It is the story of two boys, Machizo and Tetsuo, who create manga together.

Machizo's father is a successful mangaka (manga artist). Machizo feels he's living under his father's shadow, and resents his father's success.

Tetsuo, who is at school with Machizo, enjoys drawing manga and is good at it. His favorite mangaka happens to be Machizo's father. The two boys strike up an alliance to draw a successful manga to win a contest, with Machizo writing the story and Tetsuo drawing the graphics. An important part is also played by a violent girl named Kimiko, who has a crush on Tetsuo.

GSHD boils down to:
2. You love manga more than me! (anyone and everyone)
3. Manga = Serious Business.

Add a generous dose of wangst and a light sprinkling of gratuitous sex and you get this manga. Worth reading if and only if you like teenage melodrama. Not my sort of thing, alas.

Well, I read this in (mostly) one go, and it's .. well, (expletively) amazing. The drama is excellent, the character interactions and revelations.. maybe it doesn't fit into a stereotypical type of manga, asides from the rising-artist's-tribulations sort of thing, but it's worth reading. I thought it was actually BL, but it's not, though you still shouldn't read this if you can't handle the mature themes.

It's not like shoujoy smut where everything is all lovey-dovey, and the couple ends up together for the rest of their lives, etc. I think the most touching and brilliant part of this manga is that despite the fact that the realities that the two main characters experience are different from ours, Nihonbashi-sensei portrays it in a shockingly realistic way. She isn't afraid to pick through the thoughts that are usually absent from manga--there's shame, the complexities of love, and shattered pride, and self-hatred... It's not just a manga-approach to the world of manga creation, but a story trying to get at the heart of what it's like to have to define and discover yourself.
The art is really good, though I hate Machizo's hair. XD It's a very interesting and distinctive style, reminds me a lot of anime, though not really- it has a crispness and distinctness that sets it apart (asides from the fact that it's, you know, printed as opposed to animated xD).
But, it's amazing. The plot is great--keeps you twisting in your seat the whole way through. I wish I could finish it, since it's simply so good so far that I can't imagine the ending..

Even if you like shoujo, or shounen, or don't care about slightly-off-the-wall mangas, you should at least try to read this. The plot is great, the characters are amazingly portrayed, and it's just overall wonderful. (Though if mature themes squick you out, it might not be such a fun ride.. XD; Just a warning!)

Machizo is my favorite teenaged character in manga, hands-down. He really is so believable -- gifted and conflicted and occasionally stupid, just as most adolescents are. His creative struggle to make the perfect manga is gripping and engaging, as is his on-again, off-again friendship with Tetsuo.

The desire to surpass his father is also very cute, and very typical of any boy who's in the same profession as his parents. I really should hand Machizo my copy of Bloom's Anxiety of Influence... He'd learn a lot from it!

The art is not the best, but man, it has a touching story and an ass kicking plot. I highly recommend you to read this manga!
