When junior high school student Mashiro Moritaka forgot his notebook in class, fellow classmate Takagi Akita saw Mashiro’s drawings in it and instantly asked him to become the manga artist to his stories. However, Mashiro declined his offer as his late uncle, a manga artist, died from overwork.

Takagi then incited Mashiro to meet with Azuki Miho, Mashiro’s crush, and told her that they planned to become manga artists. Azuki revealed that she wanted to become a voice actress and thus Mashiro proposed to her that they should both marry when Azuki became a voice actress for the anime adaptation of their manga.

Mashiro and Takagi then started creating their manga under the pen name Ashirogi Muto, in hopes of getting serialized in Weekly Shounen Jump.

Stunning work by Bandit Ying as Mashiro and Shuui as Takagi! I really need to pick up this series soon seeing that I too want to be a successful mangaka some day. Thanks to Misaka for sending this in!
