The Nerd Cabinet Reports:
"The first episode sets the scene rather nicely. We meet our main protagonist, Mashiro, who sits doodling away in a notebook. We learn in this episode a whole lot of background story. Mashiro’s uncle was a Mangaka who worked himself to the bone, and Mashiro as a child was very close to his uncle – this theme repeats itself throughout the series, and spurs the characters on their quest to become Manga artists themselves. As the story progresses, Mashiro and Akito meet."
