 10 chapters have been absolutely fantastic, and have completely revitalized my interest. The long running theme of 'choosing the right path' has gained much more depth, even making you question which path is the right one!

If you look for a manga carefully devised this a rare opportunity to enjoy one of this kind.
I've felt impelled to re-read the story yet twice and the plot keeps seeming fresh to me. Yet you can feel that sometimes the story unwraps a little bit slowly but in my opinion it's made with mastery and when you consider the whole arc the result is plenty of emotion and thrill. My ten points (I expect no regret later this smile

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
It was good initially ......but went downhill. With no character development neither plot improvement....and then the plot is concentrated on rape on female lead..................and thus chapters are dragged .......the female lead .is unrealistic she can see future and past.......but meh. Can't see. That a rape was coming.......she wanders in dangerous lone place ..inspite of surrounding by rape filled eyes. Men got no brain so don't read it not a bit realism..
Male mc is wussy and gutless,, and has creepy smile on his face 24x7...
His personality is completely different from what shown in above poster

Bakuman+Beck = Rin

Harold Sakuishi has taken too many references from Bakuman and mixed it with the general structure from Beck. The surrealistic element in Rin doesn't feel as powerfull as the premonitión dream we often saw in Beck. On the other hand we can see more tragedy in Rin tha in his previous masterpiece.
Beck turned out to be my favorite manga together with The Breaker(the first seinen serialization) and Genshiken, so this deserves my patience, also the very beggining of Beck was kind of wierd too.
With his previous work as reference I do hope to not get dissapointed, even so i'm not expecting the same kind of sensations i got with Beck's lives, it's impossible in this kind of manga ¿Or maybe it isn't?

We'll see, chapter 14 at the moment and I think is definitely getting better.

This is a gem, like the reviews below stated "Sakuishi does it again". Two seemingly unrelated people thorugh a series of events, mind you the events were not awkwardly chained to get those two meeting, they felt pretty natural. After that is where the real story begins.
Rin's characters are especially powerful and unique. The personalities were very unique in themselves and make this manga very interesting to read even if it was just the characters themselves. But there is also this added element of mystery surround (kinda spoiler) the death of the old master, and that really adds to what the manga has to offer. On another note, I epescailly love the symbolism above anything else, they are so straightforward yet complex, and really adds to the individual"ness" of the characters. Well, I got tire of writing, but really you just gotta read it for yourself!

I am at chapter 10. I like the set-up. Despite appearance, it is not Bakuman. It does a nice job marrying the supernatural with the slice of life, working up a really nice rhythm.

However, I can't seem to care about the crud that Fushimi is supposed to be writing,

Anyway, early days, will try again in a couple of years.

A manga about making mangas from one of my favorite mangaka, I couldn't be happier. I like what Bakuman has done but I'm interested in what a writer of Sakuichi's caliber can give to this genre. So far, so good. ^^

Looks very promising. The premise might be something you've encountered before, but for everyone who loved Beck this will be a great read too. The only thing I can't cope with is that Sakuishi is able to put so little story in so many pictures.
