Noooo.... I knew it was coming, but now that it's confirmed it feels so sad. One of my favorite slice-of-life's for sure.

Is this anime good? Once the Anime Ends, I'll give it a try.

I've heard it's a pretty commendable adaption of the manga.

The manga is slightly better, but you can't go wrong with the anime either. It goes really in-depth in the process of creating manga, and it wouldn't be a stretch to say that I've learned more from Bakuman than any other series out there.

The 50 episodes across 2 seasons only cover around half the series though, so by the time the anime ends you'll some catching up to do.

Maybe now Obata can work on something similar to Death Note again

I haven't started Bakuman and I will (I'm sure its great), but Obata can do better than this (not as bad as Arakawa writing about farming though). I hope he does something similar to Death Note as well. :]
